Not Eaten Gluten In 4 Years . . . Is It Safe To Now Eat Gluten Again

Posted by Posterboy, 28 January 2014 · 751 views

I was/had been gluten free for 4 years.

I have heard that (maybe urban myth) that gluten doesn't bother me anymore.

How do I know gluten is bothering me again before it is too late?

I am still regular even when I ingest gluten accidently or can't resist cheating.

All I can think is my gluten allergy has gone away.

Is this possible? Or am I just pressing my luck for I relapse in to gluten sensitivity again,

Why don't you post this question in the forum? Maybe explain how or if you were diagnosed and a little history? This is the blog section and people don't usually answer questions over here. It Is really meant for blog entries.

Kareng,

 

I had just answered the question does vilous atrophy heal J. Podi.

 

See my profile.

 

I want to know could I be in remission and I didn't think the moderator would let me post something that might be considered heretical thinking.

 

I have no symptoms that last more than the two weeks medically speaking that is defined as diarrhea or constipation.

 

It just medical science doesn't understand why I no longer have symptoms.

 

If I am right that it is possible and I am not out of mind then my Gluten Sensitivity is in remission! 

 

I wanted to see if any one else had tried gluten after letting their villi heal.

 

30+ year sufferer before diagnosis and have been eating gluten cautiously for 40+ months after being gluten free for 4 years.

No, you cannot eat gluten if you have celiac disease.  It is a life long thing to avoid gluten.  It is well this way anyway, because you can be healthy!

Short Answer is no.  I have celiac disease and I also do not know when I am glutened.  However I still had other less noticeable symptoms like anemia.  You cannot just "get over" celiac disease or a gluten intolerance.  Damage can go very slowly in some cases, and you would slowly poison yourself until you are back to square one. 

 

Head over to the top bar of the site and click on "forums" then go to the "Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)" category and click the "start new topic" blue button near the top right of the topic list.  You will get more input and help there.

Probably not a good idea, but if you do try it just go with a very small quantity and keep it simple so you can measure the effects.

Road/Way Back Timeline

 

Dear Gluten Intolerant,

 

This is not something I have arrived at easily, or accidently I believe but by the grace of God.

 

I think it is important to give you a time line of sorts for my gluten problems.

 

After 35+ years of not having a definitive diagnosis when I got the Celiac Diagnosis (which I prompted my doctor to check for) I studied diligently from the day I was confirmed serology 30 days later with a dramatic drop in my antibodies (though as you probably know) began feeling better within in weeks.

 

The doctor didn’t have to tell me what my body already knew!

 

That was 7+ years ago and my journey to health began that day.

 

After 3 years of reading any and everything I could about celiac disease I began to realize I might not have Celiac disease at all but an old but now seemingly forgotten disease (with similiar symptoms following the established medical protocol of a differntial diagnosis method . . . think the TV show House where they take a week or a month (in on hour of coure) to determine IF not this disease then what disease does he/she have) and that a vitamin deficiency/dependency (read about Functional Medicine) might be the real cause of my problems.  The primary problem resulting in a gluten ravaged GI as the 2ndary symptoms.

 

I am writing this blog about that opus if anyone will listen. I hope you will consider what I say and the Lord lead thee in understanding 2 Tim 2:7.

 

I have been helping my friends for a couple of years now (those (the few) that listen) with 90pct success rate from GERD and other GI distress because STRESS has set the body against itself.  Is peace possible (digestively speaking)? 

 

May be? if it a vitamin deficiency like beri beri, or scurvy or ricketts is?

 

All complex disease pathways triggered by a single nutrient.  Could the GI rest on a simliar cornerstone?

 

If you are yourself a fellow sufferer I can tell you what signs to look to tell if you are now safely digesting gluten in to harmless peptides.

 

I will just say as a word of thought.  A healthy baby burps? Right . . . well a healthy adult should too!

 

Do you burp (not soda’s) but do you burp when you eat/drink (even water) burp like a baby if not you will have distension, pain, diarrhea, constipation like a baby who has colic who sufferers from undigested food because their systems can’t handle proteins yet.

 

What is Gluten and or Lactose even but proteins that some people's digestion system struggle with digesting.

 

The question really is why is someone’s or other people’s GI system strong enough to digest gluten and yours’ is not.

 

This bloq is about that question.

 

Hopefully you and others’ will believe and be helped as I have been.

 

It is a new way of thinking about the problem. Low Acid and its cause(s) Stress!

 

In 6 months’ time I can have you burping like a baby (if you do not already) or one of your friends’ who have a gluten intolerance or lactose intoerance (if what I say is true) a prophet in a sense of being able  to tell you in the future what will/can happen IF you do as I suggest.

 

Such as begin burping for the first time in years and years and years if you don’t NOW already burp when you drink water or eat something/anything.

 

Like I say in another place like a cow chews cud . .. after every meal.  The burp is our cud metaphorically speaking.

 

It is not magic . . . just a different or hopefully the right way of thinking about it if indeed what I say is right and in 6 months you are burping REGULARLY you will be once a day regular (and your stool will sink to the bottom).

 

. . . . this is not the end of the road but the beginning.

 

It will take at least a year for you/their confidence to return and maybe considerably longer to actually try gluten again but I am not suggesting that they/you try gluten only that if you/they are accidently glutened when OUT outside the home you/they will be protected.

 

Posterboy,

…………………………………

 

P.S.  FYI after 3 years of a steady even digestion cycle of once a day movement and regular burping . . .  I now no longer get glutened by background gluten when the waiter messes up my food.

 

I can occasionally cheat on/with gluten . . . a bit here . . . a bit there on the weekends with no upset.

 

Now 4+ years into my remission and I am STILL amazed that this is even possible.
