caffeine will not cause a celiac reaction. but, due to it's effects on the nervous system (which is very important in the digestive system), it can cause stomach problems, nausea, and digestive trouble all on it's own.

but there's a whole lot in that drink besides caffeine. what else is is in there?

Maybe your energy drink isn't gluten free. What else is in it?

If you are really gluten free I don't think you would get symptoms. Some people say they have to avoid shampoos etc that have gluten ingredients also. Have you checked all your vitamins, medications, all the food you are eating and everything you are drinking? Two weeks in there is a good chance you are not really gluten free. That stuff can be hidden in many many places. Wooden bowls, wooden spoons, toasters, etc. I think a good way to start gluten-free is eating all home cooked whole foods with simple spices like plain salt and black pepper. NO processed foods in boxes or cans at all. If you pick up an onion the ingredient list is not a mystery to read and decipher. Same with taters etc. So it can makes things simpler and less stressful at first since you don't need to learn all those hidden gluten terms at once.

I don't have dh myself, but I can't do coffee or tea. They do quite a number on me in other ways.

if you can handle the label reading on the basic condiments, then sure. but you can NEVER assume that something does or does not have gluten. you can NEVER assume that just because something used to be gluten free, it still is. you ALWAYS have to read the label, and know what EVERY ingredient's gluten status is.

I've been gluten free since Dec. I have become very sensitive to caffeine just in the last month. It makes my heart beat too fast and I get the shakes. Weird how I'm becoming more and more sensitive the things that didn't bother used to bother me.
