I get really snippy when given gluten, then I feel bad for about a day afterwords because I snipped at a person who was innocent. That is on top of constipation and bloating.


Gluten free since 2013.

Hello every one. Gluten and casein intolerance have ruined so many lives. My dad used to beat my mom... Couldn't help it. Ate food, got angry. I have forgiven him for it . My dad was diagnosed as schizophrenic...nope.. Gluten/casein intolerant. My brother diagnosed as bipolar......nope... Gluten/casein intolerant.. My sister... Angry.. Yells all the time... Gluten and casein intolerant... Me.... Anxiety/ depression.... Gluten/casein intolerant.

I had myself and my brother tested IgG from mymedlab.... My celiac test from blood was negative... But my IgG testing..wheat casien gluten and many more...

Please do no just go off of the first test...

Please go to the celiac Chicago research. 200 symptoms are related food intolerances.

Look up "brain allergies" if you have been diagnosed with any type of mental illness. Also look up functional medicine doctors... These doctors know all about gluten and food allergies..

Also, I found a a veterinarian that had mental issues and was gluten affected ... Www.dogtorj.com. So much great information..

I don't think a Veterinarian is a good source for human food intolerance issues.  Also, IMHO, I would not trust a medical diagnosis from a mail away lab, too many variables and you don't specifically state what all you tested for and what was negative or positive.  Allergies are different from Intolerances and so on.  Some psychiatric issues have nothing to do with food.  You may still want to pursue mental health care. 

 

Good luck to you.

FYI. The veterinarian is gluten intolerant like you and I. His site is full of great informations for humans and animals. He has been gluten free since 2000. So he has 13 more years of experience in dealing with this. :). Tere

I am glad you are benefiting from the gluten-free diet.

I  am not aware of any evidence that states we celiacs cannot eat the flesh and fat of animals who eat grains and soy--as this veterinarian claims.

 

I read this in one of this articles:

 

He questions:  " How hard is it to believe that the flesh-  and fat - of animals consuming gluten, soy and corn contain enough lectins to do us harm?"

 

Answer: It's hard to believe.

This thread is very interesting. Like so many coeliacs I thought my bad temper/anger was just part of my personality but realise that I have not always been like this at all and it is my celiac disease and other food intolerances that are playing a part. These intolerances make me very tired and very "down" and if anyone asks/tells me to do something I really can't be bothered doing then they get a mouthful.

 

I also now realise that although my celiac disease antibody level is down to "normal", this is not the full story and there is more to celiac disease than is commonly realised. Since going on the gluten-free diet I have become intolerant to all dairy, oats, eggs, soya, grapes, pears, ginger....never ending. My body appears to be a mass of inflammation - costant SI pain, sore arms which leads to frequent headaches and migraines.

 

But it is the depressive symptoms that I truly detest and the anger/short temper that comes with it. Now seeing a specialist who hopefully will guide me through a healing diet.

Now intolerant to oats, dairy, eggs, soya, pears, ginger, kidney beans

I am starting to think I have a gluten intolerance.  I have a rash on arms, chest, and back and now this anger thing.  Google searches bring me here.  Help.  Where do I start?  Aside from stopping gluten do I need labs run?  Had gallbladder out in June and really thought it would help the Gastro issues.

Here are the tests: 
 
-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG
-Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG
-EMA IgA 
-total serum IgA and IgG (control test)
-AGA IGA and AGA IgG - older and less reliable tests largely replace by the DGP tests
-endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken
 
You ou have to be consuming gluten daily for these tests to be accurrate (8 to 12 weeks). 
 
(Source: NVSMOM -- ?)
 
i would suggest reading the DH (rash) section of the forum as there is a very specific way to biopsy the rash and it seems most Derms mess up.  

 

Welcome to the forum and let us know how it goes!

Hi. Just wanted to say how much I love this site.  I used to think I was going crazy with the anxiety and irritability. Since going gluten free I have felt so much better although it does come back after I have been glutened. So good to know this is normal and it's not just me.

Sorry you have these symptoms . I have been gluten free for 9 years and I have a ridiculous amount of anger and depression it really sucks.

Thanks for sharing. Seems like so many people say "I cut out gluten and I feel so much better" , as if that's the cure all. I have celiac and a list of other medical conditions I battle with every day. I have cut out gluten and boy I'm angry, anxious, depressed, and some more ish. I definitely believe many of the conditions I have are related. Gluten lights a fire that spreads through my system from head to tow. I am fighting for my own health and my desire to enjoy living again every day! One foot in front of the other. All I know is laughter is my go to medicine. It's free, I don't need a prescription, I don't have to remember to refill or pick it up, and it's always with me.

Anyone else have varying levels of gluten reactions? I know when I've been seriously glutened. I practically pass out, vomit, diarrhea, etc. When I touch gluten, my hands break open and bleed. But sometimes I just have a nasty temper, which is not like me, with no other signs of gluten. Everything and everyone makes me really mad. Little issues really make me mad. No patience for anyone or anything. It'll take me a few days of this before I realize that I think I've been glutened, but I don't know where or how. I assume this anger issue is gluten related because I lose my patience, have depression issues, skin feels I need to crawl out of it to feel better from a bad glutening. I'm not angry all the time. Normally I am happy and laugh a lot. But when I get this no patience anger thing I can barely laugh.

 

Anyone else feel like this? Or is it just me?

Yes Yes Yes, I do feel like that to and my head feels like it is being squeezed , i cant spell, I hurt every where ,starts in my upper arms. I'm like all doped up staggering. people don't understand. I don't drink either. Its a gluten rage is what my husband calls it.. it is not good. makes it hard to live with your self

I am really happy to find this thread, you guys have no idea. I love wheat. I think I am addicted to it. I must have some at every meal. I really ingest a huge amount in a day. I always feels this burning sensation over my shoulders going down my pectorals and my arms after i ingest some wheat product. In the morning i feel always exhausted, especially my legs.

When it comes to my moods, oh my!! I am constantly angry and irritable over the least of things. But I am chill person by nature. I love to think and read. 

i have been suspecting wheat for so long but never have to gut to stop it or even to read about it.

When it comes joint pain, bagels hurt my lower back, at least this i know for sure. 

Thank you

Please consider getting tested for celiac disease before trying the gluten-free diet.  The blood tests are listed above.  It can be so hard to do a gluten challenge once you have gone gluten free.  Plus, with a diagnosis, you can get better family and medical support.  I wish you well.

My daughter went off gluten a month ago and her sadness and irritability and aggression disappeared. She isn’t ceoliac, according to blood tests,  but she tested extremely high for glutamate  ( through a neurotransmitter test). Shocked at the difference in her mood - they are much more normal now.

Wow!  Great news.  Celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity can really impact your mental health, that is for sure.

Well I'm so glad I've just read this.... out of the blue I begin criticising and picking at the things my kids are doing wrong. Everything seems like a massive issue and I feel like everyone in the house is being confrontational. 

I get so mad that I end up either swearing (which I never swear) or I break something.....It just feels like rage which I cant stop. I feel bad for my family as they do not deserve this behaviour.....  We work hard at eating a total gluten free diet and I don't do cheat days. Sometimes I risk eating out but never eat any wheat based food at all. However sometimes I risk a bag of chips. As I said this is very out of character for me... along with this I am still in denial that I truly have an issue with Gluten.  The family disagree with my thoughts totally on this. So in answer to your question.

 

I feel the same as you. And I'm sorry that others have this nasty horrible thing to deal with.

I was pleased to learn recently that See's Candies has black and red licorice.  Not Twizzlers, but could do as a substitute?  https://www.sees.com/more-treats   See's chocolates are the best.  Everything on their website is gluten-free unless otherwise noted (rare 3rd party item).  You can even make a custom box of your favorites.  I love See's!

I'm very happy to find this site, and see this topic discussed.  I was diagnosed last fall by blood test.  I had an endoscopy for stomach pain which showed gastritis, but was told I was not put deep enough to look at the small intestine. At my request the doctor took a blood test and it came back Celiac. The lab also suggested some other tests, but my doctor said I didn't need them. I'm not sure she really understands the disease.  I have noticed since I've been on the diet my thinking is much clearer, and I have fewer IBS symptoms.  Less abdominal cramping. I also have more energy, motivation and looking forward to doing things.  But I do express my anger and irritation more than I did before starting the diet.  I think the gluten-free diet is allowing me to express anger instead of repressing it and getting depressed.  So while it might not be pleasant for my husband it is better for me!  But the anger I have at things that happened maybe years ago will raise it's ugly head.

On 6/4/2007 at 6:45 PM, Guest maybe I have celiac said:

 

 

My symptoms don't sound as severe as yours. I would normally get diarrhea and my gut prutudes, not obscenely but enough where it is annoying... My symptoms are more neurological as I discussed earlier.

 

As far as medicines and herbs. I take a Centrum multivitamin, cod liver oil, borage oil maybe once or twice a week. I heard multivitamins can have gluten. I am only new to this Celiac disease for the past month. I am on anti-dpressants, Celexa, but I notice they dont work after I eat gluten, so I am thinking of tapering off the next month or two. I have been on ADs for two rounds before, and they are not a permanent cure. I don't everything can be totally normal, that is just part of life. Do you taken any drugs, supplements, vitamins???

 

I am thinking of getting Enterolab to confirm my suspicions as I heard bloods tests are hit or miss. My thyroid came back normal. I have been trying to take things into my own hands after continually be misdiagnosed.

 

I see your gall bladder was taken out, I see a lot of people with Celiac have that happen. My mother in law had hers taken out, so I wonder if she has it too.

Hi

You should definitely get a blood test and endoscopy to determine if you have celiac. If you do, and you are eating gluten then that could definitely explain both you depression and why your anti depressant medication isn't working. Most hormones, including serotonin and dopamine both of which are typically responsible for depression, are regulated buy the intestines so if your intestines are damaged from eating gluten then your serotonin and dopamine levels will most certainly be affected.
