Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Day 2 of gluten challenge. I feel drugged up and can barely stay awake. Is this common? Also has anyone else done a two week challenge before endoscopy.

Last challenge I tried I said NO after the initial hit a few years back. YES it is very common to feel drugged on a gluten challenge for celiacs or people with NCGI. Your body is fighting the gluten with antibodies hardcore in the BG if your a celiac. Just like how it fights a disease or virus, flu like fatigue, and drugged state of completely out of it are common.

Thankyou Ennis_TX. I think I am going to stop. I take care of an elderly woman. I can't work like this.

Could be the gluten. Could also be the excess carbs and sugar. Which, if you are anything like me, you certainly have added a few things you have been missing. Try some protein when you intake gluten.

Post thought here, how much gluten were you eating for your challenge? You do know only have to eat like 1-2 crackers like a saltine, wheat thin, or ritz a day or a half slice of bread. If it is just the drugged feeling you might try it at night before going to bed and sleep it off. This was still too much for me years ago and now days would lay me out puking for hours.

He told me to start half carbs gluten a few days and then move up to all. The challenge is for 2 weeks. I was at half.

Thankyou ironictruth. I didn't add carbs. I always have protein with carbs to balance sugar level.

The frack?! Wait someone told you to replace half your  consumed carbs with gluten????? OK is this just for a scope or is this some odd diet to try and see how your react? Are you a celiac/NCGI individual, and how long have you been on a gluten-free diet?

Tested positive foe ttg iga test. Doctor didn't tell me to not go gluten free. The withdrawals were terrible and didn't want to go back on it. It is the gastro specialist. Had been gluten free for 2 months.
