Gluten-Related Neurologic Symptoms In Children

Posted by jebby, 16 May 2014 - * * * * * · 1,382 views

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...


Gluten Intolerance Can Actually Be Subclinical Celiac Disease

Posted by jebby, 30 April 2014 - - - - - - · 651 views

I think most of us have met people who have symptoms of celiac disease, but when tested, are told that their celiac antibody blood tests and biopsy results are negative (normal). Some of these people are labeled “gluten intolerant” or “gluten sensitive” by their doctors, others are told they may have “early” celiac disease, or “pre” celiac disease, and t...


Celiac Disease Can Be A Pain In The Joint

Posted by jebby, 23 February 2014 - - - - - - · 1,069 views

Celiac Disease Can Be A Pain In The Joint Unexplained joint pains (arthralgias) were one of the main symptoms that I dealt with prior to my celiac diagnosis. Throughout my twenties I had pain and stiffness in my fingers, knees and ankles that would come and go with no apparent explanation. I ran track for part of high school and continued to run for fitness during college, but shortly after gradu...

Celiac Disease In Children Drs. Guandalini and Assiri have written a summary of pediatric celiac disease that was published in the online edition of the journal JAMA Pediatrics last week. In this post I will share some of the highlights of their review article.

Although the overall prevalence of celiac disease is 1% in the pediatric population, only 10-15% of children with celiac...

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome Madness.... 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...

I was thrilled to come across a paper about non-celiac gluten sensitivity in children in the Journal of Pediatrics, one of the main pediatric journals. Many of my pediatrician colleagues read this journal on a regular basis. In this article, a group of Italian researchers has described the symptoms and lab test results in 15 children with gluten sensitivi...

The second to last session on day one of the 2013 International Celiac Disease Symposium (ICDS) was a talk entitled, “Melting the Celiac Iceberg-potential, latent, silent: to treat or not to treat?” I was very confused about these terms when I first came across them in the Celiac medical and research literature a few years ago.
“Silent” Celiac Disease...

My, Oh My, Peripheral Neuropathy

Posted by jebby, 18 September 2013 - - - - - - · 2,116 views

I spent a good chunk of last Christmas Eve in an MRI scanner, getting my spine analyzed for the white matter lesions of multiple sclerosis (MS). Mike, the MRI technician, piped George Winston’s “December” celiac disease through my MRI headphones, but the music did little to drown out the loud hammering sounds of the MRI and the thoughts that were racing i...
