Since, no one else has answered, I will answer for ME, not my child.

I do get a low grade fever when I've been glutened. I'm a low temp person (in the 97.5 range) and jump to 99 with gluten. For the auto-immune response to include a fever isn't really strange when you think of as an immune-response.

Thank you for your response, that is really good to know. We came home from a b-day party on Saturday and both of my children (4 and 20 months) came down with a low-grade fever and I had a migraine. They both have celiac disease and I eat gluten-free as well. I thought this might be a response to getting something.

Thanks!!

Shannon

Hi, my husband has gluten intolerance.. even before they diagnosed him with it, he used to have a very low level fever sometimes - The doctors first checked him with virus/bacteria tests (a year ago) did not find anything, sent us home and said that eat well - anyway.. the symptoms got worse...they diagnosed him with IBS....symptoms got worse....Finally we found out that he has gluten intolerance - he became gluten free 100%, but still his low fever was there and appered especially when he got TIRED....one day it was there the next day it was gone....

Finally, we saw a nutritionist - he told us that, parasites can do that, they can actually cause food allergies or intolerances like gluten intolerance - so for the last 10-15 days, he has been gluten free, he has been avoiding complex carbohydrates and using some supplements, they basically cleans his body from those parasites....he is feeling GREAT, no fever so far. honestly, I have never seen him this good for the last 2 years.

I hope this helps. the link among parasites, food intolerances, and fever sounds so reasonable and logical to me.

I was diagnosed with Coeliac's about two months ago. Prior to diagnosis I was regularly experiencing a low grade fever and I would expect I was getting a cold or the flu, and then nothing would happen.

Now since going gluten free I have noticed that I get a low grade fever if I accidentally ingest gluten so have figured it was a gluten reaction. It is good to know that others experience this reaction also.

My daughter has the same reaction as Nikki2003, she runs a low grade fever, is lethargic and lays around a lot. She will also tell me that she is getting sick when this happens, that she doesn't feel well.
