Rest Vs. Working Out
0

3 posts in this topic

Hey gang.

Think I've just figured out that I've been eating contaminated lentils for a few months and the backlash is kicking my butt. Along with the belly that feels like it's full of razor wire, my most prevalent and burdensome symptom is flu-like body aches. It hurts to move and all I want to do is lay down, but I also have Lyme Disease and light working out/sweating out toxins always helps with a Lyme flare-up; so I was wondering if this sorta works the same with Celiac. So far I seem to get 50/50 results with light workouts when I've been glutened. Sometimes they'll make me feel better for an hour or two after the workout but it all goes out the window as soon as I eat my next meal. Is it better to rest when you're glutened or do you find light exercise to help?

Thanks!

For me and what I've looked up it's better to work out, but not a heavy duty work out, more like stretches, walking, light weights. I drink several 32 oz. containers of water while working out, so I'm running to the restroom and getting rid of all the toxins. Lots of water helps me big time. Maybe if you drink your meal after your workout it will feel better? Like a protein drink that's gluten free (usually GNC has gluten free protein pwder mixes). Not sure how that would feel with the lyme disease but I'm sure you know more about that. Hope this helps. ;) I've been there many years so I can feel your pain and hope you find a good routine.

That's kinda what I figured. I don't see how light exercise and sweating out toxins could hurt. Thanks for the reply!

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
