What Could It Be? Pirate Booty? Gator Aid Or Vitamin Water?

10 posts in this topic

Has anyone had an issue with Pirates Booty? I had some today and have no idea what the cause is of frequent painful poop.

I hate those days when you just have no idea. I hate popping the imodium when you don't know what the cause is. Pirate booty has corn in it. Could I be sensitive to it. I also had gator aide and vitamin water. Any ideas on that? :angry: So bummed.I post every few months when I have the issue.

I'd have to point 1st at the Pirate. Some pretty long ingred lists on some of those. The 'nutritional yeast' in some would get me, and the soy flour in the veggie one. Remember which flavor?

I have had this type of problem before. What I learned to cope with it is to only try one new thing at a time. I try to only do one new thing per week. It can sometimes take that long for a low level reaction to become evident. That way I know what it most likely to have caused my problem. For a really super sensitive celiac, it could be any or all of those. I'm sorry you got hit. I hope that you feel better soon.

Yep, could be any of the three. I got hit once by Vitamin water so I don't drink it anymore. Not sure why though, not really thinking ti was gluten but something else in it. I am not interested enough in drinking vitamin water to try and figure it out. I just got one a on a hot day to cool off. But never again.

over abundance of vitamin B12 (vitamin water) can cause "D".

What food dye was used in the gator aid? Food dyes cause me grief more times than I care to remember. (both red and blue even if they are gluten free) :ph34r: :ph34r:

keep a food journal to see if there is a link to a certain ingredient or if it is a cross-contamination issue.

I confirmed with myself that I can't handle Pirate's Booty.

I have also confirmed with myself that gatorade is fine for me, but powerade is a no-no.

I don't do the vitamin water drinks, they often have artificial sweeteners which I can't do.

EDIT.... Today, my total intake had been a banana before the gym, a lot of water, a gatorade frost purple after the gym, and 2 hard boiled eggs after the gym. I took a nap and woke up sore and bloated.

The only thing I can assume is the gatorade, even though I had a few of them over the past 2 weeks. Nothing else I ingested could have got me.

Gatorade and I hate each other, it's a mutual feeling I've decided. 😜

Caselynn,

Can you tell me anything specific about your reaction to gatorade? Today's reaction must have been gatorade, which had been ok before. Today's reaction for me is not as severe as glutening, but there is no doubt I have joint pain, bloating, and constipation. Also, my body seems to be running hotter than when I'm perfectly clean.

There is an awfully lot of sugar in Vitamin Water, and it is in the form of crystalline fructose. There is some discussion out in the interwebz suggesting that this form of fructose is actually worse than high fructose corn syrup.

Did your vitamin water have erythritol added? That is also a sweetener, and after drinking vitamin water for days to combat dehydration, I realized i was getting sick (cramps, diarrhea) every day, and when I quit the vitamin water the pain and D stopped.

Google it...erythritol is notorious for causing this kind of trouble. Other sugar alcohols can do the same (mannitol, xylitol, etc.)

That I can! Gatorade makes me feel like I've been hit by a truck. Bloating, dull gut ache and all around lethargy. It also burns my throat, I don't honestly think its a gluten thing, but we quite obviously don't mesh lol I really don't like artificial sweeteners all that much, and I wonder if that is my problem. So I just don't drink it and very seldom do I drink something of that nature anymore, just gotten away from it I guess. Powerade doesn't do it to me though, so who knows...I would think their ingredients would be rather similar....

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
