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

    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
    • Ennis_TX, thank you for your response! I will take heed of all your nutritional pieces of advice, one by one. And yes, I am aware that a gluten marathon is on the horizon soon.   Before doing the test, however, I shall try to fortify my diet with the nutrients you mentioned, and report back in a week or two.   I think adding some iron supplement is wise too.    
    • Yeah I thought that rant might make me look like a queer after reading it a bit later.....I am straight btw I just have very long and fine hair...that yeah it blows everywhere and gets in my mouth sometimes, and always pushing it with my hands or having to tie it up.  I blew up because it sometimes feels like I am talking to a bunch jocks with buzz cuts when it comes to hair....like people that do not understand no matter what you do....it is going to end up in your mouth and you have to keep messing it and working with it when the stuff runs like 4-6" past your shoulders.
      >.< thing is some times with the way your hair is.....you do not rinse it all out...some conditioners I have used in the past used to b ones you would not rinse all the way out....it sort of does become a issue that is very easily avoided. There are many more options for gluten free shampoos now days and many companies have taken the allergy/gluten concern to heart and removed them/used alternatives to boost sales to a larger demographic. Point is while yes I did blow up about it...and honestly in many cases the "hydrolyzed wheat protein" thing is a hit and miss on if it really contained gluten, but better safe then sorry is my bet and with tons of options....why chance it?


       
    • B-vitamins...most gluten and processed foods are enriched...your basically eating a multivitamin every time you have a slice of bread etc. Look for a full spectrum B-vitamin supplement, others can be magnesium, iron, vitamin d, folate, etc. You mention plenty of greens and fruit so ruling out vitamin A,C,K, and a few others. Hmm did you drop off your carbs too much? If your carb dependent you need more complex carbs from like sweet potatoes, rice etc. And what about fat and protein? I am a keto dieter, my body burns fat instead of carbs for energy so I can say it is quite important to have plenty of fats and protein in your diet. Try snacking on nuts/seeds between meals or making up a protein shake with almond butter in it between meals (again going but what you said you eat vs what you might be missing)

      I use Liquid Health for my spectrum B vitamins and vitamin D. Might look into them, being in liquid form you can just add it to a beverage. Might see about magnesium also, huge issue with many with this disease.

      On other after thought, your probably already very aware of...but you mention your not "diagnosed yet" you will have to do a gluten challenge of eating gluten for a extended amount of time daily prior to getting tested. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
    • Thanks guys! I have an endoscopy/colonoscopy  feb 5th, so we will see. I have had digestive issues for the past like 10 years. GERD, migraines, lactose intolerant, dizziness on and off starting last year. My test just always show chronic inflammation, I thought they tested for celiac last time but it was only H. pylori samples. As much as I don’t want to have celiac I’m hoping this could be the root of my problem! My doctor said I should probably go gluten free after the test regardless of the results. You guys have been so helpful!!
