Acid Reflux

Recommended Posts

The original post was a long time ago. 2005

My daughter has probable Celiac disease and Eosinophilic Esophagitus. The EE has severe GERD like symptoms and there is a connection to "food triggers" or airborn allergens. The testing would have to be done through an endoscopy with biopsy and specifically ordered pathology report. The eosinophils can be embedded in normal looking tissue.

A hernia, H. Ployri, intestinal parasites, and organ defects can also cause some of the same symptoms to name a few options.

Celiac sufferers have noticed GERd symptoms have dissappeared after going gluten free.

My first symptom of celiac disease was nausea. I was put on gluten free diet on Nov 6, 2011 and am still having nausea off and on. My doctor after several visits decided I did need some help and put me on a nausea patch you wear behind the ear. She also put me on steroids which I really hate to take because I feel they do as much harm as good. Of course, they would help my colon heal faster, but still don't like them. This disease I have found to have more than one symptom and seems to be several diseases. I hope some day research can tell us more and we will know better how to cope with all these strange symptoms. I'm looking forward to that day!!

Sorry that you are so young and feeling so poorly. Have you been officially tested and diagnosed for Celiac Disease? I ask, because going gluten free will render the official testing inaccurate if you are gluten free, should you decide to take the full Celiac Panel Test.
