What Do You Do After Glutening?
0

10 posts in this topic

I was glutened a week ago today. I feel so much better now, but it has been a difficult week with pain, D, C, D again, muscle weakness and pain, headache (haven't had one since gluten-free). What is your secret to healing as quickly as possible? Probiotics? Other supplements? Foods?

I started taking VitaCost 20Bil probiotics and I noticed some faster healing, but that could be coincidental with the timing of natural healing...just not sure at this point. I take double the dose right now and will cut to normal dose on Tuesday. That'll be one week of double dosing to help heal the damage this past week caused. SHould I be taking other steps?

Looking for your best secrets to managing times when getting glutened to make future events hopefully less painful. Thanks everyone!

I've heard L-glutamine can help with the healing. Luckily I haven't been glutened recently so I haven't personally tried it out.

I'm glad you are feeling better. :)

I havent tried any supplements to help healing but my go-to has been some rice to bind things up in there (I tend to get D when I get glutened), home made chicken broth (which I keep frozen until I need it), and a good old heating pad that seems to relieve some of the cramping and abdominal pain during the initial stages. Don't know if this will be a help to you, but I figured I'd share!!

Homeopathic medicine. Maybe it's just the placebo effect, though at least it tames my symptoms (they are not baaad, per se, just bloating and uncomfortableness, though for someone who spent nine years with constant stomach cramps and vomiting, anything can be pretty unsettling).

Also, I tend to juice fast for eight hours or so and it usually works well.

Usually, I just go to bed. Whether it's a nap, or down for the night. I usually at least feel functional after wards. I am only a month of being gluten free. Before, when I was trying to be gluten-free but would slip, I would feel sick but nothing major. Now that I am a month free, it hits me a little harder than I expect it to. I ate 2 bites of my daughters donut 2 weeks ago and I was so sick, sicker than I had ever been and it took me a few days to really come out of it. Then, yesterday, I accidentally licked my fingers after cutting the kids a slice of cake. I didnt even think about it, it just happened and after ward I though, oh no! But then I thought, ehhh a lick isn't going to hurt me. But within an hour, I was very sick, headache, nauseous, foggy head, etc.

I am sure pretty soon just sleeping it off won't help. I am learning as I go. But that is what I do for now. Tylonal and sleep.

Wow KMMO320, that's some rough punishment you've endured lately. I will give the some ibuprofen or something a shot, but my pain lasted 3-4 days so I kinda fear doing it to myself. That cake incident had to be pretty scary when you caught yourself.

My daughter discovered charcoal tabs (gluten-free) helped her greatly after she discovered a wait staff had brought a dish with gluten by mistake. She said she will keep them on hand forever now.

Pepto Bismol and lots of water, plus aspirin. Avoid sugary things as they can make the bloating worse.

    • Hi!   It is true that there is a strong link of autoimmune thyroiditis (Grave's Disease or Hashimoto's Thyroiditis) with celiac disease because both are autoimmune disorders.  You can get screened for celiac disease by taking a simple blood test (JMG supplied excellent advice).   You do need to be on a gluten-containing diet (daily, 8 to 12 weeks prior to the blood draw) as eliminating gluten from will yield negative results.   I wish you well.  
    • I looked at their website, but did not see anything that mentioned gluten free.  Tea is normally gluten free unless gluten (usually barley based) is added.  But that should be included on the label.  I drink plain old Lipton and Republic of Tea (this one is certified gluten-free).  It is possible (though very low) that the tea was cross contaminated.  Here is more information about tea: https://www.verywell.com/is-tea-gluten-free-562355 I know I am always perplexed when I suspect a glutening.  My gluten exposure symptoms are never consistent.    So, I email my GI and ask for a celiac antibodies test.  If positive, I do my best to track down my gluten source.  Sometimes I am not successful, but by testing I can determine is gluten is actually the root cause or not.  I have only done this twice since my diagnosis.  Not everything is due to celiac disease.  
    • Hi I was wondering if anyone knew if red rose tea bags were gluten free? I have been drinking this tea for years now and the past few weeks I have not been able to drink it. I get cramps in my lower abdomen and this morning I got nauseated. I was wondering if this is something to do with the tea?
    • @LouiseBea Welcome!  Has celiac disease (dermatitis herpetiformis, skin version) been ruled out?  DH treatment requires a life-long gluten free diet.  
    •  I'm a new member and totally frustrated with Dapsone which has done absolutely nothing for my autoimmune skin disease.  This is a condition where the white blood cells attack the skin, and it's been on-going for 6 years.  Only 1 in 2,000 have this rare disease so zero research has been done unfortunately.  My dermatologist put me on a stronger dose which merely worsened it.  So back to the drawing board of what to do.  Redirecting the white blood cells must be an impossible task to figure out, but in this age of technology surely some doctor, chemist, etc., could come up with a solution? I've read where many people become antibiotic resistant and this may have happened to me.  I'm sick to death of my problematic skin, and any suggestions would be helpful.
