How long does it take if you accidentally ate gluten

I have tried GF for 60 days, definitely feel better.

30 years doctors said it was IBS, but I never really believed it.

I decided to 'test' the theory and had a roll for lunch.
within 3 hours I felt cramping. next day I had over 5 bowel movements in the morning with slight cramping, felt like I was having one of my usual flare ups prior to going GF. I knew right then It had to be the roll. 60 days I was really starting to feel normal!

So the question is: how long will it take for the body to recover from this recent gluten attack? And How long before the intestinal tract is healed from the inflammation of gluten over the past years?? I had to take Pepto Bismol, as I could not take it anymore. Took about an hour to work.

Trust me, after this scenario I will adhere to gf, although as you know it is hidden in alot of things but I am learning. Your reply is appreciated.



thanks
Maureen

It takes as long as it takes
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Maureen,

Unfortunately, it will simply take as long as it takes. Everyone is very different for every single person and every person is going to be effected differently. Some people can even eat the one roll without any problems, while obviously you can't.

It's just going to be a matter of finding exactly what you can and can't eat and how long it takes for YOU to recover when you do eat gluten..

So, it's up to you to simply pay attention to your body and finding out what works best for you...

Gluten vs. Greast
by: Maureen

Hello. I have been on gluten free diet for 3 months - and feel and see a difference. I am Gluten Sensitive. However I had a minor flareup last week due to us being out all day and nothing was around for lunch except McDonalds which I never eat. I settled on 4 Chicken nuggets and took off the breading and had a few french fries. About 12 hours later I was feeling sick - for about 8 hours - diarhea and loose stools, had to resort to immodium.

The next day I felt really tired. But within a day I was totally fine and back to myself again. Do you think the McD really caused this? Or was it the oil that they use? To be honest if I have Burger King Chicken Tenders, which I did taste around holidays and I had no reaction. Now I have to travel with food.

I was doing so good, 3 months no flareups - even forgot what is was like to worry about where the next restroom was when out shopping. Problem is immodium it slows things down for awhile. Your input is appreciated.

No Idea
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Maureen,

I wish that I could answer that for you, but I wouldn't have any idea any better than you would as to which one would have caused your problems.

It could have been neither and been salmonella in the chicken! I just could have no way of knowing.

In any case, you found out that you shouldn't eat McDonald's chicken tenders- and that's good to know.
You'll just have to find what works for you and what doesn't and avoid what doesn't.

Unfortunately, there is no formula that works for everyone- which is why dietary advice is so confusing. Everyone is an individual and must find what works and doesn't work for them.

McDonald's
by: Anonymous

I know for a fact that McDonald's french fries are not gluten free. They have stated it on their website that they use some sort of flour on the fries before they fry them.

Skip the fast food places all together!
