I always was woken up in the middle of the night with leg cramps and having to go to the bathroom minimum every half hour. Now since I have been gluten-free for two weeks, I have not had leg cramps and I have maybe got up twice at the very most during the night to go to the bathroom.

I have always slept lightly waking up once a night, but this year, my sleep has become worse and worse. this coincides with my other symptoms increasing and I've just had positive blood results for celiac disease. I'm looking forward to after the biopsy, so I can go gluten-free - really hoping to have the sleep transformation that so many others here are experiencing. Will keep you posted!

Does anyone know if celiac disease may lead to a higher incidence of foot cramps at night?

I've only been diagnosed with celiac disease since July '05; however, my nutritionist told me that the foot cramps, "charley horses", if you will, were a result of calcium deficiency, possibly a result of the whole digestive "mess" that is Celiac Disease. She put me on 1500 mg of calcium per day, and the cramps are much less frequent. Ask your doctor or nutritionist about calcium. Couldn't hurt!!! By the way, she also told me to take B6, B Complex, magnesium, zinc, and I get monthly B12 shots. Lots of luck. Sybyl
