Sleep Apnea After Being Gluttened
0

3 posts in this topic

Ok, so I was never diagnosed with sleep apnea but I often had problems gasping for air in the night. And my brother has major sleep apnea. I noticed after going gluten free however, this completely stopped happening. Yesterday I ate sauce that I thought was gluten free but turns out had wheat in it. When I tried to fall asleep last night, every time I would just start to drift I would jerk up gasping for air. I have noticed this only happens the night of being gluttened. It boggles my mind...how one causes the other!? :blink:

Oh, I am new to this forum, and trying gluten free for the past weeks, but please explain more. when I figured I had this I tried to stop taking in gluten. was good for a few days and added mustard I thought was gluten free to add some taste to my chicken. when I was done eating it felt like my heart was racing, it was late, went to bed, and every second I though I was about to fall asleep BOOM, weird twitch that woke me before I could sleep even for a second, and heart stared racing. I did not sleep and it was last night, Im hoping this does not last more than a day, almsot scared to eat.

Welcome to the forum Kre8sioN! It is definitly scary when you stop breathing-ecspecially with your heart racing! When you said weird twitch are you referring to not being able to breath or something else?

I haven't really exeprienced a racing heart before but I have heard other people who experience that on this forum. After I went gluten free for about 3 months I accidentally got glutened through communion bread at church. That night, every time I tried to fall asleep-I woke up gasping for air. I didn't pick up on the trend until being gluttened another two times. Each time I kept waking up gasping for air the very same night I was glutened. Then a light bulb went on and I did some researrch and found it could very well be connected.I know gluten is not always the cause of sleep apnea but I believe it is in my case since I don't have a problem when I am gluten free. :)

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
