Am coeliac, just realised I have eaten gluten today

... and have always wondered what the best thing to do is. Is it better to eat lots of prunes and get it through my system quickly? Or will that just make my symptoms worse? Am already feeling slightly dodgy... Any fellow coeliacs with ideas on what I should do? (Besides being more careful about what I eat in the first place! wink _

Some people reckon bananas are good for glutenation. Personally, I just drink plenty and take some ibuprofen for my joint pain.

Bad luck - what was it ?

Sausages at a friends house - I assumed she'd bought GF ones, but she'd forgotten I was coeliac (she usually remembers so I didn't interrogate her before eating). She suddenly realised after we'd eaten (suspect she is suffering more with mortification than I am with tummy ache!)

Will try bananas and a big glass of water.

I'm sure she is mortified. My mum once made a sauce with real flour (she normally uses GF even when I'm not around in white sauce as less lumps) and she's never forgiven herself.

Hope its not too bad
