What Happens If You 'backslide'

I have been doing my best to conciously avoid gluten since Jan 01, and its starting to pay off. This past Saturday night, I was socialising, and had quite few beers before I realised they were a no no. They loosened me up enough to have some gluten snacks.

I am back on the wagon now, but was this a major setback in terms of hurting my system, or not so bad. Today,(Tuesday) I feel OK and the belly has gone back to softening up and not being as distended. Thanks

It's a process - don't worry about it. Stay on the wagon and good luck!

I did that in November. I was on vacation and feeling great for the first time in forever (I had been under a TON of stress at work, and being in an awesome hotel on the beach just melted it all away). We were there for a wedding and were feeling pretty good when we got back to the hotel - someone ordered a pizza and I just couldn't help myself. The next day, I decided "well since I already did that, might as well have a breakfast sandwich too"!! It was fantastic, but I paid for it. I don't have a lot of GI symptoms...but the week after I got back from vacation, I was exhausted, anxious, depressed, muscles hurt, etc. Took almost 3 weeks to feel better and I still don't feel as good as I did before I did that to myself. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm sure we've all been there once or twice. But we all have to think about the bigger picture too...even if we don't FEEL bad after eating gluten, doesn't mean it's not doing it's damage. One day at a time right?? :)

If you're gluten intolerant I doubt you did any harm, other than the short-term effects. If you're celiac every time you consume gluten you give your body the opportunity to develop different auto-antibodies. We tend towards autoimmunity and gluten really seems to boost the process. :(

Just keep on trying. The diet really does take some getting used to.

I just did that today lol. I have been doing so well lately on my diet, Been gluten free for 3 years but have had some setbacks every now and then. Well I was out running errands and one of the grocery stores was selling Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. They looked so delicious, soft, chocoately. I wanted one so bad. I picked up the box ad put it down multiple times before finally walking away.....Only to walk back by the stand 10 minutes later on my way to check out and picked up the box :/ and ate one in the car on my way home. Now an hour later my tummy is distended, cramping, nausea, belly ache, GI issues, etc. Was it worth it?? NOPE!!! and I am so mad that I did that when I was doing so well, but it happens and I will pay for it for awhile but do my best not to fall back into temptation of yummy doughnuts lol

Kinnikinnick makes chocolate-covered gluten-free donuts. :) There is very little I would want to eat that I can't find gluten-free. It makes it much easier.

Not a fan of their doughnuts. Too cake-like and I have never been a fan of cake-like doughnuts... No more Krispy Kreme for me though, threw the box away when I got home lol

Keep trying good gluten-free brands until you're less tired and can bake your own. You'll just stay hypo and tired if you cave in and eat gluten - but you know that. :P I prefer Rudi's or Schar to Udi's.

I personally love UDIS bread, I live on their products. To me it tastes like the real thing. My cousin loves Rudi's Bread though and it is quite tasty as well. Hope you find a bread you love. I used to love hot warm loaves of bread and do still miss them, but keep trying and you will find a replacement you love.

When you get to a point where you can handle making something, the King Arthur gluten-free mixes are good. You can make a loaf, then slice and freeze so you can have it on hand. It's not the same as gluten bread, but it's pretty good in my opinion. I also like Namaste bread mix. They're easier than making your own, and they come out reliably well.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
