How Long Does Your Reaction Last?

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!

    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Are there any foods, like broth, that don't make your son feel sick?
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I agree. As an adult its a little easier to withstand the rolling of eyes and exaggerated sighs from people who think you are over reacting and being too fussy.  My youngest has anaphylaxis to fish and seafood and people are incredibly understanding and careful - but it seems celiacs has become a "fad" due to gluten intolerant people removing credibility from true celiacs.  Adults can argue but kids are vulnerable. Socially its really isolating for them.    I totally relate to the waiting on endoscopy. For my very sick 12 year old the 8-9 weeks we waited for sheer hell and I felt I was feeding him rat poison. Now my 17 year old is waiting on his, booked for later this week.  Its a total nightmare waiting knowing you can start the healing if only you could stop feeding them gluten.  But I figure for future reference, having a solid diagnosis via biopsy is important. Good luck to you and your son.
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Hugs to you and your daughter. My son and I are in the same boat, or at least,  paddling alongside your boat.  At their age being scrupulous about their diet is not only incredibly hard but socially isolating. Adults consider celiac people to be a pain so imagine what their young friends think.  Feeling so unwell and having no energy adds to their distress. And the thing is - I don't think at that age that they really understand that even the slightest bit of gluten will set them back badly.  I know my son is convinced one sweet won't matter. It really really sucks.  
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      No one in my wider family gets it, although my sister is certainly trying to understand. She gets that I will bring all food for my coeliac kids when we come for meals and is okay with that.    For other social events, I will suggest the meal is at my place so I can control the gluten.  But my biggest battle is my children's father (my ex husband) who refuses to get it, and thinks I am being stupid and trying to prevent him seeing V.  I have offered that V can visit but not eat nor stay the night.  Ex does not have the means or the brains to manage gluten free meals.    At this point it looks like I may need to go to court to get an order to prevent V from being forced to go and get glutened. I really really hope to avoid this, but its not looking good. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I guess it's the "natural flavoring" which throws me off. It could or could not contain gluten and it's in so many products. I haven't been on a gluten-diet for as long as you...6 years. I may have bee undiagnosed and untreated for more than 25 years since i had signs that went back to chidhood. Yes, I have balance/anxiety/neuro issues. I know anxiety is connected to damage in intestines, but I don't know for sure if celiac causes balance/neuro issues. I was already tested for brain ataxia, but I didn't get too far on that. Well, there wasn't an exact test, but the neurologist noted that I was walking straight or something on those grounds so I must not have it. I know studies have shown Transglutaminase 6 antibodies indicate gluten ataxia, butthat test is not yet available to the public.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
