Sleepiness After Eating Gluten

Recommended Posts

For those who feel very sleepy after eating gluten, how long does it take after you eat before the sleepiness hits you?

(For me it seems to be half an hour to an hour.)

Not gluten free yet because I'm waiting to be tested.

For me it's 50 minutes to an hour after I start eating. I said "half an hour to an hour" because of the time it takes me to eat the food (I'm a slow eater lol).

So... I haven't eaten gluten for 6 days now, and I'm still feeling sleepy after meals. Is this to be expected in the beginning? Perhaps because the digestive tract hasn't had a chance to repair itself?
