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?

Good luck! :)


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!
