    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Was I Glutened And/or Dairy'ed?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been off gluten and dairy for about 6 months now; before that, I never really had any significant GI symptoms (mostly just eczema), although I think maybe I was starting to. Haven't been officially diagnosed with anything; a blood test for celiac was negative after 6 weeks off wheat, which after reading this forum for awhile seems like fairly useless information.

Anyway, there's this one coffee shop where I've had nausea and D two out of three times after getting a soy latte. (I've had plenty of soy lattes from other coffee shops with no reaction, so I don't *think* that this is a soy problem.) It could be coincidence: after the first time, my DH and son came down with similar symptoms the next day, so I figured it was probably a stomach virus. And then yesterday I went from there to get new tires, and started feeling queasy after sitting in the office next to the garage for an hour or so, so I thought it might be the car fumes. But then it continued to get worse over the next several hours, which seems a bit weird.

So I'm just really wondering what's going on! If I *am* getting sick from this coffee shop, why? Surely a soy latte wouldn't be gluten-contaminated, right? I can imagine that it might be dairy-contaminated if they don't clean their steamer well enough between drinks, but would a tiny amount of milk really mess me up that badly?

Part of me is almost tempted to do challenges with some of the individual foods I'm off of, just to see what foods cause which problems, but I'm really not all that interested in making myself sick on purpose! Guess I may have to spring for the Enterolab tests at some point. -sigh-

Most soymilk is gluten free, but I think there may be some with gluten. Perhaps you could call and find out what brand of soymilk they use, and check to see if it is gluten free.

Just to let you know, there are definitely soymilks with gluten and i have been glutened by them- apparently there is sometimes barley in it. Just find out what brand they use- Silk is gluten-free, Westsoy is sometimes not. Feel better!
