Which Food Made Me Sick?

11 posts in this topic

I got super sick yesterday. All I ate that was different were 3 things.At about 1:00. I had 2 Kinnickinick oreo cookies, gluten-free, then at about 4:45 I had a quaker rice cake that had the cheese powder on it. I also had a low fat Baby Bell Cheese. At 5:00 it all exploded and I took 7 imodium to make it stop. I had to drive my little one a half hour down the freeway a half hour later. We stopped once. It was miserable. Today I still haven't gone, but I'm not exploding. So what do you think it was? I hate not knowing. I'm thinking about returing the cheese and cookies.

It might be the Quaker rice cakes. I got hit bad by those a few months back.

I don't think all of the Quaker rice cakes are gluten-free. I can't say for sure since we never buy them. Used to be they were not but then they did come out with some gluten-free ones. I would check to see if yours say gluten-free on them.

The quaker bag says gluten free on it. Do you think there is something in the lowfat babybell or is there a fat or something I'm sensitive to in those cookies? Kinnikinnick doughnuts make me sick too. So I'm wondering if the same ingredient is in this kind of oreo like chocolate cookie. Anyone have some insight? Do you think the quaker gluten free cracker got cross contaminated somewhere? I'll stick with the plain ones I get and never get sick.

i'd say it was the cookies if their donuts have set you off before.

I try to only have one new thing per week so that I can know what got me. Based on my reading of others' reactions, I'd guess Quaker. I can't eat any of those.

If it's actually gluten that caused the reaction, Quaker would be my top and only suspect. Kinnikinnick is very dependable and the cheese is highly unlikely to come in contact with gluten.

If it was something else, who knows? You'd have to figure that one out.

I vote for the rice cakes. I stopped buying them too.

(It would be nice to know if some companies take the time to read our discussions!)

I agree with Richard that Kinnikinnick is super reliable. But something in the doughnuts makes me sick, perhaps not gluten. But it gives me the runs. So maybe that same ingredient was in the cookies. I've eaten these rice cakes before with out issue. There are so many ingredients that it is hard to believe that something in there did not make me sick. I can eat garlic in moveration, but even the onion powder has me wondering. Yes I need to stick to the only one new thing rule. I think someone else will finish the cheese and rice cakes. I returned the cookies. I'm baffled that I can eat the grahm Kinnikinnick cookies no problem.

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
