Question by Rumbly: Do Celiacs always feel bad (stomach, GI issues) after eating gluten everytime?
If yes, was this only since you were diagnosed and went gluten-free? Or did this happen before you realized you had celiac?
Answer by tiggsy
Once they have been following the gluten free diet for a number of months, and the lesions have had a chance to heal, there should not be any issues after eating, unless the food contained gluten.
Celiacs who have been “glutened” will feel bad after eating. This isn’t particularly unusual – although it is dangerous – especially if they eat out at a restaurant or even go to a friend’s house for dinner.
Feeling bad after eating gluten is often the symptom that prompts a visit to the doctor, and eventual diagnosis of celiac disease.
