That is the stupidest idea I have ever heard.
Your symptoms will last longer for how much gluten you intake, don't eat more, you will get sick for longer, also, cheating will make you want to eat more and more gluten because you will be craving it more and more because you have been eating it more and more, so don't cheat, if you by ACCIDENT get gluten, just wait for those symptoms to end not make them worse. DON'T CHEAT

The thing is, if you're new to this whole thing, this sounds like a reasonable question. It's that "diet" word that throws people. Eddie, for me and my kids, this is how it worked. When first going gluten-free (and I mean within the first week) it didn't seem to make a difference whatever the amount of it accidentally eaten (it was a touchy first few weeks with my kids.) I'd even say that for the first few weeks, it didn't much matter. Now, however, that we've pretty much removed gluten from out diets (with the occasional accident) and have healed in some very visible ways, a little bit in my daughter, for instance, will have her throwing up in half an hour, but otherwise nothing else obvious (little = a bread crumb.) A lot of gluten, however, will have her throwing up, having intestinal cramps and major flu symptoms for 3-5 days (a lot = a bite of a cookie.) It really is a poison to us, even though that sounds so dramatic.
Good luck in working this out! I swear, it does get easier!

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
