If you have a gluten sensitivity or celiac, how long after eating gluten would you react?

Question by Jimmy Hendrix: If you have a gluten sensitivity or celiac, how long after eating gluten would you react?
I get stomach grumbling and I think it’s from gluten, I want to know how long after you eat something with gluten would it take to react and how long would it last?

Best answer:

Answer by Shauna

It depends greatly on the individual.

Some people get bloating and/or stomach/bowel problems 24-48 hours after they ingest gluten. Some get tummy trouble as soon as it hits the stomach. Some get stomach pain, some get vertigo, some get vomiting, some get joint pain and brain fog. I am a celiac who gets a neurological response within 2 minutes of ingesting gluten, which makes my words slur and knocks me down with vertigo. Truly, it can be a surprising number of reactions.

It can last a few days or weeks, depending on how much gluten was eaten and how quickly a person’s body can heal.

You can get a blood test for celiac disease, though, which might be able to help. Gluten intolerance, you just have to do an elimination diet. However, once you start the elimination diet, the celiac disease test will be negative, so it’s a good idea to get that before starting the diet, if possible.

How long does it take for an adult diagnosed with celiac to get better?

Question by Kitty C: How long does it take for an adult diagnosed with celiac to get better?
I was diagnosed about 5 months ago and I have good days, then I’ll get sick from something and not sure what it is because I have definitely not ingested any gluten. I’m wondering how long it will take before I’m better and can assume that it’s a bug rather than my disease.

Someone with celiac doesn’t ever get better as you put it. Gluten is hidden in a lot of different things and it can be very tricky to detect sometimes. Also anything with casien in it can sometimes make a celaic’s life even more miserable. Casein is found in a lot of dairy products. The best way to manage celiac is to always be on the watch for anything that might have gluten in it and to approach things with caution if you don’t if they have gluten in them. Gluten can also be found in other non food products so you have to be wary of that also. The best thing that you can do though is to arm yourself with knowledge and learn everything that you can about your disease.

How long after eating gluten does a rash occur when you have Dermatitis Herpetiformis (Celiac of the Skin)?

Question by Koalamy: How long after eating gluten does a rash occur when you have Dermatitis Herpetiformis (Celiac of the Skin)?

Looking more for information as to how long after eating gluten before rash appears – I assume it’s not as quick as the GI issues but not sure. I don’t eat gluten – but have had restaurant mishap.

It usually lasts 1-2 weeks, but it depends on your gluten intake. The more cautious you are with your diet, the sooner it will disappear.

Q&A: How long should I be on a Gluten Free Diet before I know if it is helping?

Question by expedition: How long should I be on a Gluten Free Diet before I know if it is helping?
I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and was suggested that I try a gluten free diet to see if it will help. I’ve been on it for 4 weeks and was told to go at least 6 weeks on the diet. I haven’t seen any changes in how I feel. I’ve been told that I could try the diet for three months to see how I feel. I want to know if I should be seeing a change already or to go for a three month stretch.

Ok, couple of questions first.

How sure are you that you have completely eliminated gluten from your diet? Actually, the fact that you are wanting to come off it may be an indication that you are following it properly, but we are all different, so… How many take out meals have you had in the 4 weeks? Almost certainly, any take away meal will contain gluten in one form or another. Have you eaten any Chinese or Thai food? Did you spend the huge sum needed to buy gluten free soya sauce when you cooked it? Have you eaten any low fat yoghurts or seafood sticks? They contain gluten.

I’m sorry if I sound as if I’m nagging or anything, I’m just trying to point out the many ways you could be ingesting gluten without realising it. And there are others.

Now, if you are sure you have been gluten free for the past 4 weeks, and you are also sure that you see no difference in your energy levels, then most likely it isn’t doing anything for you. But before you go overboard and head off to the shops to buy in a load of bread, pastries, cakes and cookies, just try something like maybe a pot noodle, and see what your reaction is. Don’t forget the reaction may be delayed by up to 36 hours.

If there’s no reaction, then you might like to try dairy instead of gluten as your potential irritant.

Just got diagnosed with celiac disease. How long will it take to feel energetic again after giving up gluten?

Question by H M: Just got diagnosed with celiac disease. How long will it take to feel energetic again after giving up gluten?
Doc just told me I have celiac disease and said to cut out gluten products. He said that I would notice I’m much more energetic and I’d feel a lot better after a while. I’m a healthy and active 23-year-old guy. Anybody know how long it could take to actually start gaining weight and feeling better like the doc said?

Answer by Yahnswers Guru
It’ll take time, and the duration would depend on how much gluten has affected your system. But it’ll probably be better in a few weeks.

With celiac, how long after not eating gluten will I start to feel better?

Question by addie: With celiac, how long after not eating gluten will I start to feel better?
I was diagnosed with celiac last week. I stopped eating gluten right away. How long does it take for everything that was making me feel bad to get out of my system? And, does anyone have any advice. This seems like such a drag. Thanks.

Answer by Glutenfreegirl
Hi! It can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks (or longer!) to really see improvement, but that varies depending on your age (the younger u are when diagnosed, the better) and how true u are getting gluten out. Even many experienced Celiacs accidentally eat gluten often and its very tricky to get it all out. Please feel free to email me for further help but I think you’ll find these sites and books helpful for a newbie Celiac! 🙂
