Maybe Its Just The Yeast...

4 posts in this topic

I have been cheating on the diet lately, I know it is bad.

Background, I was diagnosed in Nov 2004 and weeks later became preg. Every thing is going well so far. Although I have cheated once or twice.

Here is my question, I will get sick if I come near a bread crumb. i took a pickle off my husbands sandwhich which was between lettuce and cheese and got sick almost immediately. (servers who touch pickles also touch bread...whoda thunk?)

Yet i have a small slice of cake and I have fine. (I think it is the pregnacy and cravings that make me not be able to have control) I have gone over the times I have cheated and there are not all that many. The only times I get sick to my stomach are the times it involves bread or bread like things. Coulld I have an allergy to the yeast in bread and not gluten.

I have had the blood test, which stated that I was sensitive to gluten or intolorant one but never been tested as a full blown celiac due to the diet seems to work and there is no meds out there.

Any advice??

You have never been tested for celiac? Were you gluten free when you were tested for intolerance. Whether you get symptoms or not you will get damage to your system if you are a celiac. Some people react to some things but not other things. Other don't react at all and then others react to every little bit. I think if you tested gluten intolerant then it is not just any yeast in the bread...I find that very unlikely...you need to be comitted to the diet though. When you ignore it you put yourself 40-100 times more likely to get cancer and other serious complications so I would really watch it. There are still many things we can eat that are delicious but I think the gluten free diet is what you need to be following. You need to check things such as lipsticks etc. and make sure you get a new toaster if you have not already because of the bread crumbs.....let me know if you any questions. :D

To other moderators...I pinned this here...I thought it belonged here if it doesn't just move it :lol:

Yes, the symptoms can vary from time to time, but your post has me concerned. Untreated celiac (and cheating counts as untreated, I'm afraid) is a risk factor for infertility and problem pregnancies. Now, if ANY is not the time to cheat, unfortunately.

What tests did you have done and what were the results? False positives are almost unheard of.

Your risk for miscarriage is now way up because of the cheating, unfortunatley. Please don't cheat if you have celiac disease or if you're gluten intolerant, and if you haven't gotten a firm diagnosis, see your dr. and try for one. That way you won't have to continue to question it in the future. Good luck to you and feel better.

    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
