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.

    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)
       
    • Excellent point, GFinDC!!! I just assumed that Steph had the endoscopy and not just the antibodies tests.    
    • She (your PCP)  can order a celiac blood panel.  It might not be a complete panel, but it's a start.  Any medical doctor can order one.  A GI is needed for the endoscopy (ulcers, Celiac disease, h.pylori, etc.), HIDA scan (gallbladder)  or colonoscopy (IBS).   Since you just saw her, email/call/write a letter and ask her to order (lab) the celiac panel.  You could go to the lab before or after work.  Pretty easy!  
    • I just now saw the second reply and I see what you mean. Again, the issue is that I may have to go with the gluten until close to the end of the year.

      However, an idea did just come to mind, and that is, can my primary care doctor do such a test? I had normal blood work done, but they didn't really say anything about testing for celiacs. I can get an appointment with my primary care doctor much sooner than a GI.

      When I was talking to my PCP last, I asked her what I should expect as far as testing goes or what she may have been concerned about. Her reply was about a HIDA scan for the gallbladder but also any test needed in case of IBS or Celiacs. Just the way she threw that in there like an after thought and left me hanging kinda had me worried.
    • I am not a doctor that's for sure.  So, I can't even answer your questions.  If you know you have pre-diabetes, you probably are working with a doctor.  Can you email them and ask for a celiac blood panel?   You can work on the weight loss and diabetes -- that you can handle yourself now and take action.  I have diabetes and my glucose readings are fairly normal now without medication and I'm thin.  Being overweight does not cause diabetes.  It's either autoimmune (type 1) or you become insulin resistant (type 2).  You can cut out all sugar and  processed stuff ASAP to help take action and start walking 10,000 steps (helps with the insulin resistance).    But the prediabetes is not going to kill you in the next year.  Whatever's in your gut is more likely going to get you much sooner.  But heck, I'm not a doctor and I don't even know you!
