How long have you been gluten free? In the early stages it is best to be dairy feel as well. I have been gluten free for a year and a half and now learning that dairy is an issue.

Dairy is difficult to absorb in the early stages of going gluen free.

Not familiar with you scrib, but is is gluten free and perhaps dairy.

I had some egg for breakfast for the first time in months. (Yes, I know I shouldn't! but I wanted to have a nice normal restaurant breakfast with my partner. :( ) I had horrible D about 30 min later. If I were you I'd eliminate all those from your diet for a few weeks, then re-introduce one at a time and write down your responses.

Best wishes


Gluten intolerant - self diagnosed 2007 (not willing to do gluten challenge) and anemic

no dairy, soy, legumes, eggs, sugar, chocolate

no baked and processed foods (also gluten-free bakery) and high GI (due to hypoglycemia)

enjoy brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa and polenta instead

neurological symptoms flare up when glutened and in times of stress

following paleo diet, lots of raw fruit and veg, omega 3 oils, nuts

I feel heathy and able to function for the first time in my life. Thank God.

Organic food gives a great advantage.

Dear momof4insc,

It could have been the dairy, or your medicine. Some people have reported Tostitos making them sick. Cross contamination can be an issue, some members have said. I ate some and now I hurt, but I had my gallbladder out, so anything fried is bad. I pigged out, and now all that fat is hurting me. As long as I eat a little I am fine, but I have overdone it. :(

Dairy is a common problem for many people. I am going off of it to see if I feel better. I was doing a lot better the first two months. I have been glutened like once a week lately because of my careless parents. It is like the seriousness of this does not concern them at all.

To check your med, call your pharmacy. Have the pharmacist look it up. If they do not know, look on the Internet. You should be able to find out. If you still cannot find anything on it, calling the manufacturer's number Monday is your best bet.

The other possibility is you are getting cross contaminated accidentally from your own house.

Make sure you have pans that were not used for gluten loaded foods in the past. The scratches can hide gluten and make you sick when you cook with them. Utensils are another problem. Get new ones.

The dishwasher usually corrects this, but it is not worth risking when you are as sensitive as me.

Your cosmetics and shampoos, etc. are another possible source of danger. Many times, we forget these things. If you like, I would be more than happy to send you a list of safe soaps, detergents, and household items and beauty aids that we are allowed to use. This is daunting. It is impossible not to forget about something.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Here are my ideas... Is your prescription gluten free (some aren't)? Did anyone else dip anything else into the sour cream or salsa. Tostitos could be a very likely source of CC. Did anyone else eat them while eating a sandwich or pretzels? Plus, Tostitos, while being naturally gluten free, are not gauranteed to be gluten free (CC). Do you have gluten eaters in your house? Are there crumbs on your counters?

Always check the sour cream....too many manufacturers put in modified food starch(~ gluten here in the USA) in sour cream. It is nearly always in the little take out individual sour creams.

In the US, when modified food starch is listed, by law they are required to list, if wheat is an ingredient.

It is infrequent that MFS would be derived by wheat, but yes the undeclared possibilities.

Ah, yes,my bad . :P There are the new federal laws, but some products are still on shelves that were pre-Jan1,2006. So please be aware of the potential for hidden wheat in MFS.

i should hope you're not eating sour cream that was on the shelves before jan 2006! if that's the case, i'd say any resulting sickness would be from the over a year old rotten sour cream, not from modified food starch! ;)

HA!! Gave me a good chuckle! We do push the date expiration on a few products, but sour cream hasn't been one of them! We usually eat Daisy sour cream by the bucket from Costco!! :D
