What Do You Take For Being Glutened?
0

5 posts in this topic

  It has occurred to me recently that yes, we all try to avoid getting glutened, but what happens when you do? Can we do anything to make the symptoms more manageable? I get severe migraines mixed with severe nausea and sometimes fever. What does everyone take to feel better?

   I read activated charcoal helps absorb toxins. I know my dog was treated with it when she opened our kitchen cabinets and ate chocolate. It is also used in water filters, so it is quite good at absorbing stuff. So I started taking it when I get glutened and it works so well--of course not immedietly, but well. I also take advil. I try to drink detox tea as well and get rest. Extra sleep seems to help. Does anyone have any other remedies?

Honestly, I get stomach cramps etc but I just have to tough it out and be more careful. Over the counter digestion aids all have soy and corn and other allergens. and more natural enzymes from the health food store can be 20-30 bucks a bottle. So I drink a lot of water and rest, avoid stress and go to bed early if necessary. Yoga also helps. Some poses increase the blood flow to your abdomen, aiding digestion.

I just ordered these after reading the reviews. They will not enable you to eat gluten foods according to the people who have used it, they are more for people that accidently get a little gluten, like from cross contamination.

I've just been glutened! It's my fault for trusting a resturant that obviously didnt know anything about it! It was a Mexican resturant so there was a language barrior too, I stuck with corn chips, guacamole and potato rolled in corn tortilla that I asked to be warmed in the oven and not deep fried to avoid CC. Didnt work my stomach is cramping really bad my stomach is bloating my head is swimmy, this is my first glutening since I went gluten-free. I was supposed to go on a date tonight for the first time in forever! I was finally feeling better and now I've ruined it! Is there anyway to speed this up naturally?

    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid.
