I just RECENTLY went gluten free. I'm on day 5.

Overall, I feel better. I have a LITTLE bit more energy. BUT, I think that there might be gluten in maybe my vitamins. I've taken them the last two days and I get the big D almost right after taking them (maybe 20-30 mins) When I take my vits I take on an empty stomach and then eat right after taking so that they metabolize. It's the only time all day i've had the D so I know or am assuming the other foods are agreeing with me okay.

Also, i still drink Coke (I don't like coffee in the a.m., just a coke! NOT diet). Could it be something in that? I can have coke other times of the day and I don't get D.

Or is it still too early to tell if something is glutening me?

All coke and pepsi products are gluten-free. Yes, your vitamins could have wheat and gluten in them call the company and find out.

Now on symptoms it is not only different for different people but I find how much gluten and type make a difference. Some I know in 5-10 minutes and others like this last huge horrifying incident it took 12 hours and I have reacted up to two days later. However, as being gluten-free the longer you are gluten-free the more violent the reactions could be when you get glutened. When you were eating gluten it was a constant now you are not your system may react more violently, mine sure does.

I've only been gluten free for four months now and have had two episodes. Both eating out. :ph34r: The first time (about one month into gluten-free living), I ate dinner about 7 p.m. and was awoken at 1 a.m. with D and dizzyness. The second time was last weekend (I ordered steak tacos and didn't notice that they were marinated in terriyaki sauce--duh!!!) and my stomach started acting up within a half hour. Unfortunately, I had just started watching that movie "Pusuit to Happyness" when my stomach started pursuing sheer misery :huh: Needless to say, my husband had to fill in a lot of blanks for me with that movie!

For me the time is getting less and less and the symptoms more intense the longer I follow the gluten-free diet!

Just remember that it took your body some time to be damaged by gluten and it will take some time to heal. Some people here have felt feel better very soon after going gluten free. It took me about six month.

On occasion, when I get glutened the brain fog and the shakes begin first. I feel very flumbly. About 24 hours later, the acid D begins. It take about three day to fully recover from an accidental gluten.

But, every one reacts differently.

I get bloated almost right away and the pain and nausea sets in anywhere from 2-36 hours later.

just thought i should tell you coke itself is a Diarrheic particularly if you drink a litre or more a day.

i felt a noticeable difference within days but a significant difference after 2-3weeks gluten free.

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
