Substitute For Pretzels To Help With Nausea
0

14 posts in this topic

I'm just starting a gluten-free diet and realized I need to find a good substitute for the pretzels I use when I get hit with nausea. This usually only happens in the mornings after I take my meds that have to be on an empty stomach - I get hit with a wave of nausea and if I don't eat a few pretzels and sip some Coke or Sprite, I will throw up. :(

I think it's the blandness and saltiness of the pretzels that helps. What would a good substitute be?

Snyder's of Hanover make REALLY good gluten free pretzels that taste just like gluten ones! Even my family can't tell the difference. Glutino also makes pretzels but I haven't tried those. You could also try glutino's table crackers which are kind of like saltines or their round crackers which are kind of like ritz.

I highly recommend the Snyder's pretzels though because they're almost identical to regular pretzels.

We like Rice Chex when our stomachs are upset but need a little something. What about applesauce? Some meds you can take with it. Ask your doc or the company that makes them.

I like the Glutino pretzels very much, my family fights me for them ( :ph34r: )

and I also like the ones that come in little bags- Wylde? I forget, anyhoo,

the round crackers from Glutino are also very good.

Wow, thanks so much for the responses!! I didn't even realize they had gluten-free pretzels (just getting started with this)! Guess I need to keep reading. I've been reading non-stop since Sunday when this first came to my attention that it might be my problem for so long, but boy do I have a lot to learn!

Glutino and Ener-g have gluten-free pretzels that are very good. I can get them at larger regular grocery stores, and of course Whole Foods. Bananas, baked or mashed potatoes, gluten-free toast, and peppermint/plain tea are all helpful to me when my stomach is upset.

Would Walmart carry the Snyder's pretzels?

Some might. The ones around here have the gluten free stuff together and you have to look for it. I have seen the Snyders with the regular pretzels, too.

The Glutino pretzels are good. I have also found that Snyder's makes a gluten-free pretzel and they are awesome and I usually don't like pretzels at all. I just made a whole batch of the pretzel with Hershey Kiss and M n M on top for Christmas. they are yummy and best of all--gluten-free!!! Yeah!!!

I can second this... In fact I'm eating them right now :D I'm on a trip overseas and they ordered pizza for lunch. I had packed my gluten-free pretzels and some Lara Bars thankfully. My family loves the Snyders too, but I don't share LOL

I find this thread interesting...with each pregnancy - long before I was dx'd I could only keep "oatzels" down -- they don't sell them anymore to my knowledge.

Our family likes glutino pretzels very much, but have heard many times Snyder's are the best.

The glutino pretzels are good and also there are quite a few good rice crackers that are great for the belly.

Have you ever tried crystallized ginger? That almost always helps my nausea.

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
