I have only stopped consuming gluten a little over a month ago. Is it too soon to tell when you've accidentally consumed gluten?

I have been very diligent about my own foods, medications, beauty products, etc.

I do eat generic rice chex - and I've read that some people have problems with Rice Chex in general. This weekend, I bought the real Rice Chex because it was on sale. Immediately after eating it, I was sick: cramping, stomach issues, but also I felt almost drugged, like I couldn't keep my eyes open. I also had a return of some symptoms that had improved: I had a restless sleep, I woke up itching off and on all night (eczema), I had vivid dreams... and when I woke up, I just felt very foggy.

I also had this experience after eating out. It was at Red Robin who told me they had a dedicated fryer for their french fries, and that burgers were prepared in a separate area than buns, etc. All I ate was a burger with pepper jack cheese, no bun ... and french fries. I barely made it home before I was sick (GI again), and had the same symptoms as mentioned before.

I've had other stomach-aches since going gluten-free, but nothing with all these other symptoms. Is there anything else that could cause those weird symptoms?

Generally speaking, you shouldn't eat processed foods for another few months if you have just started.

I, personally, would not eat genaric chex, as they are probably not made in a dedicated factory like Chex is (which could be the issue here, delayed reaction).

Seems to me either you are A. still getting gluten in somewhere (such as a CC'd toaster) or B. you have yet to fully heal.

I do tend to avoid processed foods in general, even before going gluten free.. Rice chex (generic or brand) have been the one exception. I'll cut them out for now, and I'm going to avoid restaurants completely for a while. I don't even use a toaster! (But I do use the same pots that regular pasta has been boiled in. I'm not sure if that could be an issue if the pots go in the dishwasher first?)

What about the strainer? Did you get a new one? GLuten likes to hide in them whether or not its been cleaned.

I don't actually use the strainer either. For example - my boyfriend will cook pasta in a pot. It will then go into a dishwasher and then I'll use it to make my own chili or something. It's not one of those non-stick pots either, that gets scratched easily. It's stainless steel. I haven't been using any of the ones that scratch because I'm nervous about CC.

what about utincles? Are they wooden, stainless steel, plastic, etc?

I wouldn't use a pot, or anything that had cooked gluten, without first scouring it with SoftScrub or baking soda. Plates and stuff are probably fine, but cooked on gluten...not so much.

Also, when was the last time the dishwasher was cleaned? There could be all kinds of nasties in the filter.

Plastic is easily scratched - I'd avoid it.

Cutting board?

I'll avoid plastic from now on. We do have a cutting board but I don't use it anymore (and to be honest, I don't think anything except vegetables were ever cut on there). I doubt the dishwasher has ever been cleaned :(

You guys are scaring me rofl. I'm currently in one of my university's apartments, so do i have to clean the dishwasher too?

I never did with the one in my gluten filled home, but i think the bleach we used to put in it killed it maybe. I didn't get sick with it either O.O

I haven't used the dishwasher in quite some time. I noticed that my CC pretty much stopped at the same time I stopped using the dishwasher and started also using entirely my own dishes. I can't say for sure which the issue was. Recently the dishwasher broke and my MIL asked if I'd use it if she bought a new one. She pretty much was at the point of begging and pleading with me to use it. (She rather thinks of herself as little miss Martha Stewart and at the time I was sick as a dog and hadn't touched my dishes in like 4 days.) Finally I had to say in no uncertain terms that until I am in my own house and have a dishwasher that I can be in charge of on my own to keep gluten free I won't go near one. I don't trust the things. All those rubber gaskets and such. And have you ever looked in the bottom of one? It's nasty. Nope, won't go near them.

    • Hi guys, I had a really bad reaction to a certain brand of kefir yesterday. The reaction was neurological and I think it must have been an accidental glutening or an allergic reaction to an additive. The problem is I don’t know which ingredient had caused it. I was wondering if anyone has experienced a negative reaction to any of the following ingredients:      Locust bean gum E410 Apricot puree (further unspecified) Glucose fructose syrup Citric acid E330 Sodium citrate E331 Paprika extract E160c   I haven't listed the rest of the ingredients because they seem to be ok: e.g. milk, sugar.  Thanks
    • ennis how do you test for Candida overgrowth did I have to see a functional doctor or do medical doctors test. It would seem like a plausible  explanation to my symptoms. 
    • Hello everyone.    Ive been diagnosed with celiac for about 4 years now. It's been a rough road but I feel like I've gotten as good as I can get with eliminating gluten completely from my diet.    I am an undergraduate student with a driven passion to become a nurse (I'm a guy, I know). I love the field and can't wait to help people every day.   As some of you may know, the nursing curriculum is extremely intense. I have an very strict routine and schedule where I can handle the rigor of my classes, work, and fitness (I am really into health and fitness, it's the best release from the stresses induced from school. I get 6 hours of sleep on the dot and manage to work, volunteer, study, and eat decently well. I love my life when it's on this routine and am so happy and social with people around me. I'm making progress, I'm moving forward, making something of my life.    But lately I've been suffering. I've been getting sick a lot more often from what seems to be random uncontrollable cross contamination from various things. When I get sick, my routine gets all messed up, I fall off my schedule, and things start going downhill. I like to call it the "celiac rut" I get stuck in. When I'm sick I can't work out, without working out I get extremely stressed and can't sleep. Without sleep I can't focus on my school and you know, the slippery slope that pretty much leads to lots of depression and anxiety.    This. Absolutely. Sucks. I fall behind in school and have trouble focusing on my priorities because I need more sleep to heal, and I can't go to class or the gym when I'm throwing up or spending hours on the toilet. Plus the mental symptoms turn me into an angry antisocial gluten monster. So that's always fun.   I really don't know how to manage this. I feel like at this rate I won't be able to keep up with my daily life. I physically can not handle the lifestyle I have when I get sick, and it piles up because when I get better I'm like weeks behind in material in my classes.    I am am normally a super happy outgoing guy, I love being the person I truly am. But gluten is singlehandedly tearing my life apart and the depression is starting to take it's toll.    I honestly dont know what to get out of posting this. I just hope that someone has some sort of trick or secret to get through this awful "celiac rut."
    • Hello, I have the same issue with the hair loss a few months after going gluten free, I have been getting the b12 shot and was also told to take Vit D and Calcium, Also told it was because my guts are still not happy after all i put them thru, It's very upsetting losing the amount of hair I have, my right side of my head is about 65% thinner then the left...Was told it see a Diet person right away. 
    • There is sort of a detox/withdrawal thing for the first few weeks for most. Keep a food diary, often after a glutening a new intolerance will creep up for awhile. Sort of your body associating another food with gluten, and or it just being picky while damaged. Write down everything you eat, how you fix it, seasonings etc. Change up the diet, and look for patterns.  My own gut is being picky today and had D after 2 meals so I am rotating up and narrowing down the culprit tomorrow myself....only see 4 common things in my food dairy.
