This May Sound Crazy...

Recommended Posts

I didn't think I was very sensitive until I was truly gluten free for about 4 months, and then had some rotisserie chicken from sam's club that I 'thought' had never been a problem before.

Sam's Club's rotisserie chicken used to be gluten-free--they changed suppliers (at least, they did here in PA) to one who uses soy sauce in the marinade. So you weren't imagining things!

Last time I checked, Costco's rotisserie chicken was gluten-free, and they had LOTS of other great gluten-free items, including Trident brand salmon burgers that ARE gluten-free! (In the freezer section)

Your pasta recipe sounds yummy!

I'm still here...and I'm fine, after having a Chicken Filet Biscuit from Chick-fil-a this morning at 10:30. I have to say I'm a little ticked off. All I had was a moderate belly ache for a couple hours. No gurgling, bloating, nadda...nothing.

Maybe I'm one of those that it takes a while to hit.

Maybe I'm a Silent Celiac.

How am I EVER gonna know if I'm glutened or not? Does that mean all the stuff I THOUGHT had glutened me in the past few weeks was really a fluke? I mean, if a BISCUIT doesn't do it, some trace amount from CC isn't going to do it! But all the while...this stuff is wearing down my small intestine and makes antibodies against other parts of me and attacks them too...leaves me prone to cancer if left untreated.

I didn't want to have some horrible reaction, but I sure expected more than this. I'm.really.frustrated.

One of the frustrating things about intolerances rather than true allergies is the possiblility of delayed reaction. Different folks react in different lengths of time and some of us can have a predictable 'progression' of symptoms that we learn to recognize. You may see a more of a reaction 3 days from now.

Doing a deliberate challenge can have value when gone about by adding in the offending food for a week at least 3 times a day. You would stop the challenge when you react. If after adding back in gluten for a week you have no reaction and you were diagnosed with biopsy then you would need to be very careful about CC. You do risk, as others have pointed out, a severe reaction that might take weeks to resolve.

I also think it is important to challenge with a pure source like "cream of wheat" and nothing else added.

Good catch Shay, yes that is extremely important and I forgot to mention it. The Cream of Wheat was what I used when I had to challenge.

True, you could theoretically be just reacting to the oil or something, pure source is a good idea.
