Two mornings in a row I have gotten terrible stomach pains and watery diahrea within 30 minutes of eating 6 pieces of celery with a little Jif peanut butter on them. That is the only thing I had to eat on each day before this occurred. What's the deal? I thought peanut butter was ok. And I'm sure it can't be the celery, can it? Can I please get some advise from my experienced friends on this site. Thank you very much.

Jen

Jen,

I don't know what caused it, but I've had the same thing. I had some Carl Buddig ham and then celery with some generic (cub foods) peanut butter. Another time, I had a can of fruit (small can), and some Honey Nut PB (Skippy) on a plain, salt-free rice cake and also had to hurry to the bathroom. With the ham, I also had stomach pains, as though I'd gotten into milk :(.

I, too, would appreciate knowing what's up with this!

If you have a problem with soy, then peanuts are a no-no. Peanuts and soy beans are related. Try eliminating the peanuts entirely.

Peanut butter is not dairy. Maybe whatever stage of healing your body is at is the real culprit. This could be a temporary sensitivity. I read somewhere that sometimes the roughage irritates the intestines during the healing process, so that could also be it.

JEN,

Does anyone else in your house eat gluten? If so, does that peanut butter jar belong to YOU ONLY? If some regular bread crumbs happen to have gotten into the jar, that would cause you to react. Peanut butter, butter, jelly, mustard, mayonnaise...these are prime suspects for cross-contamination if there are gluten-eaters in the house. Just a thought, and I hope it helps!

Jen,

Thinking about it around Christmas time I made some celery with cheese and mayo and I know everything I used was gluten-free and I had some terrible cramps, etc.. I am thinking it may have been the celery, maybe it's just harder for you to digest!?!?!?!? Not sure but I thought I would share my experience....

I hope you are feeling better :)

Celery is one of the more difficult veggies to digest because of the cellulose (the stringy stuff) and I think maybe that if you are still in the recovery stage of the gluten-free diet, it may cause you some problems.

But I also agree with Sarah that it could be a cross contamination issue if you share the same peanut butter or even use the same utensils as a non gluten free roomate or spouse.

Jen,

Don't know when you were diagnosed but if it was recent, you might want to just try cutting way back on anything high fat for a while... difficulty with nuts was something I had increasing problems with before going gluten-free (those pb+j sandwiches were sure making me ill) and I am just now (months later) able to eat a couple of nuts once every few days without getting queasy (same goes for other high fat foods). So my suggestion would be to take it slow and stay low fat for a bit.

Just a thought, Heather

Thought you might like one more opinion. When I was diagnosed w/ celiac disease, I was having a very hard time with any of the hydrogenized oils. I still try to avoid them. They are in alot of the processed peanut butters to keep the elements from separating. I now buy the natural peanut butters and do not have a problem with them at all, although I do have to stir them up before I use them. :P

    • The distillation process does prevent the gluten protein from passing through the filtration process.  However for people who are gluten intolerant like I am, the cross contamination that occurs prior to distillation is still present after distillation.  Therefore while the protein molecule isn't present, the distilled liquid is cross contaminated by containing the gluten protein molecule prior to the distillation process.  I get very ill from any distilled alcohol that contained gluten prior to be being distilled.  For those of you that are gluten intolerant, please be exceptionally careful. Extracts are another thing to stay away from for the same reason.  We have to make our own.  It's a long process but worth not getting sick.
    • I just do a variety of gluten free foods.  Many because someone doesn't like cheese on his potatoes or someone won't eat something else.   I figure they won't starve if all they like is the turkey and the canned cranberry or the sweet potatoes and the apple sauce.  
    • Did the doctor diagnose you with anything?  It sounds like diverticulitis.  Usually treated with 10 days of antibiotics.  Infection can improve, but if it isn't 100% cleared, it can flare up again.  I just had a flare up that didn't improve after 10 days on meds.  Ended up in the hospital for 5 days of IV  antibiotics.  This condition is not related to Celiac.  Let your doctor know you are still feeling pain.  In the meantime, take it easy (eat low fiber) for a couple of weeks and see if that helps.  Call doctor if you develop sharp pain, fever, or blood in your stool.  
    • People who do not have celiac disease, but who have celiac-like symptoms that improve on a gluten-free diet are prime candidates for a condition called non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). Researchers don't know much about the condition. There are no biomarkers, so they can't just do a blood test. People with this condition often experience celiac-like symptoms. Many of people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity see their symptoms improve on a gluten-free diet. However, these people may also have puzzling sensitivities to other foods that just don't seem to add up. Interestingly, foods with gluten often contain fructans, a type of fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols (FODMAPs). Fructan is one such compound. Could fructan be the culprit?

    • Well timed Pep talk Admin. I am trying to accommodate all my intolerances this year to make dinner. Last year  I will admit I was so ill, I didn't bother doing a holiday dinner. My spouse (bless him) handled creating a small safe meal in 2016 as I sulked in the corner miserable as T-Day was my favorite holiday. I was still eating blender foods back in Nov 2016 post gluten challenge, so I sulked, pitied myself, and felt very far from holiday spirit and quite honest was not very thankful despite some long overdue medical clarity.  Ahh so here we are 2017,  I can have potato's again, thank goodness my daughter wants garlic mash.  They are back on the menu! Now I just have to try to convert my pumpkin ice cream pie to coconut milk style ice cream vs cow milk ice cream and master gluten-free crusts. Fingers crossed. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and if you are in the Celiac newly diagnosed pit the sun will rise again -stay with us.
