I Glutened Myself Over The Weekend.

Recommended Posts

So peed with myself. I am very new to this whole gluten intolerance situation.

I have been gluten free for a couple of weeks now and the difference was amazing. My energy levels were so much better and my skin was looking pretty good as well. I can't believe there was such a difference in the space of a couple of weeks.

I had been having a good time all weekend, making sure to drink vodka rather than the usual beer and everything was going great. Saturday night I was going out with friends and I had a nice lamb steak with chips and veg. Big mistake. What I didn't realise was that the chips are chilled rather than frozen and now I realise they were coated in flour to stop them sticking together. Late Saturday night I started to fade a little but I assumed it was the large amounts of alcohol I had drunk.

This may sound really weird but since I cut out gluten I seem to have become much more sensitive to it. My skin is a mess, my energy levels are shocking, I had toilet issues the next day etc after just one portion of those EVIL chips.

Anyway I met this very nice girl and we are meant to be going out mid week and I just can't face it. Too embarrassed by the state of my skin for starters and secondly I just can't be bothered to do anything at the moment as I am very fatigued.

Sorry about the rant, I just had to get it off my chest and I was hoping others here might have had similar issues.

Hello snipe,

it's ok, to rant once in a while. I remember when i started with this diet. Gosh, i was so grouchy :o , i think i was a pain in the but for my husband and everybody else around me. Although i'm feeling much better now, i still make mistakes from time to time as well. Nobody is perfect and if you want to have a perfect glutenfree diet, you only can watch what you eat and learn from your mistakes to improve your diet.

Are you sure, you didn't gluten yourself with the lamb steak? It could have been a marinade or a seasoning mix or so.

Hope that you're getting better in the future.

Lots of greetings, Stef

It happens from time to time. No matter how hard you try, something can slip by. On Friday, I decided to finish my husband's piece of flourless cake, not wanting a lot, just a taste. After the second bite, I noticed that there were a couple of odd tasting "lumps" and asked him if the cake had gone bad. It turned out that he didn't use a clean plate, just put it on the same one as his sandwich. I couldn't believe that eating just a crumb or two could make me as sick as it did for a couple of days. We were kicking ourselves for being complacent. But it happens. We just learned from it and will be more careful next time. Hang in there. I understand about your postponing your date. She will, too ;)

Thanks for your comments :)

I know it was not the lamb steak because I prepared it all myself but certainly one to think of for the future if I go out. I live above my dads restaurant so I popped down and cooked it for myself. My skin is just starting to heal and I feel much better today energy wise. I can't believe I thought the stuff on the chips was starch. I will certainly be more careful now. At this rate I will be turning paranoid!

    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
    • tTG-IgA Tissue Transglutaminase Immunoglobulin A Self The enzyme TTG deamidates gliadin (a broken-down component of gluten). In reaction to the presence of TTG, the antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA) is produced. Raised IgA antibodies indicate short-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten 2-4 weeks preceding the test.   Not 100% specific: there are other causes of a positive test, including diabetes, heart failure, Crohn’s and others. Also, people who have celiac disease can get a negative result with this test. Machine-read. tTG-IgG Tissue Transglutaminase Immunoglobulin G Self In reaction to TTG, IgG is produced. Raised IgG antibodies demonstrate long-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten from 3-6 months, sometimes up to a year, preceding test.   Valuable in diagnosing Celiac in patients with selective IgA deficiency. DGP-IgG   Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Immunoglobulin G   Newer, excellent test that detects an immune response to a very specific fragment of the gluten molecule (gliadin peptide).   If both DGP are high, celiac disease almost certain. Accurate for detecting gut damage of celiac disease, so good it is likely to make endoscopy redundant. Does not replace the IgG-gliadin test. DGP-IgA Deamidated Gliadin Peptide Immunoglobulin A   (ELISA) measures antibodies directed against deamidated Gliadin peptides (DGP) in human serum or plasma. AGA-IgG Anti-Gliadin Antibody Immunoglobulin G Anti-self (Older gliadin test.) The antibody immunoglobulin G (IgG) is produced in response to gliadin. Raised IgG antibodies demonstrate long-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten from three to six months, sometimes up to a year, preceding the test.   Not specific & sensitive for Celiac, but accurate as an inexpensive test for evidence of a gluten reaction AGA-IgA Antigliadin Antibody Immunoglobulin A Anti-self The antibody immunoglobulin A (IgA) is produced in response to gliadin. Raised IgA antibodies indicate short-term immune response, indicating ingestion of gluten 2-4 weeks preceding the test.   Not specific & sensitive for Celiac, but accurate as an inexpensive test for evidence of a gluten reaction Total IgA Immunoglobulin A Self The celiac blood test panel includes the total serum IgA test because some people (3%) are IgA-deficient. If you have a very low total serum IgA, that can invalidate the three blood tests that rely on your IgA levels. People with celiac disease suffer from low total IgA levels about 10 to 15 times more frequently than people in the general population. EMA IgA Anti-endomysial antibody IgA Self EMA stands for antiendomysial antibodies, which are antibodies produced by the body that attack the body's own tissue. When the EMA-IgA is positive, the patient almost certainly has celiac disease. However, the test also can produce false negative results in patients with celiac disease but only partial villous atrophy.   Highly specific (>95%), and >90% sensitive. The EMA antibodies correlate to degree of villous atrophy. Observer-dependent.
