Grain Fed Poultry And Meats

I have been unofficially diagnosed with Celiac for three years now, and it has taken me three years to fully understand a gluten free diet. Now I ask the question: Do grain fed livestock have an affect on my system?

Last month I went on a camping trip, and as I lay in a field of hay... I could only wonder if every breath I took was harming me...I know that gluten is only supposed to affect your digestive system, but if I am breathing it in, it follows through my nose and into my throat (and therefore absorbed through my saliva?)

As for eating chicken and beef, is that safe as well? There is a lot of labeling for purely grain fed livestock, but I have never hear of this affecting celiacs...

Any thoughts or experiences welcome!

It is generally accepted that meat is gluten-free no matter what the animal was fed. It is definitely not something that I worry about.

i doubt it is anything to worry about too. i DID read a recent study about gluten being found in human breast milk(from the mother's consumption).. and the author of the article suggested that it's a possibility that we may have a problem on our hands with grain fed dairy products..???

i try to get grass fed dairy at whole foods... but i dont stress when i have to get regular organic dairy. honestly, i probably should be avoiding dairy anyways.. but you know, baby steps...

Well hay is usually alfalfa not wheat. Alfalfa is gluten free...but some farmers to rotate their fields to grow alfalfa during one season and wheat during another. So alfalfa can be CC'd.

    • Sorry you're feeling poorly Have you seen this page: https://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2015/07/27/getting-off-ppis-can-be-a-challenge/ I think you can get gluten free DGL, maybe worth a try?
    • I could be wrong but Methotrexate is an immune suppressant so it may affect Celiac testing. I have seen this mistake made with other people with RA. It may be that the only way you will know if it will help is to continue eating gluten free for awhile and see how well it does with the pain levels you have.  Or...have the biopsy.  But, again, will the medication affect that also?
    • Welcome! YES! Some of us who have problems with gluten do not test positive to celiac tests. There is a term for this, non celiac gluten sensitive NCGS and this could explain your symptoms. Having said that, it would be a good idea if you hunted down the actual results of your celiac tests and posted them here. It's possible that your doctors didn't perform the full range of tests and some celiacs only test positive to one of these.  I would first double check on the tests, but once that's resolved you could keep a food diary, a very simple not of what you eat, when you eat it and how you feel. You then introduce a new food perhaps one week at a time and monitor the results. I would start with dairy but I don't know that there's a right or wrong answer. Best of luck. I think regardless of testing you've probably found an answer and that you will probably want to stay gluten free.  Either way you've found a good site and you will have lots of support if you need it Good luck.

    • I am not sure that the thought that your antibodies go down because there is nothing left to attack is true.  If you reach that point, then you should continually have to increase your dosage of thyroid hormone.  You would need full replacement dose that is given to those whose thyroid's have been removed.  I am no doctor so I could be totally wrong. My thyroid antibody number went to 1200 before my diagnosis of Celiac.  I kept my TSH almost suppressed and went by T3 and T4 numbers only.  After about 8 years gluten free, my antibodies went into the normal range.  I figured it was because my inflammation levels went way down after removing the cause of it.....gluten. I now take a smaller dose of thyroid hormone as my regular dose than before I was diagnosed with Celiac.
