Sick!

Recommended Posts

Last night I made a gluten-free pizza (with LOTS of cheese). I didn't have that much - maybe one medium piece. About 20 minutes later, I"m in the bathroom with diarrhea. Only one trip to the bathroom. But I was real nauseaus too. I ended up taking a Compazine for the nausea and I felt fine (went to sleep) about an hour later.

What happened to me???

I've only been gluten-free for 2 days now. And I have never had any striking results from gluten. But I'm doing a trial 6 months gluten-free diet because one anti-gliadin came back positive, the most specific came back negative and still waiting on another one.

My usual symptoms while on wheat is not that bad. Low grade nausea - nothing real bad or anything. No daily diarrhea or anything like that.

When I was on gluten, everytime I ate normal pizza - I wouldn't feel well at all.

I'm kind of thinking it's the cheese??

The pizza I made last night had mozzerella cheese, ragu sauce, fresh mushrooms -- that's it.

What kind of Mozzarella cheese was it? Which brand? Also, was it brick or pre-shredded?

Some celiacs have problems with dairy at first because of damage to the intestines. Once that heals then you may be fine with dairy. I was on and off intolerant my whole life until after I went gluten free. I now have no problems at all with milk.

I can't have cows milk but I'm fine with goats milk. I don't drink glasses of it but I like to have cereal.

I don't have any problems with yogurt or ice cream or small amounts of cheese ( like 1 slice).

So, it seems I'm having problems with large amounts -- like on a pizza.

Could be the pizza crust. If it had bean/soy flour in it it could cause you gastro upset and nausea. Or potato starch/flour or corn... lots of possibilities.

Could also just be you are only on day 2 of eating gluten free and your body is all confused. You might have withdrawls or trouble digesting.

Lots of possibilities. I hope you feel better soon!

I don't do well with a lot of the other grains. I have been experimenting with different ones and react to so may of them. Buckwheat, rice, quinoa all do their share. I am having a hard time with potaotes too so I avoid potatoe starch. I just bought garbanzo flour (chick pea) and am going to try to make some bread with it and see how it goes. Did you check to see what the pizza dough was made of? You may need to start investigating that too before you find a pizza dough that is ok for you.

I can't even think about having anything with soy flour...it gives me the same sort of TOXIC effect that gluten does.

Good luck in finding out what did you in. oh.......and you know about dairy too....
