Glutened Myself By Mistake Wow My Bodies Response!
Posted 28 January 2012 - 03:20 PM
I am mad at myself but I am a cup half full girl. SO now I know. I have learned a valuable lesson I must read and read the labels and make sure I get the right gorceries.
I must admit I am in shock and cannot believe it. I was truly skeptical this was my problem and it was my Dr who thinks this is what I have wrong. SHE IS right.
I would much rather know this is what is wrong with me than what I had my mind believing. I thought cancer or something horrible (thyroid cancer survivor) as the pain was so bad. To find out it is wheat is truly okay with me.
I enjoy all your posts and am so glad to have found you all
Katie who is withdrawing again SIGH.

At least you get symptoms when you get glutened so you know something "got you"?
Drink a lot of water to help flush out your system.

It's nice to have a first hand confirmation eh? Your body knows what it doesn't like, and it sure let you know too. My reactions seemed more noticeable after I had been gluten-free for a while. A few crumbs seemed silly worry about for to me at first but then I found out they do matter.
Yep, label reading is an easy thing to miss at first. Or even later. It's something we get used to doing after a while. Kind of a habit. The good kind though. What's tricky is when you have used product for a while and the change the ingredients. So a safe product becomes unsafe. Then you really have to be reading labels or ouchy. :~)

I cannot wait to hear about my blood test. If it is negative I will know that I am indeed Gluten Intolerant.
It is nice to have a place to read and learn and to ask questions.
Have a great day

If you're stumped, ask on the board. We can probably help you.
Thanks for the responses everyone. This is totally new to me and what a learning experience. I am will definitley be more aware of packages and ingredients when I shop. Though some products do stump me!
You found the forbidden ingredient list on the main site, right?
There is also a safe ingredient list.
