Hi. I roommate made three batches of full gluten cupcakes on Thursday with me sitting in the living room. I didn't know she was baking. I just thought she was putting away her groceries. But nope, sure enough she was baking and pouring flour right there next to me. Even though I told her to let me know when she cooks with flour so that I can go down to my room. Anyways, its two days latter and I started feeling really nauseated, D, gassy, and major anxiety yesterday and it is worse today. Did her baking cause this reaction?

It sure is a possibility that the flour becoming airborne has effected you. But there is also the chance of utensils having some gluten still on them afterward, and you might have gotten glutened from that.

You didn't mention it, but you should have all your own dedicated gluten-free utensils and such, especially the kind which gluten can cling to.

Do you usually have a delayed reaction like this, or are your reactions more immediate?

If it's delayed for you more often, then I'd say it could definitely be an issue.

But usually, I'd agree with RiceGuy's supposition - if she is using flour, that dust gets everywhere. Unless everything nearby was cleaned thoroughly afterward, it could have gotten you - faucet handle, microwave or oven handle or burner knobs, toaster oven controls, drawer handles - it all tends to get a little messy when flour's in the air. :-(

    • Hello I m new at this forum. I am 24 years old. My mother and I have hypothyroidism and a day before I found out about celiac, the symptoms of celiac and hypothyroidism are almost similar and i have read that both diseases can go hand in hand. I have felt that every time when i eat macaroni and spicy rice  I have loose stool. I eat whole wheat loaf and that doesnt bother me at all. So I want to order tests for tTG IgA and immunoglobulin IgA . I m not on gluten free diet so do i need to have more gluten before tests???
    • Wow!  My kid  did a 5th grade project on cancer-sniffing dogs.  Besides her written report, we demonstrated a dog's ability to sniff out "cancer" by bringing in our Labrador.    My daughter trained our lab to find a tiny bit of food hidden in cups.  I have joked before about the need for a dog who could sniff out gluten.  My bet is that the dog would beat out a portable sensor, but maybe it is because I am partial to dogs: I found this video today about this very subject: http://www.today.com/health/gluten-sniffing-dogs-help-people-celiac-disease-t112149
