My sweating comes and goes even though i've been  gluten free for almost 9 years. It is less than it was before I went gluten-free but it still happens. Now I think its tied into the supplements I take which also might cause frequent urination.  It cant hurt you to go gluten-free unless you plan to get  certain tests. I also need a endoscopic exam to confirm celiac.  good luck

Hi,

 

I to get very bad night sweats, Iv had it for about a year and a half and its every night! I wake up all the time drenched in sweat from head to toe and it stinks! I have been to the doctors and have had so many blood tests. I have been tested for Diabetes, HIV, Thyroid problems, and TB. They all came back negative. The doctor has also ruled out early menopause and a few other things. I have also been tested for celiac but that came back negative to and they wont do a biopsy. My little sister has been diagnosed with chronic celiacs but her blood tests came back negative as well, it wasn't until she had a biopsy that she was diagnosed. I went gluten free for about a month and the sweating halved. So im guessing that i really should go gluten free to see if the sweating stops al together?

I have  21 years diagnosed with celiac disease and am religious about eating gluten-free. I went through heavy night sweats through peri menopause and menopause then they stopped post menopause. About a year ago the sweats started again, I began to notice an extremely dry mouth (worse than ever before) and as time went on I had a constant bad taste in my mouth. Additionally I noticed my blood pressure levels became erratic. I reported all of this to my three specialists and one primary doctor, the last of which was doing a CBC every three months. In September my primary care referred me to a nephrologist due to abnormal creatinine levels in my blood, although my urine had no negative test results. Days after I met the nephrologist he put me in the hospital with a diagnosis of Stage 5 (End Stage) Renal Failure. When I left a week later they had gotten it down to Stage 4. Since then I've had a kidney biopsy. My kidneys are permanently damaged due to scarring with 50% functioning. There is no known reason for this. Tests prior to January of 2013 showed no creatinine disfunction. My nephrologist told me there is growing research showing a correlation between Chronic Kidney Disease and Celiac Disease. Given my situation, I suggest you have your creatinine levels tested and GFR calculated. Request that you be followed carefully and frequently if your creatinine is lower than 95. 11 months ago mine was 90 and my physician did not note it until it dropped to 40. I don't know if he or I had known this sooner my kidney disease perhaps would not be at Stage 4 now. This means I must go on dialysis and will need a transplant eventually.
