Glutened By gluten-free Museli?!?!

04 May 2009 - 07:32 AM

So one of my favourite snacks during the day is yohgurt and gluten-free museli, i have it nearly every day...

Something weird happened today though, about 2 mins after eating it i got all the symptoms of being glutened; headache, fatigue, gas and d. The museli is def gluten-free so the only other poss thing it could have been was the lactose in the yoghurt.

ive been drinking soy milk instead of normal milk to eliminate any reaction to lactose other than yoghurt (apparently it has good antibodies that lactose-free people can tolerate). I know i havent cross-contaminated either because i am the only cook and i obviously dont have gluten in the kitchen...

Can anyone share any experiences they've had with feeling glutened even though they havent eaten anything bad? or perhaps experiences with lactose allergies??

Ta!!

Very Encouraged

Hi All!!

Well today is day 16 of my month long gluten-free challenge (as suggested by my GP) and things are looking realy good!! I have seen a very positive improvement in my BM's, bloating and stomach pain. The added bonus is that i feel like i have a more consistent mood and energy level - something i wasnt expecting. Whlst im only half way there, if things continue to improve the way they have been then i think i will be committing to gluten free for life... but will still give it another 2 weeks.

Something else i love is the challenge of cooking gluten-free food, there are so many creative ways to go about it, and i am cooking far more yummy things now than i was before this challenge!

Just one quick question... i am going to a Thai restaurant today and am wondering if anyone knows of any particular Thai menu items that generally are free from gluten??

Thanks for reading!

No Period

21 April 2009 - 05:04 PM

Hi people,

I have been trying to find some info regarding amenorhea and celiacs, and havent been overly successful...

i havent had my period for an entire year, i have been tested for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome which i dont have thankfully. the only other possibility the docs have given me is that i am underweight or have a low body fat percentage. I am currently 58kgs and 175cm tall so im actually not that underweight.

i have been on the gluten-free diet for about 3 weeks now and am starting to acknowledge a whole bunch of symptoms that may be related to celiac disease and was wondering if anyone can shed some light on the existence of amenorrhea in those who are celiac...

Ta,

Frustrated!

17 April 2009 - 05:09 PM

I decided to go gluten-free after my mum was told she was gluten-intolerant. we both have IBS related synptoms. the worst for me is the gas and bloating, sometimes its soo bad i cant stand up.

anyway, i've been gluten-free for 2 weeks today (have prob stuffed up two or three times tho). i felt pretty good for the first week and a half, but the last two days have been horrible. ive had shocking gas, diarrhea and bloating but am fairly confident i havent had any gluten.

i really just want an answer, im happy to give up anything in order for these symptoms to go away! ive also eliminated lactose from my diet to see if that is also a problem. i know that other foods can cause gas (such as beans and brocolli) but the severity of my symptoms suggests it was more than just a few gas-causing foods...

so how long should it take to see improvements if it is gluten that is causing these symptoms?

should i assume by now that im not gluten-intolerant if the symptoms came on without me eating anything bad??

definately appreciate any help or answers!!

Blood Test Negative

15 April 2009 - 02:11 AM

Hey everyone!

I've been looking into going gluten-free after my mum was told by a naturopath that she cant tolerate gluten. i have a lot of the symptoms of celiacs; mainly gas, bloating and irregular bowel movements.

so i've been gluten free for just over a week and went and got a blood test, got the results back today and it said "unlikely to have coeliacs"

so now im not sure what to do... ive noticed some improvement in my gut since ive restriced my gluten intake. just wondering if anyone else has opted to go gluten-free even if the docs have said they dont have celiacs??
