I've Just Been Glutened!
0

3 posts in this topic

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:

or

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.

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
