Does Coffee And Strong Tea Put Anyone Over The Edge And Give You Celiac Like Symptoms?

8 posts in this topic

I hate it when I don't know what does it and after I was doing so well. Have many people given up coffee, soda,

tea? I went to the gym and was fine and then came home and had a diet coke and the rest of my morning coffee and a few sips of yesterday's tea. Then felt girgly, but wanted to get take out for the kids. We went to pick it up and it hit like a train. I had to take 2 imodium while there. I hate that when I was doing so good. Sometimes I get lax after a span of doing so well. My dd said her stomach was bothering her so maybe it is a germ in our house. We had a fun night of drinking at my aunts a few night back. That could have made me more apt for an issue. Who knows. I also ate some semispoiled sunflower sprouts. I hate taking imodium because then it may plug for a few days and then have this same problem. I'll try to skip the coffee tomorrow. lol

On a better note, Happy new year everyone. I wish everyone a symptom free year. (In our dreams, I know. But I can wish it anyway.) :)

I have been caffeine-free since approximately 1972. I drink only herbal/fruit teas. An occasional decaf coffee. Try eliminating the caffeine and see if it helps. Those things you mention, while hard to give up, are not giving you any nutrition anyway :) But if your daughter feels bad too, you may have gotten some cross-contamination somewhere.

Its the caffine probably. I generally don't do it as it makes me wide awake. I dropped it completely after my GERD got bad. I've yet to try it again.

I had to give up coffee and tea and caffeine sodas 9 years ago. I now have a couple of small teas a week but get a bit of reflux. I don't know if it is related to the celiac, but I uncovered it when doing an elimination diet when I also lost wheat. Wish I had known then what gluten is...

Actually I had a similar reaction myself yesterday. I drank a coconut latte thinking that I usually do okay with little occasional cups of coffee...but boom, right afterwards and for hours after that, I had C, D and some pretty horrible abdominal pain. At first I blamed it on the caffeine, but since then, I am thinking it was either the milk or the syrup.

Both alcohol and coffee cause intestinal permeability to increase (leaky gut) and we are consequently more sensitive to gluten, lactose and fructose (sugar). I gues, given the recent New year celebrations, we will see more stories like this.

I sometimes get very bad stomach cramps and D after drinking coffee or black tea. It happens about one out of 10 times and mostly when I don't put milk, other than that I haven't the slightest clue why I get this reaction. It's not my gluten symptoms so no cc involved.

Coffee is acidic and hurts my stomach if I don't add a bit of milk.

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • 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.
