gluten-free Kitchen, But Hubbby Drinks Regular Beer
3 3

14 posts in this topic

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:

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.

I've bee cc by kissing the husband. FYI to cap6 omission beer is a ?  It is barley beer treated with an enzyme that removes the gluten. A lot of online debate about it. And since we all differ in how sensitive we are, to me it's a ? Also, I put dishwashing sponges in dishwasher, drying cycle kills all funk I believe.

Welcome, Onepercenter!

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

    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
    • Thanks for that.  Will get her tested for deficiencies.  I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks  
    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come!
