Reaction Relevance To Damage?
Posted 25 January 2005 - 06:23 AM
I am a very fortunate Celiac I think, I don't have very strong reactions when I get "glutinated". On average if I get contaminated I will be on the toilet first thing in the AM for a bought of diarrhea. If I've got into something more, I may make two or three trips in the same day. Generally I think that is about it, although the more reading I do in this forum, the more I suspect that I may be having other minor symptoms that I've previously attributed to other things, like PMS and stress!
My question is.... is there any relation to the severity of reaction to the severity of damage in the intestine? Would a person who has a severe reaction have more damage to the intestine than one that has a mild one? Or does it work this way?
I look forward to hearing from all you experts!

Maybe I just spit better than you?
I suppose it could also be a contaminant in the batch you had?
Who's to know???

Then I realized that I was also feeling incredibly TIRED, and it was due to the gluten!
It's so nice to have energy again, and to not have to run to the bathroom 3/4 times a day, that I don't ever lapse.
I have called few manufacturers, but I have become familiar with what products are gluten free, and I always make sure to read labels.
