Celiac Vs. Gluten Intolerance

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

One thing I've noticed since my celiac diagnosis is that there seems to be this division between confirmed celiacs and gluten intolerants. I'm new to celiac and I'm only wanting to get well and be well. I've had several conversations with people about the gluten free diet and several of those with gluten intolerance get defensive of their illness. You don't have to prove to me or anyone else that you don't feel well. If the gluten free diet is working for you then by all means continue. We are all in this together and we ned to support each other regardless if the medical community gives you a certain stamp, or not. It took the medical community 34 years to give me any kind of real answer to my issues. Honestly, I've little faith in modern medicine. I don't think we should let someone else confirm If we're ill or not. I don't know if others have experienced or sensed this as well but let's all come together on the war against gluten.

Thank you for your comments, BZBee.  There is sometimes an "Us vs. them" attitude between the doctor-diagnosed and the self-diagnosed, but really we are all in this gluten mess together, all fighting the same issues the best we can, some with labels on their foreheads and some without.  Those without (and I am one and have sometimes experienced this myself) do sometimes feel that  a diagnosis seems to endow some who have it with a greater sense of right to claim the gluten sensitivity than those who are either NCGI (i.e., tested negative) or who could not get anyone to test them before they stopped eating gluten out of desperation.  But we all have to do what is right for ourselves given our own situations and life sometimes cannot be neatly wrapped up in little packages with labels.  Respect is deserved for each suffering indvidual and as much help as we can give them.

I agree too.

 

I think the only difference between celiacs and NCGI's is that celiacs have the intestinal damage... and I have no idea why that is such a defining factor when we share every other symptom and inflammatory response. My only guess is that emphasis on celiac disease comes from a focus on autoimmunity (celiacs tend to get more autoimmune diseases) but if you are just looking at how gluten affects our lives, it's about the same. There are a LOT of NCGI's who appear to have much worse and obvious symptoms than I do.

 

Gluten is just bad stuff.  :ph34r:  Too bad it that it tastes good. ;)

I am one of those celiacs who got the "label" the hard way (years of painful symptoms, complications, etc.)

and even if the docs had not finally confirmed it, I would still have gone gluten-free and never looked back.

 

I do not care much for labels anyway and if gluten makes someone sick, then I believe that person is INTOLERANT of it, period....

and we are all part of one giant spectrum of gluten sensitivity. 

 

Gluten is poison to us. Same boat. Same team---- and the same solution. Don' eat it! 

 

Welcome to the forum, BzBee. :)

Cheers!

The only reason I know I have an issue with gluten is by accident and how I got my "label" of celiac. I had an accidental biopsy with emergency surgery, otherwise I would still be horribly ill and not know why. I would probably also still be stuffing my face with more and more things like whole grains such as wheat in an attempt to be more more healthy only making myself more sick. Who cares what it is called? If it makes us all sick, it makes us all sick. So what if one of us called celiac because we got a diagnosis and another didn't or couldn't get a diagnosis. Frankly, I don't think it freakin matters. We're all in the same boat together. But I have also noticed that some people on both sides of the fence get super pissy and it seems completely silly to me.

There are a few "celiac elitists" out there  I saw one on another site who made me laugh out loud. (She was like the mean girl in HS who would not let certain people into her special group) It caused the NCGIs to defend themselves and it got ugly. Why should people have to defend their conscious choices to take charge of their own health?

<_< The things people get their panties in a bunch over gives me pause.

I joined a Facebook group for Celiacs in my area thinking they would be able to provide support, they know the area, the stores etc. the lady running it has been driving my crazy. Someone asked about tax returns as in Canada you can get some of the money back. I mentioned my experiences with the tax people and she kept going on about celiac this and celiac that. Which unfortunately is the way the tax people are, it's either you have celiac disease or no issue with gluten all. She seems to be unaware of the term gluten intolerant, it's all or nothing. When you mention ncgi she goes off about celiac disease.

I got mad and let rip, telling her that not everyone is (un)lucky enough to get a clear cut diagnosis, the testing is not always accurate and in our case when you have young kids seriously ill you can't wait and hope for a diagnosis you sometimes have to say screw it and go with your gut. She does not get that celiac disease and ncgi is not a black and white issue, and belittles the people that are self diagnosed.

I do think it's silly that these division lines exist. We've all been there when we know there is something wrong with our body and a stranger tells you how you really feel. No one knows your body like you do. I also feel that now I do have a label everything will be contributed to Celiac Disease. Instead of trying to investigate other causes for certain symptoms. Most of the information I've received for living a gluten free lifestyle has come from gluten intolerant's, and I appreciate the help, advice, and support.

Remember the old Dr. Joke.

Patient: "dr. My arm hurts when I move it this way."

Dr.: " Then don't move it that way."

If gluten hurts you, don't eat it!

I so agree with you!  (And welcome, by the way.)

 

I just read an article this morning that ended with this: "Celiac disease can be diagnosed with a simple blood test. It's possible some people have a mild intolerance to gluten, but most doctors say if you don't have celiac disease, you don't need to avoid gluten."

 

Huh??

 

I am so glad my GI is more enlightened. He is absolutely convinced I have gluten intolerance, even after all my celiac tests were negative. He even warned me about cross contamination the other day, which made me feel great that he isn't doubting the diagnosis.

That's an enlightened doc , for sure!

 

If Dr. Fasano ( who in my mind is the celiac guru) says gluten sensitivity is a broad spectrum, with celiac at the extreme end--then

why would anyone in the medical community think otherwise? They are the "unenlightened", that's why.

 

There will always be nay-sayers, but to me, anyone who feels remarkably better off gluten, with symptom-resolution--is likely gluten intolerant to some degree.

Why else would it be so apparent?

IMHO

Had any doctor thought to test me for celiac disease at any time in my first 43 years I would have likely tested negative - when finally diagnosed all of my antibodies were positive - yet weakly in most cases. All of my children and grands tested sero-neg with the exception of oldest that only had one positive DGP.

I don't care what we call it - gluten was destroying our bodies - so four of us now have "official" diagnosis and two remain labeled NGCI - will any of us touch gluten ever again - we would rather eat ground glass and have suggested to one GI that perhaps he should eat just a little bit of glass each day until we can measure the damage it "may" cause in his digestive system.

Perfect analogy (and pretty much what glutening feels like for me, too)!

 

And for the OP — one thing I love about this forum is no one judges the others based on who has an official diagnosis and who doesn't. I think many of those here WITH a diagnosis remember what a long hard road it was to get one!

this is a great thread. I agree it does not matter to us if we have a confirmed diagnosis. we know our bodies and that's what counts.

I got really lucky in finding my diagnoses also. I was getting a full work-up from a back specialist for my extreme muscle spasms. Muscle relaxers and naproxen weren't even touching it. The doc found a softball size bubble in my stomach and just so happen to suggest I might be gluten Intolerant. So I was like "what is that?" and "so what are you gonna do for my back?". I started reading about celiac symptoms and thought I'm not crazy after all about all of my random issues. GI doc confirmed Celiac with endoscopy biopsy, but I couldn't keep consuming gluten before my blood test which was negative because of that. I got all children tested and my oldest child has extreme Gluten Intolerance. Extreme meaning he tested very high for intolerance. We are still fighting his vitamin Deficiencies and Accelerated OCD from the lack iron and vitamin D. He struggles with fatigue and irritability daily. We are both on the right track to wellness now and hope for the best.

My daughter has two blood tests that will only claim a "sensitivity."  Her doctor let her decide if she wanted the more invasive procedure to determine damage/inflammation.  She declined the biopsy.  He said either way she MUST eliminate all gluten.  We have. :)

 

It's family members that scoff.  Even with the two separate blood tests showing positive results. 

 

Since going gluten-free (I joined her in support -- I am a confirmed IBS sufferer--I did have that awful scope), we are MUCH healthier.  Took a couple of hard long years to get here but --  YAY.  IT WORKS!!

 

Best of health and good vibes your way.  Gluten is a mess.  Don't deal with it :)

They (them researcher-heads) only confirmed that non-celiac wheat sensitivity is real last year (2012).  They think it is related more to the innate immune system.  Celiac is a response by the adaptive immune system.  They think Crohn's is also a response by the innate immune system.  So it is still an immune response, just not the same immune response.  The long term or short term ramifications of non-celiac wheat sensitivity are unknown right now.  Other than the immediate symptoms that is.  Heck, they didn't even admit it existed until last year.  So, it's not like they have any real idea what it does to people over time.  It might turn them into little green men with antennas for all we know.  Well, probably not.  But we just don't know that it is less serious than celiac disease right now.

Getting diagnosed on paper isn't at all important other than one reason (you need to, to get help from a doctor). Problem is by the time you get a test you wouldn't have eaten gluten in years anyway.. why? because people tend not to eat things that make them sick in the guts.. maybe a couple times,, maybe ten years like me lol but eventually you will say enough is enough. In that case you can still have the gene test like I had and I had all the right genes, no anti bodies though as I'd been off gluten for 3 years.

 

My doctor refers to gluten as "poison" when talking to me and isn't that the truth. He would never ask me to eat it in order to show up on the anti body test because it's already dam near killing me from previous damage as it is.

    Celiac.com 04/24/2018 - Did you know in 2017 alone, the United States had OVER TENS OF THOUSANDS of people evacuate their homes due to natural disasters such as fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and tsunamis? Most evacuation sites are not equipped to feed your family the safe gluten free foods that are required to stay healthy.  Are you prepared in case of an emergency? Do you have your Gluten Free Emergency Food Bag ready to grab and go?  
    I have already lived through two natural disasters. Neither of which I ever want to experience again, but they taught me a very valuable lesson, which is why I created a Gluten Free Emergency Food Bag (see link below). Here’s my story. If you’ve ever lived in or visited the Los Angeles area, you’re probably familiar with the Santa Ana winds and how bitter sweet they are. Sweet for cleaning the air and leaving the skies a brilliant crystal blue, and bitter for the power outages and potential brush fires that might ensue.  It was one of those bitter nights where the Santa Ana winds were howling, and we had subsequently lost our power. We had to drive over an hour just to find a restaurant so we could eat dinner. I remember vividly seeing the glow of a brush fire on the upper hillside of the San Gabriel Mountains, a good distance from our neighborhood. I really didn’t think much of it, given that it seemed so far from where we lived, and I was hungry! After we ate, we headed back home to a very dark house and called it a night. 
    That’s where the story takes a dangerous turn….about 3:15am. I awoke to the TV blaring loudly, along with the lights shining brightly. Our power was back on! I proceeded to walk throughout the house turning everything off at exactly the same time our neighbor, who was told to evacuate our street, saw me through our window, assuming I knew that our hillside was ablaze with flames. Flames that were shooting 50 feet into the air. I went back to bed and fell fast asleep. The fire department was assured we had left because our house was dark and quiet again. Two hours had passed.  I suddenly awoke to screams coming from a family member yelling, “fire, fire, fire”! Flames were shooting straight up into the sky, just blocks from our house. We lived on a private drive with only one way in and one way out.  The entrance to our street was full of smoke and the fire fighters were doing their best to save our neighbors homes. We literally had enough time to grab our dogs, pile into the car, and speed to safety. As we were coming down our street, fire trucks passed us with sirens blaring, and I wondered if I would ever see my house and our possessions ever again. Where do we go? Who do we turn to? Are shelters a safe option? 
    When our daughter was almost three years old, we left the West Coast and relocated to Northern Illinois. A place where severe weather is a common occurrence. Since the age of two, I noticed that my daughter appeared gaunt, had an incredibly distended belly, along with gas, stomach pain, low weight, slow growth, unusual looking stool, and a dislike for pizza, hotdog buns, crackers, Toast, etc. The phone call from our doctor overwhelmed me.  She was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I broke down into tears sobbing. What am I going to feed my child? Gluten is everywhere.
    After being scoped at Children's Hospital of Chicago, and my daughters Celiac Disease officially confirmed, I worried about her getting all the nutrients her under nourished body so desperately needed. I already knew she had a peanut allergy from blood tests, but just assumed she would be safe with other nuts. I was so horribly wrong. After feeding her a small bite of a pistachio, which she immediately spit out, nuts would become her enemy. Her anaphylactic reaction came within minutes of taking a bite of that pistachio. She was complaining of horrible stomach cramps when the vomiting set in. She then went limp and starting welting. We called 911.
    Now we never leave home without our Epipens and our gluten free food supplies. We analyze every food label. We are hyper vigilant about cross contamination. We are constantly looking for welts and praying for no stomach pain. We are always prepared and on guard. It's just what we do now. Anything to protect our child, our love...like so many other parents out there have to do every moment of ever day!  
    Then, my second brush with a natural disaster happened, without any notice, leaving us once again scrambling to find a safe place to shelter. It was a warm and muggy summer morning, and my husband was away on a business trip leaving my young daughter and me to enjoy our summer day. Our Severe Weather Alert Radio was going off, again, as I continued getting our daughter ready for gymnastics.  Having gotten used to the (what seemed to be daily) “Severe Thunderstorm warning,” I didn’t pay much attention to it. I continued downstairs with my daughter and our dog, when I caught a glimpse out the window of an incredibly black looking cloud. By the time I got downstairs, I saw the cover to our grill literally shoot straight up into the air. Because we didn’t have a fenced in yard, I quickly ran outside and chased the cover, when subsequently, I saw my neighbor’s lawn furniture blow pass me. I quickly realized I made a big mistake going outside. As I ran back inside, I heard debris hitting the front of our home.  Our dog was the first one to the basement door! As we sat huddled in the dark corner of our basement, I was once again thinking where are we going to go if our house is destroyed. I was not prepared, and I should have been. I should have learned my lesson the first time. Once the storm passed, we quickly realized we were without power and most of our trees were destroyed. We were lucky that our house had minimal damage, but that wasn’t true for most of the area surrounding us.  We were without power for five days. We lost most of our food - our gluten free food.
    That is when I knew we had to be prepared. No more winging it. We couldn’t take a chance like that ever again. We were “lucky” one too many times. We were very fortunate that we did not lose our home to the Los Angeles wildfire, and only had minimal damage from the severe storm which hit our home in Illinois.
      
    In 2017 alone, FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) had 137 natural disasters declared within the United States. According to FEMA, around 50% of the United States population isn’t prepared for a natural disaster. These disasters can happen anywhere, anytime and some without notice. It’s hard enough being a parent, let alone being a parent of a gluten free family member. Now, add a natural disaster on top of that. Are you prepared?

    Celiac.com 04/23/2018 - A team of researchers recently set out to learn whether celiac disease patients commonly suffer cognitive impairment at the time they are diagnosed, and to compare their cognitive performance with non-celiac subjects with similar chronic symptoms and to a group of healthy control subjects.
    The research team included G Longarini, P Richly, MP Temprano, AF Costa, H Vázquez, ML Moreno, S Niveloni, P López, E Smecuol, R Mazure, A González, E Mauriño, and JC Bai. They are variously associated with the Small Bowel Section, Department of Medicine, Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo Gastroenterology Hospital; Neurocience Cognitive and Traslational Institute (INECO), Favaloro Fundation, CONICET, Buenos Aires; the Brain Health Center (CESAL), Quilmes, Argentina; the Research Council, MSAL, CABA; and with the Research Institute, School of Medicine, Universidad del Salvador.
    The team enrolled fifty adults with symptoms and indications of celiac disease in a prospective cohort without regard to the final diagnosis.  At baseline, all individuals underwent cognitive functional and psychological evaluation. The team then compared celiac disease patients with subjects without celiac disease, and with healthy controls matched by sex, age, and education.
    Celiac disease patients had similar cognitive performance and anxiety, but no significant differences in depression scores compared with disease controls.
    A total of thirty-three subjects were diagnosed with celiac disease. Compared with the 26 healthy control subjects, the 17 celiac disease subjects, and the 17 disease control subjects, who mostly had irritable bowel syndrome, showed impaired cognitive performance (P=0.02 and P=0.04, respectively), functional impairment (P<0.01), and higher depression (P<0.01). 
    From their data, the team noted that any abnormal cognitive functions they saw in adults with newly diagnosed celiac disease did not seem not to be a result of the disease itself. 
    Their results indicate that cognitive dysfunction in celiac patients could be related to long-term symptoms from chronic disease, in general.

    Celiac.com 04/21/2018 - Dear Friends and Readers,
    I have been writing articles for Scott Adams since the 2002 Summer Issue of the Scott-Free Press. The Scott-Free Press evolved into the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. I felt honored when Scott asked me ten years ago to contribute to his quarterly journal and it's been a privilege to write articles for his publication ever since.
    Due to personal health reasons and restrictions, I find that I need to retire. My husband and I can no longer travel the country speaking at conferences and to support groups (which we dearly loved to do) nor can I commit to writing more books, articles, or menus. Consequently, I will no longer be contributing articles to the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. 
    My following books will still be available at Amazon.com:
    Gluten-free Cooking for Dummies Student's Vegetarian Cookbook for Dummies Wheat-free Gluten-free Dessert Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Reduced Calorie Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults (revised version) My first book was published in 1996. My journey since then has been incredible. I have met so many in the celiac community and I feel blessed to be able to call you friends. Many of you have told me that I helped to change your life – let me assure you that your kind words, your phone calls, your thoughtful notes, and your feedback throughout the years have had a vital impact on my life, too. Thank you for all of your support through these years.

    Celiac.com 04/20/2018 - A digital media company and a label data company are teaming up to help major manufacturers target, reach and convert their desired shoppers based on dietary needs, such as gluten-free diet. The deal could bring synergy in emerging markets such as the gluten-free and allergen-free markets, which represent major growth sectors in the global food industry. 
    Under the deal, personalized digital media company Catalina will be joining forces with Label Insight. Catalina uses consumer purchases data to target shoppers on a personal base, while Label Insight works with major companies like Kellogg, Betty Crocker, and Pepsi to provide insight on food label data to government, retailers, manufacturers and app developers.
    "Brands with very specific product benefits, gluten-free for example, require precise targeting to efficiently reach and convert their desired shoppers,” says Todd Morris, President of Catalina's Go-to-Market organization, adding that “Catalina offers the only purchase-based targeting solution with this capability.” 
    Label Insight’s clients include food and beverage giants such as Unilever, Ben & Jerry's, Lipton and Hellman’s. Label Insight technology has helped the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) build the sector’s very first scientifically accurate database of food ingredients, health attributes and claims.
    Morris says the joint partnership will allow Catalina to “enhance our dataset and further increase our ability to target shoppers who are currently buying - or have shown intent to buy - in these emerging categories,” including gluten-free, allergen-free, and other free-from foods.
    The deal will likely make for easier, more precise targeting of goods to consumers, and thus provide benefits for manufacturers and retailers looking to better serve their retail food customers, especially in specialty areas like gluten-free and allergen-free foods.

    Celiac.com 04/19/2018 - Previous genome and linkage studies indicate the existence of a new disease triggering mechanism that involves amino acid metabolism and nutrient sensing signaling pathways. In an effort to determine if amino acids might play a role in the development of celiac disease, a team of researchers recently set out to investigate if plasma amino acid levels differed among children with celiac disease compared with a control group.
     
    The research team included Åsa Torinsson Naluai, Ladan Saadat Vafa, Audur H. Gudjonsdottir, Henrik Arnell, Lars Browaldh, and Daniel Agardh. They are variously affiliated with the Institute of Biomedicine, Department of Microbiology & Immunology, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Institute of Clinical Sciences, Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Karolinska University Hospital and Division of Pediatrics, CLINTEC, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Clinical Science and Education, Karolinska Institute, Sodersjukhuset, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Diabetes & Celiac Disease Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden; and with the Nathan S Kline Institute in the U.S.A.
    First, the team used liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS) to analyze amino acid levels in fasting plasma samples from 141 children with celiac disease and 129 non-celiac disease controls. They then crafted a general linear model using age and experimental effects as covariates to compare amino acid levels between children with celiac disease and non-celiac control subjects.
    Compared with the control group, seven out of twenty-three children with celiac disease showed elevated levels of the the following amino acids: tryptophan; taurine; glutamic acid; proline; ornithine; alanine; and methionine.
    The significance of the individual amino acids do not survive multiple correction, however, multivariate analyses of the amino acid profile showed significantly altered amino acid levels in children with celiac disease overall and after correction for age, sex and experimental effects.
    This study shows that amino acids can influence inflammation and may play a role in the development of celiac disease.
