Possible Other Reason For Gluten Intolerance

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.

    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The office is located in another city than where I go. There is no receptionist at the location closest to me meaning patients wait for the doctor to open her closed door to call their names for a consult. So, I would have to knock on her door which would really make her say that I'm sick since I keep writing letters AND showing up in person. The main office is too far for me to travel with road construction going on for the remainder of the year. I suppose I could mail the letter instead. But the staff is very irresponsible so it might be thrown away. The doctor probably told them that nothing needed correction in my records so ignore further requests from me. The other staff member I dealt with seemed normal, but I complained to the doctor about the staff member I dealt with today when she failed to update my phone number that I gave to her a few times (and which she said she updated), which resulted in me showing up for an appointment (I traveled a distance) one of the testers thought she canceled by leaving voicemail for phone number I no longer had. What I mean is I told the doctor that the staff member said she updated my phone number when the doctor asked me why I was there when I showed up for that cancelled appointment. Unfortunately, this staff member answers the phone most of the time. I'm sure she did what she could to make me look bad to the doctor to make her look good because I complained about her. I feel like scheduling an appointment with a psychologist to tell her what happened with this name calling. I'm sure it's against therapist code or I'd like a psychologist's feedback on this doctor's behavior. There are other patient complaints about her on the Internet how she laughs at patient's pain and suffering. I feel that's how she treated me. Update: The staff member called me back to tell me the doctor amended my report and she put it in the mail. I wonder if the doctor discussed what she said to me with another doctor who told her what she did was unacceptable in the medical field. I am hoping my report is amended or new negative comments are not added by the doctor to say I keep writing her letters or something in that regard.

      The letter I am suggesting has nothing to do with the doctor.  I would type it and walk it to the desk when are in the building for your other appointment. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Thanks. I'm not sure if the doctor will read another email I send and that's the way I'm told by staff to contact her. It will just confirm that I keep writing her letters although I only sent her one email about it! I already told the staff and her that I didn't want my medical records sent to any doctor's office, but I don't know if they will do it out of spite. It was scary talking to this doctor because she wouldn't listen or let me get a word in...I guess that's the reason why I feel the need to raise my voice at this office. When I requested a Lyme disease prescription from another doctor years ago before I knew I had celiac disease, this ignorant doctor told me not to come back to his office because there's no such thing as Lyme disease so only crazy people think they have it. I thought that was the worst experience I had with a doctor, but this experience was worse. I mean this neuropsychiatrist kept calling me a sick person over and over. It's so scary dealing with doctors like this. I really don't know how many other doctors may have wrote in my records that my symptoms are all in my head because celiac disease isn't real.   And my neurologist said this neuropsychiatrist was great. Maybe he says that about all the doctors he refers to patients to? I don't know if you call her personality psychopath since she appeared really nice during my consult, but she was thinking all this negative s*** in her mind at the time or different than she appeared to be.
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Sort of funny.  Says no wheat at the bottom but also says this " Other Ingredients: Proprietary Protein Blend (Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate), Cocoa (processed with alkali), Inulin, Oat Fiber, Fructose, Natural Flavors, Maltodextrin, Soy Lecithin, Tricalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum. Contains milk and soy ingredients. Contains wheat ingredients.   I bet they do not use gluten free oats, so its a bit of a gamble.  Not one a Celiac should take as there is no such thing as "not severe Celiac".  Even if you don't feel the damage, consuming gluten will start damaging you.  Maybe its just catching up with you.

      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.
