I have realised the last two months, beeing on a gluten challange form my normal glutenfree-light diet, that most of my health conserns are gluten related. I havet been totaly glutenfree, and these things have come and gone without me conecting it to gluten, but now they are all realy just coming and not so much going. But could realy all of this be symptoms of celiac or NCGI? And are they likely to go away if I go totaly glutenfree after my biopsi next week? Also grate if anyone as any insights in wheter it's more likely to be celiac or NGCI..

 

So my symptoms are

 

Realy bad hart burn

Diarrhea/constipation

Abdominal pain

Headaces

Sore mucels

Joint pain

Fatuige

Insomnia

Vomiting

Tingeling in fingers and feet

Easely out of breath

Numbnes in face

Really bad reaction to alcohol

Pain under the soles of my feet

Lower back pain

Sometimes a really bad itch, but no rash

Swelling around my eyes

Brain fog

Problems focusing

Bad temper

Borderline depression

Anxiety

 

Thats all I can think of right now.

If it is Celiac yes your symptoms can go away on a Gluten Free diet , it may take some time!! After 3 months I still have a rash on my back. So I know it doesn't take over night to have symptoms it doesn't go away over night. Not sure what NCGI is Is that the Gluten sensitivity? If so I believe the same way! You don't get there over night so it doesn't go away over night. The smarter peeps will pop in and give better insight :)

Yes, all of those symptoms could be related to gluten, however, they might not be directly related, but rather indirectly related. It is possible that over the years gluten has done damage that might not be undone very easily.

 

For example the heart burn. It may go away immediately on a total gluten-free diet, or it may not. If you have developed further complications, for example, scar tissue formation. I think it is controversial anyway whether reflux is associated with celiac/GS. I believe it is, but some studies have found that it is not. However, personally I don't trust a lot of the studies because of the criteria they use. Celiacs positively diagnosed with biopsy where "healthy" controls in my opinion may not be healthy at all if they have a hidden gluten condition.

 

I have a lot of the same symptoms that you do. For me, going even partly gluten free "cured" about 90% of my anxiety and depression. But it did nothing for my rashes and my numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. The doctor says it will take months of being scrupulously gluten free before I will see improvement in most of my symptoms.

 

In my example, the hands and feet tingling is peripheral nerve damage that has been occurring for more than 20 years. I don't know how long it will take my nerves to repair themselves, if ever. The theory is that celiac gut damage prevented me from absorbing vitamins that are necessary for normal repair of cells, in my case nerve sheath cells, but also cells in every area of your body. If you have had trouble absorbing fat, you could be deficient in the fat soluble vitamins, which can be the direct cause of your symptoms. So removing gluten is key to healing the gut. But the rate at which your symptoms will improve might have more to do with how well you are able to get caught up with your nutrition. This is not always straightforward. For my example again, the gluten problem has caused me to also be sensitive to milk, and milk is where I had been getting all my vitamin D. Now that I am going to give up all dairy as well as gluten, I need to pay attention to getting enough vitamin D as well as calcium and magnesium, and vitamin A and K and zinc, and so forth.

 

So the answer is that yes going gluten free is the first step toward improving most if not all your symptoms, but if you do not have improvement in some of them, you may need to research a little into specific deficiencies and long term damage that may require some extra attention.

Ditto the others, those symptoms could all be caused by gluten intolerance and may go away after time on the gluten-free diet, but if it is a complication created by years of untreated celiac disease, it may not improve.

I had most of your symptoms and most of them are gone after a year. Some of mine were made worse with hypothyroidism so I needed to treat that to get well. Settle in for the long haul, neuro and pain symptoms are often some of the last to improve.

Best wishes.

    • Funny you should mention this, I got a offer for some free ones from that company and just turned it down. The only gluten free products from the company are a 2 lines of dedicated nut type bars. The majority of their bars actually contain either barley (gluten grain) like the biscuits etc. Or whole grain wheat like many of their crunchy and nut and oat bars.   10% of people with celiac can also not tolerate oats btw. If your looking for a good bar many swear by Kind bars for quick nut snack bars. I myself prefer low carb dairy free protein bars like Julian Bakery (acquired taste) and Bhu Foods. If you insist on eating oats I might suggest looking into a company that is dedicated I used to use gluten-free harvest in my bakery, the family that started it has celiac  running in their family. http://www.glutenfreeoats.com/gluten-free-oatmeal/
    • There has been a recent recall of veggies because of listeria risk. Here is the FDA list of recalled items in the US and Canada https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm581389.htm
    • I asked for their two products yesterday,onion and garlic.Onion powder's package doesnt have starch or wheat on ingredient list but garlic powder has corn starch . I dont have any intolerance to corn by the way. They told me they add starch to two of their products so they are not gluten free. I dont understand why they would put on corn starch on list if it contains wheat starch.I sent another mail to them.  I had nausea last night and this morning but im not sure if it is because of powder or something else.  
    • Well endoscopy done this morning. Said that all looked normal no sign of celiac seen normal duodenal cap and preserved villi. but need to wait for biopsies. Report stated  mild antral gastritis with erythema found  but non specific. Seems like they took a lot of Biopsies. Report stated they took them from lower 3rd and middle 3rd of oesophagus,  the antrum of stomach and area in bulb and 1st,2nd and 3rd part of duodenum. So will wait and see two other children in recovery with us had visible damage on their scope so were told they have celiac disease. Dr review clinic not for two weeks. Thanks for everyone for listening we just want some answers now for her increasing fatigue. But maybe it's not celiac after all.     
    • Look at carreggenan. I am a super sensitive Celiac and have the same auto immune reaction to anything made with seaweed, “the wheat of the sea”, such as MSG, carrageenan, agar and sodium alginate. The food industry is putting it in everything, even so called Misbranded gluten free foods. Even some coconut milk brands now are using it as are nut milks. It is a cheap emulsifier, so we do not have to shake things up! How about shaking up my whole body from it! You may have an iron defiency anemia not being treated or tested. Cookbook doctors treat numbers not patients clinical presentation. I have fired five doctors in eight years for stupidity and dangerous lack of clinical acumen which could have killed me. Do not be afraid to ask questions and confront doctors, you are after all the customer paying for their services.  Eat clean, meaning preparing your own foods. Stay out of restaurants! Gluten free is a joke in most restaurants if you are a celiac. And will cost you weeks of illness. Hang in there. Make bone broth, it has super vitamins and minerals and loaded with pre and probiotics. Go to Dr. Axe’s site. I only do chicken made with feet. I am allergic to beef since being bitten by a deer tick in 2011 and getting Chronic Lyme disease. The chicken feet bone broth is also loaded with calcium and is yummy. Takes a little work, but is well worth it. 😊
