Gastritis And Cd?
0

14 posts in this topic

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?

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
