Hi all,

I'm new to all this...only 3 months or so. Being a novice it's been quite a ride but at least now I know why I've been so sick for so long. Not only am I extremely sensitive to wheat gluten, I have discovered that corn gluten and MSG makes me just as ill.

I can't even feed our animals anymore as the dog food has gluten in it and just touching the dry food or particles in the air (I guess)...my eyes begin to itch and water, I start sneezing, runny nose, then the 'tummy rolls'...they are the worst! I get so nauseous...in waves.

My question is, I wear dentures and from time to time I get sore spots/cuts on my gums. I use to use Benzodent but when I used it yesterday I felt all the symptoms of having been glutenized. I mentioned it to my wife and she looked it up on line...seems there is something called eugenol in the gel that she thinks may have gluten in it.

She also tried to query Poligrip Comfort Seal Strips but couldn't find anything.

Does anyone know if either of these are gluten free?

Welcome!

 

I can't offer anything on the denture question--all the teeth I still have are real (several were extracted decades ago due to space issues).

 

We owned a pet food/supply store for over ten years. There are a lot of grain-free (and therefore gluten-free) cat and dog foods available. You may need to go to a pet specialty store to get them. Most grocery brands are not gluten-free. Look for "grain free" on the can/bag.

For years, I purchased my grain free dog/cat food at my local feed store, but Costco now carries a grain free product line.  My cat could not tolerate grains (he probably had celiac disease :lol:) and later, my dog developed allergies as she aged.

We have a membership to Sams...no Costco in Lakeland, FL) but they don't carry any gluten-free dog/cat foods. I believe the closest Costco to us is in Orlando.

Sams does have a 'request box'...I could put in a request that they carry it. What's the brand that you get at Costco?

There are lots of grain free pet foods now.  I used to recommend Blue Buffalo but I don't anymore.  They seem to put too much vitamin D in the dog and cat food.  Also, they have had a lot of recalls due to bacteria.

 

You may just have to call or email the denture goo companies.  Likely you will get a CYA statement like "We do not use any gluten ingredients but cannot guarantee....Blah, Blah blah"

It's Costco's Kirkland brand, but as Karen said there are many specialty stores that carry grain free brands.

Thank you for all the great information about gluten-free dog/cat food. I'll have the wife look into it. Currently tho, it's taking all we can muster to keep my sensitivities in check.

Being new to all the pitfalls, every day is a challenge to keep me from being glutenized from the most innocent intentions. I'm a pasta & meat person, I can't eat the pasta made with corn and I find the rice pasta to be too mushy and sweet tasting.  At $4 a bag for pasta...Any suggestions?

Yeah, give up pasta, but only for a few more months.  As time goes by, you'll forget what wheat pasta tastes like.   The rice pasta  won't be so offensive then.  Besides, gluten-free pasta always tastes better with a sauce.  Switch to potatoes or hard squashes for now,  to accompany your meat dishes.

I use to eat bread, pasta with almost every meal... Mac & Cheese was my fav! Looking back, I was killing myself and didn't know. All I knew was I stayed so sick all the time... and the last 5 years was the worst.

I'm not much for sauces, basically, give me a piece of meat, pasta, beans or greens and I'm good to go. My wife tried to fix 'fancy' dishes when we first married (3 years ago)...with sauces...really didn't impress me. I was raised on a vegetable farm...food wasn't fancy but it was filling :)

BTW, she fixed breaded cube steaks, fried diced potatoes and carrots for supper tonight. Not much on the carrots but the cube steak and potatoes...made this man smile.

Unlike cyclinglady, I definitely do not forget the texture and flavour of wheat pasta, 3.5 years later. :-( But the process and cravings do get better.

When I do not make my own, my favourite commercial blends include buckwheat (certified gluten free), sweet potato and millet. Corn pasta is my least favourite unless in a blend.

Good luck with your pasta quest!

I don't think I'll ever forget the texture and flavor of wheat pasta either...but it's not worth the sickness to have it anymore. But I sure do miss it!

Do you have a recipe for homemade pasta? I am sensitive to corn gluten but I'd like to try the buckwheat...we've got some gluten-free buckwheat flour.

Yes. I am currently out of town but will get recipes to you. If I do not respond in a few days, would you please remind me? Often I do not get thread notification updates.

Do you perchance own a paster roller and cutters? If not, rolling out by hand is cumbersome and it is tricky to get gluten free dough thin enough.

    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc.
