Kidney Disease and Celiac Disease

The following was taken from a lecture given by Dr. Joseph Murray in October, 1996. It was published by the Sprue-Nik Press (Published by the Tri-County Celiac Sprue Support Group, a chapter of CSA/USA, Inc. serving southeastern Michigan) Volume 5, Number 9, December 1996. Dr. Joseph Murray, one of the leading USA physicians in the diagnosis of celiac disease (CD) and dermatitis herpetiformis (DH). Dr. Murray (murray.joseph@mayo.edu) of the Mayo Clinic Rochester, MN, is a gastroenterologist who specializes in treating Celiac disease:

Q: Is there any kidney disease associated with CD?

A: Yes: IgA nephropathy, which is a common condition causing blood in the urine (possibly in microscopic amounts that would not be detected visually), may be caused by CD. This may be similar to what happens in DH, where antibodies produced in the intestine get deposited under the skin. In IgA nephropathy, youve got IgA that was produced somewhere (we dont know where) getting deposited in the kidneys, causing secondary damage to the kidneys.

I wish the article would have given more information on kidney disease and celiac disease. I feel it's an important topic.

Now I understand what happened to me before the doctor diagnosed me with celiac disease.

I agree there is a need for more information about kidney disease and celiac disease or at least gluten intolerance/allergy. I'm wondering where Dr. Murray is located and if he has a private practice. I would travel just about anywhere to see him and explain my husband's condition. He seems to be the only doctor who understands this condition. I have had to do my own research and own trial and error methods of helping my husband. He is right on target and needs to get this word out for the many who are suffering and most, if not all, other doctors don't understand.

Talks only of having blood in your urine, but does not address the question of whether or not going gluten-free will help alleviate the symptoms of polycystic kidney disease.

Pointless article without any detail!

However there is some evidence that undiagnosed gluten intolerance could be the cause of CKD (igAN etc) but regardless one should go gluten free completely for at least three months and then get your bloods done again to see if there have been any positive changes. meat and dairy is killing us too. Its not rocket science is it, wholefoods only if we value our lives.

I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol.

Why wouldn't it be gluten-free? whiskey is gluten-free. Wine is gluten-free.

Have you been tested for a stomach ulcer? That's what the pain sounds like to me. You can also get pain in your stomach from too much gas. Another possibility is GERD.

Well, you can always trial the gluten-free diet, but do it for at least six months. Act exactly as if you had celiac disease. Worry about cross contamination and learn to read labels. My own hubby did this per the very poor advice from two medical doctors 16 years ago (and we had good in...
