Symptoms Of Celiac May Be Associated With Ic

3 posts in this topic

I noticed many of you show symptoms of Interstitial Cystitis. For those who did not know IC is associated with Celiac, IBS, Fibromayalgia, etc. IC is a non curable bladder disease, and can be read about here I have lived with this since I was at least 12 and can answer any questions if possible. Good luck, we are stronger than most!

I can't remember if I have this or not.  I do have some bladder issues.  The doc wanted to stick up a tube to take a look to see if the bladder was irritated.  I knew it was irritated.  I looked up the treatment for the problem they were looking for and it would be following a diet.  7/10 things on the diet I already knew to be a problem.  I opted to not do the test and just avoid the three other foods.  Since going gluten free and recovering my bladder has usually been peaceful.  I would be interested in hearing more about this problem if it is what I am talking about.  I am curious to know if my bladder will eventually tolerate these things.


I checked and IC is what I thought.  Chocolate and tomato were on the list.  I would like to see that it is connected with celiac and if there must be strict avoidance of all irritants, or if it causes only temporary symptoms.

I was diagnosed with IC in Feb of this year and it was kind of a stepping stone to controlling my problems. I still have issues though. I take prelief wit meals, trying glucosamine and marshmallow root. my symptoms get worse if I drink something acidic or if I am close to my period. Sometimes I have to wake up over 5 times in the middle of the night. It's frustrating. I went through the instillations but I didn't make it to the final one due to the fact that the specialist was going on holidays for 2 weeks and they could not be performed without him being present in the hospital. All of my symptoms came back and I just couldn't be bothered to drive the hour and wait 3 hours at the hospital for another 6 weeks.  So it was a waste of time for the 4 weeks I had them. I've heard of people being able to do them themselves at home.

    • Ok, that was my understanding of it too after some reading, but the fact that the result was under "celiac reflex panel" is what confused me.    I do have some unspecified autoimmune activity going on in my body. My inflammation levels are very high, my complement testing has come back off, and nobody really knows why. A total high Iga isn't a surprise in this case if it doesn't actually hab anything to do with gluten. Going gluten free made my inflammation markers rise rather than go down, so I'm inclined to believe I'm mostly okay with gluten, aside from some digestive issues that I believe are simply from the wheat not being fermented. Sourdough causes me no issue,  but soft white bread destroys me for example. Anyways, It's all very confusing and I wish I knew what the heck was going on with my body. 
    • maybe check exactly which blood tests you had done as well if the dermatologist doesn't know much about celiac its possible they didn't run enough
    • i think chips would vary from place to place depending on the ingredients where you go
    • Hey Everyone! Been celiac for 6 years, and it's my first time on a forum.  I assume my story is the same as most of yours: I was really sick and skinny and bloated, got diagnosed with celiac, went gluten-free and felt amazing, then slowly, but surely, the symptoms and elevated antibodies returned, no matter how OCD I am about avoiding cc. Basically I have what they call Non-Responsive Celiac disease.  I'm wondering, is there something ELSE that I can do? Clearly the gluten-free diet isn't enough anymore. I know I'm not alone in this experience. And I know doctors don't have any advice besides the gluten-free diet (and the new celiac drug that is apparently in phase III)). But do you guys know of any other tricks?  I went on anti-anxiety SSRIs for a bit to help with my anxiety problems, and that really helped my celiac. But now that I've sort of developed a tolerance to my low dose, the symptoms have returned. Anyone else try this? Or low doses or steroids/anti-inflammatory drugs?  I'm really sick of feeling sick. I even tried the Fasano (Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet) for 3 months, but it didn't really work. Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated! Or even the names of doctors who have helped you!  
    • 60% of celiacs with dh test negative on the celiac blood work. Fact. Many people with DH have no digestive symptoms and only about 40% of them have the positive blood tests (serology) for celiac disease.
