Glutened But Not Feeling Glutened

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've been eating gluten-free for just over three weeks. Last week, I had japanese food including sticky rice and imitation crab. I had no idea these had gluten! I found out today. However, I was fine last week when I ate them.  Is it possible that I glutened myself but did not outwardly feel glutened? Like maybe I just did slight internal damage without getting my normal side effects? I might have had some slight gas, but that's all I remember. 

 

Thanks for any help!

I have positive for celiac blood work and an incompetent GI who said I was negative for celiac. (the DNA test was negative, but positive antibodies and EMA) Waiting for my appointment with another GI. Decided to go gluten-free anyways, have been feeling better for about a week.

Assuming you have Celiac - Its only been 3 weeks.  You probably haven't been completely gluten-free.  There is a learning curve and it sounds like you are eating food you haven't prepared.  Meaning- you might not be getting a reaction because you haven't stopped making antibodies.  Even if you had been completely gluten-free, antibodies can take a while to go down and may even go up for a few weeks.

So my 2cents likely has nothing to do with gluten, but also I didn't know the fake crab contained it either at the time. Fake crab is a horrible product that no one should eat.   Before I was gluten-free (am only 4 weeks so now) I ate lunch at a buffet and one of the items was small shrimp, peas, carrots, and a white sauce (think thin white lobster sauce in a chinese restaurant) and fake crab.  This was about a year ago.  When I returned to work, I was itchy, I had a hive on my neck and one on my cheek, and the bottoms of my feet were hot and "burning" and when I removed my shoes and socks, literally the bottoms of my feet were red. My coworker said - "what did you eat?" and I've eaten there before, but never that fake crab, so I assumed that was it.  I drank a lot of water, took a benydril, and wet some paper towels to put cool water under my feet. Never again.
