I was diagnosed with Celiac a few years ago and I am 15 years old now. I have noticed that since I started a gluten free diet my breasts haven’t grown at all. I haven’t grown much at all since than now that I think about it. My mother and aunts all developed around my age or younger. I know that genetics play a part in development but they all developed earlier. I know I should just be happy with my body but I feel kinda left out since all my friends are more developed and I have a very flat chest. I was wondering if anyone knew if having celiac had anything to do with my breast development and if I can do anything about it?

By Eab12 in Eab12I was on very low carb diet late summer early Fall into winter. At Christmas I came off and ate Christmas sweets, cookies, etc, etc... so good. By New Years I began with severe diarrhea with urgency. Extremely fatigued, my physician started me on doxycycline, no help, put on lomotil, motofen- no help. Then started questran. No help. Used verbizi, bentyl. Not much better. Had egd and bx showed villous atrophy. But the antibody lab test for celiac was negative. The dq2 and dq8 genetic testing showed dq2 positive, but dq8 negative. I also had microscopic colitis in the sigmoid at the same time. All other lab work was WNL. No physician with straight up tell me yes “definitely “ celiac. I don’t understand why the gluten antibody test was negative, when the biopsy pointed to it. I’m so confused and wishing the doctors would say yes this is what it is, and if you follow diet, all will be fine. I’ve been gluten free 4 weeks now. Feel better, no real diarrhea like before, but would like to get definite answer. My family has some immunological diseases such as lupus, RA, diabetes, but no celiac. Anyone else have contradictory findings?

By Trish McCleary in Pancreas and Celiac Disease Link?If I only knew I had celiac disease long before I was finally diagnosed. Now suffering celiac spru, gastroparesis and severe pancreatic insufficiency, I will never regain the full use of my pancreas.
I am in the process of learning if the celiac or Lyme Disease was the biggest culprit in damage to my Pancreas. I'll keep you posted if anyone wants to know. My sons have been dianosed with Lyme and with the information on this site I've learned my youngest (16) may also have celiac disease. Why it's taken his whole life for doctors to get it right I will never know but we're here now and gluten free looks to be in his future too.
The article here relating celiac with pancreas issues is very interesting to me and is something I must look into for my son's welfare. Thanks for information about what to look for in juvenile's!
