Substitute For Pretzels To Help With Nausea
0

14 posts in this topic

I'm just starting a gluten-free diet and realized I need to find a good substitute for the pretzels I use when I get hit with nausea. This usually only happens in the mornings after I take my meds that have to be on an empty stomach - I get hit with a wave of nausea and if I don't eat a few pretzels and sip some Coke or Sprite, I will throw up. :(

I think it's the blandness and saltiness of the pretzels that helps. What would a good substitute be?

Snyder's of Hanover make REALLY good gluten free pretzels that taste just like gluten ones! Even my family can't tell the difference. Glutino also makes pretzels but I haven't tried those. You could also try glutino's table crackers which are kind of like saltines or their round crackers which are kind of like ritz.

I highly recommend the Snyder's pretzels though because they're almost identical to regular pretzels.

We like Rice Chex when our stomachs are upset but need a little something. What about applesauce? Some meds you can take with it. Ask your doc or the company that makes them.

I like the Glutino pretzels very much, my family fights me for them ( :ph34r: )

and I also like the ones that come in little bags- Wylde? I forget, anyhoo,

the round crackers from Glutino are also very good.

Wow, thanks so much for the responses!! I didn't even realize they had gluten-free pretzels (just getting started with this)! Guess I need to keep reading. I've been reading non-stop since Sunday when this first came to my attention that it might be my problem for so long, but boy do I have a lot to learn!

Glutino and Ener-g have gluten-free pretzels that are very good. I can get them at larger regular grocery stores, and of course Whole Foods. Bananas, baked or mashed potatoes, gluten-free toast, and peppermint/plain tea are all helpful to me when my stomach is upset.

Would Walmart carry the Snyder's pretzels?

Some might. The ones around here have the gluten free stuff together and you have to look for it. I have seen the Snyders with the regular pretzels, too.

The Glutino pretzels are good. I have also found that Snyder's makes a gluten-free pretzel and they are awesome and I usually don't like pretzels at all. I just made a whole batch of the pretzel with Hershey Kiss and M n M on top for Christmas. they are yummy and best of all--gluten-free!!! Yeah!!!

I can second this... In fact I'm eating them right now :D I'm on a trip overseas and they ordered pizza for lunch. I had packed my gluten-free pretzels and some Lara Bars thankfully. My family loves the Snyders too, but I don't share LOL

I find this thread interesting...with each pregnancy - long before I was dx'd I could only keep "oatzels" down -- they don't sell them anymore to my knowledge.

Our family likes glutino pretzels very much, but have heard many times Snyder's are the best.

The glutino pretzels are good and also there are quite a few good rice crackers that are great for the belly.

Have you ever tried crystallized ginger? That almost always helps my nausea.

    • I couldn't have said this better!  
    • That value/score is a very, very strange way of reporting total IgA!
    • Better to catch a celiac disease diagnosis early.  Experts do recommend the testing of all first-degree relatives even if asymptomatic and while on a full gluten-containing diet.   I had my kid screened and requested a full panel since I test oddly.  She was also screened for anemia.  That was about three years ago.  We are considering running the panel again, but Not until she is back at school and on a daily diet of gluten (our home is gluten free and she is gluten light in the summer).   Celiac disease can cause long term issues.  You have osteoporosis besides anemia, right?  I bet you might have some other issues that can resolve on a gluten free diet that you just chocked up to getting old.  Wouldn't be nice to prevent such damage in your kids?  Wish I had known about celiac disease a long time ago!  
    • Non alcoholic liver disease is associated with celiac disease. My liver numbers were elevated in the year or two before diagnosis and I was dx'd with fatty liver (non alcoholic). After I went gluten free, my numbers came right back down to normal. I also had microscopic blood in my urine & had all kinds of tests & scans run for that until the docs just threw up their hands & said, "That's just the way you are". Guess what happened when I went gluten-free? Yep. All clear. I will caution you that you will need to eat gluten every day for at least 2 weeks for an endoscopic biopsy and for 12 weeks for any further celiac serum testing. Otherwise, you'll get false negatives. It's MUCH easier to just stay on gluten until all testing is done because after going gluten-free, we tend to have much more severe reactions to gluten. I am in agreement with everyone else. You need a celiac savvy GI. One positive on the celiac blood is enough to move forward with an endoscopic biopsy.  Celiacs can be fat, medium or skinny. We come in all shapes & sizes. These darn docs that think you have to be wasting away don't know what they're talking about. I can't tell you how many overweight people we've had on here who the docs were just plain nasty too telling them to stop eating twinkies & such as that. Inexcusable!!!!
