Hi! Is anyone else having a problem w/ canker sores? :blink: I don't know if it's realated to celiac disease but they have been pretty constant in the past months= especially since my diagnosis. I'm using over the counter stuff but want to consult my dentist for stronger meds. I thought I'd throw the quesiton out to all of you first. Thanks in advance!

I get them too now when glutened. I had them frequently before going gluten-free. I never took anything for them--just let them run their course.

I also get them when I drink a lot of Grape Juice.

Get LYSINE. Take it daily. Also, Mesquite flour has lysine in it. I add it to a variety of my foods. My child was prone to them. He's only had one this year since I started him on Lysine!!!!!!!!

this is a problem for me too. What is Lysine and where can I get it from? I've got loads of sores in my mouth at the moment so need to get this sorted. Does anyone take any particular vitamin supplements to deal with this?

A doctor told me that canker sores are cause by stomach acid and I do find that I get them when my tummy has been upset. Deb

I get them if I'm brushing my teeth too fast and slip and catch my gum or lip. Without fail, a couple days later I get a canker sore in that spot. I try to use it as inspiration to brush slower...

I also feel like I'm more prone to them when I'm eating too much sugar, but that could be my imagination.

They are really annoying -- usually it take about a week for them to go away completely. I've never taken meds for them.

I used to get canker sores ALL the time, but they're not as frequent now that I'm gluten free. (Except when I bite myself like an idiot!)

I've never taken medicine for them, but hurricane gel numbs them really well so you can at least eat. You can find that with the baby dental stuff.

Good luck! People who don't get them have no idea how bad it hurts to even talk when you have them!

Canker sores can be caused by magnesium defficiency (it also causes a lot of other things that celiac causes! Any wonder since absorption is such a big problem!) To find out how much you need, get a good magnesium (google Magnesium KAL - it's cheap), then take 200 mg every hour until you reach diarrhea. Then back down from that amount and that's how much you need. You might need to jot down the hours and the number of pills. I went all the way to 4000 mg's before I got diarrhea (big constipation problems before this). I now take about 2000 - 2400 a day. Feel lots better in a lot of ways. You can also cure migraines with mag. When you get a migraine take 200 mg every hour until the migraine goes away!!!

yes, I do. I get mouth ulcers and sores on my tongue at the same time. I also get sores on my tonsils at the same time. I think mine might be caused by tomatoes and maybe grapes. The state of the tongue generally is dictated by a poor digestive system.
