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 :)

    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Yes Sugarcube, i think i had a blood test called TTG IGA ANTIBODY So what does that actually mean?   Why didn't they do a full celiac panel? or is that the next step, but my doctor didn't mention it. I'm just gonna keep eating as normal up to the biopsy, so i get the correct diagnosis.  
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I received the amended records in the mail. I don' think the doctor even read my email with the amendment request since she only corrected one statement I never said...the statement I gave as example while briefly talking to her on the phone the other day. So, I called the office to inquire why the other statements I never said were not corrected. Fortunately, the other staff member answered the phone. I'm surprised she told me this, but it was the best therapy for me so maybe she was meant to say it! She told me she knows what I mean about that one worker because she has to deal with it, too! She said a new office manager starts next week and she gave me her direct emal address to complain about that worker. 
    • Received Results. Looks like not Celiac?
      You've all been so helpful in guiding me what to do.  I did just receive my blood work and have an appt. with my doctor next week.  I wanted her to check it because I have lived a life of being extremely exhausted, migraines/headaches, and anxiety.  My thyroid is balanced and I am healthy (other blood results that were off were low platelet, low protein, high A/G ratio).  I am not good at reading results, but it appears negative to celiac, maybe next steps are trying a gluten-free diet for sensitivity? Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgA 2 units 0 - 19 units Negative 0 - 19
      Weak Positive 20 - 30
      Moderate to Strong Positive >30 Deamidated Gliadin Abs, IgG 2 units 0 - 19 units Negative 0 - 19
      Weak Positive 20 - 30
      Moderate to Strong Positive >30 t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 U/mL 0 - 3 U/mL Negative 0 - 3

      Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified
      as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstr-
      ated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99%

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Hello, This is my first post. My 12yr old daughter was diagnosed with ?celiac disease. Her blood test was positive, genetic screen positive and her biopsy abnormal but they are not ready to say she is celiac because her villi are damaged but not gone. We are to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet for 6 months. So far (1 month) we have adjusted well. I am learning to bake again using many many many different flours lol. However I cannot find a good sandwich bread. There are good tasting breads with little or no fiber or heavy dense breads that don't make good sandwiches or toast. She has become very constipated on this gluten-free diet because of the low fiber content of the cereal,rice and breads. We were told no oats for the first year? and no or little dairy for the first month. She has been on a low histamine diet for 4 months now as well. My question is what is the best way to make gluten free bread, oven or bread maker? Does anyone have a good healthy recipe for sandwich bread that a kid would like? We normally eat a soft 5 grain bread before gluten-free. Thank you!
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Thanks so much, gluten-free,  in my hypchondriacal panic I saw that website!  It is good to have an endorsement from a celiac.   I remember seeing quite a few reassuring stories in it along the lines that you describe. Funny isn't as because I now feel far less inclined to eat large amounts of carbohydrate now I have cut back a bit.   It seems the more sugar I ate, the more I wanted to eat.

      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.
