Did you eat anything else with the hot dog? Ketchup, mustard, baked beans, etc? Could it possibly be something other than the hot dog?

I don't see anything that would make you sick in the hot dogs, but some people are extra sensitive to preservatives and/or nitrites.

If I remember correctly, sorbitol is a sweetener and also happens to be a laxative when taken in larger amounts. It draws water into the large intestine, stimulating bowel movement. I know I react strongly to even minute amounts of sorbitol. It gives me intestinal cramps :( I can't even chew sugar-free gum or use Flouride rinse or I get very sick. Perhaps you are sensitive to that?

It could be a number of things...I hope you figure it out and look forward to what other have to say :)

Edited to Add: I found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sorbitol

It says, "Sorbitol also may aggravate irritable bowel syndrome,[8] and similar gastrointestinal conditions, resulting in severe abdominal pain for those affected, even from small amounts ingested."

thank you for replying to my post I just had some rice & Spinach nothing on the hot dog I think you might be right about the sorbitol every time I have anything sugar free I have a reaction but never as bad as this I'll watch out for that in the future thanks! :P

I doubt this is helpful but this is what happened to me:

I was eating a gluten-free brand of beef franks and feeling like they were bothering me. Well, got allergy tested, went back through labels and low and behold, the franks that I thought were all beef had soy protein in them, well, my allergy test was positive for soy, beef and mustard(which I had been dipping them in! I also tested positive to some spices, which I didn't check to see if they are in the franks yet, but one, if not some, are likely to be. No wonder I felt like they were not quite agreeing with me!

In addition they are the greasiest hot dogs I have ever eaten. I love the way they taste but all the grease doesn't like me much. I hadn't noticed the sorbitol in them, I don't tolerate it either so that may factor in for me also. Too bad cause they taste so good, oh well back to Oscar.

your definitely right about the sorbitol. breath mints, gum, cereal would all give me a stomach ache. have you tried the boar's head brand of hot dogs? they have skinless and aren't greasy. they do of course have the nitrates/ nitrites but great flavor (which is why we always bought the nathan's). :)

Thanks so much for the info on Boar's Head. I'll have to pick those up next time I shop. I love hot dog's baked in saurkraut on a summer day.

Do any of you guys like Hebrew National Kosher Hot Dogs? I hate that most hot dogs contain random body parts of animals (gross out!) and that Hebrew National are high quality. But...I've never tried them. Anybody have any reviews? I did check, they are gluten free :)

:lol: Hebrew National are the ones I was talking about in my previous post. I'm not a conisseur of Hot Dogs/Franks but I liked them-esp. the low carb and sugar content. Those and Boar's Head were my staples. However, as I noted, my body didn't like the HN:( Just my bad luck. Nothing wrong with them.

    • Well I took test for deficiencies today won't get the results till Tuesday then I can go from there.. road to recovery 
    • Ask them for a copy of your results and find a good gastroenterologist in your area. Go there and give them the results. That's what I did. I didn't even bother with my GP. I got the results from the health fair and called a GI in Denver. My insurance didn't require a referral. My GI was the one who put me on the track to being accurately diagnosed. And regardless, you need to be hooked up with a good GI if you've got Celiac so that they can follow you. 
    • Also, I had my bones checked a few months back (In January), and they were awesome. I'm still shocked at how well my body did with Celiac. I hear about all of my friends on here who had crazy horrible symptoms and I never did. I'm grateful. Because those ugly things would come eventually.
    • I work out regularly and I would say NO to working out if you have been glutened or are really tired.  You know what happens to people who work out when they are really fatigued?  They suffer injuries.  I was not well enough to work out until I had been gluten free for 4 years but I am much older than you so I doubt it will take 4 years for you.  Drop the work-outs for now and just go for walks outside when you feel better. The fatigue has to be better before you try to do gym work.  I know you didn't want to hear that but I don't want you to end up injured, on top of everything else. Take care of yourself for now and let yourself heal! 
    • They say you should not work out if your sick or dealing with such issues. I on the other hand do the opposite I will work out even if running a fever, I feel lost if I do not, and the endorphins help me feel fullfilled and relaxed......I have a few other issues as well >.> sitting still causes me to have mini panic attacks. I actually have to be on a stationary bike while on the computer lol. I swear it originates from being stuck in bed for days in the past unable to move, I fear being stuck unable to move my body like it used to sometimes. Got to admit the scariest thing in life is when your own body does not do what you want it to and it turns on you. As for steps, etc....I personally do about 24-30k steps a day or 11-14miles, Most of it pacing lol, anyway everyone is different so I can not tell you what to do just my own exp. Make sure you eat plenty, drink plenty of water and tea, and supplement anything your body might need. I eat constantly throughout the day to keep me going and enough protein and fats that it seems like a body building diet. Be careful and do not push yourself too hard, if you start feeling dizzy, tired or odd lay down for 15-20mins for a power nap. I do this twice a day at least just out of habit.
