I have only gotten sick when I've obviously eaten gluten, when I tried to eat a hamburger with the bun, I got sick the next day. About a month or 2 later, I ate a burrito that had a flour shell, and got sick next day. I seem to get over it w/in about 4 days if I immediately go back to gluten-free diet, then I'm fine. I don't pay attention to shampoos , soaps, or my dog's food or anything, so I don't think I'm hyper-sensitive to it which is good I guess.

Gee, I'm sorry to hear that any of you have symptoms at all. Both my husband and I are gluten-free! Funny neither of us knew we were gluten sensitive when we met. Anyway, I seem to be okay with distilled vodka and vinegars. But I can not have a single piece of gluten touch my plate otherwise I will have a mild wheeze for many hours and then it changes my stool for at least 5 days! Although the other day I tried a gluten-free soy spray and wheezed! I haven't had a problem with soy before, maybe it was the amino acids in the product?????

DOG BISCUITS: I can relate to the dog biscuit scenario because I had to start using rubber gloves when handling both dog food and dog biscuits. However I never gave myself the opportunity to have a reaction. BTW, there are now wheat-free dog foods and dog biscuits!!!!!!!!!

My husand doesn't seem to have any reaction to alcohol or vinegars. However, he will feel lousy when contaminated through other means.

I seem to have become more sensitive since being on the gluten-free diet. I bloat and my stomach starts hurting within 15 minutes after I consume gluten. The severe symptons last for approximately six hours and then I have diarrhea for several days. Most of the time this happens after eating in a restaurant. Sometimes I also have a problem with vodka. I try to drink only rum or wine. :D

I have absolutely no symptoms, and had none before going on the diet. I could probably eat an entire pizza and feel fine. But, I still have the disease and have to keep strictly to the diet.

I have no symptoms and never had. I was only dx (conclusively) less than a week ago. My sister has celiac disease so I got screened, scoped and I have it too. I could eat anything and feel fine, but I am going to do my best to keep to the diet my body demands.
