Has Anyone Had Raynauds Syndrome Improve On Gluten Free Diet?

I recently found out that I have Raynauds.  Is it related to celiac?  Also does it improve with a gluten free diet?

I wondered about this as my Mum has Raynauds and although I've never seen a GP about it my circulation was really bad before I went gluten-free. Happy to say it's improved considerably :) hope yours does too!

Yes, Diana, I have Reynaud's and it has improved tremendously on the gluten-free diet.  My fingers used to blanch and turn white when exposed to the cold and now, I can tolerate the cold much, much better.  They do not turn white and numb nearly as much as they used to and it's only the very fingertips that are affected.  I can also reach into the freezer section and grab frozen items without gloves!   :)

 

Reduce the inflammation in your body, over time, and other AI diseases improve.

Hi Diana. I have had the same experience as Gemini, my Raynaud's has virtually disappeared since going gluten-free in 2010.

I think there is hope for me, for though I feel really good, I still feel I am in transition at 18 months gluten free.  One of my daughters has raynaud's  too, so the logical question is whether this might be a sign of celiac for my family.  I see everything as symptoms though, and my family sees nothing as symptoms.  Strange deal for a person with 2 copies of celiac genes!

I have mild Raynauds with my lupus.  It seems to be one of the things that improve when I just eat more healthy in general, but I did not notice a difference after going gluten-free.

hey doc, I was wondering recently, is Raynaud's centrally controlled? ie, breath in cold air, peripheral circ. shuts down?  maybe we should ask Dr H if he sees it in his ataxia patients??

yeah, actually! I didn't notice until now, but since going gluten free a year ago, I haven't had my fingers turn white once! which totally never happens, it used to happen like all the time
