Any Cd Men Out There Have Prostate Problems?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

i am too young and was very active and healthy before i came down with a sudden prostate infection. was in severe pain for 6 months.

finally, after 12 (!) doctors, i have found a clinical ecologist/immunologist who took me off gluten about 1.5 months ago.

things have definitley improved since then (other typical celiac disease symptoms), but there are still some intermittent pains (depends on what foods i eat, and maybe activities). i am wondering if the infection/inflammation was actually caused by celiac disease and being gluten-free is making it better or if i just had/have a prostate infection that came from a bacteria, and it helped kick in the celiac disease (and the prostate has just been slowly healing over time).

thanks a lot

Hi Johnny,

I know this is an old post and don't know if you're active on the forum, but I wanted to ask you whether your prostate problems have cleared up on the gluten-free diet/diagnosis with celiac disease. The reason is that I'm writing a book on urinary symptoms and possible relation to gluten intolerance, and looking for "success stories" of men with prostate, urinary, or erectile dysfunction issues that responded positively to a g.f. diet. I have lots of stories from women, but the book also has a section on men's health, and I'd like to include some personal accounts, names changed and privacy protected, of course. My private email is wendylcohan@yahoo.com. I'm a registered nurse and health writer, and take this subject very seriously and confidentially.

This is not quite the "success story" you might be looking for, but I was JUST diagnised with prostate cancer. I am 46, perfectly healthy, except I was also diagnosed with celiac disease a year ago. Maybe the malabsorbtion over the years caught up with me. I am scheduled for a "radical robotic prostatectomy" in a month and hopefully all the cancer is confined to the prostate. Any research out there on any connection between celiac disease and prostate concer?

I was having prostate problems that seemed to get better after I gave up gluten. The pain in my hips also got better. I also started eating more raw things including flax seeds (GNC has them) I grind up myself in a coffee grinder. I add rice bran and lecithin to that.

A great book about prostate cancer is "Kamikaze Cowboy" by Dirk Benedict. He was "Faceman" in the "A Team" tv series from the 80's. He was supossed to have gland removed and he wwent to Vermont for a couple months and ate brown rice and raw veggies and such and his cancer went away

I would also suggest a special kind of meditation being used by military for PTSD. A lot of illnesses are realted to compromised immunity because of stress, negative emotions etc. This exercise shoes a different way to handle stress and get centered in ways most people only remember as a kid. People get well from a lot of things when they get theor identity back. Good luck

I was diagnosed with celiac in 2012. I most likely had it since adolescence. I am 56 and was recently diagnosed with high-risk prostate cancer that has thankfully not spread.  I am sure that years of inflammation are partly to blame.
