Am I Being Glutened?

8 posts in this topic

I'm a couple months into being completely gluten-free. The past week or so I've just felt awful; so tired, headaches and today a canker sore. I've been trying to think of foods I've eaten lately and here are some things I've been eating lately:

Orieda french fries

Yopliat strawberry/banana yogurt

Blueberry greek yogurt- either Chobani or Oikos (can't remember which brand though!)

Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light version

Heinz ketchup

Walmart natural chunky peanut butter

Skippy natural peanut butter

Glenny's cashew and almond whole fruit/nut bars

Aunt Jemima syrup

San-J gluten-free terayki sauce for stir fry

Lays baked chips

Target brand women's daily multi-vitamin

Trident gum

Everything else I've eaten lately is fresh meat/veggies/fruits, cinnamon chex, rice and Udi's bread.

All of these foods either said gluten-free on them or looked safe based on the ingredients. Anyone have problems with any of these? I did eat out one night, but the tiredness started a few days before then (but headache was 2 days later and canker sore 5 days later). Maybe the tiredness could be a result of possibly catching a bug going around my office, but the headache and canker sore make me wonder since those were issues I had on my gluten challenge.

I can tell you Chobani is gluten free, it says so right on the container, Oikos is also gluten free. I avoid ketchup unless it is organic as organic has simple to understand ingredients, I'm pretty sure Heinz is gluten free though. Right off the bat what stands out most to me is Lays chips and Orieda french fries. I know Lays does not state that their products are gluten free, so we avoid those. We buy Kettle brand or Cape Cod chips because they say they're gluten-free right on the package.

Be careful when it comes to buying peanut butter, some contain gluten. To be safe, I always research the products before I put them near my mouth... just to be safe! Hope you feel better soon.

The chips do say they are gluten-free. I called the french fry company and they said there are not gluten ingredients, but i wonder if they are produed on shared lines. Walmart seems pretty good about saying if a product may contain ingredients and it doesn't say that on the peanut butter so I thought it would be safe. Who knows. I just wish there was a way to know if I've been glutened or what. I guess I'm still not 100% sure gluten is an issue for me (GI diagnosed me with sensitivity, rheumatologist said GI has a reputation of overdiagnosing). But since no other doctor has been able to help me then I'll give this a try for 6-12 months and see what happens. Just frustrating not knowing why I'm feeling this way!

Yes, Lay's potato chips are gluten free--their website clearly states this (and I've never been glutened by them). However, when it comes to french fries and hash browns, I've read that sometimes such products are packaged with flour to keep them from sticking during the freezing process. I don't know if Orida does this, though. Is there any chance that you might be sensitive to soy, as well? A number of the products you mentioned might contain soy....and, personally speaking, diarrhea is the first thing that occurs once I've eaten something that contains it. Many of us with celiac cannot tolerate soy. Just a thought....

My thought was soy also. It isn't uncommon for us to also have issues with soy come to the forfront after we have gone gluten free.

Ore-Ida is a Heinz company and they are very good about labeling. You can check the bag of fries (on the side) and may be surprised that it says gluten-free on it (almost hidden way down at the bottom). I don't know if all their potato products are gluten-free but I know their Sweet Potato Fries are...and they are good.

I just checked my bottle of Heinz Tomato Ketchup and it says gluten-free on the back.

The bottom line is that sometimes we just don't know or can't figure out what zaps us. I hope you're feeling better today!

It is hard to tell when you are only a couple of months in. Maybe it would help to concentrate on eating more healthy meats, fruits and veggies.

A lot of those things make me ill. A lot of those things make a non celiac ill. It's mostly "junk" food. I would just try yo cut back on some of that stuff. Maybe make homemade fries in the oven with olive oil and cut up potatoes. Buy some real 100% maple syrup. Just little things like that can make a difference.

I hope you feel better soon.

    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful. 
    • I think for adults who are disabled or have really low incomes, they should be allowed to keep their Rx.  But anyone else who is an adult and has a job, they should pay their own way.  There are so many options available in the UK now and their gluten-free options are really good.  You have better bread than we do in the States and the cost in many instances is lower than it is here.
    • Ennis....pertaining to food deductions, you can deduct the price difference between those items that you would have to buy a gluten free version of because there are no other options......like all the mixes and things mentioned.  Chips, not so much, as many chips are already gluten free so it would not apply.  Those would be your safest bet as you probably will be audited for doing this.  That's how the IRS works. If there are big changes regarding deductions, that will raise a red flag and your chances of being audited go up.  You sound like you keep good records so don't sweat it if you will gain a benefit in income from doing so.  You do realize that you have to have a minimum of 10% of your adjusted gross income to even begin to deduct anything?
    • Hey guys The topic title is actually misleading a little, I had an endoscopy in december, was told it was a little inflamed and they were pretty sure it wasnt celiacs, just a minor gluten intolerance.  Long story short, its now July, had to cancel appointments due to moving to london. tried ringing for results for a long time. Nothing. Last week, find out I am celiac with some eroded Villi.....from December Anyway. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks. I have had problems with kidneys aching, stomach pains, bladder pains, all sorts. before hand, I cut the gluten down, but was not entirely gluten free. I was told that it was early stages.    Gluten Free I am not finding so hard, but I am waking up EVERY morning with stomach pains still. Or bladder, or whatever. Ill go back to the docs soon. Ive been having a lot of fruit and I am wondering if the fibre is not letting my stomach settle. Also that dairy products might be causing the issue. I was basically trying to absorb some nutrients to get rid of my hurrendous exhaustion, I cant be malabsorbing as I still have Villi.    Any advice, anything would be great
    • Thanks for the info.  I will ask the GI about my twin sister and nephews to see if they need to be tested regularly too.  I'm hoping our insurance will pay for gene testing also to help rule any of us out if possible.
