Hepatitis B Vaccine....

I will start off saying, this is just something I was told by my son's GI doctor today. I have no sources and honestly in all the reading I've been doing since learning it was even a possibility that my youngest has Celiac I haven't come across any mentions of it. Though, I will admit, I tried to stay away from all the related disorders and such because I didn't want to freak myself out even more. :)

 

So, I have no sources other than "I heard it from" but maybe someone else has a source or something.

We went in to the GI today to get the result of my son's endoscopy. Biopsy results showed up negative but due to some scalloping we've decided to go ahead and try the gluten-free diet (his tTG IgA was a weak positive). During the course of our discussion we decided to do another blood test for the EMA IgG, genetics and apparently she wants to run a test to make sure his Hep B vaccine has done what it needs to do. She said she was part of a study and they found that 56% of the patients were found to not have the protection from the vaccine that needed to be there...or was expected to be there.

I can't remember why she said the issue was there but I know it had something to do with gluten....either the antibodies your body produces or that there was gluten in the vaccine....that part's kind of fuzzy...there was a lot of information being thrown at me and that was one of the few things that was really new information.

But, even though, I'm not an expert...by any means...and I know we're supposed to follow info like this up....I don't even know where I would find reputable information that I could post here. Our GI is a Pedi GI @ UW Children's Health in Madison, WI....if that helps anyone.

yes that is true.  I have seen that numerous places.  It appears people with Celiac may require multiple tries at the Hep B vaccine.  This does not appear to be true with other vaccines.

Thank you for the links! So much information entering my head lately and that one was brought up yesterday at my appointment and I just hadn't seen anything about it. Though....I really was trying to avoid the associated stuff so that probably had something to do with it. Probably would have freaked me out. I'm glad it's common knowledge though so people can make sure those vaccinations stick.

    • Reality check in the past few weeks, looks like I got glutened at what should be a "safe" restaurant for gluten-free and gone right back to the beginning again recovery-wise Now too scared to eat anywhere and turning down social opportunities because of the food issues, what a miserable way to live this is.
    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
    • They rotate growing rice and oats in the same crop. I unfortunately am intolerant to oats.  I have Dysbiosis according to a stool test, which is why I am quite sensitive to gluten among other foods.  May I ask what AI you have that makes you sensitive to carbs? I have been in and out of the doctor since November 2016 with chronic pain.  Trying to figure out what is going on with my gut, it's terrifying. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice from Thailand the other day which was recommended in 2009 by someone on here and a few hours later had the worst low blood sugar attack I'd ever had in my life. I am severely underweight due to the pain and I think this happened because I ate a bit too much (I LOVE rice) upon my first introduction back into my diet.  Even so I reacted just as I do when I ingest gluten (intense anxiety/hard to breathe/fast heart beat/constipation/intense pain under my ribs) So I don't think Dynasty is a safe brand, not for me at least. I only react this way to gluten. My other food sensitivities, the symptoms pop up around 24 hours later and are completely different. 
    • Thanks so much for the information. I tried Dynasty jasmine rice which was a recommendation from a sensitive individual on here. The post I believe was from 2009 so there's plenty of time for practices to have changed. I only ask this here again for updated information as I tried the Dynasty brand and got sick. I do not have Celiac disease (according to an Endoscopy) however, I have been gluten-free for 2 years and only ate a cookie or a donut maybe a few times a month for a year and a half before I was tested. I actually like going without gluten as I get less low blood sugar attacks and rarely ever get migraines. Not to mention, before I had the Endoscopy I was fasting for 2 days with no food or drink while I received other tests while I was in the hospital. I also got a colonoscopy at the same time so I had to clear my system out completely. My doctor believes I have a non-Celiac gluten sensitivity due to my symptoms after ingesting gluten. I was diagnosed with Dysbiosis so it could be my body lacks the correct bacteria to break down gluten. I have several other food intolerances including dairy and oats which many facilities process along with rice.
