One of the symptoms I had that I thought was use to celiac was constant mouth sores. Usually behind my back teeth, on the roof of my mouth, or on my lower lip in the front. Well, I've even off gluten for eight days and now I have another mouth sore. Do you think that means that the sores are unrelated to gluten? I'm pretty confident that I was not accidentally "glutened".

Try dry mouth toothpaste (check for gluten).

I also used to put some Dr. Tichenor's on the mouth sores or wash my mouth out with it (dilute it for mouthwash and check for gluten). I would put some straight on a cotton swab, and hold it on the sore. Burns like holy heck but it numbs it and would stop it from getting bigger.

And acidic foods make them worse.,.

The reason I was eventually diagnosed with celiac was because of mouth sores. My dentist took one look and told me to get tested. That was 3 months ago and I still periodically get sore gums and mouth - not sure if from cc or because the celiacs is still active. I am using Biotene mouth wash and it seems to help.

I think eight days is too soon to really conclude much of anything.

Are you talking canker sores? I have been gluten-free for 8 months and am still having trouble with canker sores.

I don't think that they are canker sores. The are white in the middle with little bubble blisters and then red around the outside. They are terribly painful and irritating.

Sorry, I'm from the pre-computer era, I meant to say that my sores looked like that too and I was told by the dentist that it was a sign of active celiac or other autoimmune disease

I had recurring mouth/gum sores before DX.

As Richard has suggested, it may be too early for them to have disappeared just yet. You may still have them pop up for a few weeks-months.

It does not necessarily mean you were glutened or that they are related to anything else.

Give it some time. Mine are all gone now. :)

Try some L-Lysine. It's an amino acid and very helpful for canker sores.

Thanks IrishHeart, seems like I am contniually thanking you for the info. Funny, now that you mention Llysyne, I actually stopped taking it because doc said it was a waste of money and now that I think about it, that's when I started having problems with canker sores.

I did some research on canker sores online and it was suggested that sodium lauryl sulfate in toothpaste was the problem but my toothpaste does not have this. So I will pick up some more Lysyne and see iff that takes ace of the problem.

(chuckling) most docs pooh-pooh supplements--which is odd because they give us Vitamin D when we are low, B-12 when we are low, etc.--so obviously, supplementing is sometimes necessary. We do need to pick and choose of course, because over-supplementing is not beneficial either.

Celiacs are low in essential amino acids because of prolonged malabsorption. L-lysine is an amino acid. I had success using it--it was suggested by a friend who had awful canker sores her whole life--and it worked. Avoid OJ and tomato juice for a while. Give it a few weeks. If it works, great! Just a thought. Cheers, IH

It took months for me to stop getting canker sores. Eight days is nothing. The gluten is barely even getting out of your body.

Good to know that eight days isn't long enough. I'm fine waiting... I just was concerned that maybe it meant I was wrong in connecting the two (sores & celiac). Thanks everyone!
