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?

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
