Pirate's Booty
0

8 posts in this topic

I had my first post-diagnosis reaction to gluten and I am trying to figure out what it was. The only new thing I have eaten was Pirate's Booty Aged White Cheddar. The ingredients looked gluten free and I found a website that said it was gluten free but my reaction says otherwise.

Has anyone else had a problem with this product?

I haven't had any issues with any of their gluten-free products that I have tried. I have been known to eat a whole bag of the cheese ones in one sitting :ph34r:

One thing you have to consider is that for some of us the reaction to gluten is a delayed reaction. Look at what you have eaten for up to 3 days before in addition to what you are that day. A food diary can be helpful for some in pinpointing what caused the problem.

Another possibility is that you may have an issue with dairy.

Thanks - I'm thinking about all I ate 2 and 3 days ago that may be the issue. I was at a BBQ but there were other celiacs there and they are ok. Maybe I ate something contaminated.

I'm getting over my lactose intolerance now that I'm gluten free and I have eaten cheese so not sure that is the issue. Good to have it confirmed that others are not having issues so I'm sure it was something else.

Do you notice if you have a problem with corn?

I can't tolerate yellow corn but am okay wtih white corn. I believe majority of popcorn (that you buy in bags) is yellow.

I stopped buying popcorn already made up and just buy the white kernnels and make my own at home on the stove.

Good Luck with everything

I can't say for sure of course but you could be right about the BBQ, you could easily have been CC'd there. If you really liked the Booty you could wait until you are feeling better and then give it another try and see if the same thing happens.

My little girl is pretty sensitive and she has never been cc'd by Pirates Booty, so I trust the brand.

Hi NC, I also ate Pirates Booty and had a very bad reaction (twice). My theory is that they're using cheese from a preshredded source, & that the cheese is tainted by being dusted with a modified food starch that contains gluten. In my experience, I'm not willing to have another episode so if it doesn't say "certified gluten free" it's off limits for me. Good luck!

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
