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

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
