  1. Eating a lot of fat can also give you digestive woes. Chips and cheese and pizza and more chips could do it. I get loose stools when I eat lots of raw vegetables, and those certainly don't contain gluten. (I've also personally never had an issue with any of the flavored chips even if they...
  2. It is entirely possible that your apple touched residue from the pop tart and caused your symptoms. Right after I "got better" but was still figuring things out I ordered a burger and removed the bun. There was no visible residue on the burger. I still had symptoms (albeit mild ones) after. A...
  3. I'm sure it's possible to have a kind of physiological reaction from the resentment one feels about other people eating things they can't have. I know I had a terrible reaction every time I had to walk to work in the cold because my mom had stolen my car and wouldn't give it back. (Made worse...
  4. It's not really saying that their chips aren't gluten free. It's saying that corn isn't necessarily gluten free. Corn. Not *their* corn. Corn in general. That's really just the reality of farming and grains. And of cooking, where you're not going to be producing and testing large batches...
  5. I've had that before, but it's usually part and parcel with a "colitis flare" (scare quotes because I haven't had a real colitis flare of that nature in the last five years that wasn't gluten-related). Honestly, going to the bathroom several times within minutes of eating was plenty bad, but...
  6. Let me tell you a funny story. I had been gluten-free for years when I developed terrible, painful heartburn. Nothing seemed to work to make it go away. I tried pills and dietary changes, but my esophagus kept burning. Once or twice the acid even went up into my nose. A few months...
  7. I would say that for me it can be 24-48 hours before I have a reaction, and its proportionate to the exposure. (More exposure is a faster, more violent reaction.) There needs to be time for the food to digest. But you could also get diarrhea from eating too much of something that doesn't...
  8. I haven't had a reaction to them. I'm extremely sensitive to gluten but have no issues with gluten-free oats.
  9. You know what absolutely kills me? Fresh fruit and veg. I tried eating more fruits and veggies, but the result was diarrhea every couple of days. I eventually had to cut back because I was tired of feeling terrible. My point is just that you can think you're being "good" and "healthy...
  10. It's usually between 1 and 2 days (more than 24 hours but less than 48) in my case. I haven't knowingly ingested any gluten-containing product since late 2009, but I can usually tell I've gotten some CC from a restaurant if I start spotting a day or two later. I take birth control for another medical...
  11. Personally, I just don't like the Udi's frozen pizzas. Every time I've bought them, they end up burned on the edges and raw in the middle. I was never able to find the magic combination of temperature and cooking time, so I gave up. But they've never given me a reaction. (Gluten makes my...
  12. Many years ago when I was first diagnosed with UC, I read about people drinking worm eggs. It was a treatment you could get in Europe, but not in the US. And I have to admit that I was pretty jealous. It really seemed to bring relief to people, and meanwhile I was trying everything available to...
  13. I've been working my way through a box of regular Cheerios (my favorite) and I've had some vague symptoms that could be CC or could be "I'm eating more greens and grains than before." (I told you they were vague.) They're symptoms I get from CC for sure, but more of "someone touched a tortilla...
  14. I ate there once recently. It was my first time going there since cutting out gluten. By the way, this is going to be TMI. I had chili cheese fries and a chocolate shake. A few hours later I had to run to the bathroom, and the fries came out looking like fries. It was the weirdest damn...
  15. I think it's important to remember that these are frozen items, so they might not get rotated out of the freezer case as quickly as a shelf item would. That said, I've tried a few and they're decent. The ranchero beef was pretty good, and so was the barbecue chicken with cheesy potatoes. ...
