Will Cooking My Own gluten-free Food In My Friend's Kitchen Make Me Sick?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My friend invited me over for breakfast, but completely forgot about my diet and was making French Toast. No matter, I brought gluten-free pancake mix and breakfast sausages. Is making my own gluten free food in a french toast environment enough to make me sick? We did share a spatula that was supposedly washed, but maybe it was just rinsed. I wasn't paying attention at the moment.

 

Alternatively, is my gluten-free food making me sick? Seems like I do better not eating things labeled "gluten free".

 

Background: Lactose intolerant at 19. Thought I had leaky gut in my 20's. MD told me I had IBS in my 30's. Had a mysterious problem swallowing this past summer, and pain in my ear. New MD said, I had an ear infection, and my throat was fine. I was also having reflux. Ten days and minus six pounds later. My MD didn't have an answer. I suggested Celiac. My IGA panel was normal, so no scope was warranted. I was on a low gluten diet at the time, mostly because bread and past was making me gag. I have Vit D deficiency (new that) and border line low Iron (MCV). MD suggested a gluten-free diet. I avoided all grains at first, just because I was too sick to cook. I felt great, Eczema went away, Keritosis Pilars got smooth, no digestive symptoms. I ate raw broccoli, carrots and cauliflower for days and didn't have any noticeable gas.  Imagine that! Early on, I ate a handful of goldfish crackers at work by mistake. It seemed like a score, such a giant bag. I grabbed a cup to snack on them later at my desk. Two hours after consumption, I thought I was going to explode. After the following three days of bloat, I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach.

 

Not sure where to go from here. The diet is a challenge to learn. 

 

Advice? Thoughts? Comments?

Did you say something about eating Goldfish crackers?  Were they the gluten-free ones?   You don't say when that happened or how long you have been actually gluten-free.  I think that if you are still accidentally eating gluten, it is too soon to worry about super sensitivity.  Why not give the regular gluten-free diet a proper try first?  Or, if you wish, do just produce and unprocessed meat first for quick healing and then try adding some of those gluten-free processed items.  You need to give the diet time.  If you are gluten intolerant, you need time to heal.  You also need time to learn the diet and stop making mistakes.  I hope you feel better.

What is the regular gluten-free diet?  Is that the one that the nutritionist gives you?

This is a bit old, but I believe she just meant that this person needs to be gluten-free & not accidentally eating gluten for a while before they worry that they are "super sensitive".

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...
