I've been a celiac for almost a year now and have been scared to ingest any gluten . Not only because of the symptoms but also because of the long term effects. I havent intentionally ingested gluten this whole time. I think I have experienced the cross contamination tho. But never intentionally ate gluten . What will happen if I do eat a fair amount ? Will my symptoms freak out ?

I had 100's of symptoms when I was ingesting gluten but one of them was NOT vomiting. I got glutened off of a supposidly gluten free menu at a restaurant and half way through the meal I had to run to the bathroom to throw up. I have heard others say the symptoms are worse once you rid your body of gluten too.

For me the effects are much worse with heavy accidental injestion than before I went gluten free. My intestines never bled before I went gluten free but now if I accidentally get a good dose of it I bleed for days. I am very careful with my diet for that reason.

Is something tempting you to 'cheat'? If so please post what you are craving in either the coping or food section and chances are someone can give you a good gluten free alternative.

I had a feeling that the symptoms might get worse after not exposing your body to gluten . I was just hopping they didnt. Vomiting has never been a symptom of mine eather , but ive only been a celiac for a year. do you mind if i ask how long it took your body to heal ?

I was hopping that the symptoms would get easier, but it makes sence that the body would react more drastically after not being exposed for so long.ive never experienced vomiting but i do experiance severe nausea and cant keep my eyes focused almost every time ive been glutened.I know within 15 minutes if ive had any gluten. but it has always been small amounts accidentally. I havent had cravings yet. yeah i miss some things but knowing if i eat it my health will be damaged helps me say no. But thank you id love some new recipies.i havent got very many since im a newbie. id love to hear about both of your experiences as celiacs if you wouldnt mind sharing.Im the only celiac in my family and dont know a whole lot about it.thankyou so much for your comments :)

I was wondering the same thing! I went gluten free for the first time recently. I went for about two weeks. I grabbed a bite of popcorn from the movie theater thinking that it would be safe. Not long after my throat felt kinda like it was tighter... Not like an allergy...just felt weird. Within an hour or so my stomach bloated up like crazy/hurt. It felt like there was a bowling ball in my belly. And THEN later on that night my boyfriend saw that I had this weird rash all over my back!! Ive never had that symptom before! So I looked up info on the popcorn. It said that some popcorn salts/butters might contain gluten through means such as artificial flavorings etc. Anyhoo...the rash thing was new and thats why I was wondering if my body was freaking out more than normal because it was used to being gluten free.

Actually, most, if not all movie theater popcorn and fake butter is gluten-free. What's in the fake butter might be scary.

Also, in the US you can't " hide" wheat. It must be declared in the ingredients. It's really not that sneaky.

Yeah Ive read most is safe. I was at a non-chain movie theater so i'm wondering what they used on it. After the reaction I saw lots of sites saying the flavorings etc could be a problem. Im not sure since im still new to this but thats the only thing I ate at the time. So now i'm scared of trying out the mom and pop places, lol. I guess I should stick to Cinemark.

Yes your symptoms can get worse.

In fact, I recall reading a thread just the other day on the forum that had a link to an abstract to a paper. The thread was about wishing some treatment used on mice were available for people to use, since the results were promising.

When I read the abstract, I was actually more surprised about how they got gluten sensitive mice to use for the study. They bred 3 generations of mice that didn't eat any gluten...

dumbfounded and Wendy Lee

I could not agree more. I was just diagnosed with Celiac, Dermatitis Hepetiformis and Hashimoto's all within the last 7 weeks. My Dr gave me a list of resources and this forum was on it. I am so grateful. Aside from one friend, who now lives in another state, I knew no one with Celiac. The people here have given me so much information, hope and inspiration. I can't imagine what it would have been like to have Celiac disease 20 years ago with no gluten-free products to speak of, no support groups and no Internet to access it all!

The whole lifestyle change is tough enough but going it alone would be terrifying. Thank you all from the bottom of my achy, itchy, depressed but hopeful heart!!!!!!!

ravenwood,

Do you mind me asking how you know if you are having intestinal bleeds in your small intestine? How scary for you.

ravenwood,

I'm not ravenwood, but I get internal bleeding from gluten too.. basically when you go to the bathroom there's blood. For me, a pretty significant amount (sorry TMI). Or you can have blood showing up in your stool, it makes your stool look black & 'tarry'.

Before I was diagnosed I lived exclusively on gluten, not even kidding. I couldn't get enough. I had lots of symptoms, but none immediately after eating. Now, since I have been gluten free I have the same symptoms when I eat gluten, but much more intense & symptoms I haven't had before, too. I can tell halfway through the meal if there is any gluten in it. In a way I've come to look at it as a good thing; at least I know right away.

That is interesting. My understanding was the bleeding was a sign that the issue is not celiac but something else like crohns.

I was wondering the exact same thing and was about to post before I saw this thread. I was gluten-free for a little over two weeks as a "home test," and had to start eating gluten again (for medical testing purposes) beginning last Friday. I am so much more miserable now than I recall being before. I know I was already reaping the benefits of increased energy, no bloating/pain/nausea, etc. when I was off gluten, so there's definitely the comparative aspect (knowing the difference between feeling great/feeling bleh)... but I think, even taking that component out, that symptoms after re-glutening are more intense and misery-making. Mine seem to be, anyway.

It will completely depend on your own body. Mine tends to freak out when I have large amounts of gluten and I get very severe joint paint with a mirgraine but it doesn't always come with a stomach ache. The joint pain is a new phenomena for me as I usually have IBS and other stomach problems.

It might take days/weeks for your body to heal completely after ingesting gluten.

I am new to the gluten free diet, and still trying to figure out exactly what is wrong with me. I have started a gluten free diet as a trial, and after going completely gluten free for two weeks I accidentally ingested some gluten in a rotisserie chicken. I had the same throat problem as you! I thought I was crazy! It felt like I had something stuck in my throat. And my stomach got really distended like I was 3 months pregnant, cramped like crazy, and I thought for sure I was going to throw up. It's reassuring to read that I am not the only one going through this

I know everyone's body is diffrent but for me my symptoms are more severe the longer it has been between accidental ingestion. This last time was extremely painful. I had all of my normal symptoms of gluten ingestion- too many to list- but this time in addition to my usual post gluten kidney infection i now have an outbreak of shingles. So to me it's not worth the few moments of guilty pleasure.

    • Do a little research?  Google and then check out the manufacturers and see what is available in your area?  Read some threads about products that people are discussing and look them up?  I think most of us know what we can get in our area but would have no clue about where companies ship to or how they handle wholesale transactions. You haven't said what type of business - a bakery? Grocery?  Restaurant?   I think that if you are really serious about a "gluten-free business" you would put a bit of work into it. 
    • That doctor is delaying unnecessarily! If he's been sick for 2 months already, another 3 months is cruel and unusual.
    • IT could be many things, I find I have a gastric dumping issue with some meals, I know some food intolerance I have will trigger it. I know If I do not start my day with a big glass of hot liquid and magnesium and have it before a meal, that meal will sit it my stomach till it makes me sick and vomit it up 4-6 hours later. I know for me meats do not digest. they just sit in my stomach til I vomit them back up. Animal fats and certain oils do not digest same thing. just float in my stomach til I puke them up when they start going rancid in my stomach 4-6 hours later. I find digestive enzymes are a MUST. I take 2-4 times the suggested dosing, and even extra bromine with heavy protein meals.

      There is another issue where some people have weak stomach acid there for the stomach does not digest food nor dump it. If you have this issue then betaine hcl will help this. For me it was not my acid but a enzyme issue.
    • I want to establish a gluten free business and i want to know the accredited suppliers for gluten free products in order not to get cheated by fake products from suppliers  is there a list available ? And can they export to other countries ?!  Thanks 
    • I am sorry that your daughter (and you) are experiencing this.  After diagnosis, celiacs need adequate follow-up care.  When was the last time her antibodies were checked?  Have they come down?  Are they still very elevated?  This link verifies what I said: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ By testing you can help rule out active celiac disease.  It can take most celiacs a year or years to recover from celiac disease and all the collateral damage that can come with it.   Then you might consider a dietician who is knowledgeable about celiac disease.  Often going gluten free is not enough.  People tend to just find substitutes for their already unhealthy food choices.  She should focus on fresh fruits, veggies, meat, nuts, dairy, legumes, rice, etc.  and avoid processed foods until she has really mastered the diet.  The learning curve is so steep!  Read our Newbie 101 thread found at the top of our Coping section.  It contains helpful tips.   Autoimmune thyroid is very common with celiac disease.  Be sure to have her thyroid checked and antibodies tested for the thyroid as well even if other thyroid lab markers are okay.   Besides the lack of periods, have her other symptoms improved?   I wish you both well!  As a Mom myself, I get the worry!  We want our kids to be safe and healthy!    I am glad you are championing her health!   Oh, did the rest of the family get tested even if symptom free?
