Can Gluten Cause Problems With Celiac Pregnancy
0

3 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone, I'm new here. I'm an atypical celiac who was diagnosed almost a year ago (after 5+years of thinking I was just allergic to wheat). My 2 yo son and brother have recently been diagnosed as well.

A restaurant mixed up my order a few days ago and I was sick for 24 hours, though not with diarrhea. I think it's ok, since I was a gluten-eating celiac my first pregnancy and everything turned out ok (other than his baby tooth enamel which is a bit weak), I just have a tendency to worry during pregnancy...

As an atypical celiac, diarrhea and weightloss are not major problems for me, I tend to gain weight and get constipated more often. My other symptoms are the most potent, (depression, anxiety, joint pain, thyroid trouble) perhaps because I don't get the gluten right out of my system.

Odd thing about this pregnancy, is my body is less forgiving of me, my celiac symptoms are much more pronounced, I'm much more sensitive, and my food allergies are enough to drive me nuts. My biggest goal is to avoid triggering my immune system as much as possible, but it seems to be on high alert. Just the opposite of my first pregnancy.

I think you and your baby should be fine. My G.I. dr. told me that I should not eat out until the baby comes. And that I should get my blood levels checked monthly for deficinces. My insurance would not pay for that so I never did the baby seems to be growing fine anyways. But I do try not to eat out. Of course it is hard and I do eat out at places that have a gluten-free menu. Congratulations by the way! I hope you start to feel better.

KayJay...is that your greyhound I have the exact same one. My Culver is male..and 10 years old in July. Anyway I am about to try to conceive my 2nd ...my daughter is going to be 5 and I got diagnosed last year with Celiac. I am looking for Folic acid and Calcium supplements...I have mild osteopenia any suggestions. As for symptoms I find that Milk products around my menstrual cycle especially will cause similar symptoms to gluten oopses. Good luck.

Virginia :)

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
