How Long After Being "glutened" Do You Get Symptoms?
0

6 posts in this topic

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.

    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.
