Has Anyone Had Raynauds Syndrome Improve On Gluten Free Diet?

I recently found out that I have Raynauds.  Is it related to celiac?  Also does it improve with a gluten free diet?

I wondered about this as my Mum has Raynauds and although I've never seen a GP about it my circulation was really bad before I went gluten-free. Happy to say it's improved considerably :) hope yours does too!

Yes, Diana, I have Reynaud's and it has improved tremendously on the gluten-free diet.  My fingers used to blanch and turn white when exposed to the cold and now, I can tolerate the cold much, much better.  They do not turn white and numb nearly as much as they used to and it's only the very fingertips that are affected.  I can also reach into the freezer section and grab frozen items without gloves!   :)

 

Reduce the inflammation in your body, over time, and other AI diseases improve.

Hi Diana. I have had the same experience as Gemini, my Raynaud's has virtually disappeared since going gluten-free in 2010.

I think there is hope for me, for though I feel really good, I still feel I am in transition at 18 months gluten free.  One of my daughters has raynaud's  too, so the logical question is whether this might be a sign of celiac for my family.  I see everything as symptoms though, and my family sees nothing as symptoms.  Strange deal for a person with 2 copies of celiac genes!

I have mild Raynauds with my lupus.  It seems to be one of the things that improve when I just eat more healthy in general, but I did not notice a difference after going gluten-free.

hey doc, I was wondering recently, is Raynaud's centrally controlled? ie, breath in cold air, peripheral circ. shuts down?  maybe we should ask Dr H if he sees it in his ataxia patients??

yeah, actually! I didn't notice until now, but since going gluten free a year ago, I haven't had my fingers turn white once! which totally never happens, it used to happen like all the time

    • I had not heard that. What I had heard is that folic acid supplementation can mask B12 deficiency. Feenejya suggested getting tested for H Pylori, not a bad idea. What you're going through sounds awful, I'm so sorry you're going through this. Please stay in touch, and do take care because chronic diarrhea can present some complications of its own, as you know. Try to replenish fluids and electrolytes.
    • There is also a celiac center at UCLA - Dr Weiss
    • mnburis, I'm concerned about your symptoms, especially the diarrhea being so frequent.  I experienced pellagra after prolonged diarrhea.   The symptoms are diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (B 3).  With your vitamin D and B 12 already diagnosed as low, you're very likely to be low in all the other vitamins and minerals as well.  The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  The B vitamins all work together.  All should be supplemented if one is low.  Large doses of B 12 by itself can cause folate deficiency anemia if you're low in folate (B 9) already.  Ask your doctor about other vitamin deficiencies.  The easy ones to test for are D and B12.  Tell your doctor how severe your diarrhea is.  Ask about pellagra.  Here's some more information. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pellagra/ I really hope this helps.  
    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further.
