Accidental Glutening?

Recommended Posts

I seem to accidentaly gluten myself every other week...As you can imagine I'm pretty much out of commission for 2 or so days...I cannot possibly function at work with having to run to the bathroom every 20 minutes and well, you know the rest...I've had the same job for a while, pre diagnosis and they knew I had issues but I just don't think the understand the severity of it...I feel like some kind of freak and I'm always missing days of work I'm running out of sick days. I just don't think thy understand how BAD it feels when I'm glutened (is "glutened" a word?). I guess I'm just not careful enough and half the time I don't even know what it was I ate that got me....

Does anyone else have this issue?

I have had accidental glutenings. I imagine most of us have. If it happens repeatedly you probably ought to think of ways to prevent it from happening. Do you take your lunch to work with you? That is a simple way to make sure you are not getting glutened there. It's up to you to be careful about the diet. Nobody can do it for you.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

You have got to figure out what's glutening you every couple of weeks. That's way too often to be sick! Have you started a food journal? Checked personal care and pet products for everyone in the house? Do you share a kitchen? Could it be something other than gluten? Soy or dairy can cause similar symptoms and I get the same symptoms from peanuts.
