My Mom Glutened Me :(
0

10 posts in this topic

I've been feeling great other than the glutening I got while out of town a few weeks ago. My mom had us over for spaghetti last Friday. I took my own spaghetti noodles and cooked them. Mom says "you can drain them in this." Strainer is in the sink and I thought for a fleeting second that she drained the other noodles in it. I let it go though cause she never uses that one and I just thought she had that out special for me.

Saturday I start not feeling well. I'm thinking it's the diverticulosis acting up. I called GI doc and made an appt for today and ended up in the ER yesterday. Today I had to take my mom shopping and she asked if I got something with gluten. I said "not that I can think of. Did you rinse anything in the strainer before I put my noodles in it?" "No it was clea...oh yeah I drained the regular noodles in it." "Uhm yeah that will do it." "oh really! I had no idea it was that bad."

Grrrr! I know she doesn't suffer from it and I'm newly diagnosed so it's not like she's been dealing with it my whole life but I've explained how easily I can get sick. I just hope now she realizes how easy it is to cc. Maybe she'll be more careful! Maybe?

Oh man, that's rough :( hopefully it's a learning experience for her, but sad it was at your expense. I hope you feel better soon.

Oh, you poor thing! Sometimes people sort of get it but truly do not fully grasp all the implications. It seems they think of the food itself more than cross contamination at times.

Hopefully this glutening blows over very quickly.

I learned this lesson the hard way too. ALWAYS ask. Do not assume. I'm sorry you're feeling bad. I hope it clears up for you ASAP.

I live with my fiances family and they're not fully understanding how series it is. I've resolved to buying my own pots and pans, cutting board, utensils, etc. I even clean like crazy before I even cook. I've become a little paranoid in the kitchen now lol I can't help it though his brother leaves crumbs all over the counters, nasty dishes in the sink. Idk what else to do so I get a little OCD just to be safe. I am newly diagnosed as well and still waiting to feel a difference. Best of luck to you! Hope you feel better!

I was really sick last night. I called my GI and she said go to ER. I was vomiting and had terrible stomach cramps. The gave me fluids and meds for the pain. I'm just hanging on the couch today on the BRATT diet. It's really frustrating me cause I was feeling so good!

I'm so sorry to hear this! I'm sure your Mom must be feeling terrible about it, especially seeing you had to go to the ER. I hope you're feeling a lot better really soon.

Actually, I think the bright spot in all this is that she was curious and talking to you about it the next day and that she admitted it without any excuse or cover up. She will learn. It's those in denial and who deflect the blame or pretend it didn't happen that you have to avoid at all costs. I am sure your mom does feel bad but, even in your present pain and discomfort, joy in the fact that at some level she might be starting to get it. No one will ever see it completely as through our eyes but there are many friends who will understand more than others. If one of those friends is your mom you are lucky.

    • Hi Anns and welcome   Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?   Yes, it was smart of you to consider the possibility and its good that you've had the tests. Both the aneamia and bloating are symptoms, although of course they may be unrelated. Best way to find out is to check as you are doing.   Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?   Yes, I think its most common discovered later rather than sooner.   I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   Yes, I noticed far less of a heavy feeling after eating very soon after diet changes. However you would be better off not trying gluten free just yet. I collected some links and other stuff here, it may be of use: Your best bet is to eat as normal and wait for the test results. If your doctors eliminate celiac there's nothing to stop you excluding gluten at that point to see if it helps. But before then you need to keep eating it to ensure an accurate diagnosis.  All the best  
    • Well HIV undermines the entire immune system as I understand it, so that would be akin to using dynamite to put out a kitchen fire! There is some work going on to try and retrain the immune system to not see gluten as a threat though: http://www.immusant.com/docs/ImmusanT DDW Data Release FINAL 5.24.16.pdf  I'm laughing as I write this imagining the conversations you could have with people as you tell them you'd like to contract HIV so that you can eat a decent sandwich        
    • So, I have just yesterday had blood work done to test for Celiac so I am waiting on my results.  This was prompted when my Dr discovered that I was severely anemic and after other testing sent me to  Hematology.  I actually inquired if I could possibly have a gluten sensitive because of the anemia (which has improved with an iron supplement) and feeling bloated after eating and well most of the time actually and after some research I found that this could be a sign that of a gluten sensitivity.   The Hematology Dr also recommend an upper GI.  Do you think that I am on the right course to see if I possibly have Celiac?  Can this develope later in life ( I'm 46)?  I ate a meal last night that was gluten free and did not feel like nearly as bloated after eating, would I notice a change that quickly?  Thanksort for your input.   ANN
    • Yes, the first time you use gluten free flours, it feels like a challenge. ... of a gluten-free living after her elder kid was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. View the full article
    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
