I get really snippy when given gluten, then I feel bad for about a day afterwords because I snipped at a person who was innocent. That is on top of constipation and bloating.

Hello every one. Gluten and casein intolerance have ruined so many lives. My dad used to beat my mom... Couldn't help it. Ate food, got angry. I have forgiven him for it . My dad was diagnosed as schizophrenic...nope.. Gluten/casein intolerant. My brother diagnosed as bipolar......nope... Gluten/casein intolerant.. My sister... Angry.. Yells all the time... Gluten and casein intolerant... Me.... Anxiety/ depression.... Gluten/casein intolerant.

I had myself and my brother tested IgG from mymedlab.... My celiac test from blood was negative... But my IgG testing..wheat casien gluten and many more...

Please do no just go off of the first test...

Please go to the celiac Chicago research. 200 symptoms are related food intolerances.

Look up "brain allergies" if you have been diagnosed with any type of mental illness. Also look up functional medicine doctors... These doctors know all about gluten and food allergies..

Also, I found a a veterinarian that had mental issues and was gluten affected ... Www.dogtorj.com. So much great information..

I don't think a Veterinarian is a good source for human food intolerance issues.  Also, IMHO, I would not trust a medical diagnosis from a mail away lab, too many variables and you don't specifically state what all you tested for and what was negative or positive.  Allergies are different from Intolerances and so on.  Some psychiatric issues have nothing to do with food.  You may still want to pursue mental health care. 

 

Good luck to you.

FYI. The veterinarian is gluten intolerant like you and I. His site is full of great informations for humans and animals. He has been gluten free since 2000. So he has 13 more years of experience in dealing with this. :). Tere

Well, I am a Celiac, not gluten intolerant and I have over 25 years of "experience" regarding food issues and other AI Diseases. 

 

I am glad you are benefiting from the gluten-free diet.

I  am not aware of any evidence that states we celiacs cannot eat the flesh and fat of animals who eat grains and soy--as this veterinarian claims.

 

I read this in one of this articles:

 

He questions:  " How hard is it to believe that the flesh-  and fat - of animals consuming gluten, soy and corn contain enough lectins to do us harm?"

 

Answer: It's hard to believe.

This thread is very interesting. Like so many coeliacs I thought my bad temper/anger was just part of my personality but realise that I have not always been like this at all and it is my celiac disease and other food intolerances that are playing a part. These intolerances make me very tired and very "down" and if anyone asks/tells me to do something I really can't be bothered doing then they get a mouthful.

 

I also now realise that although my celiac disease antibody level is down to "normal", this is not the full story and there is more to celiac disease than is commonly realised. Since going on the gluten-free diet I have become intolerant to all dairy, oats, eggs, soya, grapes, pears, ginger....never ending. My body appears to be a mass of inflammation - costant SI pain, sore arms which leads to frequent headaches and migraines.

 

But it is the depressive symptoms that I truly detest and the anger/short temper that comes with it. Now seeing a specialist who hopefully will guide me through a healing diet.

I am starting to think I have a gluten intolerance.  I have a rash on arms, chest, and back and now this anger thing.  Google searches bring me here.  Help.  Where do I start?  Aside from stopping gluten do I need labs run?  Had gallbladder out in June and really thought it would help the Gastro issues.

Here are the tests: 
 
-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG
-Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG
-EMA IgA 
-total serum IgA and IgG (control test)
-AGA IGA and AGA IgG - older and less reliable tests largely replace by the DGP tests
-endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken
 
You ou have to be consuming gluten daily for these tests to be accurrate (8 to 12 weeks).

i would suggest reading the DH (rash) section of the forum as there is a very specific way to biopsy the rash and it seems most Derms mess up.  

 

Welcome to the forum and let us know how it goes!

Consume gluten for accurrate testing.

Hi. Just wanted to say how much I love this site.  I used to think I was going crazy with the anxiety and irritability. Since going gluten free I have felt so much better although it does come back after I have been glutened. So good to know this is normal and it's not just me.

This past year- I've had a lot of anger/irritability issues. I'm so relieved at how stable my moods are since going gluten free.

    • I do est out occasionally - but not indiscriminately.  I am careful to choose places that under stand gluten free.  And places that the food is naturally gluten-free, helps, too.  Celiacs can't just eat something that should be gluten-free and hope it is.  We have to use some common sense and ask questions.  
    • You are right that the next step is an endoscopy, which still is the "gold standard" in diagnosing celiac disease.   However, for various reasons the endoscopy is not done because financial contraints  or long wait times (up to a year!), or too ill to proceed.   You have two positives.  You only need one positive to move forward.    The TTg tests  do not need to be positive for a diagnosis (which requires a positive on an antibodies test which you had and an endoscopy).  My TTg tests were negative and I only had a positive on the DGP IGA, yet biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe damage. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Unless your PCP is a celiac expert (unlikely), I would insist on a GI consult.   Please find one who is celiac-savvy.   keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete (biopsies done).  You never know if lab results are going to get lost.  Besides any celiac testing requires the patient to be on a gluten diet.  In the meantime, keep on researching.  Only YOU can be your best health advocate!  
    • I'm having some issues, that I didn't really even know I was having until the blood work showed them. Retracing my steps, I eat very strictly gluten free at home. I eat too much dairy (which is not only a problem for many celiacs, it is also not an anti-inflammatory). The husband and I have eaten out a lot over the last three years of my diagnosis. I guess I have not been overly cautious as I should have been, which I'm guessing could be my problems (although I am seeing the GI doctor tomorrow). So, I'm wondering if anyone here no longer eats out ever? Were you eating out and realized you were still doing yourself damage? 
    • I have been gluten free for three years and I had never *noticed* any neck swelling... but recently at a routine appointment they noticed my neck was swollen. Thyroid ultrasound and thyroid blood work was good. I went to my primary care doctor and she did some blood work. Slight elevation in platelets, elevated C reactive protein, somewhat anemic. Going to GI doctor tomorrow to get some more input into this. Tracing my steps, I bet I cross-contaminate myself way too often as the husband and I eat out too much. I guess we will see....
    • Hello!  How long have you been gluten free? A lot of celiac patients gain weight when starting gluten free diets, for various reasons. Surprisingly, many times their diet becomes more unhealthy calorie-wise than it ever was! I am living proof of this. I have several "kick start" diets I recommend to all my gluten-free friends. If you tell me more about yourself and what kinds of foods you like, maybe I can help?
