Allergy symptoms to gluten

Common Questions and Answers about Allergy symptoms to gluten


268911 tn?1213744781 Hello, In my opinion, you seem to be having allergy to gluten and cross reactivity to it. It is the occurrence of allergic reactions to foods that are chemically or otherwise related to foods known to cause allergy in an individual.
Avatar f tn These tests will also rule out gluten sensitive enteropathy (celiac sprue) which is similar in symptoms to gluten allergy.If the allergy tests come out negative,then serological tests will help.Pls consult a gastroenterologist then. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I'm 20 and female. I do not smoke or drink. I am scared after all these symptoms. I haven't been to the doctor yet. It'd mean the world to me to have some professional help. Symptoms since I was young - migraines - cystic like bumps on my pubic area, buttox, armpits, thigh and back.
380253 tn?1204291103 Is a wheat allergy and gluten/celiacs disease much the same???? and are the symptoms the same??? Please someone let me know if the treatment is the same diet etc, Im so mixed up with it all and find it really difficult to get information here in Scotland... I dont know what to eat and what not to eat!! ............Can I eat oats??? for example............... Thank you ...........
Avatar n tn There is a possibility that you are intolerant to gluten (Celiac disease). This gluten is found in malted barley, which is used to make beer and some hard ciders. Some beer also contains wheat. Other beverages sometimes made from wheat, rye, and barley include vodka, whiskey, gin and bourbon. The fact that you are also intolerant to bread and sugars, especially after taking beer, goes more in favor of gluten allergy. There are many types of beer which use a different base like potato or rice.
Avatar n tn I react to wheat/gluten, even though I test negative for allergy tests and Celiac. I have IBS and I clearly have gluten intolerance, regardless of what any of the official tests say. If I want to suffer, all I have to do is eat something I know has gluten in it. Then, it takes forever for the colon to stop cramping and having constipation. I think it's better to just stay away from gluten if you have any doubts or if you're having symptoms.
Avatar n tn I'm allergic to wheat, rye, oats, barley and corn and have been for over 30 years but I don't have Celiac disease. My allergist and gastro doctor consulted with each other and told me that Celiac is wheat intolerance and not true allergy. I, on the other hand, have true allergy. I've never had to avoid gluten and it doesn't bother me. I can also eat foods made with bleached flour, bread, cakes, cookies, etc.
Avatar f tn Have also been told maybe an allergy to wheat/gluten as I also tend to deal with stomach issues. Frankly, I am at the endof my ropes with this because nobody seems to have a definate answer.Any ideas?
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.
Avatar m tn An allergist can do an easy skin test to determine food allergy. Let them know your symptoms and make sure they include wheat and gluten in the test. I suffered with stomach problems for years. On a visit to my allergist (treated for seasonal hayfever) I mentioned my symptoms, they tested my for food allergies and 10 min later I found out I am allergic to eggs. Once I changed my diet, my stomach went back to normal.
Avatar f tn I am wondering if it is typical to experience a combination of GERD and upper respiratory symptoms from a soybean allergy, or would that then mean that I am looking at two completely different issues?
Avatar m tn Is dizziness upon standing a symptom of gluten intolerance, wheat allergy , or oat allergy? 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.
Avatar f tn You are probably allergic to gluten. This is common. Try eating gluten free products for a while. You can find them at the grocery store. They are higher priced, but will save you money at the doctors office. It does cause constipation, swallen tongue, and many other symptoms since it is an allergy. Rice products are the best. My doctor has this problem and so do I. We are white, so our rash is red spots. Mine went away after a few days.
2206935 tn?1373638605 A good friend of mine is allergic to gluten. Her allergy to gluten as well as some other things was discovered in the summer through a blood test. Hope these suggestions are helpful.
6224500 tn?1388947668 I have been to my family doctor regarding the gluten/wheat/flour digestive issues and my endocrinologist is doing a repeat coeliac screen on me. They do not consider me to have allergies to milk/gluten/wheat etc. I might cut out gluten, wheat and milk altogether once the coeliac screen has been done but one thing I have noticed is that one part of my lip has gotten swollen. It's not sore but was first very dry and has now become inflamed and swollen.
Avatar f tn Yep, all that you have listed are symptoms of an allergy. You are fortunate to have figured out the cause so soon! Some people have to go through a lot of investigation to determine what is causing their allergic reactions. All the best.
Avatar f tn If there is an improvement in your symptoms on withdrawing wheat from your diet, then it could be a trigger factor. Maintain a food diary and note down and monitor your symptoms. This may help to narrow down the search. The diagnosis of allergy is difficult to prove or refute. Clinical suspicion and trial of elimination diets are used. An allergy specialist might be able to help you. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
2206935 tn?1373638605 A friend of mine is allergic to guten. Gluten is in many kinds of food including bread. Her allergy to gluten was discovered through a blood test. She no longer eats any products with gluten. There is a really interesting book written by David Permutter MD called " Grain Brain". I'm reading right now as a matter of fact. All the symptoms you are describing such as fatigue, dizziness, feeling anxious, depression can be caused from an allergy to wheat and gluten.
Avatar n tn Hello Mitar, Just finished reading your comments. To know that you are allergic to gluten and seafood I'm assuming you have had an allergy test . Is this correct ? If so when did you have the allergy test ? If it was a while ago, perhaps you should ask your doctor for a referral to your allergist if that is necessary. In Canada, that is the protocol. One can develop new allergies.
Avatar f tn It sounds like you have a food allergy that you are not addressing. Perhaps you are gluten intolerant. I would cut out all gluten containing foods for two weeks and see how you feel.
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.
Avatar f tn a sensitivity to gluten. If you feel better after removing gluten from your diet, then perhaps you are just intolerant. Of course, celiac must be ruled out first. Wheat allergy presents like any other's usually swift and definitive. With any intolerance or allergy, the AMOUNT of the substance you are allergic to is a significant factor in the reaction. How much gluten (not even sure there is gluten in Synthroid) is there in that little, teeny pill?
Avatar f tn Get tested for gluten allergy. It's very common these days. There are about 250 different possible symptoms. I had a friend who had GERD symptoms as her only problem. If you do have a problem with gluten, like Celiac disease, you will feel better when you stop eating gluten AND save yourself from all sorts of other autoimmune diseases down the road. It may annoy you to change your eating, but it will be worth it. Hope you find the problem, whatever it is.
Avatar m tn try not eating gluten my uncle had the same problem and now that he is on the all gluten diet he dont have that problem anymore. it was all due to an allergy to gluten. hopefully you get some help.
Avatar f tn I found that not eating gluten or dairy seemed to lesson the symptoms. I have had an endoscopy, colonoscopy, CT scan, a complete hormone and enzyme work up all with normal results. I was put on xifaxan which made it so that I could eat gluten and dairy without it causing my symptoms to worsen. But I cannot take the medication everyday. The medication also caused me to be bloated all the time. I am at a loss. I have tried everything over the counter with no changes.
Avatar n tn I've been using anti-hypertensives for ten years now starting with Lotensen and then switching to Diovan HCT then to hydroclorothyazide for a year or two then back to Diovan HCT. I am about 20 kgs overweight. I walk every day and when in a good routine 8 kms a day, up and down hills through fields etc.
