If you have been glutened... how long do you find it takes to get over it?  I slipped over the weekend and am paying the price since Saturday afternoon.  I was just wondering how long it takes to reclaim your body?

For me, it depends on how much gluten I was exposed to. One brief whiff from a bread aisle or in-store bakery and it takes a few days to recover. Accidental exposure through food intake takes about 6 weeks to recover. A week of exposure to gluten items being cooked (visiting relatives for holidays), and it took me 4 months to recover.

Note that I'm unusually sensitive to gluten, even airborne gluten, so your experience may be totally different than mine.

Celiac Disease is FOREVER hon - if you've been diagnosed with it - you'll have to live with it....

For me it was the BEST thing that ever happened - finally no more 'stomach' issues (thou I am also being treated for GERD)..... No more bouncing back and forth with diaherria and constipation and/or those horrible cramps etc., that plagued me ALL my life :-)...... Dr's thought (catch term) it was 'just IB'......

So hon, if YOU feel better on your diet then be consistant and careful and you'll feel better than you EVER had in your whole life <3.....
