Aren't some hot water bottles filled with wheat?

I just can't not eat the cake. I want to have what everyone else is having :angry:

It's too late by now anyway. Usually my reactions are over within 12 hours. I don't think it would be more than 24-48 hours and we'll be flying over to Spain for the honeymoon 2 days later. Maybe I'll try and strengthen my immune system and be well rested before the day so I withstand the *attack* better. :huh:

None that I am aware of. Hot water bottles are rubber, you fill them with water. I think there might be reusable heat packs that have grain. But, they make the fillings out of other materials as well, I had one with cherry pits. You can make one and fill it with rice and dried lavender, but you'd need to be able to sew.

I live in the south and down here we usually have 2 cakes at a wedding - the traditional white wedding cake and a groom's cake that is usually chocolate. Since you've already ordered the wedding cake with gluten, do you think you could get a gluten free groom's cake and use that to eat? That way you could still have your pretty wedding cake and wouldn't have to worry about getting sick. Your piece would be sliced first, so you wouldn't have to worry about cross contamination. And you could put the cakes on two separate tables to help with the CC issue too.

Good luck! Hope you have a great wedding and honeymoon.

I'm unsure from what you've written as to whether you have eaten gluten within the past few weeks and had little reaction or whether you've been 100% gluten free since diagnoses and are judging your gluten reaction on what you felt before going gluten free. If so I'm going to have to add to the posts urging you not to eat the cake. The first time I was glutened (100% by accident) I was in the bathroom within an hour. Plus when the urge hit I had literally less than 2 minutes to get to the bathroom!!! Thank God I was so close! Then I got a terrible rash, bloating, fatigue, joint aches, and continued diarrhea for the next couple of weeks. I can assure you that that reaction was nothing like what I felt before going gluten free.

Thank you for all your replies. We got something sorted today. The whole cake will be gluten-free and will have the same design. We were referred to a retired cake decorator and baker who'd had experience in gluten-free and she said she'd be willing to do it just this once. :)

The cost will be about double that of the original, but that's ok. Great someone cares enough to do it. I'll let you know how it is.

*sighs of relief* ;)

I'm So glad for you! I bet no one will even know it's gluten-free unless you tell them!

Thanks everyone for being so supportive. The day came and it was absolutely great. I feel so guilty now for contemplating eating a normal cake.

The gluten free wedding cake was so good. We didn't even tell anyone else I'm celiac, only the venue staff knew and everything served was gluten free. :)

Had it not been for this forum I don't think we would have been convinced to make alternative plans, so once again THANK YOU!

We're on our honeymoon at the moment, and the gluten-free food offerings have been really good, too! :D

That's AWESOME! If I'd known then what I know now, I would have gone gluten free BEFORE my wedding instead of waiting until afterwards. My wedding was Sept 10 and my last day of consuming gluten was Sept 13. While my wedding day was all that I wanted it to be, I definately did not enjoy is like I could have had I felt the way I do now. Instead I had two of the WORST mouth sores I've ever had in my life, my hemrroids were HORRIBLY painful, my body ached, etc...

The honeymoon was a success! Not once was I ill. Didn't have internet for the time I was away, so just saw the replies now. Thanks so much for your support (and not just leaving it for me to do 'whatever').

I keep wondering 'what if'. I need to stop and be sensible. :unsure:

But everyone has been so accommodating and supportive. Now, hopefully I may live well on this diet.

You do need to stop and be sensible. You're not gluten intolerant where you eat wheat according to your symptoms. You're celiac and every time you eat wheat, your immune system will start attacking your body. You may not feel much but the damage adds up (as I'm sure you well know). I have thyroid autoimmunity from not being diagnosed and eating wheat for too long. There are other folks on the board with arthritis or nasty neurological damage.

Get your kitchen set up, learn to cook, and enjoy all the great gluten-free foods that we CAN eat. B)

Welcome back! Glad you had a great wedding and honeymoon. You CAN live well on this diet, and healthy is the best way for you to start your new life together! Gluten free cooking can be an interesting adventure; I made wonderful chocolate chip muffins for my family for breakfast today and my gluten-eaters LOVED them.

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      I am also IgA deficient. My doc took more blood and looked at 2-3 other markers in the blood work , transglutinase, and 2 others. My biopsy showed blunted cilia in sm intestine, but my IgA was low. He suspected Celiac due to cilia so ordered other blood tests. I also presented atypically, burny stomach and reflux...and very little else.
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      If you have Celiac Disease, and you are IgA deficient, what do they check on your labs to make sure you are not being "glutened"?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi again Richie, A lot of coeliacs have a problem with coffee, maybe you do too. It could explain the shakes you describe. I am sensitive to coffee, and haven't touched caffeine since last summer. (The detox lasted for 10 days and it wasn't pleasant, so if you ever give it up, do it gradually).  Sometimes when you're intolerant to something, when you have it, it makes you feel 'better' but it doesn't last and usually end up worse, it's like a drug - and in the case of caffeine it is. I also take a daily probiotic (gluten free and dairy free etc)., which is good for healing the gut.
    • Weird Reaction
      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.  
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      You are doing well.  We didn't have a "normal" tTG for 6 years and were also very strict.  Kiddo was dx with hypothyroid as well and tTG fell a lot after getting on meds for that but still didn't normalize.  Finally cam down within the last 6 months (this after a trip to THE Celiac Dr. several years ago).  I wish we had done a DGP much earlier and I had pushed for that sooner.  I would start there and see what happens.     Sounds like you're doing everything right though. Sometimes it just takes time.

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
