Hi I'm sort of new to this. I eat out a lot and I'm trying to identify resturants that may be causing problems for me. I was wondering how long it usually takes for the symptoms to appear after eating gluten and how long they last.

Thanks,

Pete

That is a hard question to answer because not everyone is the same. For me, I feel it right away and my reactions last about 2 weeks. For some people they get delayed reactions, some feel it right away, some get no symptoms at all. Reaction times vary from a few days to a few weeks.

I agree with Kaiti. Everyone is different. I have only had one known reaction and it was within 30 minutes after eating. I am hoping I continue to do this right but I am sure to get glutened again. From what I have read here, it seems to happen to most people.

We just have to do our absolute best to stay gluten-free and learn from any mistakes that are made along the way. Good luck!

It varies from person to person but I usually get sick within an hour or two and it lasts for five days.

What if you feel fine eating gluten and then go on the diet - do you know that you've been glutened? I'm anemic and I'm having a biopsy next month due to the fact of some anti-body being too high in my blood work. Anyway, I do have to take iron to have any energy but other than that, I feel pretty good no matter what I eat. I have a symptom that is related to diverticulosis that I mistook for a celiac disease symptom. Anyway, I'm going to go on the diet and see what happens, regardless of the biopsy results. That will be the tie breaker between blood test and biopsy. But since I don't have typical gastro symptoms now, how will I know if I've been mistakenly glutened? Are there any of you out there that were in my situation - feeling good before the diet? If so, can you tell if you get glutened?

I hope I'm typing this in the right place, anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for the response. Not exactly what I was hoping for, makes it hard to figure out where the gluten came from. Guess I'll have to be more assertive when ordering at restuarants. Problem is, as I'm sure you know, not all of them even know what I'm asking them. I saw an article about the increasing awareness of Celiac in Wall Street the other day, could be there is hope.

Thanks again,

Pete

Have you tried the Triumph dining cards? They do help - I used mine the very night I got them - was going to order beef tips, handed the card to the server and asked him if he had ever seen them - which I knew he hadn't - small town; he went to the kitchen and came back telling me that the chef said the meat came with flavoring and soy was used - and that I should order the chicken or fish. It was nice to have one relaxed meal where I didn't have to worry about getting sick. For me, the symptoms wouldn't appear for nearly 24 hours, then I'd have a hard time tracing back to where I had ingested gluten. Obviously have a slow stomach

Thanks for mentioning those Triumph dining cards! I went and ordered mine, they'll make life easier. And I sent the e-mail from the site to get a friend with a celiac daughter to get them, too. They sound like a fabulous idea. And will explain things to waiters/chefs much better than I can.

I have been feeling terrible for these past two days, and haven't got a clue why. I know I didn't eat anything with gluten these past days, but something, somewhere it happened. I think I might react slowly, too, and will therefore rarely be able to figure it out. Especially since my husband eats things containing gluten, and isn't careful with contaminating my stuff at all, even though I explained to him how serious it is.

Just the other day, he was soaking my gluten free frying pan (I bought a stainless stell pan just for myself), and was soaking some spatulas and cooking spoons (including an old wooden one) in it, that had ALL been used for preparing foods with gluten! And then he can't understand why I lose it and start crying. I am trying SO hard to stay gluten free, and then he does things like that! It's very frustrating.

Pete, here's a link to getting the cards: Triumph dining cards

    • MelissaNZ,  Has your daughter been checked for vitamin deficiencies??? Vitamin D deficiency symptoms include urinary incontinence, oral candidiasis (thrush), skin rashes, bumps on the backs of arms, joint pain, distended stomach and short stature.  Bones can't grow much without vitamin D.  Vitamin D deficiency causes delayed gastric emptying (food doesn't move through the gastrointestinal tract at a normal speed and the intestines bloat) which explains your daughter's delayed reaction to the cake.   Vitamin A deficiency is also a cause of bumps on the back of the arms. Vitamin A deficiency causes vision problems. Vitamin A and D are both fat soluble vitamins.  Absorption of fats is a problem for Celiacs.  So is absorption of B vitamins and important minerals. B Complex vitamins are water soluble and must be replenished every day. Skin rashes are associated with several B vitamins like niacin (B3), B12, and thiamine (B1).   I went through a period of severe malnutrition prior to diagnosis.  It was not a pleasant experience.  I had symptoms similar to your daughter's, including the incontinence, which resolved on vitamin D supplementation.   Please, please have your daughter tested for vitamin D deficiency.  And have her B vitamins checked as well.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption.  Malabsorption causes deficiency diseases.  Newly diagnosed Celiacs need to be checked for deficiencies.   I hope this helps.  
    • I will try to make my long story short, I have been searching my whole life for a diagnosis,  I have seen pretty much every doctor possible I even went through a spinal tap recently because they thought I had multiple sclerosis,  when I was younger I was always throwing up and having stomach problems, a couple hospital visits they thought I had appendicitis, I started having a neurological symptoms as well as  anxiety and depression,  The fatigue was just over bearing,  I was having numbness and tingling and muscle spasms all the time eventually started having seizures,  which kind of cycled through and stop happening after a couple months,  and then it dawned upon me my brother has celiac pretty severely, my grandmother also has celiac, my dad does as well, I don't know why I never thought that it could be my issue, for the last week I have   Been gluten-free and steering clear of cross-contamination,  my dizziness is improved my fatigue is improved as well as rashes I was getting on my arms  and sides,  I have no more muscle jerks or spasms, The problem is I have horrible insurance and I cannot afford testing, so I am at least trying to do it an home blood test,  I know it's not very accurate on telling me if I have celiac or not,   But the thought I may never know for sure if I have it is very daunting.  My family keeps telling me you don't need  to spend thousands of dollars to have a doctor tell you you can't eat something you already know you can't. Just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has a vi just was wondering if anybody else has been in my position and seeing if anybody has advice,  I don't want to be known as one of those people who believe they have something and people with the disease frown upon them it's a very scary thing to think about. 
    • ...ON a side note this is quite easy, you can make your own out of any gluten-free Bread mix, I recently started using a coconut flour blend for this.......Most often people associate caraway with Rye Bread so you just add caraway seeds to the dough and a bit more vinegar to sour it a tad and BAM gluten-free Rye Bread knock off. I think Authentic Foods even has a additive to put in bread mixes to make it taste like Rye Bread....Or you can buy it preamade, I have issues with all the other ingredients but as for one of the best gluten-free Breads out the Canyon House makes a Rye like bread https://canyonglutenfree.com/buy-gluten-free-bread-products/Gluten-Free-Rye-Deli-Sandwich-Bread.html  
    • Took me less than a minute, although why did they need our addy and phone?
    • As mentioned before you said she had rashes, have they checked if that is DH? That is a positive sign of celiac and those with the DH manifestation can have problems getting a postive with the gut biopsy.   Here are some links. https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ https://www.gluten.org/resources/getting-started/dermatitus-herpetiformis/ Please read up on this. She can get the rash tested for the disease if it is DH.
