Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with a wheat allergy. It isn't just wheat it's wheat, corn, sesame seeds, hazelnut and peanuts. I'm struggling! Majority of the things wheat free tend to be dairy free also, and do not taste very nice! Just wondering if anyone knows of any books that are any good with wheat free?
Avatar m tn Is it safe to get Doxycycline 100mg on a long term basis? I am allergic to Wheat (i have not done allergy test but i noticed the last two year that after eating bread or pasta i get spots all over my head which turn into a rush-blood test showed that it is not fungus causing this reaction ) and the only thing that helps is this medicine. I would say it is a bit impossible to avoid wheat based food completely.

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.
177465 tn?1288238463 s office and they were pretty confident that his symptoms were unrelated to the testing or from with-holding of wheat products, but I'm unsure of that. He's never, ever had a diaper rash. Period. And for this to be so extreme, I feel that something is not right! Is it possible that the removal of these products (or maybe something in the testing) could be causing this reaction? Thanks!
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 I had to request an endoscopy to confirm it - the GI dr agreed to do it but says she probably just has a wheat/gluten allergy and that an allergist will have to diagnose that. I thought celiac was an allergy to gluten...any input would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn She is currently 25 years old. She developed problem of wheat allergy 2-3 years back. Symptoms were bad digestion, loose motions, mild fever. Diagnosis confirmed wheat allergy. After that she was put on wheat-free diet. Lead normal life thereafter but problem occurs if she eats wheat. Though she eats wheat sometimes but in very less quantity than normal person. She is not allergic to any other grain. Height: 5 ft 1”, Weight: ~50kg Overall, she is living normally.
Avatar n tn I mention gluten, because many with wheat allergy or sensitivity are also allergic or sensitive to other grains that contain this protein called gluten. Gluten is the sticky protein that gives bread dough its elasticity. Many people don't test positive for wheat or gluten allergy in the allergist's office but will still have a bad reaction. This is what is referred to as food sensitivity. The substance must still be avoided to keep from being sick or miserable all the time.
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 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.
2206935 tn?1373638605 Hello there, Some people can be allergic to the gluten in bread products. You can also be allergic to wheat. What kind of bread do you eat ? How much bread do you eat ? 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".
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 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).
268911 tn?1213744781 over a month or two i became intolerant to dairy and gluten, and i started to develop asthma and had all of the symptoms of allergies. i finally went to an allergist who did an allergy test on me, and found that i am allergic to diary, wheat, nuts, eggs, but that i was much more allergic to a lot of the grasses and trees which were around. he told me that all of the trees and grasses had my allergies going and the food just pushed it over the edge.
Avatar m tn she loves finger food and hate nearly all pureed baby foods. i have started her on cerelac (wheat) when she was around 7.5 months. she used to itch her eyes before going to sleep but now i am observing her waking up after she has fallen asleep by the itchiness of the eyes and nose. could that be a sign of allergy? because she is such a fussy eater, cerelac used to do the job and she would just have at least 2 tablespoons per meal. what is your advice?
Avatar m tn Doctor yesterday said that it is an allergy from wheat wich makes the ammune system biuld antibodies and sometimes attack the skin. He said that they have to take sample from the rash area and when he informed me I refused so he prescriped cream and allerg medecin. My question is: If I started a wheat free diet could this make the rash go away or became better or not ?? i.e. is that neccessary to take a medication with the diet ?? Because I'm scred to death from that sample.
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?
6224500 tn?1388947668 I eat gluten/wheat/flour/lactose containing food in the morning and within 5-20 minutes I get bloating, gas and a sudden urge to go the toilet but am constipated (it comes out hard and in small bits). I have had 1 celiac screen which was negative as I had not restarted my gluten diet for very long But I am due another one in a week or so as I am back to eating a normal gluten diet, but are the doctors wasting their time with looking for celiac disease?
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 m tn i went on the atkins diet to see if me getting sick all of the time is from an allergy to like wheat, gluten , or milk....i was on the atkins for 2 days.....that is the worst thing for people....i feel bad for them....anyways...that diet made me feel like i'm starving....i have steroids (prednisone) that i started last night......
Avatar n tn Our son (16 months) is allergic to cow's milk, cheese, wheat and eggs. We are afraid that if we give him soy milk, he may develop an allergy to it. While kids tend to outgrow allergies to dairy, wheat and eggs, we have read that allergies to soy and peanuts are harder to outgrow. We would like to avoid giving him soy until he is over three years old. However, the nutritional benefit of soy may be worth giving it to him now. Should we give him soy milk?
