Accidentally Ate Gluten

16 August 2014 - 08:59 AM

Last night I accidentally ate a small amount of gluten.  My brother was preparing dinner and mistakenly used orzo (100% wheat flour) instead of arborio rice for risotto.  This was an honest mistake and by no means was he trying to "gluten" me.  I took one bite and knew instantly that it wasn't rice.  I swallowed maybe a few noodles and spit out the rest. I took some activated charcoal immediately.  I felt bloated and had stomach cramps last night.  This morning I feel a little groggy, but not like I have felt pre-diagnosis. I am dreading the days to come, but I'm hoping Ill be fine.  I have been gluten free for 3 years and have healed and am absorbing food better.  My last antibody test was undetectable!


I guess I'm wondering if anybody that has been gluten free for several years, and then ate gluten, if you have the same symptoms as pre-diagnosis?  Anybody eat gluten by mistake and have no reaction at all?



Ignorant Pharmacist

I picked up my prescription at Walgreens yesterday.  I informed the pharmacist that I have celiac disease and need to make sure the pills do not contain gluten.  She checked with the manufacturer and said that it DOES contain gluten, but "it is a small amount and a small pill", and that I "wouldn't even feel it."  (I have to take these pills up to 4x daily) She also said it is almost impossible to find a pill without a small amount of gluten. I was shocked.  This is coming from a professional pharmacist.
Needless to say I am reluctant to even try the pills to see if I will "feel" the gluten.
Please advise.  Thanks!
