Glutened, And No One To Blame But Myself :)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

i am generally very good about watching out for gluten, but every now and then i get side-tracked and can't seem to talk and focus on gluten at the same time.  

 

last week, i was on vacation with my boyfriend.  he had gone up to the bar to get drinks (beer for him, and hard cider for me).  when i joined him, he was in a discussion with the bartender trying to assess if the hard cider on tap would be safe for me.  i have been gluten-free for over 1.5 years now, and am getting better at wording questions that wait-staff can answer, so i asked if the tap was dedicated to cider.  it was.  I was so excited, i grabbed my cider and took a small sip - it was delicious!  as i was swallowing (and my boyfriend called me name), i realized the thing that made it taste so good was that it was a nice hoppy IPA, and not a cider at all.  OH NO!!  

 

fortunately, i only had an unhappy tummy for a day - it could have been so much worse.  

 

another lesson learned - no more draft cider for me if there is a chance i might get distracted :)

I did a similar thing last night! I was having a few ciders and went to the fridge for another one, I didn't know it but someone had put a bud lite in the cider 6pack holder. I didn't even look at the bottle (I was talking) I just popped the top and took a big swig! doh! I do feel pretty bad today, nauseous, tired, stomach cramps-not a good way to START my vacation! LOL

Me too.  In fact this is how I got my last glutening.  I was out on our pontoon with DH and grabbed a bottle out of the cupholder, thinking it was my Angry Orchard when it was hubby's Abita.  Luckily I realized after 1 sip but the damage was already done.

I imagine the 6th ring of hell being, just that, sipping an ice cold beer and simultaneously  savoring the goodness and then the panic sets in.

I'm sorry to hear that others have suffered, but it is comforting to know that I have company :)

 

I was kind of hoping that I would no longer like the taste of a good IPA, but no such luck.

I'm always afraid of something like this happening. My man is a big beer connoisseur (read: snob), so I do lots of beer smelling (there's this amazing raspberry beer that's sheer torture), but am extremely careful not to touch the stuff (and no post-beer kisses either).

I've had some close calls though: distractedly trying to get caps off regular beer bottles thinking it was my gluten-free, nearly taking a sip of a beer I was just supposed to take a sniff of (It seriously looked like juice! He said "here, try some" and I tentatively took it until he grabbed it back at the last minute. Ack!)

I also rarely get draft cider anymore because of CC fears. And also because I'm getting sick of cider.

 

Hope you recover quickly. It's amazing what a sip will do to us!

That's our world, I'm afraid ....a gluten-filled landmine. <_<

 

Guys, Kareng tells me she has a bright, colorful beer cozy thinger she puts on her  G F beer so she does not sip her hub's beer by mistake.

 

(hmm...not sure what to do about the glasses in a pub, except maybe never, ever put it down?)

 

Maybe you guys can get some of those cozies (I see it is also spelled koozies)

just a thought! cheers...and I hope you recover quickly.

I have had this happen to me. Now, my beer is always in a cover like this. http://www.freakerusa.com/collections/all

Or the foam kinds. My hub doesn't use one unless he is outside. Even if my hub brings me my beer in the cover or sets it in the cover, I double check what is in the coozie before I drink. One time he put his beer in my koozie by accident.

We went to the lake a couple of weeks ago. I didn't bring a koozie. My hub started drinking my beer! Fortunately, we had plenty so I poured that one out.

At bars, the gluten-free beer is usually in a bottle, so I just leave mine in the bottle. So uncouth!

at home, or in my normal surroundings, i am very diligent.  however, put me in a situation where i am distracted and chatting away and all bets are off :)

 

my boyfriend already declared that he will not be buying my cider on tap.  i think he felt pretty badly, even though it was my own doing.

Kiddo...this could very well happen to any of us. I have been known to become distracted by something like the cat or some good lookin cabana boy walks by and forget I am in the mid..........

Really I know your feeling. Been going to a restaurant with a friend of mine for about 6 months in AnnArbor , I didn't even know I was Celiac at 1st. Then I found out what my problem was and we continued to go every time she had to go to U of M. I even got their Gluten free Menu :) So proud of myself for being so good!! I was getting twice baked potatoes :) Yumm I seemed to still have issues , but figured it was they were cross contaminated , pffttt Went yesterday looked at that darn Menu and their twice baked potatoes were not on it!! Same menu I have been using since I have been gluten free. I think I just wanted to see those? Here they deep fry the things. ughhh well learn something new every day!!

Those aren't as safe as a plain baked potato.  They scoop the insides out and add who knows what and put them back in the potato.  In theory they should be safe, but if they aren't on the gluten-free menu, they might put something odd in them.

If they fry them, and they probably do, that would be why they aren't on the gluten-free menu.

 

 

Are these the "baked potatoes" you were blaming Outback or some other place for glutening you with on another thread?

No that wasn't me , I have not been to outback in years! This was at Chili's , When I was Glutened at another restaurant I didn't mention the name because it is not a chain restaurant. 

The potato skins I ate the last time I was @ chili's ,I would of sworn were on their menu. But this time I specifically looked for them and they were not there. I could of sworn I seen them on their menu. But they were not. No wonder I had to stop 3 times on the way home! Also thier corn chips are not Gluten free! I made that mistake thinking "Corn chips" They have to be Gluten free... But deep fried .. pffttt I am still learning .....

Maybe skip the eating out for a few months? Then pick places with good gluten-free reputations like Outback, PF Chang's, Red Robin, etc? Or up scale places?

I am old. :lol:  I call people I like "Kiddo". My Dad called me Kiddo and his brothers and friends called him Kid.

just "stuck". I was a teacher for 22 years.... had lots of kiddos..... you get the picture.

 

yes, we all laugh at ourselves. Makes making mistakes more enjoyable that way.

....and with celiac/NCGI, you always have pals.... and you are never alone.

    • Ennis_TX, thank you for your response! I will take heed of all your nutritional pieces of advice, one by one. And yes, I am aware that a gluten marathon is on the horizon soon.   Before doing the test, however, I shall try to fortify my diet with the nutrients you mentioned, and report back in a week or two.   I think adding some iron supplement is wise too.    
    • Yeah I thought that rant might make me look like a queer after reading it a bit later.....I am straight btw I just have very long and fine hair...that yeah it blows everywhere and gets in my mouth sometimes, and always pushing it with my hands or having to tie it up.  I blew up because it sometimes feels like I am talking to a bunch jocks with buzz cuts when it comes to hair....like people that do not understand no matter what you do....it is going to end up in your mouth and you have to keep messing it and working with it when the stuff runs like 4-6" past your shoulders.
      >.< thing is some times with the way your hair is.....you do not rinse it all out...some conditioners I have used in the past used to b ones you would not rinse all the way out....it sort of does become a issue that is very easily avoided. There are many more options for gluten free shampoos now days and many companies have taken the allergy/gluten concern to heart and removed them/used alternatives to boost sales to a larger demographic. Point is while yes I did blow up about it...and honestly in many cases the "hydrolyzed wheat protein" thing is a hit and miss on if it really contained gluten, but better safe then sorry is my bet and with tons of options....why chance it?


       
    • B-vitamins...most gluten and processed foods are enriched...your basically eating a multivitamin every time you have a slice of bread etc. Look for a full spectrum B-vitamin supplement, others can be magnesium, iron, vitamin d, folate, etc. You mention plenty of greens and fruit so ruling out vitamin A,C,K, and a few others. Hmm did you drop off your carbs too much? If your carb dependent you need more complex carbs from like sweet potatoes, rice etc. And what about fat and protein? I am a keto dieter, my body burns fat instead of carbs for energy so I can say it is quite important to have plenty of fats and protein in your diet. Try snacking on nuts/seeds between meals or making up a protein shake with almond butter in it between meals (again going but what you said you eat vs what you might be missing)

      I use Liquid Health for my spectrum B vitamins and vitamin D. Might look into them, being in liquid form you can just add it to a beverage. Might see about magnesium also, huge issue with many with this disease.

      On other after thought, your probably already very aware of...but you mention your not "diagnosed yet" you will have to do a gluten challenge of eating gluten for a extended amount of time daily prior to getting tested. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Thanks guys! I have an endoscopy/colonoscopy  feb 5th, so we will see. I have had digestive issues for the past like 10 years. GERD, migraines, lactose intolerant, dizziness on and off starting last year. My test just always show chronic inflammation, I thought they tested for celiac last time but it was only H. pylori samples. As much as I don’t want to have celiac I’m hoping this could be the root of my problem! My doctor said I should probably go gluten free after the test regardless of the results. You guys have been so helpful!! 
    • Well was trying it in smoothies, and puddings...but yeah  I can see it especially with the jelling effects causing some issues...will try again later. I changed over to pumpkin seeds higher in zinc today for my rotation.

      PS I am allergic to corn..and any kind of sugar messes with me. SO most meds are off limits. I went with Immunity Tea from Republic of tea, Ester-C Capsules, Thayers slippery elm lazenges sugar free, and a zinc Supplement for my remedy. Oh and sugar free meds normally contain that asu what ever stuff......makes me go off the deep end mentally.
