Anyone want to make guesses as to which AI disease he may have? Never heard of a lupus like AI disease!

That is interesting...the article doesn't mention treatment so speculation is hard...I believe gluten intolerance and/or Celiac Disease is involved in many if not all autoimmune diseases. My daughter had been diagnosed with Lupus, RA, Sjogren's, Fibro, etc before I was diagnosed Celiac. She has had improvement with some of those since removing gluten and is now working on isolating other possible food intolerances.

Thanks for sharing...going to google him to see if there have been other references to his AI condition.

I really hate it when celebs disclose a health issue and then leave you hanging with the diagnosis....especially with AI diseases. I agree that if you have multiples or even one AI disease, then you better look for Celiac or do a dietary trial. I ended up with 4, like your daughter, and it was all because I went too long with undiagnosed Celiac. I will admit they are far better since going gluten-free. I do not do the Tweet thing but maybe someone should tweet this guy about Celiac.....kidney failure and blood clots are nothing to mess with!

Just read another article about him. He did indeed have an enlarged heart in addition to the kidney and blood clot issues. Just a guess, but I think he probably was diagnosed with SLE, not just "Lupus Like".

I read "an undiagnosed condition similar to Lupus" to mean that his doctors know it's autoimmune and systemic, but they don't know exactly what's going on.

I posted this in another topic, but antiphospholipid antibody syndrome is autoimmune and can cause blood clots.

Well...that's nothing new with doctors and autoimmune disease, is it? ;)

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
