Hebrew National Hotdogs, gluten-free?

Recommended Posts

ARe hewbrew national hotdogs gluten-free? I read the label and thought they were, but not sure? Also, my husband and daughter are on a gluten-free diet. He says that since he has gone gluten-free he feels like he is more sensitive than ever to gluten, has anyone else had this experience? also, my daughter is taking swimming lessons and both days so far after she has a belly sticking way out and uncomfortable, she did go to a bday party on saturday and have cake with gluten, that was 2-3 days ago, could it be this? I thought maybe she was swallowing air when going underwater or swallowing water. This is puzzling me.

The hot dogs are gluten-free.

Is your daughter Celiac? If so, she shouldn't be eating "regular" cake. That was probably what made her bloated. Many times, gluten reactions don't show up right away. It's individual to the person.

The next party, you could make her a gluten-free cupcake in the same flavor/frosting color, etc. as the birthday cake and send that along with her.

Your husband is experiencing what many of us do--the longer some people are on a gluten-free diet, the more sensitive they become to the smallest amounts. I'm that way, myself. :)

My daughters test were inconclusive, but my pedi suggested we try the gluten-free diet this summer, she has had a positive response. We think my husband may have it to, and he has had a harder time going gluten free, but he said the other day, that all his life he ate tons of gluten and it did not bother him very much, now since he has been gluten free if he has a little it upsets his stomach, it doesn't make much sense. I think he is having trouble following the diet because following a restricted diet is difficult when you have not actually recieved the diagnosis of celiac disease. Sooner or later one or both will be tested because if we don't have to be gluten free life would be much easier.

I am not celiac but I do have food allergies. I realized on my own that eggs were a problem but I never realized I was also allergic to almonds and dairy. Now almonds are pretty easy to avoid. But it's very easy to accidentally ingest some dairy, especially when dining out. And all it takes is a small speck to make me really ill. All my life, I ate cheese and never realized it was a problem. Looking back I can see how I wasn't really well. I almost always felt sick to my stomach and just thought this was normal. I thought everyone felt this way. I can remember seeing people smile and wondering how they could be smiling when their stomachs hurt so badly. Ha!

Hebrew national are GOOD too! But alas...I haven't been able to find a type that's soy free.

My bet is the cake made her bloated. Poor thing!

    Your doctor would run a blood tests (ask for full celiac panel) and then confirm with endoscopy and biopsy celiac doesn't always show up on endoscopy and sometimes the biopsy is what confirms.  
    How is one tested for Celiac Disease? I have had several endoscopes and the lower part too and none of the doctors have said anything about it. I have BIG issues with bloating, severe pain in my upper chest (under the chest bone), at times...
