Can Celiac Cause A Positive Ana Test?
Posted 21 August 2011 - 07:40 AM
glutenfree since 6/2011. sick for 30 years.
borderline blood test, negative biopsy.
SEVERELY sensitive celiac with DH. sensitive to contact and ingestion.
asthma (was severe; improved exponentially after 6/11)
spina bifida & childhood SCI at L4/L5 (possibly complicated by weak bones)
countless fractures and infections.
i once listed over 100 symptoms or conditions that improved or were eliminated after 6/11.
very vegan. and, of course, i've also discovered some other food allergies.

I have Celiac's and Hashimoto's. I had a positive ANA in May of this year.A breakdown of the testing showed negative for Lupus. My endocrinologist feels the positive ANA was because my Hashimoto antibodys were over 900 at that time.
I have been wondering this. Just a general question, not for me personally.
I am retesting in Nov.
So to me it would stand to reason that if your Celiac antibodys were high enough it could cause a positive ANA.
Of course , this is just my personal opinion and is best to ask your doc questions like this if you feel it is an issue
Gluten free Oct/09
Soy free Nov/10
numerous additional intolerances,, i.e. If it tries to kill me I do not eat it .
After 40+ years of misdiagnoses I was diagnosed with:
Dermatitis Herpetiformis : Positive DH biopsy...... Celiac :based on DH biopsy and diet response.
Osteoporosis before age 50
Hashimoto's thyroiditis disease .
Diagnosed type 2 Diabetes
Gilbert's Syndrome , confirmed by gene testing
