Hi! I have a question, I hope to not to gross anyone out, but I'll try to be as eloquent as possible.

Is it possible that one's significant other can spread gluten other than by kissing? I hope you understand which implication I'm making. :unsure:

Thank you,

OK...I think I should explain further in detail...a certain oral act. I apologize in advance, because this may seem inappropriate, but I figured that other Celiacs would know.

Thanks again,

Jill, I thought that is what you were inferring ;) However, I don't know what the answer to this would be. It's a good question.

I would think it would all be okay. Shouldn't gluten have already been absorbed? Since your partner has no problems with gluten, then it shouldn't be part of the bloodstream. That's my 2 cents.

cynicaltomorrow, she means.. the oral kind, lol.

Jill, I have no clue either.. maybe just have him wash his mouth really well before hand, to be safe?

Or.. hump a loaf of bread to see if there is a reaction? And I'll go hide now. Not exactly a lady either, but thought I'd try to help. =P

let me relieve your minds--you cant get gluten from oral sex unless maybe there is some topical lotion you have used--read the ingredients then, but people do not pass gluten on to each other--we wouldnt beable to have sex at all if that were the case :( --its ok---deb :rolleyes:

Ahhhh!!! LOL

I follow ya. =P

darlindeb25 -> I think her concern was if he recently ate something with gluten in it, since kissing can cause someone to get glutened.. and if he, well.. performed it on her. Sounds like yer thinking the other way around too?

Unless I'm wrong, reading it that way. Sorry! =)

Jill, I don't think you need to worry about sounding disgusting, considering how some here talk about certain bodily functions, lol.

Alexolua hit the nail on the head---recent Gluten ingestion before The Deed is what I was hinting at!!

Thanks!

    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
