muscle laziness post-gluten-free diet

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

In searching the forum, I found a lot of posts about muscle hypotonia before following a gluten-free diet but nothing about it for people following a gluten-free diet.  While we don't have what sounds like muscle hypotonia exactly, my daughter and I both have "lazy" facial muscles, according to our speech therapist.  We also both suffer from sleep apnea so we have some apparent muscle weakness in our throats as well.  

I'm wondering if we are lacking some enzyme that's needed for muscle building, as we are both on the petite side.  FWIW, I am on the autoimmune paleo diet (3+ years) while my daughter can eat anything gluten-free (I'm so jealous!).  ND is on top of our labs and supplements.  Does anyone have experience with something similar?

    I've spent a lot of time looking up to see if I can find a post about a similar situation but haven't had luck finding it. I've never been 100% gluten free. As of this past Spring, I consumed gluten regularly (maybe a few times per week?...
