Had Bad Reaction To Gluten Free Sausage
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I had a bad reaction this morning to some shelton turkey no gluten sausage. It was a milder reaction than I used to get. I pooped everything out,(sorry to be gross but I must have gone 7-8 times.) I was slightly nausested. The weirdest symptoms were neurological, I had weird thoughts and my legs felt shakey. :(

My blood tests showed three times the normal level of mold antibodies so my doc gave me a list of foods not to eat and I forgot that sausage was on it! :rolleyes: He said that mold toxins cause neurological symtoms so thats why I used to get my whole body shaking and extreme anxiety like I did.

I had to take 1/2 ativan and 1/4 phenergan to feel better. I don't want to be too sleepy since we are meeting some friends for lunch later. I guess its just human to make a mistake like that,huh?

We are going to Maggianos which is very celiac friendly.

Just needed some support. Its hard to follow a gluten, casein free diet as well as a mold free diet too!

Thanks for listening.

Sincerely,

June

I can imagine. Sorry you are feeling badly. Hope you feel better soon.

Hope you're feeling better by now...it's bad enough having just one food sensitivity.

I've never heard that mold can cause anxiety, or that there was a blood test that can measure mold antibodies. This really peaked my interest, because I have a mold allergy, and I have problems with anxiety too...but I never knew there was a connection.

Would you mind providing a little more info on this, and/or do you know of any good websites where one might read up on mold sensitivity, blood tests, etc?

Thanks!

Hi Steve-O,

My doctor at Health NOw clinic took some blood and sent it to BioHealth Diagnostics . Immunosciences Lab.8393 Wilshire Blvd Beverly Hills CA 90211 310-6571077. I have a huge number of antibodies to mold and am trying to figure out where I have been exposed to it. I think that is my main problem. (Besides the gluten of course. I just sent three more mold samples of to the lab.

Just got home from Maggianos. Had roast chicken, potatoes and asparagus. Was kind of hard to see my friends eating pasta and cake! :unsure: My husband took me to Peets coffee(my favorite) and got me a large soy latte after dinner. I had 1/2 a gluten free brownie when I got home. Unfortunately I still have a stomach ache from this morning.

Its back to a stricter diet tommorow, no sweets at all. :P

Talk to you soon,

June :D

Steve-O,

Just so you know, some molds can be extremely toxic and have been shown to cause death in infants. They definitely have neurotoxic effects. I'll try to find a web site for you.

Thanks all for your support!

June

June,

Thanks for the info. I'll be seeing an allergist next week, so I'll be sure to ask him about mold testing.

Thanks again,

Steve

Maggianos is gluten free friendly? That used to be one of my favorite places, I love Italian food and well they make the best. What gluten-free choices do they have? Is it the Chicago one? And what's all this about gluten-free sausage? I've still been eating sausage since going gluten-free and don't think I've had problems.

I heard Maggianos now is offering rice pasta. You might want to ask about that next time you are there. The closest one to me is 4 hours so I probably won't be going anytime soon.

Anyway, something to ask about.

Stephanie

Read this post to see the good news on Maggiano's. As far as I know the pasta is corn based. (Which I myself can't tolerate...)

Mold allergies stink. I have one, but haven't ever noticed it to food. Hmmm.

Just started dairy-free too. It is hard. I have gone to a milion places looking for this gluten-free, cf vegan cheese. Who knows what it will taste like once I get a hold of some!! Good luck to you June, hope Maggiano's is good to you!

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
