Blood In Stools And Coeliacs
0

8 posts in this topic

I began with rather abit of blood coating my stools about 4 months ago, it was only that much once and since then its only been a small bit. I spoke to my doctor who sent me for blood tests straight away 3 months ago. I tested positive for coeliacs. Still waiting for results from endoscopy but dr said my small intestines look fine. (not had biopsies back yet). Regardless of this he says because of highly positive blood test he will be diagnosing me with coeliacs. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks and am still having a small amouny of blood on the surface of my stools every other day, like a small line. My GP is still saying this coeliacs. But should it still be happening every other day after 2 weeks?! Has anyone else had anything like this? Or blood in stools at all. Im only 20 and very worried so would be nice to hear if anyone has had anything like this.

Is the blood fresh and bright?

Has anyone told you whether you have perhaps a hemorrhoid or fissure or possibly diverticulosis? I have experienced the stripe of blood, never been sure if it's the little internal hemorrhoid they found, or related to diverticulosis. Are you getting plenty of fiber/fresh fruits and veggies? Not necessarily saying that is what you have, it is just one possibility. I'm definitely not a medical professional, just offering one more thing to think about.

I agree strongly with this. Chances are it is hemmies but you really want to find out for sure.

I had blood in the stool also. It stopped after I Was gluten free a while. I also had black stool which is said to be caused by blood.

Since you have only been gluten free for 2 weeks it is not surprising that you aren't completely healed. Especially since it is fairly common for people new to the diet to make mistakes and not realize they are eating gluten. Gluten can be found in lots of processed foods and is not always easy to identify. It is good to stick with a whole foods diet when starting out, and also to drop dairy and soy for a few months.

Whole foods are simply foods that have not been processed or single ingredient foods. Fresh meats, fish, chicken, eggs, fresh or single ingredient frozen fruits and veggies, potatoes, plain and wild rice are examples of whole foods.

Your tummy may tolerate cooked veggies and fruits the easiest at first and if you haven't been eating a lot of fruits and veggies increase them slowly. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of both soluable and insoluable fiber if you like them.

    • 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!
