I just RECENTLY went gluten free. I'm on day 5.

Overall, I feel better. I have a LITTLE bit more energy. BUT, I think that there might be gluten in maybe my vitamins. I've taken them the last two days and I get the big D almost right after taking them (maybe 20-30 mins) When I take my vits I take on an empty stomach and then eat right after taking so that they metabolize. It's the only time all day i've had the D so I know or am assuming the other foods are agreeing with me okay.

Also, i still drink Coke (I don't like coffee in the a.m., just a coke! NOT diet). Could it be something in that? I can have coke other times of the day and I don't get D.

Or is it still too early to tell if something is glutening me?

All coke and pepsi products are gluten-free. Yes, your vitamins could have wheat and gluten in them call the company and find out.

Now on symptoms it is not only different for different people but I find how much gluten and type make a difference. Some I know in 5-10 minutes and others like this last huge horrifying incident it took 12 hours and I have reacted up to two days later. However, as being gluten-free the longer you are gluten-free the more violent the reactions could be when you get glutened. When you were eating gluten it was a constant now you are not your system may react more violently, mine sure does.

I've only been gluten free for four months now and have had two episodes. Both eating out. :ph34r: The first time (about one month into gluten-free living), I ate dinner about 7 p.m. and was awoken at 1 a.m. with D and dizzyness. The second time was last weekend (I ordered steak tacos and didn't notice that they were marinated in terriyaki sauce--duh!!!) and my stomach started acting up within a half hour. Unfortunately, I had just started watching that movie "Pusuit to Happyness" when my stomach started pursuing sheer misery :huh: Needless to say, my husband had to fill in a lot of blanks for me with that movie!

For me the time is getting less and less and the symptoms more intense the longer I follow the gluten-free diet!

Just remember that it took your body some time to be damaged by gluten and it will take some time to heal. Some people here have felt feel better very soon after going gluten free. It took me about six month.

On occasion, when I get glutened the brain fog and the shakes begin first. I feel very flumbly. About 24 hours later, the acid D begins. It take about three day to fully recover from an accidental gluten.

But, every one reacts differently.

I get bloated almost right away and the pain and nausea sets in anywhere from 2-36 hours later.

just thought i should tell you coke itself is a Diarrheic particularly if you drink a litre or more a day.

i felt a noticeable difference within days but a significant difference after 2-3weeks gluten free.
