Could you be intolerant to wheat without having celiac ?

Question by lovinbloom: Could you be intolerant to wheat without having celiac ?
My daughter is 1 year now and ive been suspecting that wheat sometimes constipates her, and now lately that she gets a rash and just the other day she got tiny pink spots on her belly and back, im not sure the reason or if i should blame wheat or gluten, and also i think she hasnt been gaining much weight since 10 mos.
I really hope she doesnt have celiac, none of us her parents or ours have that, but please some advice !!! what should i do, thank you

Answer by K
…she’s sometimes constipated, occasionally rashy, and weight gain has slowed since she got more mobile. Okay, you have every formula-fed toddler on the planet.

Why would you think there’s a wheat issue here, given the total absence of symptoms of coeliac disease?

What happens to one’s body when he eats gluten-free products without having celiac?

Question by Lewis: What happens to one’s body when he eats gluten-free products without having celiac?
It was my birthday yesterday, however I have friends who are gluten-intolerant and so we made a gluten-free cake for them. Basically I did not eat anything but this cake yesterday, and today my stool (pardon the upcoming description) is bright green and runny. I’m wondering if this is at all related.

Best answer:

Answer by Shauna
Could be. Gluten free foods are simply free from three grains out of an entire family of foods. So there is nothing inherently damaging about that. It would be like saying you are eating a meal that is free from carrots, peas, and potatoes – three veggies out of the vegetable family. Seriously, that’s not going to do anything to you.

However, many gluten free products, when they are trying to mimic the texture of wheat products, add a lot of ingredients that don’t agree with everyone. The most common are the gums – xanthan gum, arabic gum, guar gum. These are in gluten free products in much higher amounts than you would find in other foods, and they’ve been shown to cause tummy and bowel problems in some people. They’d be the most likely culprit.

Other possibilities would be ingredients you don’t usually eat, like some of the alternative grains like millet or sorghum. Or, again, other products that you don’t usually eat in large amounts, like tapioca starch – that’s another one that can zap people’s tummies.

I’d check the ingredients on the cake and take note, honestly, because some of these products have been showing up in more and more OTHER products that aren’t gluten free. Wouldn’t hurt to have a heads up for yourself that you have an issue with something there, you know?

How do you know if you have celiac disease without being tested?

Question by Julia: How do you know if you have celiac disease without being tested?
I might have it. Or it could just be a gluten allergy. I’m not puking and my skin doesn’t change color. I do get the rash though

Best answer:

Answer by River
Celiac disease is often accompanied by a rash. And, this rash is symmetrical. That is, look for a symmetrical rash on your body.
Not all people with celiac disease get it, and no one has it all the time, but it is still one way to determine if you have it.

Also, with celiac disease, rather than just a gluten sensitivity, you will have weight changes. Some people gain, most people lose. But, there *will* be ongoing weight changes if you have it. You will continue to lose or gain over time regardless of your dietary habits.

Q&A: Gluten-free diet without celiac disease or intolerance?

Question by : Gluten-free diet without celiac disease or intolerance?
Is it safe/ can you maintain a gluten-free diet without having a gluten intolerance or celiac disease? Also how would you make the transition?

Best answer:

Answer by ★☆W.a.b.b.y✿❀
Why would you want to?

A gluten free diet is expensive and the food is less than average. There are people who have to be gluten free and wish that they weren’t.

Gluten free food is low in fiber and often doesn’t have the same vitamins and minerals found in the gluten containing equivalents. Gluten free food is high in sugar and fat.

When people withdraw from gluten they often get very fatigued and have headaches for the first few weeks.

So if you can put up with feeling tired, having headaches, being constipated, putting on weight and being at risk of a vitamin deficiency all while paying more money to eat food that doesn’t taste very nice, then sure, go for it.

I would recommend you speak to your doctor about this before making any changes to your diet.

This is the leading resource for discovering your wheat allergy or gluten intolerance. For millions of people, bread, pasta, and many other foods are bad for their health.

In Healthier Without Wheat you learn the difference between celiac disease, non-celiac gluten intolerance, and wheat allergies. You will discover how hundreds of health problems are connected to wheat and gluten reactions and why sorting this out on your own can be more difficult than you might think. You will also discover how you can be gluten intolerant even if you don t have celiac disease, and why non-celiac gluten intolerance can be just as severe as or more severe than celiac disease.

You will also learn how to determine if your infant or child reacts to wheat or gluten. Healthier Without Wheat also covers nutritional deficiencies commonly seen in gluten intolerance, and equally important, what to do if you are avoiding gluten but not getting better. There are many books on living gluten free, but only one on how to determine whether or not you are gluten intolerant or have a reaction to wheat. You should read this book if you or someone you know suffers from any of the following: abdominal pain, chronic anemia (iron deficiency), arthritis, autoimmune diseases, constipation, depression, diarrhea, eczema, fatigue, fibromyalgia, frequent illness, headaches, heartburn, hypoglycemia, irritable bowel syndrome, irritability, migraines, or osteoporosis.
