Can Non-Dietary Sources of Gluten Make You Sick?

Recommended Posts

Just when you think you've heard everything, something brand new enters the arena. When it comes to non-dietary sources of gluten, I think of things such as lipstick (it's not a food but we still eat some of it), Play-Doh (also not a food but if you've ever seen children playing with it, you'll note that some ingestion occurs), and some cosmetic items like body lotions and shampoos.

Not sure how this showed back up - it was first written in 2014.  As I remember - this "study" had some issues that were not resolved.   I was hoping to see some new info on this case. Perhaps more people with the same issue?  Tests showing gluten leaching out of plastic?....

From what I remember, the issues with the first report on this case were -

- its just 1 case.  There were no other reported cases of glutening by a dental retainer.  

- the manufacturer never confirmed gluten in the retainer

- no one tested the retainer to see if it was leaching gluten proteins or even contained them

- the child"s ttg drastically declined declining while wearing the retainer


 With a very very high ttg at diagnosis,   could this have  been this child's natural progression to a normal ttg?  It can take a year for numbers to go all the way down.
