Does Wine Make You Sick?

28 posts in this topic

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.

Hi Spryng,

I can't do any grapes, so no wine or anything with grapes. Took me a while to figure that one out. I thought it was the alcohol in the wine, but it was the grapes instead. Oh well. :)

A few more things that you might want to pick up on your shopping trip.

Pepto Bismol

Milk of Magnesia

Betaine HCL

DGL (Deglysterized licorice)

Mastic Gum

Lactaid pills ( if you are eating dairy still)

Aspirin

Industrial size TP supply (Ha Ha, just kidding)

Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:

Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.

Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.

Don't eat in restaurants

Eat only whole foods not processed foods.

Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.

Take probiotics.

Take gluten-free vitamins.

Take digestive enzymes.

Avoid dairy.

Avoid sugars and starchy foods.

Avoid alcohol.

I am allergic to grapes. I cannot drink red wine, raisins, or grape juice (or grapes). But I can have a glass of champagne occasionally and not get sick. I don't know why only the red bother me though. I remember before I found out about it and I had a glass of wine and I thought I was coming down with the flu. I was so sick, was vomiting horrilbly and then I passed out for about 3 hours and woke up fine. Same thing happened after I had gluten free raisin bread...That's when it all started coming together and sure enough-allery test was positive!

I began to get sick from wine, especially whites, about 2 years into being gluten free due to a sulfite intolerance which I had never had before. Some white wines have 3x the amount of sulfites than reds. I kept a food journal and realized that I was reacting to other sulfited foods like raisins and dried fruits, molasses, coconut flakes, and vinegar. There are no test for a sulfite intolerance, but there are a ton of us on FB in a group called "sulfitesnomore." The majority of the women on there have either celiac disease or non celiac gluten sensitivity, so it seems that the 2 problems are somehow linked.

I had a lot of issues with wine (some would be fine, most would be horrible) before going gluten free. Even just a glass or two would often have me throwing up and miserable the next day. Now, about two years into going gluten free I very rarely have an issue and can split a bottle over dinner with my husband without worrying. I think it was one of the many things that I never associated with my other digestion problems until eliminating gluten "mysteriously" made so many other issues go away.

being a two-and-done person almost overnight.

I am dealing with the same adjustment. I've been gluten-free since May and only in the last few months started having issues with drinking. If I have three, I black out. It's embarrassing to admit this has happened more than once, but I used to be able to put 'em down and now two is almost over doing it. Just be sure to listen to what your body says!

Yes, wine makes me very. very sick. Almost sicker than a gluten reaction, and it is not related to my Celiac DIsease. I have ALWAYS had issues with wine...and actually all alcohol altogether. I just cannot tolerate it. I get intolerable pain in my back (kidneys). feels like someone is giving me a huge bear hug, and then I get extremely nauseated, and dizzy. ANd this is usually after only a few sips. So I have avoided all alcohol for years. It is very sad, because I love Margaritas, but it makes me so sick. Cramping pain.

lolz - wine makes me punch people in the face - HAHAHAHAAA!!!!

seriously = it does seem like it makes me 'zero' to 'oh no' since being gluten free. i stick to the redbridge..... <and even those i have a lower tolerance than i used to. (oh, well - saves me $$) :D

(it's been over a year since i dared to drink wine - last time i drank chardonnay (and not very much!) i throat-punched one of my best friends and my husband threw me over his shoulder and carried me out. i woke up in bed the next day absolutely mortified. hold the wine, please!)

I enjoyed craft beers and wine prior to my diagnosis. The beer is gone but I do enjoy a glass of wine occasionally, albeit rare. A glass of red is a non issue but a glass of white throws me off a little. Nothing exaggerated but I can tell the difference.

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
