Blood In Stool
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi! I posted a few questions here a month or so ago. I had my EGD and colonoscopy today.

Heres what I know... The paper they gave me said everything was normal. She did not say anything about hemorrhoids even though the reason my Internist wanted the test was because there was blood in my stool. I found that strange. Can Gluten intolerance cause blood in the stool.

She did say she took a biopsy to test for gluten intolerance and told my husband that it causes a lot of the same symptoms I have. I was so excited that I didn't even have to bring it up.

The paper they gave me said the biopsys were taken at the GE junction. I thought the gluten biopsy was taken in a different location am I wrong?

She also said that a lot of my pain can be because I am short waisted and the gas gets trapped easy. Anyone else have this problem?

Blood in stools is not really a typical celiac symptom, but I did have some slight blood on the toilet pape which resolved after going gluten-free. I have spoken with others with blood in stools that went away off gluten, though.

do you have problems with dairy? I bleed when I drink milk. I also have a problem when I'm glutened because I get really constipated and then get hemorrhoids. I also am short-waisted...hmmm...wonder if that's why I get so much upper pain with gas and bloating? Never thought about it that way before. I get upper left pain and bloated feeling, like it's under my ribs.

My heart sank when she told me that. It was like she was saying you'll always have that pain and theres nothing you can do about it.

Under my ribs on the left side is exactly where I hurt a good portion of the time. Apparently there is a sharp turn in your colon right there and our short waists scrunch it up even more.

Blood in the stool can be indicative of celiac disease. However, here is a list of 221 other cause of blood in the stool. I passed blood every time I went #2 in the 6 months before I was diagnosed (50+ times per day, if you can believe it). I had total villous atrophy, though and was pretty far gone.

The GE junction is the junction between the esophagus and the stomach. This is not generally where biopsies would be taken for celiac disease. Biopsies for celiac disease would be in the duodenum, which is the area of the intestines after the stomach. Is the GE junction the only place they took biopsies?

Hoping you will have some answers soon on what is causing your symptoms.

My cousin is celiac... dx'ed even.... and still cheats (found out by accident when my mom visited me... long story... short forum)

One thing is she IS cheating on her diet and I know she is bleeding like you mentioned above, what I was wondering about if after so much damage to your intestines could you actually start bleeding... in your intestines? NOT trying to worry anyone but just a thought I had after hearing about my cousin is all

I have been for the most part gluten-free for 11 months and have been having weeks that I feel better than I have for 22 years, however I accidentally consumed some gluten two weeks ago and the abdominal pain I had was intense, so bad that if I sat at a chair or drove my car I would get a wave of pain that was debilitating. I don't know if anyone else has this happen but all I can tell you is what happens to me.

    • 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!
