Coincidence Or Connection?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have always been extremely sensitive to cold. Even when the temperature in the house is 20 + degrees C, I wear upwards of 4-5 layers including fleece and a down vest.

At night, I wear fleece pyjamas and have an extra quilt on my side of the bed in addition to our down one.

 

Since going gluten-free, I have been comfortable with as few as 2 layers in the day and haven't needed my down vest even once. At night, I've given up on the extra quilt, and even end up kicking off the down.

 

I'm curious as to whether this is just a coincidence, or whether constantly feeling cold is connected to gluten consumption.

 

Thoughts?

There are so many symptoms of celiac disease that I suppose it's possible it was related. Has your thyroid been checked? A lot of people feel cold with hypothyroidism and some lucky ones report feeling symptom relief once they are gluten-free.

It's been checked a number of times over the years (although not recently), with no indication of a problem.

 

YIKES. That's the biggest list I've seen yet.

LOL It is quite the list isn't it?

 

I was thinking thyroid too. I was also thinking of weight loss. When I lose weight, I am very sensitive to cold - cold will bother me a lot and I wear more layers. Maybe your body isn't fighting to hold onto weight as much now?  Just a wild guess though.

I've always been cold... cold feet especially.  I've only been gluten-free for about 3 1/2 months but I've noticed that I don't get bothered as much by the cold and it doesn't seem to take me as long to warm up once I come inside from being out in the cold.  My night sweats have eased up too.
