How Long After Gluten Before Reaction?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My oldest ds just went gluten-free for 10 weeks and started back on gluten yesterday. He was fine yesterday, but having diarrhea today (about 24 hours after gluten exposure). Does this sound like a gluten reaction? I was expecting a quicker reaction if gluten was the problem, but I don't really know how quickly someone with celiac might react to gluten either.

It's taken me as long as three days to have my anxiety reaction to gluten, and it usually takes at least six hours for my GI effects to appear. 24 hours is well within the realm of normal.

Used to take me about a day. Now it seems to be ~3 hours.

A reaction to gluten depends on the individual. I notice a reaction as soon as a couple of minutes of being exposed but can still feel the effects of the glutening a couple of days later. I'm newly gluten free though, so I've got no idea if I'm continually glutening myself without realizing, I'm still learning about it all.

Your son's reaction seems fairly typical from what I've read. My doctors are still finding out whether I have an allergy to wheat as well as an intolerance, so my instant reaction could be more allergy related.

Thank you for your responses. My biggest worry was not having a clear gluten-related reaction and still feeling like we don't know for sure. We have a pretty clear reaction. Ds has had diarrhea all afternoon, barely making it to the bathroom at times. He's never had anything remotely like this before, so I'm pretty sure it's the gluten.

Not to be harsh...but WHY would anyone with Celiacs PURPOSELY POISON THEMSELVES or why would you allow it!(if hes a minor...you weren't clear on that)

ITS POISON!!! :blink::blink::blink::angry::huh:

Take it from me and all those of us who were unkowingly poisoned from an early age and now have Really BAD nerological side affects...we'd have given ANYTHING to have been diagnosed EARLY..BEFORE the LONG TERM DAMAGE THAT DOES"NT SHOW UP TILL YOUR OLDER...BELEIVE ME!!!!

WTF...YOUR HIS MOM!!! sorry to be harsh...but THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT....MAYBE EVEN LIFE CHANGING!!!

If Someone had even THOUGHT to test me for food alergies...let alone GLUTEN...MY life definatly would be different!!! It may olnly be diarrea now...but later if not checked...who knows..are you willing to take that chance...hes your BABY!!! :blink::D

One of the members lost her brother at the age of 15 to celiacs...and a parent too I think...but you get my point! :huh:

Calm down! Sounds like they didn't have the positve tests to prove he has celiac so they were testing it via dietary response. Lots of people here have to do that when they are trying to figure things out. I'm sure they plan to keep him gluten-free for good now that he has a clear reaction. No need to accuse people of poisioning their kids. ETA: This is the PRE-diagnosis forum. And based on her siggy her son is 5 with negative tests. Dietary response and positive genes is all some people have to get a diagnosis.

Staceyshoe: It does sound like a very clear reaction. My reactions take anywhere from 24 to 48 hours to manifest themselves so his delayed reaction is normal as others said.

It's okay girl! I'm with you on gluten being poison, but sometimes you need to learn all the details before you pounce on someone. This a friendly board--we try to give people the benefit of the doubt. Some people do come here and admit they can't stop eating gluten (or can't stop their kids from sneakign it) even though it makes them sick. Those people need help. Scolding them isn't going to help them. Giving them the facts about what it's doing to them might help. Giving them ways to deal (like suggesting gluten-free alternatives) can help too.

Sniff...sniff....OK !! :(

After every thing I've read, Learned, been through and discovered latley.....It kinda FREAKED me out that after ALL the HORROR stories...someone would KNOWINGLY give a kid that they KNEW was celiac...gluten...especially after the poor kid just went 10 weeks without! I mean...REALLY! :blink:

I'm sorry I've only been on this site for 2 weeks or so.... and am still detoxing myself!!! Its making me a little HYPER..and overly sensitive...I'll have to watch that..I didn't realize what a spaz I've been lately..!!!

I was diagnosed 8/3/11 . :(

I'll be more careful...

I'm still sad and very depressed though!!! :(:(:(

I took mine to a bakery for a few minutes yesterday which was enough obviously to make her sick :(

We went in and I bought one of the loaves that they have out already in the bag then paid then left.

This afternoon my poor baby has been really sick :'( all because I told my mum I'd pick up bread for her on the way home!

But yeah it took about 20 hours before the complaint started but I know she'll be really vague for the next few days and irritable too.

No it wasn't on purpose! I won't have it in the house normally but it was for my mum who threw it at me after a 10 hour shift to pick it up on the way home otherwise we haven't been into a bakery all year.

I know this was from 5 years ago but my reaction is the same I get bloated and tummy troubles with in a few hours but crazy anxiety about 48 hours later. Skylark how long before your anxiety stops this last time it took almost 5 days before I started to feel like myself. Is there a way to get the gluten out of our system faster so we don't suffer for days?

    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
    • If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer in food ...

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
