Gluten and heart problems

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to this forum, just going through many tests to figure out symptoms that go from feed to gallbladder low ejection to heart palpitations... list goes on and on... I don't feel myself... I just want to ask if anyone knows or experienced heart palpitations or other heart problems due to gluten intolerance. My ECG always shows that I am having anterior infarct and it's been a year since  and no doctor can figure it out. Any ideas please! Thank you very much!

Celiac disease can affect many parts  of the body.  There are over 200 known symptoms, but unfortunately they can overlap with many other AI issues or other illnesses.  Best to get tested.  Keep eating gluten and ask your doctor for a celiac blood test.  Learn more:

To answer your question, I had a non-functioning gallbladder (0% injection rate).  If I had been diagnosed sooner, it might have been prevented (I think).  Others here have had heart issues.  Again, best to get tested.  

I wish you well.

Hi! I've had heart palpitations. They're very scary, so I understand.  Get your vitamin D, B12 and folate levels checked.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption which results in malnutrition.  Deficiencies in certain vitamins can have an impact on how your organs function.

Thought these articles might help.

Yes, I had many years of palpitations, missed beats etc. as well as very intense chest pains which closely match those of a heart attack. I had several ECG's in hospital ER, wore a 24 hr trace, had cardiac sonography and none of it showed up anything. When I removed gluten it cleared up, although if I've slipped up ever I'll get the palpitations back. 

There's a couple of links in this post which may be of help as they list some of the symptoms that are associated with celiac/gluten sensitivity. As CL says, don't remove gluten till you've been tested, that can make it so much harder to get a diagnosis. 

Best of luck!

Yes! Always had heart palpitations, wore a 24hr monitor once and was on high blood pressure meds for 10 years. (Starting at age 27!?)

Test results non-conclusive. 

Had no idea it was related to Celiac but it all went away after I went gluten-free. 

Never bothered to tell anyone but my husband. ( A cardiologist would just roll his or her eyes.)  I take vitamin D and b12 now. 

Good luck!!
