What are the symptoms of having a gluten intolerance?

My doctor says that such an intolerance does not exist. I have eczema, digesting problems and my skin breaks out in rashes a lot. How do I find out if I have an intolerance?

You have the symptoms of either or both celiac disease and/or dermititis herpetiformis which are both gluten intolerance conditions. There is also something called non celiac gluten intolerance where the person tests negative for celiac disease but feels better on a gluten free diet. So the first thing to do is see about a new doctor. Keep eating gluten containing foods right now until you get tested. Look at the support groups in www.csaceliacs.org and find one close to you and see if they know of a doctor that works with them. That would be the first step. Then get tested, and after the tests, go on a gluten free diet to see if the symptoms go away. If the tests are positive, then a gluten free diet should see everything clear up.  (+ info)

What are the symptoms of lactose intolerance?

Everytime I hvae a glass of milk I feel like I'm going to have you know what, and whenever I eaqt cheese. But I can icecream fine, and frozen yogurt. Could this be lactose intolerance? I don't know any1 in my family that has it, and I heard it's rare in my ethnic group.

If you can eat ice cream and frozen yogurt, you don't have lactose intolerance. You are obviously reacting to something in the milk, but usually when you are lactose intolerant, you are intolerant to all forms of lactose - including even milk chocolate (but you can eat dark chocolate). Symptoms of lactose intolerance don't usually include vomiting, but do include volumes of gas and very loose bowel movements, bordering on or actually becoming diarrhea. Try switching to soy milk. The ordinary soy milk is a little bland, but they have flavored soy (vanilla is yummy) and chocolate soy. Also soy ice creams, but you say ice cream doesn't bother you, so you don't need to worry about that.  (+ info)

How do you go about treating heat intolerance?

I have really bad heat intolerance. And was wondering what herbs are the best in combating my symptoms? Flushed hands, excessive sweating, and fatigue. I've already had my Cortisol and Thyroid checked and they came back normal. What else should I check? Any info is appreciated. Thx.

Hello, I'm a doctor. I think that you want to get more info about it. Please go to http://healthylife09.blogspot.com/?q=heat%20intolerance  (+ info)

What kind of bread can I eat with an intolerance to yeast?

Except for lactose intolerance, are there any tests to diagnose a food intolerance?

I know a food intolerance will not show up on standard allergy tests. The only way I know to diagnose a food intolerance is by keeping a food diary.

Not that I am aware of. Food intolerances usually don't show up in any allergy test (blood test, skin prick test, patch test..... standard or non standard). Best thing to do is keep a food diary.

Sounds like you know what you are doing! Good luck.  (+ info)

What's the difference between Liquid Glucose and Corn Syrup or any other food syrup?

There are other food syrups too like rice syrup etc. and Wikipedia says glucose can be derived from many sourses so I'm wondering would it matter if I used corn or rice syrup instead of liquid glucose in a recipe?
Thanks all for your answers. I guess I was asking more from a chemistry perspective such as what is the difference in how they're made. Specifically, if Liquid Glucose can be made from corn what is the difference between Liquid Glucose from corn and actual Corn Syrup? I hope that makes sense.

are you talking about liquid glucose for low blood sugar?
if so my dr. told me the liquid glucose or tablets are best for hypos because its the most direct form of glucose to raise your blood sugar safely.

if you're cooking, um, def. don't use diabetic liquid glucose.  (+ info)

How to reduce the glucose in blood fast and keep it low?

Is there a way to reduce very high glucose levels fast with natural products and how to keep it within normal levels?

Having very high blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia) can lead to serious complications and is potentially life-threatening.

There is no natural product that can reduce glucose levels. If no ketones are present in the urine, exercise can get rid of some blood glucose, but insulin is of course the standard.

If you have diabetes, practicing good management and planning is key in preventing hyperglycemia.

There are some herbs and vitamins like ginseng and magnesium out there that may help diabetes management in the big picture, but nothing out there will help acute hyperglycemia.  (+ info)

What is the difference between food allergy and food intolerance?

yeah, whats the difference?, and also is there anything the same about food allergy and food intolerance?

An allergy is a response by your immune system that releases histamine. Histamine causes inflammation and muscle constriction, and a variety of other responses. Food allergies can cause reactions such as itching, hives, tingling and swelling of the mouth and tongue, reactive asthma, and anaphyllaxis.

A food intolerance is any reaction to food that is not a histamine response. For instance, lactose intolerance is the inability to digest milk sugar. It's not an allergy, but it can cause great discomfort, such as gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Gluten intolerance is another food intolerance ( the protein in most grains) that is not an allergic response.

Intolerances can be equally as severe and life-affecting as allergies. For that reason, many people with intolerances skip the complicated explanation and just say, "I'm allergic to [whatever]."  (+ info)

Why would the glucose level rise when you have infection? What is the normal range for glucose?

Why would the glucose level rise when you have infection? and what is the normal range for glucose?

Serum glucose levels rise in the presence of stress and illness, which includes infection, is a form of physical stress.

Normal adult range for a fasting glucose is 70-110mg/dL.
Postprandial range is less than 140mg/dL over 2 hours.
Random glucose should be in the low to mid 100s.

The actual range depends on the lab doing the testing. There will be some variation but it's insignificant.  (+ info)

How high can your glucose level go during the day and still be normal (not diabetic)?

I had a high reading on a blood test, and have been testing my glucose this week. It peaks at around 155 two and a half hours after a meal, and doesn't go under 100 until 4 hours. I am normal weight and exercise regularly.

Every ones glucose rises after eating. The amount it rises and for how long will very from person to person.

Please remember that all these numbers we read about are based on statistical averages which simply means that not everyone is going to fit the mold.

If your consistently peaking at around 155 mg/dl then you need to look at what you ate, and how much you ate. The good news is that your glucose numbers are dropping to normal levels a couple of hours after eating, so a glucose reading of 155 mg/dl may be normal for you on the high side.  (+ info)
