Default How bad is a gluten slip-up?

I'm attempting to go gluten free to help with hormonal issues, including headaches, weight loss, and acne. I have PCOS, had a tubal, cannot take hormonal birth control. I'm on 3 different medicines for migraines, 3 different medicines for acne, and 5 different vitamins. I'm trying to lose more weight healthily and not divorce-ily. My dermatologist suggested cutting out all sugar and all gluten.

Given all that...how bad is a gluten slip up (usually just a small snack) going to set me back? I'm Italian, there is Italian food EVERYWHERE, and my willpower sucks. 95% of the time I do very, very well, so I'm trying to rationalize my cheats as not excessive, but is it actually something I should try harder at?

For the first bit... To the very beginning. If you think your health is related, then it's at least 14 days to heal it again. After each slip up. But after you've been off it for a while, you might not find you're that sensitive.

It's ~POOP~ty I'm there with you. There are some good gluten free pastas out there.

I am trying to take sugar out and have managed to get most of the dairy out. Gluten is hard.

Yeah, you are looking at weeks for even small exposures to clear your system, and months to years for long-term damage to heal. An example - I've been anemic my entire teen/adult life. I went gluten free 5 years ago, when ds was diagnosed with celiacs. My anemia has been resolving, bit by bit, since that time. I am now at the low end of normal. It took 4 years to get there.

That honestly makes me feel like I shouldn't bother, because I know I'm never going to go 100% all the time.

It takes my dd a good 7-10 days to recover from an accidental exposure

It took me 2 weeks, sometimes more, to recover from a slip. And, took my system months to get back to normal once I got off being GF. I wish I could have done it under a doc's supervision for guidance. Doing it on my own was awful. Never again.

Well, my lifelong cycles of diarrhea/constipation had resolved in a few months after going 100% gluten free. So that was a good selling point for me - I felt remarkably better pretty soon after. It also helped that ds was still nursing, and so I *had* to for him. It's much easier to not cheat when it's going to make your kid sick.

Could you do it 100% for a period of time to see if it actually makes you *feel* better?

For us with Dairy it takes almost a month to get back to square one... I can only imagine Gluten is similar...

For us, when my ODS or I eat dairy we get sick. I actually get so sick to my stomach it is often emergent to be near a bathroom. ODS is the same way, plus hives, skin breakouts and dry skin patches. It is worth not feeling the way we do to avoid the foods. It sucks, I cheat, I get sick and remember why I don't do that any more...

If you don't have celiac disease, there's no reason yo bother. Gluten intolerance is the buzzword of the day, and eliminating gluten doesn't really cure anything.

Except for when it does. So.... I tested negative for celiac, but have similar issues as Andrea when I eat it.

THIS. If you could commit to one month just to figure things out, it might prove to be really valuable.

My DD has the wheat allergy, just diagnosed in January, and it was initially really overwhelming and upsetting for me. But we have, I think, managed really well. She's feeling a lot better and I feel like I can feed her and the rest of us.

I vote for jump in and try it and see how it goes. There really are a lot of alternatives that maybe don't sound appealing now, when you're having delicious gluten, but when you're off it, the alternatives will be tasty.

Or if you have Hashimotos and your body mistakes the gluten for your thyroid or if you have fructose malabsorption and can't handle the fructans in wheat.


Seriously..>Sick of people saying this
