I am posting this because I have seen many where they have been gluten free for a long time, yet have seen little to no recovery. I have first hand experience with this.

I became severely gluten intolerant. I had all the symptoms. My Para thyroid went crazy, constipated, fatigue, skin, tooth loss, hair loss, blurred vision, sleeplessness, and the list goes on. At the same time my wife & children even had symptoms. All varying in severity. I went gluten-free. I could go to the bathroom again, could function a little, and so on. Now the blood tests and endoscopy came up negative. We all know that this is not a 100% anyway. I reglutenated several times, sometimes on a blind, and went down hill.

The rest of my family were also not well. I took the rest of my family off gluten and they too were a little better. It turned out we had a serious mold problem. Mold victims become gluten intolerant. The toxins produced by mold cause our immune system to go wild. Your good flora gets depleted by fungi colonization not to mention that certain hormones and cytokines cause digestion problems. I will discuss in more detail all aspects of mold toxicity (mycotoxicosis) in the future.

If exposed to the levels we were you now become toxically injured. This means now your cell defenses are weakened and the ability to fight toxins, whether chemical or made by nature, are severely compromised. This in turn causes a hypersensitivity to chemicals. Fragrances, inks, gases, or many other elements make the toxically injured sick. All the symptoms that Celiacs have, mirror exactly that of the toxically injured. Keep in mind that severe exposure to chemicals causes the same. It does not need to be mold to cause toxic injury.

Diabetes, seizures, memory loss, hair loss, and all the rest have been scientifically linked to toxins. Even cancer is.

Please keep this in mind, if you are not recovering. Less then 2% of doctors are even trained with this. I have researched this in depth, and have successfully net worked with researchers and doctors to confirm this. If you ever heard of Sick Building Syndrome, this is one of the most common results.

If, people wish, I will post more in depth information in the future.

Ps: Please note the email on my account is not working temporarily. Trying to get it changed.

Can mold cause positive blood and biopsies? If so is it treatable? I didn't get ill till we moved into our 100 year old house! Ended up with a nasty fungal respiratory infection (treated with anti fungal). This fungus should never be found in the lungs. They had me pegged with COPD and Intersestial lung disease. All reversed with treatment. Very interesting post. Please keep us informed with any new developments. I believe there is also more to this story.

I am very interested in mold as a possibility for my getting sick. We moved to our new house in 2006 and I have had a problem with mold in my washer and shower. We live in the country now so I guess mold is just more of a problem here. It is very hard to stay on top of it in the spring and fall. Anyway I always had constipation as a child and some stomach issues but not until we moved did I have any intestinal issues. I also started getting sick more often. Since we moved out here I have had pneumonia, thrush, parasites, a mycoplasma infection, strep, H. Pylori, blurry vision (my eye doctor says my eyes and retina are fine) fatigue that is severe at times, now Im having loose stools constantly and now a positive Celiac biopsy. My GI told me to stay away from milk as well as wheat and gluten. My regular doctor is checking a blood test for auto immune disease because I got livedo reticularis and raynauds. He said Celiac people often have RA, Lupus, Scleroderma and other AI disease.

I wonder if an allergy to mold can cause a false postive blood or biopsy test for Celiac. I think I'll go to an allergist and just get tested for everything. Then if I am allergic to mold I dont know how I can get rid of it so it dosnt keep coming back in my house.

I was diagnosed with Celiac in 2009.  I have been fighting with Mold issues on and off since 2007.  I would love more information, as my doctor is telling me I am highly allergic to Mold and I can't seem to get better. I need help!

Do you have any links to sources or data on a gluten-mold connection? I'd be interested to learn more.
