I was diganosed with celiac disease in mid May of this year. It was a postivie blood test, but no biopsie. I got totally better on a gluten free diet, but then in Late July, I started to Have symptoms again... So I had more blood work done, and my anitbodies were better, but still high. I just recently had an endoscopic exam and there was no villi damage. i figured it would show that since i have been gluten free for about 5 months, but My stomach was inflamed. The dodctor said I have Gastritis. Are celiac disease and Gastrits related at all? Has anyone else had a similar situation. Since late July i thought I was eating gluten somehow by accident, but I guess that's not the case. I just have stomach infamation... I'm so confused!!!

I, too, have gastritis as well as celiac disease. I don't know if there is a connection between the two. I take Prilosic (it is gluten-free) :rolleyes: in the morning and one before bed and that seems to help alot. Hope you feel better soon

My husband has had misdiagnosed celiac disease (27 years) and a yr after he was finally correctly diagnosed he had endoscopy w/biopsy and Dr. found:

1) ucler almost healed and attributed to celiac

2) gastritis attributed to celiac

3) esophogitis attributed to celiac

4) hiatal hernia - unsure if related to celiac, but it wouldn't surprise me if it were

Unfortunately my husband waited about 9 mos after going gluten-free to get endoscopy and I am sure items 1-3 would have been a lot worse if he agreed to do this test right away when diagnosed.

I also showed gastritis on my endoscope. However, like my celiac disease, it gives me no problems or clinical symptoms. I didn't really ask about it, I guess I am just thinking it will also get better on my gluten-free diet. I have read that gastritis and celiac disease commonly go together.

Add me to the list of celiac disease & Gastritis people. I have been gluten-free for 10-months and still have unexplained issues with food that I know is gluten-free. Between trying to figure out other possible allergies, being gluten-free and having gastritis it has been very frustrating.

Best of luck to you,

Phewww... this makes me feel a little better. Too bad this doctor that did the endoscopy doesn't think I have celiac disease. I had a different doctor diagnose me with celiac disease before I moved. It is REALLY frustertating being tolled you are wrong, when in fact I got much better for two months before I was having pain again.

My new doctor still thinks the old method of biopsie is the ONLY way to diagnose celiac disease. I tryed to explain to his nurse why it makes sense that I thought was having problems with hidden gluten... when really my celiac disease is getting much better, but my tummy is inflamed. It makes sense to me beacuse they 1. Connect to eachother, 2. both celiac disease and Gastritis cause inflamation. So it makes sense that they have a similar discomfort for me and in the same area.

I hope this is all figured out soon. I have lived l;ike this for almost a year now. I know that is not long compared to many people, but with modern methods, and the wealth of info out there, you would think doctors would be better informed.

I agree with you on this one - I mean, look at how much we lay people have learned from each other! I can see how celiac disease and gastritis would go together. I've had an ulcer (pain meds for a completely unrelated problem that wasn't properly addressed by drs) before I developed celiac disease. But prilosec did the trick. You could adopt the diet for gastritis and see if that helps - stay away from caffeine, chocolate, and I forget what else. My ulcer was 10 yrs ago and I still can't have some things - fruit juices of ANY kind, coffee more than three days in a row, grape jelly, and some other things. Hope your tummy is happy again soon!

Ooops not sure what I did - it's been a while since I posted. I did not have stomach trouble until about 5 months after going gluten-free. Maybe this is a coincidence but suddenly I can't drink coffee, juices, spicy foods, without getting terrible burning pain and nausea. My Dr. doesn't think it is connected to celiac disease, but who knows. I take zantac 150 when necessary and stay away from the foods that hurt.

Hello

I have /had all sorts of gut pains.I thought it could be any number of things.I'm glad to be informed that we could possibly have gastritis alone or with celiac disease. I guess a full Gastrointestional exam would diagnose you,but I haven't the means right now. Thanks for enlightening!

My daughters was scoped because of gastritis - she had terrible heartburn, gas,felt sick and a pain just below her belly button after eating. the scope showed her stomach was dotted with 'pre ulcerous' sore red spots and there was evidence of a duodenal? reflux. The biopsy was taken as these symptoms were consistant with 'early celiac disease' even though her bloods were negative because were are wheat free due to my IBS.Her consultant was actually quite good.

She had been on Zantac then Mups losec? because the zantac didn't help much, gaviscon and motillium after all meals.

within 2 days going gluten-free 90% of the symptoms have cleared up although she still is careful with some of the things ther consultant told her to avoid for the gastritis - fruit juice, vinegar, anything too fatty/oily and red (meat unless it is minced. )

Most of my family have gastric issues too when we eat gluten/wheat.

I Hope this is of some help.

hi all

i have had grastritis too for 2 years on and off on two of my endiscopy they found inflamed areas the second time worse than the first plus erosion in the esophigus . i take acifid once daily and it helps alot but if i have an accident it dosent take long for it to be inflammed and i suffer . i got into gluten in a restuarant i went to the other evening it was a meat carvery i asked which would be safe to eat and all there was was one choice of meat and the veg, but when i went to get some meat the chef carving used the same knife for which it used to carve the other meats i tryed to explain to him about contamination , he changed the knife but stuck the fork into the meat instead, i felt really frustrated and ate the small amount of meat he gave me only to have the rest of my evening ruined by being sick . which inturn flared up the grastritus. anyway i hope you feel better soon. ask your doc for some meds for your stomach they do relieve the symptoms faster than u trying to let it heal on its own .

The Doctor found "gastritis in the antrium" during my Endo. I believe that meant that my inflamation is at the beginning of the small intestine. Anyway, he told me, that day, to begin the gluten-free, dairy free diet. I think that type must be connected to Celiac.

It was having gastritis symptoms that landed me in hospital and led to the dr ordering an endoscopy (which I'm waiting for) and blood tests, which were positive for celiac disease. I've had acid trouble in the past, but the problems last year were the worse and caused by some pain meds. I wonder if it was the gastritis that triggered the flare up of celiac disease?

    • Smoothie King
      I have had one or two and was fine.  I don't have an issue with dairy.  If I remember right, most smoothies are gluten-free.
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      I can not say as I have never gone to one or researched the topic.    I would bet that an acupuncturist would be a better choice.  I found it helpful with pain management for a shoulder injury.  It allowed me to heal faster and to do all the things physical therapy therapist wanted me to do without using drugs.  But, finding the root cause of your pain is more important in the long run.  
    • Teeth And Gum Problems
      At age 32, I was told I had severely receding gums and my dentist thought it was very odd. I had the burning mouth syndrome. I could barely eat anything with salt. Then I grew ill. I started to eat soda crackers and water and even that was causing pain in my stomach. One day my boss said, "maybe you have celiac disease."  I'd never heard of it. I stopped eating gluten and got tested. Of course, my tests came back negative, probably because I had not been eating gluten. My gastroenterologist couldn't figure it out and told me to stop looking at the Internet. Over time and without the gluten my inflamed gums, sore mouth and overall mouth sensitivity disappeared, as did my pain in my stomach, my joints and even my dry eye disease. Years passed and I started eating gluten again, ended up in the hospital with severe asthma. The allergist suggested another round of tests and we found I have celiac disease. Recently, I've been under a lot of stress and reached for my go to comfort food, bread. My gums are so inflamed that they even broke open. How stupid of me. But yes, gum inflammation is definitely a severe side effect of gluten for me. My whole mouth hurts and my teeth are now beyond sensitive. My tongue is getting that burning sensation back too. I'm pretty sure my throat is swollen as it is hard to swallow. I'm not quite sure why in the world I would do this to myself when I know what happens. Stay away from gluten folks!!! I know better. Shame on me.  
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      UPDATE: I got my Celiac Disease (celiac disease) tests back and they were all negative which comforts me and also kind of confuses me more. They ran several Celiac tests and are mailing me all the paperwork. Next visit is with the Gastroenterologist at the beginning of March. I kind of feel so discouraged that I don’t have a diagnosis yet but relieved and selfish at the same time. Ironically a few days ago I ran into an old friend/colleague of mine and she has Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) and had the exact same symptoms as me, which was a ray of hope that this might be the issue, but I’ve still not been “officially” diagnosed.  Eliminating the gluten from my diet has helped in eliminating almost all of my bloating and most of the other random pains too, but this lower left abdominal dull ache is still bothering me. My friend/colleague expressed that her aches in that location took several months to eventually feel better. I think I’ve also noticed that dairy and a few other of the cross-reactive foods do actually bother me and I will be needing to cut them out till I heal as well. My friend/colleague thought that after a month, at which point my GI Doc appointment will be, that I should notice some sort of pain difference in my lower left abdomen as long as I don’t get cross-contaminated by accident if I am actually suffering from NCGS. Since I still seem to exhibit some occasionally bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation and my lower left dull ache but nothing else still makes me wonder. No fever. No blood in stool. No acute pain. No vomiting. No nausea. No shortness of breath. No loss of appetite. No headaches. Not tired. Don’t drink nor smoke. And when I sleep on my back the dull ache seems to vanish. And the PCP ruled out other organ issues that they normally check for. Hoping the GI Doc will do an ultrasound or sonogram, upper GI, endoscopy or colonoscopy or whatever, but I’m confused because if I don’t have celiac disease isn’t it true that none of these tests will detect NCGS? After taking my wife to the ER recently for what she thought was a heart attack which was, thankfully, only a hiatal hernia, that has left us with over a 10k hospital bill. Not sure how much insurance will cover yet and our money tree burned down years ago. So disappointed that there’s still no test for NCGS. My aches all seemed to have reached a pinnacle within a week or less last Thanksgiving. Is that how fast everyone else’s symptoms manifested as well? Thank you.
