Welcome.

I'm sorry, but you have not given nearly enough information for me to answer.

How do you know what made you sick? How long have you been gluten-free? How severe was your villous atrophy? What else did you eat that might have caused a reaction? What WAS your reaction?

Your first post here provides no context or background, but questions three products generally accepted as gluten-free.

Please provide some more background so we can understand the context here.

None of your listings would cause me concern. But your history would be an important road to consider.

Some celiacs are more sensitive than others. What one eats without problems, another can't. You could go on a whole foods diet till you are better than add things one at a time to know what you can eat.

oops sorry about that psawyer, cant really think straight right now.

I don't know what made me sick, that's what i want to find out because i got sick two times in one month. To be honest im tearing up right now because i feel so sick, and so frustrated that this is happening again. I have been gluten free for about 6 months now. The doctor did not do a biopsy because of all the factors in this, long story, i did get the blood test but that along with everything else and a positive response from the gluten free diet they knew as well as i did too that this is the only thing that fits and explains all my medical problems. I was doing very well for a while and now i keep getting sick again every couple months. Now twice in a month. I swear im this close to only eating salad for the rest of my life.

Everything i have eaten:

udi's cinnamon raisin bread

udi's whole grain bread

udi's pizza crust

bertolli olive oil (every time i ate this i felt nauseas afterward)

starkist tuna in water, the blue and silver can

tazo tea, stash tea, twinings tea, and once i had this cold and flu tea but it is supposed to be gluten-free

jif peanut butter

nutella

plain rice

mccormick salt

mccormick basil

I only have gluten free pots pans toaster dishes etc so its not that either. ugh i feel like barfing.

my main problem is severe nausea, I am so queasy its unbearable. Brain fog and depression also. So basically I just feel very very ill, and brain fog, i am extremely pale and sick looking and am losing weight.

There is no fruits or veggies, not much fiber. Lots of processed stuff. Even the good gluten-free stuff has a lot of sometimes, odd ingredients. What if you tried a less processed food diet. Chicken, rice, cooked veggies?

I see you are eating a lot of Udi's. Not everyone can tolerate that much xanthan gum.

Dairy was getting me and I thought it was hidden gluten for the longest time. I got sick after a party where I had wine, grapes, and cheese and blamed it on the wine, then on cracker crumb CC when challenged wine and it was OK. :lol: (Yes, I was in denial. I love cheese.) I am also finding that I react to tomatoes. What I thought was a reaction to shared fryer CC when I ate french fries is actually a reaction to ketsup I put on the fries.

I'd suggest starting a food/symptom diary and looking for patterns, particularly what you ate the two days before one of your reactions. Pay particularly close attention to dairy and soy.

From that list you have eaten eggs, soy, and nuts. 3 offerings from the top 8 allergens. Keep a food journal to see if you can track down another intolerance. Keep in mind some reactions can cause damage for 12 days. :huh:

Try the whole foods and leave out the processed ones. Also can tuna contains broth, was the mayo cross contaminated? You never know what is in that broth the only safe broth is the ones labeled gluten free and trust me the tuna can does not say gluten-free. Hope you find what bit you.

Your diet is missing fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, fish and nuts and eggs. :blink:

You are losing weight, hon because you are not getting enough protein!

If you are eating butter and using cheese on that pizza crust--you may have a dairy intolerance.

There is so much going on it COULD be, rather than any "suspect" product.

Eat plain foods for a week or so and see if you feel better.

This means meat, fish, vegs, fruit, nuts, eggs. No gluten-free products from packages, nothing from a can. Plain and simple.

Do you take probiotics? It might help straighten out your gut.

Just some suggestions.

Meat and vegetables will or should heal you.

I get nauseous from too much gluten free stuff like Udi's even if it is safe for us. I don't know if it is Xanthan gum or what. I love Udi's and keep it around for snacks and treats...but it remains just that...snacks and treats. For my main healing food I eat meat and vegetables. Some fruit and nuts for dessert. Good luck to you. I know how much it sucks to be so sick that you really don't feel like cooking and you really cannot think straight. It was bad. Fortunately everybody who said eat whole foods is right. It gets better. Make soups out of meat and veggies or chicken and veggies. If you are really nauseous and having trouble eating, puree your meat and veggies or soup and get it in that way. Raw vegetables are sometimes really hard on your digestive system until you heal. In the end I had to give up dairy and eggs too because they make me sick. You will have to find out what the culprit is, but the only way is to eat clean for a while and then test the foods you suspect. Hope you feel better soon.

    • So I've been glutened....
      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Coffee is a no-no for me!  I actually gave up coffee since my diagnosis back on 2/2016.  I was diagnosed by a biopsy in the stomach...no villi.   Coffee is a stimulant to the GI system and it really irritates your GI when you are having a flare up.  I was tested by stools and was informed I barely had good bacteria in my gut which is typically for people with celiac. I went on a high dose of probiotic (just started) twice a day, multivitamin, lots of fermented vegetables like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso soup and tons of bone broth.  I am going to a local farm today to pick up organic bones to make my broth.  I am so desperate to heal my gut, not to introduce gluten but to be able to tolerate an exposure without being knocked out by it....Eat very light, I stick to vegetable juice, resistance starch food such as banana, apples, potatoes boiled until my diarrhea subsides.  I am currently in a flare up stage; did something and I have been glutened I am on day 7 and my symptoms peak after a few days, around day 4-5 and it last a few days of Diarrhea, nausea, sensation of feeling full, back pain in the rib cage on left side and hip/lower back pain on left side.  Its horrible!  I feel weak right now due to the diarrhea and since I am not hungry it makes it worse.  Hope this gets better.
    • DNA Testing
      I got the print out and took it to my new dr because what my RA was saying didn't seem to add up.  When I pressed him for more info, he said I didn't have any of the markers. Turns out he read the test wrong!  Since then, my new doc also questioned all my previous bloodwork and asked why I hadn't been told that my counts were really low or tested for ferritin levels. My ferritin was at 10, so, yeah, 4 other Dr's missed anemia on my labs. It's been frustrating to say the least, but I am finally feeling a little bit hopeful with my new primary doc. She's just referred me to a specialist focusing on celiac. Considering my former gp told me "that whole celiac thing is just a fad", I'm feeling a bit more secure. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      Thanks for the kind responses  Last night I went out and had a black coffee, non decaf.   Big mistake... I started getting gas almost immediately and it went on for the rest of the evening. It seems like anything which might annoy my stomach at the moment results in churning and an uncomfortable feeling. the weird thing is that I ate a huge lunch including gluten-free bread earlier with no effects whatsoever. Just as well as I couldn't face food last night and am not enthused with breakfast now.  C i think I'll dig out some probiotics and try and eat simply for a few days and hope things settle down. I'm just worried that something has changed and this is the new normal... That would suck...  
    • Toblerone
      It's on the safe list here in the uk and I eat it without a problem. theres also a really nice almondy toblerone cake available now.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
