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.

    • Leg pain can be a symptoms of celiac or NCGS. Cause can also be from a deficiency brought on from different causes including celiac. How are her magnesium levels? And B-Vitamin Levels? Bit of a joke, doctors call their occupation a "Practice" seems they need more practice.
    • I keep my eggy flat bread in the freezer for quick fixes of eggs normally. But I do sometimes make a porridge out of almond and coconut meal, Konjac flour can be used to thicken stuff into a nice porridge wand works great with almond butter. and I sometimes make a oatmeal knock off using Miracle rice, almond milk, and a bit of coconut flour. I can not eat carbs/grains so my cereals are nut based lol. When out of the house I find MRM meal replacement powder turns into a goopy chocolatey slop of indulgence with a very acquired texture by pouring in hot coffee and topping with a sugar substitute (Flax Meal in it thickens up alot)  >.>
    • It's so frustrating how they don't order all or the right tests and then if something comes back not right--just ignore it.  With my daughter I knew something was off for some time but her blood tests -of course it was only a ttg iga and immunoglobulin a that were run-came back negative.  But in looking at previous blood tests-she had a cbc run about a year ago that showed that her MCV was high and there was no mention of it.  Makes me wonder if that along with a deficiency in her vitamin D levels can be attributed to celiac.    On a side note--she has been experiencing lots of leg pain-to the point where she is sometimes in tears because they hurt so much!  She had her endocrinologist appointment yesterday and mentioned that and he didn't think that this could be attributed to the celiac.  Is that true?  As I stated before she is having the biopsy this Tuesday but I think she is hoping that this is a symptom of the celiac so that it will resolve going gluten-free.  Any thoughts?
    • I eat oatmeal and granola made with certified gluten free oats. I have to be careful of those that are labeled just gluten free or organic oats on the label as I have had adverse reactions. I also eat Rice and Corn Chex.  If I am traveling, I can usually find them in grocery stores even in small towns. Took Chex cereal with me when I had to evacuate for hurricane.
    • Hey fellow celiacs! Just wondering what cereals everyone eats. I know cereal is not the most nutritious choice but sometimes making eggs gets tiring so just a nice list of gluten free options would be great?
