Runny/congested Nose After Eating Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey,

Just wondering...how many of you suffer SEVERE congestion/runny-nose symptoms, almost like coming down with a seasonal "cold", after eating gluten? One of the prime ways I know I've been glutened (or, some other food intolerance for all I know) is that I go through a whole box of kleenex -- easily -- within a 6-8 hour period of time!!

Didn't know if this was an abnormal symptom or not.

Well, I don't get a runny nose, but I do get a lot of post-nasal drip down the back of my throat. Also, I usually experience a sharp pain and tightening in my throat (almost like when a cold virus is first lodging in your throat). All this followed by what I can only describe as a "diaper rash" :rolleyes: and then I KNOW I've been glutened.

Hi, Ive had this for so long i thought it was normal but recently discovered that it can be caused by yeast overgrowth in the ear/nose/throat passages.

For me i believe its related to having a candida issue which i cant get a scientific diagnosis for as its yet another doctor minefield in the UK, but its worth looking into.

I believe in america/ canada its easy to get this checked out.

Interestingly, the first symptoms of yeast overgrowth are gluten sensitivity, leading on to other food sensitivities, which is what happened to me. Ive just had my coeliac dignosis removed after 10 years as it turns out it wasnt that after all.

Im improving on a candida program now.

Hope that helps!

I have post nasal drip, very congested nose and watering eyes and sneezing. It seems like it went up since I am eating gluten free and I am suspecting dairy but I am also looking into candida overgrowth. Now, since I went gluten free, I have much more sugar in my diet and I crave sweet and fried food.
