Sore Throat As A First Sign Of Glutening
0

14 posts in this topic

So a few times in the last couple of weeks I've been getting adventurous with my food - trying new brands etc. When something didn't agree with me, the first sign I've noticed is a sore throat, like a mild burning sensation. This happened with :

* Gino Ginelli ice cream both times I had it ( Unilever brand, no wheat listed, no gluten warnings, only "modified starches" which should be non-wheat, and "glucose syrup")

* Nestle ice cream (Again no gluten mentioned, no warnings)

* Orgran gluten-free biscuits

After the sore throat is a sore stomach, and then d a few hours later, anxiety etc etc. Note I don't get this for other types of ice-cream, like store-bought no-name-brand chocolate ice-cream, or my own home-made biscuits so it's not lactose upsetting my stomach.

What I really hate is that these are supposedly "gluten free" items, no warnings listed. I can only guess there's some cross contamination with the product or in the original ingredients.

I thought the sore throat is interesting though, makes an early warning system for me.

Hi Marz!!

I have had a sore, scratchy throat and "burny" mouth/tongue for almost 2 years. Like all my other symptoms, no one could explain it to me :angry:

I definitely tie it to the gluten.Even drinking club soda hurt going down. :blink: At times, I felt like it would close right up.

It had started to subside, along with the D and anxiety, etc... (I am gluten-free 5 weeks) and then, last week, I was glutened somehow and until I read your post this morning I could not, for the life of me, figure it out as I am very careful.

I ate ORGRAN animal crackers!!

I have wondered if anyone else had this burny throat symptom. Sorry you get it, because it is uncomfortable, but glad to know I am not alone and that someday, it will subside for good as I remain gluten-free.

Thanks a million for posting this! It was a mystery that had me sick for several days and completely discouraged and baffled.

And, the Orgran crackers are in the trash.... ;) they weren't that tasty anyway. :P

Yes, I get this too. I also get it with dairy items though. Have you considered a secondary intolerance or food allergy?

We're eating gluten free for our teen, and last night my husband ordered veal piccata. He hasn't eaten any wheat for two months and his throat became very sore and his nose completely congested. Anyway he won't be doing that again.

i never had the burning- but wheat & gluten & SUGAR always make me feel like im about to be getting a sore throat. wheat always gave me post nasal drip... (always congested me more than dairy)... and sugar always gave me that "im getting sick" feeling... many times i would be like: am i REALLY getting sick? or is it just too much sugar?

Yes i also get a dry feeling in my nose and throat,lower back pain and tirednesss.I myself am strict gluten free but venturing out trying other brands as long as it dosen't have any gluten ingridients its safe to eat.At first i was worried about eating this n that and if it didnt say gluten free right on the package i wouldnt eat it. But i now am just following the diet guidlines if gluten isnt in the ingriedients you can have it, i also follow sanitary guidlines to try to prevent cc.But i def dont worry about cc as much as i used to im trying to enjoy life as much as possible and almost all of my stomach troubles have went totally away which is a GREAT THING!

I know I'm sensitive to dairy - in that if I eat a lot I'm going to feel a bit ill :P But if I eat small amounts of no-name brand ice cream I feel fine. It might also be the combination of lots of sugar + dairy, the Gino Ginelli was *very* rich.

Yup, have had that feeling before :P

I'm glad I helped solve the mystery for you! :D The biscuits for me was definitely not pleasant. Times like these I wish I had gluten test strips, so I could check it, and send to them with a big angry letter of complaint. As it is, I'm just guessing, but my gut tells me I'm right ;)

And, the Orgran crackers are in the trash.... ;) they weren't that tasty anyway. :P

Hehe, they aren't that great and they cost a fortune! :P Strangely enough, the Orgran gluten-free flour (white flour) seems to be ok - I've made biscuits from them before and I was fine. What ingredients do those crackers have - does it include Sorghum or pea flour? I think their plain rice/corn/potato starch flour mix is OK, but the other flours might have small amounts of CC from when it's originally harvested/milled.

Both my dad and I suffer from post nasal drip. It's become a *lot* better gluten-free. I also used to get that "I'm getting sick" feeling from eating lots of chocolate, but it might have been gluten-containing chocolate, so maybe the dairy + gluten combination was killing me. I used to think the post nasal drip was worse after eating dairy, but now it seems to be fine after 6 months gluten-free :)

ohmygosh!

Nice!! I used to get frequent "throat infections", sinus infections, mild sore throats with no explanation. I also didn't realise they were gone until now when I noticed the sudden sore throat.

Thanks for all the responses! :)

I keep meaning to buy them now, too.

Yes! I had the IgG food panel done last year. Showed SOY as "severe". That was the only food that registered as a problem. I do not eat any dairy either as my doctor suggested I remove it when I went gluten-free.

If something else is bothering me, I'll be darned if I can figure it out. Some have suggested I wait a while as I am only gluten-free 5 weeks and see what resolves in time. I don't know. I am tired of feeling sick and in a "histamine"- type response all the time. I had ELISA testing and environmental allergy testing...NEGATIVE for everything! so, I am very confused by this continued ill feeling.

Any thoughts appreciated! Thanks!

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Hi everybody, I'm a 20 year old male, diagnosed with Celiac in February via biopsy, after suffering with progressively worsening symptoms for around a year. I had the blood test for Celiac in June 2015, which came back negative. My main issue pre-diagnosis was a feeling of uncomfortable fullness after eating small amounts which became more and more severe to the point where I was hospitalised in January with malnutrition and severe weight loss. I was placed on a NG feeding tube whilst in hospital as I was struggling to eat at all by this point (even a bowl of cereal led to hours of discomfort - the only comparison I can use to describe the feeling was as if there was a brick sitting in my stomach after eating). An endoscopy I had whilst in hospital showed I had Celiac (flattened villi with inflammation) and follow-up gene test was positive. After a couple of months at home on the NG tube, I found I was able to eat small amounts of food again with some symptoms but not of the severity I was experiencing previously. It seemed as if the time spent on the tube in addition to the gluten-free diet had allowed some healing to take place. I was able to eat enough to maintain my weight and came off the tube completely. My symptoms are similar now to when I came off the tube about 6 weeks ago, but I can cope with it for the moment until it heals fully. It has been a very difficult year but I'm pleased to see some progress now. Currently, however, I am having problems tolerating food in the morning. I had been having Tesco gluten-free cornflakes with milk for breakfast and finding that OK, however I think the recipe may have been changed as the texture/taste became more coarse and I suddenly noticed the symptoms were considerably worse after eating them and upset my stomach for the rest of the day. I tried gluten-free rice krispies and milk, again without success. I am not lactose intolerant as milk and cheese don't cause problems for me and milk actually seems to settle my stomach in the morning, as when I tried toast on its own, it was much worse than milk and cereal. Has anyone had similar issues early in the day or got any tips or advice for what to eat/drink with Celiac/intestinal inflammation in the morning? Thank you for your help. 
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Several conditions other than Celiac, can elevate ttg readings including autoimmune diseases, a parasitic disease/infection etc. Also for some patients the ttg can be a false positive. Which is why I think its helpful to have the full panel, to make an interpretation.  Your GI/Gut specialistic can run the full panel on the NHS.  Which is what they did for me before the biopsy.   
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Several conditions can cause increased lymphocytes in the duodenum including Celiac.  The blood test will help confirm /rule out Celiac. If your villi is normal along with negative celiac blood test, then this would make celiac unlikely. Do you know which blood test has been requested now and two years ago?  Its possible that something could have been missed if the full celiac blood panel was not run.

    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Hello... 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac. Looking at the various flours used to replace traditional flour is a bit overwhelming. I have a Retsel grain mill and I'm considering milling my own gluten-free flour. I have a few questions. First and foremost, would it be cost effective? Obviously, buying flour already processed is more convenient but terribly expensive. Does anyone here have experience with how accessible the ingredients are to do the milling yourself? Rice is readily accessible as well as many varieties of beans. What about milling coconut flour and some of the more exotic flours? Secondly, I'm wondering if milling at home will produce a fine enough product to be comparable to what can be purchased in store. Any experiences or suggestions would be appreciated.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
