Gluten Allergy And Blood Pressure Spikes

Recommended Posts

I've had the gluten allergy for about 15 years and I can't remember having problems with my blood pressure spiking. But over the past 6 months it seems like that when I get in to certain forms of gluten my blood pressure gets erratic and will go from normal to 139, 185, 200. It doesn't stay high, but goes up and then will go to like 120 or 115. The way I found it is when I got on my treadmill and hooked up the blood pressure clip to my finger. As I walk I can see the blood pressure reading change. It also seems like the blood pressure spikes are accompanied by a mild form of asthmatic type breathing, itching of my feet, legs and scalp and pressure and burning in my sinus. Now I have been getting Chelation IVs over the past 10 months to reduce metals in my body and they have helped. I don't know if somehow they have affected how I react to Gluten, but this does have me puzzled. I'm going to buy me a more reliable type of blood pressure monitor I can wear and activate, but I think the treadmill one is still fairly reliable.

With a "traditional" allergy the blood pressure can spike. I know mine does if I get milk. :o I'm not sure about other forms of sensitivities.

It definitely can--plus the pulse often gets rapid too.

Diagnosed celiac sprue as infant: failure to thrive & pneumonia-back on grains age 4. Began herbs 1971 combating chronic kidney disease/general ill health 1973. Avoid wheat family and "allergens" by 1980. Late 80's doc. diagnosed candida: cave-man diet. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath 2006; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall 2007; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can't tolerate most herbs now. Can now eat brown rice & other gluten-free grains (except corn) & even maple syrup & now homeopathic medicine works! Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I've made progress!

Another agreement. It also raises my blood sugar, leading to a misdiagnosis of diabetes when I went to the doctor for help getting over a glutening. I was real thankful I said no thanks to diabetes meds after a year of morning, post and pre prandial reading revealed that the only time my BS is high is when....glutened.
