Sweating Caused By Celiac
0

6 posts in this topic

OK so I've had years of some VERY distressing symptoms and the doctor has put it all down to depression but I'm not convinced - I get very heavy sweating, usually in the heat and the lining of my mouth is ridiculously dry making eating and talking very unpleasant. Does this sound like celiac to anyone here? There's no history of it in my family but I've just got to find the route cause.

Hi wibbze,

I also get very heavy sweating when active in the heat. When I say "active", this means something as simple as standing in line at a store or show. I am new to my diagnosis. However, I have leaned a lot about excessive sweating while working towards a diagnosis. This was my most unusual symptom, so my doctors took a very strong look at it. I believe the excessive sweating is due to nerve damage. If this is indeed the cause of the issue, it is permanent. I believe they would consider this as damage to the Autonomic Nervous System. The ANS controls all "automatic" bodily functions, like your heartbeat and digestion. I suppose the inability to properly gauge our bodily response to temperature control is a form of Dysautonomia. Remember, I am not a doctor. I just wanted to say you are NOT alone in this, and provide enough information to send you in the right direction. Cheers :)

Have you had your thyroid checked in any tests? That can stop your body regulating temperature properly (hence the sweating) and is also linked to anxiety and depression.

Not saying this is definitely the cause as I am by no means an expert but was just a thought.

I'm not sure if your question was directed towards wibbze, me, or both of us. Personally, I have had my thyroid tested more times than would ever make sense. My mother has Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism. (Probably caused by undiagnosed Celiac Disease. She prefers to stay "in the dark" on this subject.) Since I have excessive sweating that has gone without explanation, the doctors ALWAYS retest me. Starting at age 15, until now, twenty years later, I have always had "normal" thyroid levels. They say that the definition of insanity is performing the same task repeatedly, expecting a different result. I suppose the doctors feel that this does not apply to them. (How surprising...)

Back on the subject of your post...Thank you for taking the time to propose the topic. Our collaboration makes us stronger, and assists in the study advancement of our common challenges.

Isn't dry mouth linked to Sjogren's?

Hi Again wibbze2, Please disregard my earlier post. I discovered the cause of my excessive sweating! I took animal protein out of my diet. Within days, the heat intolerance waterworks were shut down!!! I am SO excited. Years of dreading Summer or trips to the store are GONE...Perhaps there is another protein in your diet, which could be causing your similar sweating issues...Everyone is different, so it could be another type of protein, than the one causing my sweating issue. If I find that there is a disorder/disease that causes multiple protein intolerance, I will post again. Perhaps the dry mouth issue was brought on by dehydration, caused by the excessive sweating? Anyway, I wish you all the best. Cheers :)

    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
    • Sigh. I totally do love the packs of stretch pants at Costco though...
    • hey, i'm vegetarian and gluten free as well
      have you tried making any recipes with cashew nuts like cashew cheese or pasta sauce? they're really good, easy to make and an excellent way to get more protein/iron
      i can send you some of the easy recipes if you like  
    • Right, fistulas or fissures are usually associated with Crohns, but not celiac.  It is not impossible to have both conditions though.
    • Bravo for being strong enough to bring this topic up.  Depression, anxiety, and other mental or neurological issues are common in celiacs and those with NCGI.  Science is finally catching up to what many of us have already known to be true.   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3641836/ I have suffered from anxiety and still have some neuropathies.  At first I blamed menopause (that alone can make you crazy), but my symptoms tend kick in after a Gluten exposure and improve as I heal.   You are not crazy!  Gluten can cause so many problems.  What other disease requires that the patient be in charge of "medicating" and caring for themselves?  Most of us after a diagnosis get a "Well, just avoid gluten.  Lucky you that there are so many restaurants that offer a gluten free menu!", speech from our doctors.  We never get time off from thinking about food, our next meal and will it be safe?  Our relationship with food changes dramatically and it can be exhausting.   We do need more resources and support from medical, but for now, at least this forum is helpful!
