One month ago i presented at hospital with severe vomiting and uncontrolled diarrhea. They did every test and decided i had a bacterial infection. I had temp of 104, on and off for days. Two weeks later the Dr put me back in hospital with swollen lymph nodes and temp again, i am still on antibiotics.

The ONLY test that came back positive was the ADA for celiac disease. For 6 months prior i had severe bloating.

I suspected a wheat allergy; however tested (blood) years ago and it came back neg.

I have been off wheat for about 2 weeks. I do eat raw milk butter and drink some (little) raw milk.

My question is, i think i got some contaminated lunch meat (didn't know it contains gluten?) how long will i feel miserable? It has been 3 days.

You are very early into the diet. Have you taken care of all the precautions we need to take in the kitchen? Were all condiments, butter, etc exchanged for new containers that gluten eaters are not using? Have you gotten a new dedicated toaster? Those are essentials as even a tiny crumb will get us. You also need to avoid barley and barley malt, rye and oats not just wheat.

Very few lunch meats contain gluten. What kind did you have? Hormel makes some good lunch meats that say gluten free on the label. Companies like Kraft and ConAgra will label clearly and so will some other companies.

You may be having issues with the dairy. We are often sensitive to either lactose or casien, especially in the early days of healing. Butter should be okay as it is very, very low in both lactose and casien, from what I understand, but some will drop that also.

A reaction from a gluten can take time to resolve. For some it is one or two days but others can have symptoms for much longer. For myself the tummy stuff only lasts a day but the arthritis flare, irritability, brain fog etc keep going for about three weeks.

I hope you are feeling better soon.

I never even thought about those things, except the peanut butter as that is obviously got bread crumbs in it.

I have a large family, would it just be more practical to put everyone gluten free? the dairy is gonna be hard, we milk two cows! I will go off for two months and see.

I just can't believe how sick i am, migraines, flu like symptoms. I have had a re occurring not rash but very large pimple like blister; that itches like crazy, bursts then a couple months later is just a scar, and then another one pops up. dh?

It often is easier to just make the whole family gluten free but you should screen everyone for celiac first. The blistery could be DH especially if the scar it leaves is a purple color. A derm can biopsy the skin next to the outbreak and check for DH. Make sure they are looking for DH though as the lab needs to do a special test to check for it.

If the cows are at your home and they are eating a gluten grain feed or use a gluten grain bedding do be sure to have someone else feed them and change any bedding. The dust from the feed can get you.

You also should get a new strainer for pasta and replace any scratched non-stick pans and wooden utensils. If you grill either get a new one or wrap your food in foil.

Since you said you're still on antibiotics, make sure that those are gluten free, also. This may require some sleuthing around with calling the pharmacy, manufacturer, and/or distributor.

If they are not gluten-free, call the doctor and get a different kind - sometimes the same thing is available in a different, gluten free version.

Read the instruction label carefully on the antibiotics, and see if it is possible to take some gluten free probiotics or gluten free yogurt at certain safe intervals in between doses. If you're celiac you are likely lactose intolerant because of the damage to the villi (which will heal with time) and the raw milk is not doing you well. I know some types of antibiotics say no calcium for "x" number of hours before or after taking it, etc. Antibiotics are sort of a double edged sword - they can save your life by killing infection, if they don't kill you first. :rolleyes:

I wholeheartedly agree with the person who posted about glutenfree feed

for your Bessies. I think that it is only natural that what your cows

eat and drink, will effect their milk. Gluten was transferred to my son

when I was breastfeeding.

I can recommend colloidal silver for healing damage to your stomach - and

I prefer it as a natural antibiotic too.

Good luck.

OK, so i have my cows on grass as i said, but give them corn with molassis, oats and barley. So, this would have gluten. For now, i am off all dairy so i can make a slow transition for my cows. Corn? Oats?

You might want to give your vets office a call and ask their advice on what would be best for you and the cows.

    • Hello, I have been dealing with a mysterious rash for the past ten years that I am slowly beginning to think is DH.  It comes and goes, is itchy as all get out and shows up in all the areas that DH appears (elbows, back, torso, knees and base of neck).  It comes and goes over the years which has thrown me a little, but from what I can tell it can happen with DH? Anyways I went to an allergist, he was a jerk and told me it was not an allergy and to get a biopsy (which was done ten years ago when it first happened, but okay).  Me being at my wits end I called up a local dermatologist and got an appt for a biopsy.  I went in armed and ready with the info I have read here about the correct biopsy etc.  Well of course the dermatologist wouldn't give me the time of day Would not listen to the past history of the rash or look at photos, was in and out within five minutes and insisted on a scratch biopsy instead of a punch biopsy.  She simply said she would be highly surprised if it was DH.  I try to respect doctors so I pushed but I did not push hard enough.  She did the scratch biopsy against my recommendations.  So that brings us to today when I received a message that the biopsy showed an allergy and that they could either give me an order of prednisone or refer me to an allergist.  Now if you remember my local allergist sent me away and said it wasn't an allergy.  I am so done and I refuse to just keep medicating myself, I need to find the root cause.   So I have a physical tomorrow night with my regular doctor and I am tempted to just insist on a punch biopsy next to the rash for a proper biopsy.  Couple questions for you guys though.  If a scratch biopsy came back as an allergy could that possibly lead to gluten allergy (I know it doesn't prove that, but could it mean it could be gluten?).  Should I keep pushing for a punch biopsy? I am planning to go gluten free after this appointment anyways but I keep eating it to try and get a proper diagnosis.  I feel I should get a proper diagnosis, one to keep me on track, one to make sure that is what it is and also I did try gluten free for 30 days before and it didn't seem to help the rash.  But from what I have read that could have been to short of a time.  I feel I need a proper diagnosis to help me stay with it and keep on the right path.   Lastly, the rash definitely went through stages and is at an end stage, still itches like crazy but isn't as bad looking as when it started.  Does it matter when you take the biopsy as long as there is a rash it will potentially show?  I hope all this makes sense.  I am tired of being told I am crazy from doctors.  If they could find the solution I wouldn't be looking myself.  I would be very happy to be proved wrong but so far that has not happened and I just want an answer! So tired of being itchy!! Thank you very much for your help and listening!!!
    • I'm sorry I don't have much advice for you but I can relate in some ways. I've took generic Zoloft for about 10 years. When I was diagnosed celiac I worried about and researched my medications and am confident that they are safe for me. I have spent many years fighting depression and anxiety and have tried different meds but finally accepted I need the Zoloft and Xanax probably for life. I will say that most of our serotonin is in our stomachs and any time I switched meds or had to withdrawal my stomach issues were the worst. So please be careful with switching or stopping ( never cold turkey) any psychiatric medication. Also you could be sensitive to other grains. Gluten free bread does not like me. Also so far I have not found any one in the medical field that takes celiac seriously. I have been laughed at even and most don't have a clue what problems gluten does to us mentally and physically.
    • When does it matter if its gluten-free? ( likely is)  but she isn't eating it. She isn't 2 and put her fingers and paint brush in her mouth.  Are you or your son going to lick the glass?  Of course not.    Any paint can be be scraped off glass with a razor blade.  Some people use dry erase markers
    • Wow. I'm quite surprised that this is so highly heritable. I mean, I knew there was a genetic component, but most things I've read have said that it isn't very well understood and that other factors play a part.  This gives me a lot to think about.
    • The point is, celiac is mostly genetic, it can be dormant for years then come up. You can have it with no symptoms for years as it slowly eats away at your insides also. So you should have your kids eating gluten and get them tested. This way you know if they have active celiac. They should also be tested every year or so as there is a high chance they will get it.
