Functional And Metabolic Disorders In Celiac Disease: New Implications For Nutritional Treatment

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I found this article an interesting read:  http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/pdf/10.1089/jmf.2014.0025

 

The writers compiled important points from forty-nine different papers for this article.  I recently had my nutritional levels tested again, and there was a 300 point drop in my B-12 level, but then I read this:

 

"A condition of pancreatic insufficiency can also contribute to lower serum Vitamin B-12 levels, since proteases are necessary to separate B-12 from salivary R-protein, in the upper intestine tract, and to allow the binding with stomach intrinsic factor."

Excellent and useful article--thanks very much for posting.

 

The folate deficiency was one I had to figure out myself as my original doctor never tested me for it. I kept reporting fatigue even after 6 months and he kept saying "but your B-12 and iron and thyroid is stable now". Glad to see this was discussed in the article.

 

Also explains my gall bladder dysfunction, disease and removal in my 20's.

 

So many people I know who are obese insist "I can't have celiac!", yet there is compelling evidence that being overweight can't rule out celiac disease either! I was once overweight too, then I dropped 90 lbs. while very sick.

 

I found the section about people presenting with hives because of nickel sensitivity to be very interesting.

Sometimes, people think they have suddenly developed DH even though they never had it before DX...this may explain some of those lesions.

 

Printing it off right now. My GI doctor will want to read it, too!

 

And big props to the green leafies---they really do help in so many ways. ^_^ power to the kale!! whoohoo!

Talk about a delayed response on my part  :)  I'm doing well!  I will admit I am a little upset to a certain extent because I had my DGP IGG level tested again in August, and it rose 4 points, and I'm still in the slightly positive range.  I do my absolute best with CC, and I still do not eat out very frequently.  I always keep this thread in the back of my mind: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/106693-new-test-for-non-responsive-celiac-disease/  Maybe my body is just one that remembers really well.  My Vitamin D level was a 31, so my PCP prescribed the 50,000 IU dose weekly, but I am no longer Vitamin K deficient!!  

 

In other news, this has been a mentally draining start to the school year, but then I think about how much tougher it would be if I was still on gluten.  My fantastic GI doctor left the practice in August  :( I did see another one within the same practice so I could get my fat malabsorption and pancreatic elastase testing redone, and he seems moldable haha  I'm still waiting for those test results.  I'm working on fulfilling prerequisites so that I can apply to start a masters in nutrition hopefully next fall.  I've had a good time dating, and I have a fourth date tonight, so we'll see how that goes.  I really think someone should write a book on dating with celiac.  I've gotten better with bringing it up casually, so it's getting easier but still is interesting.  Life is busy, but in a good way  :)
