Here is a weird question. Has anyones tolerance to alcohol changed? I can't drink ANY form of alcohol anymore. I love wine. There is no gluten in wine and I would assume my reaction to wine should be the same now as it was before going gluten free. But no, 2-3 glasses transforms me into a very volital person. I anger easily and throw little hissy fits. I have embarrased my husband on two seperate occasions now. I have decided not to consume wine any more but that is bumming me out. I have already given up so many things. I understand a life can be full and fun without wine or alcohol and I reallly wont miss much. I just do enjoy the relaxing nature it used to offer. Hope there is someone out there that can shed some light on this for me.

Could it just be you are not drinking alcohol as much as you did before you were diagnosed and your tolerence level how gone done? Basically you may just be getting "drunk" faster than you are used to.

I know I have gotten drunk quicker because I have been drinking vodka when I used to be a beer drinker.

Also, I read a low carb diet lowers your alchol tolerence. I've experinced that at a Bruce Springsteen concert. Bob Dylan came out and played a song with him which I had to be told had happened. Anyway since we are not eating bread, grains etc maybe all out tolerences are effected.

Just my two cents.

Good thought. I certainly don't know. I sure eat enough of rice and the various flours that are allowed in this gluten-free diet. You could be right. Thanks for your two cents

I have had a similiar experience , i was drunk completely after three glasses of white wine and passed out.

I believe it to be a leaky gut problem associated with coeliac disease and alcohol is to be avoided, besides it is an irritant and bad for your gut.

I have the same experience -- and it is definitely a bummer not to have the pleasurable effects of alcohol anymore. I go straight to the feeling extremely tired part after just one small glass of wine (which used to happen only after several drinks), skipping that nice relaxed buzz part entirely. I'm really hoping that when my body heals, eventually, I'll be able to experience that buzz again.

There is an extensive and relevant thread on this in the Sleep forum. It starts by discussing alcohol and sleep specifically, but branches out to general alcohol tolerance:

I have also found that my tolerance to alcohol is lower. I've been following a gluten free diet for about 3 years now and am finally feeling better (its been a long road, but well worth it). About a year ago, I noticed that even after 1 drink, I felt crummy the next day (almost like a hangover), so I've decided not to consume alcohol at all. When I go out, I order tonic with lime (no gin), or if I'm going to a house party, I bring some mocktails that are available in my grocery store. No one has even noticed. Also, I'm always good to be the designated driver.
