Recently Diagnosed, Need Help With Some Food Questions!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I was diagnosed with Celiacs like 2 weeks ago, but been suspecting it for couple of weeks before that, while testing.

Now that my doc and I am sure of my diagnose, I really need to make somekind of diet to keep me in shape since im working out in the gym a lot and I lost like 6 kilos so far, after going gluten free :(. I also have no vili left, so i need to keep my weight somehow...

And here in Bulgaria, there is not much stuff about the desease which can help me out, including labels on foods etc.

I would love if someone more experienced and into things answer these questions

 

 

1. I need a gluten free protein, for recovery after workouts. So i contacted most manufactures and the ones who told me their products are gluten free are OLIMP -SPORT. (Croatian brand). But when i check the ingrediends list of the gainer powder,  I saw some ingrediends like dextrose, which I belive might be gluten or am i wrong?

Ingredients are : maltodextrins, dextrose,whey protein concentrate,micellar casein,ultrafiltrated egg protein, malic acid,xanthan gym, carboxy methyl celulose.

Are any of these dangerous for Celiacs, since its really important for me to take some kind of gainer every day :(

 

 

 

2. Are TOBLERONE bars 100 % gluten free, since I really need to eat some kind of chocolate between meals and Lindtt cocoa ones turned out to have cross contamination or whatever.

 

3. I decided to drink loads of juices to keep me well energyzed also, but now i see "glucose-fructoze" in the ingredients of most. Is that dangerous for Celiacs?

 

4. Cheese. Can I eat cheese or its not safe? LIke balkan white cheese is the one we have here.  Like this one :

https://www.google.bg/search?q=balkan+white+cheese&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.50952593,d.bGE,pv.xjs.s.en_US.epv7Gxs5zsU.O&biw=1600&bih=757&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=bg&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=ZUwTUv-SLceThgfNsIC4CQ#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=_udZuzYU15BH2M%3A%3Bs-oKplbU-KkWMM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Ffoodcommodities.nl%252Fcommodities%252Ffeta%252520cheese.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Ffoodcommodities.nl%252Fcommodities%252Fforeigncheeses-varieties.html%3B799%3B599

 

5. Ice cream. Since all the gluten free brands i find in the internet are like different here in my country, what kind of icecream i can trust that is full gluten free or something.

 

6. how to help my vili recover faster. I read that Glutamine helps recovery, but what else? Because I do not want to lose anymore weight.

 

Any tips from someone who workouts with Celiac Desease would be awesome also.

 

Cheers and hope u guys can help me with most of this stuff, because im really frustrated.

Before the diagnose I had a perfect body, but I felt bad inside and tired all the time i guess because i was eating gluten.

Now that im going gluten free, I lost all ive worked out for years, but at least im starting to feel better a bit as health.

I only know what the labeling laws are in the US.  So I'm answering from that perspective.

 

Cheese should be safe.  I haven't seen any with gluten except for a few gourmet cheeses made with beer.  Perhaps you could call a company that makes the type of cheese you are talking about and ask.  However, if your villi are severely damaged, it will be hard to digest dairy products.  It might help to wait 6 months or more, until you heal to try dairy products.

 

Glucose and fructose are just sugars.  They should be gluten free. 

 

For most foods, I just read the ingredients.  In the US, if its made from wheat it will be labeled.

Hello, and welcome to the board.

Glucose, like all sugars, is highly refined and is considered safe regardless of the source.

Shelley Case, RD, is a source I trust completely on these issues. In her book, Gluten-Free Diet A Comprehensive Resource Guide, she lists as gluten-free and safe for celiacs:

Dextrose;

Fructose;

Glucose;

Glucose syrup;

Lactose;

Maltose;

Sucrose.

The Canadian Celiac Association also lists all of the above sugars as safe.

Make your own decision. As I said, I trust Shelley Case.

 

 

This is an explanation from another thread that might be helpful.

OP, most if not all recovery protein products that are whey are already gluten free as far as I know.

 

 

thanks mate.

Well i just checked the ingredients of the gainer which i take to maintain my weight and they are as follows:

-maltodextrins

-dextrose

-whey protein concentrate (whey??)

-micellar casein

-ultrafiltrated egg protein

 

The company claimed the product is gluten free, should i trust them and continue taking it on everyday routine, or some of those might be dangerous for Celiacs?

thanks.

 

Also i just read, that old fans and stuff are almost impossible to clear from gluten traces, so i need to buy brand new ones or?

whey & casein are milk.  If they say Gluten free, they likely are.

 

I don't understand about fans.  Did you mean pans? :D

 

Have you read this thread for People new to Celiac:

In the US, I have never seen a toothpaste with gluten.  The shampoo and lotions are just because they can get in your mouth.  If you don't think you will get them in your mouth, don't worry about it.  I don't worry about sun lotions because I don't get them in my mouth.  I haven't seen any with anything obviously wheat.  You could find wheat germ oil maybe.   I have seen wheat germ oil in shampoos and lotions occasionally.

thanks kareng for all ur replyes.

i decided to follow this SCD *strict carbohydrate diet"or whatever, which eliminates even more stuff than gluten, but makes ur guts heal faster, because u do not feed the bacteria in it with sugars etc.

Hope it helps me get my weight back fast enough...
