I ate some pizza with wheat today. Dumb, I know. Believe me, I've learned my lesson.

I thought I would be okay, because it was just part of a piece, but a few hours later I threw up. I had been eating wheat for 16 years before I was diagonosed and never threw it up. I'm 17, and was diagonsosed a couple months ago. Why would I suddenly throw up wheat if I'd been eating it for 16 years with nothing happening? I have been avoiding wheat, besides that pizza.

Perhaps it was somewhat psychological? Once you knew you ate something you should not have, you realized you made a big mistake. And that mentality aided in the regurgitation of food?

It also could have been the combination of dairy and wheat. I found that the older I got the more lactose intolerant I became. I found it harder to keep down all in general, especially milk.

Sarahann, I was eating gluten for 48 years before I went gluten free. Never once could I attribute throwing up with gluten. But now since being gluten-free, I have had the unpleasant feeling of wanting to throw up and throwing up. So it can happen.

I loved to eat bread and pasta and never, ever had a reaction from it. Now a crouton can produce a reaction, usually as diarrhea but I have had nausea too. It is strange but in a way it is also satisfying having the confirmation that my body needs to avoid this stuff.

I'm the same way. It's interesting how are bodies "almost" get used to the gluten.

Hi, my daughter is also 17 and just recently diagnosed. Everything hit her about a year ago this month and it took them a while to figure it out. One of her main symptoms was the vomitting due to the casein in dairy products. Everytime she ate or drank dairy products she would throw up not from the wheat. When I suspected her to have celiac I took her off gluten and she was still vomitting. Then I read on this site to eliminate dairy and when we did no more vomitting. I hope you figure it out. In the meantime you might want to eliminate dairy and see what happens.

I have been gluten free for 3 months now, after realizing I have been celiac for over a decade.. I am now the textbook definition of a super sensitive celiac. I had no stomach symptoms when I was eating gluten, however, I had several other symptoms. Itching and inability to drink whiskey were the 2 things that led me to my answer, as apparently dr.s dont ever seem to get it. Now I have a more sensitive stomach than ever. I believe it is healing..and actually digesting food. Anytime I have even the slightest cross contamination, I vomit now. Boooooo.Usually just once with food. If I drink out of a glass that previously had whisky in it or something I didnt realize had grain alcohol in it, was fermented with wheat, etc..I throw up for 4=6 hours like food poisoning. Clockwork. This is what led me to becoming gluten free and figuring out what the hell was Wrong with me. I am going to be 30 next month. Hopefully I wont sleep through my party! If you are in portland oregon, holler and lets have gluten-free meals! Grass fed animals, as that is all I can eat anymore :) I could use some new styles of food!

    • Thank you! I have been considering lactose, though I'm reluctant to remove more things from her diet. She has not had the classic lactose intolerance symptoms of diarrhea, gas, or bloating, though I know she could still have trouble with it. She's been on the medication for less than a week, so it's not the cause of her symptoms. I did not call the manufacturer but it is listed as safe on glutenfreedrugs.com (under the brand name periactin). It was prescribed by a pediatric GI who specializes in celiac. The first question my daughter had for the doctor was whether the medication is gluten-free, and she told us it was.   
    • cyclinglady, I think Joseph is hoping to exclude celiac disease.   I feel for him, as I also had a hard time accepting my daughter's celiac.      I had this gene test done hoping our GI doctor made a terrible mistake.   But now I have triple prove that my daughter really does have it! I agree with you and others, that if biopsy confirmed celiac disease, you do have celiac disease. (But on occasion, doctors can be wrong, right?) However, I have a distant relative (not related by blood) who thought she had celiac diease for 10 years (no biopsy done), lived a strict gluten free life style, but still suffered from health issues, ended up in the mayo clinic, and found out that she did not have celiac.    She did not have the celiac gene.
    • Our doctor ordered the Prometheus Celiac Plus test for us.   It is some sort of in depth celiac blood test.   This test report showed  which celiac gene my daughter has.   I think you can ask your GI for a celiac blood test with EMA.   When I asked for the EMA test, we got this Celiac plus results back.   I believe Prometheus is the name of the lab. Our insurance paid for this test.   If your insurance won't pay for it, I know there is a lab in Colorado that offer this test for a few hundred bucks.   You have to google for it.   I forgot their name.
    • Why?  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But only a few actually develop it.  It is used to exclude celiac disease and not to diagnose it.  There are some outlier genes too that have been discovered recently, so the gene test is not perfect.   My daughter has tested negative on the antibodies test.  She will have to get retested in the future. But we will not get the gene test.  It may impact her ability to get life insurance or maybe even health!  Just something to consider.  
    • It will turn around, but it probably is going to take more time.  Yes, adhering to the gluten-free diet is critical,  but what doctors fail to tell you is that is can take time for antibodies to decrease.  For some it is a few weeks and for others months to years.   It sounds like you are doing everything right.  Remember, her gut is damaged and eating anything can hurt to digest.  You might consider taking her off dairy for a few weeks until you see improvement.  Then add back in starting with products with the least amount of lactose (e.g. yogurt). Many celiacs are temporarily lactose intolerant.  It might help with the nausea.   When I accidentally get exposed to gluten, I stick with soups and stews, even cooked fruit, like applesauce because it hurts to eat!   Are you sure the medication she is taking is gluten free?  Did you call and confirm with the manufacturer?  Did she have nausea befor she was diagnised?  The side effect of this medication is nausea.  Did the GI prescribe?   Hang in there!
