Glutening, Food Poisoning Or Both?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I did many things wrong in the past 48 hours. 2 days ago, i made lemon pie, i ate 1/4 of it that same night, other quarter in the morning.. i felt like it was too much but didnt feel bad,  i shared it with my family and wasn't clear enough on how to avoid cross contamination.. then i was angry, because they probably glutened my lemon pie, i really wanted to eat some more so i ate around the parts they probably touched (i ate another quarter).

 

Some hours later i started feeling terrible, that was yesterday and i still feel bad. I know both things i did were bad, i shouldnt have eaten 3/4 of that lemon pie, but it was delicious xD 

 

I dont know how to recognize my glutened symptoms, so i dont know if i was glutened, or i ate too much lemon pie (probably this is the reason) or what, but i dont feel bad enough to go to the ER. 

 

Is it normal to feel bad after eating too much lemon pie?  I feel so dumb..

If I ate that much lemon pie, I might have some issues, too.  But it tasted sooooooo good!   :D

Ha, I thought the same thing Karen did.  But mine would be pecan pie... mmmmmmm.  It really is hard to tell what the culprit is in these situations.  If you really want to be sure, you could make a 100% gluten-free lemon pie after a few weeks has passed, and see what happens when you eat half of it  ^_^  And of course, this time of year is when things like stomach bugs and such are going around, so this may be one of those times where you just never know.  In the future for pies, as long as it isn't runny, you can cut out a portion for the gluten eaters and put it in another container (or vice versa), and hide your gluten-free portion from their thieving grasp.

Laura, that's a very good idea xD i'll make another lemon pie in some weeks and see what happens, but i think it was a combination of both.. i still feel bad! it's been 2 days now.

 

I'll cut out a portion for my family and hide the rest for me xD but i think i wont eat it in a single day this time haha

I am not sure what to say except for I ate half of a bag of Nothing But Reds Starbursts the other night, but I felt fine. Some people can't handle a lot of sugar at once, might be as simple as that. It's hard not to always look at gluten as the culprit, but I'm going with the others that it was probably the quantity. Hope you feel better soon.

1/4 + 1/4 = 1/2 of the pie.   Yup, I'd feel sick too!  But I've been guilty of eating the whole darn pizza and being sick so there you have it.  My bet that it was toooo much pie.  lol :P

Could be gluten.

 

Could be too much fat.

 

Could be too much sugar.

 

Could be too much pie. 

 

Could just be a combination of any of the above ...

 

If you're still sick in a few days I would lean on the gluten side of things.  I always find that the inflammation lasts a while, whereas eating too much of a good thing will only affect me for a few hours.  YMMV, of course.

No worries on the TMI, we have all heard it all :)  It is possible that you had some cross-contamination, but unlikely.  It is always a good practice to wash your hands before eating especially if you have been out of the house.  Other gross things could have been on that finger besides gluten  :ph34r:  (This is my inner germaphobe speaking, lol).  I try to wash my hands as soon as I get to the house so anything out of the house will be left outside.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
