Hi Mario,

I'm sorry you are still feeling bad. It can sometimes take up to a week or more to get rid of the effects of gluten after an accident. You should be better soon, just make sure you don't have another accident for a while.

Happy Belated Birthday. Mine is today! I'm 32 years old. We went out to eat and I am hoping the meal was fine. I really don't want to get sick this week. It was a chicken breast on a salad. (grilled, and I forgot to tell them to make sure they cleaned the grill first! oops. I was so worried about the dressing and the croutons on the salad) I also ordered a plain baked potato, but as I sit here right now I realise I never got the potato. I hope my husband didn't pay for it...

God bless,

Mariann

Hi Mario,

Thanks for the Birthday wishes. No I don't have MSN, or any other chat features. But that's okay. I check my e-mail daily and feel free to e-mail me. I'll get right back to you. :)

It may take a while for you to get back on track. Just hang in there, and yes, it might be good to start back at the basics. The easy to digest foods that you were able to tolerate at the beginning. This will give your body a break while it heals.

God bless,

Mariann

Mario, this might be a little late, but do not forget to drink lots of water to replace the liquids you lost during the diarrhea bouts. Gatorade is good for this too as it contains essential electrolytes. Dehydration is a very real concern during times like this. Good luck!

Mario & Mariann - Happy Birthday to both of you! Mine was Feb. 17th (I turned 34) and that is the day I went gluten-free. So far so good! :D

Mario - I hope you feel better soon!

I have a question about accidents: If we discover our mistake within 20 minutes, will throwing up stop the reaction? Or will it cause even more problems? I ate three Pria bars, which have barley malt in them, and while I was eating the last one, learned that barley malt is bad! That was yesterday, last night and now I am just miserable! If I had gone and thrown up, would I have avoided this misery? :unsure:

Dessa,

Throwing up might help a little bit, but I think that once the reaction starts, there's not much that can be done about it. The symptoms are not caused directly by gluten, but rather by the body's immune system--and once the defenses are marshalled, they're going to do their "job" even if the gluten suddenly disappears!

I'm questioning myself, are rice cakes safe with peanut butter or kraft jams. I eat the quaker rice cakes natural..

Throwing up won't get rid of all traces of gluten. Even one microscopic speck is enough to make a lot of people react, and is enough to cause damage. The only thing I can think of that throwing up may help is that the body has less gluten to clear out of your system.

Hmmm, my body seems to have made it's own decision about vomiting <_< the last time I had an accident. I had NO control over it at all, It wanted OUT of my body. I guess my system has realized that gluten is a bad thing for me, and it wants no part of it.

As much as I would love to have a bite of pizza or something, I simply cannot knowingly do it. The repercussions were enough to stifle that Idea completely.

Blessings

My body is like that too- if it doesn't like something I ate, it doesn't stay down. I also tend to vomit when I get stressed out or really upset. Been like that for years.

When I went to see Passion of the Christ, I was so disturbed by the violence that I felt like I was going to throw up several times during the movie, and also felt queasy on through the next day. I guess I have a sensitive stomach.

    • So, LST my celiac sibling thinks I should see a naturopath to get additional food sensitivity tests. I think this is swell, but expensive for me. He had a panel done and was reacting to some foods he ate the most of. I have reached out to a local allergist and they do food testing but do not accept my insurance. I was going to make some more calls tomorrow. I actually do have mild reactive airway disease too which seems to go hand-in-hand with the allergists. I honestly had no idea, but makes since. What type of tests have folks had? I know I am not allergic to most foods as of November. My former GI doc ran a basic panel then but it seemed short. Has anyone had any luck with these? I read there is a difference between IGE and IGG tests. Anyone get a doc to order them and insurance to cover? I may end up having to save up for awhile to have this done with a naturopath. But I was off of payroll recently with all of this and the idea of waiting for a couple of more months to find out what other foods may be trigging me really sucks. I am off of dairy and soy, suspicious of lettuce and shrimp.
    • How about reaching out to your local celiac disease support group? http://www.houstonceliacs.org
    • Yes, I am in Houston, TX. Can anyone recommend a good GI in Houston, lots of experience with celiac?  
    • I am sorry to hear about your mother.   It is not so hard to get a medical doctor to order a celiac panel -- especially if your father was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Our family GP did not blink an eye when I first asked my daughter to be tested.    If you think your doctor will disregard your legitimate request, you can either fire him or put the request in writing and send it certified (attorneys love documentation!)  I agree that our doctors should support us.  I have a great GI, but my GP  is pretty clueless when it comes to celiac disease, but she admits it.    She does always order all the lab tests I request.  Perhaps it is because I come in with supporting medical documentation and evidence.  If she was not supportive to my satisfaction, I would find a new doctor.   Again, you can go gluten free in your own.   Chance are you have celiac disease.    But it is hard.  Really hard if you do not have the support of your family.  That is my concern.   Are you in the US?  
    • I've just read SO MUCH about the long, arduous process of getting a positive diagnosis through traditional medicine - I'm not sure I want to put myself through all that. Since my father WAS positively diagnosed - I carry the celiac gene and another gene that predisposes me to gluten sensitivity - and my fecal tests for gliadin were SO elevated - there are enough reasons for me to go to a gluten free diet. The true medical diagnosis would just make it easier for my family/friends to believe the necessity of it. My children are adults and not particularly health care nuts. I doubt they would take their own risk seriously without a medical diagnosis. I'm afraid my husband, while he is trying to be supportive at this point, will grow weary of all the things I no longer serve at meals and all the places we will no longer go to because there are not gluten free alternatives on the menu. A medical diagnosis would make it easier for him, long term, I think.  I don't have much faith in general in our western health care system. My mother died 6 months ago at age 82 after 4-5 years of many different health issues. She had given up the keys to her car in her late 70's after getting lost several times. I became her designated driver to all doctor appointments, procedures, hospital stays, etc. The incompetence and disregard I saw blew me away. I'm surprised any elderly people survive our health care system once they get on that revolving door. The reason I started seeing a naturopath is that I am looking for an alternative to medical doctors for most of my health issues as I age. I know there are some things I still have to see them for - and of course, they are essential in trauma and emergency situations. But I am on a quest to follow a more holistic approach to my health care. If this is the path I am choosing, then I have to follow my gut (no pun intended) in situations like this. I think the only reason I would go through the medical testing would be for other people - not me. It seems to me, that with so many people being gluten intolerant these days, a decent M.D. would listen to a patient that was adamant about their intent to live gluten free - positive celiac diagnosis or not (and especially with the gene and stool test results). I mean, they don't tell vegetarians they have to eat meat ... and vegetarianism is a personal choice. Sorry if I seem to be rambling ... this is all so new, and I'm trying to find my way.
