Vitamin Overdose?

2 posts in this topic

Wow, what a crappy week! No pun intended!! :(

Anyway, for the last three months give or take, I've been off my Vitamin supplements. At the beginning I just kept forgetting a few days a week, then I set an appt. for blood work to see what the past year of gluten-free living is doing for me. So I figured I should go off all supplements completely to give an accurate picture of what my body is actually getting from the food.

Yesterday I had my blood work done, and immediately took my Folic Acid, Iron, Calcium Citrate, 2000 mg of Vit. C (could be the culprit, I cut that in half this morning) and Glucosamine. Today my guts are wrecked, including abdominal pain/cramps and nausea that I don't usually get when I get "glutinated".

Other possible culprits could be, Yesterday AM's two McDonalds Hashbrowns (previously I've not had a problem with them, however these ones were not fresh and could have been contaminated while sitting in the warmer) OJ from McDonalds, or the new brand of Vodka cooler, orange flavoured. I didn't see anything in the ingredients, however I remember Mom cautioning me about Orange Pop when I first went gluten-free. I've had this cooler before, and haven't connected it to any reaction, however I did have one on Monday as well from the same box and was sick Tuesday.... possibly this batch??

Got to be a darn detective with this disease!!! :angry:

Anyway, does anyone else have any input on the Vitamin angle?? The sudden supplementation after a complete absence? These are all the same bottles I was on before, so no new brands, batches or the like.

Thanks in advance...

Calcium, if taken on an empty stomach, can make you nauseous as well. (BTW, make sure you're getting enough complimentary vits to make the calcium be of any good. Most diets (even very healthy ones, I've tried doing the calculations before) are short in magnesium, which is required for calcium to be effective for bone mass. (There are other required nutrients as well... zinc, for instance... but magnesium is one of the biggest problems since you need it in a relatively high ratio to calcium.)

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
