In Topic: Gallbladder Issues Related To Gluten Intolerance?

14 May 2013 - 05:11 AM

Mine showed up fine on the blood tests and the ultra sounds. No gallstones here.

I was lucky in that I know a few people that had serious gallbladder issues, and they said to push for the hida scan. The ultrasound found nothing for me either...just some "sludge" but they said it wasn't important. Doc was very surprised when the hida came back so low. It is twingy on and off so I'm sure it will eventually get painful enough to remove...I won't wait once I have one of those attacks! I feel bad you all had to go through so much pain with yours, that's awful.

Very interesting links IrishHeart. Thank you!

Since gall bladder disease IS associated with celiac and gluten intolerance (and the majority of my family members, including me--no longer have a gall bladder )

I would say YES! it is related.

I had mine removed at 25 because I was so very sick .....and that was just the beginning of all my problems

I was not diagnosed until 53, but not before I acquired dozens of horrid symptoms you do not want.

"Untreated celiac disease can be life threatening. Celiacs are more likely to be afflicted with problems relating to malabsorption, including osteoporosis, tooth enamel defects, central and peripheral nervous system disease, pancreatic disease, internal hemorrhaging, organ disorders (gall bladder, liver, and spleen), and gynecological disorders. Untreated celiac disease has also been linked an increased risk of certain types of cancer, especially intestinal lymphoma."

Hi everyone. Thank you for the replies! I have to find out what exactly was on the blood test panel.

Shadow...I see the list of tests that one should get and I'm sure it wasn't complete. I will request the list from my doc to see what was on their panel. I have been gluten-free on and off for a few months so I will have to weigh getting back on again for further testing. I feel a little better right now gluten-free for a few days!
Power- I def do not have the gallbladder pain. I have seen people that have...sweating and lookin like they're going to pass out...I get twinges here and there but I eat pretty low fat so I only feel it when I have an avocado or beef which I rarely have. So I'm hesitant to take it out even if it is functioning at 6%. The docors both said I should not worry about leaving it in if I am not in pain.

I just hate to cut out so much if it's not gluten. I'm sure you all understand! This is frustrating.
