Fatty Liver, Hashimotos, Celiac?/

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with Hashimotes in 2007 and after that I was tested for celiac disease because they are common together. My antibodies from the blood test said I had celiac (twice), but a biopsy said I did not. So for the last 2-3 years I have just contiuned to eat gluten and I recently went in for a physical and blood work and an ultra sound said I have a fatty liver. I have never had a drink of alcchol in my life and I am skinny at 5 ft 5in and 106lbs. I was wondering if this could be due to having celiac disease?

CONCLUSION: Coeliac disease should be considered in any case of fatty liver of unknown cause. Strict gluten-free dietary treatment of the underlying cause can quickly lead to complete regression of the hepatic changes

Other factors, such as drugs (eg, amiodarone, tamoxifen, methotrexate), alcohol, metabolic abnormalities (eg, galactosemia, glycogen storage diseases, homocystinuria, tyrosinemia), nutritional status (eg, overnutrition, severe malnutrition, total parenteral nutrition [TPN], starvation diet), or other health problems (eg, celiac sprue, Wilson disease) may contribute to fatty liver disease

yes in my opinion- it could most definitely be from having celiac, yet continuing to eat gluten. my mom and i have both had congested gall bladders (as well as hashi). eating gluten when your body isnt designed for it can lead to all kinds of things.

why did u go back to gluten after positive blood tests??

remember- fatty liver doesnt have to have any thing to do with alcohol... did u ever see Super Size Me?? after 2 weeks on the McD's diet- his doctor said he had the liver of an alcoholic

Because the biopsy said I was negative

you can have a negative on your biopsy and still have celiac... villi destruction can be patchy- if your doc didnt take enough biopsies from different areas- he could have missed something.

if your bloodwork is pretty positive- (even tho many docs say you have to have the biopsy gold standard)- than you have your proof
