I am always trying to find a similar thing myself. I get the burning stomach, but it lasts longer than just a day and night. And it will go when I eat really carefully but if I get overconfident and have something like chocolate then my stomach goes off again. Not that there's anything gluten about the chocolate, just the actual chocolate itself, which is normally not a problem causes me trouble.

I try to eat carefylly by eating well cooked veggies and fruit, rice or rice bread, and fish like salmon when I'm trying to get over getting contaminated. I have recently tried out drugs like Pepcid and Tagament but I am not sure I find they do much.

I do take a supplement called DGL Licorice and drink licorice or marshmallow teas, they seem to help my stomach, by coating it before I eat. So those are thoughts. No good hard and fast way to get over it, though, unfortunately...

Be sure you check to see if a fryer is used to fry anything other than fries. Most places stick chicken strips (breaded) or onion rings (breaded) into the same fryers as the fries. As for a remedy, try immodium, or Tums, or Pepto B. Read the ingredients on Tums, though. I think some flavors have starch. How about good old 7up? Or peppermint tea (Celestial seasonings is gluten-free- It says right on the bottom of the box. Good luck.

Whenever you oder fries, you have to ask if the fryer is a "dedicated fryer". They'll probably look at you like you have three heads. Nevermind. Ask them if they cook any breaded products AT ALL...ANY>> in the fryer. This will "contaminate" your fries. Most places DO fry their breaded chicken, breaded onions, etc in the french fry oil. That could be the problem.

Thanks.

I have the Tums with flavors, and they have "Corn Starch" in them.. Is that OK?

DO NOT take Tums. They are not gluten free. They told me that they can't guarantee them to be gluten free but others were told that they actually have gluten in them.

Corn Starch is fine and would not be a problem but other ingreidents may pose a threat.

Pepto Bismol is gluten free and really works for me so that may be something to try

Hi,

The French Fries have to be cooked in a separate frying basket from other fried foods (onion rings, chicken wings, etc.)

DEFINITELY AVOID TUMS. I am still recovering from being glutened by them last Tuesday (7 days ago.) How lame is it the med you take for you stomach actually makes it worse!

I'll bet the fryer was to blame. I don't eat fries so I didn't even think of that. I hope you're feeling better.

Like everyone else, I bet it was the fries. I just wanted to add that when you order anything grilled, make sure to ask if the buns are grilled in the same place on the grill as the meat. This could be a source of contamination, too.

For my upset stomachs, I have found these Peppermint gels with fennel and ginger that are really soothing and there is a lavendar and chamomile tea that works really well. You ought to be able to find both tthese things at a health food store and maybe even the health food section of your local grocery store.

    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥    
    • New to forum! Appreciate all of the information.  I have Kaiser as many of you do.  My ttg is 1.18 (Kaiser <90), iga 31 (Kaiser <90). I have emailed my pcp in regards to where we go from here.  Is this a positive result or just a little above normal like Kaiser will tell me? I have had conflicting symptoms of some sort of inflammatory problem for 9 years.  I am almost convinced that this might be my answer. Can anyone give insight?
