Topics I've Started

Mast Cell Inflammatory/mastocytic Enterocolitis Disease

03 March 2008 - 02:01 PM

My Dr is treating me for this disease. It is commonly found with people with the celiac gene and gluten intolerance. I tested negative for celiac but still was having worsening syptoms. I am seeing an allergist now to determine other allergens, but common ones that are triggers are fermented foods, citric, coffee, chocolate, wheat. Does anyone else have this?

This is a great website that describes the details:

Skin Rash-is It Celiac? Unable To Diagnosse

01 November 2007 - 09:05 AM

I started noticing stomach issues in the last 2 years. I am a 35 year old female. I have always been lactose intolerant. My cousin has a diagnosis of Celiacs. About 10 months ago I started having alot of bloating and gastritis type pain, constipation. I went to an internist and tested negative on the blood test for the gluten antibodies. I do not eat alot of gluten though and feel the test could not be accurate. Now I am starting to see random red dots on my chest or arms the day after something with gluten, then it goes away in 24-48 hours. Then I went to a GI Doctor and had an endoscope and colon biopsy-negative. Again, I still did not eat alot of gluten prior to the test. I am now on levbid and prevacid for an acid stomach. Symptoms are better for the constipation. My Dr. says I probably just have an intolerance to gluten. Now I am getting the rash in clusters on my neck and shoulders after I eat gluten which I know is a sign. It use to go away after 2 days, but now the eczema looking rash hangs around and inflammes after eating eating, but doesn't go away after weeks. Can the rash be tested for antibodies? The rash does not have water blisters, but could it be Celiacs? Any suggestions of others tests?
