What Is The Severity Of Your Reaction To Gluten?

22 June 2012 - 08:24 PM

Hello, I'm new to this site :)

I am 17 years old, and have been gluten-free for a little over 2 years (wow, I didn't realize it has been this long). I have a younger cousin, 3 years my junior, who has Celiac and Juvenile Insulin-Dependent Diabetes. She has been gluten-free for about 5 years now. When she eats gluten, she doesn't get sick at all (in fact, she cheats all the time. *jealousy* :/ ). However, when I slip up, I am ridden with crippling pain, and do not feel better for atleast 6 hours. My reaction has always seemed very severe, and I was wondering, how bad are your reactions?
