Does gluten free diet cause salvation?

Hi,I have been following a strict gluten free diet for the past month, although I haven't actually been diagnosed with celiac's it has helped the bloating from which I was suffering. Now I'm suffering horribly from excessive salivation and I find myself grinding my teeth a lot. Are the gluten free diet and the salivation
connected?

I warmly Welcome you!


Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic HCM.


Nonit doesn't look to be interrelated.

Probability:-
May be you are taking some drug/medicine that is affecting your autonomic nervous system. Do you feel some other symptom too??


Ask your treating physician, if you are on some medications to review your status.


Hope it helps. Feel free to consult me directly from my profile if you need further assistance anytime.

Regards!
