Sweating

6 posts in this topic

I have been having terrible night sweats. I wake up drenched in sweat and have to change my clothes. The sheets are soaking wet and then I lay there and shiver. I got up and took my temp. and didn't have a fever. Is this common in celiac? Is it some sort of detox from the gluten?

My blood test showed elevated liver enzymes maybe that has something to do with it.

It's not gyn related. I was just there a few weeks ago.

Thx!

This happened to me too before going off gluten and then for about 2 months after I was off it. Shooting from the hip bit but I think it has to do with systemic inflammation caused by gluten and possibly from mineral deficiencies. I started taking Magnesium glycinate and I don't get the night sweats anymore but I also am 6 months gluten free now.

Had terrible night sweats after going gluten-free... No night sweats for 3 weeks now fingers crossed. I've been gluten-free for 3 months...

Have never had night sweats before being diagnosed even though I had other symptoms/problems, it was very alarming... Personally think it was some kind of detox...

You know, I had severe night sweats for years before being DXed. I insisted to my doctor that I had thyroid problems, because that is a symptom. But my thyroid always tested normal. It never occurred to me that it could have been the celiac disease. It was just like you described, my hair would be drenched, as were my pj's. I would actually have to get up, towel off and change my clothes.

If it's any consolation, I've been gluten free for 14 months and I can't even remember the last time I had a night sweat incident. Hopefully once it's cleared out of your system it will stop for you.

I've had hyperthyroidism for a couple decades now but just went gluten-free too recently to know about the "after" symptoms. Night sweats have come and gone for me, but never too bad.

But I was under the impression that problems regulating body temperature overall is a pretty standard symptom of thyroid disease of any sort. And my guess would be that it would depend on how one's thyroid may have been damaged that would determine long-term outcomes after going gluten free. For instance, you may still have nodules for the rest of your life or they could shrink on their own.

Next time you see a doctor, you can ask to have your hormone levels tested which is a pretty good indication as to whether or not you may have problems with your thyroid. Being just slightly outside of the "normal" range can still cause pretty strong symptoms. And what that "normal" range is has shrunk over the years but many doctors still go by the old numbers so make sure to do your own research about what the test results mean if you do get tested.

I have no clue how all of the other malnourishment concerns related to celiac may play into the body-temperature equation but would love to learn more. I've only been gluten free for a short time now and think I may already be noticing that my hands and feet aren't so icy anymore. I hope that continues to improve.

The liver side - I know nothing about either.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
