Red Wine

15 posts in this topic

I was diagnosed about 3-4 weeks ago and I have been gluten-free for that long. On Saturday night I had about 3 glasses of pure red wine throughout the evening. (Nothing was added to the wine, ie: no flavorings etc.) I have been having mild diarrhea, abdominal pain, fatigue and a general feeling of being unwell ever since. I know that there is no gluten in this kind of wine but I am feeling exactly like I have accidently eaten gluten. Has anyone experienced this or does anyone have idea why I am experiencing this?

Thanks.

Hi

This happen to me about 2 weeks ago, and until now I do not know what it was. It will be very intresting to see what others have to say. It would be a shame to remove yet another thing.

Thanks for your question, the answers will help me too.

Have a great day.

Red wine is safe for Celiacs although some here react to the sulfites in the wine.

Consider whether you might have sensitivities to egg or milk. Although red wines are gluten free, wine makers commonly use egg white to 'fine' or purify red wines and skim milk to 'fine' white wines. You can find some unrefined wines, but they are more expensive. Also alcohol exacerbates 'leaky gut' symptoms.

One more thing I forgot to mention in my original post: I have also been feeling like it is hard to get a full breath in; like I am short of breath, but without any wheezing whatsoever. Like, really easily out of breath when I walk across the room or get up from sitting. It doesn't feel like an allergy, I just feel really exhausted, like the exhaustion affects my breathing.

Anyone have any idea what that's all about?

One more question that may seem silly but might solve the mystery. Were you on a date with your significant other? If so what were they eating and drinking and did you do any kissing? We can get glutened from kissing someone who is eating or drinking gluten. May not be the case for you but figured I should throw it in.

About a week ago i drank 10-12 glasses of red wine at a wedding i dont remember being a part of. Since then i have been feeling like crap, and having trouble breathing. It feels like my intestine is swollen and keeping me from getting a good breath. I was vomitting the day after the wedding and i may have been glutened there. I think the trouble breathing is due to stomach/intestinal irritation, causing inflammation and making it hard to breath at times. As you heal, it will subside. Before i got diagnosed with celiac, i was having these same symptoms (trouble breathin,bloating,fatigue,etc), so i figure it just part of the many symptoms this disease manifests. Try not to worry about it. Youll be okay. Be patient,sometimes it takes time for these strange symptoms to subside.

Thanks so much! To be honest I am surprised someone had this happen to them as well... it seemed so random and unrelated to celiac so I wasn't convinced that it had anything to do with celiac. Last summer I had a lot of trouble breathing and even went to Emergency and they could find nothing wrong with me so they gave me a prescription for VALIUM. LOL.

I definitely didn't have 12 glasses of wine (wow!!) but it's still a relief to know that wine can cause problems if your gut is still healing. Thanks again for the advice.

HAHA, good question! Unfortunately I was NOT on a hot date... but that is good thinking, bringing up the possibility that it may have been something else DURING my red wine drinking that may have glutened me. I shall have to think about that. :D

I have found through much research in this subject (haha) that red wine causes the same reaction in me as gluten. I wish not as it spoils my fun! Red wine has health benefits so I still try it once in a while, but I have had to stick with a white wine. Which I faithfully do! I unfortunately feel, with my body, it's the sulfites or the alcohol, or something with the red is to blame. I will probably test this theory again soon. But mostly with white where I end up feeling OK. Unless it's more than 4 glasses of that, then back to the "glutening"! haha Sounds like this is no help but what I really feel is that alcohol mimics glutening in my body.

You have to do whatever works for you. But, if it makes you feel better, my husband with a combination of red wine and beef, will do his morning newspaper reading in the bathroom. And, he is non-Celiac. :rolleyes: And, he would be so proud that I mentioned this.

Gluten reaction can also be a delayed reaction. As an intolerance it can take as much as 3 days between injestion and tummy upset. If you are new to the diet be sure you look over the days before you got ill, not just that one. It is important that you try to eat much naturally gluten free food for the first couple months as possible. It will help you heal faster and when you add processed stuff back in it is easier to tell if CC is getting you, which is a high risk for many mainstream items.

My reaction to gluten is always 3 days- 72 hours- without fail. I don't know why it works like clockwork like that, but it has for years. I know the gluten works differently for all. My 72 hour reaction helps me retrace my steps to see what might have glutened me. Now the red wine- usually 10-12 hours later?

Here is an article about a current rulemaking considering requiring winemakers to list allergens on their labels.

http://www1.pressdemocrat.com/apps/pbcs.dl...1036/BUSINESS01

In addition to fining agents such as egg, casein or fish, wheat-based glues are sometimes used to seal wine barrels. Whether these things end up in the final products is controversial. From what I can tell, the industry says they don't show up. But then they say that there is no test for finding out if they are there or not.

If you have problems with a particular wine, you might want to avoid it. Some other wine might not bother you.

There are lists of vegan wines on the internet, if it is an animal-based fining agents that bothers you. When I have brought this issue up before, some have told me that they do sometimes react to these. All I know about the "wheat-based glue on the wine barrels" issue is that one sentence in the article.

When I first discovered my intolerance (doctors have been of no help) and after two weeks of been gluten free it seemed like I was reacting to everything, and I hard time sorting things out and still occasionally do.

I learned that I had more than one intolerance, and also some allergies. As you may know, IgA will involve an intolerance, while IgG will involve an allergy. I found page 11 of this guide to be helpful;

http://www.gdx.net/home/assessments/allerg...ReliefGuide.pdf

You may have a yeast intolerance, which would cause a similar reaction to a glutening. Because any IgA reaction will cause the same symptoms. Though I do not think I am a celiac (I do not have the primary HLA genes but I still am gluten intolerant and have all the same symptoms) I too had a major problem with the breathing/wheezing/fatique. The area where I made progress here was (half luckily) whacking everything out of my diet that I was reacting to and my sinusitus cleared up (mostly) by surprise, Whenever I "reacted" to something my sinusitus would come back in a major way followed by fatigue. I take a store brand Claritine (antihistimine) that is cornstarch free and that would help some when I had what seemed to be an IgG reaction. I have cut all grains out of my diet. I'm glad that I did because I do think that I'm corn intolerant, and am working with a modified paleolithic (cave man) diet.

Because of this "normal breathing" I was able to sleep with much less snoring and get a more restful sleep. But it is five months out from being gluten-free and I still struggle with fatigue. I increased (and do check with a doctor on this) my sodium intake. It seemed that vitamin C helped a little too (I could just be vitamin deficient). But when the vitamin C (I was taking magnesium supplements as well) started to cause (more) Diarrhea I discontinued the vitamin C. When I feel like I'm really dragging I occasionally (and I do mean occasionally) take a glass of warm water with 1/4 of teaspoon of salt.. I think that orthostatic hypotension was affecting me. I do not know if the food alergies caused it or the other way around. But if you read that link you will instantly know more than 90% of doctors in practice. Here's another link;

http://www.pediatricnetwork.org/medical/OI/johnshopkins.htm

It is very important to not self diagnose. But I can't help but think of all the misdiagnosis that are happening in this area. These things are completely off the map in most doctor's offices. It's astounding really. The medical profession up to this point has let me down. I continue to search for answers.

    • Weird Reaction
      Hi Richard Glad you are feeling better!   Sorry - DX is an abbreviation for diagnosis.   Thanks so much  for the info about MSG, broccoli and IBS.  Like you say, there is v. little bad press about broccoli. My aunt, who is a farmer's wife, put forward another theory that it might not have been the broccoli itself but rather some insecticide a farmer sprayed on it.   I just can't bring myself to try organic broccoli however...  Thankfully cauliflower is fine.  I just can't figure it out as I thought they were the in the same vegetable family?  So maybe it is MSG. Regarding anemia, there can be a link with iron anemia and anxiety. http://www.livestrong.com/article/471225-iron-anxiety/ And I was definitely breathless before my diagnosis; I remember finding myself  walking up a hill behind a  huge crowd of friends on a church walk, and many of them were at least 20 years older than me, and wondering why I was in last place! My B12 levels were very low at DX and I found B12 supplements helped enormously with anxiety.   I remember drinking Berroca and feeling so much better within hours of drinking it, on more than one occasion, before even understanding the link. I have just been told however that I can't take any more iron because my hemoglobin is on the high side - so it is worth getting your levels monitored if you wish to supplement as one can have too much of a good thing - to much iron is dangerous. I hope you continue to feel well.

      Thank  you Flowerqueen and Cristiana for your replies. I'm actually feeling much better today. I got my appetite back yesterday lunchtime (a few hours after I typed the original post) and managed to keep in/hold down some chicken and lettuce!!! I also had a "fat" coffee (as I call it) before work with MCT Oil and butter (your probably going "yuk" right now but it's really nice...really haha) and started feeling a bit better after that. The nausea went away almost immediately after that although just the thought of having all that fat nearly made me sick but I just wanted to get back to normal asap. I usually have a lot of fat in my diet anyway which is normal for me so the coffee choice isn't unusual. Plus it was also the third day which was when I started feeling better after the first time. I didn't eat til lunchtime and I was good and hungry by then so I knew I was coming out of it. That nausea and trembling feeling is something I don't want ever again. I think after the workout and tearing down muscle tissue (which is a form of stress) and then not being able to hold the nutrients in for repair affected my nervous system. My theory only but to me it makes sense. Although Vitargo also comes in flavors I always get the Natural / Unflavored one so the barley is the only ingredient. As for there being something wrong with that particular batch, well, you be on to something there. Also I'm not knocking the product because as I said, I have used it before and it did exactly what it was supposed to do. But, I will never have it again. Cristiana, my last blood test revealed I had slight anaemia which really surprised me with the amount of red meat I've eaten during my life and the anxiety thing is also new as I'm usually a happy, positive person. Life is good but after this recent reaction I think it is an indirect cause of the glutening. I'm also surprised at how sensitive I've become to it and how quickly. Also what is DX? I also follow a FODMAP eating plan (I can give you more info if you haven't heard of it) which also eliminates certain foods. It's a plan directed mostly at IBS but is well worth looking into if you are suffering any gut health, digestion issues or any ailment you may have which you can't get to the bottom of. Broccoli was one of the foods which I have cut back on and I've eaten HUGE amounts of broccoli so it is a superfood for some but apparently not for others. (I even think I read somewhere it has MSG naturally in it) It's hard to find any bad articles on broccoli so this also really surprised me. It also answered a few other questions I had. Many, many thanks again to you both for your replies. It actually settled me just reading them. I'm glad I found these forums so I don't think i'll be a stranger around here for long.   Richard

      Okay, I get that you are not going to follow the advice from some stranger on the internet, but please read the links that I gave you.  Your doctor is not following the standard level of care.  I am dead serious.  I have Kaiser.  My own GP doesn't have a clue about celiac disease, but my Kaiser GI does.  Please, I urge you to get properly diagnosed.  All celiac testing requires you to be on a gluten diet.  If you go gluten free even for two weeks (it will take time to get the referral and appointment), it will mess up the tests.  Your GI will put you back on a gluten diet (called a gluten challenge) for 8 to 12 weeks.    Chances are (almost 100%) you will feel more miserable!  That will just delay your diagnosis.   Symptoms not bad you say?  I had pretty severe anemia, but no tummy issues.  Two months after my diagnosis, I fractured my back DOING NOTHING!  Yep, I have osteoporosis from undiagnosed celiac disease and I am an athlete!   Please take this seriously!    
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      Oh, you might learn how to tell if you had been glutened.  I just had anemia as my main symptom.  I did not have any tummy issues at all.  I was in shock when my doctor even suggested testing me for celiac disease!   Glutenings can vary as we are all different.  For some it is just a few days, others a few weeks and others months (that would be me).  My last official glutening as supported by follow-up antibody testing lasted for three months.  Guess what?  I had vomiting, abdominal pain, the works!  Funny how celiac disease can change and evolve over time.   Welcome to the forum!  Have some patience and learn all that you can.  The good news is that you can feel better and no medications are required!  
    • Confused
      Thank you for the information. I've been not sure if I should eat gluten or not right now. Dr. said I should watch what I eat when I emailed him the question. My symptoms aren't very bad (I understand that doesn't matter for celiac disease), so I can definitley tolerate the food. But I have been starving myself the last few days due to not knowing what the heck is going on. Thanks again.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
