I'd say this sounds like a very bad idea. I have no scientific proof, but common sense tells me the more gluten you ingest, the more damage you do.

I think of it like rat poison. If I accidentally ate a little of it and it tasted good, would I be happy to just go ahead and eat some more.

The immune reaction is a chemical reaction. An immune molecule hooks onto a gluten molecule which allows it to start the process that does damage to the intestines. So, dependent upon the speed of the process in each individual, the damage is going to likely be dosage dependent. Eating more throughout the day just because you slipped during breakfast is not a good idea if you want to avoid intestinal damage.

Sorry for being rude,

That is the stupidest idea I have ever heard.

Your symptoms will last longer for how much gluten you intake, don't eat more, you will get sick for longer, also, cheating will make you want to eat more and more gluten because you will be craving it more and more because you have been eating it more and more, so don't cheat, if you by ACCIDENT get gluten, just wait for those symptoms to end not make them worse. DON'T CHEAT

flagbabyds...ROFL! Let's not say that people with celiac disease don't have strong opinions! :lol:

The thing is, if you're new to this whole thing, this sounds like a reasonable question. It's that "diet" word that throws people. Eddie, for me and my kids, this is how it worked. When first going gluten-free (and I mean within the first week) it didn't seem to make a difference whatever the amount of it accidentally eaten (it was a touchy first few weeks with my kids.) I'd even say that for the first few weeks, it didn't much matter. Now, however, that we've pretty much removed gluten from out diets (with the occasional accident) and have healed in some very visible ways, a little bit in my daughter, for instance, will have her throwing up in half an hour, but otherwise nothing else obvious (little = a bread crumb.) A lot of gluten, however, will have her throwing up, having intestinal cramps and major flu symptoms for 3-5 days (a lot = a bite of a cookie.) It really is a poison to us, even though that sounds so dramatic.

Good luck in working this out! I swear, it does get easier!

:rolleyes: that's the one thing we need to all remember--WE ARE NOT ON A DIET--we are eating or not eating the foods that will make us healthy :) and keep us healthy :D it's not a diet, it's a lifestyle--when people are not understanding my explaination, i tell them its like being diabetic, only they can have a little sugar and we cannot have any wheat, rye, barley, or oats---as this person is standing in front of me eating their Krispy Kreme donut, i say--like that donut, even if it jumps out and says "eat me, eat me" i know i cant have it and that prevents that lifetime on the hips syndrome :P--eddie--this is a lifestyle that you cannot cheat with--for your health you must be very conscious of everything you put in your mouth or touch--you must be careful--yesterday, i had a man hand me a sandwich to be scanned and he had heated it in the oven and i could smell the bread on my hand--i immediately went and washed my hands--we must be VERY CONSCIOUS ;) i know my life is so much better now that i am gluten-free :D deb

    • I have been gluten free for 15 months.  I was ttg amd Iga positive.  My ttg was 100 which maxed out the reading.  Range was  maybe 0-7.  I have been retested and all are within the 0-7 range.  I do not know if I carry the gene, never been tested. No relatives with celiac.  I live in Iowa, USA.
    • Sounds like gluten ataxia, or the form of celiac I have where it also attacks my nervous system and brain. I would get a celiac test if I was you, you have to be eating at least half a slice of bread or a few crackers for 12 weeks before hand and go to your doctor and ask for a full celiac panel. From there you need to be eating it for still and get a endoscope with biopsies to check for intestinal damage. Now to help with the mental issues I will tell your right now a good b-vitamin supplement will help you with the fog and depression a bit. I suggest Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological support one. Take 1 tbsp each 3 times a day. You will notice a huge difference in it. Being liquid it is easier absorbed by your body, if you have celaic then your intestines will also be damaged making where getting these nutrients is more difficult for you body. NOW as to the cheesy bread I hear you on that. I love eating Juilans bakery toasted read with dayia cheese on it.... I was using hte provolone for awhile but am now using the almond bread with daiya dairy free swiss. Love a good cheesy toast and egg white open sandwich with some avocado myself. I also posted a recipe in the baking section where you melt the daiya dairy free cheese shreds and mix them in with the flour blend I use that is gluten-free and make cheesy bread rolls out of them. I have a garlic and cheddar one.....you name just inspired the idea of using a bit of turkey bacon in the cheddar biscuit version.....would be epic
    • I have used Voltaren before, and I experienced that little rush afterward. I never had any reaction to it, and I can't even use makeup that has wheat germ oil in it. I have also had some fairly violent reactions to other medications. That little rush faded after a while, but after an increase in the strength of the gel I did feel it again for a day or two. So from my perspective, it should be ok.
    • I know some people who have tried straw bale gardening, especially for strawberries. I don't know anyone that has had much success with it. All of them thought it was more trouble than it was worth.
    • Hello everyone! This site is awesome! I've been experiencing anxiety, depression and an over all since of non well being. Although I have been going through some rough times but this has lasted for 6 long months. My I've had many blood tests done and this one was concerning me. My CBC iron panel thyroid panel and all others have come out just fine. Does anyone have insight on the following results. Please help and thank you! I also tested positive for some Corrine food allergies. IgE Food w/Component Reflex II Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum 435 HIGH   Ref Range: 90-386 mg/dL t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 Ref Range: 0-3 Negative 0 - 3 Weak Positive 4 - 10 Positive >10 . Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstr- ated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99% specificity for gluten sensitive enteropathy.
