Coleslaw- Problem With Additives?
0

1 post in this topic

hi

if any of you have read my other posts -i wrote about a problem i had with coleslaw. ive been told i dont have celiac, i dont suffer with any gastro symptoms at all. but one night i had horrendous problems- not wanting to sound dramatic- i thought i was dying. i was hot but shivering felt sick, stomach was making awful noises and had major diarrhea. after testing all the foods id eaten that night i decided it was the coleslaw. so last week decided to try it again to check- yep i was right.... then after i got my results saying i didnt have celiac i decided to eat it any way- with no problems whatsoever!!!! so i read the ingredients and they were all natural no additives or extras . so i went and bought a cheap coleslaw and my stomach was gurgling and flipping over all night, i couldnt sleep and felt kinda spaced out. checked the ingredients on this coleslaw and this one has - xanthan gum, guar gum and potassium sorbate.

its odd that one coleslaw was ok the other was absolutely not...

so my question is could it be the additives that i have a problem with rather than the ingredients.

ive been looking into salicylates and histamines( this was before my doc suggested the celiac) and wonder if this is the way i should be heading to sort out the odd food reactions ive been getting

any suggestions on how to get started - not sure whether to do a gluten free trial or try to sort out the intolerences first.

    • I had the gluten free bun this weekend in North Houston and I was pleasantly surprised.  Its surely not the BEST gluten-free bun I've ever had but it emulated the original Chick-fil-A bun fairly well.  The bun is the biggest gluten-free I've ever had, however.   I know they do prepare the meal separately and bring you the buns in a plastic bag and I had no reactions but I've been eating at Chick-fil-A for a while and always had good luck there (before it was just the grilled chicken nuggets).     It was nice feeling me and my oldest son enjoying a relatively normal fast food meal together with the rest of the family.  
    • Hi .there. I'm so tired of feelig like absolute poo every day! I'm 21 and I have horrible skin, mucous in my stool, extreme stomach upset and fatigue every day! I get confused, spacey, lightheaded, dizzy, irritable feelings constantly it seems. My whole body always hurts. And my joints. If im not constipated, I have diarrhea. Gas. Bloating. Itchy rashy bumpy skin. Plus I'm always hungry it seems.     Please tell me I'm on to figuring wth is wrong with me  celiac isnt good it is a horrible diagnosis but I just need some answers. . Can I have your opinions please?  Thanks! I dont know if my photos are going to work   .  Hopefully they do... :-/   
    • I tested positive on the antibody test, declining kidney function being what I had gone to a naturopath for.  I did not want to do the endoscopy, so did a trial of the gluten free diet.  I felt like a truck hit me for about a month, like a bad flu coming on, as tons of inflammation left my body. I was not terribly overweight, but lost it all in that month, dropping 30 lbs, and ended up looking emaciated after. I also did the DNA test, which only says if you have the potential for it, and that was positive. After 2 years I've now gained back muscle and bone and look healthy and fit for my height, and I'm 60 years old.  I have an official Celiac's diagnosis from a naturopath doctor based on the blood test, DNA test, and response to the gluten free diet.  Lots of docs think Celiacs is a totally intestional disease and disregard it unless you have all the diarrhea and underweight symptoms. I had NONE of that.  Oh, and on my last test, kidneys came back from 40% functionality to just basely into the normal range.  :o)  Good luck.
    • BarryC ... I have celiac's and didn't get my knickers in a twist!!! If I did, I'd probably trip and fall flat on my face and have other problems to worry about.  Don't worry about it, we're here to help.   If I get accidentally glutened, I do not get the intestional issues, but I do get some good body and bone aches. If I can't figure out what's causing it, and keep getting glutened, the brain fog sets in, I so very hate that worse than anything, send me to the retirement home early! I also miss a good beer, my regular grocery stopped carrying Coor's Peak, which wasn't great but wasn't bad. I have to go a little further to find good gluten-free beers, just try one of each until you find the one that you like. I used to love Heiferweisen beer...wheat beer of all things, but can't have that anymore, and haven't found a good substitute, oh well.  Onward and upward.
    • My understanding about the antibody blood test is that the amount of a positive result is not indicative of anything...higher does not mean definately have celiac's and lower does not mean could possibly not have it.  My doc told me that anything a little above 0 is the same as a big response, it just depends on the person how much antibody they will produce.
