Things I Have Found Out
0

12 posts in this topic

Havn't posted for a while. Its been a busy summer.

For a recap: I tested positive for Ciliac disease in just one area in a blood test 6 mos. ago. I have been gluten free since then, barring a few mistakes.

My symptoms were horrible sore and receeding gums which I had to control using

prescribed steroid rinces ect. Which weren't working that well in the end.

I just had a checkup from my original doctor who noticed a big positive change in my condition. I told him about the diet, and that I was only using the medication sparingley. He suggested I stay on the gluten-free diet since its working, which of course I will.

What I have found out is, its a slow healing process. Stick with the diet and be patient.

That is very true :) I'm glad that you're noticing improvements on the diet.

Are the receding gums a part of celiac disease? I have just been told that I need a gum graft for my receding gums. I wonder if there is a celiac disease connection?

My sister, who will not get tested for celiac disease, has all ready had a dental bone graft and gum grafting at 30 some years of age. If malabsorbtion of nutrients is a cause, then there is an obvious connection.

I think I read somewhere that there is a connection. My teeth shifted some after developing celiac disease. All those high school years in braces and now not much to show for it! :angry:

Yes, I believe it is. I have oral Lichen Planus, which I believe was brought on by Ciliac disease. I had a gum graft on one side before I was diagnosed with celiac disease. It seemed the graft went well at first. But then the graft site and donor site seemed to be attacked by the LP disease. After being on the Gluten free diet. Things are way better. I wish I would have discovered to gluten-free diet before having the skin grafts.

Thanks for the replies. I'm really not looking forward to the gumk graft. If only I had gone gluten-free earlier. But that's only if there is a connection.

I have receding gums too! I never thought of there being a connection to celiac disease. My sister had a graft but I haven't had to do it yet. Hopefully it will never get to that point....

Thanks for the information about the gum graft. I had one years ago, was threatened with one on the other side. The one that was done is receding and probably needs to be done again. I am newly "diagnosed" and so this information will be helpful if the new dentist brings this up again.

If you use alot of antacids...this too will receed your gums.

Things like Prilosec, Zantac, and Pepsid will. I would recommend to use them just when you need them and not overuse.

I've never used an antacid. No one in my family has receding gums and I have had a dental plan my whole life. So the gluten connection I find very interesting.

    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
    • Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.   I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
