How Long To Reaction?

Recommended Posts

Hi -

I'm just wondering how long it takes for people to show symptoms after being "glutened"... I'm pretty sure that I ate sauce with flour in it last Wednesday night. I felt "tingly" right away. Thursday, I felt tired and brain-fogged - but no bad stomach problems. Same on Friday - Also, I had to pee often. Then the D* started Saturday & hasn't let up since (it's Tues. now). I don't think I've eaten anything with gluten since last Wed. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Thanks.

All that I can tell you is that if is different for different people. My mom is sick in less than an hou and better just as quickly. My sister's reactions are more delayed. I never have the classic reactions so I must be extremely careful. I could do damage without knowing.

My allergy doc just told me that gluten reactions are more frequently delayed - like they happen a day or two after the exposure as opposed to within minutes...

This is a pretty individual thing--everyone reacts a little bit differently.

I start to get symptoms within about 2 hours. My reaction is worse on days 2 and 3--I'm very nauseous, brain fogged, crampy, etc. It begins to improve after that, but I don't feel completely back to normal for more than a week.

Hey there -

Thanks for the responses! Another question: Does the magnitude of the response correlate to the amount of gluten ingested? I think that this last reaction has been my worst since going on the diet over 2 years ago. I also think that it's been my worst contamination...

Take care
