After being diagnosed with coeliac disease in March this year, I immediately eliminated gluten and have now been gf for 5 months. It's not been that easy, especially on a recent holiday when it was somewhat spoilt by the daily search for gf food (have learnt my lesson to go prepared and stay in an apartment rather than a hotel!), however, I've been managing okay and have stuck to it 100%. I don't really have many symptoms, so can't say I feel any better or different really, other than the bitter taste in my mouth which I had for months and is now much better, thank god.
However, what I am concerned about, and would like to ask others about, is that now I seem to have become sensitive to even the tiniest amount of gluten. Whereas in my previous 'gluten-full' life, I hardly had any symptoms, last Saturday I had a terrible reaction (chronic diarrhea, feeling sick, and later collapsed) after eating a gf pizza, and I have previously eaten the exact same pizza twice previously since being diagnosed with no problems whatsoever.
Is this normal?
Someone suggested that it's actually better to be exposed to tiny amounts of gluten to avoid becoming hypersensitive, although I know that goes against all the rules of having to stick to a 100% gf diet.
Thanks in advance for any feedback!
