Salivary Gland stone: You may have either an infection of the salivary gland on the right side (submandibular gland) or may be a stone blocking the duct of the gland. It probably swells when you eat and then goes down as the saliva passes the obstruction. See an ENT physician to check your salivary glands.

Can swollen salivary glands be related to overeating?

Not usually.: Over eating combined with a very poor oral hygiene, infected gums, or oral infections, throat infections, ear infections, which can be passed on through salivary ducts to salivary glands can lead to salivary gland infections, & hence the swelling. The other reason can be salivary stones, if the block the ducts. At meal time, when salivary glands produce saliva, the glands swell up.

Is there a connection between celiacs and swollen salivary glands?

Is there a connection between celiacs and swollen salivary glands?

Could be: One of he symptoms with celiac disease is "dry mouth" due to the changes that occur in the composition of the saliva in the gland (see http://www. Medicinaoral.

Is there any connection between celiacs and swollen salivary glands?

Celiac disease: This is an understudied area. Celiac disease has an autoimmune background and increased risk of oral mucosal and dental abnormalities. One study showed that celiacs have a higher chance of developing canker sores. This can cause swollen salivary glands. One other study showed lower chances of salivary cariogenic microflora in celiacs. So this is controversial. Don't forget to rule out sjogren's.
