Sweet Tea?
0

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if sweet Tea out would have gluten? Has anyone checked on different brands. I never thought about it before, but all the sudden realized I feel sick everytime I drink it. THis may not be what is making me sick and probably isn't, but thought I would ask anyway. I am eating a baked potatoe out when I eat at this place and everything else is safe, unless it is a cross contamination issue.

I am just trying to figure out if it is something in coffee and tea that makes me feel gluttened.

Thanks,

Monica

I have had this problem with sweet tea too. It seems to be the mixes only with me and the only thing I have narrowed it down to is caramel color. I was like you at first, I couldn't understand it, but sure enough, time and time again it was the tea. It is almost immediate with me--mouth burns and sore throat, then later in the day, the big D, brain fog, two days of my life fuzzy--ugh, I just gave up drinking any tea except for bags.

Luzianne (decaf is what I use), Lipton (lists gluten ingredients), and Crystal Light are all gluten-free. I don't think I could give up my tea. I did it one year for Lent <_< , never again!!!! :)

The tea I am drinking would be from a restaurant and they make it in huge batches. It is the best sweet tea around. I don't really understand why it is bothering me. Just makes my stomach feel aweful later in the day. It didn't used to do that and I am not even sure if it is the tea. Someone mentioned before carmel color and maybe that is it. I am also wondering if it has to do with something entirely different and it just depends on the day I drink it.

Thanks guys,

Monica

Unless it's CC it should be gluten-free. Caramel color in the U.S. (and probably elsehwere) is safe.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
