Reactions

Recommended Posts

I had a positive biopsy and negative allergy/blood tests. I'm supposed to be trying the gluten-free diet for 3 months to see if it's true. I don't think it is because I know there were times when ate gluten and never had a reaction and there are times i have reactions when I know I've had no gluten. I've been on and off the diet (because my doctors have different opinions) and couldn't tell much of a difference either way. Why would I still have symptoms with gluten free foods?

A gluten reaction can be delayed, and some here can react up to three days later. That might be something to think about. There are also some celiacs that are non-symptomatic. They have no symptoms, but the damage does occure.

Celiac is not always about what you consume in your meals. Lipstick, lotions, shampoos, meds and scratched pots and pans, wooded spoons used prior to being gluten free can also cause problems.

I do not know how long you have been gluten free, but for many here, it has taken months to feel relief from a gluten free diet. There are way too many traps to fall into when you are first diagnosed.

It is really unrealistic for a very newly diagnoses celiac to go 100% - there is just way too much to learn. But it can be done with study and diligence.

Hope that can answer some of your questions. And welcome!!

For me, it depends. Sometimes I get a gluten reaction right away, and sometimes I don't seem to get any at all.

I have been walking through life with no idea I was Celiac or real symptoms from gluten. I just thought it was me, how my body was, never really thought anything was wrong (except losing 30lbs). It is actually my biggest fear about my recovery, that I won't know if I accidentally ingest gluten.

After I was diagnosed my sis ter kept denying she had celiac b/c she did not have symptoms or so she thought. 10 mos. later she was + for celiac disease, anemia, osteopenia, vit. deficiences... Since gluten-free she is feeling much better and relized she did have symptoms after all but she just thought it was normal ie bloating to looking pregnant after eating-she just thought she ate too much...

She also became sick going gluten-free at first. Every "typical" symptom of celiac disease she had on a gluten-free diet!! :blink:
