So this confuses me.....take a Gluten-Free product like Chex cereal.....some celiacs say they can eat with no problem, while others are more sensitive and have a problem after eating it.  If you aren't ultra sensitive and don't react after eating it, does that mean it's not affecting you internally?? I ask because my son has NO symptoms....we found celiac by accident....and this actually makes it harder.....I let him eat things that are labeled Gluten-Free, but often wonder if some celiacs get symptoms from such foods, couldn't they be damaging his intestines as well...even though he feels ok??

I feel like I'm not explaining this well...I hope someone understands my blabber! thanks!!

I eat Chex.  If they don't bother him and his follow-up Celiac panels are fine, he is probably not having any damage.  My antibodies are at a normal level when re-checked every year.

There is also the possibility that when people say they "react" to something, that their reaction is to something else in the product and not to cross-contamination.

I agree with Karen and Mushroom.

 

I can't eat chex because of other intolerances -- my celiac kids all eat rice, cinnamon and chocolate chex often.  We use half plain rice added to the other half flavored ones to decrease total sugar -- but all three are absolutely gluten-free.
