I just wanted to ask if any of you have had any problems with excessive sweating / persiration or hyperhidrosis.

If so, did it clear up after reducing / eliminating gluten products?

Just trying to worj out if they might be linked.

Thanks for your time

I can tell you that I had awful nightsweats before I went gluten-free and that I haven't had them in the last gluten-free six months. I haven't ever seen anything about them on a symptoms list, but as I read more and more on these message boards it seems lots of weird symtpoms are related in some way to celiac disease. It could be that your body just gets so haywire from the disease that anything is possible!

I always had excessive night sweats but I thought it was caused by my dog who insists on laying on me every night. Hmmmm, wonder if it is celiac related?

I actually have the opposite problem, and tend not to sweat enough. (Which can be problematic on it's own when you overheat!) But I imagine that if there is any nerve damage that's occured, it could be related, though I don't really know.

I have had excessive sweating during sleep. It went away with a gluten-free diet but comes back if I accidently get some glutton.

For me now, waking up with soaking sheets is an automatic indicator. It means I took in some gluton somewhere (start back-tracking and figure out where) did not sleep well, will be tired most of the day, will be fatigued, and that I'm probably depressed already and will get worse as the day goes on.

I don't know the reason for the night sweating. If I'm careful with the diet, it's not an issue.
