Ugh New Here

8 posts in this topic

I just recently got diagnosed with celiacs and started the gluten free diet 5 weeks ago. tonight I thought i was eating Prego traditional pasta sauce and after a couple of bites, my face flared bright red and got hot and now i am all broke out on my face and feel funny :( This is the first time i have messed up, does this mean i start back over to square 1?? How will this hurt me :( My face ugh its soo hot and red. I wish they would start listing on labels the major allergens. Do any of you know if they have any plans to do this soon? I am so frustrated with this whole thing. Any advice or tips or encouragement that i wont have to start back over (i felt terrible the first week of coming off gluten). Have any of you accidentally messed up?

Thanks so much

Hope to get to know you all better

Hello Dianna,

welcome in our gluten free forum. I feel with you, because i just had a gluten accident with Amstel light yesterday evening. I just got out of bed and feel a little better now, but i'm still "gaggy". But due to my feeling bad my husband was really romantic and cared and even made me a glutenfree pizza with an icecream afterwards. Makes you wanna be sick a little more often...lol :rolleyes:

Oh well, do you already have a glutenfree list? They have a lot of different lists here on the forum and they helped me a lot. I don't know where you are from, but if you are from Europe, they just put it into law, that every manufacturer has to put everything on the label, no matter how small the amount of something in that food is. And every manufacturer has to adjust their labels until September 2005 or November 2005. I can't remember exactly anymore. Well, since i lived in germany, i know, they do that in germany for sure. But i also heard, that it's every country in the EU. But i don't know, if that's true.

I live in the states now and i'm quite frustrated. They should do that here, too. I mean, if Kraft can do it, why not everybody else?

Greetings, Stef

Oh, it's me again,

I forgot to answer your other question. Which is a very good question. Do you have to start all over again with your diet? I think, it depends on how far you already came with your diet. I mean, if your off gluten for like a week or so and then your diet mistake happens, then i think its most likely, that you ruin everything. But i can tell you from me that, if you are gluten free for a few month already, that it will damage your body, but you don't have to start new all over again. Yes, i had diarrhea today and my guts still hurt, but i'm not nearly as bad as in July, when i started. That means, you still should be very careful not to make any mistakes. But i think it's with everybody at the beginning, that you make those mistakes, just because you really don't know, where there's hidden gluten in and where isn't. So if it happens, don't get all that worked out about it. Yes, it is terrible and it hurts, but think about it this way. You won't make the same mistake twice, you can only learn from your mistake. So next time, don't eat Prego traditional pasta sauce anymore, when you know, it's hurting you. And nobody's gonna rip your head off, if it happens, don't be too hard on yourself. Just learn from it. It can only get better.

So, if you have any more questions, just post them on here. All the nice people in here try to help out. (i don't know, what i would have done without you guys :D )

And then i only can say, i hope you get better soon.

Stef

Prego should be gluten-free. I think they'll list any gluten but check with them yourself.

;) i have checked and only prego traditional is gluten-free--none of the rest of their line is---much of ragu is, so maybe try it next time and no dianna, you are still gluten free, you just made a mistake and yes, that mistake made you sick and may have set you back a little, but you havent lost all the good work you are striving for--just a little set back ;) ---we celiacs must read, read, read and :( still we miss things--i have been gluten-free now for over 3 years and i glutened myself for 2 weeks unknowingly :angry: --i didnt get physically ill so i didnt realize i was doing it---the strange thing is <_< ---i didnt get diarrhea like i always do when glutened--this was barley and what did happen, my aches in my hips came back--as the barley left my system, so did the aches :) so keep at it--just look at this as another learning experience :lol: deb

Thanks guys for answering my questions. I did get sick last night but this morning i feel a little better. This disease is so hard. I feel better Joint wise and depression wise, but my stomach is still bothering me most of the time. I think its because i am allergic to milk also adn have been eating foods with that in there because if i eliminated that Id have nothing to eat. Thanks so much :) for all your help!!

Going Gluten-free Casein-free takes some doing, but it doesn't have to be that hard. Take a look around the GFCFdiet.com site, and generally google around for some tips. It's not an uncommon diet, and there are a couple yahoo groups that you may find helpful as well. (I've been gluten-free for ~15 months, and Gluten-free Casein-free for ~4 months.)

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
