I am always trying to find a similar thing myself. I get the burning stomach, but it lasts longer than just a day and night. And it will go when I eat really carefully but if I get overconfident and have something like chocolate then my stomach goes off again. Not that there's anything gluten about the chocolate, just the actual chocolate itself, which is normally not a problem causes me trouble.

I try to eat carefylly by eating well cooked veggies and fruit, rice or rice bread, and fish like salmon when I'm trying to get over getting contaminated. I have recently tried out drugs like Pepcid and Tagament but I am not sure I find they do much.

I do take a supplement called DGL Licorice and drink licorice or marshmallow teas, they seem to help my stomach, by coating it before I eat. So those are thoughts. No good hard and fast way to get over it, though, unfortunately...

Be sure you check to see if a fryer is used to fry anything other than fries. Most places stick chicken strips (breaded) or onion rings (breaded) into the same fryers as the fries. As for a remedy, try immodium, or Tums, or Pepto B. Read the ingredients on Tums, though. I think some flavors have starch. How about good old 7up? Or peppermint tea (Celestial seasonings is gluten-free- It says right on the bottom of the box. Good luck.

Whenever you oder fries, you have to ask if the fryer is a "dedicated fryer". They'll probably look at you like you have three heads. Nevermind. Ask them if they cook any breaded products AT ALL...ANY>> in the fryer. This will "contaminate" your fries. Most places DO fry their breaded chicken, breaded onions, etc in the french fry oil. That could be the problem.

I have the Tums with flavors, and they have "Corn Starch" in them.. Is that OK?

DO NOT take Tums. They are not gluten free. They told me that they can't guarantee them to be gluten free but others were told that they actually have gluten in them.

Corn Starch is fine and would not be a problem but other ingreidents may pose a threat.

Pepto Bismol is gluten free and really works for me so that may be something to try

Hi,

The French Fries have to be cooked in a separate frying basket from other fried foods (onion rings, chicken wings, etc.)

DEFINITELY AVOID TUMS. I am still recovering from being glutened by them last Tuesday (7 days ago.) How lame is it the med you take for you stomach actually makes it worse!

I'll bet the fryer was to blame. I don't eat fries so I didn't even think of that. I hope you're feeling better.

Like everyone else, I bet it was the fries. I just wanted to add that when you order anything grilled, make sure to ask if the buns are grilled in the same place on the grill as the meat. This could be a source of contamination, too.

For my upset stomachs, I have found these Peppermint gels with fennel and ginger that are really soothing and there is a lavendar and chamomile tea that works really well. You ought to be able to find both tthese things at a health food store and maybe even the health food section of your local grocery store.

    • Have been dealing with splinter hemorrhages on three of my toe nails since February. I did go to my doctor who rightly so did a very complete blood work-up ruling out other diseases such as lupus and RA and referred me to several other doctors to make sure that it was not cancer, endocarditis, or something serious. I went to the doctors.   I have done some research on vitamin deficiency and it seems that some link splinter hemorrhages to vitamin C deficiency. For the past 2 1/2 weeks I have been eating 3 clementines a day (in addition to the usual multivitamin that I take) and it seems to be helping the splinter hemorrhages. One has grown out and not returned. Visited my GI doctor today and talked about malabsorption of nutrients as a potential issue. We are doing more blood work and checking nutrient levels.  I have to believe it has something to do with the celiac. Sorry I don't have a better answer, but like you am trying to figure this out. Please let me know if you find any answers, and yes, be sure to check with your doctor to rule out anything serious.
    • You only need one positive on the celiac panel.  I tested positive only to the DGP IgA and had a Marsh Stage IIIB intestinal damage.   Good luck!  
    • Welcome to the forum.  First, you need to get copies of your celiac test to confirm you actually had it done and what the results were.  Second, to confirm a diagnosis, you must obtain biopsies via an endoscopy.  Were the doctors gastroenterologists?  Third you need to research  celiac disease.  Yes, you can be asymptomatic, but could still have instestinal damage as the small intestine is vast. here is a good place to start:  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You might think you are a silent celiac, but ever been anemic?  Had your bones checked?  
    • That's good to know about Texas Children's, unfortunately I don't believe they accept our insurance. Our former pediatrician joined with one of their medical groups and we had to find a new one due to insurance. I'll check out their site though.
    • 9 months ago I went to my doctor for normal blood work.  She called me to tell me everything looked great, but o yeah, my gluten sensitivity levels were extremely high.  I should probably stop eating gluten since it looks like I have celiac.  She hung up and I never heard from her again.  I cut out gluten completely, even though I have never experienced one single symptom of celiac.  9 months later, I decided to reach out to another doctor to get a second opinion, as I experienced absolutely zero change on 9 months of strict gluten free diet.  All this doctor did was request the results from the previous doctor, tell me it is confirmed I have celiac, and hung up the phone.  This angers me tremendously on two counts.  One, I have absolutely zero symptoms of celiac, and would NEVER know if I was "glutened".  Two, the complete lack of information or support from both doctors is horrifying to me.  And finally, I simply do not believe the diagnosis and as considering just starting to eat a normal diet again.  I would never know the difference.  I am really just venting because this situation upsets me so much, and I have suffered mentally and socially from going gluten free.  Since I have absolutely zero symptoms, even if I was actually celiac, I highly doubt anything would ever come of it if I continued to eat gluten.  I could just pretend I never heard from either terrible doctor and go on living my life.  Someone has to have been in the same situation as me, right?
