Celiac Disease With Other Medical Conditions

First off, I was originally diagnosed with Celiac Disease, then, my oldest son. Now, my youngest son has been diagnosed with Celiac Disease through his most recent panel of blood test at the Childrens Hospital in Denver CO. For me it was not too difficult to accept this condition. My oldest son and youngest son, are finding it very difficult to changer their eating habits around. It is also very hard to find food groups to eat from as well. Foods that do not contain gluten are very limited with them. My oldest son has and youngest son are also being looked at and examined for Hyperinsulinism Hypoglycemia as well. I have it at present time together with Celiac Disease. It is a big storm coming down on us as a family at this time. I have my diet all worked out for me but, the sons do not have it worked out for them yet. So, right now we as a family have not been coping with this disease.

How many hear have other medical condition in addition to Celiac Disease? I was recently diagnosed with Hyperinsulinism Hypoglycemia in addition to the Celiac Disease. I have known all my life to have this condition but, was never really able to prove it until now. My older family member knew, I had some medical problems since birth but, they never really had a name for it. I was never abled to tolerate wheat gluten but, my mother made me eat it anyways back in the days since we were as poor as church mice. I also had a problem with hypoglycemia all my life right straight through the US Army and afterwards as well. I would loose weight and gain weight practically over night and some years I would be a thin and boney as a rail other years, I would be very over-weight. The last 10 years I have been very under-weight and stayed that way. I have had papitations as well as light heart attacks, and sudden heart attacks. All this was due to my diet and low blood sugar situation. My current doctors diagnosed me with Hyperinsulinism Hypoglycemia and Celiac Disease as well. I am now on a bland diet and it seems to be helping out allot but, it may be too late for me to live much longer according to the doctors. I am so glad that my children have been diagnosed and found out their condtion while they still have time to get everything under control in their lives, instead of having to wait so long as I had to do.

ive got Celiac, Hashimoto's, and Grave's.

why would your conditions make u not live too much longer???? i understand hypoglycemia, but i dont know anything about the other condition?

my blood sugar is so much more stable since going gluten free. and also i try to eat fat &/or protein with every meal- otherwise my sugar will drop.

i also suspect that i may have been starting to develop Interstitial Cystitis- but i dont feel that anymore since going gluten free.
