Yeast Overgrowth Same Symptoms As Celiac

Recommended Posts

I have all the celiac symptoms. Felt better from eating gluten-free even better when avoiding SUGAR I have just learned. Thought I might have DH on my elbows but its more of a poriasis look. The rash has cleared up more in 1 week from a kidding refined sugar than 1 year gluten-free. Problem is candida creates a gluten intorelance, I get the instant brain fog ect just like celiac. So I don't know if I have celiac which has caused a yeast overgrowth, or a yeast overgrowth resulting In a gluten intorelance. Anyone going through this?

This is my life - I cut out sugar...still sick.  Cut out gluten, got better (rash gone).  Brought sugar back..got sick rash came back.  If I eat sugar or any carbs whatsoever, my scalp breaks out in flakes, my face gets red/oily and starts to burn, and eventually, the itchy rash on my elbows will come back.  I am no longer getting the yeast infections (knock on every piece of wood known to man), but I think that's because I stopped taking the bc pill a year ago.  During a particularly bad PMS week, I threw caution to the wind and had a few glasses of wine and some cream cheese frosting (don't judge)...next day, itchy head, oily gross skin, irritable attitude...know what that lead to?  Anger and more indulging!!  Stupid endless cycle of crap.  If I'm very strict on my no sugar, no alcohol, no carb diet, I feel great.  But then I end up pissed at the world cause I can't even have a glass of wine with friends on a warm Spring afternoon!!!  Someday I'll either stop whining or figure out a different solution...until then, I'm in the same boat with you.  Wish I had something more positive to share.

This is coming from a Super-Sensitive standpoint:


I am not eating sweets.  (since 7 Years)   I haven't had gluten for about a year.  I am avoiding grains.  (l year)  I am avoiding foods I have antibodies to (6 weeks)  Both when I began avoiding grains and other intolerances I experienced a "yeast cleanse."  Hopefully, this will do the trick!


In my thoughts, I think the celiac came first and lowered my immunity level.  I am thinking that my intense sweet tooth, when I was little, fed the yeast.  I also had several long and short pennecilin shots when I was young.  This kills the good bacteria in the gut and leaves plenty of yeast and bad guys to take over.


I am feeling so much better that I don't mind not eating sweets so much.  The exception being when I am eaten in front of.  I am feeling less upset about that as I realize that not everyone has as big a problem as I would.

    • Teresa,  You posted this same question yesterday.  You did get a response, but you did not answer the questions asked which might help you.  We can not diagnose you over the internet.  We are not doctors, but just people who can not consume gluten.  We share tips, our personal experiences, and ask questions about the gluten free diet.   If you have or suspect DH, read through the DH section for coping strategies.  Keep to the gluten free diet.  Talk to your doctor!  It might NOT even be related to celiac disease!  
    • My suspicion is dehydration caused by too much fiber. Combined with your cold, fever and perhaps any medications, loss of appetite and the high fiber content of the chia, slowing down the passage of the post nasal drip thereby giving it more time to irritate. I had a similar experience with Graviola during a phase of anorexia, when I would take it without food. By the way, Cold-Eze does work.
    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.  
    • I have granuloma on both of my feet and got them after I had my daughter. She's now 2!! Not eating gluten has not effected it in the least.  I had a major flair up after my colonoscopy and an exploratory surgery, neither had anything to do with my feet . 
    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
