So Ive been gluten free for over two months now...I feel great but recently I noticed Im getting sick after having a glass of white wine. I checked months ago to make sure its gluten-free and it is, its St James white wine and the first time I thought I drank too much on an empty stomach (two glasses on new years eve) led to an entire night of vomiting and diarhea then last night I had one glass and again an entire night of vomiting etc. Do any of you have reactions to alcohol? I have been so careful with what I eat and drink, havent been glutened once and now this? Any thoughts or experiences?

I only have a problem when I over-indulge. Your system may be especially sensitive to anything since you are so recently gluten-free. Give it a little while and try again. Several things that made me sick at first do not any more since my system has had time to heal.

Over the years, a great deal of people have reported issues with alcohol of all
kinds after going gluten free. I myself went from being able to drink like a fish to
being a two-and-done person almost overnight. Some people have trouble
tolerating alcohol at all. For now, I would say to go ahead and skip all alcoholic
beverages for at least a few months, clearly your system is rejecting it, and it's
not going to help if you keep forcing the issue.Sorry you feel so yucky! If any
alcohol had ever made me throw up I don't think I'd ever drink again....

The crazy thing is it was almost like my stomach wasnt digesting my meals yesterday at all. When I got sick after my glass of wine this was around midnight I threw up dinner...ALL of it and lunch and even breakfast! All of it like it was just sitting and not digesting...anyone have that issue too? Maybe I need to start a probiotic? any brands that are gluten-free? So I think the wine made me sick but there is something else going on (or lack of going on) within my stomach and digestive system. I do take vitamins daily etc but maybe I need something else too.

Maybe, in addition to probiotics, you need to take a digestive enzyme with each meal. Gluten can play havoc with the pancreas, and if it isn't putting out enzymes, nothing much is going to get digested. All you've got working for you is the enzymes in your saliva at that point. Of course, you could have a motility problem too, slow passage of food through the gastrointestinal tract. Do you have a doctor you can talk to about this? They can measure the amount of time it takes for your food to passage, and there are medications that can help speed it on its way. But first I would try the digestive enzymes. :)

I've had problems with tolerating any alcohol since my first coeliac symptoms started to arise....I completely skip the drunk stage and go straight to an awful sick/hangover stage!

I too used to be able to drink (wine) with no problem.... then I got sick. I wen through about 6 months of not drinking (and pouting ;) ) before I tried it again. It was another six months or so before I could do much more than a Small glass without becoming totally drunk. Your body has gone throug hmajor trauma and like anything else needs time (sometimes it feels like too much time) to heal. While you heal you may find that other foods/beverages start to bother you. It's all in the healing........ Give it some time and try again.

I can drink red, not white -- and have to limit the red due to histamine intolerance.

White wine started bothering me shortly after I went gluten free -- I always thought it was because it had more sulphites than red -- I don't do well with anything that ends with -ite, -ate or -ose.

The alcohol is probably bothering you more right now because your gut is trying to heal. Like others have said, I'd lay off it for a few months then see how it goes.
Many celiacs do end up having problems with alcohol in general though, or sulphite allergies, etc.
I know what you mean about "skipping the drunk stage". I was HORRIBLY sick on NYE as well (didn't eat a full meal before going, and who knows what kind of CC I got into with party food...) and it took weeks to heal my poor raw gut. Thankfully, on a good stomach day, I can handle a couple glasses of wine (slowly) with little problem.

So, be a tea-totaller (sp?) for a few months, then ease back into it and see how you feel.

And definitely take digestive enzymes. Even 4 years gluten-free, I don't know what I do without them now.

happy healing

I can't drink at all, even before gluten free, I would get horribly dizzy, nauseated, etc. after even a sip. I take Soloray digestaway enzymes.

I used to take VSL#3 for my leaky gut, but they are very expensive, and now I just buy whatever looks good. Lots of forum members recommend Digest Gold.

Thank you all so much! I jotted those names down and will look for them this weekend. I do feel 1000% better since being gluten-free I guess I just need to allow my body to continue to heal and take some supplements to aide in digestion.
