Kissing

So I was just wondering. How likely is it that I can get glutened from kissing a girl who has not been eating or drinking recently. Is it possible to get it from her lip stick or make up. I would think that the amount of exposure I would get would be far below the recommended daily allowance of gluten exposure.

There are a few threads on kissing here on celiac.com. put kissing in the search.

I have been glutened by kissing someone after they ate gluten.

Most people recommend gluten eaters brush before kissing Celiac partners.

You have to decide.

I didn't really believe kissing could gluten me.

I was rewarded with a huge migraine headache and nausea and D that lasted 2 days.

I am a believer now. I call it the Kiss of Death now.

My dp's friend stopped by tonight. He has torette's syndrome and likes to drink beer. DP and I are about the only people that treat him like normal, everyone else thinks he's a freak.

I let Denny kiss me on the face, we have big hugs and big kisses, but I know they're just planted on my cheeks. (I'm careful about letting him come close to my mucous membrane though.) Your mouth is a mucus membrane. :ph34r: You have to be beware.

I remember that this topic was covered in "Celiac Disease: The Unknown Epidemic" by Dr. Peter Green. I'm fairly certain he wrote that he felt it was unlikely to ingest enough gluten from a kiss, but acknowledged that lipstick is one of the most likely cosmetics to be ingested. That book was pretty good, by the way.

I read that too.

I guess it depends on how serious the kiss is. :rolleyes:

And of course how much gluten remains in the kisser. ;)

Lipstick would be more valid, rather that the last meal (unless it was immediate or really passionate)....IMHO :rolleyes:

Yea it makes a lot more sense. If you consider how mch gluten is in an ounce of bread and then realize how much is in a few milligrams of lipstick/past ingested food, it does not come close to the upper tolerance levels

If you find a girl you want to kiss more than once, buy her Merle Norman lipstick, or better yet get her a gift certificate and they'll pick the right shade of lipstick. It's gluten-free.

I have twin 5 year old girls who are likely to be confirmed Celiac this week. Thank goodness someone mentioned lipstick: 5 year olds have a way of going haywire with lipstick application. I've spent HOURS trying to find play makeup which is gluten free...and have now spent a CHUNK of money on adult lipstick to compensate for the fact that I'll have to clear out their play makeup this week! Poor kiddos: growing up so fast with a real illness...now real makeup...crazy! BTW I bought the 100% pure lip glosses :)

Big thanks for all the great discussions you all!
