In Topic: Any Relationship Between Reactive Arthritis And Celiac?

11 May 2012 - 05:03 AM

I was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease via small bowel biopsy on April 10th 2012. A year prior I was diagnosed with Reiter's Syndrome (Reactive Arthritis). I know that both diseases have to do with your bodies immune system; however, my current doctors deny any correlation between the two. My question is if there is anyway either Celiac or Reactive arthritis could of triggered the other to develop? I am 26 years old and this is the first time in my life I have ever had these sorts of problems.

Currently I am looking into getting diagnosed as Celiac. I have had multiple attacks of symmeterical joint pain in wrists and ankles. There has been lots of misdiagnosis of arthritis before people have been diagnosed with celiac. IIRC. Don't hesitate to hit the search button top right and look for things like Rhuematoid Arthritis, Arthritis etc.

Good luck! Are you on a Gluten Free Diet now? Notice any difference with your arthritis?
