Holy Glutening!

I zipped into the health food store the other day and grabbed Udi's gluten-free bagels and Rudi's gluten-free hot dog buns. Last night I had a BLT on one of the hot dog buns and 3 hours later spent the worst next 3 hours of my life as my entire digestive system completely purged itself. During the "down time" (in-between barfing in the waste basket and squirting out of my butt) I went thru everything? Bacon? Nope. Tomato? Picked that day. Lettuce? Maybe it was some weird recalled produce? Mayo? Nope. Cherries? Nope. I wondered if I had food poisoning. I wondered if it was a glutening... would I feel like this for 3 days?? I don't understand why the stomach keeps trying to empty itself when there's obviously nothing LEFT in there!!

This morning I'm better but as weak as a kitten. The last time I was glutened was about 3 years ago and in the 10 years I've been gluten-free... I've only been glutened a few times. I pulled out the Rudi's hot dog rolls and instead of Wheat Free on the package, it said, "Wheat buns!" I can't believe I didn't see it. What a dope! I may mention to the really nice health food peeps that it would really be good if they kept all of the gluten-free frozen options together rather than putting all of the Rudi's stuff together, not all of which is gluten-free.

That said... It really told me just how sensitive I've become to gluten. I've NEVER had this extreme a reaction before. I sure will read and RE-read the packages from now on!!

Yikes! Sounds horrible. :ph34r: I hope you're feeling better now. Yeah, Rudi's is tricky like that. Udi's at least makes only gluten free stuff (I'm assuming that's the case since I've never seen any gluteny stuff from Udi's.)

I was tricked once in the beginning by Newman's "oreo" cookies. In big letters it says "WHEAT FREE". So I picked up a bag of them. Later, after having a reaction, I read the teeny letters that say "not gluten free" and then the ingredients that included barley malt. oy.

Oh gosh I'm so sorry you had that experience but I'm glad you lived to tell about it. It sounds awful. I hope your symptoms start calming down soon. And after 3 years without a glutening?! Oh how happy you will be when this episode is over. I hope you feel better really soon. I really don't like it when they put gluten free bread right next to gluteny bread.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
