Hi guys,

I've read a few threads about some celiac sufferers, and feeling chills as a symptom. I do also have this. My question is regarding the nature of the chills, like were they induced by anything in particular? For instance, touch or cold? Thanks for any replies, would be very appreciated.

Hi Jonoh, can't really help you there as I believe my chills are brought on by an underactive thyroid....(mind me living in the UK and it being -5 today doesnt help ! :( )

Have you been tested for celiac?

Have you any other symptoms?

Oh gosh, loads of other symptoms. Bloating, swinging between D/C, sometimes suffer from a dry mouth, abdominal pains - which aren't so frequent nowadays, but all through school, I'd get horrible pains EVERY morning, dry skin, constant chapped lips, muscular/joint pains, these itchy bumps/blisters (which I suspect MAY be mild DH, derm appointment soon) and the list goes on lol.

I haven't been tested for Celiac yet, I'm going tomorrow to get my b12, folate, calcium levels and stuff run. I imagine if it is celiac, there'd be some sort of abnormalities in these tests? Also, my brother also suffers from a lot of the bowel symptoms that I do, which make me lean toward celiac as I know there is some sort of genetic aspect to the disease.

I have had some bloods done before, including my thyroid, which came back normal. However, I have read about needing to get a full panel done or something, as there's a lot of inaccuracy with these tests?

I was also diagnosed with a UTI recently, which I've been told is abormal for a young male (I'm 20), I was wondering if there's anyway this may have a correlation to celiac? I've read a bit about kidney stones and celiac, but I dunno. I guess the ultrasound will tell me what's going on. Thanks for the reply, by the way :)

Well I'm pretty new to this myself as Ive only recently been dx but Im sure you'll find lots of info on here and get some response.

But as far as I'm aware, if you do have celiac then you probably have a weak immune system /vitamin deficiency etc so theres many many symptoms of celiac.

May be worth asking them to test for celiac (full panel) when they do the other tests (you need to have been eating gluten for a few weeks though or you can get a false negative).

Good luck with the testing and let us know how it goes ...

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
