I have been “glutened” how long does it take to heal my villi?


Good Morning All – First of all I am so glad to be a part of this group. I have learned a ton of great information since being added. I have read many posts from those who accidently injest gluten or eat something that has been cc. I feel for all of you that get sick. But there are those like me with silent celiac who don’t know when they have been “glutened”. My question is once I have been “glutened” how long does it take to heal my villi, if ever? I try to be super careful but without getting sick it sometimes is hard to tell. Thanks in advance!A

  1. It depends on the individual. And unless you have repeated blood tests and maybe even repeated biopsies there’s no actual way to know how much you’ve healed. I suggest being rigorous about not cheating and as careful as possible about CC and try to relax about it.

  2. I don’t have symptoms if I ingest gluten either so it hard to know If I’ve been cross contaminated.
    My last blood tests came back really good so I try not to worry too much.

  3. What was it that triggered you to figure out that you had celiac? Sometimes it’s a matter of timing of symptoms that are referred to as silent, but were enough to lead you down the path of a celiac diagnosis.
