Can Gluten Transfer During Sex?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in april 07, I have been good about being gluten free,and feel alot better. I have been doing research on gluten tranference and cant find anything about gluten transfering from sexual partners. Celiacs can be glutened from digesting, inhalation,and tranference from item to item, like cats and dogs licking you, eating or drinking after someone who has consumed gluten, or using the same item someone else has used. So then wouldn't sex with someone who has consumed ,touched an item transfer too? Curious Thanks Jgh671

"Tradition" exchange of bodily fluids does not tranfer gluten with the exception of contaminated kissing.

There may be some trace gluten in breast milk if the lactating mother is eating gluten.

Saliva can be externally contaminated from residue of gluten-containing food in the mouth, so deep kiss with care.

Other than that, the fluids naturally produced by the body do not contain gluten. :rolleyes:

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
