Celiac And Pancreatic Cancer?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Each of us has a different set of personal set of circumstances.  You have to decide what is best for you.  If you suspect DH, it can be biopsied and a positive is a diagnosis of celiac disease.  So, if you should get glutened accidentally, it might be worth getting the biopsy.  In the meantime, consider searching for a celiac-savvy dermatologist.  

I do not have DH, but those that do must be on a really strict gluten-free diet.  Be care about cross contamination.  Read our DH section for tips and advice. 

Oh, the blood type diet is bogus (no scientific merit).  But you would be be better off learning more about the gluten free diet, if you seriously suspect DH because the blood type diet does not prohibit gluten.

I wish you well!

Thanks for the link! You answered my question about having to eat gluten to get tested. That's great news, I just need the gene test.

Not so fast!  About 30% of the population have the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But in a few actually do about 1% or so.  So, genetic testing helps rule out celiac disease but it can not diagnose it.  Blood tests and an endoscopy are the accepted means of diagnosing.  just something to consider. ?

Thanks for the reply. I guess I feel so much better eating for "my type" because it eliminates most grains & dairy. I think I read something in the book about type O's having a natural defense against cancer (except skin), but that something in the wheat protein (gluten?) will cause the tumors to grow considerably(sorry, don't have the book with me). My mom was relatively thin,, but always had a bigger gut proportional to her size. They ended up finding a tumor the size of a grapefruit near her gallbladder duct. Wish there was more info about all of this...I really don't want to start eating gluten again to find out if I have celiac. I'm just getting over bad DH

Throw the book away!  It isn't even based on actual biological science!

Here is an easy to read explanation-

If you actually have DH, diagnosed by a biopsy, you have Celiac.  

Just having the gene, doesn't not mean you have Celiac.

The reason it is omportant to know if you are dealing with Celiac instead of some other reason for a wheat intolerance is that a Celiac must be very very very gluten free.  A person with other reasons, such as a FODMAP issue, can often eat a little gluten.

Does anyone know if Celiac can make you more susceptible to pancreatic cancer? I know that it can cause problems with the pancreas and make intestinal cancers more probable, but is there any research on pancreatic cancer specifically.

I'm asking because my mom died fairly young of pancreatic cancer, and I've been told by doctors that it may be hereditary and I should watch out and what not, and now I've been having problems and am in the process of being tested for Celiac, but am getting a lot of resistance and the common "you're not thin enough to be a celiac" responses from doctors.

Obviously, if there is a potential link between pancreatic cancer and Celiac it would be very advantageous for me to find this out, especially since no one seems to be taking me seriously. So, any information would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I was hospitalized for pancreatitis that was directly caused by inflammation of my small bowel. Any site on your body that receives repeated trauma is prone to cancer. Thats why certain diseases are said to cause cancer. I think the links between celiac and alot of other conditions are not yet researched. Many do not take celiac seriously or understand how sick some of us can get. My mother had pancreatic cancer of the bile ducts and received a total pancreatectomy over 5 years ago. In her case a combination of secondhand smoke and possibly undiagnosed gluten could be it. Her sister has chronic pancreatitis too.  I believe my father had celiac-- he had horrible gi trouble that they couldnt seem to diagnose years ago.  I was on creon before I went gluten free and dont need it now. My pancreas is better from the diet.

Wow, everything here sounds like my members of my family. I remywhen the doctor told me to stay off of wheat and peanut, needless to say milk...I do very well with out gluten products and I feel very healthy. A Dr by the name of doctor Wallach said that all good health comes from the gut. Bad gut, bad health. Mom and brother died young and I am determined to not let it be me. Allergies can cause all kind of cancers from what I read. You can leave bread products alone or you can take meds. I have been doing good without wheat products really all of us.....
