Perspiring During Eating?

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten free (or course as the best of my ability). I have always been plagued with this strange event.

When eating at home, and always gluten free, I sometimes break out into a sweat on my face and travels down on my body. It happens sooo often and don't know why. Also, when I eat out.

It is not a menopausal deal, as I started Peri-m in my 35's and have not been "productive" in 10 years. So, no hot flashes here. Been there, done that.

My hubby wanted to make some cranberry sauce that he enjoys with his yogurt in the evening. So he made it. I tasted it, and it was good. BUT, he rinsed the crans in the same col lender, that I rinse his pasta. I do not use it for anything other. OK, possible cause.

My question is: Can you get an instantaneous response, with my perspiration, almost immediately after digestion, and what is this about. Maybe tonight it may have been cross/contam. but not always.

Does any one share my experience?

I used to get something similar happening...turned out to be my blood sugar spiking up. After many blood sugar tests and visits to all sorts of doctors, what we learned is that my blood sugar levels are fine (meaning they never go too high) but the problem was that when I ate, the blood sugar didn't rise slowly. Instead it spiked quickly, usually as I was eating.

The fix to the problem was to make sure that everytime I ate something, it included a fat, a protein and a carb. this way the protein and fat would slow down the reaction of blood sugar from the carb. What this means is that you can't just eat carbs all alone. This includes potato chips, cookies, fruit, a glass of milk, low-fat yogurt, etc. But to make these things acceptable, just eat a slice of cheese, or drizzle with olive oil, or add butter, or have a slice of luncheon meat, or a couple bites of leftover chicken, etc.

If this is indeed what is going on with you...it might be caused by eating 'gluten-free' packaged goods that are very high in carbs. Also, low-fat foods can be very high in carbs too.

Oh, and if you like your coffee or tea sweetened with sugar, the way to slow down the blood-sugar response is to use a full-fat heavy cream instead of milk. the fat will slow down the sugar.

Hope this helps...

Thanks for your reply. I just had some blood work done any my glucose level was 92 (range 71-116), so I guess it appear within range. Maybe the the blood sugar can jump around a bit and not be at a constant level? Very interesting <_<

I remember my grandfather used to do this - every time he ate he'd sweat profusely. So much so that beads of sweat would roll down his face. I've always wondered what caused that - and I've never seen it with anybody else.

I, certainly am not in the profuse area here, but still is quite perplexing to me. If I may ask, and I do hope that your grandfather is still with you, but if not, may I asked "how is is not with you". :(

He died a few years ago. He had alzheimer's. I'm not sure if that ultimately killed him, or if it was a stroke. He was in his late 70's though.

I balanced my fats and carbs yesterday. One day without sweats. I have my fingers crossed. I need a glycemic index with a complete list of fruits and veggies.
