Liver Spots?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hello folks,

This might sound a little odd... but...

Was wondering if anybody here with Celiac/gluten intolerance and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome noticed that they rather suddenly manifested "liver spots" (brown freckle-like marks) on the backs of their hands, wrists or fingers?

Had always thought this was a marker of "old age," but when I got C.F.S. in my 30s, my hands, fingers and wrists suddenly had these "old" markers on them. Have never found any reason for them to have appeared and they've never gone away. (Mayo Clinic suggests they're mainly caused by exposure to sun (see link below), but I wonder about that since they are ONLY on my hands and appeared almost overnight. They are definitely permanent and really quite large!)

Hulda Clark seemed to think the spots have something to do with "parasites"?!

And at least one online site does make a connection between the spots and liver function:

Another person thinks the spots are related to "liver overload":

Wondering if anybody else has had similar experience with so-called "liver spots"? Would be interesting to "compare notes."

Thanks.

Only thing I can share is that I had brown spots that looked like liver spots show up overnight. One morning I was showering and looked down to see my hands spotted with them. I freaked out! I had my sister look at them (she has had some removed) and she agreed that they looked like sun spots but couldn't explain the sudden onset. I did some googling and found that sometimes a chemical reaction with lemon (I think that what is was) and sunlight can cause them. I had been preparing a salad with lemon the day before. In my case, they resolved in about a week. Completely random experience.

Interesting theory I'd like to know too if related to Celiac ?

I've developed them too the past few months and thought just sun spots, but odd now I think about how they've just come about now ............ hhhmmmmmm

I have Celiac Sprue and lots of liver spots. Exposure to sun does make tham darker and I can bleach out the color by taking parasite killing herbs - but the color comes back over time. Hulda Clark called these 'fluke spots' and from my years of experience in doing parasite exams in labs and further reading there is evidence that she was correct. One person using a modified Hulda Clark's zapper was able to eradicate his fluke spots although he thought that there was also a virus present in addition to the parasite. The usual fluke live cycle has a snail as an intermediate host and the fluke immature forms cause pigmented lesions in the snails. In humans, Flukes immature forms/larvae from ova which have hatched in the intestine can migrate to other parts of the body and it seems that some migrate to the skin. Humans carry several kinds of flukes in the intestine, liver and bile system and kidneys. Some flukes can burrow through the shin from infected water and water plants. Fluke ova are ingested in under cooked meat and raw fish. There are both herbal and medical treatments which are effective for flukes in the body but usually do not eradicate fluke spots. One herbal treatment uses a tincture of green black walnuts. I used this on fluke spots on one hand but not the other and it bleached out the color on the treated hand and now have fewer fluke spots on that hand.

Interesting responses. Thanks for your input.

Mari, I often get "sore spots" (reddish inflamed areas that are sensitive and painful) right on my knuckle areas. I noticed when I take BLACK WALNUT HULLS, these areas disappear almost overnight! Black Walnut is a blood cleanser and is rich in silica; is often included in "parasite-cleansing" formulas. (Funny: That sounds like you're giving parasites a bath! LOL)

Anyway, have noticed that the red inflamed spots go away and joints/knuckles no longer ache EVERY time I take as little as ONE Black Walnut Capsule (would take it more frequently but am allergic to the gelatin capsule and mixing the b.w. contents with a "carrier" like apple sauce seems like a hassle, so don't do it often); but the so-called liver spots seem permanent. They never fade on their own; may have to try some topical treatments to see if that makes a difference...

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
