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!

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
