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.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
