I am kinda curious how long it takes others to feel the effects when they accidently take in gluten. My doctor wants to do some gluten challenges to confirm the diagnosis, but it seems like the cramping will start a few hours after I eat gluten, but the other symptoms such as severe pain and diarrhea take about two days. Anyone else have this long of a delay?

Yes, for me it's usually the next day. Sometimes it takes two. I get depressed and lethargic. If a headache is going to come, it is the first to show up--usually within hours! What's so weird about this "disease" is how different and similiar it is for everybody! :rolleyes:

I know this varies from person to person. But I may get cramping and severe bloating within 2-4 hours. I don't get diarrhea though, I get severe constipation which I feel for days after. There are sometimes I even throw up, which happens about once every 3 months. For me it can take 3-5 days to feel 100% better (sometimes even as long as a 7 days)

If you feel better on the diet, please continue. Only you know your limitations. Unless you want to pursue further testing, don't eat gluten if it makes you sick. You can conclude that you have a gluten intolerance of some level in the spectrum range. No need to satisfied your doctor's confidence or lack of, with your continued illness. Many, many people here are self diagnosed and feel quite comfortable in those shoes. :)

I don't react right away. The next day the fatigue, lethargic feelings, brain fog, dizziness and extreme emotional upset start. Then I know it's coming. Usually the day after that the actual pain and stomach upset comes. But I know a girl who says she reacts immediately, ven while she's eating the culprit soni suppose it can be different for everyone.

Yeah if you feel better on the diet stay on the diet. I had a GI doctor tell me I was crazy for staying on the diet because I had positive blood tests but negative scope (that was done 3 months later). I told my regular doctor, there was no way i was going back to eating gluten because I like being able to think, I do better in school. I've passed a test that I had taken literally 7 times and passed it with flying colors. I can actually run and push passed that wall I couldn't get passed and all my peers could.

Do what makes you feel good. Even if your doctor doesn't agree with you. YOu sometimes need to be your own advocate and tell the doctors what is going to happen.

For me it takes three days for symptoms to show. Then another three days before they are better.

Amen to that, docs are so blinkered and full of their own gusto sometimes...no, actually, generally.

I usually have a painful reaction within about 30 minutes and the after-effects can last for days.

Hi everyone,

Just wondering if someone can give me some input. I've been doing the gluten free thing for two weeks now (after numerous negative tests) and have noticed a hugh difference. I'm wondering how long you have to be on the diet before you notice a reaction if you eat gluten. Also, since being on the diet I've experienced at time extreme heartburn, maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Would love any advise or suggestions.

With regards - Karen

Heartburn, or GERD are something you'll deal with as you heal. It takes time. I know a lot of people feel great right away, but it's also normal to have it take a while before you feel better.

I recommend keeping a log of what you eat, and make a note if you have any symptoms. Sometimes it helps you narrow down things that just aren't agreeing with you right now. Digestive enzymes might help too?

I'm 3.5 months into gluten-free and still experience a lot of symptoms. I'm told it's normal for the amount of damage I have to my system.

Hang in there..and make sure you aren't getting cc from something.

I have been gluten free since 2004 and chocolate will get me every time, within a half hour, with regard to reflux.

Yes, keep a food log. And it took me up to six months before I realized I had a gluten reaction. All food created a reaction after first diagnosed. Dairy delayed my physical recovery for a while and then every thing settled down.

I am convinced that to master the diet takes a good six months. It can get complicated.

I swear these doctors are flipping morons. They get their degrees from a clown university.

Please tell your doctor to piss off and do not do gluten challenges. There are some on this board who got extremely ill and damaged because their doctors did this to them. One of them is in a wheelchair now. As a matter of fact I think it's insane for them to keep you on gluten making you sicker for endoscopy after positive blood tests. I flat refused to stay on gluten for endoscopy once I got positive blood tests. There was no way. I had just been in the hospital from being so sick. That was crazy to me.

If gluten makes you sick you have celiac. Period. Gluten does not make people sick if they don't have it. My advin ce to you is, tell people you have celiac and tell them you got blood tests done to confirm it. That way no family and friends question you. If this doctor gives you grief find a new one. Tell the new doc you have celiac and don't explain the details. When you go to a new doc with a diagnosis already, they never ask to see the original blood tests. If they ask you how you got diagnosed, tell them blood tests and let it go. They write it on your chart and go about their business. Especially since you don't need drugs for this. Otherwise, people will question you and make your life more difficult. My son was negative on blood tests and was diagnosed by dietary response. When people ask, which is rare, I tell them it was his blood tests. It's none of their business anyway. And never ever call it gluten intolerance. People think intolerance is not a big deal or even think it's made up. Tell them you have an allergy to gluten and it's severe. The word allergy makes them think of throats closing up and makes them perk up and listen.

As for the person who posted that they had positive blood and negative endoscopy, once again the brilliant clown college doctors at work. When they do endoscopy they pick like 4 tiny spots to look at. That's awfully easy to just choose the wrong spots and miss the damaged bits. I think it's a joke that they call endoscopy the "gold standard." Yeah, the gold lining all those doctor's pockets when they do a surgical procedure on you instead of a simple blood test.

I would also add...the small intestine that is biopsied for a DX is long. The scope doesn't reach the whole thing. While it's more common to have the damage from Celiac near the duodenum where they take samples, you could have damage outside of the range of the scope. Some people get an "all clear" from negative biopsy when in fact, they do have Celiac disease.

It can't hurt anyone to try a gluten-free diet to see if they feel better when omitting it.

    • Reality check in the past few weeks, looks like I got glutened at what should be a "safe" restaurant for gluten-free and gone right back to the beginning again recovery-wise Now too scared to eat anywhere and turning down social opportunities because of the food issues, what a miserable way to live this is.
    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice.
