  1. Imo yes. I am intolerant to casein (all dairy), eggs, soya, chocolate and more. Also serveral scents/perfumes. Got worse over last 10 years. Just have to live with it. Big plus is that I have been introduced to coconut cream - fantastic...
  2. In addition to what Trent has said, the jury is still out on whether Coeliac (as we say in Scotland) causes food intolerances or whether the lack of gluten in the diet causes then but nevertheless as can be seen in this forum, food intolerances...
  3. Hi Sara In my experience there is no logic to food intolences and like you my first source of info was an IgG test which indicated all dairy, oats, eggs, soya and silly things like MSG, pears and cashew nuts! Through experience I have...
  4. Have read your post with interest. If you look on my profile you will see that like you I have celiac disease and a large number of food intolerances which I am sure are just treated as "fads" when I venture to eat out. Am willing to...
  5. Read up about Zonulin - it might answer a few questions and reduce your stress levels. You are not the only Coeliac with these problem believe me! celiac disease can bring intolerances with it. T
  6. I have trird (oh how I have tried!!!) to eat chocolate but as Julie, above, says, much if it contains dairy and dots and other flavours/chemicals that I csnnot, obviously eat. Neither can my wife who is not a coeliac but wheat intolerant...
  7. Thank you all for this feedback. I had never heard of zonulin but the research seems to be a major move forward. Glysophates I knew about and even have/had Roundup in my garage and have used it often on the driveways. About to read Alessio...

    Just seen this response from 2 years ago! "Experienced Immunologist" is a consultant immunologist at Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I had a very hard job to access this guy but he turns out to be the most experienced...
  9. I don't believe in "coincidences" when it comes to celiac disease. I am getting tired of doctors who say that my multiple food intolerances have no relation to my celiac disease. This website and these many threads say differently. So, is...
  10. You won't get any physician agreeing with this but in IMO yes but not necessarily "allergies ". I am coeliac but also have numerous other "intolerances" which I believe are related to celiac disease. Try laying off dairy (use coconut milk...
  11. As for eating out, I have found anywhere in the UK that in even semi-decent restaurants I can tell them exactly what I want. Look through their menu and pick things you like and tell them what you want and how to cook it. Most decent chefs...
  12. Hi Ken. I know how you feel. I am Coeliac (UK!) with multiple intolerances and it has taken me meny years to isolate exactly what the problem foods are. I cannot really advise you what to eat or to avoid as everyone is different but I can...
  13. Hi, firstly I do not have a medical background but I do suffer from Coeliac. No 'intolerances' linked to celiac disease have been proven but you only need to read comments on this site to see many of us do complain of such. Since being diagnosed...

    I see a number of fellow sufferers have already contacted you but just to add to what they have said, I was diagnosed 6 years ago and over that period I have become intolerant to: All dairy, Eggs, Soya, alcohol, sulhites (in fact all chemical...
