eating gluten by accident: from amz on 2008-01-03

With CD, I have been on a very strict diet for nearly 2 months and did respond well to going gluten free. Most of my symptons were easing off, especially the stomach upsets!! However, I was trying to be so careful over the festive period but following either overindulgence in eating out and a few more drinks than i would have during my normal working week, I've suffered from a terrible flare up of symptons and feel terrible.



I'm desperate for some advice with regards to what should or can I do to try and get back to a normal self?? I start back teaching on Mon and can't afford to still be running to the loo

People on a gluten-free diet suffer viral and bacterial stomach upsets just like anyone else. However you are more likely to suffer from the effects of excess alcohol.
You should make sure that you stick to your diet, and avoid any irritants like peppers, curry, tea, coffee and alcohol.
Make sure that you drink plenty of fluids.
In case it is a viral infection you should avoid returning to school for 48 hours after the symptoms have cleared up.

I take probiotics to stop a gluten or gluten-like reaction. I get them from any pharmacy here in the U.S., in the vitamin aisle.

I recently discovered that I am having a reaction to soy flour. Taking 1 or 2 probiotics stops the gas formation in short order!

Good luck!
