I Was Glutened!

4 posts in this topic

Well Sunday I had dinner at my Dad's. Chicken which was stuffed with stove-top like dressing. I was given the chicken leg, which was kept separate from the dressing. I then loaded my plate with vegetables, ate, and enjoyed!

Monday however I had a splitting headache, and my stomach was trying to talk to me.

I'm telling you this because this is my first time being glutened since going gluten-free, and it was just....strange. I know it must have been the dressing, and my Dad's ignorance when serving it. He knows I can't eat gluten, but he doesn't grasp cross-contamination.

Anyways it came as a fright, becuase my headache never "progressed". It just hit me like someone hit me with a stick.

I think I've figured out my gluten "signal light".

I hope you don't get too ill. It can be hard for us to eat at folks homes that are not gluten free because they don't know all the things we need to do to keep us safe. Many of us eat before we go to gatherings with family and friends or bring our own food for that reason. Hope your feeling better soon.

Oh I'm completely fine now, it was just a shock as it was my first "glutening" since :P

However I have a feeling this will be happening at LEAST once a week for a little while. I'm trying to press into some people the concept of cross-contamination.

Some people just DON'T get it! I say "would you use the same spoon to used for peanut butter, then put it in a bowl of soup, and give that to someone with a peanut allergy?"

"would you give milk to a lactose intolerant person - once won't hurt?"

It's quite funny because my family is really trying to understand, but this is new for them, but I'd say they'll get the idea within a month. But until them, I'm more than happy to cook for myself :D

Ive been Celiac for a bit now and Ive learned that 0% of people get it, Eating out is the most frustrating.

You just have to learn to deal with people because people wont always learn to deal with you.

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
