Gluten allergies are so passé.

Yeast allergies are where it's at now.

Isn't an allergy by definition an immune system disorder, and conversely, couldn't any immune system disorder be described as an allergy even if it doesn't work like stereotypical ones per se?

I am not celiac, but I can't have white flour.  The rapidity with which my body processes the food into sugar spikes my blood sugar, which triggers inflammation (arthritis).  So I will ask what's in foods, and be told "oh, it's gluten free so you should be fine" or "We don't have gluten free food here".  Then I have to explain the issue, because I also need to avoid rice flour for the same reason.

The only bread I eat that is not whole grain is sourdough.  The process of making it consumes a significant percentage of the available sugar.

However, some companies have started selling "sourdough" that is nothing of the sort.  Which means I need to be careful about brands.

Why spoil their fun?

When the cure for the ailment becomes readily available give the people who are really gluten-intolerant the cure and let the imaginary gluten-intolerant invent their own excuse of a cure.

Possible excuses:

a) Watching old WB cartoons cured my gluten intolerance.

b) One day I woke up graving a doughnut and it cured my gluten intolerance.

c) Paying for TotalFark cured my gluten intolerance and made me a raging alcoholic addicted to craft beer and extreme right wing politics.

When my wife got diagnosed, she ended up losing a bunch of weight do to dietary restrictions. One of her co-workers said she was jealous of her rapid loss, my wife replied that she was jealous of not having to subsist off dirt and water.

Why would anyone willingly avoid gluten, it's awesome and delicious, gluten free food is not.. If this treatment passes trials, the Mrs is probably just going to gorge on brownies and Cheez Its for like a week.

My cousin's wife has CeD. It is no joke. Even dishes stirred with wooden spoons that have touched gluten causes her distress, and the thing a lot of people don't know about is that dairy is equally if not more of an issue for many sufferers.

Needless to say, pizza is off the list at family gatherings.

I have it. Got the biopsy and the t-shirt. Living in the bay area, it's not bad at all. All the supermarkets and most of the restaraunts cater to a gluten free diet. I miss a few things, but thanks to the nice weather, I BBQ 4-5 nights a week for nine months out of the years. I can get white GF bread that is damb close to Wonder bread. The boxed GF mac and cheese I get is way better than Kraft. And if I want to eat out, I have lots of choices nearby. The fakers definitely help.

This drug sounds promising, but there's a long way to go. Haven't heard the side effects yet (shudder) and because it will be the only treatment, it will likely be expensive.

Celiac protip: most Hagen Daz ice cream flavors are gluten free and their ingredients list is much shorter than other 'ice creams'. No standing around the frozen food aisle reading labels.

I read elsewhere that this will reduce or remove the symptoms, but not the disease. None of the people on the Celiac groups I belong to want to risk it. I don't, either.

For Celiacs, the long-term damage from gluten include increased cancer risk, no t just an upset stomach.

Had a friend who is gluten-intolerant who came to visit me biatching and whining about the horrible bread she had to eat every morning. Not only was she gluten-intolerant but she had a whole host of other food intolerances that made her life - and that everyone around her - a misery.

She wasn't actually wrong on her digestive problems. Her bowel had literally exploded and she's all colostomied up, but she just can't stop the complaining.

So she comes to visit me saying she can't eat this and can't eat that and the bread she has for toast in the morning is absolute shiate. I had a look at it and yeah, it looked like bread-shaped blocks of shiate.

I listened to two weeks of this complaining before she came and was worried that when I took her out to the art gallery she came down to visit, there'd be nothing there for her to eat. (The gallery is in a winery and has the best food in the city.)

So I take her out to the gallery and we're sitting in this great restaurant and I'm getting stuck into the local label, and she decides to order chicken liver pate off the menu. I order whatever I had (more wine!) and sure enough the food turns up with lashings of locally made sourdough bread.

So she starts hoeing into the bread and the pate and I say, WTF? How can you eat that bread after all the warnings from your doctor and your exploding bowel and all? And she says a little bit won't hurt and I've been saving up for this and she keeps hoeing in.

After lunch, she was hopping all over the place, happy as Larry. Had the time of her life for the next two days. I paid for it all because she was on a pension due to her health problems and all and then she farked off back home and I haven't heard from her since.

The moral of this story is that even if you have no bowel you can still be full of shiate.

Aye, same for my mom. She developed it at 50.

And Happy Immune Funtimes seem to run in the family. (A trade off, I suspect, of there being no history of cancer in the family: If our immune systems are more readily willing to attack our own cells, it probably keeps cancer in check). So I'm drinking beer while I can.

Sorry, Fark doesn't believe in your wife's fake allergy. Therefore, it does not exist. Is she Russian? Then they might believe she exists but only if she's a troll. Sorry. Them's the rules.

Good news, you can probably eat whatever you want, gluten and all..
Bad news, your rash is probably this.
Own pets? Your rash is almost definitely this.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demod​e​x
It gets mistaken for every other type of rash and dermatitis.

Bad news, doctors will call you nuts if you admit you think you have this (even though it's accepted medical fact that most ppl have it, admitting that you know you have it is an automatic trip to the loony bin. So keep quiet.)
Good news, you can cure it yourself without some shiatty doctor.

I should visit an allergist because I believe I may have an actual allergy.

Not to gluten. To olives (or rather what passes for olive oil).

Anything prepared with olive oil causes me to have liquid-jet-propulsion diarrhea within 20-30 minutes of consumption. And then several more times thereafter for the next 48 hours.

Fun mode: most doctors don't believe this is possible and will try to discredit any patient who brings it up. Because "olive oil" is "healthy"!

I got the magical Celiac/no dairy combo.

I cheated on the dairy part until recently when I started to have serious joint inflammation symptoms that were eerily rheumatoid arthritis-like. Seriously ibuprofen did not help. My mom has RA with splaying joints and all and that scared the hell out of me. After quitting dairy the joint pain was completely gone in about two weeks.

Kicking dairy was hard and I crave that shiat daily. Every. Single. Day. I would slap a puppy to be able to have a slice of cheese.

Gluten was MUCH easier to give up and I've managed almost 20 years free of it. I always took that seriously because I had vitamin deficiencies from Celiac and it's no joke when your teeth start coming loose in their sockets. If I had a do-over in life it would be to go back and never ever touch the stuff even as a kid.

But enough personal rambling... I really hope this helps others, especially children... I have a neighbor with peanut allergy that has been dosed with this kind of therapy and it seems to work for her. The challenge for the gluten treatment will be to prove out is that there would be NO intestinal damage over 6 months to a year.
 
2018-11-09 04:44:53 AM  
I feel for you, zeroeffect, I love cheese more than almost anything and I can't eat dairy.

I'm lucky enough not to have Celiac. But I was one of those people who for years sneered at the gluten-free aisle. Then after years of increasingly painful and embarrassing intestinal issues, my doctor told me to try a gluten-free diet. I never would have considered it.

Within a couple weeks of getting off bread, I was reminded of that part in The Fisher King when Robin Williams says, "Jack, have you ever had a bowel movement that's like a religious experience?" The improvement was that sharp.

Going full starch free and dairy free fixed my stomach issues and inflammatory arthritis of the spine but i ended up weighing 135 lbs as an adult 5'11" male. I looked sicker than when i ate normally and let the disease do its thing. Plus Keto-Brain SUCKS. I didn't last more than 4 months before i went back to eating normally.

I don't claim to be gluten intolerant; I eat bread all the time, no dietary restrictions.  But there is something about the dough in Pillsbury biscuits that makes me sick for 3 days.  Turns my stomach into a knot and makes me feel nauseated and light-headed.

I have a friend with Celiac's . If she's faking, she should get an Ocsar for acting and another for special effects.
 
2018-11-09 05:37:39 AM  
notice doctor evil lulzboat problem with this bullshiat narrative about gluten and health? gluten is just a label describing form of protein. once dough is subjected to thermal process eg you bake the bread - this protein goes through process of denaturation. It's destroyed. No gluten. In other words you it's an interesting scam similar to ozone hole, y2k, kosher salt, etc..

I got off the junk food, fast food roll-a- coster ride. I have a skin issue that was cured by no longer eating what ever was fast & easy. If I now can't catch it, kill it, grow it or make it myself I won't eat it period.
It wasn't that hard to get it through my thick skull that this way of life was killing me slowly. I've always had a weight problem and 18 years ago my weight was at an all time high of 356 I opted for gastric bypass surgery. I did good on the program but never got to goal weight till last year when my pain specialist asked me about my pain & skin issues. He said I may have an allergy to grain and I should try an elimination diet for a month and see how it goes.
For a month I ate only chicken, rice, brightly-colored fruits and vegetables. My skin issues started to get better and soon stopped completely, I haven't had a breakout in almost 2 years. My A1C is back to 5 it was at 6.2 I was pre diabetic and my bmi is normal as well.
I'm a non Celiac but Celiac just a different type of lesion.

More like I'm allergic to roundup and it's in just about everything non organic and only banded in 23 countries. If we stopped using it it will be out of our eco system in only 50 years.

double blind tests are simple and easy. You can even do it at the holiday dinner.

Meh, try a very low sodium diet for genetic resistant hypertension at age 25.  The diet for Celiacs is a vast and mind bogglingly huge plentiful bounty in comparison.  Foods with too much sodium in them - everything.

Honestly, there's lots of people on restricted diets for medical reasons.  Essential hypertension, stone formers, diabetes, cardiac.  The thing is most of these people don't tell everyone about it constantly.  No offence to anyone here, honestly I mean that, but I think that may be why gluten intolerance and Celiac folks get a bit of ribbing.  You know that comic where the guy walks into a huge empty restroom and chooses the one spot next to the only other guy there to announce he's vegetarian.  It's like that.

Yep, or the crossfit crowd jokes.  I've known people with serious Celiac's, I live with a person with Crohn's .  It's no joke at all - how many people do you know that get bowel resections because they're delusional?  They'd talk about the diet some, yeah - but not like the knucklehead obnoxious crowd.  More just functional stuff.  I.e. "Hey Randomperson, do you want to do to RestaurantX?"  "Umm - I dunno lemme look and see if there's anything I can get there."  Not unreasonable.  About the only time the folks with major medically verified issues like that (in my experience) have been all over talking about it is when they first find out what's up, and are trying to readjust all their eating habits.  Which is pretty normal for having a major condition verified and having to change their life around.  I was kinda similar when my RSD first got diagnosed - if it's new it tends to consume a lot of your attention.  Human nature.

/or when they get together with others with the same problem
//but biatch sessions about "X Annoying Disease" amongst fellow sufferers are also human nature
///because having that shiat's annoying - literally in the case of Crohn's

I used to think feeling awful all the time was normal. I then got a doctor who walked me through an elimination diet.

Lo, and the problem was found to be gluten and soy.

I can have 'diluted' gluten, IE I can eat spaghetti if I eat more meat sauce than  noodles.
