May Have Accidentally Consumed Gluten Today

Recommended Posts

i have been on a gluten free diet for 1 month and ate at a restaurant today that did not have a gluten free menu, however i think there may have been gluten in the marinade for the chicken that i ate, but the kitchen manager was unable to provide me with an useful info. could i have reversed all the repair that took place in my gut for the past month by consuming a little bit of gluten?


Endoscopy & blood panel all negative 12/09 after being strict w/ gluten free diet

As of 8/09 - Candida Overgrowth, C.difficile overgrowth, elevated fecal anti-gliadin, elevated putrefactive SCFA's

Developed severe lactose intolerance, IBS and food sensitivities in 02 after contracting Giardia from a river in Oregon

Had negative celiac blood work in 02

Elevated stool anti-gliadin Ab (21 with 10 being cutoff for normal) - 2008

Positive for DQ8- 2008

Tested high positive for egg, dairy, soy, ginger, mustard - 2008

Lactulose/Mannitol (leaky gut) test indicated slight intestinal permeability

Improved with gluten free diet but still have spastic constipation

You may not have reversed it but if there was gluten, you did damage. Are you having symptoms???

Always ask BEFORE you order and if they can't answer questions about a certain dish, then choose another one that is simpler. Your best bet is to call ahead before you go somewhere but that is not always possible!

I wouldn't think about it this way, because you already ate it, and your mind can be really powerful in a situation like this. There's a chance that it was okay and you won't get sick or do any damage. Just learn from the situation and be more careful next time :)

I have noticed here that some people don't get sick from a gluten exposure until a few days later...that is what recently happened to me. I was fine right afterward, but 2-3 days later started to feel poorly and day 4 was quite bad.


4/2007 Positive IGA, TTG Enterolab results, with severe malabsorption: Two DQ2 celiac genes--highest possible risk.

gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).

10/2000 dx LYME disease; 2008 clinical dx CELIAC; Other: hypothyroid, allergies, dupuytrens, high mercury levels
