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.

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
