If you’re living gluten free, you likely know all too well what it feels like when gluten makes it’s way into your diet. In the celiac world, this is called “getting glutened” – it’s also known as gluten poisoning. Doesn’t sound too pleasant, does it? Well, it is not. Those who have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease or have otherwise cut gluten out of their diets may not be quite as familiar with symptoms of accidentally ingesting gluten. This post will give you an idea.
What Does It Feel Like to Get Glutened?
If you have Celiac’s disease or are gluten sensitive, you may experience a wide range of symptoms after eating food with gluten in it. These symptoms can include:
- Stomach pain
- Skin Rash
If you’ve rarely had these symptoms after eating in the past, and this is your first time asking, “what does it feel like to get glutened?” you’re likely not affected by Celiac’s or gluten sensitivity. If you are, however, your comfort and overall health depends upon your ability to stay away from foods with gluten.

How to Prevent Gluten Attacks
Preventing the effects of gluten on your body is done simply by avoiding gluten in your diet, but that doesn’t make it easy. Gluten is everywhere, and avoiding delicious foods like pizza, breads, and other items with wheat, barley, and oats can seem difficult. Even products that don’t seem like they should have gluten sometimes do because of heavy processing.
Preventing attacks means getting good at reading labels and recognizing which foods are safe to eat. Your diet should consist of:
- Fruits and vegetables
- Beans and legumes
- Dairy products
- Lean beef, fish, and chicken
- Corn and potatoes
