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!

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      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.
