Possible Other Reason For Gluten Intolerance
Posted 01 April 2009 - 05:20 PM
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.

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.
Diagnosed Celiac Jan-Feb 2013
Gluten Free since Feb. 2013
