Can You Have All The Same Symptoms With Gluten Intollerance

Recommended Posts

Just a quick question. I know i'm either celiac or gluten intollerant as I have been on the diet 4 weeks and am yet to get sick again everything has gone apart from a bit of constipation.

I know that you can still be celiac with negative blood and it runs in my family but....

can you have all celiac symptoms including mouth ulcers and weight loss and just be gluten intollerant? Has anyone else experienced weight loss and recurrent mouth ulcers with all of the other symptoms that make you feel really crappy but suffers from intollerance rather than full blown celiac im interested thanks.

[b]Had very interesting symptoms as a child. Failure to thrive, lactose intollerance, vomiting, recurrent bladder infections, short stature (5ft tall)

Have family on my dads side dx celiac.

Yes you can. The celiac world is not all figured out yet. There is so much more research they need to do. There are many who feel that gluten intolerance is just the beginning stages of celiac disease, celiac being the final stage, the worst damage. There also are those who will argue this point. I honestly believe it.

Gluten does horrible things to those who are considered gluten intolerant. I have double DQ1 genes, some doctors and scientists believe you can't be celiac unless you have DQ2 or 8 genes, some do not agree with that opinion. I don't agree either, and I think the day will come when the others realize they are wrong.

It doesn't really matter to me. I have been as sick as anyone who has an official diagnosis. Double DQ1 genes means just that, double trouble. 8 yrs of gluten free and I am still trying to figure out all of my intolerance's...I think I may have finally got it all in control.

The only truth in this all: whether you are celiac or gluten intolerant, it's the same RX for everyone...gluten free for life!!!

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

Celiac and gluten intolerance are pretty much the same thing just on different ends of a spectrum. Celiacs have villi damage and intolerant people don't, but could in the future. Just like darlindeb25 said, the way to solve both is to eat gluten free.


1989: I am diagnosed with IBS.

3/08: 8-year-old son diagnosed with Celiac (blood test and biopsy) and allergies to corn, egg whites, soy, peanuts, walnuts, wheat, and clam.

6/08: My Celiac test is negative.

7/08: I go completely gluten free despite negative test and NO MORE IBS SYMPTOMS!!

7/09: My Enterolab gluten sensitivity gene testing results indicate I have one Celiac gene and one gluten sensitivity gene.

8/09: I am diagnosed with Celiac based on gene testing results and positive response to diet.
