Ok, as I tell more and more people about having Celiac, I keep getting the same question, and now I'm beginning to wonder: will cross contamination hurt me as much as eating a slice of pizza, or having bread? I know that any amount of gluten will do damage, but I'm wondering if the portion of gluten that is consumed has different affects?

For me, there is no question, the pizza will hurt much worse than accidentally eating small amounts of gluten.

This is an edumacated :blink: guess, so someone tell me if I'm right or wrong. If this is an autoimmune disorder, and our "soldiers" get sent out to fight off the "bad guy" they think gluten is, wouldn't less "soldiers" be needed for less amount of bad guys? And vice versa? With as efficient as our body is, I can't imagine our body mounting the same counter attack on a cold that it would for, say, hepatitis. I don't know, maybe our body always sends out the same amount of soldiers when there's gluten detected, and the offensive is taken against the lining of the small intestines. I guess we need a scientist in here!

I don't know because I haven't purposely eaten any gluten since going gluten-free... BUT, I can say that when I get cc, I have very real, icky symptoms. I can't imagine eating a whole piece of pizza!!! Yikes! SO, I guess the answer is: You will never know because you can not eat the pizza!! :blink: Right??? Getting cc is bad enough...

from what I know, yes there might be fewer antibodies produced with "less" gluten, but the auto-immune system is being activated either way, and damage is being done. I try to prevent all "reactions" from occurring.

In case any of you are wondering, I'm not going to go out and get a slice of pizza to see the reaction. As tempting as it may be working in NYC and having so many great pizza places around, I wouldn't do that to my body intentionally - ever. Getting glutened by CC is bad enough.

All I know is that CC will cause me to be sick for days. I have not eaten anything that I knew to have gluten since my Dx, nor do I have any urge or temptation to do so--so I really don't know if the reaction would be the same. :)

I read that there is a new pizza joint in NYC with gluten-free pizza AND gluetn-free beer!! I've thought about coming all the way up (2 hours) just for that!!

Hi Carrie,
as a fellow NY'er who loves pizza (what Nyer doesn't?)
i am very excited to tell you the name of the place is
Risotteria
http://www.risotteria.com/
it's on bleeker - i work in midtown - not too convenient for a quick lunch

so I haven't been there myself (i'm only gluten free since 1/1/6), but i look forward to trying it soon.

funnily enough, i posted the same comparison as you did. pizza vs a speck. i guess NYers just see life as with a slice or without. i hope that place makes it not so black and white
