Chron's Related To Celiac?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with Celiac in Nov. 2010. I still have a lot of bloating and gas and wonder if I might have Chron's as well. When the Dr does an endosocopy for Celiac (I had one) can they also detect Chron's at the same time? I don't really want to be diagnosed with another intestinal issue, but I wonder if I have something else besides Celiac. The last few days I feel so gassy...like there's pressure in my upper abdomen and it can't escape. It's awful.

Does anyone here have Chron's? I just researched some info and it sounds like Chron's is very similar to Celiac.

They can go hand in hand together.

The pressure in your upper abdomen and gassy feeling could also be a stomach ulcer...hmm.

THey don't just do an endo for crohn's, they do things like colonoscopy, barium tests, xrays etc etc.

The two diseases share a common gene. However, I'm wondering if you might simply be sensitive to another food, such as dairy or soy. Many celiacs can't eat one or the other (or both). For me, soy makes me feel bloated and gassy, and then I end up having diarrhea.

Have you tried eliminating other foods yet?

Lately I feel like everything makes me gassy! I think soy and dairy sometimes makes me gassy. EVERYTHING makes me gassy. I think I should just drink water and eat rice. lol

This was my thought also. If you have an intolerance your issue may not show up quickly but appear a up to a week later. So if you are eating something you have an intolerance to a couple times a week it could make you feel ill constantly because you are still reacting when you add in another dose of it.

You may want to go with a very clean, unprocessed diet and eliminate both for a bit and then if problems resolve add each back in one at a time for at least a week and then see if the problem returns.

Hello,

The doctors could detect Crohn's disease if it is in the area of the endoscopy. However, Crohn's disease can happen anywhere along the digestive track. My brother has Crohn's disease so they did a colonoscopy at the same time as the endoscopy to check and make sure there was nothing else going on in addition to the Ceilac. I have GERD symptoms that are like what you describe. I didn't know that it was GERD before going to the doctor as I had never thought about something like that.
