Will Cooking My Own gluten-free Food In My Friend's Kitchen Make Me Sick?
0

5 posts in this topic

My friend invited me over for breakfast, but completely forgot about my diet and was making French Toast. No matter, I brought gluten-free pancake mix and breakfast sausages. Is making my own gluten free food in a french toast environment enough to make me sick? We did share a spatula that was supposedly washed, but maybe it was just rinsed. I wasn't paying attention at the moment.

 

Alternatively, is my gluten-free food making me sick? Seems like I do better not eating things labeled "gluten free".

 

Background: Lactose intolerant at 19. Thought I had leaky gut in my 20's. MD told me I had IBS in my 30's. Had a mysterious problem swallowing this past summer, and pain in my ear. New MD said, I had an ear infection, and my throat was fine. I was also having reflux. Ten days and minus six pounds later. My MD didn't have an answer. I suggested Celiac. My IGA panel was normal, so no scope was warranted. I was on a low gluten diet at the time, mostly because bread and past was making me gag. I have Vit D deficiency (new that) and border line low Iron (MCV). MD suggested a gluten-free diet. I avoided all grains at first, just because I was too sick to cook. I felt great, Eczema went away, Keritosis Pilars got smooth, no digestive symptoms. I ate raw broccoli, carrots and cauliflower for days and didn't have any noticeable gas.  Imagine that! Early on, I ate a handful of goldfish crackers at work by mistake. It seemed like a score, such a giant bag. I grabbed a cup to snack on them later at my desk. Two hours after consumption, I thought I was going to explode. After the following three days of bloat, I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach.

 

Not sure where to go from here. The diet is a challenge to learn. 

 

Advice? Thoughts? Comments?

Did you say something about eating Goldfish crackers?  Were they the gluten-free ones?   You don't say when that happened or how long you have been actually gluten-free.  I think that if you are still accidentally eating gluten, it is too soon to worry about super sensitivity.  Why not give the regular gluten-free diet a proper try first?  Or, if you wish, do just produce and unprocessed meat first for quick healing and then try adding some of those gluten-free processed items.  You need to give the diet time.  If you are gluten intolerant, you need time to heal.  You also need time to learn the diet and stop making mistakes.  I hope you feel better.

What is the regular gluten-free diet?  Is that the one that the nutritionist gives you?

This is a bit old, but I believe she just meant that this person needs to be gluten-free & not accidentally eating gluten for a while before they worry that they are "super sensitive".

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
