I have had an outbreak and was wondering if anyone has reacted to Mrs. Dash Table Blend? I cannot pinpoint one thing I've eaten today that could have gluten in it.

 

Breakfast: Morning Smoothie all fruits and vegtables

Lunch:       Butterfinger (I know, terrible but busy day)

Dinner:       Hamburger Patty with Mrs. Dash Table Blend (first time using it), Salad (romaine lettuce, spinach blend, real bacon bits, Ken's Country French Dressing) and Corn Chips

 

About an hour ago I woke up with an outbreak behind each knee, my lower stomach and left hand. Just looking for any insight as I am puzzled.

 

Thanks,

 

Jyn

The best way to know is to read the label. Unless the label says it has gluten, it doesn't. As far as the list of ingredients for that product on the website, it lists no gluten ingredients. (As none of the shakers do, unless I am mistaken because it is late.) But, as the faqs state, the label is always going to be more accurate than the website.

You may need to try suspect items one by one to figure out which one caused the outbreak.  I hope the itching stops soon.  I am very sensitive and stick mainly to produce and pasture raised dairy products.

Jyn, you need to remember that dh can present at any time for 2 yrs. or more even after going strict gluten-free. This is why dh is so vexing. How does one determine if it was food or simply a spontaneous outbreak? This is why my hubs & I will not eat anything that is produced on shared line, will not eat out, will only eat cert. gluten-free foods. This is how we keep from going crazy trying to figure out where the cc came from OR if it was spontaneous. The mental effects of this can be horrendous.

 

So, in short, in may or may not have been something you ate. And IF it was something you ate; it may have been the day before. It will screw your brain up & that's for sure!

Summer 2013 We both have added back a little soy which is near unavoidable & we are doing okay with that small amount.

I'd keep a food and activity diary. I've found viruses break me out, as well as starting increased t3 mess for me thyroid (along with a strenuous massage). In short - I changed things in my body and the rash was a protest.

It isn't always food.

Seems like Mrs Dash used to say gluten-free on it?  Maybe they have changed as they wait to see what the law that may or may not get passed says.

Thank you all for your responses. I did check the Mrs. Dash website before I bought it and it does say it is gluten free, however, I know that even with gluten free some still react so was just wondering if others had a similar occurrence.

 

Overall I am still feeling much better and even with the new outbreaks my skin is doing so much better.

 

I went to a birthday party on Sunday but brought all my own food with me but often when I am around a lot of people within a few days I become sick so the virus thing might play a role. I'll just keep being vigilant about what I eat and continue with my food diary to see if I see a trend.

 

THANKS!!!

BTW I love your screen name, lol. Thanks so much for your reply. I was so puzzled last night with so many things being a trigger it is indeed vexing. I haven't dared to eat out anywhere and I know it will be a long time if ever that I do. Right now I only trust myself to make my food.

Maybe you could give her some info about iodine and DH. Maybe she needs to watch that for a while?

I'm sure she was on another thread where we talked about it but it never hurts to repeat & remind. Thanks Karen.

 

Iodine can make the dh flare horribly for most of us so you can try going low iodine & see what happens. The low iodine diet can be found @ http://www.thyca.org/rai.htm#diet

Of course you will have leave out the gluten foods as thyroid cancer patients aren't necessarily celiac.

 

Jyn, my screen name took zero thought. When I was registering for the site & I needed to come up with a screen name, I sat there squirming & itching --- thus squirmingitch. However; it's a name I will be elated to loose one day! Perhaps then I will change it (like Prince did) to "The member formerly known as squirmingitch". :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I don't have DH and reading the DH threads makes me itch!  I don't know who you have helped on here.  I'll have to see if we can extend the number of letters in our screen names to fit "The member formerly known as squirmingitch:D

Yes, you did warn me about iodine. I don't think I have a reaction to it but I did cut way back on yogurt and stopped using table salt (therefore the Mrs. Dash.) I do not eat a lot of dairy besides yogurt and an occasional bowl of ice cream. I was eating at least a cup of yogurt a day often more so I cut back just to see if I notice a difference.

 

On a new subject. When I went shopping yesterday I very nearly had a meltdown after about the 10th thing I picked up had gluten ingredients or a wheat warning. (Chicken Bouillon, really) I know I am still very new to this but I thought I was past this stage already, Guess not. My bf must have noticed even though I was trying to hide it from him so he made a special trip on his lunch break to bring me The Raw Flying Cupcake goodies (they are vegan and gluten free). The brownie was amazing and I'm saving the cupcake for tomorrow.

It's been a while now since I had one of those meltdowns Jyn but I do remember them all too well. I remember having them hit me out of the blue after not having had one for a month & then wham! you're in the store & you just want to slide down to a sitting position & bawl out loud. ((((((JYN))))))))

Your bf sounds like a great guy so keep him around for a while. :D

 

BTW, Herb Ox bouillon is gluten free & says so right on the label. Both the chicken & the beef so now you can have bouillon hon.

I wish we could go to the store with you.  Would be helpful to have someone steer you in the correct direction the first few times you go to the store.  Show you what almost never has gluten,  what almost always has it. You will get it soon.  But you can never just pick something up without glancing to make sure the ingredients are the same.
