What Really Happens When You're Glutened?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is a great article on what exactly happens in your gut:


However, I need more info...any maybe some translation! =)

Particularly... how long does the effect of ingesting gluten last? I know it damages cells, changes your blood, and can set off a chain reaction of sorts.... but how much damage does a one-time accidental "glutening" actually do?

I've been gluten free for 9 months...making slow but steady progress... Accidently ingested some gluten, last week and it hit me HARD. I feel like I've gone back 6 months in the recovery process. Super fatigued, anxiety, light-headed, the whole deal.

Possibly related trip to the ER for very low blood pressure...but I'll make that a separate post.

Any thoughts?
