Could I Be Feeling Symptoms 3 Days After Eating Gluten?

Recommended Posts

hi everyone -

my huzzband and i went to

a friend's house for a bbq on sunday.

(its now wednesday.)

our friend asked me if there

was anything i couldn't eat

besides gluten --

so i thought i was safe!

we ended up having a delish

flank steak (no hamburgers and dogs

at this bbq!)

well, i was helping our host

cut the steak before we sat down

and i asked what

she used as a marinade...

herbs, seasonings...SOY SAUCE!!!!!! : (

i didn't know what to do -

(i know now that many ppl dont

realized exactly what gluten is,

so i need to be more

CLEAR next time)

and i didn't want to be rude.

so i ate the steak.

(i am not sure what got into me,

i NEVER knowingly ingest gluten!!

but it did...)

and afterwards, i felt fine!

or so i thought...

on tuesday night, i started

to feel pretty crappy -

stomach ache, nausea

and today -- its 100 times worse.

a horrible stomach ache

super nauseas

exhausted

foggy headed

bathroom stuff

ugh, it sucks!

could this REALLY be from the

soy sauce marinated steak

i ate THREE DAYS AGO??!?

i thought that if i ate gluten

(esp after being glu-free for a year now!)

that i would feel the effects right away.

is it possible that i am

just feeling the effectS?

???

I've had it take that long. Usually now its 24 hours or 48. But sometimes 3 days. You know from the symptoms it couldn't be anything else...So sorry to hear you are going through this. I have found taking some of those gluten digesting enzymes at or near the time you have the gluten helps. After the fact, I have found having a couple of repeated doses of baking soda in water helps interspersed (at hour intervals) with apple cider vinegar in water... And then later if no D, detox herbs...

Yes it can definately take 3 days. When I did my MD assisted elimination diet he told me to only add foods every 7 days. Intolerances can be delayed reaction. When I added wheat back in on the elimination diet I noticed a couple little things within 24 hours but it took a full 3 days before the D hit. Even 6 years into the diet that is still my pattern. I will notice irritiability and depression right away, and my balance will take a hit and my hair will start to fall within 24 hours, but my D waits for day 3. Every body is different but eventually you will notice your personal pattern.

I've had the same thing. The weekend before last we were eating out at a restaurant that we use frequently. They know that I can't have gluten and was offered a "special" grilled vegetables and rice. It wasn't printed on the menu so I couldn't check ingredients. Before it was served they asked if it was OK if the rice was fried and not boiled and I was assured it wouldn't contain anything I couldn't have. Anyway, a day and a bit later I felt really off for about 3-4 days - a bit nauseous, night sweats, leg cramps etc. and couldn't understand why. Anyway, were at same restaurant last weekend and the "special" was printed on the menu :"fried rice in soy sauce". I asked if that was what I had had - answer yes. I had to AGAIN explain what gluten free meant and the consequences of a coeliac eating it.

It can be really annoying. Hopefully it wont happen again but just makes you realise that you need to constantly double check.

My 11 yr old daughter is having a terrible reaction to gluten that I think she got at a restaurant yesterday. this is the longest it has taken her to get a reaction. It has been a long time since she has had any gluten, that must be why this one is bad. Can I ask what gluten digesting items you use Bea? She has been taking acti-zyme.

thank you, Christy

I need to get some again. Last time I was in the store I saw some "glutenzyme" I think. There are other varieties just as good that are cheaper. I'll look and let you know. As I recall they are mixtures of enzymes and probiotics.
