The following article talks about the difference between gluten sensitivity and Celiac but could someone please break it down a little? I think I get it but I want to make sure.

http://www.celiac.com/articles/22491/1/Study-Shows-Gluten-Sensitivity-and-Celiac-Disease-Clinically-Different/Page1.html

Just a quick break down of the last part...please?

(Does it mean that, with Celiac, the immune response is more along the lines of a response to, say, German Measles which is a 'permanent' response and continues - as opposed to gluten sensitivity which would be more of a temporary response that could, after time, subside?)

well that was very interesting! and a little complicated i agree. i didnt read about a temporary vs. permanent like u did- all i could understand was that one with Celiac would have more of a leaky gut- where has one with Gluten intolerance could have all the symptoms and inflammation- but no break in the gut barrier. and also there was a difference in the mucosal lining. that's all i could translate. very interesting. i wonder too if Zonulin (sp?) is something more associated with celiacs- and not present in gluten intolerants. isnt that a hormone or something that increases intestinal permeability??

this is so fascinating

'Zonulin is a protein that participates in tight junctions between cells of the wall of the digestive tract.'

Looked it up for this...I'm going back to read again.

I would like someone to give a monologue on this that I could understand.. ;) . Not being a researcher or biology major... I am not sure about the big picture.

I don't see anything there that would make me believe that gluten intolerance, whether celiac disease or not, would go away with time.

Research into the role that zonulin may play in the celiac disease response is ongoing. It appears that there may be possible way to prevent the autoimmune reaction. It will not change the underlying condition, but may treat the symptoms to the extent that the worries we have about being hurt by small amounts of gluten are no longer a concern. This is a controversial topic that has been discussed in several topics here.

The study also supports the characterization of gluten sensitivity as a condition associated with prevalent gluten-induced activation of innate, rather than adaptive, immune responses in the absence of detectable changes in mucosal barrier function.

The innate immune system is the one that always responds the same. Not like a measles thing.

LOL at the one poster in that comment thread. "You're not a, and quit calling yourself that, but I am.... " paraphrased.

It probably never occurs to her that increasing the consumption pool of customers for gluten free foods, increases her potential for choice in selecting grocery and restaurant items to consume. From an anthropology standpoint, this may increase her chances of survival but does not seem to influence her attitude ....

wiki: innate immune system

defends host from infections, provide immediate defense, found in all classes of plant and animal life, evolutionary thought to be older form of basic defense system

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innate_immune_system

wiki: adaptive immune system

"The adaptive immune response provides the vertebrate immune system with the ability to recognize and remember specific pathogens (to generate immunity), and to mount stronger attacks each time the pathogen is encountered. It is adaptive immunity because the body's immune system prepares itself for future challenges."

So actually, the innate response is a mute point when talking about Celiac because the body is ALWAYS going to respond for this condition (adaptive). The question of an innate response abating is for a gluten intolerant person and dependent on whether they are eating to heal their intolerance which would probably be due to leaky gut. By GOVE! I think I've GOT it!

It was that last part I was fuzzy on. (or am I still fuzzy.. :blink: Hope not...)

I know this has been chewed and spit out many times here and I am very appreciative of the longtime members who answer the same questions.. over and over.. and over.. and uber....

(It does bear fruit though...)

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
