Ok, I guess this is a question for the ladies here...

Anyone notice that eating gluten-free effects PMS? I've only been gluten-free for maybe 6 weeks now, but I had been having bad PMS before and this month I had no problems at all! Could it be related? If so, my hubby will sure be happy :lol: I didn't have any PMS symptoms until 3 years ago, when the other symptoms of celiac disease started to get bad. Maybe the two are somehow connected...or maybe I'm just hoping that it's another positive side effect of the gluten-free diet! Also, my face used to break out every month and now it's cleared up almost entirely! Anyone else?

When my early teen daughter has gotten into something, she becomes this PMS monster. Mine leveled out after going gluten-free, though it took longer than a few weeks. To the one who is still having problems, are you sure you aren't ingesting something hidden? Might want to recheck some labels and especially your soaps and such. The breakouts I have decided are hopeless. My skin gets much better then it breaks out again. Only thing I can figure is an accidental ingestion. The only time I know I got into something, it took six months for the breakout to completely clear.

I know I am not ingesting any gluten. It's nothing out of the normal and probably all enhanced from the stresses of classes! Also, my periods were a little wacky when I started glutenfree but after a few months got back on track. Which could explain a lot.

I had a hysterectomy in 2001..I still have my ovaries though.

I still get one pimple on my chin every month, and I get real teary and sensitive too. it does seem to be worse at the same time each month.

Nothing seems to have changed for me. I might add that there's a lot of stress and tention in my life in connection with my grown children. :(

Glad that some of you noticed a difference after going gluten-free! I'm hoping that the next go-around will be as easy as last time. I had never had PMS before but in the last 3 years (when my other symptoms had gotten bad) I had been having it increasingly worse.

I'm heading into early menopause, so I am having trouble telling the PMS swings from the perimenopausal swings. I want it all to be over!!

This is a really cool thought. I swear it seems everything is connected to celiac disease does'nt it? I never had any real pimple problems not even as a kid, but I contantly had rashes around my mouth and all aver my neck. It looked like pimples but were'nt, it was itchy and burning. I would also get small exema patches around my nose and mouth. Dermatologists never knew what it was. <_< As soon as I went gluten-free it all went away. (of course) My skin is gorgeous now! :D

I never thought about it but I guess the PMS is better too.

I have a 21 year old daughter who is also a celiac. Her skin is also much better. She would also get the same rash which is now gone and her pimple breakouts are better too. I don't think other PMS problems are changed for her though. :( oh well

Wendy ^_^

    • After this post I will leave the subject of night blindness to others. Thanks to those who have offered suggestions and to Scott Adams for creating the forum. It is a fine website and I also like the review articles by Jefferson Adams.  I have suffered from patchy night blindness in the summer only for the last 8 years. The winter reprieve is now less complete but I was more or less free by the end of October 2016 and it started again in March 2017. A description of the scotomas was posted on July 4 2015 and the picture shows at the top the L and R eye scotomas on June 25 2017 at 4 a.m. Summer time, and below as they diminish just before dawn. The only problem they cause is reading the time at night. So far they are unexplained and still appear to be unique, though notme! GottaSki and Solandra all mention night vision troubles. I found a paper by Daniel Organisciak Ph.D:  Retinal Light Damage [2010] in which he mentions that experimental damage to the rodent retina by bright light affects the night vision rods particularly in the upper hemisphere of the eye = lower visual field, spares the periphery and may have fairly sharp boundaries. This sounds rather like my scotomas! I went through records to see if they were smaller after a cloudy day but there was no clear relationship. Topcon fundus photos etc today suggested that my eyes were normal for age. There must be someone out there with similar symptoms who has not noticed them!  
    • G'day and welcome Going gluten free helped but it didn't get rid of the SD. The best shampoo was Nizoral due to the Ketonacazole active ingredient. I also find dairy, especially milk is really not good for my skin. Check this thread out too: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/75943-seborrheic-dermatitis/#comment-977173  
    • I am always snacking on nuts, seeds, almond butter, and protein shakes, full fat, and high fiber foods help you stay full longer. I use vegan protein powders like NutraKey V-pro , MRM veggie elite , etc so no issues and dairy free. PS if you ever get those crazy random cravings or need foods I complied a comprehensive list of gluten-free food alternatives and where to get gluten free foods https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I discovered omelettes for breakfast after I went on the diet. It gave me a chance to incorporate more vegetables by stirfrying them first and using them as a filling. A 2 egg omelette with spinach, peppers and mushroom filling sets me up for the day and because of the protein in the eggs I didn't 'crash' at 11am and start snacking.  I switch the fillings each day, onions, avocados, kale, bacon etc. so it doesn't get boring. 
    • Hi!  Skin problems often are related to vitamin deficiencies.   http://www.podiatrytoday.com/when-vitamin-and-nutritional-deficiencies-cause-skin-and-nail-changes I found this article helpful.   Pellagra is a deficiency in niacin.  One symptom is a rash when exposed to sunlight.  You might be nutrient deficient.  A good B complex vitamin may help.
