Immune Thrimbocytopenia Purpura Or Itp?

08 June 2013 - 06:33 PM

Just curious but wondering if anyone out there now has or has had ITP? I am not celiac myself that I know if but am suspicious of it after my toddler was diagnosed in March. Our family all had "testing" but it was not the full panel and I am not sure it was sufficnet for any of us. For the last 6 weeks I have now had ITP (also autoimmune) and it has some cases linked to celiac patients being higher risk.
My big focus now is in treating the itp (which is essentially low platelets and causes bleeding) but I am trying to determine if I should also push for more testing for celiac as well if there is a relationship so am curious if anyone out there has both or knows of the relationship?


Iron Supplement/constipation/vommiting

29 May 2013 - 05:41 PM

My little one is now 19 months old, was diagnosed about 3 months ago now. Her iron levels have been low since before diagnosis but were not treated as weren't "too low". We switched from milk (which we worried was making her worse anyways) to formula to add in some iron but her pulmonologust just started her on iron supplement in addition to the formula with iron. Since she has started it she is now suffering from constipation and get backed up to the point of projectile committing everything she has taken in. Then, she commits and pukes and is good for a day buy the one after that same thing occurs.

Anyone else had this problem with iron? Any ideas of how to better manage it for her? I am trying to give lots more water and juice and increased her veggies but she really is not much if an eater, especially with this tummy trouble :( any other parents with kids on iron with similar problems or advice?

Hate seeing her in so much pain and hate to see the food we work so hard to get her to take in to just come back out!

Does Gluten Change Color Of Poop?

11 May 2013 - 06:41 PM

Hello fellow parents, I am perplexed about assessing my daughters poop. She is only 18 months and as such can't tall is how she is feeling but she is a whole different child then before her diagnosis and going gluten free. So happy and catching up her milestones!!! We have been gluten free for about 8-9 weeks I would guess now. What is perplexing me is that she has always had frequent loose stools, odd colors with a bit of greys and greens but more and more brown. The last two weeks her stools have been more formed and she has been having trouble passing them, crying and hiding in corner to poop. They also the last few weeks have occasionally grey "streaks" almost like a rainbow running through them and today it was a black rainbow. Any thoughts on if this is from gluten? Does the gluten change the color of the poop if cross contamination occurs?

Family Testing After One Member Diagnosed

09 April 2013 - 08:14 PM

Just a question but after my baby was diagnosed with celiac by biopsy it was recommended we all as first degree relatives get tested. We proceeded to do that and my one child, my husband and myself all have some potential symptoms. All of us by our various different drs were all ordered only the tTg IgA test and all have come back negative so we were relieved. However, after the relief has past I am getting a tad but curious as my baby's blood tests were all negative (but she made enough antibodies). If hers were not positive but her biopsy was does that mean we all might actually be in the same position that this would be a false screen on its own?
