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

    • I agree, it's very unlikely she doesn't have celiac disease.  Can you find a local celiac group to get a doctor recommendation from?  They might have the best idea of a local doctor who is familiar with celiac disease.  There is also a doctors sub-section of this forum which might help find one.  http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/forum/6-celiac-disease-doctors/
    • Hi I'm newly diagnosed with coeliacs only 5 days ago so I have had 4 days gluten free , I felt more energised pretty quick but today have gone back to that sluggish feeling lethargic, could this be a withdrawal effect also did anyone have swelling whilst on gluten ?
    • Thank you! I will call and ask for a full panel and see where it leads!!
    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
