8 posts in this topic

Hi, just needed some advice on how to tell my boss that I can't work in the bakery anymore because it is making me sick....should i get a doctors note? Also...if I do deli shifts...will the gluten in some of the meats affect me? It is just slicing the meats...and we make like 8 sandwhiches a day...the rest is veggies/fruits.

A doctor's note never hurts. I doubt the gluten in meats will be anywhere as bad as all the bread and flour in a bakery. Good luck!

You should be fine in the deli as for one thing you will be wearing gloves when your handling the food. A doctors note sure won't hurt to get the boss to listen.

Just so people are aware of this...alot of deli meats do either contain gluten or are processed by/beside or in a no gluten free facility. Even hamburger or hamburger patties can have gluten in them. In the deli I work in there are only 3 kinds of gluten free meets..but I can't eat them because they are beside all of the other meats. Unless you go to a natural deli/butcher shop...or buy pre-packaged meats that says gluten free. I know Grimms meats are mostly gluten free...but like i said the would have to be prepackaged or seperated from the other meats at the deli. It's probably different in a big city though. I have a pop. of 3500 here...so we don't have a massive deli. Lol.

I work in a convenience store that has a deli. None of the meats that we sell have gluten in them, so check the labels of what your's sells. When I have to make sandwiches, I wear gloves and never touch the bread or hold it near my face. I wipe the sandwich counters with a wet paper towel, and never put my own food on it.

As for working in the bakery, I agree with getting a note from your doctor. There would just be too much wheat dust in the air for my health.

I work in HR, so I highly recommend a doctor's note. In case there's any future problems, you'll want to be sure that Celiac Disease was documented to protect you.

    • In comes SIBO Girl to join Captain NCGS   One other thought:  have you looked at the possibility of having small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)?  The pain you are feeling may be related to bloating pressure, which, if it is caused by SIBO, would continue after the removal of gluten because lots of foods feed the bacteria in your small intestines once they have become established where they don't belong.   One of the things that is confusing about celiac/gluten sensitivity is that is causes so many other things. Anemia, for example. Remove the gluten you feel better, but you may still need to treat the anemia to make those anemia-specific symptoms go away. Same thing with B vitamin supplimentation (nod to Professor Pellagra) and some of the neurological symptoms. Same with bacteria in the small intestines.  Guten affects my daughter's nerves. These affect motility, which affect her body's ability to prevent bacterial overgrowth. The removal of gluten was key to eliminating most of her symptoms. But removing excessive fermentable carbs was important for the SIBO to be kept at bay. That's the Fodmap component (but not JUST Fodmaps).  Going grain free has been amazing for her health.   Here is the best website for SIBO. Just something to consider. http://www.siboinfo.com/symptoms.html Incidentaly, SIBO is very common in folks with gluten sensitivities. I personally think that everyone diagnose with celiac disease should also be tested for SIBO just like they test for vitamin deficiencies. It would probably greatly help in recovery if you treated that condition as well. 
    • No, I was gluten free both times I had a scope.  They found eosinaphalic esophagitis and most recently ulcers.  The ulcers were the cause of the nausea apparently. i feel pretty good most of the time if I take all my vitamins, avoid sugar and carbs and lean toward the AIP diet.  I then have a corn tortilla or popcorn with my dinner and it's enough carbs for good sleep.

    • Hi Victoria I hope you get some replies as some of these people are still on this board.   Is this something you are suffering from? I thought I'd just let you know that I had this very badly at diagnosis, and it went on and on for some time. I had pelvic u/s and also a precautionary sigmoidoscopy - all was clear.  In the end what really helped was giving up all dairy for a few weeks.  It pretty much stopped - I missed my dairy though, so reintroduced it. But it was good to know it was bloating that was causing it.   But the pain was also due to something else. I still get pain to the left of my groin/pelvis when I've been carrying heavy bags and doing a lot of walking.  I have an issue with my sacroiliac joint.  Look it up - it is a common problem for coeliacs.  The pain transfers to the front of the groin, and also to the buttocks.  If I touch my left sacroiliac joint now it is really tender.  But with it I have an accompanying feeling of pain and pressure in my left groin/pelvic area, which reminds me of the time when I was expecting a baby , a simliar type of pressure.   I hope you hear from others but maybe this will help?
