Gluten And Coffee

I read on numerous sites that those who are gluten sensative or celiac ,a small % have bad reactions to coffee? Does this hold any truth or is it caffeine versus gluten that doesn't match??

If someone has thydroid trouble, coffee will react with their meds making them ineffective. I don't know if they will bother the thyroid directly, even if you aren't on meds but have undiagnosed thyroid trouble, but I know a friend of mine who couldn't tolerate coffee even before she went on meds.

I tell you this because a lot of celiacs have problems with their thyroids, so if coffee bothers you, maybe (MAYBE) that is why.

I couldn't tolerate coffee for awhile after going gluten-free. It aggravated my gut. I now enjoy coffee, but only 1/2 - 1 mug a day vs. the 2-4 mugs daily I used to be addicted to. Green tea was an okay substitute for awhile.

I think it varies from person to person.

I'm NGCI and I have never had a problem with coffee ever (thankfully!). I've quit all caffeine a couple of times for a few weeks in order to try and improve insomnia and this seems to have no effect on GI stuff at all whatsoever (for me anyway)...

I don't think the idea that coffee will interact with thyroid meds and make them ineffective is true, Bart. I have had Hashi's for years and take my thyroid hormone with coffee every morning and I am doing fine. Thyroid numbers are good too, I just had them tested and I have no symptoms of thyroid disease.

Coffee is perfectly safe for Celiacs to drink, unless they are still in the healing stage and coffee bothers their gut. Most can usually go back to drinking it after they have been gluten-free for awhile.There has also been a lot of nonsense about cross-reactivity with coffee and it's just that...nonsense.

You do have to be careful to purchase 100% plain coffee and not blends with other stuff thrown in. Some countries in Europe serve a coffee that has added grain to it....I believe it's barley. My friend from Czech said this was true and you always believe a Czech chick! ;)

The articles I have read say it doesn't interfere with synthroid, but it does with this other med. A friend of mine has Hashi's, and her doctor warned her about coffee.

What's weird is that levothyroxine is synthetic T4, yet it doesn't affect Synthroid? That's what Synthroid is......levothyroxine. Have I misunderstood?

The difference might be that I take Nature-throid, which includes T3. In order to properly absorb Nature-throid and some other natural thyroid meds, you have to chew them a bit and break them up. They are formulated with cellulose and you need to break that down a bit for proper absorption. I only have to wait a half hour before eating anything but apparently, from my experience, the coffee is not affecting things at all.

Tell your friend to switch to Nature-throid...works much better for those with Hashi's! ;) Or at least a T3/T4 combo. Interesting article.......thanks for posting!

    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?
