In Topic: Deep Sleep Since Going Gluten Free

21 March 2012 - 12:15 PM

I thought i was the only one! My son was recently diagnosed with Celiac and my husband and I have never shown any symptoms. We all decided to go gluten free for him! but since we've started, i feel like i could stay in bed all day and sleep even though i got a full 7-9 hrs of pure sleep. My husband is also feeling the same way. Our celiac son is actually sleeping through the night now and waking up feeling rested. He's sleeping so sound that he has wet the bed a few nights!



I have been gluten-free for about 5 months, and sleeping much better. I had insomnia for a couple years before diagnosis, and terrible Restless Leg Syndrome. When I told the doctor the RLS was gone, he said it was because of the gluten-free diet. Also I am dreaming again! I hadn't remembered dreaming much at all for several years, except sometimes awakened by a loud sound, usually of a telephone ring like right next to my ear, one time a tremendous explosion noise, but all was quiet upon awakening. Is that celiac too?

In Topic: I Don't Want My Husband To Go gluten-free But Will I Still Be Safe?

I've been diagnosed celiac and gluten-free for about 5 months. My husband is careful, and I kept his bread and crackers and some canned foods for him. He doesn't use the cutting board and the butter dish is marked "gluten-free" at one end -- I have my butter knife and he has his! We used the same toaster -- I don't know if any of this hurts me, as I seem not to show symptoms as much. He likes a lot of the gluten-free foods and we love vegetables and plain meats and fruits, so we are getting along well, so far!
