Was It The Beef?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I went out to my favorite Thai place on Thursday nite. I've been there at least five times with no gastrointenstinal incidents. I had the same thing I usually get except for they had filets. So I got a filet instead of the normal chicken.

Usually when I get glutened it hits me by the end of the meal and it lasts about three days. I was fine after the meal - it wasn't until the next morning that it hit me. Then I had vomiting, cramping, headache, fatigue along with shards of glass lodged in my intestinal lining.

I felt like that most of Friday, but by Friday nite the bulk of the intestinal stuff was gone.

So, I'm thinking it wasn't gluten because it would've lasted longer and it would've come on sooner. could it have been the beef? I haven't eaten any beef for over 6 weeks. and I know that it's a bit hard to digest.

Or it could just be my body being angry at me. After the elimination diet failed, I fell off the casein wagon into a delicious land of cheese. My stomach has NOT been happy with me...maybe eating out just pushed it over the edge?

I go see a *comprehensive* doctor in about a week and she's going to tell me i must hop back onto the casein train and end the vacation. So I'm living it up a bit more than I normally would. :rolleyes:

Thoughts?

My guess is that it probably is gluten, because you ate out. My gluten reactions vary...from almost right away, to hours later, and have different symptoms sometimes. Mine ususally hit really hard really fast.... but, I went out to eat (and I NEVER eat out because I am so sensitive) this week at a "safe" place....hours later I felt it and am still dealing with it.

If you had eaten at home...that would be a different story. But because you ate out, even though you have eaten there safely before (which is not necessarily a guarantee of further success, unfortunately :(), I would be inclined to think it is gluten.

I hope you feel better!

I just got over a stomach virus (mostly over) and it sounds a lot like your symptoms. These suckers are going around now and they're highly contagious! Whole cruise ships full of people get hit with them. Just about everyone that was at my Thanksgiving dinner has come down with it, my neices's husband probably gave it to us all.

I had vomiting, chills and muscle aches. The next day I was just nauseous and had a terrible headache. I haven't had much appetite for the entire week afterwards.

What are the symptoms?

When you have stomach flu, you may have one or more of the following symptoms:

* nausea

* vomiting

* stomach cramps

* diarrhea

* mild fever

* fatigue

* chills

* loss of appetite

* muscle aches.

The illness may develop over a period of hours, or it may suddenly start with stomach cramps, vomiting, or diarrhea.

How was the beef flavored? Did they use teriyaki? Soy sauce anywhere? Even if the restaraunt itself didn't use soy sauce somewhere, beef is now processed with flavor enhancers and such to make it more tender and flavorfull. And who know WHAT is in that solution. (saw it on Food channel or Discovery. Can't remember which). And yes, the reactions to gluten can very in a person. Usually mine is delayed, but once I did have an immediate reaction.

Hope it passes quickly.

Weird...I mean it definately felt VERY much like I was glutened, but I'm fine now. I've never had one pass so quickly. Plus the reaction was so delayed. So between those two things, I kind of ruled gluten out.

Maybe I'll make something with ground beef in it for dinner tonite and see if anything happens.

Mmmm...tacos with cheese :D and sour cream :D before my dairy vacation comes to a screeching halt!

Sounds like either a stomach flu, or - quite honestly - a mild case of food poisoning. No, in the case of mild cases of food poisoning, other people do not have to have gotten sick - it depends on how well your body fights it off. But it could also be the dairy catching up to you. If it's fairly significantly out of your gluten pattern (timing was, you say), then I wouldn't be in a rush to suspect gluten.

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    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.
