Does anyone else find eating wheat causes terrible fatigue?

I have done every celiac test possible. I am not celiac. But wheat does affect my psoriasis. If I eat it my eczema and psoriasis flare so I tend not to. But occasionally I have and every time, I develop fatigue within a few hours for about 72 hours.

  1. Hi , thanks so much for posting this question. While I hope you hear back from our community on their personal experiences, I am hoping I can help. I am sending you over two articles- one from our advocate and another from our community member about their experience with wheat and fatigue. Please reach out if there is anything else we can do to help.

    1. I have came to the same conclusion that wheat causes me to flare with both my PsA as well as psoriasis. I have gone on the gluten free/AIP diet route and feel better when I stick with it. If I have wheat usually the next few days to a week I am flared and feeling very fatigued.

      1. Hi , thank you for your question! I wanted to let you know that I shared your question with our community members over on Facebook to get their experiences with wheat and fatigue.

        1. I actually was in the same boat...for years, I thought I was lactose and gluten intolerant..and have had several tests that all said I was not either! But I was still not convinced - until recently when I took a food sensitivity test and found out, 19 out of 96 foods they tested cause inflammation in my body ( blood test for IgG levels.) Most of the foods were a staple in my daily diet and foods that were considered healthy. If you are interested, I'd be happy to share the company that I used - it's a test you can do at home and send in. Good luck!

          1. Hi. Sorry to take so long to reply...I used Everlywell to do the food sensitivity testing. They do many other tests too. Good luck!

          2. Just checking to see if you just got my previous post?
