Gluten Free Products Make Me Sick?
0

15 posts in this topic

Does anyone else experience this -- eating too much gluten-free processed products making them sick? I felt awful after Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, and I cooked the entire thing myself. I was very careful about gluten. Had gluten-free stuffing and gluten-free pie crusts, a gluten-free turkey and a host of other things. About a half hour after dinner I was feeling terrible. No one else was sick.

I think I overdid it on the gluten-free products, which I rarely eat.

mmm... the gluten free items are good as a treat every once in a while, however if you over eat them then yeah. The only ones i can eat on a regular basis is my corn tortillas and my chex. I cannot eat pasta more than once every other week, or else.

More than likely you're sensative to one of the flours that is used in those. I for one cannot handle bean flours without becoming a balloon.

I found this too.

I now do rice pasta couple of times a week and the odd gluten-free brownie or muffin.

I was literally sick 2 weeks in to gluten-free. I think it was the corn for me,along with extra salt fat and sugar.

Great as treats, wholefoods might be better everyday.

Good luck

I have found that anything that has cellulose in it makes me sick. I have to watch the labels very carefully. Even my toothpaste got me.

Good point. There are flours and other things, such as xanthan gum, in gluten-free goods that are not typically found in other food products.

Yeah, I think the xanthan gum makes me ill, too. Which makes me wonder why I own a $10 bag of it. :(

I think that they can add up. I'm one of the super sensitive ones and don't eat very many at all.

I personally sensitive to the "gums" in gluten free packaed foods - xanthan, guar, acacia, etc. if I eat very many packages foods or too often then I get stomach cramping and spend way too much time in the bathroom. I highly recommend curing the packaged foods out and eating only whole foods for a couple of weeks and then trying the packaged foods just a little at a time and one product at a time. That is how I've determined my level of sensitivity to them.

GMO'd, Processed food. All are created using chemicals. All things in moderation and even less of the nasties. IMO

I can't handle the corn and extra sugar in many gluten-free processed foods. Just lost my shop bought choc chip muffins. It isn't like a gluten reaction for me, mostly reflux and D.

For me it is the fats and dairy and anything that makes IC flare up. I have to live by the IC diet as well. It is a challenge.

Most of them have soy, or dairy, or potato flour (nightshade), or grape juice as a sweetner. All of those cause me problems. You can react to any ingredient and develop an intolerance to it.

I'm new to this site. My son is allergic to gluten (among many other things - but Dr said he MUST eliminate gluten and peanuts!) (not a Celiac patient). We just found out. He's 9. His allergic reactions show up as severe sinus issues and intestinal issues (which I won't get specific about).

Anyway, going gluten-free, I have found myself allowing him to have things that I normally never would (like gluten-free tortilla chips at lunch, or gluten-free cereal, which has less fiber, protein and more sugar than I usually allow, in the morning). I don't know if it's his insides getting all "cleaned out" or if he's having a problem with the extra sugar and fat.... but he is experiencing some new intestinal issues. This has given me even more to think about. yikes and thank you for all your info.

    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
