I have been cheating on the diet lately, I know it is bad.

Background, I was diagnosed in Nov 2004 and weeks later became preg. Every thing is going well so far. Although I have cheated once or twice.

Here is my question, I will get sick if I come near a bread crumb. i took a pickle off my husbands sandwhich which was between lettuce and cheese and got sick almost immediately. (servers who touch pickles also touch bread...whoda thunk?)

Yet i have a small slice of cake and I have fine. (I think it is the pregnacy and cravings that make me not be able to have control) I have gone over the times I have cheated and there are not all that many. The only times I get sick to my stomach are the times it involves bread or bread like things. Coulld I have an allergy to the yeast in bread and not gluten.

I have had the blood test, which stated that I was sensitive to gluten or intolorant one but never been tested as a full blown celiac due to the diet seems to work and there is no meds out there.

Any advice??

You have never been tested for celiac? Were you gluten free when you were tested for intolerance. Whether you get symptoms or not you will get damage to your system if you are a celiac. Some people react to some things but not other things. Other don't react at all and then others react to every little bit. I think if you tested gluten intolerant then it is not just any yeast in the bread...I find that very unlikely...you need to be comitted to the diet though. When you ignore it you put yourself 40-100 times more likely to get cancer and other serious complications so I would really watch it. There are still many things we can eat that are delicious but I think the gluten free diet is what you need to be following. You need to check things such as lipsticks etc. and make sure you get a new toaster if you have not already because of the bread crumbs.....let me know if you any questions. :D

To other moderators...I pinned this here...I thought it belonged here if it doesn't just move it :lol:

Yes, the symptoms can vary from time to time, but your post has me concerned. Untreated celiac (and cheating counts as untreated, I'm afraid) is a risk factor for infertility and problem pregnancies. Now, if ANY is not the time to cheat, unfortunately.

What tests did you have done and what were the results? False positives are almost unheard of.

Your risk for miscarriage is now way up because of the cheating, unfortunatley. Please don't cheat if you have celiac disease or if you're gluten intolerant, and if you haven't gotten a firm diagnosis, see your dr. and try for one. That way you won't have to continue to question it in the future. Good luck to you and feel better.

    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
    • I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition.   Thanks
    • @Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks
    • The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host Here's a GOOD article to read.... http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/gluten-and-communion-whats-a-celiac-to-do-72220/ And, finally, I would strongly encourage you to review the articles you are posting and using legitimate news sources. The National Catholic Reporter is widely known to be a source of inaccurate Catholic news and most Catholics disregard the information that comes from their paper. The Catholic church is not excluding anyone from receiving Holy Communion.
