How Often Do You Check Your Numbers/How Often Do You Get Glutened

01 February 2010 - 05:11 PM

I am just wondering how often everyone checks their numbers to see how they are doing. Should it be often? every 3 months? or once a year? How often does everyone think they got glutened even though they are very careful? Is it true that every time you get glutened you reverse all the work that you've done since going gluten free? Does getting glutened cause cancer? I am sooooooooo careful and every once and a while I feel like I was glutened :( Like right now I have a sharp pain in my upper abdomen. what is that?! thanks

7 Months Gluten Free, Lactose Intolerant Now?

02 October 2009 - 06:28 AM

I have been 7 months gluten free. The past 7 months have had its up and downs. The occasional "whoops!" or the " Im not feeling right" But for the past 2 weeks I have been feeling off in my stomach. And to top it off this morning I had Diarreah. I never get that. It wasnt even a symptom of mine before I was diagnosed. A month ago my gastro told me to go lactose free for 2 weeks because I was complaining that I felt off again. Since my ttg numbers were 4, he said it couldnt be gluten so he told me to go dairy free. I never did because I didnt think that dairy ever affected me at all. Could I have become lactose intolerant this late after going gluten free? Or maybe I just have a stomach bug? This is what I ate yesterday.
Breakfast:
gluten-free corn flakes, milk, banana
Snack:
Black grapes
Lunch:
Homemade Sweet potato-peanut bisque(sweet potatos, peanut butter, extra virgin olive oil, onions, ginger, garlic, gluten free veggie broth and gluten free veggie juice)
Fresh spinach with Kraft balsamic.
orange.
Dinner:
small piece of plain chicken with pepper, small peice of steak, carrots
Dessert:
gluten-free Coconut macaroons with milk.


Now I ususally have milk everyday so to get diarreah this monring is weird. Could it have been something else? I cant think of anything else that I introduced into my diet that would be different. Maybe Im just crazy!

Frustrated

27 September 2009 - 01:17 PM

Does anyone ever experience getting glutened and not knowing where it came from?!? I wish we had a self blood tester so we could see if our numbers are up after we feel glutened so that we can narrow down what the culprit was! Anyway, I have had a headache for days and I dont know if I was glutened or Im just sick! Thats another thing I get frustrated about. Everytime I feel off I blame it on gluten but Im not even sure if thats what it is. If I had an allergy or intolerance to something else, like corn, soy, dairy, casein...whatever it may be...what it do damage like celiac, or would it just be something that happens and its my decision whether I want to deal with the side affects? Thanks for the help.

Orgran(spelling?)buckwheat Pancakes And Other Questions

18 August 2009 - 06:41 PM

So I bought Orgran(The Australian company) buckwheat pancake mix. I was very excited and they tasted great. But I felt sick a couple hours after I ate them. I let it go because quite frankly Im getting sick of freaking out about getting glutened. I had some for breakfast the next morning and a couple hours later again felt sick. So im thinking it was them?! The only other thing could be some quinoa pasta salad my mom made for me. Everything in it was gluten free. But the next day she said she wasnt sure if she used the same spoon to mix the pasta's. (she was making non gluten free pasta salad as well and used a wooden spoon for both, but she wasnt 100% sure if she did that or not.) So, ironically I had my 6 month doctors appt with my gastro yesterday for blood work to check my numbers. I explained everything to him and now hes doing a stool study on me. He always says hes not worried about me because of what he saw in my colonoscopy and endoscopy. He said everything looked perfect except for the fact that my villi were somewhat damaged to show evidence of celiac. So, sorry for all the info but im thinking, what else could it be?! grr, a little frustrated...thanks for listening!

Im Sorry For Another Question So Soon

06 June 2009 - 05:29 AM

So, As a rule I just dont drink. I dont like the taste of alcohol so I figure why drink something that I think tastes bad. So I was over a friends house last night and she made a mixed drink of some kind. And she asked me to taste it. Me not thinking at all took a little sip. I said mmm it tastes like a jolly rancer! Then I found out it had beer in it. How bad is this? you can tell me the truth I can handle it lol. I know it was irresponsible of me totally. I dont know what I was thinking. So...whats the verdict?
