Alcohol

11 posts in this topic

I do not have celiac disease, but I recently discovered I am allergic to most grains. I have been on a gluten free diet for about 3 weeks now and am feeling much better in countless ways. One thing I have noticed, however, is that alcohol seems to affect me much more. My tolerance seems to have gone out the window. I had a few glasses of wine a few nights ago and got blitzed. Has anyone else found this to be so, or am I imagining this?

OH YES!!!!!! - I posted about this several months ago because I noticed that I was completely hammered after one or two drinks since I went gluten-free. Now I was a lightweight to begin with, but I could handle a few glasses of wine with no problem. Now? Forget it, two glasses of wine at dinner will have me under the table. My fiance jokes that now I'm an even cheaper date! :) Someone on here suggested that I tried potato vodka - I bought a bottle and its been sitting in my garage (frankly I've been too tired to drink) but I will try some and let you know if it makes a difference!

Trust me :rolleyes: I've gone the other way.

3 glasses of wine and I was slurring my words, managed to do a bottle last night while cooking dinner and wasn't slurring... Yeah I know I shouldn't be drinking yet, couldn't help myself though B)

You just make me laugh, Mr. Happy! :lol: I am the same way...I could not tolerate alcohol at all pre-diagnosis but now that I have healed nicely, I can drink my wine and handle it just fine. I still don't drink a lot because I am a lightweight but I do enjoy a glass or two, especially while cooking! Makes it all the more fun!

Nothing wrong with drinking wine at first, as long as it doesn't make you sick. ;)

I could not drink at all while I was very ill for a few years, but now that I have healed, well....CHEERS!

I will admit, however, that my days of 2 painfully dry martinis (and by that, I mean absolutely no vermouth at all) are over.

I've turned into a wimp. I am also a lot smaller than I used to be, so maybe that's part of it. In any case, a small one very cold one is just right.

And absolutely almost always while making dinner. :)

Unless it is champagne and then, 3 glasses. No clue why the difference.

Huh. I've been saying, for me, it's the opposite. Alcohol just doesn't seem to have the effect it had before. I feel like when I do drink, I can drink a lot more and still not catch a buzz like I used to. It's like my body metabolizes it differently or something now. My husband, of course, tells me I'm wrong but I swear it's the truth.

The last time I had a few cocktails, I had Three Olives Grape vodka - which I confirmed was gluten free via their website. I don't know what got me that night (because I made my own dinner) but holy moly did I get glutened BAD.

I'm to the point that I just don't even want to drink anymore....and that STINKS.

If it helps, I have had success with Tito's and Vikingfjord vodkas. Have not had Ciroc, but other people have reported good experiences with it.

Put me down as a new cheap date. I used to drink like a fish, to the point where it's like 'Shouldn't you have thrown up by now? That's wierd.' And now it takes two drinks of vodka and water or two glasses of wine and I'm hammered. I try to enjoy the fact that it takes less money now...

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
