Hey everybody, I have been craving something from the pre-celiac days, (diagnosed two months ago) so I decided it wouldn't hurt to have a few glasses of Pepsi this week. I know it doesn't contain gluten but boy does it ever bother my stomoch. i don't remember it being bothersome before going gluten-free. Any ideas...I thought the gut would become less sensive after being gluten-free for a while.

If you haven't been drinking cola for awhile, It will upset your stomach. I think that is true with anybody. I hear it that cola can be used to remove paint... so you can only imagine what it's doing to your stomach.

If I don't drink it for awhile, and then have some..... I'm sick for a few days.

carbonated beverages really bother my stomach too. I don't know if it's all the sugars, or what... but I wasn't able to even tolerate soda's for the first year being gluten-free I think.

Coca-Cola will e-mail you their gluten-free list, which does include regular Coca-Cola, diet, diet and caffeine-free coke, caffeine-free coke, sprite, etc. EVERYTHING SOFTDRINK MADE BY PEPSI CO. IS gluten-free. It could be a problem with the carbonation

Yep Pepsi is gluten free but as was previosly said...the carbonation may have cause a problem.

I used to be a Pepsi drinker but got off the cola's because basically they are empty calories. If I have one now I feel the caffeine rush and the carbonation effects the gastritis in my stomach.

Could you possibly have slight gastritis too?

I only drink diet. Now since I am gluten-free I also get sick when I drink pop, so I just don't drink it.

I usually only experience problems with dark pop. I have has sprite and orange and I haven't had problems. Maybe try a light pop.

Hey Sidore:

I thought I had read somewhere that the coloring in orange soda was not ok? Let me know if that's not right.

Ha - your topic subject made me think of a song - "all I wanted was a Pepsi!"

Anyway, colas have a lot of acid in them (as mentioned before) and carbonation which upsets my stomach, too, now that I haven't been drinking diet Cokes for the past 3 years. I did have my first cola in years last week - Blue Sky Organic Cola - and thought it was great. Doesn't have the added acid, caffeine, high fructose corn syrup. Of course they were expensive and you won't find them if you're at a party or whatever, but if you really want a good cola taste, this has it.

I did have a minor upset stomach after the first one I had (on an empty stomach) but I've had two others with meals and was fine. I think it was the carbonation on an empty stomach.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I never thought of the carbonation being the culprit! I guess I'll only have a glass of Pepsi when I really, really, want it!

Ha-ha Nini! I always laugh when I see your avitar - my best friend has total Cornholio fits from time to time and is the funniest thing to see ever.

I knew *someone* would know that reference... :)

I'm so glad I could make y'all laugh!!!!

I'm just one of those kids that was a misfit punk and now I'm a gr'up (grownup) with a husband and a kid... I try to maintain my "attitude" though, it keeps me young! (considering that I'll be 36 in a few weeks ;)

oh and I couldn't think of anything more fitting for my avitar on a celiac site than poor Cornholio!!!!! I used to fall down laughing everytime I would see that on Beavis and Butthead! "Are you threatening me?????????"

Yeah, it's *PERFECT* for a Celiac site! :)

Still cracks me up. I was at a party last summer and these two guys, one is 60 and the other is 65, were both acting out parts from the film which they'd recently just re-watched. Nothing more precious than a 60 year old saying "Are you threatening me???" and a 65 year old saying "settle down, Beavis!"

Stephanie

PS I'm still a misfit punk of sorts at almost 34... since I don't have kids, it keeps me young, too!

After being low carb and gluten free I just can't stand to eat or drink anything that sweet anymore. Besides too much sugar will turn you into Cornholio so it is best to avoid it.

You all have good senses of humor. :rolleyes:

soda has never upset my stomach, and diet coke has 0 calories and 0 sugars.

Seeing a couple of 60 year olds doing Beavis and Butthead - yeah, Just means you never have to get old...

Ianm - wish I could say the low carb way of life killed the sweet tooth in me. Actually, since going gluten free I have been able to eat more carbs and have rebuilt my love of certain sweets. And tolerance, too, as for a while there I couldn't stand any amount of sweetness (except stevia). Somehow I avoid turning into Cornholio, though, maybe because I don't eat any processed sugars, just natural ones like in fruit, fruit juice, and occasional molassas and maple syrup (OK, those last two are processed to some degree but aren't the white granulated death powder...)

Oh, and to bring up something totally irrelevant, I used to be a big Marillion fan, too. Saw that in your "getting to know you" post...

Uh-huh-huh-huh. Gluten Sucks! Uh-huh-huh.

Yeah! Heh-Heh-Heh. And Marillion Rules! Heh-Heh-Heh.

Actually Marillion is still around. They released a celiac disease last year that is probably one of their best ones :) .

Really? I'll have to check it out. I listened to "Misplaced Childhood" a zillion times. And "The Thieving Magpie"...

Worst story - once I was driving someone around in my car (1992?) and listening to Marillion and this guy said (he was a musician) "Man, these guys would be good if they weren't so overproduced!" Grrrrrrrr!

    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Are there any foods, like broth, that don't make your son feel sick?
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I agree. As an adult its a little easier to withstand the rolling of eyes and exaggerated sighs from people who think you are over reacting and being too fussy.  My youngest has anaphylaxis to fish and seafood and people are incredibly understanding and careful - but it seems celiacs has become a "fad" due to gluten intolerant people removing credibility from true celiacs.  Adults can argue but kids are vulnerable. Socially its really isolating for them.    I totally relate to the waiting on endoscopy. For my very sick 12 year old the 8-9 weeks we waited for sheer hell and I felt I was feeding him rat poison. Now my 17 year old is waiting on his, booked for later this week.  Its a total nightmare waiting knowing you can start the healing if only you could stop feeding them gluten.  But I figure for future reference, having a solid diagnosis via biopsy is important. Good luck to you and your son.
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Hugs to you and your daughter. My son and I are in the same boat, or at least,  paddling alongside your boat.  At their age being scrupulous about their diet is not only incredibly hard but socially isolating. Adults consider celiac people to be a pain so imagine what their young friends think.  Feeling so unwell and having no energy adds to their distress. And the thing is - I don't think at that age that they really understand that even the slightest bit of gluten will set them back badly.  I know my son is convinced one sweet won't matter. It really really sucks.  
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      No one in my wider family gets it, although my sister is certainly trying to understand. She gets that I will bring all food for my coeliac kids when we come for meals and is okay with that.    For other social events, I will suggest the meal is at my place so I can control the gluten.  But my biggest battle is my children's father (my ex husband) who refuses to get it, and thinks I am being stupid and trying to prevent him seeing V.  I have offered that V can visit but not eat nor stay the night.  Ex does not have the means or the brains to manage gluten free meals.    At this point it looks like I may need to go to court to get an order to prevent V from being forced to go and get glutened. I really really hope to avoid this, but its not looking good. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I guess it's the "natural flavoring" which throws me off. It could or could not contain gluten and it's in so many products. I haven't been on a gluten-diet for as long as you...6 years. I may have bee undiagnosed and untreated for more than 25 years since i had signs that went back to chidhood. Yes, I have balance/anxiety/neuro issues. I know anxiety is connected to damage in intestines, but I don't know for sure if celiac causes balance/neuro issues. I was already tested for brain ataxia, but I didn't get too far on that. Well, there wasn't an exact test, but the neurologist noted that I was walking straight or something on those grounds so I must not have it. I know studies have shown Transglutaminase 6 antibodies indicate gluten ataxia, butthat test is not yet available to the public.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
