The Patient Celiac > The Effects Of Gluten On The Brain And Nervous System

Posted on 23 January 2013 - 08:35 PM

Most of the articles about gluten and celiac disease I’ve came across in the media have focused on symptoms related to digestion, such as abdominal pain and bloating after eating gluten, and damage to the small intestine. The bulk of the gluten-related discussions on the celiac forums I’ve perused concern questions and answers regarding the diagnosis of...

RaeD's Blog > Anemia, Chiropractors And Celiac Disease

Posted on 29 April 2012 - 02:53 PM

Hello Everyone!

I am new to this site! I've read a lot of different blog's on this site and I decided to share my story!
I have struggled with stomach issues for pretty much all of my life. I've had a hiatal hernia for the past 12 years. I have controlled it for the most part, up until recently. I have tried different things...

The Patient Celiac > Gluten-Related Neurologic Symptoms In Children

Posted on 16 May 2014 - 03:44 PM

There is a well-established relationship between celiac disease (and non-celiac gluten sensitivity) and the development of neurologic problems in adults. According to Dr. Marios Hadjivassiliou, a neurologist in the UK who is one of the world’s experts in this area, up to 50% of adults with newly diagnosed celiac disease have signs or symptoms of neurologi...

KCG91's Blog > Three Months In - Blood Test Results

Posted on 31 January 2014 - 02:26 AM

So I collected my blood test results after three months gluten free. When I was diagnosed my ttg IgA was >128u/ml, with 'normal' being <7. Today it is at 22u/ml! Poor doc was a bit confused because for many people this would be high, but obviously for me it's a massive improvement. I wasn't expecting it to be that good, as I live between three non...

The Patient Celiac > Mast Cell Activation Syndrome Madness....

Posted on 05 January 2014 - 08:21 PM

At this time last year I had never heard of mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) and the first time that I heard the name I thought that it was a “made up” disease. Since then I have come to realize that it is a real diagnosis and I have learned a ton about it, including the following:

MCAS is a newly recognized disease of the innate immune system (our b...

The Patient Celiac > Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity

Posted on 11 February 2013 - 05:58 PM

Yes, this is a real diagnosis, and it effects between 6 to 8% of our population, or approximately 18 million people. Many doctors and patients are unaware that it exists. Most of the papers on this topic have only been published in the last 2-3 years. The British Medical Journal published a case study and review of gluten sensitivity in their November 30,...

The Patient Celiac > Yes, It Is "safe" To Raise Non Celiac Kids Gluten Free

Posted on 04 February 2013 - 09:39 PM

I’ve realized that I have not written for almost a week and I think I am okay with this. When I started this blog two months ago, I anticipated being able to post about once a week, so I think I am on track. Between working full-time, running, and trying to squeeze in some sleep, the main reason  that I have not had time is that I have four small...

The Patient Celiac > Eosinophilic Esophagitis And Celiac Disease

Posted on 20 January 2013 - 04:51 PM

Eosinophilic Esophagitis, also known as “EE,” is a gastrointestinal disorder that, like Celiac Disease, seems to be increasing in frequency of diagnosis. I first heard of EE when I was in my pediatric residency. I worked with a Pediatric GI specialist who seemed to diagnose all of his infant patients with gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) with EE. While I...

The Patient Celiac > Celiac Disease And Pregnancy

Posted on 19 January 2013 - 09:20 PM

Although I am pretty sure that I had Celiac Disease for more than two decades before my diagnosis, I was not diagnosed until after my 3rd child was born. Looking back, my diet during my first 3 pregnancies was a gluten-filled nightmare. I am actually glad that I have no idea how sky-high my celiac antibodies probably were while I was pregnant with my oldest...

A Celiac's Journal > Midol Products... Gluten-Free?

Posted on 24 July 2012 - 05:53 PM

I'm thinking not.

Not only an I a celiac but I'm also lactose intolerant. It is ridiculous how sick I get when I have dairy. It feels as if I drank rotten milk or have food poisoning.

So, every time that I get my period, I get that feeling and I always take Midol with no help. If anything, it makes me even more sick to the point where I'm...

The Liberated Kitchen, redux > Going 100% Gluten-Free

Posted on 10 June 2011 - 06:49 AM

Going gluten-free is harder than it looks. The pesky stuff is everywhere! Many people who are intolerant or have a wheat allergy can get away with not really worrying about trace amounts of contamination. But if you are going gluten-free because of an autoimmune problem like celiac disease, it's...

Posted on 14 October 2014 - 03:13 PM

Well... my diarrhea has continued and not improved despite resolution of most of my other celiac symtoms. I'm going in to be tested for microscopic colitis next month. I just want to have a normal phucking bowel movement. It's been soo long I don't even remember what one looks or feels like! Hoping for answers.
