Poisoned <sigh>

Recommended Posts

One week ago I found out I was wheat intolerant. I cut all wheat and gluten out of my diet and felt like I was on cloud 9. It was the best I felt in 6 months! I had some soup this weekend (chicken with rice) outside and I think it made me relapse. This happened on Sunday afternoon and I still have a headache, fatigue, god awful gas, foggy vision and an expanded pouch (stomach)....It this normal???????????????

I never want to touch gluten again. Although, I need to do the small biopsy which would require me to poison myself for a week.....<double sigh>

Thanks for any help. This site is terrific!

Hi Nicole,

Welcome! Glad you were feeling better, but like most of us, you've been glutened. Feeling better will vary from person to person, but I think within the next couple of days you will be there. Just drink herbal tea, eat bland foods, and drink lots of water.

Feel better soon!

Yep. Crab with a "K" is totally off limits. The other things to watch for with sushi is reconstituted wasabi can have wheat added to it. (If its not fresh and comes out of a tube thats a red flag). Some lower end sushi chains have been known to coat their seaweed with soysauce before preparing it, which makes everything that had seaweed in it off-limits, but this is rare in any real sushi establishment, more a fast-food sushi phenomenon.

The "spicy" condiments used in things like the spicy tuna can also have wheat in them, and most places don't know, so I tend not to eat those. Anything made with dashi is off-limits, which means most miso soups served in restaurants and most dynamites are off-limits as well. The good news is, besides all that there is many sushi items we can eat and I eat sushi all the time.

Your picture is very cool!

When I get glutened, it definitely lasts for a few days.

You said you need the biopsy, that is really your choice. If you want it, then get it. But, if you are having such a positive dietary response, do you really want to go back on gluten just so a test confirms what the diet already has? It is your choice, but personally, no one will ever make me eat gluten, no matter what. If you start eating gluten again you will cause more damage which will take time to heal. So, ever if you think you can take being sick for a week or so, do you really want to do more damage?

Hi Nicole--Sorry you got glutened--it happens to the best of us :D . I don't think a week is enough time on gluten to make a difference in a biopsy, when you've been completely off of it for a while. Did you find out you were gluten intolerant by blood testing? If so, that is a diagnosis right there--also, the positive response to the gluten-free diet is a valid means of diagnosis :)
