Excercise
0

7 posts in this topic

Hey all,

Has anyone noticed excercise affecting their reactions to gluten?

I just started doing yoga and have now developed a rash all over -- back, legs, hands, stomach, arms. Before realizing I had celiac I did get occaisonal rashes on my stomach and itchy spots on my head, but nothing this bad.

It comes and goes but seems worse the day after yoga.

I started bringing my own soap to the studio, etc so I don't think that's the problem.

Thanks!

I have not had that reaction - certainly not when doing yoga, though I haven't been swimming in a few months. Did you clean your mat after buying it? Are you on a carpet that may be harboring an allergen, or on a hardwood floor that might have been cleaned with an irritating chemical? Is the rash primarily where clothing touches the skin, so perhaps perspiration is contributing to the problem?

Just some initial thoughts...

Hi. I'm a road cyclist and I've noticed sometimes that I will develop a rash all over my body or sometimes just my arms, or stomach. It is a red rash but doesn't last long. Usually not more than half an hour. It has only happened after I exercise but doesn't happen all that often. I've always wondered what would be causing it. Does this sound anything like yours at all?

Haven't had that one either, but before I knew what was wrong with me, I was to the point that excercise made me sick everytime. Other than the lack of nutrition factor which would cause all sorts of problems in working out, I had a theory that toxin build up was being released too quickly. That is how it felt to me, it could be the case with you, toxins will come out your pores if released quickly. But I agree that it also could be caused by something your touching, mat or floor, possibly containing something scented that your not used to? Or some floor cleaning chemical? Hope you get it figuared out and easy does it if your not up to full strength would be my approach.

That's really bizarre, I found that I got alot better after doing yoga. Of course I did it at home without a mat so I was sure that I wasn't coming into contact with anything. What kind of soap do you use? Maybe it's not related to yoga at all but you just notice it after yoga? Just a thought.

Hey guys, I know this is comming a little late, but I bet it has to do with some kind of soap or detergent you are using, and that the perspiration makes it irritate your skin. Remember that there is still some contraversy about whether or not soaps that contain gluten actually do cause reactions or not, but if you are hypersensitive, that may be something to look into.

I have the same reactions after I teach my karate classes. It seems to concentrate on my chest.

However, I believe that we more than the average person need to exercise and keep in shape. As hard as it may seem, we need to work around the gluten "accidents".

Just my opinion,

Disturbed

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
