Safe And Comforting Foods?

10 posts in this topic

I'm wondering what foods would be safe and soothing to eat after I have taken in too much gluten and suffered the effects(diarrhea, cramping, nausea, etc.) ?

Thanks!

Avoid gluten to start with - entirely! Sounds like maybe you haven't started a gluten-free diet.

Then think of the BRAT diet

Banana

Rice

Applesauce

Toast - make it with gluten-free bread

Good luck and hope you're feeling better.

Yes avoid gluten and when you eat take enzymes.Also probiotics are good to boost your immune system and help fight off things and also help with digestion. Try having tummy mint and chamomile teas by celestial seasons. Also altoids and peppermint things help with nausea. As long as you are not on a gluten-free diet if your a celiac your intestines will get chewed up and it will slowly kill you. There are increased chances of cancers and other things.

Kraft brands will not hide anything so unless it says wheat, rye, barley, or oats they are safe. Progresso has some soups that are gluten-free as well. They will also not hide anything. Soup with gluten-free crackers are good for the stomach too. Thai kitchen also has a good spring onion soup that is gluten-free. Mashed potatoes are a comfort food for me and help me when I don't feel so hot. Ok well hope this helps if you need more help let me know :D

I go with simple foods without too much fiber - something that will give my intestines a bit of a rest (but not too much :) ) - and something that's not likely to nauseate me. Applesauce and rice, vegetable broth with a few veggies (some peas/carrots - no corn), roasted chicken, and peppermint tea.

Thanks for the suggestions! You're right. I haven't begun a gluten-free diet yet. I'm waiting until I can get some bloodwork done in March(my dh doesn't have insurance for us until then. I've unfortunately been putting alot of things on hold because of that. We just can't afford the doctor visits without the insurance.)

Kaiti~ Are there any specific cancers there are increased chances of or is it all or any? My Mom and Grandma are breast cancer survivors, so that obviously puts me at a high risk. Do you have any links to articles about this?

Thanks!

I did a search for you and here are some links:

Gastrointestinal cancer and lymphoma are what I have heard we are more likely to get without following the gluten-free diet. There are many other serious issues that can occur if we do not follow it. Hopefully these articles will help you out a bit. Let me know if you need any more info :D

I got these suggestions for coping when you've been glutened from another forum:

If you have been glutenized, these help:

bananas

papayas (fresh, juice, pills)

aloe vera juice (in Walmart or Target pharmacies, or drug stores)

tonic water

okra is excellent for soothing an irritated GI tract. It contains mucilage which acts as a coating. Amazingly effective. Good for constipation, too, faster than the usual prunes

My "safe" food has always been potatoes. When I am hurting so bad that I can't eat anything, the only thing I can still have is potatoes, either mashed or baked. It takes away the hunger, fills the tummy, and is the only food that doesn't bring on more pain.......

Potatoes work well for me, too. Also, gluten-free chicken broth

Baked potatoes settle well on my stomach when I have been glutened. Jello and yogurt also settle well on my stomach too.

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • 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.
