I thought that would get a lot of attention!
I have a serious question, not for you celiac3270 though, your too young to ask this of so stop reading!
Here's the serious part, I have been seeing a gentleman for a month or so. I have not been ill in quite a long time. Since Wednesday night I have been really sick and can't seem to trace it to anything I ate.
This guy does drink beer and we do kiss although not french kissing so far. :) ( I know I am a little old fashioned.)
Does anyone know if it's a posibillity that I could somehow be getting the gluten into my body through this? And if so what are the alternatives?
He seems to drink one or two beers everytime we are together.
Thanks for your replies!

Yep that is a way for gluten to get into your system. If he drinks something with gluten in it and then its on his lips and mouth and then he kisses you then you can get traces(its definitely worse with french kissing obviously)
Does he know you have celiac? If so, could you ask him to drink something that you know is gluten free? I'm sure he will understand if he is a guy worth your time...if not he can take a hike :lol:
Anyway, you should take away any chance you can have of getting glutened.

I tell you though kissing can definitely be a problem with getting glutened though.I was glutened that way and I couldn't figure out what was causing it until I finally made the link. Once that problem was taken care of I got better.

Also, if there is anything else you can think of that may have glutened you then you may want to go back and look at that as well.

Thanks Kaiti
I just can't imagine what has made me sick for so many day's. I have been over and over everything I have eaten and there is nothing new. It's the only other thing I can think of. I suppose I will have to mention it to him and see what his reaction is, it's not worth feeling this bad! :blink:

My husband and I used to both be big beer lovers, and after I was diagnosed he (of course) continued to drink beer. However we were afraid to kiss if he had had a beer or two, so as a solution he switched to Woodchuck cider. That way we can both have a drink together, and I don't have to worry about gluten. He actually really likes the cider too, so it hasn't been a hardship for him or anything.

No kissing my hubby for me after a beer or a wheatie meal. When he indulges, I call him Wheatabix and we don't kiss. He ate Seitan (pure gluten and what an appropriate name- sounds like Satan) last weekend in NYC and I swear I wouldn't kiss him on the mouth for days! Beverly (Actually, sometimes I forget and he remembers and won't let ME kiss him- it's cute!)

my husband and I have a "no kissing rule" if he has been eating gluten stuff (he doesn't drink beer any more) until he has thoroughly brushed his teeth and rinsed his mouth out... I've gotten too sick from this on too many occasions

Just explain to your gentleman friend that you want to kiss him and you don't want to make him stop enjoying his beer, but if he could drink something else gluten-free while you are together OR just make sure he brushes teeth and rinses his mouth before kissing you... if he doesn't want to be bothered with this then you don't need him in your life, but if you are important to him, he will understand and make this SMALL change if he wants to keep kissing you! Also if he has been eating gluten stuff too, make him brush his teeth and rinse his mouth out!!!! Seriously! NO CRUMBS!!!!! LOL!

No question is silly especially when it comes to your health. I was upfront when I started dating my husband and he has been understanding from day one. He likes his beer and bread products and won't let me kiss him on the mouth until he's sure he won't contaminate me. We dated for two years and were married a short time ago. You have to be up front with this disease, I mean, if you were diabetic or something people were more aware of you wouldn't hesitate to mention it would you?
