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

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.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
