I've seen a study that concluded probiotics probably help some/most ppl, but there aren't any surefire treatments.

Hope it's over soon.

Unfortunately the aloe often acts as a laxative. Probably not what you want...

It depends on what your symptoms are, love.

Aloe is good for acid reflux. it soothes the throat and stomach. It's not good for diarrhea, as mentioned above. Might help slightly with constipation (?) but there are better things out there.

Eat very plain, easy to digest things now, like cooked veggies and chicken or beef broth. Take it easy, rest, supplement vitamins if you have malabsorption issues.

Otherwise, you just have to wait it out...

Hehehe looks like the aloe juice shill didn't even bother to notice the replies.

1. Create acct

2. Pretend to be a celiac making a ridiculous mistake that product X could solve- just a question of how much & how often.

3. Say it worked!!

Hmmm I got a PM from the shill protesting my judgement, but come on - his/her 2nd post quotes his/her 1st post to reply, obviously not caring what real replies were written.

Does an actual celiac in a panic about eating a slice of pizza (or two) really ignore advice in this forum? I don't mean 'read & disregard', I think he/she didn't read replies, considering one said aloe juice would make it worse.

I don't like seeing newer members/readers/lurkers being misled.

If he is trying to sell the stuff, he isn't a very good sales person. He hasn't posted a link to a brand or store to purchase. He doesn't have a link on his profile to a site selling it. If he was selling it, he would tell us how great it worked and give us a way to buy it, wouldn't he? I doubt there is a large marketing campaign for the Aloe industry like there is for milk.

Whether you or I believe Aloe juice helps with a glutening, tummy ache or male pattern baldness - there is nothing technically wrong with his post. Many people think it is soothing to the stomach. Everyone is free to present evidence they have that it is harmful, useless or helpful. You may even express, as an opinion, that you can't imagine how it could help.

More than 10 yrs ago a friend of mine worked for a couple months simply posting positive things about Pedialite, never linking to site selling it. She was just one of however many creating a positive online impression.

Posting no link is far from exculpatory.

Do ppl really think the OP's 2nd post reads like someone who even read the replies?

If so, maybe I'm wrong.

But I doubt it after re-reading the thread & PM.

I've been reading here for a while, including many threads on what to do after a glutening & don't remember anyone recommending aloe juice. I didn't just randomly doubt the OP's intentions.

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
