As you guys know, i've been sick with a virus/flu whatever you wanna call it.

Well today, i decided to eat an apple (bought at the food place on campus, i then washed it like mad) with peanutbutter and honey. I'm all good and fine with that. Then i decided to drink one of the little milk cartons i picked up with it. yeah... not such a good idea.

I should mention right now i ate some sweet potato last night and well, lets say, it didn't turn out well (bad belly ache). I was fine with the rice and a little butter that i had with it (ate that again this morning, no issue, without the butter).

I just got hit with a major "D" type bathroom trip. Yet, for the past two days i've had major "C" (normal after i have a day or two of "D"). It had undigested sweet potato in it as well.

So, whats going on? Is it the sweet potato? The virus/flu? Something else?

Too hard to tell. New dairy problem, glutening instead of the flu, the flu is worse, the milk carton had gluten on it, etc.

I would say that if you had a stomach virus, your guts are messed up. Those things can get you off whack for awhile. I make the boys eat yogurt ( probiotic) for a few days until it evens out.

You're probably not over the flu/stomach bug yet.

Dairy Milk ? Uh, maybe.... not yet. Milk with lactose and honey with fructose and your gut just said, not happy with that. Can you do yogurt, to replenish your gut bacteria, after giving it a rest ?

I was couchbound with some sort of virus over Christmas, fortunately never got sick to my stomach/gut because my instincts are to not eat anything weird when that happens, but it totally zapped me out of all energy for 4 days. I just told my over hyped immune system to "sic it" and it progressed really quickly. I could tell it was a virus because of how I felt the day before it started.... unusually flexible, to the point where I noticed it when exercising easily, which means my immune system is prepping up to go after a foreign invader, instead of my joints. Then, the next day, I started to ache a little, got dizzy, and started to sniffle and then it went to my inner ears :ph34r: and I thought, oh well, glad I didn't have anything really planned for the holidays. For the New Year's thing I just took a bottle of my own low sugar agave sweetened soda and a baggie of nuts to munch on. Everybody thinks I have self control - yeah, but combine my known sensitivities with the fear of a latent flu reaction, and you have MOTIVATION. :lol:

    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?
