Not Celiac And Pregnant
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

 

  So i am 4 months pregnant and someone in my family seems to think i have a Gluten intolerance (I feel fine and dont think i have a problem) a few weeks ago i ate gluten infront of them and now they wont talk to me saying that im killing my baby. My question, Is there anyway that Gluten could harm my baby in any way even tho i am not intolerant? Is there any literature online that i can print off to prove that i will be fine and am not going to kill my child. This is getting very frustrating!

That is confusing.  You have to prove you don't have Celiac Disease or Gluten intolerance to them?  Maybe ask them for their proof that a healthy person eating gluten will hurt the baby?  Tell them your doctor has said you are fine?

 

If a person diagnosed with Celiac disease eats gluten, they could harm the baby. 

 

 

This is for someone with Celiac disease:

If you have no health issues, there is no reason for a family member to assume gluten can harm your baby and If presented as you may kill your baby is being a bit harsh...imo.

 

Does this family member have Celiac or NCGS?  Do you have any health issues other than digestive?  Perhaps this person thinks you are dismissing symptoms of Celiac other than digestive?

 

If this family member has Celiac Disease and is a first degree relative, perhaps have your OB order a Celiac Antibody Panel...if you haven't already had one as ALL first degree relatives should be tested...regardless of pregnancy.

The person is an inlaw and yes they have a sensitivity. i was feeling sick after eating 8 or 9 months ago( found out pregnant and lost baby) symptoms went away. ate gluten and no problem. and again am pregnant and anything i eat makes me kind of sick,. so i am almost %100 sure that its hormones and not gluten. This tension and stress is not good on the baby.. i dont know how to deal with this. oh and i as well have a health issue that (they) also think has to do with gluten but talked to my doctor and they said it doesnt

Everyone feels sick when pregnant.  Its hard for you to prove something that is ridiculous.  It would be like me saying you shouldn't eat apples while pregnant and asking you to prove you it is OK.  There is no research because its not an issue.

 

I would just ignore her.  Say that your doctor says you are fine. It really isn't something you should worry about.  As it is your husband's relative, tell him to talk with them and tell them to stop stressing you out.  This is the time he needs to protect his wife and baby.

Wow! Thats crazy! I feel the same way! I feel they need to prove to you that you shouldn't eat it. I'm sure your Dr. Gave you a good diet to go on being preggers. Show them that or look on line for a good pregnancy diet print it off and show it to them. How frustrating for you! Ohh and Congrats!!

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
