If You Were Offered $100K To Eat A Piece Of Bread/cake/scroll/croissant Would You Go For It?

See, I'd do it because I don't suffer from seizures or anything that severe. I've been a celiac for 7 years now and on my worst glutening I deal with severe abdominal pain and D but no seizures. If I had that type of reaction, I wouldn't do it either!

I'm sure they'd be more than happy to film it in the pot if you asked them to... You might even get paid a bit extra if you're lucky... ;)

Well, now, don't I feel like a cheap w****? While I don't think $150 would be worth feeling like cr@p for the next 24 hours, I think $500 would get my attention. But only if I get to pick the day and clear my schedule first.

Of course, I wouldn't like that to be my steady income or anything :).

You're very fortunate if your reactions only last for 24 hours. Mine last a week at minimum, up to two weeks. And the last time I had a large amount of gluten on accident I ended up getting brochitus which turned into pnuemonia, requiring several pricey breathing treatments at Urgent Care, chest x-rays, consult with a pulmonologist, etc. I was sick for 3 months because of a restaruant mistake. Even if I were in need of the money and decided to do this I would require that they also sign a contract that they are responsible for paying any medical bills incurred. But even then I just can't see giving up my dignity (in allowing them to film my suffering) for some money.

Sure! It might not be fun for a few weeks but eventually it would pass.

Heck yeah. I'd enjoy my delicious pain au chocolat (that's what I'd eat for sure), earn enough to pay for any further schooling I want to pursue, and they'd get... a six or seven hour video of me passed out, probably snoring.

Sounds fair to me!! :D

I would love to have a 100k at the moment but I am so terrified of developing some other autoimmune condition or disease that I'm not sure i could get myself to do it. Although, I wouldn't recommend people do it maybe it would be a good PSA or something to show the rest of the world what gluten does to us. I know most of my family members use to not take my celiacs very seriously until they saw me get sick from some cross contamination. After that little incident they took it a lot more seriously. So maybe it would get good to get a gluten reaction on film for everyone else to see.

nope, not for a million dollars. No amount of money is worth the pain.

A friend of mine has made the following statement:

What do you think? Would you eat something laden with gluten so that you could earn a certain amount of money?

I understand that there are some very sick people in the world................ but surely no one is so sick as to want to pay for the pleasure of seeing someone violently ill from eating gluten........surely there are other ways these people can be entertained.

    • I_would_widen_the_search_to_your_whole_environment.....Carefully_consider_what_else_was_different_when_you_felt_better.
    • Thanks a lot for your advice and the link. I will surely check upon GCED. But, doesn't a negative HTTG (can't do IgA ttg as IgA deficiency) result mean that I am not exposed to gluten ? 
    • Thank you for going through my long post and responding. I have been both dairy and gluten-free free for 10 months now. Yes, even I was worried about other food allergies. I mentioned it to my GI doc and asked if I need food allergy test to eliminate other allergens. He said, food allergy tests give a lot of false positives and are not accurate. He said: not everything is because of food allergy and it's refractory celiac which is causing issues as the jejunum biopsy, done recently, is showing villous flattening.

      My doubt: 1. If I have so much damage in my small intestine (villous flattening) then how was I keeping fine for 6-7 months ( eating eggs, soy, rice and meat) - was constantly losing weight though - but was able to work out regularly - not much fatigue. 2. If it is other food allergens ( out of mentioned allergens, I take eggs, soy chunks, almonds only) why does it happen only few times and not always - I keep well for 7-8 days and then fall sick again - this without any change in diet.  
    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!
