In Topic: Do Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Folks Typically Have Casein Or Lactose Intol...

15 September 2013 - 03:28 AM

From my understanding, it is the ends of the villi that produce the lactase that helps digest the lactose in milk. When the villi are damaged and inflamed, they don't produce the lactase which leads to lactose intolerance. Some individuals however may have a preexisting intolerance unrelated to the small intestinal damage. NCGI does not damage the small intestine.


In Topic: Anyone Have Iron Deficiency Anemia As Only Sign Of Celiac?

My blood tests were negative. I had the biopsy and I have stage 1 lesions which would explain why the blood tests were negative. (It wasn't the full panel though). I have had a lot of symptoms though and since the biopsy have been diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia.


In Topic: 4 Yr Old Son

I will be getting the results next friday when we go for the follow up appt. I thought it would be a good idea to be prepared first.
Thanks for the suggestion about contacting the celiac support group for a good GI.

We definitely won't be going to the GI I saw. He had a locum at my initial appt who said "I probably had IBS" then said to just have 2 slices of bread for 2 weeks prior to the endo. Then at the endo he had 2 students perform the endo. They only took 3 biopsies and I am not sure if they laid them on the slide correctly.

I definitely want my son to get an endoscopy. I think it will help him to stick with his diet if he has a definitive diagnosis. I am hoping my partner agrees to then make this a gluten-free household. FX we don't have to wait too long for an appt.

Have you had your iron levels checked? Shortness of breath and wounds that take a while to heal are signs of iron deficiency. Also, have a look into FODMAPS diet. Cutting out certain foods may help with your GI isues.


In Topic: Sick Just By Touching Or Smelling Gluten

My partner baked a packet mix cake (with gluten in it) and I couldn't stop sneezing smelling it cooking.
