#904832 Can Celiacs Tolerate A Little Gluten Sometimes?

Posted by Mac0030 on 03 February 2014 - 03:11 AM

I have never had a symptom and didn't even know I had celiac. It has been two months without gluten. I asked my doctor about the no symptom t all eating gluten once in awhile. He said NO WAY! Even though you don't feel anything then damage still occurs. My biggest problem is that if my no symptoms continue to occur I will never know about cc so I need to be extra careful. Don't eat gluten willingly it's not worth it and will harm you.

#897665 Newly Diagnosed

The OP, Macoo30, doesn't sound like he/she is balking at going gluten-free & it seems has already begun the process of learning what's involved. The OP just seems to be rather bewildered that celiac disease was confirmed by pathology.


Not ballking at gluten free at all. Want to get as much information as possible. Already started marking things and by January 1 no gluten in my future. I had never heard of celiac disease prior to the diagnosis it seemed to have come completely out of left field.

The endoscopy was because I had a complete physical and lack one half of a family history. My doctor recommends endoscopy now instead of at 50 solely because I don't know one half of my family tree history for any medical problems. Also sent to cardiologist for a complete work up.

I already eat fruit and veggies fresh. Live on rice cakes and peanut butter. Thankfully pasta isn't a staple but bread with my homemade soups and bagels living here in New York is a problem. The beer no big deal casual drinker who will just switch to something like vodka of gin on that occasion. What I am fining surprising is all the hidden places that gluten can be. I am also lucky enough to be married to a woman who will now be the gluten police. I had to,change my diet once to lose 40 pounds this looks to be another change. As I said trying to get as many helpful tips as I can. Thank you all.
