Alcohol

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...

    • tom & chee!  good to know   they grill the sandwich on a separate pan?  or do you just order soup and salad.  so cool to find more places to eat out!!
    • Hi everybody,  I have had symptoms of Celiac since mid pregnancy and they have gotten worse over the last 5 months post partum. I have constipation, periods stopped, extreme fatigue,  joint pain, weak muscles, dizzyness, migraines, light sensitivity,  pins and needles in hands and feet, elevated TSH, depreason and anxiety. Was put on thyroid meds but it didn't help any of my symptoms. My doctor told me to try gluten free and reintroduce it. I tried it for 2 weeks and started feeling quite a bit better, then reintroduced it and felt worse than ever! It's definitely a gluten problem. She suggested I get the Celiac panel run so I got tested for Ttg iga, DGP igg and EMA all came back NEGATIVE! by this point I had only reintroduced gluten for a few days. She said my antibodies shouldn't go down by much in this time frame. Should I push for a referral to a GI doctor? I don't know why I feel the need for diagnosis? Probably my mother in law laughing when I said I can't eat gluten anymore and she tried to offer me things like donuts, saying it's just a little.  She just doesn't get it. So now, do I suffer for 6 weeks to get the biopsy or just stop eating gluten and be done with it.  I have also noticed while introducing new foods to my baby that he throws up whenever I give him anything wheat based. I doubt they can diagnose a baby and I refuse to damage his intestines for a diagnosis.  Maybe I should get my daughter tested as well? She is 3 and has been complaining of upset tummy and is frequently constipated. She is growing well though but is also quite thin. She is not a big eater. She may be constipated because she holds it. She is afraid to poop on the potty. Since I have had symptoms for only about 10 months, could there not be much damage yet? Sorry for the long post! 
    • The best thing you can do is get to your regular doctor and have a celiac panel run. You might also ask to see an allergist. Be sure to keep eating gluten until all celiac related testing is done.
    • Sounds like you may be alleric to something in both products. Next time you are at the store compare the ingredients of each to see if they have one in common that you don't think you eat in other products..  It might be a good idea to schedule an appointment with your doctor for a referral to an alergist to be on the safe side.
    • I don't know if this will help while you are waiting on the endoscopy but figured it might so here goes... If your life permits you could try going to bed so you can get up a couple hours earlier. Then eat something shortly after you are up like Cream of Buckwheat or Cream of Rice, an egg or something else gluten-free. You don't have to have gluten at each meal while waiting for your testing to be finished and something gluten-free for breakfast may sit better. You can get your gluten at lunch or dinner. By getting up a couple hours earlier that may allow you system to 'clear' the D and relieve a bit of the anxiety.  Ask your doctor if you can take something like Immodium with the antidepressant. That may help your day be easier and lessen the D the next morning.
