Celiac & Gerd?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was dx with celiac 3 years ago, and have done well on the diet. However, I suddenly have developed reflux symptoms, seemingly out of the blue. I have read that GERD often goes with celiac, but has anyone ever developed it fairly suddenly?

Thanks, Dinah

About 4 years after my daughter was diagnosed with Celiac, she developed severe GERD symptoms. She was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis. EE was just given a standardized medical code in October 2008. We will have to wait and see if it will be proven to have a correlation to Celiac. It seems there are a lot of diagnoses and complaints of GERD along with Celiac and other issues. (i.e. Barrett's Esophagas) My opinion, an auto-immune response to gluten causes damage and it may be happening before the gluten is in the small intestine. I would consult a specialist and determine any treatment plan for the GERD symptoms.

I only had it before not after. If I have any symptoms start to creep up, I know I've eaten something I'm sensitive too, like too many complex carbs.

My son developed GERD suddenly. That is how he was diagnosed with celiac. Now it has come back because he started running. We are going to make some changes to his diet to see if we can get rid of it again.
