Severity Of Reactions

I'm wondering about this....if you are regularly eating glutin you have a certain level of reaction. If you go on a gluten-free diet for a long period of time, and then accidentally get some glutin, is the reaction likely to be GREATER than it was before when you were regularly eating it?

For some people the reaction to gluten gets worse and for others it doesn't. I think the reactions to gluten depend on the person. My reactions got way worse and I even developed new symptoms having going gluten-free.

I agree with Carrie... I had reactions before going gluten-free, but nothing like I do now! I can get a crumb now and know it. It only makes sense, IMHO, that the "cleaner" your system gets the more sensitive you would get. Not everyone is that way, however. This disease is very different from person to person. :blink:

Everyone has a different gluten reaction experience--for me, before I was gluten-free, I was always sick. One period of being sick kind of blended into the next. I never knew if I would be sick, say for a special occasion or a trip, etc. I didn't know what was wrong, so I'd try to "stay healthy" and hope for the best. Now that I'm gluten-free, I feel good (digestively speaking) most of the time and if I get cross contaminated or (less often now) glutened, I get strong symptoms that are clearly a result of the gluten, but I know the cause now and I know it will be over within a week. Other things like my eczema, neck pain and facial numbness are with me pretty much all the time now. I'm hoping these will be the next to go!

yeah, as above, these things vary from person to person, but a fair amount of people here say their reactions to gluten are stronger after being gluten-free. my reactions are stronger and different in some ways. One of my gluten symptoms--brain fog, only started happening after going gluten-free. I rarely had it beforehand...not nearly as severe.

This is exactly how it was for me. Eventually there were no more "healthy" days though. Now the slightest contamination and I pay for it for 2 weeks.
