  1. Does anyone know a tetracycline that is guaranteed gluten free? I hear such conflicting information. I have called some manufacturers and they say they cannot guarantee gluten free. What is someone with celiac disease supposed to do who has an infection to treat? Thanks in advance
  2. Thanks everyone for the replies, At first I thought it was pancreatitis but when I went to my doctor he didn't think it was...just the lipase mildly elevated. But...I have stinging abdominal pain and I assume that I inadvertently got gluten through some medication I was taking that I didn't check out well enough. Well now I am off the medication and I feel like I am starting at square one again in regard to getting well again from the gluten damage to my intestinal tract. I guess I will stay on clear liquids for a few days and then slowly add back food. It is interesting to find out so many people with gluten intolerance have elevated lipases. It scares you though when the doctors tell you that. So thanks again..I will keep everyone informed. I am holding off on CT scans and ultrasounds for now and see how I feel.
  3. To Be Or Not To Be

    Hi there, I actually saw your earlier posts over on medhelp and then was surprised to see you here. I too have a slightly elevated lipase. I believe I made have got gluten through some meds. All my other labs were normal except the lipase at 158. normal <90 at my labs. My symptoms....weight loss, headaches, nausea, stinging throughout my stomach area. No fever, no jaundice, no boring pancreatic pain etc. I am thinking I may be having a flare up of gluten intolerance after 13 years. I am off the meds now and will be extremely careful what I eat. I really think it may be the gluten intolerance.
  4. Hi there, I am new to this forum but not to celiac disease. I have been pretty good with my diet for the last 13 years and was very healthy. Just recently I have been experiencing some of my old gluten symptoms. Nausea, stinging in my intestinal track, weight loss, headaches, a hung over feeling etc. The only lab that was elevated was a slightly elevated lipase. Does anyone else have an elevated lipase with gluten intolerance. I think I may have inadvertently gotten gluten from some meds I was taking. Any take?
