Hi all, It's been 14 years since I was diagnosed as a celiac. I have strictly followed the gluten free diet since then. I've also smoked on and off, and have tried several times to switch to electronic cigarettes (vaping). I have been unsuccessful though, as every time I try it I get an INSTANT reaction that is identical to being glutened. I've done my research and can't find any information or accounts of celiacs being glutened by vaping. There are three main ingredients in the vape juice - propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG) and 'flavoring'. PG and VG are apparently naturally gluten free, so flavoring is where you'd expect the issue to lie. But I've tried plain PG only and plain VG only (also with no nicotine) and I get the same gluten reaction every time. Does anyone else have this issue?
I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free. It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
Minimaschola posted a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsHas anyone had reactions from Melaleuca's Access Exercise bars? I loved these bars and they are listed on their website under "gluten-free" but I have been getting reactions from them even after eating nothing else to try and identify the source of my reactions. (My immediate reactions are the churning in the gut about 1 to 2 hours after eating which results in loose stools/diarrhea along with a grogginess and intense sleepiness later in the day) I have tried to search on the internet for other's experiences but have been unsuccessful. Thanks for sharing!
Good morning, I'm often on this site as a guest, but rarely post (I can't remember if I've every actualy posted...). Anyway, I've really appreciated all of the information that I've obtained here. Thank you to everyone who contributes! Here's my question... I'm 29 years old and was diagnosed with Celiac disease 2 years ago after a lifetime of one auto-immune disorder after another. Since going gluten free, I've had several accidental gluten exposures due to cross-contamination. I've learned over time what I need to be more careful about and am pretty good about it now. However, I was "glutened" at restaurant about a month ago and am *still* experiencing symptoms (sharp stomach pains, swollen/painful joints - including in my chest [my least favorite], brain fog is slowly getting better, etc.). Is this normal??? I feel like my reactions get longer and more severe the longer I'm away from gluten. I'm wondering if this is normal or if I should be trying to find another source of exposure/other way to solve my problems. Thank you so much for your help! Jennifer
