I am very new to how strict I have to be and I did this to myself. I ate Kellogg's Corn Flakes...OK..after 20 mins and now I can hardly move my hands, I ache all over and my gut is doing somersaults...is there anything I can try after the fact that might make this a shorter lived event????

I just checked and found that this cereal is not considered safe and it is now in the garbage, right along with the can of crumbs,but I suspect this is going to happen often. If anyone has any ideas on what might help now, I would love to hear. As my eyes had puffed up and I was achy, I threw some antihistamine in the mix with ibuprofen but am not certain now whether I made the situation better or worse!!!! Help!!!

No, not a safe cereal! Nor is Rice Krispies. You need to do your due diligence with mainstream products. Just because it says it rice or corn doesn't mean it doesn't have gluten.

My son, also a celiac, takes activated charcoal when he gets accidentally glutened. Not each time it happens, just when severe. He swears by it, that it cuts the suffereing post haste. Haven't tried it myself.

Here is a link to General Mills gluten free product list, which includes cereals:

ANd you may want to pick up one of those gluten free shopping guides, like:

or

They are really helpful.

Did you also get a new toaster? You can't use old one or share.

Ack! Definitely try to avoid processed foods and/or carry a list of safe/not safe ingredients until you get used to it.

I generally just suffer, and down licorice/ginger/mint tea to settle the tummy over the next couple of days. I like it, don't really know that it helps.

    • Matt It makes me feel better knowing I am not alone in this. Gluten sensitivity/celiac seems to effect women more than men too. Your experiance sounds a lot like mine.  Besides trying to figure out what foods were causing my problems, I am getting older, and have developed mild arthritis. I was also diagnosed with adult A.D.D. many years ago. As you know, both are symptoms of celiac!  I also began a new high stress career at the same time my symptoms began. So confusing. I guess that's why its called 'The great imitator'. One bright light is the fact a lot more gluten free foods are coming out now, and some of them are actually quite good! Thanks again and please keep in touch, possibly through Facebook. BTW I see you are in the UK. My heart goes out to those poor young gals in Manchester and their parents. I have a  young daughter as well. 
    • My mini fridges usually freeze my eggs!  Ugh! You can buy hard boiled eggs in packages at some groceries.   lunch meat, canned soups - Progresso has some labelled gluten-free, microwave rice - either frozen or in the regular rice isle - add frozen veggies and chicken lunchmeat or canned beans and salsa A few frozen dinners are gluten-free - amys , gluten free brands like Udis, EVOL, Lean cuisine, etc Bush's baked beans Read the ingredients and labels - they all aren't gluten-free.
    • Those cooked eggs are just fine!  If you want to insure that the frig is colder, add a bucket of ice.  Is used to travel without the benefit of a frig.  I just used a couple of ice buckets to chill milk, or whatever.  It worked.  If you want a hot meal, try Udi's frozen meals.   Not the best, but good for hotel cooking.  Several lunch meats are gluten free too at the market.  
    • I clicked it and got re-directed to c.com  but this time I got the article.  I shouldn't copy the whole thing but here is the conclusion - "In conclusion, in the right clinical setting, symptomatic celiac disease is treatable, but we do not recommend population screening. Further data on the clinical impact of a glutenfree diet on the microbiome and the long-term health consequences in those without celiac disease are needed. The entity NCGS closely overlaps with the functional gastrointestinal disorders, and new evidence suggests that at least in some gluten may not be the culprit despite symptom improvement after beginning a gluten-free diet.We do not recommend a lifelong gluten-free diet for individuals without celiac disease."   Celiac Disease and Nonceliac Gluten or Wheat Sensitivity The Risks and Benefits of Diagnosis Nicholas J.

    • Thanks for the responses. As far as genetic testing goes I wasn't offered that as an option. They ran several labs and everything was normal. We were waiting on celiac to come back and when it did the one marker was high. Not sure who I would talk to about having a genetic test. I did a genesight test for medications and it showed folic acid was questionable. But nothing pertaining to this. Endoscopy is scheduled for Friday.
