Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi my husband has been having really bad stomach issue recently and the doctors just recently diagnosed him after six months with gastroparesis but i have been looking at celiacs and i feel like all his symptoms fit could it be that the doctors got it wrong? I am so confused and just dont know what to think. What are some symptoms that are major for this disease. Thanks!

There is a FAQ section at the top of each forum. Here is a direct link to it:

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/forum-13/announcement-3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/

You can find a list of common symptoms along with a lot of other info.

Quite honestly, the longer I've been at this (on this site) the question becomes "What ISN'T a symptom of Celiac Disease?"

If you suspect Celiac Disease, it certainly wouldn't hurt to get tested for it. Make sure your husband stays on a regular (gluten filled) diet until all testing is done.

From a personal experience, my daughter was diagnosed with both Celiac Disease and (mild) Gastroparesis. The GI thought the Gastroparesis was a result of damage done by the Celiac Disease and that once she was on the gluten free diet for a while and had a chance to heal that the gastroparesis would resolve itself. It did.

I have seen others on the board that do have both. Do a search on gastroparesis and you will find some threads on the topic.

Thanks so much!! That really does help a lot and makes me have a little hope that we can figure out to stop his stomach pains.
