Has anyone found problems with dried fruit? The label doesn't indicate anything non gluten-free, and i totally feel like hell right now. It's the only thing that i can narrow it down to, didn't do anything else, no crosscontamination from anything else, i know that for a fact.

Also, does benedryl or anything like that help when you get this pain? I've been gluten-free for just about 1 yr, and haven't been in this much pain since going gluten-free.

Please, any advice / help will help me tremendously.

thanks

Nadia, I wouldn't be surprised to discover that the production lines were dusted with flour (possibly oat flour) to prevent the fruit from sticking. You'll want to ask the manufacturer about that possibility. Chopped date pieces, especially, are usually coated in a large quantity of oat flour before they are packaged, and maybe the fruit you bought was run just after a batch of dates! I hope you can figure out the specific problem, just to put your mind at ease. By the way, what brand of dried fruit did you eat?

Also with dried fruit, you must watch for sulfites. Most dried fruit in the U.S. is dried with sulfites--just look on the label. Many Celiac's, including me, have a problem with sulfites, so be really-really careful. Shirley

    • I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum. But I could use some clarity and input.. So I'll try to make my story brief as possible😀 So about 8 months ago I began itching uncontrollably and after going to the Dr for labs she found my liver enzymes were 5x what they should be and was referred to a gastro Dr.  Gastrointestinal Dr ran multiple scans, blood work over the next 2 months and referred me to teaching hospital with a " tumor board" apparently I had a mass within my bile ducts that was blocking bile from liver. Was given a grim diagnosis of rare cancer and told would be dead within the year. Then had an endoscopy done to get tissue of the mass and for some reason it had partially resolved and was no longer blocking bile duct. At this point they could not find and cancerous cells. So fast forward 3 months I'm still in pain and had another endoscopy and the biopsy taken showed high possibility of celiacs.  The blood work was negative for celiac but after the grim cancerous diagnosis I had been unable to eat for 2 weeks or so and so I'm not sure if that would have skewed the labs?. How could the biopsy show high possibility of celiac?  And had anyone heard of celiac causing inflammation in the bile ducts?  I have been gluten-free for 6 weeks and have been feeling remarkably better pain in the upper right quadrant is less, and migraines ( I have had for my whole life) have lessened.  So all this to say I don't understand celiacs and how to explain it to family. Or how all of a sudden this happens. Ask if anyone can shed any insight I would appreciate it. Blessings   
    • Thank you for taking the time for sharing that info. Don't we have the best disease ever! There's got to be a better way to cut down the scarring. Yes, I've scratched till it bleed. Can't help it. It's like having a bunch of mosquito bites. Yes, only gluten free now. Still have bursts, so probably am being exposed to gluten. Will need to stop dapsone soon. Good luck with your situation.
    • Best Foods or Hellman's on the East Oast is Gluten free.  You can make your own too!  Easy!   http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/mayonnaise-recipe I buy any brand of sugar.  
    • Are you sure you do not have fractures?  I fractured two vertebrae two months after my celiac disease diagnosis DOING NOTHING!!!!   Turns out I have osteoporosis from untreated celiac disease.  😡  Consider a bone scan.
