I'm wondering what foods would be safe and soothing to eat after I have taken in too much gluten and suffered the effects(diarrhea, cramping, nausea, etc.) ?

Thanks!

Avoid gluten to start with - entirely! Sounds like maybe you haven't started a gluten-free diet.

Then think of the BRAT diet

Banana

Rice

Applesauce

Toast - make it with gluten-free bread

Good luck and hope you're feeling better.

Yes avoid gluten and when you eat take enzymes.Also probiotics are good to boost your immune system and help fight off things and also help with digestion. Try having tummy mint and chamomile teas by celestial seasons. Also altoids and peppermint things help with nausea. As long as you are not on a gluten-free diet if your a celiac your intestines will get chewed up and it will slowly kill you. There are increased chances of cancers and other things.

Kraft brands will not hide anything so unless it says wheat, rye, barley, or oats they are safe. Progresso has some soups that are gluten-free as well. They will also not hide anything. Soup with gluten-free crackers are good for the stomach too. Thai kitchen also has a good spring onion soup that is gluten-free. Mashed potatoes are a comfort food for me and help me when I don't feel so hot. Ok well hope this helps if you need more help let me know :D

I go with simple foods without too much fiber - something that will give my intestines a bit of a rest (but not too much :) ) - and something that's not likely to nauseate me. Applesauce and rice, vegetable broth with a few veggies (some peas/carrots - no corn), roasted chicken, and peppermint tea.

Thanks for the suggestions! You're right. I haven't begun a gluten-free diet yet. I'm waiting until I can get some bloodwork done in March(my dh doesn't have insurance for us until then. I've unfortunately been putting alot of things on hold because of that. We just can't afford the doctor visits without the insurance.)

Kaiti~ Are there any specific cancers there are increased chances of or is it all or any? My Mom and Grandma are breast cancer survivors, so that obviously puts me at a high risk. Do you have any links to articles about this?

Thanks!

Gastrointestinal cancer and lymphoma are what I have heard we are more likely to get without following the gluten-free diet. There are many other serious issues that can occur if we do not follow it. Hopefully these articles will help you out a bit. Let me know if you need any more info :D

I got these suggestions for coping when you've been glutened from another forum:

If you have been glutenized, these help:

bananas

papayas (fresh, juice, pills)

aloe vera juice (in Walmart or Target pharmacies, or drug stores)

tonic water

okra is excellent for soothing an irritated GI tract. It contains mucilage which acts as a coating. Amazingly effective. Good for constipation, too, faster than the usual prunes

My "safe" food has always been potatoes. When I am hurting so bad that I can't eat anything, the only thing I can still have is potatoes, either mashed or baked. It takes away the hunger, fills the tummy, and is the only food that doesn't bring on more pain.......

Potatoes work well for me, too. Also, gluten-free chicken broth

Baked potatoes settle well on my stomach when I have been glutened. Jello and yogurt also settle well on my stomach too.

    • I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results. A false negative is always possible since we have a lot of intestine but it sounds like you have a good doctor who took lots of biopsies.  Since she had a high positive it would be a good idea for her to do the diet strictly for a few months no matter the results. I hope you get some clear answers and that she is feeling better soon.
    • I did not see anyone give ideas about milk-based gravies or sauces yet, but I found a great solution by trial and error because so many recipes I love call for "cream of mushroom" or "cream of chicken" soup. Just melt a little butter with diced onion and put in some rice flour with a bit of milk and heat until bubbly. Add more milk (or chicken/beef stock) a little at a time until you have the amount you need. Salt/pepper as desired. Green bean casserole is still possible! Yay! Crush up some potato chips or those gluten free french fried onions that Aldi sells and it's just like old times before gluten free days:) There's really nothing else to it but if you feel like you need to watch someone do it before you are confident enough to try it on your own, you can see our family's simple little recipe here. Nothing fancy, just some free encouragement...  
    • So my type 1 daughter had her biopsy today and the gi afterwards noticed some redness/inflammation (gastritis?) but also saw the villi.  I guess I was expecting that with her blood test result of her transglutinminase ttg iga of over 100 that she would definitely see some damage.  Her symptoms seem to be ramping up as well.  She took multiple biopsies in several locations and now we wait.  Do you think that there is a chance that with a very positive blood test result she could have a negative biopsy?  My daughter was saying that she would like the positive biopsy to know for sure and to make it easier to stick to being gluten free forever.    This is really hard waiting
    • Avocados are packed with good fats. Aldi and Lidl often have them on offer.  You may be able to tolerate sweet potatos if you're looking for a carb. They're better for you than potatoes, lower glycaemic index and more nutrients. Ask the pharmacy if they can order in the folic acid variant your after or order it online? All the best! Matt
    • The outcome wasn't good, but if the planning had gone on for that long they could've contacted the tavern in advance and either satisfied themselves about their standards or cleared the child to bring in a snack. Instead they've lawyered up and a great many people are going to go through a lot of stress which didn't really need to happen.
