Whoops!

Well I accidentally glutened myself last night at work. ( I work in a restaurant). I knew when I got home and my stomach was perculating, I was confused b/c it was so busy I literally didn't have time to eat b/c it was so busy, I haven't gotten a "official" diagnosis either so I was second guessing the cause of my D. then today I did some research and figured out that the shot of "apple-tini" (apple martini) that my boss poured for us at the end of the night was made from a grain type vodka :huh: whoops- but that also means my celiac theory still stands - I'll continue with gluten-free and be more careful in the future. in the mean time i'm gonna spend this first 1/2 of my day close to the b-room :P

Lucky28-

Don't fret.....Slip-ups happen to all of us. This past weekend I almost ate a piece of hot dog bun at a cookout. I realized after I put the piece in my mouth and spit-it-out. So-far I'm not showing any negative signs from my near-miss.

Best of luck and hope you feel better!

Sorry you don't feel well, but grain-based distilled items are gluten-free unless there's gluten added after they're distilled. I haven't yet found a vodka, even those made with wheat, that isn't gluten-free (not that I've researched every vodka made).

It would be a good idea to keep a food diary. If you are reacting over and over agin to a distilled product that is supposed to be safe ( some people do ) then you can eliminate it from your diet, or you can realise that is was some fluke from cross contamination.

It was a vodka from a local micro brew company-they make beer there too or I'm thinking it could have been from the "sour mix"? either way I'll stick to bacardi if I want a drink.

    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
