Allergy uk wheat intolerance

Common Questions and Answers about Allergy uk wheat intolerance


Avatar n tn I'm not a doctor, but I have experience with gluten intolerance. It *****, but there are worse things in life. Plus, there are plenty of other foods that one can eat, even if it doesn't seem like it in a Western culture and diet. Gluten intolerance is actually quite common in people. While growing up no one in my family wised up to the fact that my siblings and I had health issues due to gluten intolerance. Now, though, we know better.
Avatar m tn If you could go 2 weeks without sugar, cornstarch (found even in ketchup), dairy, wheat and sugar and then slowly reintroduce dairy and wheat... you could find out if you have a gluten intolerance (to wheat).
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?
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 m tn for a wheat allergy yes, gluten intolerance isnt an allergy so skin test wont work, anyway i can differ between these 2 from symptoms?
Avatar f tn I honestly would not worry about it; if you find you feel better and your symptoms have subsided I would continue eating that way, as I personally have began to the beginning of this year. You have to remember too, the doctor can run a simple blood test to check if you have Celiac, but this test does not determine a lower allergy such as an intolerance or sensitivity to gluten- only a specialized lab can test those variances.
Avatar n tn Recently I started having cramps and all the other yucky symptoms that go along with the allergy. After cutting wheat out for 2 months I feel physically better (Not great!) but my bowel is still in a sorry state and I'm having to take pills to control it. How long will it take for my body to recover? Also, my nan had the same problem and has been able to reintroduce wheat into her diet over a number of years by gradually getting her body used to it.
Avatar f tn To my understanding, any digestion related problems (gluten and lactose especially) occur when there are certain proteins that require enzymes to break them down. So, basically the struggle we have to break these down is actually not an allergy, but a lacking of certain enzymes that can handle the digestion of such proteins. I also tested negative for Celiac, but I have a sensitivity to gluten. And, I am completely lactose intolerant.
Avatar n tn 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. The processing removes whatever is in the wheat that I'm allergic to.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if I have a banana allergy, intolerance or another thing altogether. The last few times I've had bananas I had terrible gas pain centralized around my ribcage and upper back, along with a bloated and queasy feeling. It's happened the worst after having some banana bread. I don't seem to get a fever, hives or throat swelling, just terrible pain leaving me hunched over. Taking an over-the-counter product such as Simethicone helps but I've started avoided bananas...
Avatar f tn Hi, I have dairy allergy & have had lactose intolerance for a long time, and it sounds to me like you have a basic dairy allergy. You should be aware that taking a lactase supplement will do nothing for a dairy allergy. The allergy is actually to the protein in cow's milk (well, actually that would be all bovine derived milks, including goat's milk).
Avatar f tn It started with chronic hives as an autoimmune disease. They pin pointed it as being triggered by a severe allergy to gluten. During the past month I have developed a severe allergy to dairy as well. Though eliminating both helped relieve the sickness during and after I ate for a while, I have started getting sick again and I don't know why.
Avatar f tn I go to see a holistic doctor for my uncontrolled hypothyroidism and i show an allergy to wheat and whey!!! What?!?!? Can this just "pop up" like that? Has anyone heard of that before? I'm freaking out.
Avatar f tn A person with a gluten intolerance (wheat products) can have similar symptoms to yours, the same goes for an allergy to milk. People can develop these allergies as they grow older. Also stress can cause similar problems because the adrenal glands produce too much adrenaline which is a poison and your body can become toxic from it. For every cause there is an effect.
Avatar n tn If you are concerned that you have an allergy as serious as celliac, you should go to an allergist or your primary care doctor to get thorough testing done. You may have a wheat allergy or gluten intolerance, but you can't know for sure without the proper testing.
Avatar f tn This is just a guess. I haven't been on the diet to do a "before/after" comparison. But I notice sometimes after I eat some things, I'll zonk out and feel all of a sudden like I've been hit by a truck and need to nap. It seems to occur more often if I skip breakfast and go right into lunch or delay lunch. During those times where I feel unbelievably tired mid day, I feel out of it and can't really focus or get my thoughts together.
Avatar f tn Allergy testing is not that accurate. Sorry you went thru it. If you have Celiac then you will be having pretty severe cramping and diarrhea within 45 minutes of having a high gluten meal. Test it yourself at home. This is a pretty sure fire indication. It is cruel to make you wait so long for results. I would call and bug the MD office for results, they usually get them mmore quickly than they tell you.
Avatar f tn Every pregnancy I hace had, I couldnt tolerate cows milk. It really upsets my stomach. I niw only drink LACTAID. Its really good and lactose free. Still has vitamin D and calcium too. Worth a try.
Avatar f tn Hello there, Wheat allergies are quite common as is allergy to gluten. There are allergy food tests one can have. These are special blood tests that your doctor but more likely an allergist can administer to you. Where I live you have to have your doctor refer you to an allergist. I was referred to an allergist many years ago by my doctor. I was given a skin allergy test by the allergist.
Avatar f tn My health visitor at weight clinic suggested it could be a food intolerance and all I could think of was citrus and wheat products, advised to keep a food diary and see the doc. She was ok for a while so didn't act on this straight away. But bearing in mind my daughter has had silent reflux from newborn to a year and then didn't drink milk at all only a small amount now and again in food I deaf think its milk.
Avatar m tn Yes, it can and does happen. An example is the 'sudden' development of gluten intolerance - either a sensitivity (allergy) or out-right celiac disease - in adults. No one knows exactly why it happens, but autoimmunity can suddenly 'turn on' and make a person quite uncomfortable. Some of the bigger food problems seem to occur to gluten (wheat, rye and barley), dairy (the protein portion - casein - not the milk sugar - lactose), eggs and soy.
Avatar m tn Hello, True chocolate or cocoa allergy is rare. More commonly, reactions to chocolate are the result of a food intolerance or allergy to an ingredient in chocolate. People may be allergic to one or more food additives used in some chocolate products.When such an allergy occurs,it may cause hives,swelling,itching,sneezing and life threatening anaphylaxis.Chocolate contains milk,wheat/gluten,corn and corn syrup,nuts and various additives.
Avatar f tn I had (I took care of it) a gluten intolerance to wheat, but I did not have Celiac disease. My allergist/immunologist who has a Ph.D. and a son with Celiac, told me that yes.. you can have an intolerance to gluten, but not actually have Celiac disease.
Avatar f tn So makes me wonder if I would be gluten intolerant if I have an actual allergy? I eat wheat, but I have over the years considerably cut back... I used to eat bread like an addiction, but after getting enough "wonder" bread, lost its appeal... I guess I tasted more of the processing and chemical additives which turned me off.... Milk no allergy, but I've never been fond of drinking it.... Goat milk though I have an allergy to... I don't drink stuff that comes from animals..
Avatar f tn Get tested for gluten intolerance or celiac disease. It may be an allergy to gluten which is in anything that has wheat. I am gluten intolerant and so are my daughter and son. My daughter had the same problem as you and could not stop going to the bathroom after she ate (either wheat or dairy). Within 24 hours of not eating gluten or dairy she was a different person. Be careful with the wheat as it is 'hidden' in all kinds of processed foods. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Is it allergy or intolerance? If an allergy it can be treated.
Avatar f tn If I understand your question correctly, you are asking if food intolerance and/or allergies mimic the pain of various neuropathies. Food intolerance, only if it contains gluten. The association that I am aware is that of neuropathy secondary to gluten sensitivity. The following is excerpted from a report in the medical literature and is illustrative of this phenomenon. Sensory ganglionopathy due to gluten sensitivity (CME) Hadjivassiliou, M. MD; Rao, D.G. MD; Wharton, S.B.
Avatar m tn It would appear to be wheat, and probably GMO wheat. The IBS disappeared with my discontinuing all wheat products, and the fatigue has not hit its frequent lows. I am going to have a blood test for food intolerances. Interestingly enough, these ailments only became apparent after my return to the States after more than two decades working in mostly third-world countries. Those countries, by the way, did not have the allergy and intolerance problems that we have.
