Accidentally Ate Gluten, What Can I Do?
0

6 posts in this topic

CRAP!!!! I can't believe I just did this!!! My bf brought me some beef jerky, and I didn't even THINK to look at the ingredients...why?? I DON'T KNOW!!! I've been so busy today, and was finally relaxing, watching tv, and grabbed the jerky. I ate the whole bag, then my mouth felt sorta funny, and I thought, wait a sec, I never checked the ingredients..........sure enough, contains soy AND WHEAT!!!

Do I induce vomiting? Would that help? 'cause I will!!! Seriously, I'm scared, I don't need this right now. I also gave blood today, so I'm already not 100%. I work at 1130 tomorrow morning, and I'm worried I'm going to be really ill! I almost lost my job the last time I took a Sunday off....why is it always Sundays? Strange. ANYWAYS.............

WHAT DO I DO???!!

We all do it but it will become more of a habit to read labels. I really like Align - the probiotic from Proctor and Gamble. You can get it any where but it is expensive. I don't give blood any more although I would like to. It just makes me too tired. Don't induce vomiting . . . you will just have to gut it out if you will excuse the pun. :rolleyes: Really try Align and I am not a paid spokesperson.

Sorry!!!! :( That sucks big time. The only thing I do that helps is drink lots and lots of peppermint tea. For some reason it soothes my whole body's yucky feeling.....and I don't really get horrible gastric reactions.

Feel better! Don't beat yourself up too bad. It's hard to get used to being so vigilant about food all the time.

inducing vomiting will make things worse. It'll really damage your esophagus and your teeth as well. And it won't prevent the reaction either...

Milk of magnesia to get it out faster, and Pepto Bismol to reduce the irritation. And lots of water.

Ok, thanks, guys, I'll have to stock up on some of those items. I panicked, so I did induce vomiting, but I won't next time. My reaction wasn't that intense, although very very very bad headache the next day.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
