Heat Problems
0

21 posts in this topic

I don't know where this really belongs so sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

I have had celiac for about 7 years now (judging from when I started having the symtoms that lead me to the diagnosis ) and one of my most annoying problems is that I am very sensitive to heat and sweat very easily. I am currently gluten free, but still have the problem. Granted I'm not healed... but I still find heat gives me D. Exercise causes it also, and even riding in a car on a bumpy road.

Did this happen to anyone else?

Have it improved when you heal?

Any ideas how to help with this?

I feel so much better and I can go places now, but still worried about overheating and getting sick.

Dear SunnyDyRain,

I am very sensitive to heat, as well. If your Thyroid is overactive, that intensifies it. I have that trouble. I always have been sweaty. It is awful! The heat tends to cause D in a lot of people. It does that to me and my brother.

Sincerely,

Thanks! I feel a little more normal now! Tuesday I was going over and over in my head what I could have eaten. I was very careful that day... all stuff proven to be good, no dairy, no processed foods. It all started when I was cooking dinner and it was 85 outside. Only thing I could think of was heat, and then I thought about last summer and how when I'm at the gym and working out I have problems!!

though, my Thyroid is underactive...but not out of normal.. low side of normal. But I sweat like no tomorrow...

Can't I just be normal sometime?

I noticed your sig line and it recalled a conversation I had with my Mom where she blithly dismissed something with the comment "Life gives you lemons and you just have to make lemonade."

I told her "Yes, but sometimes life gives you cow pies instead and the best you can do is make is a poo-pet."

for those that don't know what poo pets are

Dear SunnyDyRain,

Yep, it is not just you! It is a relief to know, isn't it? :lol: A lot of people probably wonder about this. Working out can making you hot and irritate your system. I have a theory. Maybe because you have a thyroid that is on the low side of normal, your body temp is lower, too. Heat may feel more so than it actually is because your body temp is lower than normal. It could have a bad effect on your body. I sweat a lot, and it can be quite embarrassing. I can actually be talking on the phone, and sweat will be dripping down my arm and hand! I could have Lyme and Babesia as well as a mountain of other issues, though.

Dear KarenB,

Poo Pets are something I have never heard of! :lol: I found that quite amusing! That reminds me of something my mother told me about. She used to have a friend who sold Tird Birds. Do you know what those are? They are a petrified cow patty with two feathers stuck in it! :lol: Why the heck would anyone want one of those anyway?

Wonder if that would explain also why I get cold quickly? I have found I have a very slim "comfort zone" when it comes to temp. Anything below 70ish, i need a sweatshirt, anything above 80, i need a tank top and fan. I love practicing yoga, but once i get warmed up I start dripping all over the mat from the sweat. Then my belly starts making the gurgling sounds.... At that point I have to stop stressing myself and just do basic modified moves.

I should talk to my doctor about my thyroid again when I go in, now I'm gluten-free/CF I might see some changes in my tests. I see her end of june, that would be 3 monthes gluten-free one month CF. She gave me synthroid to see if it helped with energy, and it did nothing so she took me off. Now energy is pretty good with the gluten-free diet. Thankfully my GP is into helping me without drugs before she throws drugs at me.

One more question... you told me to make sure I have iodized salt. I try to limit my salt (borderline HBP- being treated with bananas,onions, and potassium supps! ) how much does a person need to fill iodine requirements for thyroid?

Dear SunnyDyRain,

That is exactly why you get cold quickly! I have had the same trouble. People think I am weird wearing sweats in the summer. I have the exact same temperature range I can tolerate too! You know, the best exercise for me is walking. I do not have a lot of energy, so it is easier on me. I also do not get overheated. Yoga is a good thing for stress relief. When you are able to do the moves, it is good to do them.

I see my doc again in early June. Synthyroid did not do a lot for me, either. Weight-wise it did nothing. The side effects were less than pleasant, as I mentioned before. My doc is good about not shoving pills at me. That is why I stopped seeing the last PCP I went to. Drugs are being overused by doctors for the most part.

Normally, you need one teaspoon of iodized or sea salt daily. There are iodine pills made from seaweed, too. GNC carries them. I do not know if they are gluten-free, though. Iodine can be derived from various sources.

Now things are making sense! Walking has been a little problematic for me, I get cramps in my legs. I like to use the Eliptial at they gym I go to, that is better for legs, but I do overhead. I love yoga the best, but occasionally do pilates as well. I feel alot better when I workout, but motivation is hard to come by.

Dear SunnyDyRain,

The thing is when you walk, make sure it is on flat ground and not back and forth. Your legs will start hurting. I am alright if I walk around outside where I am not constantly going back and forth. I was walking in front of the television. I had to stop because it hurt my lower back and legs. I do better outside where I am actually going somewhere! If you can walk in the grass, that is better. Concrete is hard on your joints. I used to do Pilates, and it was great! I need to start doing it again. My Fibromyalgia did not bother me as much when I did them. Plus, I lost six inches off of my hips! I am pear-shaped, so this was really something! I have always been into fitness, but a lot of the things I did before did not do the job. It also helped with the bloating in my lower abdomen!

Sincerely,

Sounds like me. I am hypothyroid and am cold below 70 and hot above 80. You need to get your thyroid peroxidase antibodies checked to see if you may have Hashimotos Hypo - its common in celiac and autoimmune. That is what I have. Synthroid is useless. You need to take Armour thyroid or Cytomel. Read up on some of the thyroid threads here and read Georgies info. Check out dr.lowe.com. They are my doctors and have tons of great info.

I know my dr does a thyroid panel with t3 and t4? every 6mo. She keeps a close eye becasue my mom has thyroid problems and according to 2 different doctors now, me and my mom are ideantical when it comes to blood work. (Seriously the Rhumatologist looked at both our charts and said we could have been the same person tested on 2 diffrent days). I will look into more tests, but still kind of wary about drugs right now, will see how I get once I try the herbs.

I know I have to do some weight loss somehow, now that i'm gluten-free i'm gaining weight, and i was in no way skinny before! I think my thyroid may be making it hard.

:blink: This sweating, and cold issue I have also, course I blamed it all on my fibromyalgia, but now after reading this thread sounds like it could be from being a celiac, all I know is, between the 2 of these problems, I am a mess :(

Dear SunnyDyRain,

Your Thyroid is almost certainly the cause of your difficulty with weight. When your Thyroid is slow, it can make losing weight impossible! Mine was sluggish a while back, and no matter how few calories I ate, and no matter how much exercise I did, nothing came off! In fact, I could gain weight despite efforts to lose weight! I remember reading an article on Thyroid problems, and one woman had been on a 300 calorie liquid diet due to gallbladder removal, and still could not lose weight! That is how bad a slow Thyroid can be for your metabolism.

Dear annaleeb,

I think your Thyroid could be hyper. You may want to get that checked. It causes excessive sweating, heat sensitivity, heart palpitations, dizziness, nervousness, fatigue, and sometimes makes you have more frequent bowel movements. Thyroid disease is common for Celiacs to have. Most doctors just run a blood test. I had developed a knot on my neck, and had a scan. It turns out, it was just swollen Thyroid tissue! Even so, it is uncomfortable feeling like you have a golfball on the side of your neck! :lol:

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

You can take Armour which is natural thryoid from pigs - I know sounds gross, but works. Low side of normal basically coupled with your symptoms means hypothyoid. Also your doc may be using old reference ranges as well. Read up at drlowe.com.

My 10 year old daughter also had problems not being able to handle the heat. At school the coach makes them play baseball out in the sun and my daughter just can not handle it some days. She has played soccer for 3 seasons and quit this year because of the heat. I wondered if it was from the Celiac. She takes water and gaitoraide with her to P.E. Just wondered if this is something related to being on a gluten-free diet?

I would supplement with kelp for iodine. It's a harmless source. Iodized salt, even if it's sea salt, is highly processed and bad for you. For salt, you should use one that's more natural ... like "Real Salt" or Himalayan Salt. These salts are balanced in minerals just as your body is and shouldn't affect your blood pressure (though check on it, I'm not a doctor, just a stranger on the internet ;)).

You need salt. It's just most of us get too much salt if we eat junk food, and it's the bad, processed kind at that. If you're eating healthy, whole foods and no salt, you may not be getting enough. My sodium always tests at borderline low and I use salt on everything! I just don't use bad salt and I don't eat junk food.

To help in the sun, you might try putting 1/4 tsp. salt in a quart of water. It will be more of an electrolyte solution, like Gatorade without the sugar.

I have long been sensitive to heat, as well as you, but I am virtually unable to sweat. I get stinky underarms, but rarely any wetness from sweat anywhere -- even in a sauna, which is why I can't take saunas, because I overheat and feel like I'm going to pass out.

I would say I've gotten better with heat, but less tolerant of cold. Anyway -- I would also watch WHAT you're eating. Foods have heating and cooling properties, and if you eat cooling foods when you're hot, that should help.

You might quickly check out ayurveda. It's medicine from India that is thousands of years old, and they have a lot to say about heating and cooling. They also have a lot to say about what types of exercises are good for folks. I am only supposed to do walking, swimming, yoga, pilates - that type of thing - nothing overly stimulating.

I wish I could help -- I get nauseus when I get too hot...and walking makes me have to poop, too, but I do it a lot anyway. Since I've always been on the C side, it's usually not an emergency.

I ditto on the salt thing, especially if you're sweating a lot - you need good salt, like Himalayan crystal salt. Yum.

Good luck.

Dear Bully4You,

I have explored Indian Ayurvedic medicine as well. It is very interesting. I think it could be very helpful. When you eat right, your body responds. I have Thyroid issues, so the heat certainly affects me in a bad way a lot of the time.

Dear Carla,

That is interesting about the salt being okay for people with BP problems. Maybe my mother should use it, too when I get some. I think that is a good idea. She is not big on salt, but what she eats has a lot of unhealthy processed salt. This can be a really big problem with her health issues.

Jin, I would definately read up on it on your own, but from what I've read the "low salt" experiment for blood pressure has shown little in the way of results. I do think that common table salt can be a major source of health problems.

Wars used to be fought over salt! It's VERY important to our health ... it's a MACRO-nutrient... and a balanced salt has a similar mineral balance to that in your body. If you get an IV for hydration at the hospital, it's a saline (salt) solution.

I think the other two misunderstood things are fats and sunshine.

Most get too much fat, but of the wrong kind, so they're still deficient in essential fatty acids.

Sunshine is important for the immune system to function. Could this be why some of us feel bad in the sun? Is it a Herxheimer type reaction? I don't know ... but I know that when we slather on #50 sunscreen immediately upon going outside, we're not getting the vitamin D that we need so badly.

Dear Carla,

I am going to check the salt out. I agree that there is more causing high BP than salt intake. I also believe as you do, that it is not what we eat, but what kind of fats, carbs, salt, and proteins we consume. Our bodies know what is good for it, and what is not. I think it is better for us to be natural when possible. If I had the money, I would be buying organic everything!

I found it interesting you mentioned macronutrients. I am a fan of The Zone, and am planning to go back on it. Dr. Sears talks about how the kinds of fats, proteins and carbs are important. There are these hormones called Eicosonoids. They control illness. The diet balances them, helping prevent heart disease, equal out blood sugar, and so much more! It helps with brain chemistry problems as well, such as serotonin levels.

The reaction to the sun could be a herx. I would not be surprised. I do alright if I do not get too hot. I do tolerate it better than I used to. Vitamin D certainly cannot be absorbed unless you are not wearing sunblock. I have not been wearing it. I should, but since going gluten-free, have not found one I could use.

Sincerely,

Jin

    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much!
