Dumb question here Ö does eating gluten necessarily trigger symptoms? I eat cereal, bagels etc. regularly, but I donít feel sick after eating them. Wondering if I have celiac disease anyway because I have intestinal problems, mainly constipation and gas, that have been getting worse, but gluten doesnít seem to trigger a reaction. Also, I recently developed a sensitivity to certain foods since getting a bad stomach virus in December. Iím also having major infertility problems and Iím only 32. Could all these things be linked?? Thanks for your info!

Hi goddess,

Gluten can have a delayed reaction in some people of a few hours, days, weeks or even months. Although some people know within minutes if they have had gluten this is not always the case. All the symptoms you described could be caused by Celiac Disease. In my opinion it would be a good idea to be tested for it.

God bless,

Another thing to consider is that, if you are regularly eating these foods, you're essentially regularly feeling a bit sick (since you note the intestinal issues). "Feeling sick" after ingesting gluten doesn't mean you feel like you have a cold, or necessarily that you feel nauseous. It's different for all of us. But if you've been in that state for so long, you sort of get used to how it feels, and you don't notice a bit more gluten going into your system. It won't hurt to get tested.
