Kidney Stones Linked To Celiac Disease?

29 March 2011 - 12:31 PM

I am the only one in my family that has been diagnosed with Celiac. I am 99.9% positive that others in my family do have gluten intolerance since they still have the same symptoms as I had before going gluten-free. My father has most all of the symptoms that I had when I was eating gluten(bloating, IBS,chronic fatigue,achy joints,etc), but to date he has not decided to get tested and/or try a gluten-free diet for a period of time to see if his symptoms subside. He has had severe kidney stone issues for decades. He has had several procedures to break them up so he can pass them, but he keeps getting more of them. A recent ultrasound revealed one of his kidneys is full of stones, and now he is getting pain in his other kidney. When he is having a kidney stone attack, he will do ANYTHING to get rid of the pain and most of the time ends up in the hospital, and they send him home with a bottle of narcotic pain killers. I have researched online and have found a few articles that seem to show a correlation between certain types of kidney stones and celiac.

My question is this: Do any celiacs on this site experience kidney stones or have you experienced them in the past?? Does anyone have any personal experience or knowledge of a correlation between celiac and kidney stones?? Any good links that may help explain the correlation?? I appreciate whatever info you guys can share with me.

Gluten Free Tobacco Cessation Products?

25 March 2011 - 03:52 PM

Now that i am gluten-free, I am more intrested in my overall health. I want to quit smoking cigarettes. i am a heavy smoker and in the past i have used the nicotine patch and nicotine gum. i prefer to use the gum, since last time i had bad side effects from the patch(hives and nausea). I feel like i need a nicotine replacement product because i am not ready for nicotine withdrawal.

In the past, i have used Equate Nicotine Gum(Walmarts generic brand). Does anyone have any info on nicotine gum and whether it contains gluten? Are any brands of nicotine gum gluten free?? Any info would be appreciated.

Severe Depression/ Thyroid Issues Linked To Celiac Disease?

13 March 2011 - 04:40 PM

I have been gluten free now for 3 weeks and I am feeling wonderful, better than I have felt in decades. Aches and pains have diminished. Brain fog has lifted and I feel like a different person. I was diagnosed with hyper thyroid about 8 months ago(before I found out that I suffered from celiac), and am on thyroid medication. Additionally, I have suffered from severe chronic depression since I was 15 years old(I am now 45 years old), and I remain on several anti-depressant drugs prescribed by my psychiatrist. Since I have been gluten free(and lactose free) for the last 3 weeks, my depression has lifted and I am happy and stress free. It is nothing short of a miracle. My question is this: Is it possible that in the future I will be able to stop taking my thyroid medication as well as my anti-depressant medications?? Does anyone have any success stories where they found they no longer need anti-depressants and/or thyroid medication?
