In Topic: Dizziness

11 November 2006 - 12:40 PM

I have had very bad dizzines for months, but the weird thing is its only after going gluten free. i've had an mri and in a month i have some weird ear tests where they spin you around. for me the room sort of shifts which i geuss is a form of vertigo. i havent found anything that works :(

I too have had bad dizzy spells and am having one now. I have been gluten free for sometime so I am not sure if there is a correlation. I actually am going to have an mri done the week after next just to make sure it is nothing else. Hopefully that will come back fine. Its just frustrating though.

does anyone know if the ready-made kroger brand ranch dip in the refridgerated section (by the sour cream) is gluten free? what cheese sauce packets are gluten free in the mac and cheese boxes? it would be so much cheaper for me to use my own gluten-free noodles with a cheese sauce packet from another box. i also think i have heard that lipton onion soup mix is gluten-free, is this right? what about the kroger brand suasage---links and bulk?

NOt sure about the other items you mentioned but I could be wrong but I would stay away from the Lipton onion soup mix - for me I get a bad reaction bloating, gas ect ect.

I love those Alexia Fries. So sorry they made you sick :(

All of the varieties have different ingredients (i.e. dextrose, maltodextrin, autolyzed yeast extract, some even have dairy which may be an issue). I try to stick with the Yukon Gold Julienne variety because they have the least added ingredients: Yukon Gold Potatoes, Canola Oil and/or Sunflower Oil, Sea Salt.
What a find Rachel! I have tried coconut milk but every brand I've found always has something added in it like guar gum. I hope you continue to be reaction free with the coconut butter!

Hi Julie,
I am not totally convinced that it was the Alexia Fries- I had gone to Ohio to visit relatives and while there I think when I ate out at a restaurant I may have eaten something with gluten and you know how sometimes you don't get reactions for a long time...... So I am going to try to give the Yukon Gold Potatoes a try again and keep my fingers and intestines crossed :)
As with everything in life I just try to take one day at a time. One thing with celiac is everyday can be different so even though you feel crumy one day you never what tomorrow will bring.

Wow thanks everyone for the suggestions I have to go to the grocery store today and coconut oil will be on my list!

I don't know about coconut butter but organic coconut oil is good for candida, bacteria and viruses.

Really? Hmmm I wouldn't mind trying the coconut oil too but what do you use it on?

Pretty much all potatoes have sulfites...so that would include potato chips. I'm not talking about the whole potatoes in the produce dept but anything that has been "prepared"....fresh or processed. Instant mashed potatoes, all the fozen fries, stuff like that.

I cant eat the coconut because the one I have isnt organic. I was buying lots of conventional stuff as well as organic. I get more reactions from the conventional stuff so now I'm eliminating it completely for the time being. I still have the coconut sitting in a abasket on my table but if I got a reaction I wouldnt know if it was from coconut or pesticides. I never saw an organic one or I'd buy it in a second.
Anyways I'm 99% sure I only react to coconut because its desicated which always conatins sulfites.

Thanks Rachel I didn't even know that potatoes (processed or prepared) have sulfites??!! that would explain a lot of the reactions that happen when I eat gluten free french fries too. I made dinner for my Dad last week and tried the -I think its the brand Alexia french fries that are gluten free and ended up with a mouth full of sores and some bloating.
