One post mentioned a previous post about mold, but I couldn't find it. I wanted to mention, though that peanuts are high in mold content. I'm slightly allergic to mold and have to watch both how much peanut butter I eat and fruit juice. They don't use all the pretty fruit for juice.

I only have night sweats related to glutenings.

OK- This is REALLY weird. I sat down with my food journal last night and casually went through it and it looks like peanut butter might be the culprit???? I need to do a more methodical chart or something but how weird is that??

Peanut butter :lol::lol:

Well it's something to start with anyway. It's so good too. Wouldn't that be something if eliminating peanut butter makes a difference for you?!?!

I had read something very interesting some time ago about peanuts and their high mold content and that people who have severe allergies to peanuts (the ones who can die if they eat peanuts) are actually reacting to the mold than the peanut itself. It apperently is a very very toxic mold.

But you can just about read anything about everything anymore, who knows if it's true.

Patti- You are BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!! I didn't realize they were both legumes. It explains a lot. Yesterday I aate a Bumble Bar and felt funky after. Now, it has no soy or gluten, but it does have PEANUTS! I sweat like mad last night- I even soaked my husband's side of the bed. And today my gas is exceptionally smelly and my joints ache! I bet that's what it is. I'm going to do some research and post in the Related Disorders section to see what people know. Thank you, thank you thank you!

Regarding the mold- I have far less night sweats when I sleep somewhere other than our apartment so we think there's a mold connection so maybe I am reacting to the mold in peanuts. It would be nice if I didn't have to cut out ALL legumes because I like beans, chickpeas, etc.

Bev--I'm glad that the legume thing struck a chord--the legumes are what took me the longest to figure out! I love peanut butter, and was bound and determined not to give that up, too! But on the days I ate it, I would get the bad gas :ph34r: and the sweatiness. The gas was so bad, I literally was afraid to be around anyone--seriously! Add to that, I was also eating green beans *every darn day* on my salad :angry: ! (I didn't realize they WERE legumes until I checked to make sure) When I finally cut out the legumes, it was like the "last piece of the puzzle" for me. I hope it will be for you, too! :)

I also want to add that I just turned 50, and had my hormone levels checked last month. I am right on the border (according to my Gyn) of where it would indicate menopause. I don't get night sweats anymore--and I used to get them often, and had since my 30's. At that time, I used to eat a ton of beans--for a while back then, I toyed with vegitarianism and ate beans and rice, chick peas, etc, often. Interesting how all this stuff fits together.

Patti- You rock! I just went back over my food journal with a fine tooth comb and it's peanuts for sure. And soy. I don't eat a lot of chickpeas and lately, I just haven't been craving hummus as much as I used to (strange, eh?). The last time I ate chili I felt really sick and I thought it was because I didn't cook the beans well enough. but now I wonder.

I don't eat green beans a lot but I LOVE them. Oh well.... nothing is worth soaking a bed (well maybe an occasional peanut butter indlgence here and there :ph34r: ).

What are other legumes so I know what else to avoid? Have you tried any other nut butters? THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

Legumes are all the beans, soy, kidney, black, pinto, etc. and peas, and then green beans (thanks to jersey, I didn't know this either), lentils, peanuts, that's all I can think of.

Probably includes wax beans too.

Almond butter is great, I am not doing so well with nuts for the time being so I avoid it, but I love it. I've also tried cashew butter and I like it as well.

Bev--Julie listed the legumes--and yes, wax beans are legumes. :( Chick peas and split peas, also. :angry: As far as nuts, I can do almonds--but right now, almond butter is too concentrated for me. I stick to the smaller amount in say, a Lara Bar or a few plain almonds. I don't want to rock the boat!! :D But I do miss nut butter with apple slices...

I began having night sweats at the same time that I developed gastrointestinal symptoms of Celiac a month ago. Sweating is a way the body gets rid of toxins, so perhaps this is a good thing, though annoying. I often need to change my undershirt once a night, but the sheets stay mostly dry, so I don't have them as bad as some here have reported.

As a side note, I was a celia baby starting at age 11 months. I was put on a carb-free diet for two years and then gradually reintroduced to normal foods. For my entire life I ate everything. Aside form some bloating when I ate a lot of hard pretzels, I never had any GI symptoms. At age 56 I began having all the symptoms again. This followed a series of very stressful events over the past two years.

Very interesting...I've been attributing my night sweats to perimenopause...sure would be nice if they'd improve after going gluten-free!

Please see your gyno, I started perimenopause at about your age and by 41 my periods had stopped. I was told it (the peri) was 'in my head', just like my IBS, fibromyalgia and incontinence. Everything has resolved in the 2 years since diagnosis and my gyno told me he sees signs my periods may start again. (at 48!) Stay gluten-free and talk to your doctor.

I am blown away by what you wrote. I sometimes have night sweats, though not often. I am having serious itching down there, but embarrassingly have had all VD tests recently, even though I and my husband have been monogamaus for 7 1/2 years, and have had 2 kids (4 & 1 1/2). All cultures come back normal: I know I am not my "norm". I don't get it.

Never used to get night sweats until a couple years ago, when I started getting them a few days before my period would start. Then got them when I was pregnant, and the regular postpartum sweats...only thing is, my baby is 4 months old now, and it hadn't gone away. I haven't had night sweats since I went gluten free though!

After I went down with Celiac in 2005 (but was misdiagnosed as Crohn's) I had night sweats really, really bad. Five t-shirts a night and a couple of towels was the norm. After I went gluten free in 2009 the night sweats tapered off and now they are rare. Instead I have really, really bad insomnia, up 4 - 6 times a night. Will be visiting the insomnia thread soon.

I have night sweats too. Not severe, but enough to wake me up and toss off the blankets.

If you have been tested for yeast infection and STDs and are ok..apply coconut oil topically. It stops the burn and itch immediately.

It contains caprylic acid which knocks out those itchies.

I took some of the coconut oil that I use for cooking and put it in a small container which I keep in the bathroom to apply as needed. Makes a good lubricant too. ;)

I had it really bad for a few months after starting to go gluten free! I'm 21 and was 20 at the time so it's obviously not menopause, and while it's not as bad anymore more I still think I'm having some. The AC in my apartment can be really funky sometimes so it may be that but I'll keep my AC below 70 degrees at night and I'm too skinny so I'm almost always cold. I'll falls asleep covered in blankets, wake up drenched freezing and burning up at the same time, and then wake up again usually right before I have to get up once again freezing. I think now it's a combo of my body and my AC hating me at the same time, but I'm moving soon and I'll have a roommate to help me figure out if its me or our house!

This is the number two difference I notice with my daughter when she gets gluten. Sleeps way more than usual (12 plus hrs) and sweats when she naps or sleeps.

I am one of those people who always want to know WHY things happen. I have been getting night sweats when glutened. Does anyone know why we get this?

No. never had night sweats in 30 years of GFD. Night sweats is listed as a GABA deficiency physical symptom. It is a brain chemical (gamma-aminobutyric acid) which controls anxiety/panic. Also, nervious stomach, IBS, muscle tension/aches,headache, dry mouth, diarrhea, etc(42 in all).

I have sleep apnea but quit using cpap/full mask treatment. never could get use to sleeping with it. The worst two months ever. Poor sleep, It wasn't for me.

I started (Dec.17,2012 on my own) taking GABA, 750mg, 2x/day and I fall asleep faster, Feel less tense during the day, less headache (also a symptom of celiac disease), With my headache came sever eye pain w/tearing & burning. I don't believe it's allergies. I could not read, use computer or think well. The eye pain has now diminished and I function better during the day. Headeache remains but less pain.

GABA is an OTC supplement. Found mainly in the brain(also in the gut's enteric nervous system) and eyes. Suggested use; 1-3/day. "Best taken without protein." To date, I don't why? I wait 30 minutes before eating. Probably some absorption issue. Have no side effects.

Try it, might help you.

    • How the gluten-free diet can cause new heartburn / GERD: sodium acid pyrophosphate
      I never really had much heartburn before my diagnosis of Celiac and consequent dietary changes. But since then, I have discovered Udis, Van's, Canyon Bakehouse, and many other gluten-free brands. About a year ago I began eating 2 waffles every day, 7 days a week with my breakfast. The waffles I was eating were Nature's Path and Van's, both which use very high amounts of sodium acid pyrophosphate. The waffles are mostly air and carbs. Within a few weeks I began to develop recurrent, very painful heartburn that would popup constantly. My tolerance for acidic foods declined--whereas previously it would take much more acidic foods to cause heartburn, now any amount, no matter how small, would cause heartburn. And it kept getting worse with each month to the point that I began to worry about my health. I developed GERD that wouldn't go away for 24 hours after eating an offending food. The offending foods list kept growing bigger and bigger to the point that almost anything would cause heartburn and some degree of GERD. So I eliminated almost all foods containing sodium acid pyrophosphate and the heartburn and GERD stopped. I can eat tomato-based foods again with either no discomfort or 5% of the discomfort I used to experience, and I can eat foods on the offending food list again with no heartburn at all. Despite searching the internet for hours for an answer to what was causing my heartburn and GERD, I found nothing definitive and had to figure it out on my own. Did you know there is absolutely nothing at all anywhere on the internet connecting sodium acid pyrophosphate with hearburn? To my knowledge this will be the first ever post on the topic on the entire internet. Either that, or both Google and DuckDuckGo are suppressing the information. Also, did you know that sodium acid pyrophosphate is an ingredient found in almost all aluminum-free baking powder? That's what I get for trying to eliminate aluminum! I am making the switch to single-action aluminum-free baking powder soon--single-action doesn't have this ingredient, but it's less convenient to use unfortunately. I'm interested to hear if it causes anyone else heartburn as well. I'm glad to be heartburn-free and comfortable for the first time in a year.
    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Leaky gut is a condition that we have little knowledge of.  The symptoms this condition could cause are not agreed upon. Some health practitioners say it could cause "wide range of long term conditions [1], like chronic fatigue syndrome and Multiple Sclerosis. The possible cause list NHS gives is much more accurate: inflammatory bowel diseases – such as Crohn's disease infections of the intestines – such as salmonella, norovirus andgiardiasis  coeliac disease  chemotherapy medicines chronic kidney disease   radiotherapy to the abdomen (tummy) immunosuppressants (medicines that weaken the immune system) HIV/AIDS  cystic fibrosis   type 1 diabetes sepsis complicated surgery As you can see, the list includes a lot gastrointestinal conditions. Gut becomes "leaky", letting too big particles into blood system, and possibly these particles act as poison (because they are not  supposed to be in the blood, thus the possible bad effects). Now, to confirm this disease, I was amazed that this test hadn't been done before:
      Feed the supposed "leaky gut" patients (e.g. celiacs with damaged bowel) with IV fluids. Because these fluids go directly into the blood stream, and the particles are "elemental" (glucose, vitamins, amino acids... all supposed to be in the blood stream anyway), they shouldn't cause any symptoms. If they notice improvement, the problem is in the digestive system (I'm also including stomach). If not, such condition as "leaky gut" doesn't exist. Rather the problem is how the body reacts to the "elemental" particles. E.g the most common explanation would be diabetes (the IV fluids just caused elevated glucose levels), that also should be tested. Also the "candida theory", because its proponents say the candida is in the WHOLE body, including the blood stream. To eliminate this, patients should take anticandida meds, then again go on IV fluids, and if they NOW get better, it was candida. If not candida, and not diabetes, nor allergies, we have a new condition we aren't even aware of (body reacting to elementary particles with no obvious reason). However, if the patients DO get better, the problem IS in the gut. Now, it could be celiac disease, and the improvement could have been due to eliminating gluten from the diet (because IV doesn't contain gluten). The question remains that did the bowel actually leak any particles? (not just gluten causing autoimmune reactions and malnutrition, and explaining all the  300 symptoms).  Or the patients just get better due to NOW acquiring all the necessary nutrients.  To eliminate these possibilities, they should feed the patients with gluten-free food (or even better, with elemental diet, because it could also be lack of digestive enzymes or something else). If they get worse, the problem is STILL in the gut, and thus the "leaky gut" exists. If not, "leaky gut" is probably a non-existent condition.
    • So Hershey's Miniatures Aren't Gluten Free?
      I am really ill just now - 20 minutes after eating 2 Hersheys Milk Chocolate Miniatures - checked on the Hersheys site and the milk choc. minis are NOT included on their list of gluten-free products -and no, I am not sensitive to dairy, so that's not it.  NO MORE for me... it is not the "end to a perfect day" but it isn't fun.
    • Candida test
      I noticed after I posted this that there are some topics about this posted before.  There is a search function above.  But, if anyone has anything new to post that would be appreciated.
    • Negative tests, possible celiac?
      I had a celiac blood test around may 2015. I'm 20, male. AGA  -        35       range 0-20 TTG IgA -     5      range 0-20 I believe total IgA was normal. I have been gluten free, avoiding gluten best I could for about  2 weeks before this. On june 2015, did a biopsy, results said no signs of villous atrophy, doctor convinced I don't have it. Been gluten free for about a month before this, doctor only said to eat a 'normal' diet beforehand. I know that this could yield false negative results, but I don't think the amount of time is enough to hide the damage?   Had symptoms since I was 4-5 years old, very skinny , pale, constipation, diarrhea, inconsistent nausea (from eating wheat products, soy sauce), migraines, stomachaches, night terrors, sleepwalking. Symptoms were most evident till around 10 years of age. During my teens, the symptoms seemingly start to fade, rarely nauseated, random bouts of diarrhea 1-2 times a month or so.   Been gluten free for up to 8 months now, decided to start eating gluten again just to see how I would feel/ for retesting. Almost on day 2, no noticeable symptoms.  Ate gluten heavy for a month, a year before, breads, pasta 2-3 times a day, lost over 3-4 kg, started feeling overly lethargic during the day/after eating gluten. Sharp stomach pains and mild diarrhea once or twice.   I'm quite certain it's celiac, but if its not, and after reading about how non celiac gluten sensitivity might not exist,i don't really know what to think anymore. Any opinions/ similar experiences would be appreciated.
