Hi Mario,

I'm sorry you are still feeling bad. It can sometimes take up to a week or more to get rid of the effects of gluten after an accident. You should be better soon, just make sure you don't have another accident for a while.

Happy Belated Birthday. Mine is today! I'm 32 years old. We went out to eat and I am hoping the meal was fine. I really don't want to get sick this week. It was a chicken breast on a salad. (grilled, and I forgot to tell them to make sure they cleaned the grill first! oops. I was so worried about the dressing and the croutons on the salad) I also ordered a plain baked potato, but as I sit here right now I realise I never got the potato. I hope my husband didn't pay for it...

God bless,

Mariann

Hi Mario,

Thanks for the Birthday wishes. No I don't have MSN, or any other chat features. But that's okay. I check my e-mail daily and feel free to e-mail me. I'll get right back to you. :)

It may take a while for you to get back on track. Just hang in there, and yes, it might be good to start back at the basics. The easy to digest foods that you were able to tolerate at the beginning. This will give your body a break while it heals.

God bless,

Mariann

Mario, this might be a little late, but do not forget to drink lots of water to replace the liquids you lost during the diarrhea bouts. Gatorade is good for this too as it contains essential electrolytes. Dehydration is a very real concern during times like this. Good luck!

Mario & Mariann - Happy Birthday to both of you! Mine was Feb. 17th (I turned 34) and that is the day I went gluten-free. So far so good! :D

Mario - I hope you feel better soon!

I have a question about accidents: If we discover our mistake within 20 minutes, will throwing up stop the reaction? Or will it cause even more problems? I ate three Pria bars, which have barley malt in them, and while I was eating the last one, learned that barley malt is bad! That was yesterday, last night and now I am just miserable! If I had gone and thrown up, would I have avoided this misery? :unsure:

Dessa,

Throwing up might help a little bit, but I think that once the reaction starts, there's not much that can be done about it. The symptoms are not caused directly by gluten, but rather by the body's immune system--and once the defenses are marshalled, they're going to do their "job" even if the gluten suddenly disappears!

I'm questioning myself, are rice cakes safe with peanut butter or kraft jams. I eat the quaker rice cakes natural..

Throwing up won't get rid of all traces of gluten. Even one microscopic speck is enough to make a lot of people react, and is enough to cause damage. The only thing I can think of that throwing up may help is that the body has less gluten to clear out of your system.

Hmmm, my body seems to have made it's own decision about vomiting <_< the last time I had an accident. I had NO control over it at all, It wanted OUT of my body. I guess my system has realized that gluten is a bad thing for me, and it wants no part of it.

As much as I would love to have a bite of pizza or something, I simply cannot knowingly do it. The repercussions were enough to stifle that Idea completely.

Blessings

My body is like that too- if it doesn't like something I ate, it doesn't stay down. I also tend to vomit when I get stressed out or really upset. Been like that for years.

When I went to see Passion of the Christ, I was so disturbed by the violence that I felt like I was going to throw up several times during the movie, and also felt queasy on through the next day. I guess I have a sensitive stomach.

    • Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based. @Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals
    • Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head!  The glasses may not be clean!!  I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free)  another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects. if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is!  Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS)  i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!!  The humour and information has made me feel so much better  thanks all  xxx
    • Hey Matt  thanks for your reply fellow Brit! I this is very interesting... I am very sensitive to cross contamination... e.g. A sieve wasn't washed properly when I lived at my mums so when I had drained my gluten-free pasta .. I hadn't even eaten the dish before I started to pass out and go dizzy and hot .. calling for my bf and mum ( they had a great team going when I would have an episode) it's horrendous!  The fatigue is something I imagine every coeliac suffers with! I have to nap a lot.  Ok so the booze I drink most of is -processo -amaretto -vodka, wine, cider (very rarely)  when I drink at home I'm fine!!!  I wonder if it's cross contamination from the bar or the level of alcohol?!  I also had a jäger bomb shot on Friday (looked it up and a lot of people say it's gluten-free)  it's a hard live but someone's got to do it!!  Thanks for the reply!  When you get poorly from gluten (and the other evil candidates) are you so bad you can't function and feel your body is about to snap?  Kind regards  steph 
    • Hi Steph and welcome I'm yet another Brit, funny how the alcohol threads flush us out I don't drink now but after a big night I used to get truly savage all day hangovers, much worse than those of my friends. They could include splitting headaches, vomiting, nausea, a 'fuzziness' in my head, sweats etc.  After I put the pieces together and went gluten free I had a 'big night' on cider only and the next day was a revelation. What I'd thought was a 'normal' hangover was, for me at least, anything but. With gluten out of the equation hangovers were a breeze! The difference was mind blowing and just one more example of how gluten had been messing with me over the years. So when I read your post my first thought was that there was some trace gluten contamination going on. However: Obviously you've been at the diet for some considerable time now and know the score. I know Coeliac UK are firmly of the opinion that all spirits are safe but some (note some this a contentious one :D) members here will tell you they react to gluten based grain spirits for instance which distillation should render safe.  Then there's the dangers of shared lines if you're drinking say Strongbow in a pub as alluded to above. Lastly it its wine, there's the often cited but maybe apocryphal these days 'flour to seal the casks' possibility. Finally there's bar snacks, maybe a brand of nuts etc that you snack on that may have changed their production process? I'm sure you've thought of these already, but it may be useful if you post your alcoholic drink choices / bar snack of choice up here maybe someone will have some input?.   The second thing which leapt out was: Would you class yourself as super sensitive to cross contamination etc? Firstly that would make the cross contamination theory more compelling. You could test that out by having a drink at home under controlled circumstances to see whether the same issue arises? That could also answer the quantity question. Does one safe drink trigger it, two, three etc? Finally, and this is one that I find difficult, knowing you have the gluten issue may lead you to assume it's that when it could be something else. I tend to attribute EVERYTHING in the world to gluten these days due to it being able to affect me in so many different ways. Crisis in Korea? Gluten. Russian tanks massing on the Ukrainian border? Check their wheat intake. Global warming? etc. So it may make sense to pursue some other ideas at the same time.

    • Similarly, I've been vegetarian for 25+ years.  A 2015 Nature study connecting emulsifiers with microbiome changes has me wondering about the processed foods that I ate in the past, and I wonder about the wisdom of eating as much seitan as I did.  I mostly prefer my post-diagnosis diet since it forces me to consider every ingredient and to cook from scratch more.
