Feeling Like An Idiot

Last week I posted about how I got mysteriously getting glutened from what I though was hamburger meat, turns out it was Treet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treet) I was an idiot not to notice the "contains WHEAT" thing, I guess the recipe changed on me or something.....

And to top it off I got a MAJOR glutening yesterday from Applebee's. I feel like trash.... Headache, stomach ache, joint pain, bloating, etc.

Why does the world need wheat!!!!!! Makes me so angry!!!!!

Sorry for the rant... :P

I know what you mean. It sucks to get Glutened when you are trying so hard to avoid it and it sneaks in!

We should all move to a single State and make it all gluten-free. :)

Or a tropical island with lots of palm trees and sandy beaches. Glutenfreeland is born!

I think Treet is similar to Spam right? Spam is gluten free.

I have been sick twice at Applebees and once was just with eating a salad. Never again. They don't get it. I have better luck with a potato at Wendy's!

Ahh, Shrommie, can we take over New Zealand? All those beautiful mountains and beaches to explore! Or I suppose we could settle for Maui, if New Zealand is taken, darn it.

Don't feel bad PBScooby. I bought some tuna in water tins because it was on sale a bit ago and didn't notice until after I ate a can that it had soy in it. Then I felt it. Dratted soy! Soy should be illegal in civilized countries. Along with taxes and cold weather. There, I said it. :angry::huh::D

I'll come to the island of Glutenfreeland. Sounds great to me. I almost sampled some beef at Costco and then read the ingredients. Contained malt. Who puts malt in beef? oh those guys.

Well, if you want to convert South Island to Gluten Free Land, there's a lot of baggage that comes with it. Sure the scenery is fab as Gee Eff points out , the folks are friendly (and many are gluten hep and free :D ) However, we have been having a few little problems lately. Like 7.1 earthquakes with thousands of aftershocks (down to only about one a day now though), and exploding coal mines killing 29 miners and too much gaseous gas to even get in there and retrieve the bodies :o We are on the Pacific 'Rim of Fire' with earthquakes, and active volcanoes, and hardly the tropical south pacific - heck we are the closest land mass to Antarctica except for Tierra del Fuego, and the US bases all its Antarctic operations out of my home town :rolleyes: So maybe we should take over Tahiti - nah, not big enough!!, and certainly not Oz (not an island, and all those spiders and snakes and alleygaters, no wait, crockadialsl :lol: Shoot, there is few places on earth that is perfect :lol:

I'm all for the island idea. As for Applebee's. Ugh. They get me everytime. Last time I had a plain salad and a plain hamburger and got sick, the manager was supposedly cooking my food personally and on foil too. No need to feel like an idiot. We all slip up!

We stopped going to Applebees years ago, pre gluten-free, because the service was always awful and the food never right. This was at many different locations in the town where their headquarters were.

Thank you for all the replies!

As far as Applebee's go, I used to have the BEST luck going there. I'm under suspicion to believe it's the Pepsi...I know that sounds crazy but at Applebee's that serve Coke I don't usually get sick. Go figure :P

As for the Island! I vote for anywhere warm!! I'm sick of the cold already!

As for day 3 of this adventure....I feel like poop. And I can't think of any other way to describe it.

Yes, plenty of hobbit habitat; plenty of rabbit holes too, but no snake nests although there are some snake-in-the-grass species. :o

No snake nests? What, there's no center of politics and government? :)

Went to a resturant and tried to explain to the waitress what i need and what i cant have. She replied to my wife what a pain in the backside i must be and told me they should take me out back and shoot me and get it overwith. I Know she was just kidding bout that but I get sick of ppl who dont get it or dont want to get it and think im being stupid when i move out of their area when they are eating gluten rich foods and dripping crumbs all over the place and setting it down near me and my stuff. Maybe im just paranoid:)

You would have an awful hard time convincing the average Kiwi beer-drinking bloke to abandon his Speights, Monteith's or Tui for Redbridge :P And at those prices too!! Or are you planning on kicking out all the gluten tolerant Kiwis?? :lol:

Now we are known as a pretty tolerant country, but the average Kiwi might not tolerate being kicked out of his country BECAUSE he was tolerant!!

Well them kiwi's, lettin' a bunch of furry footed hobbitses run all around the countryside stealing carrots and corn and rings and not wanting a few million grouchy, farty celiacs to move in. Think of all the great fireworks 'ol Gandalf could do with the extra flatulence we could add to the scene!

I suppose we could take a vote but for some reason I think the Kiwi's might not want to recognize it. Seems like Glutenfreeland is going to remain a virtual community.

    • It won't let me attach a picture. It's the Pure Beef Protein Isolate French Vanilla with vanilla seeds in the front.  
    • Thanks everyone!  The L-Glutamine is from Nutri-Dyne and the Paleo Protein is from Dynamic and is sold by Nutri-Dyne. Is this the brand you got sick from? 
    • Hi kelzz..........the only way you will find out if the increase is from gluten exposure is to have your doctor run the correct test.  I have said this a million times on this forum but I will say it again.....the DGP/IgA tests for reaction to gluten ingested. The tTg/IgA tests for intestinal damage and that can be elevated from other autoimmune diseases, or from ingested gluten.  So you are either being glutened in sneaky ways OR you may have another autoimmune issue going on. Sorry my answer is so late but I have been on vacation. I hope this information helps you!
    • Ok, so long story, but I'm hoping some knowledgeable folks can chime in and tell me if a) I'm not crazy for thinking this sounds a lot like celiac and not a lot like anything else and  are the tests being run the right ones? I had malabsorbtion symptoms my whole life, rashes on the inside of my elbows and knees, chronic constipation, chelisis, brittle cracking nails, my hair sheds a ton, irritation on the edges of my scalp, blistery rashes on my hands, low iron, low blood sugar, bloating, painful gas (like bring me to my knees type). I pretty much just accepted it as my normal, and when I went to get the skin issues checked out in my early 30s, I was just told it was eczema and sent away. The rashes on the insides of my elbows and knees went away when I was about 15 or so, but in my 20s I started seeing a blistery, itchy rash on my elbows occasionally. Fast forward to 2015, and I have a terrible outbreak of GI symptoms (always constipation with me, with the occasional horrible D experience sprinkled in) along with a pretty bad itchy rash on both elbows. I start researching and find that a lot of what I have experienced sounds like DH/celiac. By the time I get my referral in and appointment to the GI doc, I've decided to cut milk out of my diet. I thought back to when I had the last period of time where I had no GI symptoms, and it was when I was last deployed. The dairy in the chow hall was either expired or near it, so I lived on eggs, rice, and chicken, and hot sauce. ;p. Once I cut out milk, and I saw a pretty impressive relief of most of my symptoms. The chelisis is gone, my rash disappears, bloating is much better, gas pains are gone. I get tested for celiac- negative, lactose intolerance- negative, SIBO- positive. Two rounds of antibiotics 6 months apart and my SIBO (methane type) clears up. Basically they said I had IBS-C and my skin issues were likely unrelated. I'm pretty sure my issue with milk is casein-related, because my son has the same issues with casein, and I sure have GI issues when I drink it. (TMI... mucousy rabbit poo). So I figure most of my issues have cleared up, no active rashes, good right? Nope. Since then, I had a couple outbreaks on my elbows, but they went away fairly quickly, My scalp rash thing ebbed and flowed, and my hair still sheds a ridiculous amount. About a month ago, I had another rash outbreak on both elbows, a couple blisters on my hands... and it stayed. After a month of rash, I finally contacted my doc and said "look, this rash is active, please take a look." Just as if it sensed it, the rash started clearing, that same day. :-< By the time I saw her a week and a half later, it was gone, save for a couple scabs. So, good news is my doc disagreed with the GI doc and said it sounded auto-immune to her. I'm military, so I get what I get for referrals, labs, and doctors, but she's luckily very good and knowledgeable. She ran the following tests: Complement Panel: Awaiting results C-Reactive Protein: Awaiting results Celiac Disease Ab IgA Panel: Awaiting results Tissue Transglutaminase Ab IgA: Awaiting results
      Gliadin Ab IgA: Awaiting results Endomysial Ab IgA: Awaiting results Rheumatoid Factor: NEG Comprehensive Metabolic Panel W/eGFR: Normal with the exception of a higher than normal Urea Nitrogen/Creatinine (indicates poor kidney function or bleeding in intestines (ding ding ding) My GFR was normal, so kidneys are probably okay. ESR: 9 (normal is 0-20) Indicates inflammation  
    • I've tried 3 shampoos and a skin cream, sorry can't recall names! It can keep it under control but I want to know why it happened in the first place. I was already gluten-free, and never had it in my life beforehand. Just looking for a magic cure
