I am very new to how strict I have to be and I did this to myself. I ate Kellogg's Corn Flakes...OK..after 20 mins and now I can hardly move my hands, I ache all over and my gut is doing somersaults...is there anything I can try after the fact that might make this a shorter lived event????
I just checked and found that this cereal is not considered safe and it is now in the garbage, right along with the can of crumbs,but I suspect this is going to happen often. If anyone has any ideas on what might help now, I would love to hear. As my eyes had puffed up and I was achy, I threw some antihistamine in the mix with ibuprofen but am not certain now whether I made the situation better or worse!!!! Help!!!

No, not a safe cereal! Nor is Rice Krispies. You need to do your due diligence with mainstream products. Just because it says it rice or corn doesn't mean it doesn't have gluten.

My son, also a celiac, takes activated charcoal when he gets accidentally glutened. Not each time it happens, just when severe. He swears by it, that it cuts the suffereing post haste. Haven't tried it myself.

Here is a link to General Mills gluten free product list, which includes cereals:

ANd you may want to pick up one of those gluten free shopping guides, like:
http://www.ceceliasm...free-guide.html
or
http://www.triumphdining.com/

They are really helpful.

Did you also get a new toaster? You can't use old one or share.

Ack! Definitely try to avoid processed foods and/or carry a list of safe/not safe ingredients until you get used to it.

I generally just suffer, and down licorice/ginger/mint tea to settle the tummy over the next couple of days. I like it, don't really know that it helps.

2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable
3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG
4/2010 Negative biopsy
5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)
5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?
