Since starting my gluten free diet last August I haven’t really felt as though I’ve made manyÂ mistakes as I’ve been feeling so much better. This week however, I’ve been feeling lethargic and irritable and my visits to the toilet remind me of how things were before I was diagnosed 🙁
I’ve been having these symptoms for 5 days now but other than this I’m feeling fine andÂ all of the other horrible symptoms like being bloated are nowhere to be seen. This leaves me wondering whether or not I have been glutenated!Â Does anyone haveÂ advice on how I might be feeling if I did eat gluten by mistake?Â CanÂ having onlyÂ 1 or 2 symptoms suggest glutenation? Also, I’m being so careful that I’m almost certain I haven’t eaten anything unsafe! Could dried dates from Holland and Barrattt really contain gluten? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
UPDATE (from a more experienced me 2 years later) I almost certainly did eat something gluten containing which gave me these symptoms. I don’t need to suffer from the whole range of celiac symptoms like I did prior to my diagnosis to know that I’ve accidentally consumed a little bit of gluten. I much more recently wrote this post on Is it obvious when you eat gluten?. I got some interesting feedback from this article. It appears that to many celiacs it is not so obvious when they eat gluten.
