Welcome.

I'm sorry, but you have not given nearly enough information for me to answer.

How do you know what made you sick? How long have you been gluten-free? How severe was your villous atrophy? What else did you eat that might have caused a reaction? What WAS your reaction?

Your first post here provides no context or background, but questions three products generally accepted as gluten-free.

Please provide some more background so we can understand the context here.

None of your listings would cause me concern. But your history would be an important road to consider.

Some celiacs are more sensitive than others. What one eats without problems, another can't. You could go on a whole foods diet till you are better than add things one at a time to know what you can eat.

oops sorry about that psawyer, cant really think straight right now.

I don't know what made me sick, that's what i want to find out because i got sick two times in one month. To be honest im tearing up right now because i feel so sick, and so frustrated that this is happening again. I have been gluten free for about 6 months now. The doctor did not do a biopsy because of all the factors in this, long story, i did get the blood test but that along with everything else and a positive response from the gluten free diet they knew as well as i did too that this is the only thing that fits and explains all my medical problems. I was doing very well for a while and now i keep getting sick again every couple months. Now twice in a month. I swear im this close to only eating salad for the rest of my life.

Everything i have eaten:

udi's cinnamon raisin bread

udi's whole grain bread

udi's pizza crust

bertolli olive oil (every time i ate this i felt nauseas afterward)

starkist tuna in water, the blue and silver can

tazo tea, stash tea, twinings tea, and once i had this cold and flu tea but it is supposed to be gluten-free

jif peanut butter

nutella

plain rice

mccormick salt

mccormick basil

I only have gluten free pots pans toaster dishes etc so its not that either. ugh i feel like barfing.

my main problem is severe nausea, I am so queasy its unbearable. Brain fog and depression also. So basically I just feel very very ill, and brain fog, i am extremely pale and sick looking and am losing weight.

There is no fruits or veggies, not much fiber. Lots of processed stuff. Even the good gluten-free stuff has a lot of sometimes, odd ingredients. What if you tried a less processed food diet. Chicken, rice, cooked veggies?

I see you are eating a lot of Udi's. Not everyone can tolerate that much xanthan gum.

Dairy was getting me and I thought it was hidden gluten for the longest time. I got sick after a party where I had wine, grapes, and cheese and blamed it on the wine, then on cracker crumb CC when challenged wine and it was OK. :lol: (Yes, I was in denial. I love cheese.) I am also finding that I react to tomatoes. What I thought was a reaction to shared fryer CC when I ate french fries is actually a reaction to ketsup I put on the fries.

I'd suggest starting a food/symptom diary and looking for patterns, particularly what you ate the two days before one of your reactions. Pay particularly close attention to dairy and soy.

From that list you have eaten eggs, soy, and nuts. 3 offerings from the top 8 allergens. Keep a food journal to see if you can track down another intolerance. Keep in mind some reactions can cause damage for 12 days. :huh:

Try the whole foods and leave out the processed ones. Also can tuna contains broth, was the mayo cross contaminated? You never know what is in that broth the only safe broth is the ones labeled gluten free and trust me the tuna can does not say gluten-free. Hope you find what bit you.

Your diet is missing fruits, vegetables, meat, poultry, fish and nuts and eggs. :blink:

You are losing weight, hon because you are not getting enough protein!

If you are eating butter and using cheese on that pizza crust--you may have a dairy intolerance.

There is so much going on it COULD be, rather than any "suspect" product.

Eat plain foods for a week or so and see if you feel better.

This means meat, fish, vegs, fruit, nuts, eggs. No gluten-free products from packages, nothing from a can. Plain and simple.

Do you take probiotics? It might help straighten out your gut.

Just some suggestions.

Meat and vegetables will or should heal you.

I get nauseous from too much gluten free stuff like Udi's even if it is safe for us. I don't know if it is Xanthan gum or what. I love Udi's and keep it around for snacks and treats...but it remains just that...snacks and treats. For my main healing food I eat meat and vegetables. Some fruit and nuts for dessert. Good luck to you. I know how much it sucks to be so sick that you really don't feel like cooking and you really cannot think straight. It was bad. Fortunately everybody who said eat whole foods is right. It gets better. Make soups out of meat and veggies or chicken and veggies. If you are really nauseous and having trouble eating, puree your meat and veggies or soup and get it in that way. Raw vegetables are sometimes really hard on your digestive system until you heal. In the end I had to give up dairy and eggs too because they make me sick. You will have to find out what the culprit is, but the only way is to eat clean for a while and then test the foods you suspect. Hope you feel better soon.

    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
