Uh Oh- I've Been Glutened
Posted 19 May 2005 - 09:44 PM
Here's what happened after I ate it: headache, cramping, diarrhea.
-amenorhea (all my life)
-high prolactin levels
-major bloating ("Are you pregnant?")
-possible DH: had the rash on my elbows and scalp (gone now)
-all dairy allergy
-fat in stool sample (no connection was made at the time...I was being tested for something else...When the doctor told me of the fat I replied by saying: "I eat alot of olive oil". DUH!!!!)
-mother is allergic to wheat
-ravenous appetite: I eat for 5 people
-light coloured stool
-pass stool 7 times a day sometimes
-get the hiccups alot (not sure if this is related)
I'm sure there are more that I don't recall at the moment. SIGH.

Some people are allergic to white fish?
Maybe you just got a bad batch (Bacteria, etc)?
Perhaps it came into cross-contamination with something?
Was it cooked in a vessel that may have had traces of gluten in it?
I have been eating baked cod quite a bit over the past 4-5months and have not had any problems. I enjoy the mild flavor and it's a good source of protein.
I hope you feel better!

Of course, as you mentioned that you eat cod with no prob, then maybe you aren't particularly versed in this area...
I stopped eating several kinds of fish a few years ago when I was doing the Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type diet and noticed after I tried eating them again that I would get headaches or stomach aches or smell really strongly of fish for a couple of days after (yeah, that's really fun...). They seemed to be what I would classify as white fish - sole was one, and then halibut was another (don't know if that's white fish). But cod is supposed to be ok (don't eat it, though).
Anyway, sorry it this is getting off topic but this is a knowledgeable group and I'm thinking maybe someone knows more about this...
Thanks for any help!
