Throwing Up
0

10 posts in this topic

I ate some pizza with wheat today. Dumb, I know. Believe me, I've learned my lesson.

I thought I would be okay, because it was just part of a piece, but a few hours later I threw up. I had been eating wheat for 16 years before I was diagonosed and never threw it up. I'm 17, and was diagonsosed a couple months ago. Why would I suddenly throw up wheat if I'd been eating it for 16 years with nothing happening? I have been avoiding wheat, besides that pizza.

Perhaps it was somewhat psychological? Once you knew you ate something you should not have, you realized you made a big mistake. And that mentality aided in the regurgitation of food?

It also could have been the combination of dairy and wheat. I found that the older I got the more lactose intolerant I became. I found it harder to keep down all in general, especially milk.

Sarahann, I was eating gluten for 48 years before I went gluten free. Never once could I attribute throwing up with gluten. But now since being gluten-free, I have had the unpleasant feeling of wanting to throw up and throwing up. So it can happen.

I loved to eat bread and pasta and never, ever had a reaction from it. Now a crouton can produce a reaction, usually as diarrhea but I have had nausea too. It is strange but in a way it is also satisfying having the confirmation that my body needs to avoid this stuff.

I'm the same way. It's interesting how are bodies "almost" get used to the gluten.

Hi, my daughter is also 17 and just recently diagnosed. Everything hit her about a year ago this month and it took them a while to figure it out. One of her main symptoms was the vomitting due to the casein in dairy products. Everytime she ate or drank dairy products she would throw up not from the wheat. When I suspected her to have celiac I took her off gluten and she was still vomitting. Then I read on this site to eliminate dairy and when we did no more vomitting. I hope you figure it out. In the meantime you might want to eliminate dairy and see what happens.

Yes, but look what they do to us in the process of dealing with this gluten :o

I have been gluten free for 3 months now, after realizing I have been celiac for over a decade.. I am now the textbook definition of a super sensitive celiac. I had no stomach symptoms when I was eating gluten, however, I had several other symptoms. Itching and inability to drink whiskey were the 2 things that led me to my answer, as apparently dr.s dont ever seem to get it. Now I have a more sensitive stomach than ever. I believe it is healing..and actually digesting food. Anytime I have even the slightest cross contamination, I vomit now. Boooooo.Usually just once with food. If I drink out of a glass that previously had whisky in it or something I didnt realize had grain alcohol in it, was fermented with wheat, etc..I throw up for 4=6 hours like food poisoning. Clockwork. This is what led me to becoming gluten free and figuring out what the hell was Wrong with me. I am going to be 30 next month. Hopefully I wont sleep through my party! If you are in portland oregon, holler and lets have gluten-free meals! Grass fed animals, as that is all I can eat anymore :) I could use some new styles of food!

    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.
