Ok,

I had such a bad night last night, I spent most of the night with my head in the toilet trying to vomit (lovely mental image I know) and I'm still all gurgley down there today. :(

I was definitely gluten free all yesterday. The only new things that I had in my diet were:

1. gluten free orange and poppy seed muffins with Philadelphia cheese/icing sugar icing (all gluten-free)

2. plain chips (called company who confirmed gluten free)

3. gluten free cocco puff type cereal with soy milk (again all gluten-free)

I also ate gluten free pumpkin soup for dinner and an orange during the day. Before these new additions, my diet had been mostly fat and sugar free. I thought it might be a sugar problem??? :blink:

Apart from a couple of accidental slip ups and some lingering fatigue I had been free of symptoms.

I'm so confused and frustrated as I had been doing so well! :angry:


Australian

Gluten Free Since mid March 2008

As well as gluten I can't eat: cantaloupe, honeydew, dairy and most nuts and seeds. I also seem to have a problem with a lot of fruits and vegetables but only when they are raw.

hmm... the soy milk maybe? or the dairy in the cream cheese? did the pumpkin soup have dairy in it as well?

tough one! the dairy does come to mind; and the soy. I recently got VERY sick and it was right after I ate a cake I had made (gluten free of course). I couldn't eat anything sweet for a month. Anyway, I think it was the Norovirus, which was going around our town big-time a month later. Maybe I started the trend!

Is it possible it was a tummy thing? Or that there was something "bad" in what you ate? I don't know the ingredients of the pumpkin soup. Any eggs that might've been undercooked with salmonella or anything like that? No pooping troubles?

A tough case, to be sure.

one way to find out would be go back to your low/no fat & sugar gluten-free diet for as long as it takes for your system to stabilize.

then try each of the 'new' foods, one at a time, to see which if any were triggers.

If all is well even then, it may have been the combination of all the new foods at once?

Good luck being Sherlock Holmes!

I am also sensitive to uncooked melon - you are not alone there :) (I don't admit to an allergy, but I do get a gag reflex)


gluten-free (except unintentionally) from 7 Dec 2007

3 gluten-free cousins and counting (1 gold standard, 1 pos blood/no endo, 1 self/dietary diagnosed)

suspect mother was celiac (also, cousin suspects my mother's twin is celiac)

Feb 08 testing 'normal range' for gluten antibodies, IBD and food allergies

Staying off gluten - dietary reaction is compelling for me!

There are two things I look for when getting glutened after eating something gluten-free.

Where did I walk and what did I breath. (Like yesterday at costco store being too close to the bakery section.)

and cross contamination issues. So where did you eat?, at home or restaurant? -- I guess for me its more of these issues than and allergy to something else.

good luck

Mystery solved!

My fiance pointed out that I got sick the last time I ate the orange and poppyseed muffins. I don't have allergies to any of the ingredients on the box. The box states that they are gluten free but I get a gluten like reaction from them. Very disappointing...

I just noticed you are in Australia, do they use the Codex wheat starch in products that is supposed to be gluten free by processing? Perhaps that is an ingredient in the muffins. I have heard from others that they have reacted to it, although they can label things gluten-free with stuff that has it included.

I didn't notice it on the box, it had a pretty basic ingredients list, a couple of different gluten-free flours etc

I think perhaps it is manufactured somewhere that also processes gluten products.

Thanks for the heads up about the wheat starch, I'll look out for it :)

watch too for tapioca, though someone probably already said this (I can't recall). But it gives me glutened-like symptoms, and it sounds like it does for plenty of others too.

Take care.
