In Topic: Accidentally Ate Gluten

29 June 2011 - 05:12 AM

I can relate completely! Hang in there. It's Wednesday and the bloating is only just starting to go down from an accidently CC from sushi on Sunday; back pain still occuring as well. Nothing's worse than realizing part way through eating something that it was wrong! :S

Interesting....but thanks for letting me know.

Maybe I'll give my system a few more weeks to continue healing and give it another try (because it's oh so good) :)

For those in Atlantic Canada, Gluten Free Chex (rice or honey) are officially available at Atlantic Superstore :D $5.49 a box (yikes) but worth the treat!

Superstore?! Really?! YAY!! I've been waiting for this! I will be on the hunt on Saturday! haha

Thanks for the update :)

Super Store (Loblaws). Believe me, I was stunned to see them. I actually got tears in my eyes because I was that astounded! :) Maybe I should go and grab 20 boxes to ensure they continue selling them here! They were not in the regular cereal section nor where they in the gluten-free section - in between those aisles at the very end (teaser aisle). At $5.99 they are far cheaper than the gluten-free cereals in our store. Another bonus!


In Topic: Eyesight Problems

Hi MickeyG,

Others with long term experience with Celiac may have more to add but here is my take on it:

I'm only newly diagnosed, however, I had been experiencing the same vision problems. Before learning of my diagnosis I couldn't understand why my vision would constantly go blurry - night time, morning - depended on the day. I was concerned and saw my optometrist who assured me that my eye sight had not changed AT ALL.

Clearly I wasn't dreaming the vision problems. Fast forward to my first meeting with my nutritionist, post diagnosis and BINGO! She confirmed that as a symptom of malnurishment, the vision problems were due to my body's (villi) inability to absorb vitamin A. So my guess is that upon reintroducing gluten into your system, your body is having a difficult time absorbing vit A....
