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.

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
