Glutened Agin
0

8 posts in this topic

Remember that poster back in the 70's (those of you who are old enough) of the guy with his head melting onto the table, titled "Stoned Agin"? Well, I'm glutened agin. Don't know what happened, been eating exactly the same foods I've been eating. But last night, whamm-o! Still suffering the consequences today.

Drat.

The only thing I can come up with is CC in the kitchen. My DH is a gluten eater (glutenator? sounds like Terminator!) so maybe I picked up a crumb somewhere. I've been symptom-free for weeks now, so this is really discouraging, especially since I don't know how it happened.

For those of you with glutenators in your household, do you get glutened regularly? I mean... how careful do you have to be NOT to get cc'd? I have my own knives, cutting board, toaster, cooking utensils, etc. We do share plates and silverware, but I wash everything very carefully. I always clean the countertops and go through a roll of paper towels every 3 days. Well, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but I use them a LOT. I have my own shelf in the pantry and my own shelf in the fridge, above any of the poisonous gluten products.

What am I missing?

Have you been making out while he eats toast?

My girlfriend went gluten-free for me, bless her heart, and even chose to give up her favorite body lotion because it had wheat.

Contamination is the hardest part of being gluten-free, because it's so hard to control and you often don't know you messed up until after you get sick.

oh i know. it has been over a month for me and then i somehow ate something a couple of days ago because i am miserable. i just want to cleanse my system. i don't know if someone didn't clean something properly or what. i'm the only one gluten free but i'm afraid the husband or boys might have not been as careful as i would be cleaning up. i absolutely feel miserable and don't know how to make it better fast enough. i'm drinking lots of water but are you or is it possible to eat or do something to cleanse the system faster??

Is DH brushing his teeth, mouthwash, etc. before kissing you after performing as THE GLUTENATOR?

Good thought but.... yes, he is.

Performing as the glutenator.... I'm getting mental pictures... :D

Performing is such a loaded word in this instance. You are cracking me up! :lol::lol:

My husband is not totally gluten-free but it has only caused one gluten hit for me in 5 years and it was my fault...forgot to wash my hands after making him a sandwich. The only dedicated appliance I have is the toaster. We share everything except the few cooking utensils, which are the wooden ones, he uses for his occasional pot of spaghetti. I have Le Creuset cookware, which is enamel coated, so there is no problem with CC there unless someone doesn't wash it correctly. That never happens...my husband is awesome with his knowledge of CC. If you wash everything well, there should be no issue with CC.

I am as sensitive as a Celiac comes and this is not a problem for us at all. All foods are stored in glass containers in the fridge and I do not have a dedicated shelf for myself...no need to. I think because we have no kids, it makes this so much easier. The only things which are separate, as far as food is concerned, are peanut butter, jams or anything dipped into in a jar. I am totally asymptomatic and every blood test I have had repeated comes back with really, really low numbers so I am comfortable with this routine.

I don't think you can expect to live out the rest of your life with no gluten incidents. I have only had a few in the past 5 years and don't sweat it.

It won't impede your recovery. I hate being sick and feel awful if it happens but, compared to what things were like pre-gluten-free, I can handle 2-3 days of feeling bad. Don't drive yourself batty trying to figure it out...unless it happens again soon and then it may be easier to retrace your steps and figure it out.

    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
    • by the way, I do find the lab who does the gluten sensitive test Gluten Allergy IgE Test This test is used to determine if a person has an allergic reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.  Roughly 1 in 30 adults and 1 in 40 children suffer from a Gluten Allergy.  An IgE test looks for antibodies which develop in a person who has a particular allergy.  Gluten Allergy can display symptoms similar to other conditions such as Celiac Disease.  Unlike an allergy, Celiac Disease can do permanent harm to the body if left untreated.  Allergy testing when a person is experiencing symptoms can help identify or rule out an allergy as the cause.

      Gluten Allergy is typically less severe than other Gluten related conditions like Celiac Disease.  People with Gluten Allergy will often experience abdominal discomfort, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea when they eat products containing gluten.  These symptoms usually stop when a person cuts gluten out of their diet.

      A Gluten Allergy IgE test can be ordered to help determine if someone allergic to gluten.  This test can also be ordered when a person is testing for Celiac Disease and has had negative results on Celiac specific antibody tests.  An allergy test can also be ordered prior to Celiac testing to rule out Gluten Allergy as a likely cause for a person’s symptoms.
