Anyone have suggestions on when they do when they get glutened? I dont think ive had one yet, but its only been a little over a month, so im going to go out on a limb and say its going to happen, since i am still in the experimenting stage.... ;)

I keep a lot of Immodium, Rolaids and peppermint tea on hand. Not sure how much these things help, but my symptoms seem to go away in about 2 days.

I generally don't use anything--except if I have to go somewhere, I'll use Imodium. I just drink a lot of water and eat according to how I feel.

I'm not sure about that-- i called them a few months ago about the soft chews and the other new kind (i cant remember the name right now but they are chewable and the person i spoke to said that neither one was gluten-free-- im not sure the person i spoke to was brilliant, but ive been avoiding that kind too just in case.

my advice? dont take anything at all, let it go through your system, but drink a LOT of water and eat something if your hungry. Thats what i do, but then again, i am also scared of antacids after years of being glutened by tums and rolaids!

I drink Pepto Bismol, use one of those little pillows you heat up in the microwave and if I have it handy drink some peppermint tea. I actually find walking around helps to, but it's usually the last thing I want to do.

I'm a "Pepto Person," too. I only take it when I'm having a really bad day and then I just want to sleep.

Hope this helps......Best of Luck!

Hey Moongirl,

I noticed you are from Boston. I live on Cape Cod. Have you checked into the Healthy Villi support group?

I try to lay low and eat comfort foods when I get glutened. I drink flat ginger ale and water and I eat things in the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, tea/toast).

Hi Moongirl,

I'm also a Pepto person. Immodium does squat for me due to the collagenous colitis. For me, since I NEVER get rid of the diarrhea even when totally gluten-free, my concern is more for pain management.

I have my heating pad on low, sit on my bed crosslegged, and rock forward and backward. I close my eyes, breath in through the nose and out of the mouth, and try to get myself into kind of a trance. It really does help! And I'm not some kind of Hari Krishna wacko, honest!!! ;)

Also, I stick to the only food that does not hurt when I am glutened. Potatoes. Cooked any way, doesn't matter - as long as it is potatoes, it won't hurt me.....

Hi Moongirl,

I haven't been to a Healthy Villi meeting yet, but I may go to the one on January 29th @ Mass Bay College. There is a support group on the Cape, but the Healthy Villi seems more organized and geared toward "newbies" like myself.
