I've found that I am shakey a lot and then when I eat surgar it goes away almost instantly, I was wondering if there is any disease that is like this maybe related to celiac disease.

I don't know, but would that have to do with sugar level and diabetes? I have no idea, but I've never heard of that having a connectoin with Celiac Disease.

I don't know what the correlation here is but I was diagnosed because I told my Doctor about gnawing hunger-like pains that I experienced almost constantly. These pains were relieved with the consumption of sugar. If I did not eat or consume sugar I would eventually get very shaky and weak. For some reason when I told her this she decided that she needed to test for celiac and my blood work came back showing high IGG. I then went gluten-free for a month and felt fantastic. Since then I have been consuming gluten for biopsy reasons. I am meeting with the top celiac GI tomorrow and hopefully will be biopsied next week., I can't wait to be done with this I am so sick of being sick. I smashed up my new car earlier this evening because it affects my vision, particulary depth perception. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this? I would greatly appreciate any input on these areas. Thanks!

I don't know if it is related to Celiac or not but I get shaky from time to time too. Normally it is when I haven't eaten in a while or haven't had a lot of sugar. I figure my sugar level in my blood just gets low so I eat some candy or drink some soda and I feel better quickly.

Are you hypoglycemic?

I get shaky too if I haven't eaten. I do know I am VERY sugar sensitive. I can't have too much or not enough.

My mother has always had to be careful with the amount of sugar in her diet as well. I don't think it is related to Celiac, she doesn't have it, we simply call those times as getting "fuzzy." It is possible we are hypoglycemic, I don't know how that is diagnosed. Our bodies just need to be as balanced as possible.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
