gluten-free Kitchen, But Hubbby Drinks Regular Beer
3 3

14 posts in this topic

Our household is gluten free, with the exception of hubby drinking regular beer. I've been gluten-free for about 1.5 years so I'm still sorting out how sensitive I am - and at this point, I think I have reacted to things like CC on deli meat from slicer (actual meat was gluten-free), accidental sip of 'real beer', etc.

 

I think I was recently CC'd by kissing my husband after he drank beer - is that crazy? Also wondering if glasses might be 'contaminated.'

 

Wondering if anyone has experience with this. He's been so supportive giving up wheat / gluten, etc. but he is a beer lover so I don't want to have to tell him that he can't drink beer in the house.

 

Thanks!

You can get CC by that.

Yep, no kissing the gluten eater, haha!  My husband is really sweet and will stop me. Maybe you can buy your husband a set of special beer pilsner glasses to drink from?  I want to say you can get them at a place like walmart or target in a set of 4 for under $25.

Might it be the glasses, or the sweet kisses?

 

Thanks all!

To clarify, yes you can get CC'd from kissing a gluten eater or beer drinker. Glass on the other hand, if washed, will not CC you. Just have him rinse the glasses when he's done with them, which is a good idea anyway so they're easier to clean. Of course, if he wants a nice (or cheap, whatever floats his boat) set of beer glasses then go for it. And my perspective is by far one of the most paranoid out there. I'm OCD and only just got my own kitchen I can make gluten free like 2 weeks ago. (YAY!!!!) But I also don't punish my husband because I have a stupid disease and let him bring a bakery cake home the other day and even eat it off my ceramic plates because we forgot to get him paper ones. I simply washed all the crumbs off them before I put them in the dishwasher. I'm really not the least bit worried, and I'm like the kid in the Sixth Sense. I see gluten CC everywhere. :ph34r:

My husband just drinks out of the bottles so I don't worry (beer the only gluten allowed in my house).

What about hand washing the glasses in an empty sink using a dedicated sponge or disposible rag. Then clean the sink after. That way no gluten can get on any other dishes or on a rag and spead to counters etc. I

As far as kissing, no kissing until he brushes his teeth. My husband eats gluten at work (actually has stuff to make sandwiches stocked up at work along with other gluten filled quick meals). So make sure he brushes his teeth after drinking beer and if he has ate gluten while he was out of the house.

Beer is about the only allowed gluten item in our home too.  My partner will drink the Omission beer which is gluten free when we can find it.  I've heard that it is good but I am not a beer drinker.    No kissing till the teeth are brushed!!!

I am glad I read this..... I had no idea that this would be an issue.  I have few symptoms and the ones I have aren't bad but I do have damage in my intestines so I am trying for it to heal and this was very interesting. Thanks!

I know this is an old post, but I thought I'd contribute- I am dealing with CC from kissing my boyfriend who drank regular beer a few nights ago... d'oh! I didn't even think about it until I couldn't sleep that night from burning toes/numb thumbs and the next morning being unable to walk/move my arms up... ugh! I think I will have to make a new "no beer in the house" rule :/ Sucks, man.

I get the rash, so I am a walking wheat sensor.  I have been glutened by both of kissing a spouse who eats wheat, and by running wheat exposed dishes through the dishwasher.  Dishwashers don't run continuous clean water.  They run a couple cycles of water, and splash the dirty water around for a while.  For most people's purposes, this is enough when combined with the high heat, to call them clean.  But I have had cases where the kids loaded the dishwasher badly, some of the glasses had been exposed, they didn't stay inverted, picked up dirty water spraying around, and harbored the wheat, which then spilled on everything when they flipped the glass to unload it.  And let me tell you that figuring out that was the source broke my brain with frustration.  I had to tell the family they had to use disposable dishes for wheat stuff, and take it outside to eat it to be safe.  And I have to ask spouse before kisses, if he's had wheat today.  It is super frustrating, but I really am that sensitive.

Running dishes through the dishwasher is perfectly safe . And they do not just splash dirty water around.

I've bee cc by kissing the husband. FYI to cap6 omission beer is a ?  It is barley beer treated with an enzyme that removes the gluten. A lot of online debate about it. And since we all differ in how sensitive we are, to me it's a ? Also, I put dishwashing sponges in dishwasher, drying cycle kills all funk I believe.

Welcome, Onepercenter!

That sponge in the dishwasher? Kills germs but it does not remove gluten.  Best to keep separate sponges.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
