This happens to my eyes only - sure way to tell when I've ingested something I shoudn't have. For me this also includes nuts, dairy, soy, and unorganic peanuts - go figure!!!

My head usually looks AND feels like one of those balloons in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. LOL! Literally, I feel like I have a head cold.

When this happens, glass after glass of water is your best cure. I typically don't add ice as it's easier for me to guzzle when it's not too cold.

Knock on wood... I haven't had that experience in months.

Hi Jenny!

Yes, absolutely you can get a puffy face from being glutened (and other puffy stuff!) I went to a wedding a few weeks ago and spent the better part of it accidentally glutening myself despite my best efforts. Now their are all these family pictures of me looking like a whale floating around on facebook! My tummy is all big...I totally wore the wrong dress for how big my tummy was....I think I thought it had gone down quite a bit, and it had, but it was still big... ugh! Anyway, when you get puffy, ride it out. Hydrate, eat clean etc... And STAY AWAY from CAMERAS! LOL. The last thing you want it your glutened puffy face and body immortalized on film! :ph34r:

I am SO happy I came across your post. I am 26 y/o and have been waking up with a very puffy face/swollen eyelids since I was about 16. It has always bothered me SO much. In April, I found out that I have Celiac Disease. I have started a gluten-free diet, and my puffy eyes/face in the morning (puffy is an understatement, they are so swollen) has drastically improved. Some days they are almost gone. But, it feels like every time I go out to dinner, I wake up with a swollen face/eyes again and start the process all over again. How long does it take for your morning swelling to go away after being glutened? I feel like it takes me about 2 weeks, not sure if thats normal, but I am new at all of this. Thank you for your post. It helps to know other people have the same issues. Do you think the swelling will ever stop completely? Has it for anyone else? Thank again!

I get puffy eyes, not so much face.

It's really weird too because sometimes it's so severe that it feel like my eyelid gets "stuck" to my eye brow area. LOL

But yes, I get puffy eyes, and some tingling in my face.

I get puffy eyes from traces of gluten and from soy.

It is the way I know for sure something wrong got into me.

I hate that symptom.

vitaminc deficiencies can also cause it.

-But I would say yes to glutened body equals puffy face...and sometimes feet. Lasts way too long for me...several days to weeks.

    • Well, I would strongly recommend seeing a doctor (maybe an endo if your PCP is not thyroid savvy, but I have always used my PCP).   Are you sure you had the hypo-related thyroid antibodies tests (3 of them)?     It looks like you are hypothyroid.  You probably need thyroid replacement, but I am not a doctor!    Thyroid replacement will help you feel better.  My TSH is best at around a 1.  Anything over a 5 and I am wearing flannel PJ's and napping.  Ask for a physical examination for your thyroid to check for nodules and enlargement too.  You can be hypo, but not have Hashi's.  Get that endo appointment, if you can.    
    • On a gluten-free diet, my low iron resolved within months with supplementation.    I would ask your doctor to re-check your ferritin levels and antibodies at the three month mark since you can not judge by symptoms.  I would also ask for a bone scan.  I fractured two vertebrae doing NOTHING two months into my celiac disease diagnosis.  Found out I had osteoporosis.   I would think that if you were dairy intolerant, you would experience all the classic symptoms of gas, bloating, etc.  If you are not, I would not worry about dairy.  Not all celiacs are dairy intolerant.   Go eat some cheese!   Follow-up testing recommendations: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/
    • Elk is gluten free like all unprocessed meat.  Okay, everyone said that, but extra validation never hurt.    You should ask who butchered it though.    Lots of my family members hunt (yes, they work and are dedicated to the National/Federal Parks and Land, but culling herds is a necessity in time of drought and over population).  Their butcher is local and does not use gluten in their seasonings (e.g. Sausage).  So ask to be safe.  
    • Studies have shown that saturated fats are not unhealthy and are an important part of our diet for hormonal health, don't avoid fats only because they are saturated because they are safe and usually healthy.
    • Thx so much Cycling lady, I appreciate your feedback!. My issue is that I don't have GI issues, just weight loss and low iron. I understand low iron takes ages to fix (I'm on prescription iron) What do you mean each person has to determine what is safe or not. How can I tell? I drank the beer initially and no symptoms but I'm sure my Villi are suffering if this beer isn't good for me. I have stopped drinking it, but concerned about other things. This is one tough disease. People ask me if I'm dairy intolerant, how do I know? I'm worrying about what I don"t know.
