I have been on a strict gluten free diet for over a year.

Before I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I had no symptoms ever.

Yesterday I ate two slices of papa john's pizza. I had a slight stomach discomfort, but overall everything was fine.

I was just interested to see exactly what would happen.

Obviously, I am going to stay on my strict diet.

While you're still eating gluten, your symptoms are generally less severe than after you've been on the diet a few months and then get sick again. This is because when your body constantly deals with gluten, it gets....used to it. After your body has been flushed of it, it reacts more violently to the gluten since the protein has once again become a rather foreign substance.

i've tested myself with everything imaginable almost, to see how much pain I feel and how long I suffer for depending on how much I ate..keep a log of it..so that when I do have my monthly cheat, I know what to stay away from..

:( lisa--as a friend, i am reminding you that we cant cheat, the word being CANT--every time you cheat you do damage to your body--its not like cheating on a diet--some diets will tell you if you cheat, its ok, but jump right back on the band wagon--BUT with celiacs, you cant cheat--diabetics can have a little sugar, but we CANT have gluten in any shape or form--please dont cheat on purpose--we care about you :D deb

Do realize that cheating monthly puts your risk of developing intestinal cancers and other autoimmune diseases and dying early right back up to that of untreated celiacs.

And Lisa....if you're eating gluten once a month, then the gluten-free diet is doing very little good for your body, anyway. Eating just the tiniest bit of gluten completely offsets the progress you've made during that month. The only positive thing is that there is less gluten entering your system, but it will still cause the same long-term symptoms: osteoporosis, cancers, etc. so it's not worth it!

    • I just want you to remind you that I just had a repeat endoscopy last week after my diagnosis some five years ago.   Even though my antibodies are still elevated, my intestinal tract has healed.  But why have I been feeling sick?  I have chronic gastritis.  Who would have guessed?   I do not drink (rarely), take any meds other than my thyroid replacement, and do not have H. Pylori.  That leave autoimmune as the most likely culprit.  I also have some other minor issues that I think is related to Hashimoto’s.  So, I am in an autoimmune flare-up, but celiac disease is not the cause of current my woes. My endoscopy results have validated that I have been doing a good job about avoiding gluten.  I can relax a bit now!   I think because the treatment for celiac disease is a burden placed on us, it can become overwhelming.  Sure, we all eventually master the diet and most of us go on to lead plain old normal lives, but if something is off, celiac disease is the first thing that many of us blame.  Actually, we blame ourselves, to be honest.  We have to remember that we are often dealing with other health issues too.   As far as hair, I buy gluten free shampoo.  It is from Costco and it says it right on the label.  Nice and inexpensive.   Do I really need it to be gluten free?  No.  I think the last time I swallowed shampoo, my mother was most likely bathing me and I did not heed her warning to keep my mouth shut (baby shampoo may not sting your eyes but it tastes awful!).   Like you, sometimes I think it helps to have one less thing to think about and that can be priceless.           
    • 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.    
    • Ms. Alemayoh recalls a childhood of trips to Ethiopia to visit family, returning to Australia with suitcases packed with spices and traditional Ethiopian teff flour, brought in part to cook for a sister who has celiac disease. (Teff flour is gluten free.) Saba's opened in 2015, and Ms. Gebre remains the ... View the full article
    • 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?
