What Supplements Help?

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I was just diagnosed 6 days ago and have been eating gluten-free since then. The damage to the intestinal lining was severe. So far, there is no change in my symtoms. I was wondering if there was any thing else I could do/take to help heal my digestive tract. and speed recovery.

There are several good discussions on supplements. Usually a good multi vitamin is a start. From there, you probably need to supplement based on your own personal needs. Those of us with neurological problems steer toward the B vitamins. Those with anemia steer toward the iron. The ones of us with muscular or bone concerns add calcium and magnesium. There are a lot of options...just verify with the manufacturer that the supplement is gluten-free. Your doctor may want to suggest specific things for your unique situation. He may also be able to assess whether you can take the oral supplements or require injections of certain ones.

A multi vitamin is a good thing to have...I would recommend a liquid vitamin because of the way it is absorbed by your body. I would also recommend probiotics .Probiotic bacteria favorably alter the intestinal microflora balance, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. I also would highly recommend Enzymes which are great for digestion. Sublingual B12 vitamins are great too because you put them under your tongue and they go into your blood stream that way so you know your body is absorbing it. There are many discussions on here about supplements so you might want to take a look at them and then you can get an idea on what people take.

    • Ok, that was my understanding of it too after some reading, but the fact that the result was under "celiac reflex panel" is what confused me.    I do have some unspecified autoimmune activity going on in my body. My inflammation levels are very high, my complement testing has come back off, and nobody really knows why. A total high Iga isn't a surprise in this case if it doesn't actually hab anything to do with gluten. Going gluten free made my inflammation markers rise rather than go down, so I'm inclined to believe I'm mostly okay with gluten, aside from some digestive issues that I believe are simply from the wheat not being fermented. Sourdough causes me no issue,  but soft white bread destroys me for example. Anyways, It's all very confusing and I wish I knew what the heck was going on with my body. 
    • maybe check exactly which blood tests you had done as well if the dermatologist doesn't know much about celiac its possible they didn't run enough
    • i think chips would vary from place to place depending on the ingredients where you go
    • Hey Everyone! Been celiac for 6 years, and it's my first time on a forum.  I assume my story is the same as most of yours: I was really sick and skinny and bloated, got diagnosed with celiac, went gluten-free and felt amazing, then slowly, but surely, the symptoms and elevated antibodies returned, no matter how OCD I am about avoiding cc. Basically I have what they call Non-Responsive Celiac disease.  I'm wondering, is there something ELSE that I can do? Clearly the gluten-free diet isn't enough anymore. I know I'm not alone in this experience. And I know doctors don't have any advice besides the gluten-free diet (and the new celiac drug that is apparently in phase III)). But do you guys know of any other tricks?  I went on anti-anxiety SSRIs for a bit to help with my anxiety problems, and that really helped my celiac. But now that I've sort of developed a tolerance to my low dose, the symptoms have returned. Anyone else try this? Or low doses or steroids/anti-inflammatory drugs?  I'm really sick of feeling sick. I even tried the Fasano (Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet) for 3 months, but it didn't really work. Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated! Or even the names of doctors who have helped you!  
    • 60% of celiacs with dh test negative on the celiac blood work. Fact. Many people with DH have no digestive symptoms and only about 40% of them have the positive blood tests (serology) for celiac disease.
