Sores In My Nose
0

7 posts in this topic

I just received my Dx last week and have been gluten-free for 7 days . . . thankfully, the pain in my gut has subsided.  However, i noticed one of the symptoms of celiac is mouth sores.  I don't have these, but i have been having chronic sores in my nose for months.  Does anyone else have this?  Do these issues resolve themselves as the body heals?  In the meantime, how do you treat?

I used to have those when I was eating gluten. I never even thought about it being gluten connected, and I never even consciously noticed that they have gone away now, but they have. I had issues with mouth sores AFTER going gluten-free for a while. Those have stopped now too. I would say just give it time.

Like bartfull, I get mouth sores more often than the nose ones... but I do get them once in a while.  I'm not sure if they were from celiac or something else though... it's one of those really common symptoms it seems.

It's my understanding that a person absorbes 70% of your fluid intake in your small intestines.  If the intestines are damaged..no absorption.  Hydrate yourself as much as possible, and in time, you may feel better. ;)

Nose is lined with mucous membrane, makes sense to me that it could be celiac connected. I have issues with mouth sores. I think a lot of my issues are from vitamin deficiencies, but I also had what I think was a gluten reaction and my mouth was immediately burny, like I had small sores over it and then decided to swish lemon juice around, when I ate the food.

Look into all the vitamin deficiencies that cause mouth sores, (I think that's most of them...) dose up on them for awhile and see if it gets better. And the usual, make sure you're not ingesting gluten where you think it isn't.

keep an eye on it.  The human nose is a really "dirty" spot.  make sure they don't get infected.

Thank you all for your responses.  I had to go to the dr. yesterday because I have the respiratory crud.  I mentioned the sores in my nose to her and she said they could be celiac-related.  She told me to use neosporin just inside the nostril, which I am starting.  I am a bit anxious to see what the antibiotic she prescribed does to my tummy over the course of treatment.  It seems that anything that will affect a person's tummy affects mine way more intensely . . .

    • Most New Celiac Patients Show Normal Bone Density
      Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease. View the full article
    • Kidney disease question
      Hi all,   I don't know whether kidney disease is celiac related or not but hopefully someone here can advise.
      I recently had a general blood test as I'd been feeling unwell. I think I've been glutened tbh but I also felt lethargic and out of sorts. I asked for thyroid and other levels to be checked. Frustratingly they didnt run the TTG - something I'm really down about. Anyway, The doctor looked at my test results and told me (via the receptionist) there was nothing to worry about. Given past experiences I requested a paper copy of the results and I found the following under the renal profile section:

      Renal profile 142 (135-145)
      Serum Sodium 4.7 (3.5 5.3)
      Serum potassium 5.5 (2.5 - 7.5)
      Serum urea 93 (62 - 120)
      Serum creatinine 93 (62 - 120)
      GFR 77ml/min/1.73m^2 - STAGE 2: CKD only if other evidence of renal damage

      The doctor is presumably happy with this but I'm a little concerned. Should I ask for a doctors appointment and perhaps a urine test? Is the GFR result on its own not sufficient reason to investigate further? 
      Many thanks for any advice you can offer

      So I just got diagnosed with celiacs and I felt like after all the testing and stuff I would finally get the information my fiancé and I so badly needed about what is wrong with me, but the doctor came in the room at our appt and spent about 15 minutes with us talking a little bit about cross contamination, then said I need to avoid gluten like i would arsenic then sent us on our way! So I guess I am looking for some good tips and information about what is really wrong with me! I know own it's an auto immune disease. I just feel scares because I am so uneducated about it and it's such a big change. I just want to know what to do and do it right so I feel better!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
