Why do I feel tired after eating Wheat/Gluten foods?

Question by =): Why do I feel tired after eating Wheat/Gluten foods?
I have been tested for celiac, and the results were negative. So I was still wondering why I feel tired after consuming gluten foods. My fatique kicks in at around 5 mins after consumption of wheat. I also get symptoms like abdominal swelling and gas.

Could Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance possibly make you feel tired, after consuming wheat? Or is this all psychological?

Best answer:

Answer by Alex
It doesn’t have to be a celiac problem. If you complain of gas and abdominal swelling and FATIGUE after eating a bread or high carb food product, then it sounds like it could be a yeast overgrowth in your body.

Or it could be all in your head, regardless, you should try some Probiotics, they helped me loads with your issues.

If you have a gluten sensitivity or celiac, how long after eating gluten would you react?

Question by Jimmy Hendrix: If you have a gluten sensitivity or celiac, how long after eating gluten would you react?
I get stomach grumbling and I think it’s from gluten, I want to know how long after you eat something with gluten would it take to react and how long would it last?

Best answer:

Answer by Shauna

It depends greatly on the individual.

Some people get bloating and/or stomach/bowel problems 24-48 hours after they ingest gluten. Some get tummy trouble as soon as it hits the stomach. Some get stomach pain, some get vertigo, some get vomiting, some get joint pain and brain fog. I am a celiac who gets a neurological response within 2 minutes of ingesting gluten, which makes my words slur and knocks me down with vertigo. Truly, it can be a surprising number of reactions.

It can last a few days or weeks, depending on how much gluten was eaten and how quickly a person’s body can heal.

You can get a blood test for celiac disease, though, which might be able to help. Gluten intolerance, you just have to do an elimination diet. However, once you start the elimination diet, the celiac disease test will be negative, so it’s a good idea to get that before starting the diet, if possible.

Q&A: Do Celiacs always feel bad (stomach, GI issues) after eating gluten everytime?

Question by Rumbly: Do Celiacs always feel bad (stomach, GI issues) after eating gluten everytime?
If yes, was this only since you were diagnosed and went gluten-free? Or did this happen before you realized you had celiac?

Best answer:

Answer by tiggsy
Once they have been following the gluten free diet for a number of months, and the lesions have had a chance to heal, there should not be any issues after eating, unless the food contained gluten.

Celiacs who have been “glutened” will feel bad after eating. This isn’t particularly unusual – although it is dangerous – especially if they eat out at a restaurant or even go to a friend’s house for dinner.

Feeling bad after eating gluten is often the symptom that prompts a visit to the doctor, and eventual diagnosis of celiac disease.

Q&A: My 6 yr old daughter gets eczema or itchy hand after eating bread?

Question by Joe Rubin: My 6 yr old daughter gets eczema or itchy hand after eating bread?
Hi all,
My daughter has an itchy hand every time I give her bread or some things with gluten. However a blood test showed she does NOT have celiac disease where one can not tolerate or there is intolerance to gluten.
What can this be and what would you do? THANKS

Best answer:

Answer by Shauna

There are a lot of common ingredients in bread that she could be reacting to. Probably worth an allergy test and a food journal with an elimination diet, including to wheat.

However, re: the celiac test – you may not want to discount celiac disease completely, if allergy tests don’t turn up anything. There is about a 20% false negative rate with the blood tests for celiac disease, and that’s in adults. With children, it’s even higher. Basically, it’s because the test itself is not actually FOR celiac disease. It detects various antibodies and such that our bodies make in response to gluten if we HAVE celiac disease and it is active, although a few other conditions can cause the same jump in antibodies.

However, we make more antibodies if we have severely damaged intestines. In practice, a person with patchy internal damage tends to have much lower levels of these antibodies in the blood and may test negative to for celiac disease, even though they have the disease. The reason that children have a higher false negative rate is because they tend to have patchy damage more than adults do. :-/

It’s often worthwhile getting a copy of the results yourself, to check it yourself and see what they are, especially in case you ever get her tested again in the future, so you can see if her levels remain the same or increase (people with celiac disease in the family, for example, should get tested at least every 5 years, because the disease can trigger at any time of life).

There is also something known as non-celiac gluten intolerance. This was only proven to exist in studies about 1 1/2 years ago, so there is no test for it, very little known about it, etc… The only thing that is done is a person goes on a gluten free diet and checks health to see how it affects you, or doesn’t. Some non-celiacs with this seem to be just as sensitive as a celiac is to gluten, only with different reactions.

Does your little one react to malt, as well? That is also gluten, so if she reacts to a malted milkshake with itching just like with bread, that’s a good clue that gluten could be involved. But if she doesn’t, that may help you narrow down to something else, like the wheat alone.

How long after eating gluten does a rash occur when you have Dermatitis Herpetiformis (Celiac of the Skin)?

Question by Koalamy: How long after eating gluten does a rash occur when you have Dermatitis Herpetiformis (Celiac of the Skin)?

Looking more for information as to how long after eating gluten before rash appears – I assume it’s not as quick as the GI issues but not sure. I don’t eat gluten – but have had restaurant mishap.

Answer by Adrianna
It usually lasts 1-2 weeks, but it depends on your gluten intake. The more cautious you are with your diet, the sooner it will disappear.

Q&A: Has any other Celiac had major diarrhea problems after exposure to air borne wheat?

Question by Angela W: Has any other Celiac had major diarrhea problems after exposure to air borne wheat?
I was taking a Culinary class and had air borne exposure for about
8 weeks of 2 days a week to wheat flour (cake, all purpose) and came down with a bad case of diarrhea for over 5 days, the doctor can’t tell me why, could it be the Celiac disease in the small intestines causing it?

Best answer:

Answer by Anama
Yes, actually it can be if that is your typical reaction to being glutened. If it goes in your nose and then is removed naturally (which means it drips down the back of your nose and then you swallow it), then yes, you can actually get a gluten reaction that way. I have a friend who won’t even go into a local specialty grocery store on certain days because of the flour flying around when they are baking!
Remember, it is only 20 parts per million that renders things no longer gluten free, so based on that, then yep, it could have been the airborne wheat flour. Try to stay totally away from that stuff, okay?

Also, re-check everything you have eaten lately. Sometimes companies throw us a curve and change ingredients or processing plants without letting us know and then we all suffer! I usually go back on whole foods when that happens (a glutening) and slowly add things back in to find out which “gf” food I am eating really isn’t.

Hope you feel better soon!

Just got diagnosed with celiac disease. How long will it take to feel energetic again after giving up gluten?

Question by H M: Just got diagnosed with celiac disease. How long will it take to feel energetic again after giving up gluten?
Doc just told me I have celiac disease and said to cut out gluten products. He said that I would notice I’m much more energetic and I’d feel a lot better after a while. I’m a healthy and active 23-year-old guy. Anybody know how long it could take to actually start gaining weight and feeling better like the doc said?

Best answer:

Answer by Yahnswers Guru
It’ll take time, and the duration would depend on how much gluten has affected your system. But it’ll probably be better in a few weeks.

With celiac, how long after not eating gluten will I start to feel better?

Question by addie: With celiac, how long after not eating gluten will I start to feel better?
I was diagnosed with celiac last week. I stopped eating gluten right away. How long does it take for everything that was making me feel bad to get out of my system? And, does anyone have any advice. This seems like such a drag. Thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by Glutenfreegirl
Hi! It can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks (or longer!) to really see improvement, but that varies depending on your age (the younger u are when diagnosed, the better) and how true u are getting gluten out. Even many experienced Celiacs accidentally eat gluten often and its very tricky to get it all out. Please feel free to email me for further help but I think you’ll find these sites and books helpful for a newbie Celiac! 🙂
