I don't have a problem unless it is very hot - hot baths, not showers can trigger my urticaria.
My intolerance of heat/humidity and exercise in weather over 65 has improved at times since I have been gluten-free, but never gone away completely.
You will likely see improvement in many symptoms that you either didn't tie to celiac or you simply dismissed as "a little this or a little that" - I know I have.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE -- probable cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.
If you have read this far - hang in there - obtaining health with any AI is a marathon, not a sprint!

I try to lead a life as clean as possible and shower as little as humanly possible without being gross. That may sound gross by itself, but it keeps me from being crazy. There is simply no freaking way I would shower every day, I'd be insane. I go for 2-3 times a week. I work out on those days only right before I shower. Other than that I live a more or less sedentary life which probably isn't particularly healthy, but it's particularly unsmelly. During the summer, to always get every other day time between showers I'll damp wash myself in sweaty areas. I should point out that I also don't work a "regular" job every day, so I don't have to worry about offending people besides my husband or MIL who can frankly bugger off.
Gluten free January 2012.
Tyramine free June 2012 - slowly getting a few foods back at a time.... scratch that
Low Histamine April 2013 - I swear this better be the last time I have to restrict my diet because giving up chocolate is the final straw
Iodine free briefly fall 2012
If ever you are feeling like you’re tired, And all your uphill struggles leave you headed downhill
If you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you, And your appetite for pain has drinken its fill
I ask of you a very simple question, Did you think for one minute that you are alone
And is your suffering a privilege you share only, Or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home
