Beer And Kissing

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!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

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?

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      I am also IgA deficient. My doc took more blood and looked at 2-3 other markers in the blood work , transglutinase, and 2 others. My biopsy showed blunted cilia in sm intestine, but my IgA was low. He suspected Celiac due to cilia so ordered other blood tests. I also presented atypically, burny stomach and reflux...and very little else.
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      If you have Celiac Disease, and you are IgA deficient, what do they check on your labs to make sure you are not being "glutened"?
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi again Richie, A lot of coeliacs have a problem with coffee, maybe you do too. It could explain the shakes you describe. I am sensitive to coffee, and haven't touched caffeine since last summer. (The detox lasted for 10 days and it wasn't pleasant, so if you ever give it up, do it gradually).  Sometimes when you're intolerant to something, when you have it, it makes you feel 'better' but it doesn't last and usually end up worse, it's like a drug - and in the case of caffeine it is. I also take a daily probiotic (gluten free and dairy free etc)., which is good for healing the gut.
    • Weird Reaction
      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.  
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      You are doing well.  We didn't have a "normal" tTG for 6 years and were also very strict.  Kiddo was dx with hypothyroid as well and tTG fell a lot after getting on meds for that but still didn't normalize.  Finally cam down within the last 6 months (this after a trip to THE Celiac Dr. several years ago).  I wish we had done a DGP much earlier and I had pushed for that sooner.  I would start there and see what happens.     Sounds like you're doing everything right though. Sometimes it just takes time.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
