How Long Does Your Reaction Last?

8 posts in this topic

I had posted in another post that I got glutened on some chicken salad on Thursday. Here it is Sunday and I am still having diarrhea. I made sure to be super careful Friday, Saturday, and today to avoid all gluten and made my meals from scratch to be sure. Yet I still have symptoms. I know it can still be from the chicken salad, and my last reaction lasted about as long. Just wondering if with each exposure, the length of the reaction is longer?

Thanks,

Jenn

Hi Jenn,

I'd say it depends what was in the chicken salad. My episodes with the big D last at least 3-4 days. I think it differs on an individual basis. Just hang in there and drink plenty of water so you don't get dehydrated. Feel free to PM me if you want to vent one-o-one.

When I get glutened, my symptoms last a solid three days. Since I'm underweight, I always try to avoid "D".

If you're a coffee drinker, try a caffeine free tea in the morning vs. coffee. If you really need caffeine, green tea is the way to go. Coffee is too harsh for your system when you've been glutened, at least in mho.

Since chicken salad is the source of your problem, I'd avoid chicken as a protein source for a couple of days. (But that could just be me.)

Homemade soup with rice and vegetables will give you nutrients and sustenance.

A hot soak in the bath with epsom salts and baking soda can help relieve the stress.

Any fruit with a rich source of pectin is good when you have "d", like blueberries or apples or star fruit, and is good for your autoimmune system because of the antioxidants. I used to avoid fruit when I had loose stools but it's good to consume fruit, either raw or in a compote. Kaopectate (common Anti-diahhreal medication) is derived from fruit pectin.

Pepto Bismal is gluten-free too. Hope you feel better soon.

I know your pain chili ... There was a really good article about Gluten Ataxia in "Living Without" Magazine that you might be interested in reading. It appeared in last month's issue, not the current issue.

Good luck and good health,

:)

I certainly know your pain! I am 38 years old and have had the "D" all my life, without ever being properly diagnosed, until a week ago!

I have high hopes for my recent diagnosis of celiacs, and pray to god I will be well soon with great efforts.

Someone told me tumeric helps "D" does anyone know if this is true?

Tumeric is a great spice, but anti-D isn't one of the things it is known for. It really is a great spice, a natural anti-biotic, antioxidant, and more. The National Instute of Health had some interesting studies about tumeric. Do a search for "health benefits of tumeric" and you may want to start implementing tumeric in your diet. I LOVE Indian foods, so I use tumeric quite often while cooking.

Black seed cumin is more known for an anti-diarrea agent. Make a tea out of 1 tsp cumin seed and 1 cup of almost boiling water. Cumin seed is a good source of iron and delicious when cooked in gluten-free flatbreads or curries, or with potatoes. It's a good source of iron and has been used for ages for digestive problems.

I bought one Indian Cookbook when going gluten-free and received two more as gifts. You have to skip some of the recipes but easily 3/4 of them are gluten-free and absolutely scrumptious.

I pray to God you will feel better soon too. You are so young and have so much life to live, I know things will get better for you!

    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
    • Many things can damage the small intestine besides celiac disease: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ Happily, I can share that I became a Great-Aunt this week for the first time  to a charming little boy. Sadly, my lovely 19 year old niece was diagnosed yesterday with Crohn's.  She had so many symptoms of celiac disease, I was sure she had it.  Actually, I was hoping that she'd have it, because Crohn's can be much worse.  At least there is a "cure" or known trigger for it -- gluten!   Anyway, your daughter might be suffering from something other than celiac disease.  It is possible.  It could be a food intolerance (e.g. milk).  My niece has suffered for years with periodic episodes of abdominal pain, vomiting, etc.  She doesn't have all the "classic" Crohn's Disease symptoms either, yet a recent pill cam revealed a lot!  Her endoscopy was normal.  Celiac panel normal.  Gallbladder scan normal (non-functioning gallbladder is a family curse).  My heart goes out to her, but at least we know what we are dealing with.  Will she ever get celiac disease?  It could happen. Keep advocating, Mom.  That's what I kept telling my SIL.  I also provided my SIL  a family health history tree that each GI was happy to receive.  Unfortunately, no one has had Crohn's in the family.  But, at least it allowed him to test my nieces gallbladder and for celiac disease (a full panel,  mind you).   It would not hurt to get a second opinion.
