Candida/leaky Gut/ulcer?

16 posts in this topic

I just can't seem to get better.

Everyday, at some part of the day, I get shaky and nauseated. Today I was at the dr. when it happened. She gave me some natural stuff for the nausea which did eventually subside but I am so emotionally drained from feeling this way every day.

I don't know if it's b/c of candida, leaky gut, or an ulcer.

I am going to a new GI doc on Tuesday and I am going to be demanding.

Someone needs to figure out what's wrong with me because it is starting to affect my ability to work.

Does anyone else have these problems? If so, how did you treat them?I'm guessing these things above are my problem..my thyroid was already tested although the doc thinks it could still be the problem.

Help! Any ideas?

Jennifer

I had candida and I know that I had similar symptoms to what you are describing. I had bad nausea with it. Have you been checked yet?

No dr. has actually checked me for candida. I am going to demand they do on Tuesday when I go to my new GI doc.

I get white stuff in my mouth in the mornings and have a tiny bit of "female" candida as well, although it isn't full blown.

I do have the Nystatin that I didn't take b/c it says not to take it on the bottle unless a dr. has diagnosed you with a fungal infection.

SO, I will wait until Tuesday.

I am glad to hear that you had these symptoms, too. Well, not glad for you of course, but glad that it might actually be normal.

You are feeling better now? Did you also get the white stuff in your mouth?

No I did not have candida in the mouth...mine was only intestinal. I do think I did have a tiny bit of "female" candida at one point. I was diagnosed with intestinal candida and did about a little over a month supply of liquid Nystatin.

I am 100% better (unless I am glutened) but that took care of the symptoms I was facing that were not from celiac. They say candida symptoms are similar to ones of celiac.

Definitely have them check you for it. I was mad with my doctors. I had a stool sample in January of 2004 at the same time I was diagnosed with celiac and it showed the candida...my doctor said " I've never seen that before" when he saw the results of candida in the stool and he just overlooked it. If I would have been treated at that point for candida I probably would have my symptoms gone in a shorter time then I did. Gotta babysit these doctors sometimes <_<

Katie-

What all were your symptoms? Is stool the only way to test for candida?

jknnej-

Do you ever take acidophilus? I went through a period of time where I was getting the "female" candida :) I started taking acidophilus and haven't had a problem since. I start taking it the moment I suspect an infection, and I never get one.

Oh, and if I ever HAVE to take an antibiotic for something, I definitely take acidophilus at the same time.

I'm not sure of all the ways they can test for candida. I had a stool test done and they were not even looking for candida but they found that.

My main symptom was nausea...I did have others like low energy and so forth but I think that was contributed to my hyperthyroid. They say that candida symptoms can be like those of celiac symptoms so I am not exactly sure (other then the nausea) what was from celiac and what was from candida.

I have taken acidophilus...I honestly think my biggest problem is that I've been on the pill for almost 11 years. It is time to get off!

I am stopping next week and really looking forward to it.

I have Nystatin and am hopefully going to take it next week if the doc says it's OK. I will probably take it even if he says not to because my other dr gave it to me and she thought it was OK...if at least one dr. agrees with it then it's probably OK or she wouldn't have prescribed it!

I have yeast in my mouth when I wake up and some "female" issues as well. I KNOW I have an overgrowth! It's been this way for about a year, too.

I assume I have it intestinally as well.

The acidophilus is good but it probably won't clear it up until I stop taking the pill so let's hope it works!

I asked the doctor about a yeast overgrowth in my daughter. She was on antibiotics recently and he said she has a yeast overgrowth then. He proceeded to then not validate that by doing no tests and saying to come back in 8 months.

Hmmm. What do you think the oods are that we will ever be back to that office?

I've been trying to find more info about yeast infections and celiac as i'm very intrigued by this as well as curious now if this is why I too had the yeast infection from hell last week. I've had yeast infections on and off since I can remember but have been lucky (compared to those of you who've had the infection constantly, I couldn't imagine. WOW, my heart goes out to ya'll). Anyhow, I came across this article (hope the link works). I'm a little confused on if the Candida Albicans they discuss in the article is the same thing as what we think of as Candida/yeast infection or if it's just a different strain or what. If anyone has any other info about yeast and celiac please share b/c I really want to learn more about the connection between the two. Thanks!

Turtle,

I posted this link a while ago connecting celiac & candida. Here is the important section:

"Now we come to what to me is the most interesting of the recent research regarding celiac. It seems fitting that the research again comes from Holland , where celiac disease was first linked to diet. Dr. Nieuwenhuizen, from the research group TNO Nutrition and Food Research, published a paper in the June, 2003, Lancet. He links celiac disease with Candida albicans. Dr. Nieuwenhuizen, knowing the actual sequence of proteins which trigger celiac disease from the published work of other scientists, had searched the databases available to him through TNO to see if the same sequence existed in other places. It turns out the identical sequence of proteins occur in the cell walls of Candida albicans. [15]"

The website is: http://www.denvernaturopathic.com/news/celiac.html

We are talking about this in the "going off the pill" section too!

Hey Michelle!

Yes, I saw the post in the thread where we're discussing the pill. I posted some there too. Thanks for passing on what you've come across. Amazing isn't it. Oh and I too LOVE tea tree oil.

Hi, i saw this post and wanted to tell you that i also have the white stuff in the mouth, my doc told me that i had celiac from a endoscopy but the blood tests say negative, so i continued to eat wheat and now i still am having the yeast problems in my mouth also, im not sure where to turn either, the docs here dont know enough about celiac or yeast.

Whitelace girl-why didn't your doc put you on a gluten-free diet if he could tell from the 'scope?Did he take biopsies?

Negative bloods do not mean you haven't got coeliac.

My husband had negative bloods,but biopsies showed extensive'villous atrophy'.

My son used to have thrush in the mouth,-and docs gave him'nystatin'(don't know if you have a different brand name for it in the U.S.

If the endoscopy showed damage and was positive then you HAVE celiac and should be on a gluten free diet.

Candida can be linked with celiac too.

the doc told me to go on gluten free doc but they he ended up retiring and i had to go to another gastro, this doc told me that from the blood test that i dont have Celiac. Yes, i had a biopsy and that said postive for Celiac. I guess you could say that since i had the other doc tell me that i dont have Celiac, i have been eating what i want to. I dont have diarrhea anymore but i have problems with sores in the mouth all the time and trying to find a new doc that can help me.

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      I am also IgA deficient. My doc took more blood and looked at 2-3 other markers in the blood work , transglutinase, and 2 others. My biopsy showed blunted cilia in sm intestine, but my IgA was low. He suspected Celiac due to cilia so ordered other blood tests. I also presented atypically, burny stomach and reflux...and very little else.
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      If you have Celiac Disease, and you are IgA deficient, what do they check on your labs to make sure you are not being "glutened"?

      Hi again Richie, A lot of coeliacs have a problem with coffee, maybe you do too. It could explain the shakes you describe. I am sensitive to coffee, and haven't touched caffeine since last summer. (The detox lasted for 10 days and it wasn't pleasant, so if you ever give it up, do it gradually).  Sometimes when you're intolerant to something, when you have it, it makes you feel 'better' but it doesn't last and usually end up worse, it's like a drug - and in the case of caffeine it is. I also take a daily probiotic (gluten free and dairy free etc)., which is good for healing the gut.

      Cristiana and Flowerqueen, I haven't been officially diagnosed as Celiac but I had a DNA test in March 2015 which revealed I had the Celiac gene on both sides so it was advised that I have a test to see if I did have it. I didn't but I went off gluten immediately and haven't "knowingly" eaten it since. Before the DNA test I didn't have the nausea and trembling type feelings that I do now but I occasionally got the shortness of breath which I used to put down to being a smoker. (I quit almost 16 years ago) Anyway, this morning I woke with the nausea feeling, the trembling, loss of appetite, feeling of doom again but it happens so intermittently. I do have some unavoidable stress in my life all of a sudden so maybe it's all connected some how. But on the plus side my bowel movements have returned to normal and I go often especially after waking and having coffee. (Oh, and Cristiana don't worry about tmi with me. You would have to try pretty hard to offend me and nobody has done it yet. haha) I always think the worse to. The internet and Google are great but information overload becomes a real possibility creating some frightening scenarios. It's just interesting that the coffee with the MCT Oil (Brain Octane is the actual name) and butter makes me start feeling better and the nausea, trembling, anxiety seem to be extinguished by it but coffee with low fat milk doesn't although I do get more energy from it. I did read somewhere that MCT Oil was good for gut health though and if I had to describe it it would be like it just smooths over all the bad stuff with a nice soft lining.  It was recommended in my DNA test that I have more fats in my diet and low processed foods but I occasionally have gluten-free biscuits, gluten-free ice-cream (my true weakness) and gluten-free weet-bix. I've checked most of these items ingredients and they are pretty good. There is a lot of gluten free rubbish out there though which I completely avoid. Thanks GFinDC for your reply. I was going to speak to my Naturopath when I see her about Immune Health. My plan usually involves the Liver Tonic I mentioned above and heavy on the L-Glutamine which, apparently, is supposed to be excellent for gastrointestinal health but I'm not going to supplement with anything just yet until I get my blood work done and see if it reveals any deficiencies. I'm suspecting Iron though. Because I've had recent tests all coming back good I'm thinking a possible scenario would be a die-off effect I've heard of where all the bad bacteria have been killed off but your body can't rid itself of them quick enough so you actually feel or get worse before you get better. That's where the detox strategy comes in and I'm assuming replacing them with Good Bacteria via Probiotics. Again, this is what I have read in the past but it does seem to make sense in some cases. I do feel better in having found these forums though.  
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      You are doing well.  We didn't have a "normal" tTG for 6 years and were also very strict.  Kiddo was dx with hypothyroid as well and tTG fell a lot after getting on meds for that but still didn't normalize.  Finally cam down within the last 6 months (this after a trip to THE Celiac Dr. several years ago).  I wish we had done a DGP much earlier and I had pushed for that sooner.  I would start there and see what happens.     Sounds like you're doing everything right though. Sometimes it just takes time.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
