Gluten-How long does Gluten stay in the body…

“The half life for gluten antibodies is typically 3-4 months. Thus is would take at least that long for gluten to be purged from the system. This also depends on other factors, such as:

1. The health of the individual – for example, if a person has gluten induced liver or kidney disease (a common manifestation of gluten induced damage) the purging process would most likely take longer.

2. The presence of trace gluten in the diet. Even small amounts can perpetuate the production of gluten antibodies and inflammation.

3. Dehydration – many people are chronically dehydrated. Reduced water volume will lead to reduced detoxification capabilities and reduced gluten clearance time.

4. Constipation – reduces gut transit time. The bowels should move 1-2 times per day. Gluten commonly causes gastroparesis and constipation. To effectively remove gluten from the body, one needs to promote a healthy bowel movement. Increasing fresh fruit and vegetable is the most effective way to do this.”
