Progression Of Untreated Celiac

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

An asymptomatic celiac can develop internal problems not associated with celiac by general doctors. Depression, Diabetics, Cancer and others also.

Can this asymptomatic celiac progress until he shows the classic signs of celiac.

I have to wonder now, how many other problems I might NOT have had I always been gluten free.

I am reading "Dangerous Grains" and it really been a good book.

Yes it can progress. I am a case in point. I have been celiac since childhood when I developed DH. Neuro issues came next and then fatigue and arthritis and eventually the intestinal issues became more prominent. When most folks think of asymptomatic celiac they are talking about celiac without severe gut issues but even without the gut issues other organs can be severely impacted.

I know it must be hard to be gluten free when folks don't have the severe symptoms that keep many of us strict on the diet but they still need to be strictly gluten free.

I just got a book that someone here recommended..Recognizing Celiac Disease..Signs, Symptoms, Associated Disorders and Complications by Cleo J. Libonati.

In this book it tells all sorts of other things that can be "Atypical" symptoms and side effects. It's really quite amazing how gluten can affect every part of your body.

The book has charts that you can look up a symptom and it tells if it's Celiac related, or malabsorption related, and what vitamins/minerals to offset it. I highly recommend the book!

I think that may have been me. :lol: I send the link to that site and that book to everyone I can think of ---because when I was very ill and kept "googling" my many symptoms in a desparate attempt to figure it all out, I started to see the connection to gluten and celiac.

Like Ravenwood, I had dozens of conditions (before and after gastro stuff) develop in my life that make sense NOW. (gall bladder, arthritis, miscarriages, anemia, neuropathy, joint/bone pain, burning nerve pain, weak muscles, massive weight loss, insomnia, etc....) My life may have been VERY different had I known about celiac disease/gluten as a child.

Reading about the "atypical" symptoms saved my life and my sanity. I was finally DXed (after I got genetic testing) went gluten-free and started healing. It was all the atypical symptoms that perplexed the doctors and left me to suffer for many years. So, this book made sense of all the debilitating, bizarre, crippling symptoms I developed because of celiac disease and vitamin/mineral deficiencies from malabsorption.

Here is the link--take a look!
