Ate Some Gluten

Recommended Posts

My wife is celiac and recently ate some gluten by mistake. Her body tells her immediately. Is there any remedy for the pain? She claims there is nothing she can do, and I believe her and it usually passed in a day or so. She is a bit stubborn so I thought I would ask. Understand the disease pretty well but she doesn't take anything, not even water until the pain goes away.

There's nothing you can take, unfortunately. I drink lots of water so I don't get dehydrated. But if your wife has nausea, maybe she really can't take even water. My problem is that I spend too much time in the bathroom, so water is important for me.

There really isn't anything that you can do to stop the pain, but I have found that if I drink a cup or so of tonic water (the stuff used for mixed drinks with quinine in it) right away as soon as I realise I've been glutened, then it helps the pain to be less severe. Also she does need to try to get some water in her, especially if she has vomiting or the big D. Gatorade, Propel, even Pedialyte can help keep the electrolytes up.

If the pain is muscle and joint pain something she could try is baby asprin. I use the St Josephs and it seems to help pretty quickly with the inflammation. May not work for her but thought I would mention it.

No, there isn't anything that we can do to stop the autoimmune reaction.

However, depending on the symptoms, there are some things that an help alleviate some of the symptoms. If she has diarrhea, Immodiums can be a help.

Some people try to eat "soothing" foods....like mashed potatoes, soup, etc.

I hope that this passes quickly for her!
