Blood Pressure

Recommended Posts

This as far as I know is not listed as sympton any where but when I was eating gluten my BP shot up to 140/98 and the docs all wanted to medicate. But everytime I tried the gluten-free diet my BP fell to safe limits. Infact this week the doc measured it at 100/70! I am not taking _any_ meds for it, but my doc is using it as a reason to believe celiac disease is the correct diagnoses.

Anyone else like this? Any good reason for it? Or am I just wierd, again? :)

Hi Vincent. My husbands blood pressure had gotten really low since he's been dx with Celiac (actually it was super low before dx and it's now come up and is now just low). His is normally around 100/58 to 100/60.

I guess he's weird too :lol:

I'm jealous of you 'weird people' :D --My BP started to creep up around 8 years ago. Now, I'm on 2 different meds. for it, the dr. just doubled one of them a month ago. I have to go in on Monday to see if it had an effect. Being gluten-free for over 8 months now has had no effect, for me, on my BP :angry:

Mine used to be really low, like 90/60 and since going gluten-free it has evened out to an average of 124/78. I am thinking that whether it gets higher or lower, if it is BETTER then the gluten-free diet is helping! right? I was really anemic, so I think that is why mine was so low. And I had chest pains a lot, so I have a home BP kit. That is cool that your doc is drawing lines and connecting the dots!

I've had unexplained high blood pressure for years. I had high bp at 20 when I was quite slim. Doctors couldn't explain it....I wasn't ever all that overweight...about 20 lbs max, and I was a very careful healthy eater and strong exerciser...and although I didn't want to take meds, I did agree to try verapamil on one occasion and hydrochlorothiazide (diuretic), and neither of these really helped lower it much. Doctors were very puzzled. I don't know that it has gone down all that much now, but maybe I haven't been gluten free long enough. I keep cheating a bit here and there. :(

I do know that a food allergy reaction will cause bp to spike or bottom out, so I do believe that celiac will do the same thing. Mine used to be quite low, now it is in the normal range. I was so used to the low, that the normal feels weird!
