About a week ago I went and got my hair done. I took two Glutenease right before I went in. I got my hair colored, cut and styled. No limitations on products, just whatever she normally used (plenty of wheat and oats in the ingredients, of course).

To make it especially interesting, I ended up with my hair in my mouth while she was blow-drying it, with about three different products on it. Pfftht... It was my fault. I had to open my big mouth to say something while she was blow-drying. :rolleyes:

By the time I got home I could tell I was having a bad reaction. You know how you get a worse reaction from actually getting a good amount of gluten rather than cross-contamination? Well, this was a pretty bad reaction. I've only gotten a bad reaction 3 or 4 times since being gluten-free, and this was up there with the worst.

When I get my hair done, I've only gotten cross-contamination before. I'll usually get a mild to moderate reaction.

I waited until I was home for about an hour so I could make sure it wasn't my imagination and it really was a reaction. Then I took another Glutenease, not expecting much because it hadn't helped stop it from happening in the first place. But it actually worked. A half hour later I was feeling much better.

- My hands had already been breaking out and just got a little red for a couple days.

- I was about ready to just crawl in bed and go to sleep, and I wasn't tired anymore.

- When I got back I was really pissed because my haircut was nothing like what the picture looked like. After the glutenease I ratcheted down to irritated. :P

- The insides of my ears got swollen and irritated feeling, that went away completely.

- I didn't have any GI symptoms. I don't have a ton of GI symptoms usually, but was having a stomachache and nausea that slowly went away. No D, but I usually just get a touch of that the next day.

- Didn't get any hair loss, which usually happens the next day. Even when I've had mild CC and I'm not exactly sure if I'm glutened or just in a bad mood, I'll get sudden increased hair loss that lasts for a day or two.

- I usually get really bad mobility and pain problems and that didn't happen at all.

Basically, it seems to have stopped the glutening reaction that had already started. I wasn't sure if it would come back or not, so I wanted to wait until a few days had passed before I gave a review.

I didn't take any further glutenease other than the two before that apparently didn't do anything, and the one after. My reactions usually last a day or two for the main symptoms and then I don't feel like myself for about a week while I'm slowly feeling better. My skin reaction doesn't go away for about three weeks.

With the one post-glutening Glutenease, it seems to have stopped the reaction completely.

I'm SOOOO not encouraging people to take this in order to try and eat gluten. We have no idea if this product causes other health problems (like any of us need that in our lives...). We also have no idea if this just keeps the symptoms from occurring and the villi or neuro damage is still accummulating, or if there is a true cessation of damage.

Hi Nancy,

When I use this product I often find that I have to take more than two. Since the way you got the gluten was transdermal and thus going right into your bloodstream it would make some amount of sense that you may need more. When I travel and there is NOTHING for me to eat and I have to have some gluten I take 4. Of course this is the exception and only when I can't avoid it. I also noticed it has worked better over time- this could be the gut healing work I've been doing.

Many parents with Autistic kids use Glutenease and there are not side effects reported. It usually helps to heal the villi along with other gut healing enzymes and nutrients. Karen Defelice has done lots of work with this.

Here is a published article on DPP-IV:

There is another article in JAMA as well.

I can't believe i've never heard of this product before. I work in a restaurant and when i'm pms'ing, the only thing in the world that i want is a big plate of french fries. I know ours are pure potato, but they are not cooked in a dedicated fryer, but around that time of the month I usually snag a couple and hope for the best, which is usually just a minor reaction but worth it at the time. well last night i was starving and so busy and no time for food, and ate a giant plate of fries without even thinking about it first. well i'm sure it didn't help that i woke up a bit hungover this morning also, but what i felt was a whole lot more than a hangover. i feel like i want to leave work and crawl in a hole and die!!! if this stuff works, even to have on hand for gluten accidents (it happens) or makes the symptoms a little better after a mistake, then i will run, not walk, to the nearest health food store and buy a case full of the stuff. i'm sure my boyfriend would appreciate it too if my cranky miserable self that i am when i feel this way could do something about the symptoms other than just wait them out. has anyone else had any success with this? I wouldn't think of buying it to try to eat gluten, but for days like this when i've gotten glutened somehow or another and just want to feel better so i can get back to work and resume my life again

:blink:

    • Japan (Tokyo And Kyoto) Gluten Free
      i would  tend to agree with your mom and that comes from more than  30 years in and out of Japan. the  quality of the produce, meat and fish tends to be much better than the US  becsaue it gets to market  much faster and becasue there is a demand  for quality  above the demand for low price.  As it was pointed out, this  has  nothing to do with gluten.    There  are  alot of things you can  eat  in just about any restaurant  but there are things to learn like onigiri -- rice balls,  are seemingly innocent  but  90% of htem contain wheat starch.  most larger  grocery stores and  department store basements  you can  get  gluten free soy sauce. ---  most  chefs still assume that  soy sauce is soy  so never  take anyones  word for it when it comes to soy sauce. Of al the mixed  salads at  family mart, 7-11 and lawsons  only the gobo salad was  safe. good luck    
    • Gluten free backing food
      We are prepared for earthquakes at home, in our car and at work.  That means keeping tins of sardines, gluten-free cereal bars,  SPAM, nuts, chicken, fish, rice, etc. in our earthquake kits.  I have to go through it every three to four months to rotate out some of the foods (e.g. cereal bars).  I mark it in our planner.  It works for us.  Tasty?  Appetizing?  I bet my kid will be thankful to have food to eat in the event of an emergency.  
    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      How much fat are you consuming?  Going lower carb and not adding in fats can make you hungry.   So, do you know that Type 1 diabetes is strongly linked to celiac disease?    I would ask your doctor for a GAD antibodies test to rule out type 1.   https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/celiac disease-and-diabetes/ http://www.celiac.nih.gov/CDandDiabetes.aspx   I basically eat to my meter and that translates to a Low Carb High Fat diet.  Keeps my doctor happy with my lab results! 
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      VERY good point cyclinglady, very good point!!!!
    • Even gluten-free Foods Triggering Reaction After Initial Glutening?
      I was glutened in July.  Badly.  I have NO clue as to what got me.  I suspect two things 1) a gluten free store- brand, product that might have been mis-labeled and 2) a prescription generic medication (contacted the manufacturer to confirm a gluten-free status but got the old liability statement of no guarantees).  Both items were NEVER consumed by my gluten free hubby who acts as my canary.     I probably got glutened again by eating out while on vacation even though I only at at restaurants recommended by other celiacs.  The rest of the time I was at my parent's house and I have a dedicated kitchen there for us.   Who knows?  But I was sick with anxiety, tummy issues, vomiting, the works.  It was strange since anemia was my original symptom and I really did not have tummy issues at the time of my diagnosis.  So, celiac symptoms can evolve at least for me!  Six weeks after my first sign of a glutening, I was tested by my new GI because I was not getting well.  He thought I had SIBO or bile duct issues. I asked for celiac blood testing.    Turns out it was gluten all along!   During my glutening, I became lactose intolerant again, could only eat stewed foods because everything hurt to get through my digestive tract.   I was a basket case for three months.    Did I mention new problems resulting from my glutening?  Hives, itching, vomiting, passing out and tummy aches almost daily.  Anti-histamines helped.    My GP thinks I am her most "allergic" patient.  Except it was more like a histamine intolerance or a mast cell issue not allergies.   Who knows?  The hives eventually resolved as I healed from my glutening.    I refuse to test the two items that were suspect.    No way!    Three months later, I got dairy back.  Six months later I am eating gluten free anything....without any issues.  I also do not take any meds (except for Armour Thyroid) , supplements, eat out and I avoid even processed gluten-free items.  But, I feel great.     I suppose that I will eventually slip up and get glutened again.  But I am working hard not too.  I like feeling well.   So, really look to your diet.  I bet you just keep getting glutened.  Stick to whole foods, follow the FODMAP diet and wait.  Wait.  Wait.
