Recovery From Accidental Gluten Ingestion

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of a way to hasten recovery from an accidental gluten poisening? My poor son (age 12) has been down and out for 4 days now with no improvement. Yes, it's definitely a celiac episode. It's sad to watch.

I recently found out that at least with my body, the only way I'll feel is to have the gluten completely out of my system. I ate a non-gluten-free dinner roll on Sunday (stupid, stupid experiment tp test my +/- test results and let's just say I found the answer I needed) and am just barely beginning to feel better now. Unless anyone else has any magic remedies, I've just been drinking lots of water to try and flush my system out as best I can. I hope your son feels better soon!

My doctor tells me it takes 3 weeks to heal from a single gluten accident :(

I hope he feels better soon.

Blessings,

Lily

There are 2 aspects of the recovery:

- digestive tube (duodenum) recovery;

- rest of the body (that feels the effects of the crisis, too);

You should apply indigestion recovery measures (diet with mint tea, for ex.) and flu-like recovery tactics (rest to bed, may be some mild vitamin supplem, preferable by injection because many tablets can contain gluten and injected vitamins have quicker effect).

Best wishes.

Andrew.

    • I do think sunscreen could be an issue for people. I realize that it is only an issue if ingested. I have very pale children. We use thick zinc oxide and waterproof sunscreen. I apply it every hour or we will burn. I have it coating my hands at the end of every pool trip. We swim daily in the summer in a Texas. There is nothing else to do when it's this hot!  It takes me multiple hand washings to get it off my hands. Often times, while at the pool or beach, we eat - chips, watermelon, nuts etc. I assume it touches the food i ingest. Ours is gluten-free. 
    • I'm sorry I don't  In fact I just looked and only found this on the uk datasheet; So maybe I was wrong!
    • I am Catholic and I totally understand. At my home parish, there is a layman who has celiac.  He has arranged to have these hosts ordered from the Benedictine sisters of Perpetual adoration. http://www.benedictinesisters.org/ At the beginning  mass, anyone who needs a gluten-free hose can take it from the main receptacle and place it in a special pix.  The priest has them and they are consecrated and with the priest.    He is handling the gluten and the gluten-free host back and forth.  But, I talked to this fellow and he said that he has not had any symptoms of cross-contamination and he is fairly sensitive.   I am celiac but really don't get any obvious symptoms so I can't tell you if cross-contamination is an issue or not   I also partake in the wine,  but I try to sit in the first or second row( to be the first to drink the wine)  to limit cross-contamination.  I make sure to be aware if the priest Saying mass puts a small piece of bread in each chalice (then I do not partake.) psawyer is right though.  Consuming either form of  eucharist is adequate and acceptable.   Often times I just take the wine.   I have considered becoming a Eucharistic minister.  This would completely eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination. If you were the first person to drink from the chalice, there would be no chance of cross-contamination at all.  Traveling is tough.   I often times abstain when I am traveling  but many parishes now offer gluten-free hosts  so I'm sure you could research it  and contact the parish ahead of time. One of my best friends has Ncgs  and he can take the gluten-free host with no trouble.   I know a priest whose nephew is celiac in central Texas. . I haven't talk to him personally about the situation (just his SIL) but I'm sure  he would be happy to talk about it if needed.  I don't know what part of Texas you're in  but let me know.
    • Do you know the specific name of the wheat protein in Nizoral? Thank you!
    • Welcome to the community here. I am not Catholic, but have been a member here for many years, and a moderator for ten. This topic comes up from time to time. I am Episcopalian, similar in most beliefs. Talk to your priest. In my church, receiving one form of communion is sufficient to meet the obligation, so I usually just take the cup. I arrange with the priest to be first in line, lest the cup be contaminated from another communicant. For the wafer to qualify in the Roman Catholic Church, it must be made from wheat. There are some sources of low-gluten wafers, but I have no personal experience with the. The Episcopalian (Anglican) church allows a wafer that does not contain wheat.
