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.

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard and taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a disc with records to me, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten. He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
