Are Body Temperature Issues Related To Gluten Intolerance Or Celiac?

10 posts in this topic

I have problems at night with waking up really hot, and it is difficult to cool off. I'm fine when I go to sleep...I can't use lighter blankets, or I'll be too cold when I try to fall asleep. But I frequently wake up a few hours into the night feeling hot. It isn't night sweats, because I don't get sweaty. I just feel extremly warm.

Could this be a symptom related to gluten intolerance or celiac? Does anyone else have this problem, and how quickly did it go away when you went gluten-free?

I've been gluten-free for two weeks. I've noticed an improvement in "IBS" symptoms, but no other changes yet.

I actually thought I was pre-menopausal because of this. I used to wake-up during the night and have to change my bedclothes. They were soaking wet! I have not had that happen to me in over a year. I'm not sure if it is because of celiac but, I hope the same happens for you when you are gluten-free for a while.

I used to have night sweats, before gluten-free and for a while after, but they stopped a while back. I think they can be related to thyroid issues and possibly diabetes also. And fever of course.

I've been gluten-free for two weeks. I've noticed an improvement in "IBS" symptoms, but no other changes yet.

I had random fevers for over a year, especially at night, and didn't usually sweat either. Now, I get bad chills anytime. I've had several minor infections that may or may not have caused them. I never did actually take my temp, so i don't know if they were true fevers or not. When my symptoms get bad, i go from chills to the fever again. A point, I am gluten free for two months, but have no diagnosis but IBS, gastritis, and peripheral neuropathy. the fever part seemed to diminish after being gluten free (the first time) for about six weeks.

I have hot/cold issues as well. In doing more research and talking with my doc, he claims that mine is linked to my Hashimoto's Disease (Thyroid). Since, the thyroid actually is the regulator of body temp, if it doesn't work properly it can cause random cold or heat spells. Mine is usually cold, but I do get hot at random. I have ruled out menopause as I am only 30, so that wouldn't make a hole lota sense for me. :D

Good luck with it. Sucks, but hopefully over time when your body finds it's "happy" place it might adjust itself accordingly.

I struggle with night temperatures too. For me it's thyroid and Lyme but I bet as you heal your body will readjust.

When I got diagnosed with celiac my average body temp was 93! Yet, I would be hot after as little as 10 minutes n bed.

It's really frustrating, but give it some time. If it doesn't get better see your doctor.

I had to read this, as I have odd temperature issues in the last couple of years as well.

During the day, I am always too warm. I keep my house about 60 degrees and can finally wear a long-sleeved shirt, but in normal houses (70*) I need tank-tops.

However, at night I have to PILE on the blankets to the point that I can barely move, because otherwise I freeze. My alarm goes off in the morning, and I can lay there about 3 minutes before it's like someone turned on my thermostat and I have to kick off all of them. My normal body temperature is in the high 96* range, and is gradually getting lower every few months.

I never thought this could be related to celiac, and I have not yet gone gluten-free, so I can't tell you more. I have no confirmed diagnosis yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm heading down the gluten-free path.

I've also heard it could be because of the thyroid. If you decide to get checked, ask them to check the Free T4 and Free T3 instead of just a TSH. For me, my TSH was slightly elevated, but my T3 was really low and the T4 low as well.

Some doctors will only check your TSH level which doesn't show the whole picture.

i'm so glad i found this link. i'm struggling with my 3 kids who are gluten intolerant and i'm pretty darned sure they are temperature sensitive when it comes to sleeping well. when the weather gets warmer outside they sleep at 68... if they sleep at 69 degrees or even 70, all three wake up with the crankiest of all demeanors.... crying, whining, fighting (which they don't usually do if they sleep well). and at 70 they complain that it's too hot. it's very strange to me because both my husband and i sleep find with a range of temps including 70-72 with similar blankets.

does anyone recommend what to do? should i be going to get their thyroid levels checked? would it even help anything?

It might be a good idea to have their thyroid checked. I think soy is another possible cause of heat imbalances. My body was really wacky when I was eating soy.

    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.  
    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Let me tell you that based on what people post on this forum, it takes MUCH longer to heal.  In theory,  it should just take a few week on a gluten diet to promote villi healing.  Your body is constantly regenerating new cells in your gut on a daily basis.    Why the delay?   First,  it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet.  So, in the beginning, dietary mistakes are often made which can delay the healing time.  Second,  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten causing a "flare-up" which can be measured by the level of antibodies in your system.  Antibodies can take weeks, months or years to come down.   Third,  there's the type of damage done to your body to consider (e.g. bone damage, depleted iron levels).  Usually anything neuro takes much longer to heal. Has your doctor checked you for nutritional deficiencies?  If not, ask.  You might be really low on a vitamin or mineral.   You could be low on digestive enzymes (actually they can not be released in a damaged gut).  So even when eating gluten free foods, your body is not digesting and absorbing the necessary nutrients.  You could help the healing process by taking gluten free supplements and enzymes.   But it is best to see what you are actually deficient in.   Most of these deficiencies resolve with time. Finally, my parting words of wisdom (as passed on by many of our members), is patience.  I know.  Hard to be patient when you want to feel well, but it will happen.   Hang in there!  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Now if everyone out there who probably has a gluten problem adopted your attitude, they would be having a much better life.  After over 10 years gluten-free myself, who really cares about gluten pizza? I go months without gluten free pizza, which is very good by the way, and I am not an emotional wreck.  Imagine!  Glad you feel better and yes, it was the wheat!
    • Generic meds
      Your best bet is to contact the manufacturer (as Squirmingitch suggested).   My doctor has no time to worry about medication containing gluten.  My pharmacist admitted that she does not have the time to help me, but recommended that I take responsibility and always contact the manufacturer.  My pharmacist did help by insuring that my thyroid replacement medication (Armour) is ordered in a full bottle, sealed and direct from the manufacturer.  I have to give her credit for being honest with me.  I also see her running around non-stop, so I believe that she is super busy.   Why did your doctor switch your medication?  Can you go back to your old brand?  How is your thyroid?   This is a bit off topic, but I subscribe to the Bicycling magazine.  I found this article fascinating about the impacts of cycling, swimming or running on ADHD.   http://www.bicycling.com/culture/people/riding-my-ritalin-how-one-cyclist-gained-control-over-his-adhd I hope you figure it out!

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      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!
