Gluten Ingestion Proportionate To Reaction?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was curious if typically the reaction one would get from accidentally ingesting gluten would be the same...or does it depend on the amount...say an accidental crumb....to a bag of chips you thought were gluten-free, but were not.

Just curious, thanks.

The longer you're Gluten Free the worse the reaction !

.

Last year (when I was 3yrs Gluten Free)

I was in a Supermarket with a friend and they were sampling Smoked Salmon and Brown Soda Bread.

.

My friend tried some and said it was delicious,

the person giving the samples offered me some to which I said

"sorry I can't eat bread I'm a Coeliac"

.

She said " My neighbour has a daughter whose Coeliac, and I know she can eat fish !

just try the smoked Salmon"

.

She cut a large piece, picked it up on the knife and gave it to me,

I in turn devoured the Smoked salmon (My Favourite)

it was only then I noticed it was the same knife she cut the bread into samples with.

.

I thought how bad could that be ??,

BOY WAS I EVER IN FOR A SURPRISE!!!

.

6 hours later I had severe abdominal cramping and the Big 'D' for 4 days

(now that's a severe reaction)

.

Hope that gives you some insight.

.

Best Regards,

David

The worst glutening I've had was from two packets of stevia laced with wheat. Not two in the same day, one the first day and one the second day. When the second one hit, I really reacted with all the old symptoms coming back including both rashes and full neuropathy. As the saying goes "a crumb is as bad as a loaf".
