Are anyone else extremely sensitive to gluten and experience an immediate reaction from consuming?

      How do those that are super sensitive go about eating at restaurants? I literally haven’t eaten at a restaurant in probably 5 years now due to how often I get sick from cross contamination. But I also have cut out dairy and eggs since then so it feels like it’s impossible to even try.

      Yes. Middle of my meal I’m dizzy and running to the bathroom with pain. 😖

      Mine comes after an hour but I start projectile vomiting. The worst is when I try to sleep I off and I wake up half way through. My intestines have to dredge everything back out.

      @emilyoso I have a few brands I’m trying out but I like “Gluten Comfort - Tolerase” and “GliadinX” for when I know I’ll be eating cross contaminated food. (There’s a bunch more, try googling!) I also recently started taking the “Celiact” supplements and those help TREMENDOUSLY with fatigue and brain fog related to gluten :)

      I’ve started taking gluten pills (similar to lactose intolerant pills) whenever I know I’ll be eating cross contaminated food! They’ve helping with all of the exposure symptoms for me.

      I’m so sensitive! Within 10 minutes I’m so sick and down for the count. I don’t really have a thing that helps besides sleeping it off and drinking a lot of water. It’s awful and I’m sorry you go through it too. ❤️

      I don’t have issues with constipation unless I eat too many gluten free store bought items. I try to eat more of an anti inflammatory diet due to other medical issues and so I do a lot of vegetables, protein, etc. My most used store bout gf are pretzel sticks, bread here and there, and graham crackers. I do brown rice pasta instead of gluten free. I’ll make a smoothie or protein shake and add mct oil which works a lot like miralax, in that it helps keep things moving smoothly, plus it has lots of other benefits. But it’s a natural thing instead of medicinal. You only need a little bit and you can’t taste it. I would say try to back up from the gluten free items a little bit, add mct and see if that helps.

      Yeah at my house I also keep my own butter and peanut butter . Also soy sauce and teriyaki sauce. It’s crazy all the stuff we have to watch out for from meds to food down to the simple flavorings that go into drinks . This might me to much into but does anyone else get the constant constipation for a week and then diarrhea for a week ? This is all the time I have no happy medium. I try miralax every day and nothing . I’ve gone to my doc about this and all she can tell me is gluten free diet and gives me bentyl for the bloating ( which does help slightly) . I am also diabetic so have to worry about that too . FYI my doc says there is a correlation between the two so everyone should get their A1c done just to see where you are 😊

      Mine usually comes on within a few minutes to an hour. Depending on how much was contaminating my food. I seriously have my own butter and peanut butter because my kids aren’t great about keeping crumbs out of them and I can’t risk it.

      Holy cow that's awful! I'm so sorry you have that bad of a reaction. I don't have any idea of what would help with that reaction. 4 people in my family including myself, have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity in general and none of us have this severe of a reaction so I have no idea how to even begin to alleviate that. I usually experience symptoms of nausea and vomiting, a sudden wave of tiredness and sometimes diarrhea too. I'm sorry I can't be of more help but I'd recommend talking to your doctor or a healthcare professional to try and soothe the issue.

      I am extremely sensitive to gluten . With in 15 min I will have symptoms . Not fun at all. I get so bloated I look like I am 9 months pregnant . Have you found anything to help when that happens?

      It's not immediate for me, it varies from a couple minutes to a couple hours depending on how much I consume and what it is. I can't even imagine how hard it would be accidentally eating gluten and then having an immediate reaction.
