Common Questions and Answers about Allergy and gluten free expo


Avatar m tn It recently just came back and i am trying to go gluten free until i find a way to get passed all this. I know there is rices, gluten free pasta, unbreaded chickens and what not and vegetables. But it is very expensive and i am a college student. So i just meed help finding some cheap easy solutions and maybe some quick foods. I don't always have the means to cook. So microwavable thinks would be amazing if possible. Also, serious question, can i still eat pizza?
Avatar f tn Before changing any child's diet, you really need to consult their pediatrician. This diet thing would probably work for kids who have allergies to wheat and milk. So, get your child allergy tested. I have read that this diet works for some autistic kids, but they have allergies to this stuff. If your child doesn't have allergies to this stuff, you are removing important nutrition from his diet!!! That's what our pediatrician told us.
Avatar f tn Okay, ya ready? You have 3 possibilities here: - celiac disease - non-celiac gluten intolerance - wheat allergy. It gets complicated because many studies and scholarly texts use "celiac disease" and "gluten intolerance" interchangably...they're not the same thing. Celiac is an autoimmune disease. Once you have one autoimmune (Hashi's), you're more prone to developing another (celiac). So, yes, there is a connection. Celiac can be tested for...
Avatar f tn Antibody titers (dilutions) are found to parallel morphological changes in the jejunum and can also be used to reflect compliance with gluten-free diets. Titers decrease or become negative in patients on gluten free diets and reappear upon gluten challenge. The test for anti-endomysial antibodies is more subjective and more complicated for the lab to perform than the anti-gliadin assays. It involves serially diluting some of the patients serum, that is, diluting it by ½ then ¼, 1/8, 1/16, etc.
Avatar m tn Okay thanks a lot, i got a few more questions. I have read that oats don't have gluten is this true, or will they affect people who are gluten intolerant? Im pretty sure they do affect me. Also, is dizziness upon standing a symptom of gluten intolerance, wheat allergy , or oat allergy?
268911 tn?1213744781 So, no villi, no enzyme, no breakdown of the lactose sugar, Some celiacs go on to develop other food intolerances after going gluten free (GF). So far I have been ok on that score. I am dairy free, soy free, and of course gluten free. I am soy free because it is a known goitrogen (thyroid inhibiter) and I have thyroid disease so I don't want to make theose symptoms worse. I am lactose free due to intolerance for 12 years, although I was fine with any dairy before that.
Avatar f tn Before I turn my life upside down with going gluten free, which is very hard since everything has wheat barley and rye in it and so many preservatives. I think I should get checked first. I want to feel better since I have been sickly for 2 years now.
Avatar f tn Eating gluten-free can lead to deficiencies in iron, vitamin B12, vitamin D, magnesium, fiber, and other nutrients .Products which are gluten free may be high in carbohydrates, fat, and sodium and lower in fiber. Homemade products may be more beneficial. A clinical examination will be helpful. Contact a healthcare professional. Keep me posted. Best wishes and take care!
Avatar f tn Hello, my name is Katie and Celiac disease has been in my immediate family for over 9 years, 6 of which i have been gluten free myself. For those you dont know, gluten is within wheat, rye, barely, and oats. Many say that oats are okay to eat, but I personally dont think it is worth the risk of becoming sick from your allergy or your celiac disease. i know what flour to use, recipes, what bread/pasta to buy, and more! So please comment or contact me if you need help or have any questions!

Avatar f tn Hi, There is a fabulous peanut-free and tree nut-free bakery in Northvale called Grandma's Kitchen ( The owner has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts, so she understands and takes it seriously. I use this bakery for all family birthdays, parties, etc... It is such a find... thought I'd share. They can also do gluten-free, egg-free, and milk-free. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn It will be interesting if this allergy becomes less rare with the current trend of gluten free diets and the onslaught of gluten free products on the market. I did not realize that this can be an ingredient in beer! Perhaps a brewmaster friend of yours will come up with a special recipe that you will not react to and name it after you. :-) Thanks again for sharing and I hope it helps someone else as well.
6224500 tn?1388947668 Hello there, Just finished reading your post. You say you eat gluten/wheat/flour/ lactose containing food in the morning. What exact foods do you eat that contain these things ? You mention " eating gluten/lactose containing food and drink. What exactly is this and are you drinking milk, for example. It sounds to me like some food(s) you're eating in the morning are causing the bloating, gas and constipation.
Avatar f tn My whole family is gluten free due to the celiac disease (no idea how to spell it) and i read online this lady makes wonderful gluten free recipes and she says she has chrohn disease and thats how she is able to get it under control by going gluten free.
Avatar f tn I also have selective IgA def which has my entire GI tract sensitive. I think I am going to try a gluten free diet and see if it improves my gastroparesis. People on this site actually claim a gluten free diet will restore your vagus nerve dysfunction if you follow the diet and they are living proof along with digestive enzymes but the big thing was going gluten free. Does anyone know more about this connection? Incredibly interesting.
268911 tn?1213744781 ve discoverd that nuts are no longer my friend. The only thing I have had to eat today was a gluten free pancake and a gluten free breakfast bar which contains nuts. Has anyone else expereinced this? If so how did you handle it? Thanks in advance for any help.
Avatar f tn Could be celiac - if she's finding that wheat/gluten is causing or adding to her symptoms, she definitely needs to tstick to a gluten free diet. You can find gluten free diet guidelines online - it's not going to be easy and you'll have to read or have her read EVERY label, but there are more and more gluten free items out there every day, so it'll be eaiser than it might have been 20 years ago.
1448936 tn?1363206346 ve been dealing with random bouts of diarrhea recently and my cousin was diagnosed last year with a gluten allergy. I know that it can be genetic so I want to try to cut out gluten. However I want to cover lactose intolerance too since I did have cheese and ranch tonight. Does anyone have any useful websites to help me figure out what needs to be eliminated from my diet? Or any personal advice?
