How Long Does Gluten Hang Around

Recommended Posts

I am just learning more every day about celiac disease. It is very amazing just how bad it can be. So now I am not being as careful and have been eating or drinking stuff I later find out has gluten.

I get diarrhea for days once I make a mistake. Is this normal? How long does it take to flush out.

And where does the gluten go when I eat it. Does it go into my blood stream?

Everyone's reactions and durations can be different. I think your reaction seems to be fairly common. A lot of people drink lots of water to help flush out their system.

And where does the gluten go when I eat it. Does it go into my blood stream?

I'm not sure if it goes into your blood stream.

I found this http://www.uchospitals.edu/pdf/uch_007935.pdf

Antibodies are produced by the immune system in response to substances that the body perceives to be threatening. Think of antibodies as sending out a warning signal to the body


Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.

2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.

Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.

So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!

My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

I just found out my Igg count is 37.

I never know what it was or anything until I saw it on here. LOL.

I did read it lasts 72 hours. Today is good. No runs.
