Celiac Is More Than What You Eat

7 posts in this topic

I wanted to make this post for all the newbies like me because I could not find all these answers in once place.  Mostly aimed at women.  Gluten intolerance is more than just what you eat, here are my findings:

I developed a sort of greasy, stiffness in the hair on the top of my head.  The fix Suave Clarifying shampoo and conditioner.  If you want to go a little more upscale Loreal EverCreme Sulfate Free works good too.

I developed Rosacea like symptoms on my face.  The fix.  All the Roc products seem ok, I use Olay Regenerist for cleansing, works great too.

Morning nausea.  Toms of Main Flouride Free Thoothpaste.

Itching armpits and swollen glands.  Arm and Hammer Essentials Deodorant, Paraben and Aluminum free.

Body wash, most of the Olay products seem to be fine.

All these products were found by trial and error and a lot of research.  Hope it helps someone else out there.

I also use the suave daily clarifying shampoo, after a few weeks I will get greasy buildup at the roots that my regular shampoo doesn't take out well. Thanks for sharing the products you use with us! :)

hi. i was just thinking i continue to be glutened by ma hair products. for example, today i took off my glasses, and put the temple in my mouth, while i was contemplating something (you know....how people put a pencil or pen in their mouth).

 

i realized when i do that, i'm probably glutting myself.

 

i'm good at not eating anything with gluten...at least on purpose.

 

i'm wondering about cleaning products now...dish soap, laundry soap, body soaps and lotions.

 

it's been about 2-1/2 years since i was diagnosed, and i've never experienced a drastic change in my health.

 

any thoughts?

My first wonder is if you are getting cross contamination. If your home is not 100% gluten free, you may want to create a small kitchen using a table, electric skillet, and utensils.  It is nice to have running water and a tub near by for washing dishes.   I would suggest you consider an SCD (Special Carbohydrate Diet) diet.  This was developed to help those with celiac that are not healing. Basically the diet is grain free.  One can make baked products using nut flour.  You can find the allowed foods by googling SCD diet. 

 

You may want to look at the Newbie thread to see if there is anything you missed.  Since you don't feel you are getting results you may want to be extremely vigilant about all forms of gluten.

 

I hope you will have startling results in the future.

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.

      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both. 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      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.
