so I'm visiting my parents this weekend, and they've gotten so much better with understanding the gluten-free diet, but my Dad still doesn't fully get it.  He made the comment that a few breadcrumbs won't hurt   :wacko:

 

so I know with the new labeling law gluten-free products have to be under 20ppm, but my question is how much gluten is actually in a single, small bread crumb from a loaf of gluten containing bread?  I've searched some on the internet, but if anyone has a credible source/link they can supply me with for the next time he makes that comment, I'd like to be ready  :)

 

my aunt who works in a local organic/health food grocery store and prepares gluten free items for the store even explained about cross contamination to my Dad, but it's like it went in one ear and out the other  :o

 

begin rant:  I watched my mom set a hot dog bun directly onto their kitchen counter, and it is their house, so I didn't want to make a big deal of it.  However when they offer to make something, I can't trust them to make it without CCing it based on my Dad's comments and my Mom's handling of food.  Here's the cream of the crop...last weekend my mom told me she ate some wheat bran pancakes for breakfast on an empty stomach, and then she used the restroom nine times that day with D and had painful stomach cramps.  With 9 times in one day there's no way she can blame it solely on fiber content, so she decides to tell me afterwards, "I think I may have a tiny bit of a gluten intolerance."  She stressed the word tiny.  Really I wanted to reach through the phone to shake her and say you either have or you don't, and considering you have a daughter that can't eat it maybe you should quit eating gluten too.  She seems to alternate between C and D a lot more lately, but what do I know, I'm just the younger daughter who's trying to figure this stuff out.  She frequently tells me her stomach is 'rockin and rollin' and she thinks it's funny, but I really want to tell her it's not normal for that to happen so often.  I do a little silent scream in my head every time she says that.  She's a busy person, and often complains of being tired, and her memory is not good.  She'll tell me the same story four times, and then gets mad at me when I tell her you've already told me that.  She is a breast cancer survivor, and she's always been so strong, so it frustrates me that giving up something I think would very much improve her quality of life, she is very resistant.  Change can be scary, but I truly believe this change for her would be for the better...end rant.

Here is a summary of a study that was conducted. They looked for damage in the small intestines. So...in a way, your parents might be right that the tiny crumb won't hurt you. But, can they guarantee that that is the only tiny crumb you get all day? Of course not. So we need to eliminate tiny crumbs we know about, to help protect ourselves from the ones we don't know about.

"Dr. Fasano and his colleagues say that many or most people with celiac disease can handle up to 10 milligrams of gluten — the equivalent of 1/8th of a teaspoon of flour, or 1/350th of that slice of bread — in their diets each day without experiencing adverse effects. The study frequently is cited as evidence that celiacs can handle "gluten-free"-labeled foods with up to 20 parts per million of gluten in them."

I know what you mean, I have similar problems with my mum. One minute I thinks she 'gets it' the next thing, she says something which makes me think, she hasn't grasped it at all. We had a day out recently, and couldn't quite believe how little choice there was for me at the place we were at. I managed to get a bottle of plain water, while everyone else had ice cream cones. ((I'm dairy intolerant as well).
There's a lot of people that don't realise that even ' few crumbs' can and do hurt. Why else would we need a separate toaster etc.?

It also sounds like you mum does have the same problem. What non-Coeliacs don't realise that even if they show no outward symptoms the damage is still been done on the inside.

At least you can rant on here and we all sympathise and understand how you feel.

One speck of rat poison may not kill the rat, but it sure as heck will make him wish he was dead.

 

I found myself having some nasty symptoms last week and scratching my head trying to figure out what the heck was going on.

 

Took me a few days, but I realized the little place I *thought* was capable of serving me a truly gluten-free lunch wasn't really adhering to the guidelines to avoid CC. They told me they had dedicated space. They had UDIs bread. They understood celiac.

I ate there a few times over the course of a month.

 

But I learned my gluten-free bread was toasted in a shared toaster (I assumed --never, ever do that) I

I thought their "2-toaster kitchen"  meant one was dedicated. I assumed they made my burger in a skillet, not on the shared grill. I assumed too much based on their answers. I should have asked more. I feel like an idiot. I mean, I'm a 3-year veteran for pete's sake.  :D 

 

I paid for it dearly, starting with hair shedding all over the bathroom floor, migraine, serious back and muscle pain, sores on my face and then, the good old GI symptoms... I was dragging myself around and wondering why. This was my duh! 1 +1 = 2, dopey head moment.

 

A miniscule amount, a slow, low-dose glutening---is just as bad as a big blast of it. 

 

One crumb is toxic.

You are so right Irish Heart,

It makes me feel like I'm fussing or being pedantic for asking too many questions, and I have in the past, done the same as you and 'assumed' too much. These are our lives though and we must do everything in our power to make sure we don't get glutened - if we don't do it, who else is there? We are the ones that will suffer :-(

I would have agreed with you a few years ago, except ...my (then) 84-year-old Yankee Steadfast feet- in -cement -unbending

Mom read all the materials I sent her after my DX. She had watched me almost die after 3 years of crashing so bad

and she recognizing her own life-long symptoms (as well as the

reason my dad surely died).

She went G F immediately.  I helped her figure out what to eat and she never looked back. Never bothered with testing. 

Her doc gave his blessing and she feels fantastic. (probably for the first time in her life) and I have had to remind her to get her BP & thyroid med dosage reduced as needed.  Her lab work is awesome

and the doc says her EKG is one of a 60 year old. My Ma had suffered heart palps and "a-fib" for years--just like me (neither of us have that anymore)

No more GERD or cholesterol meds.....blah blah blah.

 

My Mom could out-walk any of us any day and at nearly 87, still goes to the gym 3X a week with her girlfriends (in their 60's) I know, she is amazing. She's in better shape than I am.

 

If somebody really wants to change, they can.. ;)

thanks kareng and IH for the links!.  Now I'll be ready for the next time he makes that comment  ;)

 

flowerqueen, i'm sorry to hear that your Mom acts similar to mine, but maybe someday they'll get it.  it always makes me feel better knowing someone is in the same boat  :)

 

I keep going back and forth about paying for the gene test out of pocket from Enterolab.  my GI wouldn't order it after my positive DGP score because he says in itself it is not diagnostic, which I know.  However at this point I'm so curious.  I know Dr. Fasano does the 4/5 rule, but it talks about iga antibodies and I only had the igg based one positive.  However if I counted the igg one anyway, I currently have 3/5 of the criteria except the gold standard positive biopsy.  The gene test would give me that 4/5, but if it comes back negative, that will make my head spin  :wacko:  Unfortunately I'll never know if I don't get it done.  I've said before on here that there is so much research regarding the validity of the DGP IGG test when in regards to IGA deficiency or children, but yet I'm not iga deficient or a child, but I've had three positive DGP igg tests.  I wish they would do more studies on it!  I know I can't eat gluten, but it would be great if I didn't feel like I was swimming in a murky swamp, so I could tell my parents, I'm a doctor diagnosed celiac.  I'm positive then my Dad wouldn't suggest that crumbs won't hurt!  My maternal grandmother had a bowel impaction a few years back, and my paternal grandfather had diabetes, and it often makes me wonder about the role of gluten for both of them. 

 

IH, I always keep that in mind about your mother.  Change is possible!  I'm still hopeful my Mom will have that lightbulb moment in the near future.  She'll be 60 next year, and I want her around when she's in her 80s too because she's my Mom and I love her!

Want my flat out opinion? FWIW?

 

I would save up for the gene test. It will put your mind at rest and if positive, perhaps be the last thing that will get them on board.

 

It was actually the genetic test (showing the double HLA- DQ2 genes from both of my parents) that convinced my Mother she was

gluten intolerant herself (if not a full-blown celiac).  She knew it when she saw the long list of symptoms that she had were from gluten, but in her eyes, genes don't lie.

I know you are right that I should just save up and whatever happens, happens.  Getting the gene test would finally give me an answer to that part of the puzzle.  Maybe my Mom still has my piggy bank from when I was six  :)

Wonder if I could convince my mum to change?  She's on pills to keep her heartbeat regular.  She's in her 80's - the only thing is she's only partially sighted and it would be more challenging for her and may easily get cross contamination :unsure:  I know thyroid problems run in our family (my thyroid improved after my coeliac diagnosis) and these auto-immune diseases are linked.

Yes, you are not alone! I think a lot of it is her age, and she's started to forget things too.  :(  Let's just keep going! This site is great for support! :)
