Pyloric Stenosis, Raynaud's, And Celiac

I had pyloric stenosis that was corrected surgically when I was a few weeks old. I've had Raynaud's for years and just recently was diagnosed with Celiac, I am about to get tested for Crohn's. Are these diseases related?

I don't know about the pyloric stenosis but the others are all auto immune conditions. One theory about pyloric stenosis is that it is an allergic reaction.

I was just told I have celiac sprue last month and on top of that I also have endometriosis, raynaulds and am now in the process of confirming a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and possible hypoparathyroidism. I think celiac's can act as a domino effect if it isn't found soon enough. I've read that some people's other problems can lessen or go away with the diet. I've definitely noticed some relief in other areas when I'm doing well with the diet (I'm still struggling a month into this with cross contamination and faulty label reading). But when it's right, everything goes away for me - the joint pain, belly bloat, the ice blocks for hands and feet, etc, etc. :)

Good luck! The good days make it worth everything.

I also had pyloric stenosis corrected as a newborn. I don't think it's related to celiac disease, but anyway here's two of us. I believe that my mom was celiac; if yours is as well, then maybe there's the connection. Maybe we should ask Will Ferrell; he has the most famous pyloromyotomy scar (those of us born in the '60s have a gigantic scar from the operation) going.

My son had pyloric stenosis surgery in '83. He doesn't have celiac disease but I do....

I also had pyloric stenosis corrected a 5 weeks old. I have Hashimoto's and now suspect gluten is an issue. I recently had a saliva test that showed slightly low IgA and elevated gliadin antibodies. I've read that a gluten free diet can help with thyroid antibodies. Anyone find this to be true?

wow this is interesting. I may have to do some googling...

My brother, born in 1960, had pyloric stenosis.... and now has diverticulitis.

I have had a rash (now resolving on the gluten-free diet) that has many of the characteristics of DH.

Another brother has a rash, also on his legs....his doctor is treating it like excema...

My niece has benefited from a gluten free diet, as my daughter has.

no diagnosed celiacs in the family (yet) but certainly seems like there are gluten connections.

Would make an interesting research study.

I did do some googling, but I couldn't come up with any references that indicated a link or a causal relationship between pyloric stenosis or celiac or gluten intolerance.

However, I did find out that pyloric stenosis is genetic. So if it happens that you have family members that had PS, and family members with celiacs.... it probably just means your gene pool is doubly blessed :lol:

my little brother had quite the scar from his operation. My mother used to tell him he was special, like one of Dr. Seuss's Star Bellied Sneetches.

I found this:

Children between 9 and 24 months tend to present with bowel symptoms and growth problems shortly after first exposure to gluten-containing products, pyloric stenosis[4] sometimes being a factor. Older children may have more malabsorption-related problems and psychosocial problems, while adults generally have malabsorptive problems. Many adults with subtle disease only have fatigue or anaemia. [2]

I was diagnosed with Celiac's in April of 2010. I also was born with pyloric stenosis, which was surgically corrected when I was 8 weeks old. I have wondered since my recent diagnosis if there was any relation between celiac's and pyloric stenosis. Sounds like it could be possible!

Old topic, but I've just been trying to find if there was a link, was googling and this came up. ;)

Reading another thread about children got me thinking about my children.

My son had pyloric stenosis which was surgically treated when he was 5 weeks old. I tested positive on the celiac blood test, and am awaiting confirmation by biopsy, but my son has had a bloated looking belly since he was born, and I've noticed that he never wants lunch.

Since doing the gluten challenge, and noticeing how my stomach never seems empty, always full and bloated, well.....it made me wonder. He has weetbix for breakfast......

If there is a link at all, I wonder if it's being carried by someone with untreated celiac, or if it's when they are first introduced to any gluten containing products. ie if they had any formua, or if the breast milk contained gluten.....

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
