Sweating Caused By Celiac

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...)

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 :)

    • artificial sweeteners?
      A few weeks ago I ate a quest bar and ended up feeling a bit sick for the rest of the day, and that night I started feeling nauseous and had the chills, shortness of breath, and ended up staying up all night because I just didn't feel well. I thought maybe it was too much fiber or protein, I definitely don't get enough of either (working on it) so I thought perhaps going from barely any to quite a bit could be it. Then I scrapped that idea, thought it was corn. I've heard that corn can cause symptoms similar to gluten.. but I eat other things with corn in them on a regular basis, so nope. Finally, I thought maybe it could be artificial sweeteners. I'm not a big fan and generally try to avoid them so I haven't had them in a while. Well, yesterday I had another quest bar left so I opened it and took the smallest bite in the world.. I mean it was practically a crumb. I also happened to eat a piece of sugar free gum so it could have been either one. But shortly after I started to feel kind of 'off', which turned into the same overall bad feeling that I had last time and I didn't sleep until 7am because of it. The reaction wasn't as bad as last time, but it definitely wasn't pleasant. But whether it was the gum or the bar it seems hard to believe that such a small amount would make me feel that sick.. Though if I had that much gluten I would be dead to the world for days, so maybe not THAT unlikely. However, I then noticed that the antacid that I sometimes take if I get glutened or something has sorbitol in it and I've never felt sick from that. So does it just happen that sorbitol doesn't make me sick but other sweeteners do? Also, I've never liked drinking diet soda because for as long as I can remember it has made my stomach upset. Not like this, but just that 'off' feeling for a couple hours after drinking it. Does anyone else get sick from artificial sweeteners? I'm hoping this is it, otherwise I'm kind of at a loss. I can't think of anything else in those bars that would make me sick and it doesn't seem like a coincidence that I got sick both times I tried eating them. I know it wasn't gluten either because I ate pretty plain things both days, nothing out of the ordinary that would do that. Plus the reaction is different. It's similar to gluten but not the same, with gluten it's (at first) just my stomach and with this like I said it's just a general sick feeling. What do you think?

      Great discussion! These are my take-aways in researching this site and several others (not just for McD's but other items like beer & wine for a friend who crafts his own, but I am very sensitive +other digestive issues) 1. Cross contamination is always a possibility so be aware, be prepared & be safe. 2. Gov't regs regarding gluten-free claims are not great. Plus they deal in Parts Per Million (ppm) so as long as it is below the threshold, it can claim gluten-free. Your allergy & my sensitivity will be triggered at different levels, so we may react to to something that is less than 0.001ppm & is labeled as gluten-free. 3. Some cooking/processing procedures can destroy the offending allergen  (this case, gluten). I got this from 2 sources. One when I was trying to learn about gluten-free alcohol products. The other from a friend whose daughter is severely allergic to peanuts, coconut & a few other items. She spoke to the Allergist about a food item her daughter was exposed to but did not react as expected (thankfully!). After looking into it, the doctor explained that even though the allergen is listed, it may not have been the part of the food that she is allergic to (I know I am explaining this poorly, sorry) &/or the processing of the ingredient can alter it on a molecular level so as to not cause a reaction. Apparently the opposite is true: processing changes can cause us to react to things we otherwise wouldn't. 4. I don't find McD's to be greasy (you should see how I cook!). But it is so full of chemicals it's no wonder humans don't process it well. 5. COOK :-D   Certainly, I am not an expert & I know I probably didn't interpret everything correctly. So, if you have more info to help correct my "take-aways", it would be welcomed. Thank you!

      I have had one or two and was fine.  I don't have an issue with dairy.  If I remember right, most smoothies are gluten-free.
