Nash (nonalcoholic Steatohepatis) & Celiac

Recommended Posts

Hi I new here,

I have been diagnosed with NASH, and I have been following a gluten free diet. I asked my gastro, if there was a connection with NASH and Celiac disease. I really didn't get a answer. I have many stomach problems, Ankylosing Spondylitis gene (HLA B27+), leaky gut, acid reflux, constipation, small bowel crohns, diabetes, many allergies, small amount fluid around heart, mild COPD, asthma, lactose intolerant and the list goes on.

When I started watching the gluten I ate, my bowels movements were lot softer. My severe obstructed sleep apnea, became controlled.

I am wondering if I should go back and ask my doctor to test me for Celiac disease.

I haven't had time to research an article that states a link directly to NASH, but there is a direct link to diabetes.

Many Celiacs have test results with elevated liver enzymes. There is a link to auto-immune liver disease. (I don't know the name, but my daughter's ped. gastro. warned me about it. It could be NASH for all I know.)

You have enough reseasons to be tested for Celiac, but you would have to eat gluten. If you feel better on a gluten free diet, do you really want to start eating gluten for testing?

I had elevated liver enzymes before I went gluten free and then after going gluten free they went back down. However, that was about 3 1/2 years ago and then last fall I was having blood work done and they were slightly elevated again. I was working around gluten, but still had a gluten free diet and I am no longer working around gluten. I was wondering if anyone experienced the same thing and more about liver disease (I do not drink alcohol or do any of the other causes of liver disease). Any input is appreciated! Also, how long should I wait to be retested?
