What To Eat Once Contaminated?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been diagnosed for about 5 years now and I have ups and downs. I am very careful about what I eat. I somehow became contaminated about two weeks ago. I have had horrible diarrhea which will probably last for about another week (it usually takes three weeks to stop after contamination). At this point, I don't know what to eat. Everything makes me uncomfortable and it goes right through. But, I get hungry. Any ideas on what foods would be good until things calm down?

Sorry you are feeling so bad right now. I go with Cream of Buckwheat and also chicken broth with rice noodles. Sweet potatos are also good as they have good amounts of both soluable and insoluable fiber so they help with both D and C.

Thanks for the tips. They all actually sound appealing, especially the sweet potato. I will definitely try them.

I tend to stick to a bland diet when I get glutened. I will do chicken broth, rice, plain meats, baked potatoes, eggs etc. I try not to overdue it with fat since I tend to get fat malabsorption when glutened. I take RX creon when I get like that too but that is just me. Hope you feel better soon.

Fat malabsorption - definitely. What's creon?

http://www.creon-us.com/Default.htm

It is a prescription pancreatic enzyme. I was prescribed it back in Aug. 2010 when I was having severe fat malabsorption. It, along with another elimination diet was a last ditch effort to avoid steriods. I had been having issues for 8 months. I was able to quit taking it after about 3 months(I became constipated). I had discovered during that time of elimination I was reacting to gluten free oat cross contamination in gluten free products. I now avoid any gluten free product that may have that in and I am fine. However, whenever I get gluten or gluten free oat contamination or accidently eat something I get severe diarrhea and steatorrhea(fat malabsorption). The creon helps during the week or so it takes me to get over it, then I quit taking it.
