Does Having Celiac Make It Harder For The Body To Clear A Viral Infection

4 posts in this topic

Does it? I've had problems with my ear for over a year and it all started after a virus!

Also previously had issues with warts. Is it possible your virus based things do not get defeated by a person with Celiac who has a repressed immune system,?

I don't have any good answers but I have major problems myself trying to overcome every virus and cold bug that comes my way. It seems to go away for everyone else in a few days. For me it takes a week or more.

Hoping you feel better. Soon!

For your ear you might want to try a drop of lavender essential oil in a tablespoon of olive oil. Drip it into your ear and plug it overnight with cotton or a piece of flannel. I find that really helps with ear eaches that get out of control.

Lavender is naturally antiviral and is great for all sorts of healthy benefits, burns and such.

Hope that helps. :D

Viruses are tough. But we would all be very sick all the time if our bodies couldn't defeat them. There are viruses all around. And not just in our ears, they would spread. I am sorry you are still having trouble with your ears. Are you off dairy and gluten now? Staying off the things that make you sick is important if you want to get better. I don't remember if you had a dairy problem, but you might try avoiding it awhile and see if it helps.

I have had warts on my feet for a long time and am gluten sensitive. Plantar warts are a pain. A lot of people who are sensitive seem to get odd viruses that won't go away more frequently. Very interesting.

    • I have not taken him to a dermatologist. I have dapsone, which I put on the rash, it always clears up. I have it for another family member. But then I started reading about celiac and all these dots are out there but not connected.  The next time he has the bumps, I am going to take him in. In the mean time, I am trying to find a dermatologist who understands the condition. I don't want my kid to have celiac. And I kinda feel crazy for thinking he may have a gluten issue but with it in my family and him having these other things, I want to be dilligent.   i will read up on the test you suggested. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond everyone.   
    • I tested positive to deamidated gliadin in August at a hospital. My old GI tested me using gliadin (the test listed on your result) in September and it was negative. Literally the next day, my new GI tested for deamidated gliadin again and it was positive (I was unaware the hospital scheduled an appointment with the new GI for follow up).  If you still suspect it, Google deamidated gliadin, print out the Mayo clinic lab info and circle the part where it says they have discontinued the use of gliadin in favor of the deamidated gliadin.  Has he seen a dermatologist?
    • He has a rash on his fingers from time to time. Angular Chetelis. Mouth sores. So skinny. Anxious. 
    • The blood test results are negative (and he had the complete panel).  No GI issues (per your posting).  What makes you suspect celiac disease?  
    • Hi WS, So sorry to hear your not feeling quite right just yet. I can relate! I believe in doing whatever is needed for you to be able to come to terms with the diagnosis, which it sounds like was given to you already but if you still need further evidence then do whatever is needed!  In regards to food, I am a pescatarian so I also don't eat meat but I get my protein from some seafood, eggs, beans, natural protein replacements, exct...I was vegetarian and found it extremely difficult on the gluten-free diet for my lifestyle. I found probiotics have really helped me but even now I still feel off days with my digestion and I think that just comes with having a digestive disease. I know what foods trigger it (Yes gluten-free foods!) and try to stay away. I remember the first month or so I was very sick from removing gluten, almost like withdrawal symptoms. Probably because I ate a lot of it prior so it was a shock. 3 1/2 years later, I still feel weak and light headed if I don't eat enough carbs/protein. Celiacs are known to have deficiencies already so your nutrition intake/supplements are super important! I hope your able to find peace with your health and get the answers your looking for!
