Sweating While Eating?
0

11 posts in this topic

I know for a fact I have not eaten gluten. I have tested my blood sugar and they are slightly above normal. Everytime I eat anything, not just spicy or hot things, I sweat around my hairline, forehead, T-zone and the back of my neck. I have had severe stomach pain lately, but I do not sweat except at night and when I eat. What is up with this?

I have a friend who sweats when he eats certain foods, like vinegar or spicey things.

Are you going through the change of life? My wife, who is, sweats at the drop of a hat. Of course, she comes from a family of heavy sweaters but it has gotten worse in middle age. We have a hard time a agreeing on how many covers to put on the bed, where to set the house thermostat at, and whether or not we need to have the air conditioning in the car on. When we were young and first married, it was exactly the opposite: she was always chilled when I was warm or comfortable.

I oddly think I sweat more now that I'm gluten free. Could just be the heat waves though.

I know over summer, when it gets hot, and I eat, sometimes I end up sweating, especially with the evening meal. It is not summer here yet, so I won't be able to tell whether being gluten free I will sweat more or less. I know after loosing a bit of weight, the heat does not get to me as much, so I think my sweating was just weight related and eating too much.

Actually it is a medical condition called Gustatory sweating, a collegue of my husband has it - thats' the only reason I know the medical name for it.

Gustatory sweating: Sweating on the forehead, face, scalp, and neck occurring soon after ingesting food. Some gustatory sweating is normal after eating hot, spicy foods. Otherwise, gustatory sweating is most commonly a result of damage to a nerve that goes to the parotid gland, the large salivary gland in the cheek. In this setting, referred to as Frey syndrome, the sweating is usually on one side of the head. Gustatory sweating is also a rare complication of diabetes mellitus. In this case sweating may occur on both sides of the head, with mild or substantial severity.

Thank you so very much for that piece of information. I looked it up and the information was extremely helpful. Is it the pain of trying to digest food that triggers it or is it simply the type of food? Does this have to do with the Celiac or Diabetes? Thanks again, very helpful.

I have the opposite problem, eating gives me chills. It seems to be diminishing now that I'm gluten-free though... unless that's just because it's so hot now!

But now that I think of it, hot tea makes me perspire, & it's not just the heat, because coffee doesn't...

It likely has more to do wth the diabetes. This is a link to an article specific to diabetic gustatory sweating:

EDIT - OK, not sure why the link doesnt work... I have copied and posted the abstract, you can search using the terms: diabetic gustatory sweating to bring up a number of articles

Diabetic Gustatory Sweating

from Southern Medical Journal

Dwight I. Blair, MD, Julius Sagel, MD, Ian Taylor, MD

Abstract and Introduction

Abstract

Gustatory sweating is a potential manifestation of autonomic dysfunction in diabetes. This syndrome is seen in long-standing diabetes and is associated with nephropathy, peripheral neuropathy, and other signs of dysautonomia. Symptoms of profuse head and neck diaphoresis with eating may suggest this clinical diagnosis. We present a patient who had complicated diabetes with symptoms of gustatory sweating and other evidence of dysautonomia. Diagnosis and treatment possibilities are discussed, with a review of the literature and an emphasis on bedside testing.

Introduction

Gustatory sweating is a known manifestation of autonomic dysfunction in diabetes mellitus.[1-5] This syndrome is not only symptomatically disturbing to affected people, but also can affect glycemic control.[1] Recognition of gustatory sweating is significant in that it provides an explanation for the symptoms, indicates possible concurrent diabetic complications, and allows the consideration of specific treatment modalities. Given the nonspecific diagnosis of diabetic gustatory sweating, familiarity with this entity and other manifestations of autonomic dysfunction can help to elucidate the appropriate clinical context.

Gustatory sweating can occur in any individual who has damage to the nerves near the parotid gland (the article explains which nerves better than I can). The damage can be a result of surgery or from neuropathy resulting from (MS, pernicous anemia, diabetes to name only a few)... any disease that can cause nerve issues.

    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
