Yes. After trying mayny different things, I have come to realize it's the carmel coloring in soda. Yes, it causes me leg cramps and makes me hurt almost all over. I am so senitive now that diet soda is a no go too. Sure do miss a diet Pepsi.

That does not mean there is gluten in the soda. You can certainly react to an ingredient.

It doesn't look to me like she said that it was gluten. She just said that she reacts to carmel coloring.

That could be the reason for a reaction to carmel color.

My son 7yo and I both are celiac. My older son wanted me to stop at tacobell and get an application for work. So I thought I'd just get us all a drink. (I'm very strict to stay away from gluten but still new at it). Within 15 min cramps and D hit me. And about 5min later it hit my son who was curled up on floor crying with belly aches. My question ...is there gluten in the glues of the cups? Cross contamination? Since it was both of us I'd think it was gluten and not other allergies.

Hi - I recognize that this is an older thread but saw your post about the cup.  I was at a convention this past weekend and got a cup of coffee with cream in one of those paper cups.  Oh my goodness - I got VERY sick.  Immediately.  For awhile I thought there must have been something in the coffee or the machine wasn't washed properly....but that would be so very far fetched.  Anyway - after I stumbled across your post here, I think it probably was the cup!  I never thought of that.  Will have to do some research on that.

Gluten is not. Common ingredient in cheap glues these days. Partially because it would be expensive and because it wouldn't be water proof.

People always mistakenly assume there is gluten in glue.  Nope. Not in stamps, not on envelopes. not on toilet tissue rolls and not on paper cups.

 

something made you  sick, I do not doubt it, but gluten in adhesives is a myth.

 

Read this, please--it explains it very well.

I think I even react to carbonated water.  I left root beer and coke behind a couple decades ago.  I like to make smoothies with coconut milk and frozen fruit.  Oh, I put in a little of home-grown honey if I feel like it.  Tonight's was fresh raspberry and it was delicious!  I wasn't even sad seeing someone else having ice cream.  Mine tasted better!

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
