Before I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I had no symptoms ever.
Yesterday I ate two slices of papa john's pizza. I had a slight stomach discomfort, but overall everything was fine.
I was just interested to see exactly what would happen.
Obviously, I am going to stay on my strict diet.

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!

Do realize that cheating monthly puts your risk of developing intestinal cancers and other autoimmune diseases and dying early right back up to that of untreated celiacs.
i've tested myself with everything imaginable almost, to see how much pain I feel and how long I suffer for depending on how much I ate..keep a log of it..so that when I do have my monthly cheat, I know what to stay away from..

And Lisa....if you're eating gluten once a month, then the gluten-free diet is doing very little good for your body, anyway. Eating just the tiniest bit of gluten completely offsets the progress you've made during that month. The only positive thing is that there is less gluten entering your system, but it will still cause the same long-term symptoms: osteoporosis, cancers, etc. so it's not worth it!
