Is Celiac Disease Related To Allergies
Not really: Celiac disease is caused by antibodies, mainly of a class that is called iga, that destroy the lining of the small intestine (gut). Those antibodies are to several proteins in wheat and other cereals. Allergies are caused by antibodies of IgE class and they act in a different way. Celiac disease may be associated with a rash with blisters, called dermatitis herpetiformis (looks like herpes). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Symptom wise: It is difficult. Both can cause diarrhea. In general a good history, lab tests and sometimes biopsies will tell you the diagnosis. If everything comes back normal, then you may try what is called an elimination diet and record which foods bother you more than others and you will be surprised how often people get better if they ear correctly. Best wishes. ...Read more

What are common symptoms of allergy or intolerance to wheat (not celiac disease)? How is allergy/intol determined - thru testing or elimination diet?
Intolerance/immune: Intolerance consists of any undesired effects from from wheat and there is no definite test for it (other than a double-blind food challenge). Allergy to wheat often affects the guts but may cause hives, swelling, nasal congestion, and even rarely anaphylaxis. Allergy can be detected by skin testing or allergy blood test but double-blind food challenge remains the gold standard. ...Read more
Allergies are immune: Hyper- ige response to allergens is what causes an allergy. Many people do not have this. It is autoimmune inderectly, in that the inflammation from histamine and leukotrienes released by the bodies celles cause sinusitis, conjunctivitis, or asthma. I also beieve that even mild food allergies can worsen arthritis of the spondyloarthritis class, but this has not been systematically confirmed. ...Read more

Can untreated Celiac disease cause Immune Reconstruction Syndrome? I have bad allergic symptoms without Montelukast. Untreated Celiac disease too.
Not known: The association of Celiac and immune reconstitution is not one I have heard of or could find doing a quick search. Montelukast is used in allergies so I think having the expected response from a medication does not suggest an immune problem. It is worth getting your Celiac under control for other reasons, i.e. to prevent the known Celiac complications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
