    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Could I Have Celiac Disease And Could My Grand Daughter

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I think I may have celiac disease. I have suffered with muscle pain for years, but all the testing - except high inflammation levels - come back ok. It seems to be getting worse. Over the last few years I have developed bouts of diarrhea, bloating, gas, foul stools. I stay amenic. I have thyroid disease and a fatty liver condition. I was told I am diabetic, but most of the time my sugar levels are ok. I think I may have more trouble with how I use insulin.

My granddaughter has been having trouble in school with concentration, etc. She was disagnosed ADD,. but it seems to be sporatic. She was put on Adderral, but I don't see a big change yet (1 week)

If I have celiac disease, could she have it as well and it not affect her digestion?

Any feed back would be appreciate.

Thank you.

Your daughters Adderal may take some time to settle in. Give this some time. Many doctors are quick to prescribe Adderal, so pleae check her attitude and place in life and age appropriate actions. Monitor this closely. I can not stress this as being so very important. I don't know her age, but some teenagers and young adult can have a very advere reaction to these drugs. I know from personal experience.

Regarding your possible inherited celiac disease, yes, if that is what you may have, it is possible that she may have inherited the gene that would pass on the disease (or the tendency) to aquire the disease at some point in their life.

Celiac Disease in an inherited autoimune disease. It can be unsymptomatic for many years and then a period of high stress, a pregnancy, and illness, or other tramatic situation which will jolt your system into triggering Celiac Disease. Ater that your life changes and diet is you world until you get the hang of it.

It is not life threatning and a very fruitfull life can be had, just an adjustment to your diet.

I am sorry that I have talked so long, but I hope that this will be helpful.
