This Normal For Gluten Intolerance?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So is it normal for people with gluten intolerance to be able to eat gluten in moderation? Ive been testing it out and seemingly I can eat it as long as it's in moderation and there are no ill effects. Maybe i'm not even gluten intolerant and the doctor was retarded?

You may have gotten a false positive if you were tested (?), I can't even eat peanuts that say "manufactured on shared equipment with wheat" or I get violently ill. If I were to even eat bread in moderation I would swear I was dying. I took a bite of a bratwurst last month (no bun obv.) and swallowed it before I realized it tasted like pure beer - sick as a dog - one bite.

But with that said all people are different. But the way this works in your body I don't know that you could eat 'in moderation' without feeling some kind of effect, unless you are a sleeper Celiac which I hear also exists. To me they are like unicorns ( :P ) but I do hear that people can have it without actually feeling the effects.

If this is the case, you need to still be very very strict with your diet if you had a positive test, because even if you don't feel symptoms your small intestine is still breaking down and you expose yourself to a myriad of health-issues that you really won't want to deal with (higher cancer rate, infertility . . .)

Just my 2c! Best of luck!

I have to ask if you were diganosed with Celiac or not. Myself, I am not a "common celiac". I have been tested to where myself and my father carry the genetic marker but we show no signs of other celiac indicators. However, I have been skin tested to where I am highly allergic to wheat, oats, barley and rye. I tried an accupuncture and she gave up because I showing no signs of over coming the allergy. s I do have scarring on my intestines which is a sign of damage from Gluten. I get extremely bloated with intense abdominal pain. I do not vomit, havent since I was a baby, so I remain ill for days after eating anything with gluten. When I first started on this trek, I experimented with different wheat products, and I found that I thought I could eat some things with wheat however everytime I would experience a different symptom, sometimes different from what I was used to, so I wouldn't think it was related. After going to a gastrointestinal dr and I told him of this, he told me to never eat gluten again because even though I may not feel the same symptoms the end result is damage to my internal organs. He did do the endoscopy and that is where we found the damage. I also believe that due to the fact I have an auto immune deficiency I don't absorb nutrients properly which doesn't help. My father suffers from abdominal pain, bloat and gas but he continues to eat wheat. So I have to say it's what you are willing to do for yourself. Just keep in mind that you could be damaging your organs with every bite you take. I dont want to scare you but I feel being honest is what you are looking for.

I did genetic testing and they said I did not have the markers for it and that means i ahve a 90% chance of not ever having celiac. Then I did a blood and stool test which said I was allergic to gluten. So whatever i'm lost and confused. This is retarded and everything.

Was your blood test a celiac panel? Can you post the results here?

You said you did not have the genetic markers for celiac disease. CAn you also post those results here? The medical community recognizes different genetic markers in different parts of the world. It might help your confusion if you post your results here for a "second opinion".

Also back to your original question, yes, some can have celiac disease or GI and still not have symptoms. Some people are asymptomatic but still get the internal damage without feeling it. You want to avoid the organ damage if you are intolerant or have celiac disease.

    Sounds awful. My hit me a few days later this time. But I still feel the same three weeks later. Well, a little bit better as my headaches have worn off but I am still so dizzy and have numbness and tingling. It's so hard to concentrate. I feel horrendous but have been to the docs and hosp numerous times and they can't do anything.
    I sorta bump into walls a lot more, misjudge distances and hit my shoulder on door frames in a sort of totter fashion, catch myself almost falling sometimes on stairs, drop stuff, find I lose heat and cold sensitivity and often burn myself, or cut myself. These stick around for a while and slowly taper off. My ataxia normally hits hard the first day within hours of consuming the offending food I can lose full motor control and end up on the floor.
Thank you so much for your response. Do you get dizzy, well it's not dizzy, it's weird feeling where you feel like you are walking in space. And my skin just feels different, all nervy and more sensitive but not, like I can't feel as much.
