Are Body Temperature Issues Related To Gluten Intolerance Or Celiac?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have problems at night with waking up really hot, and it is difficult to cool off. I'm fine when I go to sleep...I can't use lighter blankets, or I'll be too cold when I try to fall asleep. But I frequently wake up a few hours into the night feeling hot. It isn't night sweats, because I don't get sweaty. I just feel extremly warm.

Could this be a symptom related to gluten intolerance or celiac? Does anyone else have this problem, and how quickly did it go away when you went gluten-free?

I've been gluten-free for two weeks. I've noticed an improvement in "IBS" symptoms, but no other changes yet.

I actually thought I was pre-menopausal because of this. I used to wake-up during the night and have to change my bedclothes. They were soaking wet! I have not had that happen to me in over a year. I'm not sure if it is because of celiac but, I hope the same happens for you when you are gluten-free for a while.

I used to have night sweats, before gluten-free and for a while after, but they stopped a while back. I think they can be related to thyroid issues and possibly diabetes also. And fever of course.

I've been gluten-free for two weeks. I've noticed an improvement in "IBS" symptoms, but no other changes yet.

I had random fevers for over a year, especially at night, and didn't usually sweat either. Now, I get bad chills anytime. I've had several minor infections that may or may not have caused them. I never did actually take my temp, so i don't know if they were true fevers or not. When my symptoms get bad, i go from chills to the fever again. A point, I am gluten free for two months, but have no diagnosis but IBS, gastritis, and peripheral neuropathy. the fever part seemed to diminish after being gluten free (the first time) for about six weeks.

I have hot/cold issues as well. In doing more research and talking with my doc, he claims that mine is linked to my Hashimoto's Disease (Thyroid). Since, the thyroid actually is the regulator of body temp, if it doesn't work properly it can cause random cold or heat spells. Mine is usually cold, but I do get hot at random. I have ruled out menopause as I am only 30, so that wouldn't make a hole lota sense for me. :D

Good luck with it. Sucks, but hopefully over time when your body finds it's "happy" place it might adjust itself accordingly.

I struggle with night temperatures too. For me it's thyroid and Lyme but I bet as you heal your body will readjust.

When I got diagnosed with celiac my average body temp was 93! Yet, I would be hot after as little as 10 minutes n bed.

It's really frustrating, but give it some time. If it doesn't get better see your doctor.

I had to read this, as I have odd temperature issues in the last couple of years as well.

During the day, I am always too warm. I keep my house about 60 degrees and can finally wear a long-sleeved shirt, but in normal houses (70*) I need tank-tops.

However, at night I have to PILE on the blankets to the point that I can barely move, because otherwise I freeze. My alarm goes off in the morning, and I can lay there about 3 minutes before it's like someone turned on my thermostat and I have to kick off all of them. My normal body temperature is in the high 96* range, and is gradually getting lower every few months.

I never thought this could be related to celiac, and I have not yet gone gluten-free, so I can't tell you more. I have no confirmed diagnosis yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm heading down the gluten-free path.

I've also heard it could be because of the thyroid. If you decide to get checked, ask them to check the Free T4 and Free T3 instead of just a TSH. For me, my TSH was slightly elevated, but my T3 was really low and the T4 low as well.

Some doctors will only check your TSH level which doesn't show the whole picture.

i'm so glad i found this link. i'm struggling with my 3 kids who are gluten intolerant and i'm pretty darned sure they are temperature sensitive when it comes to sleeping well. when the weather gets warmer outside they sleep at 68... if they sleep at 69 degrees or even 70, all three wake up with the crankiest of all demeanors.... crying, whining, fighting (which they don't usually do if they sleep well). and at 70 they complain that it's too hot. it's very strange to me because both my husband and i sleep find with a range of temps including 70-72 with similar blankets.

does anyone recommend what to do? should i be going to get their thyroid levels checked? would it even help anything?

It might be a good idea to have their thyroid checked. I think soy is another possible cause of heat imbalances. My body was really wacky when I was eating soy.

    • Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY with a shampoo called Nizoral, that it would take the itch away. He also prescribed a Vaseline based salve with a steroid in it. Guess what? It did nothing nor did the shampoo, and the more I washed my hair, the worse it gets. It's like torture, and I just can't stop scratching holes into my scalp. Then they scab over, then itch again. I was almost ready to shave my head, until I found this forum. I knew nothing about celiac disease, sensitivity to gluten... I knew nothing. Just so happened that my daughter found a paper talking about celiac during her visit to her GI yesterday. She brought it home for me, and demanded that I read it!  WHAM- a light come on, and I said to her... That IS what I have. I am going to my GP tomorrow to demand that I be tested for ciliac. I am rather terrified, as I am already a type 1 diabetic and have been on insulin for 52 years! I was blaming my diabetes the whole time. I have had a lower left leg amputation, and the last thing I need is to start getting this ungodly rash on my stump!!! Thank you everyone for all of the useful information you have provided in this blog. Maybe I'm not going to die after all! 😉
    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
