Excercise

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
