Glutened From Kissing?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I recently came up positive on a Celiac blood panel after having horrible C, brain fog, sleepless, bloating, and stomach pressure/pains for a while.

My boyfriend has been really great in understanding Celiac disease and helping me through it, however I think that I keep getting sick after kissing him, even when he's brushed his teeth.

His toothpaste is gluten free as far as I know (crest pro health). I was wondering does anyone have this similar problem? If so, how do you deal with it?

I really want to be able to kiss him...and asking him to go gluten free is just not an option.

thanks!

after toothbrushing? no, i haven't experienced that problem. not saying it isn't impossible, just that i haven't had it.

and why has him going gluten free been put in the no category/ it `is` an option. as in, he has the capacity to eat gluten free, and the capability to make that decision if he so chooses. so why have you rejected it/ it might be reasonable to reject it, in the circumstances, but there ought to be a good reason other than 'I don't want to ask that of him'.

ps- the stuck shift key on my computer is getting really annoying

My best advice--wait till the next morning... Yes, it takes the romance out of the evening, but you won't feel bad the next day.

Make dinner that is gluten-free. Tonight we are having steak (marinated in Lea & Perrins worchestor(sp?) sauce, garlic & pepper), garlic smashed red potaoes and asparagrus with parmesean on it. Raspberry sorbet for dessert. Wine No gluten!

Tomorrow night we are having BBQ chicken, salad (no croutons), corn & Chebe bread sticks (extended gluten eating family love them). No gluten.

Would he feel deprived if the 2 of you cooked stuff like this?

My hub & boys still use regular bread, crackers and sometimes pasta. But usually, when we eat together, we eat gluten-free but they are the same meals we ate before pretty much.

FarmCat has a good idea there. I know I've tasted shaving cream when I've kissed a man before.
