Did you eat anything else with the hot dog? Ketchup, mustard, baked beans, etc? Could it possibly be something other than the hot dog?

I don't see anything that would make you sick in the hot dogs, but some people are extra sensitive to preservatives and/or nitrites.

If I remember correctly, sorbitol is a sweetener and also happens to be a laxative when taken in larger amounts. It draws water into the large intestine, stimulating bowel movement. I know I react strongly to even minute amounts of sorbitol. It gives me intestinal cramps :( I can't even chew sugar-free gum or use Flouride rinse or I get very sick. Perhaps you are sensitive to that?

It could be a number of things...I hope you figure it out and look forward to what other have to say :)

Edited to Add: I found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorbitol

It says, "Sorbitol also may aggravate irritable bowel syndrome,[8] and similar gastrointestinal conditions, resulting in severe abdominal pain for those affected, even from small amounts ingested."

thank you for replying to my post I just had some rice & Spinach nothing on the hot dog I think you might be right about the sorbitol every time I have anything sugar free I have a reaction but never as bad as this I'll watch out for that in the future thanks! :P

I doubt this is helpful but this is what happened to me:

I was eating a gluten-free brand of beef franks and feeling like they were bothering me. Well, got allergy tested, went back through labels and low and behold, the franks that I thought were all beef had soy protein in them, well, my allergy test was positive for soy, beef and mustard(which I had been dipping them in! I also tested positive to some spices, which I didn't check to see if they are in the franks yet, but one, if not some, are likely to be. No wonder I felt like they were not quite agreeing with me!

In addition they are the greasiest hot dogs I have ever eaten. I love the way they taste but all the grease doesn't like me much. I hadn't noticed the sorbitol in them, I don't tolerate it either so that may factor in for me also. Too bad cause they taste so good, oh well back to Oscar.

your definitely right about the sorbitol. breath mints, gum, cereal would all give me a stomach ache. have you tried the boar's head brand of hot dogs? they have skinless and aren't greasy. they do of course have the nitrates/ nitrites but great flavor (which is why we always bought the nathan's). :)

Thanks so much for the info on Boar's Head. I'll have to pick those up next time I shop. I love hot dog's baked in saurkraut on a summer day.

Do any of you guys like Hebrew National Kosher Hot Dogs? I hate that most hot dogs contain random body parts of animals (gross out!) and that Hebrew National are high quality. But...I've never tried them. Anybody have any reviews? I did check, they are gluten free :)

:lol: Hebrew National are the ones I was talking about in my previous post. I'm not a conisseur of Hot Dogs/Franks but I liked them-esp. the low carb and sugar content. Those and Boar's Head were my staples. However, as I noted, my body didn't like the HN:( Just my bad luck. Nothing wrong with them.

    • 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.
    • I have confirmed that Member's Mark Ibuprofen are gluten free in three ways: the list of ingredients matches the list of gluten-free excepients from the Gluten Intolerance Group's list, I called the customer service number on the bottle (they confirmed it is gluten-free), and I found another website in which a dr claims it is gluten-free.
