Sugar & Anxiety
0

2 posts in this topic

Hi! I have a question and concern. I found out after over 10 years of suffering that I have a Gluten Allergy. I also have a Lactose allergy which I've known of since I was 5. As of April I have been gluten-free and only as of recently I've been getting HORRIBLE anxiety and sometimes really back panic attacks for no reason. I did a lot of research and decided to cut sugar out of my diet to see if it would help reduce the anxiety I had. It stopped, and I feel like a new person!

I'm pretty much assuming I am hypoglycemic. My problem is, how do I get fruit's and healthy sugars into my body without having an attack? I've had processed sugar in small amount ( under a tablespoon ) and even 4 grapes and got anxiety. Has anyone else struggled with this? I'm hoping to get some help on this issue.

I struggle with sugar. I have known I have hypoglycemia for many years. I know some people can't tolerate fruit at all. If you fit in to that category, vegetables are a tasty replacement. I have sometimes wondered if I need to do that, but I haven't yet.

I do have a plan. I only eat fruit with a meal. To optimize you would want to have a tablespoon of good oil (coconut, butter, or olive) included with the meal. You would also want to have 2-3 oz of protein and 27 carbs. I think of having bites of fruit rather than whole fruits. It helps if you have a family member to share your fruit with.

I use to drink large quantities of fruit juice. I accidentally ran out for quite a while. I came out of the fog! I didn't know I was foggy until I quit. When the fruit juice came back to the house; I noticed right away that I felt tired and foggy. I don't suggest fruit juice.

Fruit is high in nutrients. It is also high in sugar. Man has bred fruit to have more and more sugar. Be careful with fruit. When I don't have the sugary stuff, vegetables gain in flavor! Get as many nutrients as you can without sugar and you will gain in health!

      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it.

      "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.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "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.

      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.
