    Why do I not react to certain foods with gluten in it


    I posted this in another part of the board which I think was the wrong area. Here is what I posted.

    I have been diagnosed with Celiac disease for a couple years now and I react strongly to some food but not as much to others. If I eat cake, more then one cookie, english muffin and especially beer I react pretty strongly. Bad stomach problems, gas, although not being able to release it, bloating and just plain feeling agonizingly sick to my stomach. Then on the other hand I can eat chicken nuggets, hamburgers with buns, sandwiches with white bread and I don't seem to react. If on occasion I do it's very minor. If I go crazy eating it these things every day then I will certainly begin reacting of course.

    Is it a matter of some foods begin more concentrated with gluten or what is it. How is it that I can eat a McDonalds hamburger with a bun and feel fine but I get sick to my stomach when eating an english muffin? I'm confused?

    Hi Don,

    Welcome to the boards.

    I really don't know! On the one hand, I would say your lucky. Except that I know that even if you don't react, that doesn't mean it's not causing damage to your intestines.

    Some people go for years not knowing they have Celiac, because they don't have many symptoms.

    Hopefully someone else will have a theory to help you!
