I'm Putting Aside The Rice Cakes
0

20 posts in this topic

I'm putting aside the rice cakes, cuz of the accidental ingestion last weekend. I called quaker and, they told me there rice cakes are gluten free, plus I'm putting aside the kraft peanut butter. I'm just scared to eat anything and, fall back to step one..I'v just been on the diet for 4 weeks and, my third week was a wreck, and, now I'm back on the diareeha, I'v had for one week about twice daily all I'v done all week was call the 1-800 no's and, question all the companys, can we really trust the sources?? What can I eat, I'm tired and, depressed :( ..

I'm so scared to lose the weight I put on, I'm a very small man.. :(

I need some positive vibes..

Try eating very simply for at least a week or so. Eat only plain rice, veggies, fruit, meat (no deli meat) and perhaps Lundberg rice cereal for breakfast. Then graduate to adding one item back to your diet at a time and only every three or four days. I, too, had a difficult time with the diet at first. Now I've been on the diet for three years and am doing just fine with it, as long as I stay away from restaurants. Also, If you haven't eliminated dairy products, you must do so for at least 6 or 7 weeks. Many of us are very lactose intolerant until our villi begin to function again and this takes time. Then you can add a little dairy back to see if you can tolerate it. Don't get discouraged, this isn't easy but well worth the trouble in the long run to feel well again. It does take a lot of time and effort, so be patient. Shirley

I've been gluten-free for over 6 months and have never had an easy time with this diet, so I feel your pain. I had the diarrhea return after 5 months on the diet, and it freaked me out and depressed me. I was convinced something terrible was happening, like refractory sprue or worse. But, it stopped after about ten days, and things are normalizing again. Don't let this setback throw you too much, just eat very simply, go off all dairy, and see if you improve within 2 weeks. If not you can always follow up with your GI doc to see what, if anything, is going on, but most likely it was just accidental gluten ingestion. Strip your diet down to meat and rice and fresh vegetables, and anything else easy to digest. If things get bad you can always take an anti-diarrheal from over the counter. In the meantime change the diet a little and wait for good results!

don't forget that peanut butter may have bread crumbs in it if the the jar is shared with others in your family who are not gluten-free. (this also goes for butter and jellies). I have separate jars with a big "gluten-free only" mark on the top.

Which Quacker rice cakes did you have problems with?

I use the plain, salt free for sandwhiches and then eat the carmel corn ones for snacks, as well as a honey nut from a different brand I got in Omaha. Just hoping that the caramel onees aren't bad, since they haven't bothered me.

awww you guys are all loving friends..I'm inviting you all for fruits and, coffee..hehe

Yeah the doc told me to slack of the dairy..but I really love my morning cereals, they give reason to wake up happy. The doc told me it will subside within 10 days, I really have no cramps at all just a little dizzy..boh don't know why, but I still go out and, drive my car and, go shopping. I also realize all the junk people buy in supermarkets no one reads labels. The doc also told me that yogurt I can have and, i eat the yoplait brand with the fruits inside, I'm doing well with that one, I also called yoplait and, they are gluten free. How many of you can tolerate the artaficiel flavors..

I'm living with my mommy and, she doesn't eat peanut butter or, jams so there's no contamination there for me..

Whay peanut butter do you guys eat???? Kraft is gluten free because I called the company but, I still question the maltodextrine thats in there..I'd like to know what starch is put in there...

anyone.. B)

Mario-

I'm not sure about the Kraft peanut butter, but I know tht JIF and Skippy are gluten-free...now if I could only get certain family members to take notice of the big black "gluten-free" on the lid and sides and stop leaving crumbs, I'd be all set.

Good luck and I hope you're feeling better soon!

Mario,

I'm a real peanut butter eater and when I was diagnosed I was told not to eat regular peanut butter. I use Smucker's Natural Peanut Butter. The only ingredients are peanuts and salt. I didn't realize how much sugar was in regular peanut butter until I had eaten this for a while. Jif was always my favorite but it tastes so sweet since I've started eating Smucker's. It does have the peanut oil on the top so when it's opened it has to be mixed a bit. Actually I pour about half the oil off because I don't want all the added calories. Hope this is some help to you. I've noticed you've had several replies about peanut butter.

Good luck with your diet. It just takes time. I've been gluten free for three years and a couple of months ago I started having problems again. I'm sure it was something I'd been eating over a period of time that I didn't realize was not gluten free so I just started eliminating things as many have told you to do. It will work if you'll just be patient..............Judy :rolleyes:

The reason why I asked about the peanut butter is because it is very nutritional for us celiacs, a couple of rice cakes with peanut butter can make a great daily snack or morning breakfast with cereals gluten-free and, orange juice. I love to slice up a banana and, put some on a rice cake with peanut butter..

i decided to stick to the natural brand rice cakes..

Mario, have you ever tried almond butter? It makes a great alternative to peanut butter, but like the natural peanut butter, it has to be mixed when you open it, since the oil settles on the top, but once it is mixed well (I let my Kitchenaid do the mixing) and you refrigerate it it stays mixed for quite a long time. The same goes for the natural peanut butter. The natural ones are much healthier than the processes ones that are full od hydrogenated oils and sugar. Hang in their Mario. We all experience a little set back occasionally. I thought I was gluten-free this week, but now I am wondering if I got contaminated somewhere since I'm in the bathroon way too often today and last night I had awful gas pains and bloating. :( It just comes with the territory I guess. You might want to go easy on the yogurt for a while. Just to give your system a break while it is recovering. And I found that Blue Diamond Almond Breeze original flavor is a great milk alternative for cereal. It doesn't overpower the flavor of the cereal. By the way, what kind of cereal are you eating??

God bless,

Mariann

Whats up mariann/ first of have you got messenger for chatting..please say you do..

I'm having the corn pops biologique marked gluten free on them, they are the best I'v tried and, are very cheap 2.99$ a box, I eat two boxes a week..I have one yogurt in the morning, I just feel my stomach and, villi growling when I go to bed, starts around one in the morning and, around 3:00am i need to go and, its my first diareeha kind of watery and, also go back again around 6:00am, diareeha again and, then I'm fine the whole day, off course this is still due to the ingestion of gluten last weekend, which was my birthday, but it will subside as I'm keeping a stricked diet.

I was doing great the first three weeks, eating right I had a nice stool(formed), until last weekend---Poof!! Oh well things will get better

I'd really love to chat.. :)

Sorry, Mario. No messenger yet. I've never had it, so I guess I don't know what I'm missing...

As for the problems you are having. It could be the yogurt. Did you just recently start having it daily? You may want to give it up for about a week and see if it makes a difference. Of course this all could just be the effects of your accident last week, but the fact that is happens at the same time each day makes me think it is linked to something you eat at about the same time each day (like breakfast). If your breakfast is the same everyday, and you also have the "bathroom adventures" at the same time each day, then that might be an association worth investigating.

Anyhow, I hope you are doing better soon.

God bless,

Mariann

What rice cakes did you have problems with?

Peanut Butter> Talk about someone who's addicted to the stuff, lol *points to self* Since I hvae to give up Reese's (milk in the chocolate :(.), I just use the Skippy Honey Nut. It's yummy, it's safe, and I"m the only one in the house who uses that flavour!

Question at large> Today for dinner I had a ham slice, a glass of Cherry Juicy Juicy, and a small bowl of pers. Followed by the horrid pain in my abdomen and then it lodged in my back like my gallbladder used to do. This meal was wheat, glute, and dairy free...help? Mind you, I think my bowels are clean, but that's not the way I like to do it!

Kel,

It may have been the ham. Not all are gluten-free. Or the nitrates if it has any(they are gluten-free, but bother some people). Or it could have been just too much fruit. For a while I was not able to digest fruit without the aid of digestive enzymes. Are you sure the juice was gluten-free? Amazingly enough not all juices are. I just can't believe some of the things they put gluten in. It is also possible that it was not a gluten reaction at all, but another food allergy or intolerance. I don't know what else to say, other than I hope you feel better soon. :(

God bless,

Mariann

    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
    • Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.   I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
