Kissing...does This Happen To Anyone Else?

It's so annoying! When I go on a date and/or kiss someone who has ingested gluten (even if they drank beer), my lips end up getting horribly chapped, dry, crack, peel and get canker soars for weeks! Does this happen to anyone else, or am I alone on this one?

No, and I figured so, but you don't really carry a toothbrush on a date and sometimes the moment is just there and you end up kissing. It would be rather odd if I told everyone I went on a date with/hook up with to make sure they bring a toothbrush and tooth paste to the date just in case they get lucky enough to kiss me, haha. :P

That could explain the years of horribly chapped lips!! But I've got my boyfriend trained that if he doesn't wash up after eating gluten, no good bye kisses. It's kinda sad sometimes, but getting sick from a snog is worse!

I'm getting better at enforcing my no kissing after gluten rule. I can't say I've ever gotten glutened, but it's worth being careful. Of course, he makes just as much of a fuss if I've been eating meat, so it evens out. Stick to the cheek until teeths have been brushed.

If your (potential) significant other can't handle it, then it's probably not going to work out.

(My lips are also ridiculously dry lately, but I put that up more to it being winter and dry in general)

I've always been really uptight about no gluten kissyface. I'm just now

starting a new relationship, and made it very clear upfront about the need

for toothbrushing (and beard washing :D ) and he was fine with it. The

gluten thing has definitely kept me from being as free with my kisses as I

might like to be, but I just am not willing to risk it. Nothing with gluten on

it goes in or near my mouth, and that includes someone else's mouth. If

they're all gluteny they can kiss my neck, I like that fine! ;)

I wish I had the will power to say no, lol. When I had a BF I made sure he brushed before we kissed, but being single and just being in the moment, I just don't have to will power of telling the guy "no" when I really just want to maul them. Haha!

I suppose you could always go and brush yourself, after. Although, to be

honest, I did just fine 'mauling' my new guy without having to kiss him...

on the mouth. :D

I know it isn't brush brushing, but you could carry those Wisp thingers (if they are gluten free) and offer him one after a meal out and you both go use one. I may seem a little presumptive but at some point the gluten thing will come up and and can just be very matter of fact, no big deal about it and you're prepped and ready to go make kissy faces.

My boyfriend avoids eating gluten at least 8 hours before we see each other because I've been glutened before due to that:-(

No you are not alone. My hsuband of 33 years mostly can only kiss me on the cheek if he has eaten gluten. Which he does everyday.

Sadly even if your partner brushes teeth and uses mouthwash a night of romance will make you sick.

It is very annoying!!

My hub brushes and flosses and rinses and he doesn't make me sick! Unless being with your husband just makes you sick even without gluten?

Drives me up a freakin wall, but I have had to make sure my husband's toothpaste is gluten free because he refuses to switch to my Earthpaste.  <_< But if your partner is brushing with a toothpaste or using a mouthwash with gluten in it, then all they are doing is brushing and swishing around the gluten with more gluten!

In the US, what toothpaste or mouthwash has gluten?

None that I know of, but I check anyway and recheck things once a year just to keep on top. I'd hate to start getting sick and not know why and it was from stupid random thing like that. I've said it before, but I am the most paranoid person I know. :ph34r: I'd still just feel better if he used what I use, it is chemical free.

    • Hi!  Um, please forgive my quirky sense of humor..... Celiac Disease is genetic... All first degree relatives of people diagnosed with Celiac Disease should be tested for the disease, too.  Gall bladder problems are often associated with Celiac Disease.  Your diagnosis might save your whole family from further medical problems as they age and the disease progresses... You need to set a good example if relatives are similarly diagnosed.... and then everybody will have to eat gluten free at family gatherings....  
    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I know this is not funny for you guys, but I had to laugh about how all of those family members simply ignored your well meant advice. That is definitely head in the sand syndrome. I have tried for a long time to find the connection between autoimmune diseases and my health. With this celiac diagnosis I have finally found it. All of the puzzle pieces are in place for sure and it is going to be my mission to do the best possible in order to get healthy again.   What a sneaky disease this is and to think that none of my family members never were diagnosed, despite the fact that both have been in doctor's care all of their lives. It really goes to show that most medical doctors simply seem to completely disconnect nutrition with health.   I am scared to give that advice to people when I see them suffering from specific diseases. But there are people that I would like to help if I can. Scared to make those suggestions, because so many times negative reactions follow and all I meant to do was to help that person.
    • There are definitely things you can do to make it easier on yourself. But all of my ideas seem to cost money and involve cooking. But I'll give it a shot anyway in case you haven't already thought of it. I would buy a small chest freezer and put gluten-free foods in it. Canyon bakehouse sells their fantastic bread and bagels right on their website. You can just buy a case of it. Then if you ever get in the mood for a sandwich or bagel the bread's right there frozen in your chest freezer. If you get invited to somebody's house for dinner find out what their cooking and make your own similar version of it. So for Easter I would make ham, potatoes and broccoli and bring that with me. So when everybody else is eating a fantastic Easter dinner I'm also eating a fantastic Easter dinner. I have other food issues and before celiac I was invited to a friend's wedding. I wasn't going to be able to eat the food they were serving so I made similar food at home. They were serving lamb, ham, vegetables, potatoes. So I brought ham, corn and potatoes with me and heated it up when everybody was going to the buffet to get their food. So when everybody else was pigging out on this great wedding dinner I was also pigging out on a great dinner. And nobody would have noticed if they didn't try. Sometimes you just get in the mood to have a frozen dinner and just don't feel like cooking something. There's two ways you can go about this. I happen to be addicted to Udi's chicken Florentine and think that their broccoli kale lasagna is very good as well. So I'd stock up on that in that chest freezer. glutenfreemall.com has tons of stuff. On Sunday you can make a weeks worth of food and freeze a lot of it in individual portions. After a few weeks you will have several different meals in the chest freezer that you made at home. You can eat those on weeknights when you're too busy to cook. In my family Friday night was always eat out fast food night. McDonald's, Burger King, pizza, fried chicken. So for pizza my plan is to purchase Etalia New York style pizza crusts. Purchase some Escalon six in one crushed tomatoes and freeze in individual portions. Buy some Grande 50/50 mozzarella cheese and freeze in individual portions as well. If on Friday night if I am in the mood for pizza I'll just grab a crust, a portion of sauce and a portion of cheese from the chest freezer and make myself pizza in under 15 minutes. When I get invited to a barbecue I bring loaded potato skins or batter fried chicken wings. Everybody loves them as do I. I by Pamela's gluten-free flour from Amazon six at a time. So I always have some available. For the record, at the moment I am an extremely strict diet and cannot do any of the above. But will go back to that method in a few months.
