Has anyone had problems with nausea even though they are gluten and wheat free. When I was first diagnosed apart from feeling constantly hungry my reflux and stomach problems vastly improved. Recently however, I have felt nauseous much of the time and stomach ache, gas etc. Also every few weeks I wake very early with an overwhelming urge to vomit and get a cold sweat with it. It usually settles down after about an hour, following fennel tea and going to the bathroom. As far as I know, I'm not consuming anything I shouldn't eat and am very particular in the kitchen (I have my own preparation area and utensils etc.). Any ideas? I do also have diabetes and a hiatus hernia.

Yes I have and there doesn't seem to be anything too unusual. I manage my diabetes by diet alone at present, I'm bordering needing medication for it. My Hba1c tests are due this week. I have found that since I can no longer have my usual sources of fibre it's been more difficult to regulate my ideal levels.

Could be hormones fluctuating, or your hernia on an empty stomach, or blood sugar in combo with all of that.

Is there a chance your blood sugar is dipping too low in the middle of the night?

It's possible. It did dip one day when I was out walking the dog, recently. It was a day I'd only had soup at lunch time with a couple of rice crackers. Night time glucose dips are harder to check on. At the moment I've got that many theories going round my head I don't know what to think anymore.

Some people set an alarm to check glucose around 3 a.m.

If you can add beans or leafy veggies it helps with fiber and glucose regulation, for most.

Yes, also I think there's a wrist band you can buy that monitors glucose levels while you are asleep, don't know how much they are though. I eat beans and leafy veg etc. and of course, there's a chance that it's nothing to do with my glucose. I am restarting a food diary to see if that shows anything up.

Is nausea one of your glutening symptoms? Could you have become sensitive to lower levels of gluten than before?

I think the nausea was more to do with the lactose intolerance I developed about 2 years before I was diagnosed Coeliac. Although as I had so many nasty symptoms due to Coeliac it's hard to differentiate between them. At the moment my stomach feels like I've been accidentally glutened, but I don't know how, as I'm fastidious in the kitchen etc. Starting to wonder if gluten is hidden in something I don't know about. One thing I don't really know is how long symptoms persist if there's been some cross contamination.

I'd like to add something to original post....
Have you ever had a throat infection where your throat feels sore, swollen, throbbing and itchy and wish you could put your hand down your throat to give it a good scratch? Well that's what my stomach feels like right now - as well as the nausea.

It sound like it could be a food intolerance of some sort..if not gluten? Do you keep a food log/symptom diary? Write down what you eat and note any symptoms. Many food reactions are delayed so it's good to have a way to go back and see if there's a pattern.

Many of us find that we don't tolerate soy or dairy after omitting gluten. Most vitamins have soy. I had nausea problems a lot too, until I got rid of all traces of soy. It made a big difference.

Also, digestive enzymes and probiotics help a distressed digestive system a lot.

Thanks, you've more or less confirmed my own suspicions about food allergies although I still can't tolerate dairy products and don't eat them. I did wonder about soya products and I've just recommenced my food diary that I started before being diagnosed Coeliac. I have just purchased some probiotics (gluten/wheat/dairy free/soy free) so I've got my fingers crossed. It's more reassuring when other people have the same symptoms, even though it doesn't take away the pain and discomfort.

You might have an H.Pylori infection going on. You could get a test for it and try some natural remedies. Gluten CC is a possibility too, and also other food intolerances might be the problem. Do you eat a little protein with every meal, and especially before bed?

I checked on the wrist watch glucose monitors once and the were about $1500 without insurance.

I think maybe you should call your doctor and have a talk about this hernia, because these night time symptoms sound as if something is going on in there when you lay down. The gas and reflux would be really aggravating that.

You may be a very sensitive person who can not tolerate certain gluten free replacement foods, esp. those with that dreadful supposedly gluten free codex wheat starch. Or you could just be reacting to one of the replacement grains or starches. I didn't know that flax bothers me until I was gluten free for quite awhile, I never had any inclination to eat the stuff, but manufacturers put it in a lot of commercially prepared items. Also, watch out for oats, even the supposedly gluten free ones, as some celiacs react to those, also. We replaced our salt recently because iodized salt here in the USA is turning up with dextrose in it, and I kept having mild reactions to the plain boiled rice and rice noodles made in it, and the only reason I figured that out was that I stopped all rice for a week and the symptoms stopped, then somebody here made a post about their new iodized sea salt box having dextrose in it, and I checked, and I had not caught that my spouse had purchased the same brand with the new label ingredients. Yeah, supposedly they are supposed to call it out if the dextrose, which is derived from grain starch, is sourced from one of the major allergen groups, but it's more likely the stuff is imported from a country which is not consistent. I checked many stores around here, and every single iodized salt in every brand on the shelves now has dextrose in it. WTF. :angry: :ph34r: I mean, who batch -tests SALT for trace glutens ?

Remind me to check the brand of sea salt I get. It has nothing added to it at all. (I can't remember the brand but it comes in a clear plastic bag with pale turquios, dark blue, and red writing. It also says it is not heated or something to that effect.)

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!
