Gluten reaction from vaping

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

It's been 14 years since I was diagnosed as a celiac. I have strictly followed the gluten free diet since then. I've also smoked on and off, and have tried several times to switch to electronic cigarettes (vaping). I have been unsuccessful though, as every time I try it I get an INSTANT reaction that is identical to being glutened.

I've done my research and can't find any information or accounts of celiacs being glutened by vaping. There are three main ingredients in the vape juice - propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG) and 'flavoring'. PG and VG are apparently naturally gluten free, so flavoring is where you'd expect the issue to lie. But I've tried plain PG only and plain VG only (also with no nicotine) and I get the same gluten reaction every time.

Does anyone else have this issue?

I have heard of someone else having it, but I never have. I have gotten reactions from some cigars before back before I quit smoking. I still use a CBD oil vape pen and found I can use some of the same capella flavors I use in baking and food in the pan lately. No issue from them and my own blends.
There had been I case I recall from someone getting gluten like reactions from propylene glycol...not gluten or actual antibody reactions but similar feelings. If you wish to eliminate that route try some miralax as it is the same thing, if a tsp of it in a drink gives your the same symptoms then it can be a reaction to that which is not unheard of causing issues...but not gluten related.

Hello ive just had blood test and waiting for biopsy in a weeks time. I too am wondering about vaping juices as im wondering if thats why it feels so extreme. Ive asked the local business i get my ecig juices from and they said they couldnt confirm its gluten free as they get theyre flavours worldwide. So im googling gluten free vape juice just to be on safe side. As it is not a reliable source of something we are ingesting id rather know its 100% gluten free. My bodies suffering.

omg this happened to me last night! I got the most intense glutening symptoms I've had in years and could not figure out the cause as I hadn't eaten anything questionable. But last night I tried my friend's cbd vape pen which was something I never had before. It was flavored. I'm thinking that was what caused it!

    Hello, new here and new to the whole thing! My husband has been battling this rash and assorted digestive issues for years. He was diagnosed with contact dermatitis by the dermatologist, had some steroid injections and various creams over the last couple of years, and then in November he went to the ER and they said eczema and gave him steroid pills. This was after a huge bloom that pretty much hit him from head to toe, where it had been mostly arms and legs before. He finally concluded he
    For making oven-roasted pototoes, I cannot recommend highly enough using chicken fat, duck fat or goose fat, for those who can find or have access to these fats.  Not only are they significantly unsaturated, being almost liquid at room temperature (unlike say lard), they are surprisingly light in texture and "feel", and overall quite healthy.  I carefully skim off and save ALL the rendered fat when I make chicken soup from organic chickens, to use in later dishes. Another perfect fat for th
Oh yes, that does sound good!  I've always been fine with potatoes, but just haven't eaten them all that frequently, and usually in a recipe that specifically needed or called for them.  But for the next few months, at least, I think I'll be using them much more. Not that I want to try to subsist mostly on carbs here, but I am also going to be using more sweet pototoes, and also trying to incorporate both plantains (cooking bananas) and yuca (cassava root) into my diet as well.  Both of the
