How To Deal With Celiacs When Youve Been Exposed To It The Next Day?
0

4 posts in this topic

Hi my girlfriend has celiacs disease and she is always cautious about what she eats. Last night we were out and she thinks she might have ate something with gluten in it. This morning she has been sick and have vomited about 10 times, not sever vomiting but she has got up to go to the bathroom to spit something out. What are some things we can do to treat this? We dont want to go to a hospital just yet because that can be expensive and she's not sure if she did eat something with gluten or was it more or less what she was drinking last night. We had margaritas and the waiter said they were gluten free but we are starting to think they werent.

Thanks,

-Chris

I'm sorry to hear that your gluten-free has probably glutened herself. That's an awful feeling.

I'm curious about the Margaritas too. I've been told they're gluten free, but have felt bad afterward.

Get some apple cider vinegar (braggs organic) and have her drink a teaspoon in a glass of water. Hot baths with epsom salts too. The acv will either help her vomit it all up, or settle her stomach. Either way, she will feel better. She can take it as often as needed. The epsom salts will help detox from the gluten. I wouldn't bother with the hospital. They won't know much about celiac, and they won't be able to do much to help her. Unfortunately, the only way to get thru a glutening is to let it work its way out of her system. She could be feeling "off" for up to 2 weeks.

Probably not gluten from the Margaritas. Did she eat chips? Food at this place? That is your most likely gluten. Could have nothng to do with gluten, its hard to tell. I find the acid in Margaritas or lemonade, etc sometimes hurts my stomach. Food poisoning? My 16 yr old son (not Celiac) came home from school early today with a stomach bug thats going around.

Not much you can do. You can treat the symptoms with things like Pepto Bismol or tylenol. Drink lots of water. Eat lightly if possible. I find some yogurt helps and you can sneak it into your stomach a small spoonfull now another in 15 minutes. Popciscles and ice chips to keep hydrated if still vomiting.

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
