Throwing Up?

Recommended Posts

I've been eating gluten-free for two years. Tonight I went out for dessert. Within about half an hour, I felt really sick, and my stomach swelled up as it usually does when I get glutened, but within about an hour of having eaten the (supposedly gluten-free flourless chocolate cake), I was violently throwing up. After a few times, I felt tons better.

This has never happened to me before. Something obviously upset my stomach, but does anyone know if this is a normal reaction to getting glutened?

For some people this can be a common gluten reaction. My question for you is this, where was the cake made? It may have been that the recipe for the flourless cake was gluten free, but there was a lot of cross-contamination from where it was made.

It was at Finale, a Boston dessert place. I have eaten things that are cross-contaminated (meaning I've had gluten-free bread from a regular bakery), but I've never had that kind of reaction. It's good to know, though, that some people have this reaction. Thank you!

sometimes even when making a flourless item, the baker may coat the pan with flour to avoid sticking. I know they do this at Cheesecake factory with their crustless cheesecake.

When I get glutened, I usually do not throw up. However, when I ate General Mills Little Einsteins cereal (which I thought was gluten-free) for breakfast, I threw up and felt very sick.

I am a puker. :P In fact, it was because I had the D and I was always throwing up that my Doctor suspected celiacs. He said it was unusual other diseases would cause one to do both. Interestingly, when I first started having problems (many moons ago) I went to a Doctor who insisted my problem was that I was a bulimic in denial. I dropped her like a hot potato.

The first time I was glutened after becoming gluten free I puked. And like Rivergirl said, before I was diagnosed I had a combination of puking and D. I thought I was lactose intolerant ;)

And as mentioned, even though the cake itself was flourless, there is a good chance they dusted the pan with flour. I've gone to a few places where they've had flourless chocolate cake, and upon further questioning learned that was the case.

Sorry you got sick, but glad to hear you are feeling better.

On my first trip to outback after going gluten-free, I had the choc thunder from down under ( I think that is what is called. I had two bites & was sick. Everyone else ate it with no problems. I'm the one who hardly never gets sick on cc issues. But recently I got sick again but not at outback.

hope you get better fast...

I've puked a few times after a gluten reaction. Once was the worst gluten reaction I've had. Another time it was otherwise a fairly mild (overall) reaction.

I can't seem to figure out the correlation between the amount of Gluten I consume and the reaction. I've had a known glutening with mild reactions, and another that kicked my ass for 3 days. I've had presumed CC/hidden gluten reactions (no known gluten) that were severe, and others that weren't. Can't really figure that aspect out. Of course, most of my reactions are pretty severe. Sadly.

Holy cow. I've heard doctors say some stupid things, but I think that tops 'em all.
