Yeast Overgrowth Same Symptoms As Celiac

4 posts in this topic

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.

    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
