Posters in this thread: How are you doing? Did you find anything to help your fat absorption issues? Have you tried enzymes?

We have some new research: 1 out of 3 Celiacs in a small-scale study had pancreatic insufficiency and improved with enzymes - eventually not even needing the enzymes any more

http://www.pharmaceu...ufficiency.html

Here's one more: "We conclude that a mild/moderate pancreatic insufficiency is quite frequent in celiacs, but that it may be completely independent of nutritional status"

ever since I stopped taking the digestive enzymes my situation has deteriorated again. back to loose bowels again after months of bathroom bliss. going to restart enzymes once the stool specimen goes off for testing again...

quincy, Please let us know how the tests turn out.

How long have you been gluten-free? What types of enzymes are/were you taking?

I had some issues with fat digestion a few weeks back, but apparently that was at least partially caused by some gluten that snuck its way into my diet. I have been chatting with some others and hypothesizing that fat digestion problems are actually caused by continued inflammation - which could be caused by either continued trace gluten exposure OR by some other food allergen causing continuous inflammation.

I am wondering if you are constantly getting some trace amounts of gluten as well? I have been looking on some other websites and finding lots of products I thought were "safe" actually test positive for Gluten..... :-/

Yes Deezer, I thought I was getting gluten from a new source. I was convinced my recent ttg reading would have crept up but it came back negative again. I have been gluten-free since dx last year april 21st.

my functional medicine internist thinks my gallbladder is not working which would add to my fat intolerance/malabsorption. I was taking DigestZymeV by Ortho molecular which you can only get through a fm doc or nutritionist. Once the stool analysis is done I will be going on that and a gallbladder/liver cleanser by designs for health called LV/GB complex. Ox Bile is in both of them as well as the pancreatic enzymes.

if you do a search on celiac and gallbladder disease you will get alot of hits and alot of information. Some are theorizing that many un diagnosed celiacs often present with gallbladder disease first because the CCK that causes the gallbladder to contract when fat and protein are present is secreted in the duodenal mucosa, which as we know is damaged in us w celiac disease. It's interesting because back in 1995 I wound up in the hospital for 3 days with pancreatitis after eating a high fat meal. No one suspected gb disease or celiac, they just did a ct scan to see if the pancreas looked ok. All of this is connected obviously.
