Which Food Made Me Sick?

I got super sick yesterday. All I ate that was different were 3 things.At about 1:00. I had 2 Kinnickinick oreo cookies, gluten-free, then at about 4:45 I had a quaker rice cake that had the cheese powder on it. I also had a low fat Baby Bell Cheese. At 5:00 it all exploded and I took 7 imodium to make it stop. I had to drive my little one a half hour down the freeway a half hour later. We stopped once. It was miserable. Today I still haven't gone, but I'm not exploding. So what do you think it was? I hate not knowing. I'm thinking about returing the cheese and cookies.

It might be the Quaker rice cakes. I got hit bad by those a few months back.

I don't think all of the Quaker rice cakes are gluten-free. I can't say for sure since we never buy them. Used to be they were not but then they did come out with some gluten-free ones. I would check to see if yours say gluten-free on them.

The quaker bag says gluten free on it. Do you think there is something in the lowfat babybell or is there a fat or something I'm sensitive to in those cookies? Kinnikinnick doughnuts make me sick too. So I'm wondering if the same ingredient is in this kind of oreo like chocolate cookie. Anyone have some insight? Do you think the quaker gluten free cracker got cross contaminated somewhere? I'll stick with the plain ones I get and never get sick.

i'd say it was the cookies if their donuts have set you off before.

I try to only have one new thing per week so that I can know what got me. Based on my reading of others' reactions, I'd guess Quaker. I can't eat any of those.

If it's actually gluten that caused the reaction, Quaker would be my top and only suspect. Kinnikinnick is very dependable and the cheese is highly unlikely to come in contact with gluten.

If it was something else, who knows? You'd have to figure that one out.

I vote for the rice cakes. I stopped buying them too.

(It would be nice to know if some companies take the time to read our discussions!)

I agree with Richard that Kinnikinnick is super reliable. But something in the doughnuts makes me sick, perhaps not gluten. But it gives me the runs. So maybe that same ingredient was in the cookies. I've eaten these rice cakes before with out issue. There are so many ingredients that it is hard to believe that something in there did not make me sick. I can eat garlic in moveration, but even the onion powder has me wondering. Yes I need to stick to the only one new thing rule. I think someone else will finish the cheese and rice cakes. I returned the cookies. I'm baffled that I can eat the grahm Kinnikinnick cookies no problem.

    • 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!
