Uh Oh- I've Been Glutened

I think I've had gluten today. The only different things that I ate from my usual were watermelon and cod fish. I get the cod from a local market, but I don't know what the ingredients are...I just assumed that it would be gluten free. Is it possible that it was preserved with a gluten containing substance? I could possibly be allergic to the cod itself, but am not sure.

Here's what happened after I ate it: headache, cramping, diarrhea.

A few possible thoughts on the cod......

Some people are allergic to white fish?

Maybe you just got a bad batch (Bacteria, etc)?

Perhaps it came into cross-contamination with something?

Was it cooked in a vessel that may have had traces of gluten in it?

I have been eating baked cod quite a bit over the past 4-5months and have not had any problems. I enjoy the mild flavor and it's a good source of protein.

I hope you feel better!

I've been gluten-free for three months and I still have D for no obvious reason at times. My GI told me that the while healing your syptoms can go up and down. This doesn't necessarily mena you injected gluten.

Hi Cleveland Bob or anyone else - I have a question about white fish allergies (if you know...) What fish are considered "white fish"? I keep trying to find info on the web (google.com) and getting sites about cat food and cat allergies. I guess it's the same info and I AM a major cat lover but wouldn't mind any info that points me in the proper direction.

Of course, as you mentioned that you eat cod with no prob, then maybe you aren't particularly versed in this area...

Just curious.

I stopped eating several kinds of fish a few years ago when I was doing the Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type diet and noticed after I tried eating them again that I would get headaches or stomach aches or smell really strongly of fish for a couple of days after (yeah, that's really fun...). They seemed to be what I would classify as white fish - sole was one, and then halibut was another (don't know if that's white fish). But cod is supposed to be ok (don't eat it, though).

Anyway, sorry it this is getting off topic but this is a knowledgeable group and I'm thinking maybe someone knows more about this...

Thanks for any help!

Stephanie
