So Sleepy!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

ok so it's almost been a week on the gluten free diet from Celiac disease!!!! I made it!!! I definitely had my downfalls but I'm finding a ton of really yummy receipes and my boyfriend has no idea that they are gluten free!!!!!

ok so now that that's out of my system...I have been so exhausted I get about 73.5-8 hours if I'm lucky but still feel exhasuted in the morning. I feel like I could sleep for days at this point. Any ideas on what I could do (other than calling off work and sleeping for days) to boost my energy level up and quit feeling so tired??? I feel like I'm missing out on so much!

Thanks friends!! God bless!

Congrats on getting through your first week!

Regarding being so tired...could be gluten withdrawal. Could be you aren't eating enough. Could be your vitamin levels. Could be a lot of things!

Did you get your vitamin levels checked after the Celiac Diagnosis? Low levels can cause tiredness.

What are you eating? I found that I had to really increase my protein intake in order to feel like I had some energy. Also had to eat several small meals throughout the day versus 3 meals a day. Skip the gluten-free replacement foods and stick to whole natural foods like meat, fish, eggs, nuts, beans, rice, fruit, veg, dairy if you can tolerate it, etc.

Could you still be getting trace amounts of gluten? Do you have a shared kitchen? Have you replaced your toaster, colander, scratched pans, etc? Checked your medicines (assuming you take any) for gluten? Toothpaste, mouthwash, etc?

Do you feel better after eating? Worse? The same? Are you sleeping well at night? Are you getting some exercise? Even just a short walk might help -- on mornings when I am dragging I find that taking the dog out for a walk often perks me up. I just need to get moving!

Like I said, it could be many things that are making you tired...hopefully it clears up soon!
