Hey, I'm new to the Gluten Free living style. Recently I feel like I've been feeling like I need to get sick. So I was just wondering if anyone else feels like they are going to get sick/gag? Thanks for your help!

How long have you been on the diet? What are you eating? Do you keep a food diary (this helps keep track of what you eat in case there is something causing you issues)?

For a long while I used to get that sick feeling with any trace of cc. Then I used to get it when taking my supplements before bed. You know, the sweating feeling, the gagging, retching, too much saliva stuff. It seems to have gone away now.

Shadowicewolf I've probably been on the diet for 4 months now. I'm trying to eat a lot of meat and a lot of fresh fruits and veggies.

Mushroom. Thanks for the help

You're meat might be whats causing you to have those symptoms. I know it took me FOREVER to finally find chicken that would not make me sick.

As time goes by, you will find out what your sensitivity to gluten really is. A product labeled as "gluten free" means less than 20 ppm. Most celiacs can tolerate that amount. Some can not. They go totally non packaged food. Be patient in healing.

Reba, what kind of music do you like? and welcome to the forum.

. A product labeled as "gluten free" means less than 20 ppm.

In the US, there is no legal meaning for "Gluten Free". It can mean no gluten ingredients. It can mean the company tests for gluten. Some use tests as low as 5ppm. You would need to check the company's website or email or call them to find out for certain.

Even if a product is tested with a 20 ppm test, testing negative does not mean it has 19 ppm. It just means it has less than 20 ppm. It could have 0 or 2 ppm.

Thanks for expanding the meaning.

So, make sure you are getting your daily carbs in there as well.  If your carb intake gets too low, your body will let you know it.  I accidentally did this when I first went gluten-free and I felt very off and anxious.  No need to camp out on carbs but if you're having breakfast--a slice of gluten-free toast, with lunch try some "Nut-Thins" chips, and it may just help.

 

Your diagnosis is enough to make you feel sick by itself!  It's a lot to digest.  Take a deep breath, get that balanced gluten-free diet in, take it a day at a time and the habit will form before you know it and it will all become second hand...

 

As for alternative music...  I can't say much because thats what I listen too.  ALT Nation on Sirius rocks.

I know what you mean. I've been gluten free for a month now and I'm still having lots of acid/burps/nausea. Hoping that will go away with time. Interesting about the carbs too...I may try to add more to my diet and see what happens.

I love country by the way :)

    • Thanks for the response, all helpful. Here is the ingredients for the Claritin reditabs:  anhydrous citric acid, gelatin, mannitol, and mint flavor. And here is the ingredients for the nasal spray: An aqueous suspension containing the active ingredient fluticasone propionate USP, and the inactive ingredients 0.02% w/w microcrystalline cellulose and carboxymethylcellulose sodium, dextros, 0.02% w/w benzalkonium chloride, polysorbate 80, and 0.25% w/w phenylethyl alcohol, and has a pH between 5 and 7. Does anyone see anything suspicious I am still new at looking up unusual hidden gluten sources.
    • Hi Spencer88- just wanted to update you on the splinter hemorrhages. I went to my GI doctor and he ran a bunch of bloodwork. I didn't actually get the bloodwork done for a few weeks as I wanted to go back to consistently taking my B-12, D3, K, and multi.(Solgar VM-75)  When I did get the bloodwork done, all the numbers came back fine. Vitamin C is water soluble so harder to test for than A,D,E, and K but I thought A,D,E, & K would serve as an indication of how my body was absorbing. Splinter hemorrhages have grown out on my one toe and seem to be growing out on my other foot as well. Today, I think one may be starting on another toe, so am increasing my clementines to 3 a day again and seeing what happens. (I had gone down to one a day). This seems so non- scientific, but I am giving it a shot. My GI also wanted me to check with a rheumatologist, but my tests for RA and Lupus all came back fine, so not sure I will be making an appointment. Getting tired of jumping from doctor to doctor. So far have seen General practitioner, GI, Cardiologist, & Dermatologist. We have ruled out a lot, but no answers as to why. Getting tired of hearing the word "idiopathic". How are you doing?
    • :-D I'm hoping the labs will show something, but I'm thinking you're right and I'll just have to go gluten-free if there're no "evidence". My doc seemed willing to ask for a skin biopsy if it flares again, so that may do it if the labs don't. The tricky thing is most of my symptoms are gone since I cut out milk, except the rash crops up every now and then, my scalp never calms down completely, and my hair falls out. Huh, I guess that's still pretty unsatisfactory, lol.  I may just need to cut out the gluten after we get through the testing.
    • Are you now gluten free? Urinary issues are definitely a celiac / NCGS symptom. I used to drink tons of water / other drinks and had to urinate quite frequently when I was eating gluten. Once I stopped this was no longer the case. I still have the urge to urinate though, but far less frequently!
