I am new to the "Celiac club". I am wondering does every celiac have such bad reactions to small amounts of gluten.
I am fortunate, my disease was found before much intestinal damage had occurred and I never really had bad illness with it. Although, who knows maybe my reaction just was not gastro...I do have IC.
Anyway, as I wade through all the information I just started to wonder if some Celiacs may get a small amount of gluten and not have such a strong reaction. One can always hope...
It's been 2 1/2 years since my diagnosis. 20 years undiagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. My biopsy showed "severe" damage. I feel much better, but I doubt my intestines will ever be the same. The longer I'm off the gluten, the more sensitive I become. ANY CC will get me. Just happened at Ted's Montana Grill on Saturday, even though I ordered the most basic of meals from their gluten-free menu.
You'll learn to know your body and you'll observe each time you've been glutened and when it's something else.
BTW, for you Italians that are eating at Olive Garden....SHAME! LOL
