I think I am in the process of having one pass. Please tell me that kidney stones are not one of the many symptoms of celiac disease.

Usually it's a result of dehydration but it seems like many people with Celiac/gluten-tolerance have kidney stones. I did but it was right before I started have symptoms.

I drink a ton of water. This is all so weird for me. I sometimes feel like the doctors are not telling me everything.

There are four types of kidney stone. Do you know which kind you have? Is this something new to you, or have you passed stones before?

By "ton of water" can you say about how much that is? Do you drink a lot of other beverages such as coffee or soda?

I am not sure what type it is. It is something new. And I mostly drink water and green tea. I do drink a lot of Smart Water, and refill the bottles. Maybe 2 liters or so a day.

Kidney stones can be one of the symptoms of celiac disease. Your body tries harvesting the calcium out of your bones to make up for the calcium it's not absorbing in the gut. The blood is filtered through the kidneys to regulate the calcium levels in the bloodstream. Guess where the extra ends up. :o:blink::ph34r:

If this is your problem, (there are other types of kidney stone formation causes) then going gluten free and taking a calcium supplement like calcium citrate helps (along with magnesium and a B vitamin complex). Don't take "Tums," which is calcium carbonate, that can make it worse. My young adulthood was really interesting, as doctors were telling me to either avoid calcium or take calcium. :unsure:

    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time. 
    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
