Eating Gluten Free Bread, Feel Drowsy After Intake

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

After I eat my gluten free bread, I feel drowsy etc.... I notice everytime I feel like the lump on the back of my head is trying to improve, and other symptoms my intake of gluten free bread ( or bread in general) was a lot lower than previous times. What could this be? I always suspected I could have a yeast allergy.... also noting that everytime I eat my gluten free bread I place jelly on top of it ( Smuckers Concord Grape Jelly).

Things I'm nearly 90% sure I'm allergic to:

Monosodium Glutamate

Gluten

Things I suspect:

Yeast *

Peanuts

* Suspect/ more aware of this allergn at a higher level

All in all, I'll be glad when I can become healthy again.

This might be because you are getting to many carbs and sugar with no protein to balance things out. Have you tried any of the other nut butters? Do you get the same effect say after having toast with some eggs and sausage or bacon? Try some protein with your bread and jelly and see if the same thing happens.

A lot of the important part of our digestion happens in the small intestine. For example, that is where we release lactase in order to digest lactose, and it is where we handle sugars as well. If your small intestine is damaged, you may find it needs time to repair before you can digest lots of foods very well.

I have been gluten free for two years and still cannot do dairy (though I test negative for casein intolerance) and I believe certain sugars (sorbitol in peaches? fructose in apples/pears?) are difficult for me.

You'll find that you have to adjust your diet much more than just the gluten - but know that once you start to heal, AND balance out, you should be able to eat just about whatever you're not legitimately allergic/intolerant to.

In the meantime, it often helps to use digestive enzymes and if you have low stomach acid (you need it to digest B12, etc.), you might need HCI supplementation. I'm not for supplments in general, but those two plus probiotics (acidophilous) for a wee spell, and hopefully you can get back on track.

(For me, too much sugar makes me tired; too heavy of food makes me tired; and sometimes eating anything would make me tired - this could mean that your digestion is difficult, so it is taking your energy.)

Good luck.

Your suspicion of a yeast allergy is justified if you are sensitive to MSG, since yeast does have glutamic acid. Have you tried baking powder risen bread, muffins, biscuits, etc? What's the brand of bread you are eating? Some are subject to CC. What are the ingredients in the bread?

I've read some jellies/jams can have gluten, so it's probably a good idea to double-check.

Try the bread without the jelly, and see what happens. Try the jelly by itself too, if you're uncertain. You could also make your own sugar-free jelly, using Stevia.

If you think the issue may be from yeast Ener-g does make a yeast free bread. It has to be microwaved or toasted to be anywhere near palatable but it would be a bead option if yeast is a problem. There are also Chebe mixes which are gluten and yeast free.

    I have ataxia and for me it is a feeling like walking on a ship that is in a high sea. I had ataxia since childhood and needed canes by the time I was diagnosed. Over 40 years later... Ataxia has pretty much resoved but I did need to get physical therapy to walk normally. I don't however feel dizzy thankfully. If the dizzy feeling sticks around after your other gluten symptoms resolve it might be a good idea to see an ear doctor just to be on the safe side. Sometimes our body gets so busy fighti
    Corn would not make DH flare unless it was either CC'd in processing or was contaminated through your prep and cooking process. For example grilling the corn on a grill that had gluten prepared on it previously or washing it in a colander that had pasta drained previously.  IMHO Squirmy is spot on. Give yourself some time to heal on the gluten free diet and avoid HIGH iodine sources like iodized salt, seaweed and seafood. The bit of natural iodine in veggies and fruits shouldn't be an issue. If
CyclingLady, you make a good point about all the sugars in fruit juices.  I was not intending to drink a steady stream of them, just maybe a small glass of orange or grape juice once a day, for example.  But I agree with you that, particularly nowadays, far too many people drink FAR too many sugary beverages!    The way I see both kids and adults nowadays sucking down the pop, in particular, is downright creepy --- when I was a kid, that was maybe a once-a-week treat for us, and not a Super-Mega
