Uh Oh- I've Been Glutened
0

4 posts in this topic

I think I've had gluten today. The only different things that I ate from my usual were watermelon and cod fish. I get the cod from a local market, but I don't know what the ingredients are...I just assumed that it would be gluten free. Is it possible that it was preserved with a gluten containing substance? I could possibly be allergic to the cod itself, but am not sure.

Here's what happened after I ate it: headache, cramping, diarrhea.

A few possible thoughts on the cod......

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!

I've been gluten-free for three months and I still have D for no obvious reason at times. My GI told me that the while healing your syptoms can go up and down. This doesn't necessarily mena you injected gluten.

Hi Cleveland Bob or anyone else - I have a question about white fish allergies (if you know...) What fish are considered "white fish"? I keep trying to find info on the web (google.com) and getting sites about cat food and cat allergies. I guess it's the same info and I AM a major cat lover but wouldn't mind any info that points me in the proper direction.

Of course, as you mentioned that you eat cod with no prob, then maybe you aren't particularly versed in this area...

Just curious.

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!

Stephanie

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
