So Over The B Vitamins
0

4 posts in this topic

I originally noticed that Red Bull (have small can maybe once a week or less) started causing me some nausea and offness, so I stopped those thinking it was something in there. Noticed that with the B-100 I got the same feeling. Low to midgrade nausea, no decrease in fatigue in any way. Even the B-50 and half of one of those causes it regardless of the amount or type (fat vs protein) or amount of water or time of day. I believe I recall feeling the same way with B12 by itself.

I used to think this feeling was from some CC or "healing" phase, but nope. Only happens when I take the Bs. I think a lot of people may not realize that adding stuff like supplements can wreck and already sensitive GI system and you may not be able to tell if you are healing from the gluten because of that supplement response.

Eventually I may get tested or try it in many months from now, but for now, so long B vitamins. Enjoy the toilet flush so I will not take you again without remembering the ick you cause.

Well, I have preached to the empty choir about high- dosing B vitamins without cause, but no one wants to hear me.

They most certainly cause stomach distress and CAN ACCUMULATE in the body and cause toxic levels. Too much B6 will cause parasthesia for example. I had burning nerve pain from too much B-12 and B-6.

No one wants to hear it. Yet, I am living proof.

My doc saw my extremely high results and said STOP TAKING THOSE RIGHT NOW!!!

All that burning and nausea went away. My levels are normal now.

Everyone should get tested for B vitamin deficiency BUT if you are NOT deficient, you need no more than what is in a good multivitamin.

I agree with you completely. I had to make that post so that it was real in my head. I kept going back to the Bs and D every now and then so "they would help me heal" with the same result every time...wrecked system. Vitamin D and the Bs are very, very hard on a lot of us, but they are a bit nudged at times. That fatigue may simply be your worn out body or poor sleep and not a deficiency. You just do not know and taking lots of one vitamin will never answer that questtion.

I hope this does not come off sounding too negative, but I do not think anyone who sees the physician and has been diagnosed for Celiac should be megadosing on any vitamin or taking more than a multi without a test. It just does not really make sense to me. I kind of get it if you are just not going to the doctor although it is ill-advised. The thing is that if you already see the doctor...well..while you are there. Once you have that test, you know for sure what you need or do not need and whether or not it is worth taxing your system to take.

I agree. I tried the Red Bull when it first came out & within minutes of drinking it I got indigestion to die for. Tried it a few more times to be sure it was the Red Bull. It was. I quit.

I find that multivitamins all seem to contain hundreds & hundreds of % over what you need. Why do they go so gonzo on them? Seems like overkill to me.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
