5 posts in this topic

Something must have got to me and now I am in question?

Thinking I have it narrowed down or do I?

Drug in Question Cefuroxime Axetil Tablets 500mg - Manufactured by Lupin Pharmaceuticals -

I called the manufacturer, there claim is that there is no gluten in there product, they were very short with me, very rude....twice now after taking this product I have had reactions...

however...

Both times I was taking this product I also consumed Tostinos Corn Chips and there Medium Salsa...

Last Time I had more running to the bathroom symptoms and stomach pain...

This Time I have stomach pain/swelling/ but very very bad joint pain/swelling/neck & back pain ... I can't seem to get comfortable my body just aches...

Anyone else experiencing symptoms with these items??

sorry you are not feeling well. I can't say why this is happening but I do know too much corn in a day & a spicy salsa can get me.. As for the med again I don't know if it contains gluten but maybe gluten in a filler , who knows.. some people have trouble the filler celluose. It could be in & is in many drugs as a filler...

get better soon

Antibiotics can cause diarrhea and stomach pain as side effects, not having anything to do with gluten.

Did you eat the chips and salsa regularly before going on the medication? If you did and were fine with it, it is most likely a side effect. If that was the first time with the chips/salsa, I'd try not eating them and see if you feel better.

My feeling is that it's the antibiotic, but you never know.

Here is the expanded description of the drug including side effects and interactions.

Take a look.

This type of thing also happened to me recently. I saw different doc for tests. The last doc, a cardiologist, made the connection to the drug I was taking. All is better.

Hang in there.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
