Inflammation In The Stomach
0

8 posts in this topic

Hi

I took my daughter for her biopsy on the 29th of january. While doing her biopsy they noticed some inflammation in her stomach and her intestines were twisted. Does anyone know if this is related to celiac disease. The doctor did mention that they thought celiac disease effected the intestines but you can also see signs of the disease in the stomach.

Hi

Now I know why no one has replied to my message I did some research and found out that Ronni has Intestinal Malrotation. I am so worried I dont know what to do the doctor is suppose to contact me today regarding her biopsy I already know she will need surgery to repair her intestines but I still dont understand why she has inflammation in her stomach. Does anyone understand why the doctor would tell me not to start the gluten-free diet yet Im so confused. Im a single mother and work from 8:00 to 5:00 her doctor is in California we live in Las Vegas so its hard for me to get in touch with her doctor to ask questions. We moved to las Vegas a year ago I didnt want to change her insurance because she was sick all the time and I wanted to wait until she was healthy. But this has really been hard for us. Please if anyone has any information on inflammation in the stomach I would really appriciate it.

Thank you,

Hillary

Hillary, I am sorry you and your daughter are going through this. :( I do not know about inflammation of the stomach but I do know when I had my colonoscopy the doctor said my colon was twisted too however he did not seem to be worried about it all. <_<

Maybe the reason the doc don't want to start on the gluten-free diet yet is because he wants to do further testing on your daughter?!?! Has the doc drawn blood to check her for Celiac or did he/she skip to the endoscopy?

I know at this point you want some answers and I don't blame you. Have you considered testing through Enterolab? It is noninvasive and very simple. You get the results in a matter of weeks and they are accurate!

I hope your little one feels better soon :) !

Hi Stacie,

Thank you for your reply, I just got word this morning that her biopsy confirmed celiac disease and the biopsy on her stomach was fine. Ronni goes in feb. 13 for x-rays on her intestines to see if she will need surgery. The doctor also told me to start her diet. I will be going shopping tonight.

That is good, at least now you know what makes her sick and you can avoid it by putting her on a gluten-free diet! :)

I am sure you will begin to see an improvement in her within a couple of weeks, I could tell a difference within days.

Hillary,

I'm so glad to hear that your daughter's biopsy was conclusive! celiac disease isn't the easiest diagnosis to adjust to, but it isn't the hardest, either, and on the gluten-free diet I am sure she will grow up happy and healthy. Good luck in your first gluten-free shopping venture tonight!

Hi

Ronni's x-rays came back fine she doesn't need surgery. But I'm having a problem with this diet ronni is picky to begin with and she doesn't like the gluten-free food at least what we have gotten so far. We drove back from California on sunday after her doctors appointment, when we stopoped at the gas station ronnni wanted something sweet (I did have gluten-free Crackers and Cookies for her but she doesn't like them) well they didn't have a Hershey's bar so I let her get a Jolly Rancher she has been sick for two days. I feel she's not getting enough food. I sent her to school with turkey, ham, grapes,orange and some gluten-free chips I know half of it will come back. I feel so alone with this diet and I cry for her thinking this is her life.

Hi Hillary, she doesn't need surgery, that is wonderful news!!! I know how you feel I too have a picky daughter ;) . My daughter is 8 and in the 3rd grade. I usually try to send her to school with Rice, pasta (corn), chicken, hamburgers along with chips and fruit. Her teacher has been nice enough to warm her lunch for her after I wrote a letter explaining celiac disease and asked that she do this. They added the letter and her diagnosis to her file and meet her needs. Maybe this would be an option for you? And if your daughter is anything like mine she comes home and chows down, am I right???? :)

I hope she begins to feel better and don't get discouraged, it will get better!!! Hang in there :D

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      so i was just recently diagnosed with Celiac disease and I am having trouble wrapping my head around it.... While i know that maintaining a gluten free diet is going to help me feel better - i can't get over the fact that i cannot eat my favorite foods anymore.. no more pizza, no more pasta, no more wheat thins.......... yes i realize there are gluten free versions of all of these but it's obviously just not the same.  I can't just go out and grab a couple drinks at the bar with my friends anymore..... i really do not know how to handle this and it's already wearing me down.  I feel like after living for 28 years my entire life has flipped upside down and everything is going to change... i'm sorry for sounding like such a lost puppy but i just wanted to vent a little bit and see how you all deal with this... i told my friends about it and they act like it is so not a big deal at all but to me it feels like my world has come crashing down 
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      I hope you do well on your new diet cristiana, whatever it turns out to be.  Another site with lots of paleo diet info is Marks Daily Apple.  He also lists cooking oils that are good for you vs bad for you to eat.  Try searching his site for topics of interest.  I am not too interested in the paleo diet backstory as such.  But it seems like a good diet for many people to try at least. The diabetes forum has good info also, from people with diabetes vs doctors.  They used to have a chat for people to ask questions, but I don't know i that is still active.  From memory, some of the people there limited themselves to 1 cracker a day's worth of carbs.  And they were off their medication completely.   Mostly against doctors advice about diet, but some doctors give bad advice about diabetes to people.  Like telling people they have to eat carbs to be healthy, which is not true. http://www.diabetesforum.com/forum.php
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Good evening, I tested positive about 15 years ago. I have a 3 year old son and a 1 year old daughter. I just had them both tested for Celiac's. Ped ran a celiac panel. My son the nurse said was all in normal range however my daughters IGA total was 23, range (24-121) so she test positive. The doctor wants to run more blood work to make sure it's not a false positive. My gut says she has it. She does not like any bread or cookies so she really only gets gluten from pasta and goldfish so to even test positive on an almost gluten-free diet make me concerned. Is there anything I should ask the doctor to test for or better tests for kids? I just don't want to miss anything.  Before when I would bring it up at visits the doctors always said that since they did not have any failure to thrive ( always top of growth charts) that they weren't showing any symptoms. I never had any issues with losing weight.  My only complains or constipation joint pain and gas which she has both. Thanks for any advice.    
    • food allergies
      being new to this, I have started avoiding gluten and dairy. I seem to be sensitive to other foods like corn, tomatoes, bananas, and possibly grains and sugars. I still get puffy in the face whenever I eat certain things. other than blood testing, does any meds help with this? Also, is gas X gel tablets ultra strength gluten free? 
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Welcome!   I am not a doctor, but with your test results you should continue to go forward in the diagnostic process.   My main symptom was anemia and I didn't even have gut issues at all!  People with celiac disease can present in many ways.  My blood test was mildly positive yet my biopsy (via endoscopy) revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage. I would spent time learning about celiac disease and make sure you do not start the gluten free diet before all testing is complete.  This is critical in getting an accurate diagnosis.   Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
