Could It Be Celiac?

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have recently been having stomachaches after eating almost everything. I was wondering what was wrong so I went to the doctor today. I gave my doctor a food diary and she seemed to think it may be dairy and she said possibly Celiac but probably not because I had no symptoms after eating plain white rice. According to her white rice has gluten and that Is not true,right. Anyways so she ordered an x ray for me to check for constipation. I thought this was crazy because I have never had trouble "going". Surprisingly the x-Ray showed that there was a little backup. I know that constipation can also be a symptom of celiac so that also leads me to think its celiac. Anyways the doctor also ordered blood tests for celiac among many other things and I was told to stay off dairy until I get my test results. I think my issues with dairy may have to do with the damage celiac has done to my intestines. Anyways I'm jut looking for what you guys think of all this.

Thanks,

Stephanie

Hey Stephanie,

 

Your doctor is a bit confused about 'glutinous rice.' The name of the rice is misleading. It is just meant to be defined with the glutinous reference to being sticky. Rice absolutely doesn't have the gluten that Celiac's react to. Wheat, barley rye and oats are what trigger Celiac symptoms. Yes, you are right about lactose intolerance and constipation as possible symptoms of Celiac. Hopefully your doctor ordered the appropriate tests for screening for Celiac. Request all the results so you can share with us (only if you want to) to see if it was indeed a proper and thorough screening.

 

Until you get your test results back I would wait to cut gluten from your diet. It is much harder to eat it after you've been gluten free if you are in fact intolerant or Celiac. Many don't do well on the gluten challenge and many doctors need you to eat gluten for quite some time before biopsy or serology.

Okay,thank you I will definatley post the results. I remember being tested for celiac a few years ago and it being negative so I'm leaning more torwards being intolerant than having celiac.

The dr may have been checking for diverticulitis with the x-ray, or some other kind of damage to the gut that would explain the symptoms.  Celiac disease can start at any time in life, so a test from 2 years ago dosen't prove anything except what was happening 2 years ago.  Today could be very different.

Please keep close look on this. I had the same thing happen 2 years ago and I had a partial blockage/ twisted intestines. They tested me for Celiac back then also and I was told I did not have it. My new doctor yesterday, a brilliant man, showed me the error in  2 doctors findings..one of them being Mayo Clinic.

Could be Celiac or it could be any number of other issues that have similar symptoms. When the tests come back you should have a little more to go on.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
