Quite a long read at the link. I get very sick from gluten exposure. The initial reaction (minutes) is a gurgling in my lungs that initiates throat clearing, gagging and coughing. The hours to days follow-on changes to the inside surfaces of my GI tract is something akin to a skinned knee oozing serum with lots of bleeding. It feels like a "bore snake" was pulled end to end. That will heal and recover over the period of a week if I maintain a perfect GF diet. I also react to casein in milk. That closes down my throat and makes my nasal passages sting like a bee sting. Same general feeling down the whole GI tract. Food allergies are not fun. They require perpetual vigilance and a fairly limited choice of foods.
