Being Glutened

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering how long it takes you guys to react when you have eaten gluten. I've been on the diet for about 3 months now and when I ate gluten I probably felt abnormal about 3 days later. I've never been diagnosed with Celiac though my doctor thought I should go on the diet since nothing else was working because I used to get real sick before going gluten free, and because we all know that it may take forever to get diagnosed. I'm still debating whether I have it or not, and now that I'm gluten free, tests definitely won't help. If I have been glutened I usually feel really tired and my stomach doesn't feel right and I don't really have diarreah but they aren't solid either.

As a celiac I react differently to the amount of gluten I ingest. If it is trace amount it may take me 3 days before I have symptoms and then it is only upset stomach. If I get a larger amount - I'm in the bathroom within 30 minutes. I can usually tell within 10 minutes if I ate something wrong.

i react differently depending on what and how much i ingest. sometimes i'm running for the bathroom within 10 minutes but other times it can take 12-24 hours. one thing i noticed is that i'll always break out with a big gross pimple(s) on my face within 24-36 hours. that's how i know for sure i've been glutened. i'm still trying to wean dairy back into my diet so that is sometimes the cause for my frequent trips to the bathroom. it can be confusing but once i see that tell-tale zit, i know i've been glutened.

I usually react about 4-5 hours later. Depending on how bad the glutening was determines how long I'll feel sick. Just last weekend I got some contamination and had gurgles and all of that for about 2 hours but then I was fine. If it's really bad, it could last me a day or two.

Thank you for your replies!!!

Ok...I wrote this post awhile ago and I'm still cramping and having to run to the bathroom...I feel like I constantly have to go. It's been more than a week since I ate gluten and was just wondering if this is normal to feel sick for this long? :unsure: And I didn't start to get sick until 3 days after I ate gluten...is this weird or abnormal?

everyone reacts differently but i'm sure it's not completely unheard of to still feel crappy for a few days. maybe you're ingesting gluten somewhere and you don't know it? some prescription meds have gluten. also some people become sensitive to dairy and/or soy. (personally, i can't tolerate much more than a cup of milk with my morning cereal or else i get crampy and diarrhea.) oh and nightshades too are another food group that some Celiacs develop reactions to...potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers.

It could very well be normal for you. Everyone is different. I've read posts from some who are sick for 2-3 WEEKS! I think that's the extreme. (My heart goes out to them.)

I used to have D for 3-4 days, followed by nearly 2 weeks of fatigue and generally ukky feeling.

Now, 2 years later, a glutening gives me D for 3-4 hours, followed by 3-5 days of uck.

That's me, though. some people get sicker with a glutening after some time gluten free.

As time goes by and you are very strickly gluten-free, you will begin to notice a pattern when accidentally glutened.

I have a range of symptoms that last for about a month total. The stomach stuff lasts about two weeks.

Oooh...I hope mine doesn't last for that long...I was happy having normal poopies, I've even been constipated sometimes haha that's a first in my life! I definitely don't want to go back because this little reminder is not pleasant.

Hi,

I have been on the gluten free diet for about 4 years now and so to hopefully answer your question, when I come in contact with wheat, barley, or oats (even a crum or same oil) I will get sick in about 5 minutes. I can tell when I get abnormal coughs and dont feel good at all. Also a small rash apears right on my hip bone (that still has me confused) and I spend alot of time in the bathroom and am very week and tired. Although many get more sick than I do. So really everyone is different. I know what you mean about the tests, I had 13 blood tests, even went to the childrens hospital for extra tests ( Im now 15) and had an alergy test and they all told me that it was a possibility but also it wasnt extreme. Well I went on the diet for a week and gained 7 pounds (which was a good thing because being in 6th grade I was only 64 pounds). So honestly I would say if it works for you and you are feeling good go for it because it would never hurt, and your symptoms you may get to notice more often. Hope I could somewhat help.

    Hi Lfortson, I assume you are on the gluten-free diet?  So no wheat, rye or barley?  That's good, but there are about 10% of celiacs who react to oats also.  So you might want to get rid of oats for several months and see if things improve. Another somewhat common food issue is dairy.  Some people can't digest lactose (cow milk sugar), and some can't digest casein (cow milk protein).  So it might help to eliminate all dairy for several months also.  Almond milk is a possible substitute
    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.
