Yeast Overgrowth Same Symptoms As Celiac

4 posts in this topic

I have all the celiac symptoms. Felt better from eating gluten-free even better when avoiding SUGAR I have just learned. Thought I might have DH on my elbows but its more of a poriasis look. The rash has cleared up more in 1 week from a kidding refined sugar than 1 year gluten-free. Problem is candida creates a gluten intorelance, I get the instant brain fog ect just like celiac. So I don't know if I have celiac which has caused a yeast overgrowth, or a yeast overgrowth resulting In a gluten intorelance. Anyone going through this?

This is my life - I cut out sugar...still sick.  Cut out gluten, got better (rash gone).  Brought sugar sick rash came back.  If I eat sugar or any carbs whatsoever, my scalp breaks out in flakes, my face gets red/oily and starts to burn, and eventually, the itchy rash on my elbows will come back.  I am no longer getting the yeast infections (knock on every piece of wood known to man), but I think that's because I stopped taking the bc pill a year ago.  During a particularly bad PMS week, I threw caution to the wind and had a few glasses of wine and some cream cheese frosting (don't judge) day, itchy head, oily gross skin, irritable attitude...know what that lead to?  Anger and more indulging!!  Stupid endless cycle of crap.  If I'm very strict on my no sugar, no alcohol, no carb diet, I feel great.  But then I end up pissed at the world cause I can't even have a glass of wine with friends on a warm Spring afternoon!!!  Someday I'll either stop whining or figure out a different solution...until then, I'm in the same boat with you.  Wish I had something more positive to share.

This is coming from a Super-Sensitive standpoint:


I am not eating sweets.  (since 7 Years)   I haven't had gluten for about a year.  I am avoiding grains.  (l year)  I am avoiding foods I have antibodies to (6 weeks)  Both when I began avoiding grains and other intolerances I experienced a "yeast cleanse."  Hopefully, this will do the trick!


In my thoughts, I think the celiac came first and lowered my immunity level.  I am thinking that my intense sweet tooth, when I was little, fed the yeast.  I also had several long and short pennecilin shots when I was young.  This kills the good bacteria in the gut and leaves plenty of yeast and bad guys to take over.


I am feeling so much better that I don't mind not eating sweets so much.  The exception being when I am eaten in front of.  I am feeling less upset about that as I realize that not everyone has as big a problem as I would.

    • I thought I would update you all.  I started to eat gluten shortly after this post.  I was miserable by the time I had my EGD.  The doctor gave a diagnosis after the EGD was completed, duodenitis, gastritis and hiatal hernia.  I had abnormal mucosa of the whole stomach and severe inflammation.  The biopsy results came back today, they stated early stages celiac disease.  I wonder what it would've shown if I wasn't on a gluten free diet for two years?  My doctor said he still wants me to come in for a talk, he doesn't really know if he should call it celiac disease since it's early stages....  WTH!  I've really got to find a doctor that specializes in Celiac Disease...    
    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
