Increased Sensitivities?
0

2 posts in this topic

I was just wondering if folks have had the experience of, once going gluten-free, becoming aware of other food sensitivities you have, that before, when you were eating gluten, must have blunted other things. I honestly don't remember ever thinking I had any problems with ANYTHING, except maybe eating too much cheese or protein late in the evening, yet, now, two months after going gluten free, I am aware of not feeling so good after eating certain things--like sudden stomach cramps, or a tightness in my chest, or my throat getting all gummy. Did I just not notice because my body was so assaulted by gluten that these we minor in comparison (like when I had a bike wreck many years ago, I didn't notice that my wrist really hurt until all the other pains subsided), or am I really becoming more sensitive to other things?

It seems to be pretty common to have secondary intolerances once we are gluten-free. Dairy and soy seem to be at the top of the list?

Maybe gluten symptoms counteracted symptoms from something else, so you weren't aware?

It might also mean that you need to do more healing? With a "leaky gut" things can slip out into your blood stream and cause reactions? Once healed these reactions shouldn't happen.

If you find you start to react to things that you know you didn't have a problem with when first gluten-free, it's a good idea to get tested for a small intestine bacterial overgrowth. (SIBO) It's easy to test for and treat.

The best way to ferret out what you might be reacting to is to keep a log of all foods you eat, and note any symptoms. Many food reactions are delayed, so having a log is the best way to look back and see if there are patterns between eating certain foods and symptoms.

    • Gardasil
      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.

      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
