Is it really that bad to get “glutened?”

Yes. Although each celiac patient has a different threshold of sensitivity, we know that as little as 10 mg of gluten in a day can cause the disease to become active. Repeated exposure is detrimental to those with celiac disease, so it is imperative to strictly avoid gluten.

How do I know how much gluten I can handle before reactivating the disease?

There have been many studies to assess this with different modalities and different populations of patients. The bottom line appears to be that every celiac can tolerate up to about 10 mg of gluten per day, while all celiacs would reactivate their inflammation by ingesting 100 mg or more of gluten per day.
