gluten-free Kitchen, But Hubbby Drinks Regular Beer

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Our household is gluten free, with the exception of hubby drinking regular beer. I've been gluten-free for about 1.5 years so I'm still sorting out how sensitive I am - and at this point, I think I have reacted to things like CC on deli meat from slicer (actual meat was gluten-free), accidental sip of 'real beer', etc.

 

I think I was recently CC'd by kissing my husband after he drank beer - is that crazy? Also wondering if glasses might be 'contaminated.'

 

Wondering if anyone has experience with this. He's been so supportive giving up wheat / gluten, etc. but he is a beer lover so I don't want to have to tell him that he can't drink beer in the house.

 

Thanks!

You can get CC by that.

Yep, no kissing the gluten eater, haha!  My husband is really sweet and will stop me. Maybe you can buy your husband a set of special beer pilsner glasses to drink from?  I want to say you can get them at a place like walmart or target in a set of 4 for under $25.

Might it be the glasses, or the sweet kisses?

 

Thanks all!

To clarify, yes you can get CC'd from kissing a gluten eater or beer drinker. Glass on the other hand, if washed, will not CC you. Just have him rinse the glasses when he's done with them, which is a good idea anyway so they're easier to clean. Of course, if he wants a nice (or cheap, whatever floats his boat) set of beer glasses then go for it. And my perspective is by far one of the most paranoid out there. I'm OCD and only just got my own kitchen I can make gluten free like 2 weeks ago. (YAY!!!!) But I also don't punish my husband because I have a stupid disease and let him bring a bakery cake home the other day and even eat it off my ceramic plates because we forgot to get him paper ones. I simply washed all the crumbs off them before I put them in the dishwasher. I'm really not the least bit worried, and I'm like the kid in the Sixth Sense. I see gluten CC everywhere. :ph34r:

I think that kissing your husband after drinking beer is possible.  To extrapolate that to getting glutened from having it in the house is a stretch.  The gluten of even regular beer isn't all that high.  http://liveatthewitchtrials.blogspot.com/2012/12/gluten-levels-of-73-beers.html

My husband just drinks out of the bottles so I don't worry (beer the only gluten allowed in my house).

What about hand washing the glasses in an empty sink using a dedicated sponge or disposible rag. Then clean the sink after. That way no gluten can get on any other dishes or on a rag and spead to counters etc. I

As far as kissing, no kissing until he brushes his teeth. My husband eats gluten at work (actually has stuff to make sandwiches stocked up at work along with other gluten filled quick meals). So make sure he brushes his teeth after drinking beer and if he has ate gluten while he was out of the house.

Beer is about the only allowed gluten item in our home too.  My partner will drink the Omission beer which is gluten free when we can find it.  I've heard that it is good but I am not a beer drinker.    No kissing till the teeth are brushed!!!

I am glad I read this..... I had no idea that this would be an issue.  I have few symptoms and the ones I have aren't bad but I do have damage in my intestines so I am trying for it to heal and this was very interesting. Thanks!

I know this is an old post, but I thought I'd contribute- I am dealing with CC from kissing my boyfriend who drank regular beer a few nights ago... d'oh! I didn't even think about it until I couldn't sleep that night from burning toes/numb thumbs and the next morning being unable to walk/move my arms up... ugh! I think I will have to make a new "no beer in the house" rule :/ Sucks, man.

I get the rash, so I am a walking wheat sensor.  I have been glutened by both of kissing a spouse who eats wheat, and by running wheat exposed dishes through the dishwasher.  Dishwashers don't run continuous clean water.  They run a couple cycles of water, and splash the dirty water around for a while.  For most people's purposes, this is enough when combined with the high heat, to call them clean.  But I have had cases where the kids loaded the dishwasher badly, some of the glasses had been exposed, they didn't stay inverted, picked up dirty water spraying around, and harbored the wheat, which then spilled on everything when they flipped the glass to unload it.  And let me tell you that figuring out that was the source broke my brain with frustration.  I had to tell the family they had to use disposable dishes for wheat stuff, and take it outside to eat it to be safe.  And I have to ask spouse before kisses, if he's had wheat today.  It is super frustrating, but I really am that sensitive.

Running dishes through the dishwasher is perfectly safe . And they do not just splash dirty water around.

Welcome, Onepercenter!

That sponge in the dishwasher? Kills germs but it does not remove gluten.  Best to keep separate sponges.

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
