Hi W8in4dave.  I've seen some of your posts and I assume your relatively new to gluten free life.  If you haven't done so already, read the label on every food item in your home and avoid these surprises in the future.  Go thru toiletries for gluten products that come in contact with your mouth.  Check all prescription and OTC meds for gluten ingredients. 

 

Hopefully your adjustment goes smoothly from here.

 

All the best.

Takes time and diligence to completely remove gluten from your home.  Another thing you should get used to doing is carrying an assortment of snack food with you when you leave the house.  I keep a pack permanently in my car.  It has nuts, raisins, Lara bars and water.  I never want to be in a situation where I need something to eat and don't have a safe resource.

 

Gluten is sneaky!

Thanks!! Thats a great tip also. I did buy a bag of chips yesterday. I usually never eat that stuff. They were pretty good. Of course full of salt! Because Lundberg Rice Chips With Sea Salt lol... but truly only a couple times a year do I ever eat that kind of stuff.

You can buy bottle to use as cooking oil spray. You just add some olive oil and the nozzle sprays it on just like cooking spray.  I'm not describing it very well, but hopefully you can understand what I mean.  I'm not sure where we got ours - maybe Bed, Bath & Beyond or Williams Sonoma.  It doesn't spray as evenly as the commercial ones and the nozzle gets clogged sometimes, but for the most part it works.  I also use the generic olive oil cooking spray from my grocery store and it's gluten free.

 

I understand about the pain of checking labels.  I was grabbing some frozen broccoli out one night, shortly after being diagnosed, and was about to throw it in the pan.  I thought surely frozen broccoli would be safe.  It was a good thing I decided to check anyway.  There was flour in the broccoli.  Seriously?  Who puts flour in plain frozen broccoli?  And why?  I was just glad I caught it before I ate it.

Hi Waitin,

 

Gluten is used in a large number of products, even non-food items.  It is nice and sticky so it helps hold things together.  So it is used in many products besides food.  Some glues, wall paper paste, play dough, possible drywall spackle, other stuff.  If u'r gonna eat it read it.  Why eat something if you don't know whats in it?  For celiacs that's a recipe for problems.  We need to learn new habits to stay gluten-free.  Like reading every label, every time.  It might help to get one of those mini magnifiers they sell at drugstores.  Don't assume anything is safe just because you ate it before.  A little food paranoia can be your friend.

 

@GFlover,

 

Good to see you back Colleen! :)

The bottles for cooking sprays I got are called Misto. I got a 2 pack at Costco for $20 and would never consider living without them again. They are probably the most used gadget in my kitchen and I love love love them. I don't just use them for spaying pans either since they aren't all full of weird chemicals and stuff like the crap you buy in the store. Since it is just plain oil, I use them for things like a light coating of olive oil on my potato wedges or whatever else I need just a little coat of oil on. I haven't had any problems with them clogging, although I had read online that some people do. I prevent this by making sure it is always pumped fully before every use and cleaning it once a month.

 

I suppose I always took it for granted that baking sprays (not cooking sprays) have flour in them. I remember being super excited when I first found them on a store shelf when I was a teenager. No more greasing a pan by hand and carefully dusting the entire thing with flour making sure there are no missed areas or places with too much. I was sorely disappointed and never bought the crap again.

Pets that lick you...on the face, hands.   Same as having a gluten eater slobbering all over you.  And, yes, you can get glutened from kissing a Glutinator. Not to mention handling all that gluten filled pet food in a gluten free kitchen.  

 

Like GFinDC said.  Every label every time.  

 

W8in..small amounts of gluten, hidden gluten, will keep your immune system attacking your body.  This is a common reason some people continue to feel poorly and not heal.  This is why it is also advised by most celiac's that you replace wooden and plastic kitchen items as they absorb foods over time, as well as replacing scratched Teflon.  

 

* GFinDC. Great to be back and still alive!  Thanks

I don't feed my dog or store his food in the kitchen. He has a lil dish in the back room he eats out of.  He does NOT lick me in the face or hands. It is usually my ankles sometimes when we are outside he will just walk over and lick my ankles I usually stop him right away. Because I don't like dogs to lick. Thanks for all the info. I will keep it all in mind. I usually cook for my dog. He has what ever meat I am having , then he eats a small amount of his dog food. He only eats like a 10lb bag of food a year so he doesn't really eat to much anyway. But Maby I will make it hubbs chore to feed the dog his dog food. 

I feed the cats outside. but they are over by the rabbit kennels , hubbs feeds the rabbits , I will make it his chore to feed the cats.

    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I agree Katie, the gluten challenge isn't worthwhile for some people.  Regardless of your test results, I think you know the answer is not to eat gluten anymore.  I hope you recover quickly from the damage.

      I am glad you are feeling so much better!  Your posting will encourage others.  Thank you!
    • Last posted 2013 - Improving health
      When I first started this journey, roughly 11 yrs ago with symptoms, I had no clue. Eventually, having no luck with doctors (hypochondriac or psychosomatic), I googled my symptoms over and over looking for something... ANYTHING... that would give me a clue. Among other issues, my insides would not move, I was turning gray, felt like death, and had a persistent cough. I can't remember who but someone had posted on the forum and I found some of my symptoms. Eureka, I immediately began a gluten-free diet to see if it made any difference. Of course that was a journey, not realizing what products contained gluten. Long story shorter – first I went gluten-free, symptoms began to reappear, then it was soy (first organic was okay, then not), symptoms reappeared, took out corn, symptoms reappeared, then it was all grains. So the last couple of years I have been grain-free plus no sulphates. Actually, truth be told, my Celiac pharmacist gave me the recipe for health. I asked her if she liked a certain product. She answered, “I don't know, I have never tried it.” I asked her what she did use. She replied, “Nothing out of a box, a bag, or a bottle.” And that has pretty much been my life for the last couple of years. There is the odd product I try but it always has an after effect and I have to way the consequences against the enjoyment of it. I am one of those who react to 1 crumb in the butter, flour dust in the air, sulphates in anything, sometimes things that don't even seem like they would be a problem, like avocados and blueberries when I am contaminated. January 2016 I began this recitation. It is now May 5th, 2016 - Here I am 4 months later and I feel like screaming to anyone who will listen, “Things are improving!! My gut is healing!!” So what happened?? Someone suggested digestive enzymes. My insides were so compromised that I couldn't eat much besides fruit, veggies, and meat; all plain, all without being touched by people other than me. I could barely stand salt at times when I was compromised. Haven't been to a restaurant in years since I am not in a city that would have one to cater or understand this much of a problem. I started digestive enzymes but I read the label wrong and started with 5 first thing in the morning. Whatever... I began to notice improvements in what I could eat. Not anything different but just that I could eat without feeling ill or having my gut shut down. I stayed on those for a month and a half.. then I picked up a parasite from someone living in a very unclean apartment and visiting there and helping to clean. Well, that was a huge battle. I had to eat to discourage parasites. But in the process my insides began to heal dramatically. I was eating blackberries, drinking garlic keefir (which I couldn't have done 5 mths ago and gave me the first clue my insides had improved substantially), drinking oil of oregano or peppermint oil drops in a glasses of water, eating cabbage and green roughage. Drinking water with apple cider vinegar in it and Aloe Vera juice. After a couple of weeks my insides were a whole different story. I had a feeling of wellness that I hadn't had for years! I FELT like trying to eat something different. So I decided to try Gluten-free Rice Chex. Haven't had them in years.... and I am so happy! I can eat them!! (Not to say they are healthy, cause they are processed crap) but I didn't get sick and that was the amazing part. So now I am beginning to try a few things that would have set me back previously, I have made my own crème brulee because I have always been able to eat eggs. But the sugar was causing problems, but now it's okay. The issue I have now is that I want to try things too fast so I am having to exercise restraint. So here is it – parasites are very common, everyone has them however whether they cause problems depends on your immune system. Does it not makes sense that they would cause leaky gut? An over abundance in the gut would destroy gut tissue and take nutrients from a person and possibly put holes in the gut leading to food reactions? Digestive enzymes help to destroy the protective coating around parasites. Foods that discourage them or kill them are blackberries, garlic, cabbage, oil of oregano, peppermint oil, aloe vera juice, Braggs apple cider vinegar and more (google to find). I found medication didn't do anything so I turned to all the other. So this is how it is today. I don't suggest it is the answer to anyone else's problems but when I found this site, hidden in the posts was the beginning of the answers for me.  I may still be gluten, soy, corn intolerant but I am feeling so good now and I just thought I would tell someone.  I just wanted to share. Thanks for reading.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      Not to mention my hips and knees are killing me and I have really bad calf pains and horrible bloating after just 3 days of glutening. I don't think I could live like this for a whole week.
    • Endoscopy in 9 days after being low-gluten for a year. What to eat?
      I saw my gi today and he said to not worry about eating gluten. I have abdominal pain in the small intestine area and referred pain in my back, indicating pretty bad damage. So I'll just go without the gluten and do the genetic testing if needed.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
