Does anybody get really hot sometimes? I'm wondering if this is a symptom of Celiac.
For as long as I remember I've always been the hotest one in the room. I am miserably hot. ALL THE TIME.
I'm not talking about heat flashes. My house is so cold people that come over bring sweaters.
Just wondering if anybody else has this problem. I've never met anyone else that suffers from that.

I used to be really hot and sweat up a storm. Summers were awful for me.I have been on the diet 2 months and noticed it is going away. It was always blown off as the change from Dr's or my allergies.

You've just met your twin! :lol: I have always been this way, pretty much from birth. Even as a kid, when the weather got hot, I went indoors to escape the heat or had to go swimming to stay cool. I am on the other side of menopause and have hot flashes, which makes the problem worse. I think it has little to do with Celiac but was told by a person versed in Eastern medicine that people with autoimmune problems tend to produce more heat. I doubt that is true for everyone but who knows?

Like yourself, I can walk around in a 62 degree house, in winter, in short sleeves, and be comfortable. Plus, I have an under-active thyroid so go figure!

I never bring it up at the doctors because they know squat about those kinds of issues...I just dress light and live with it. I will say that I never get sick and maybe it's because all those germs cannot proliferate in warmer temps. That's the purpose behind a fever so there may be pluses to being warmer.

I'm always hot. If someone turns the temp up at work to over 72 I feel like I'm going to pass out. I keep my house about 65 and take coolish showers.

Ask your doc for a full panel of thyroid tests: TSH, free T3, free T4, TPOab, etc. You might have hyperthyroid symptoms (feeling too warm all the time).

Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.

Before going gluten free I was always too hot. I would sit right in front of the air conditioner so that I was cool enough without freezing everyone else in the room. When I went to see the GI for the first time she asked if I was hot a lot. I said I was always hot. I was actually in a tank top at the time and she had a sweater on in the hospital. She asked if I was hot then and I said "yes" I would also sweat like crazy at night. Good luck at finding out what is causing your heat.

for my whole adult life- ive been oversensitive to heat... easily nauseaus and EXHAUSTED from the heat... i prefer the colder weather- it gives me more energy and makes me happy... the florida summer kills me.

that being said- this oversensitivity was somewhat alleviated when i went gluten free- in fact- i dont have to keep my house as cool as i did before.

but i also have Hashimoto's AND Grave's and am still battling with overheating... but better since going gluten-free.

there's older threads somewhere on this forum- and parents talking about their kids always ripping their socks off cause they're always hot.

I've never been able to wear socks because I get overheated too easy. I dread summertime. It can be 5 degrees outside and i'm bundled up but no socks. Lol, people think i'm nuts, but i'll start getting hot, my feet feel like they are on fire then I start having a hard time breathing then I feel like i'm gonna faint if I don't get somewhere and get cooled down fast. Yep, I know exactly how you feel.

I'm not celiac but have had this problem off and on. It was bad when I was a kid. I would sweat at the drop of a hat.

For some reason, shopping would do this to me. I hated trying on clothes because I would get soooo overheated.

Then when I was pregnant, I developed a thyroid problem. The overheating was severe. It was so bad I demanded that my husband install an air conditioner in our spare bedroom. I moved in there. Pretty much lived in there with the cold air blasting as cold as it could be.

After the baby was born, I kept her in there with me, but kept her well dressed. It was summer and Cape Cod.

Eventually I learned of the connection of soy (I was eating a lot of it) and my thyroid. I stopped eating the soy except for soybean oil (only if no other option) and soy lecithin. No soy protein, no soybeans at all.

My thyroid is normal now. I am no longer on meds. I do still overheat at times but it is not at all like it used to be.

I used to keep my apartment at 62-65 and I was comfortable in shorts. I could go outside in the snow in my bare feet and shorts and not get cold for a while. Two years into gluten-free/CF/SF that has changed. Multiple thyroid tests over the years, all ok. I think that soy was the cause. I didn't remove soy from my diet until 6 months into the gluten-free but when we look back on it, within a couple months I started getting cold at night, then wanting to have a fire built, and for a while I was colder than my wife most of the time! Eventually (another year) it started to even out, and I'm now pretty comfortable between 68-70 in jeans and normal clothes. But I still sweat at the drop of a hat!

For me, soy is not the issue. I have been like this from the time I was a small child and back in the 60's and 70's, soy products were not marketed like they are today and people were not consuming them, for the most part. I am also post-menopausal, and my hormone bank is empty so the soy should actually help with that and it has not. There is no difference in how hot I run, except it has gotten worse post-menopausal, which is normal. Not fun, but normal for most women.

I would expect that soy could definitely play an issue for some, as it can affect hormone levels. I am glad to hear there are others who have this problem because people treat me like I am really weird because of it. It actually has it's benefits because I live in New England, it gets very cold here in winter and I love it and am never uncomfortable....except in summer when I hibernate with the AC going! :blink:

Which thyroid test was done? How long ago? Most docs only consider TSH, which can be normal, when you have autoimmune thyroid problems. Also the 'normal range' for TSH was revised to a narrower range in 2003. Many docs still use the older, outdated wider normal range of TSH. So many people with thyroid problems go undiagnosed.

hey julie- i am trying to avoid the soy too- as i also just read it specifically aggravates the Grave's antibodies (i have all 3 antibodies..)... and im glad you mentioned that- because it's IN EVERYTHING!!!!! i dont eat regular soy- but it's in every freaking oil & dressing & choco chips :( even my beloved gluten-free Chipotle bowl... they use soybean oil :(

but you're not on meds anymore???? how long did it take being gluten and mostly soy free to get there?? did you get your antibodies re-tested? or do you just go off your thyroid numbers??? what were your numbers to start with?

God i really hope one day to not have to rely on meds.... or at least have the grave's antibodies go to below range, and just deal with the hashi... its been a rollercoaster
