Can Celiac Cause Other Intolerances?

I'm 17 and still undiagnosed. 

 

 

Lately I've been having more of what I think is a sensitivity to dairy than ever. I wasn't always like this. I always avoided milk just because it skeeved me out.. but I always eat yogurt and things of that nature. Lately it's been making my stomach gurgle A LOT. Or at leas that's what I think is making my stomach gurgle. Come to think of it.. I would always feel sick after I had a big mug of hot chocolate.. but that's the only thing that would really do it.

 

In addition to that I believe that I have an egg intolerance. I certainly haven't had this my whole life. I can still eat egg just fine when baked into a cake (well.. now a gluten free cake or something).. It was always fine when egg is just an ingredient. However... probably around 13 years old I became unable to eat egg in scrambled, hard boiled, or mostly egg form without nearly vomiting. I was still able to eat french toast though! I have about a million other food allergies as well and just got diagnosed with more today. I was feeling frustrated with food and didn't want to make anything for myself so I just ate what my mom made for herself.... an omelette. The eggs are totally fresh, we have chickens as pets and for eggs. So it has nothing to do with bad eggs. I figured that I might as well just force myself to eat the omelette but I only got a few bites in before feeling extremely sick to my stomach. Even the smell makes me feel ill.

 

Can celiac cause other food intolerances? Especially to egg and lactose?

Yes, but a person can be intolerant of eggs, dairy or any other food without having Celiac Disease.

 

Did you receive your results?

 

Decide that you were definitely not having an endoscopy?  If so, how many days/weeks have you been gluten-free now?  During the first days, weeks and even months gluten-free a person's system can react to almost anything.  It doesn't necessarily mean you ingested gluten or you are intolerant of a particular food....your system is simply trying to adjust.

 

If there is a food that has bothered you in the past...leave it out of your diet for now.  Trial it again after at least three months gluten-free.

Have you been tested?

 

Okay, forget I asked that one...I read your other posts. I am up to date now.

:)

New to site, but intolerance seems to be the name of the game for me lately.  I was diagnosed a couple of years ago.  Didn't know much about gluten, hell I hadn't even heard of celiac disease until I was diagnosed.  It explained alot of problems I had over the years and I was totally baffled as to why this had not been found earlier in my life.  So onto the now...I recently had a flare up of severe itching, then came the tiredness, nausea, light headness sensitive to cold, it was relentless.  After about 6 wks, I went to the doctor.  He ran blood work and came up with low vit c, low iron, low d, all else is normal.  Dermatologist says I have contact dermatitis.  This is what I know, I have been more than careful with being gluten free, after pushing my luck and realizing that the skin reacts to gluten in a very awful way.  Now, I am waiting to see what happens with adding c, d and iron back in with supplements.  Also considering changing doctor to an internist.  Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, I am at my wits end.

Sorry to hear that you have been feeling unwell. Glad to hear that you are taking celiac disease more seriously. Take a few moments to read the newbie section under "coping". It points out many hidden sources of gluten.

Welcome to the forum! Be patient. It takes time to heal!

    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
    • The full celiac panel checks TTG IGA and IGG, DGP IGA and IGG, IGA, EMA as Jmg stated above. Your test included TTG IGA and IGA. If your IGA was low, a low on TTG IGA would be inconclusive. But your IGA is fine. A high on any one test is a positive for celiac and should lead to an endoscopy for confirmation. So I'd get tested for TTG IGG, DGP IGA and IGG and EMA since there are symptoms. Warning I'm not a doc.    
    • I did a gluten challenge for my endoscopy and requested a second blood test after my follow up with the consultant. I never did see those results but my GP said no celiac was indicated:  Which left me gluten free for life, that wasn't an option after the challenge, but with a less satisfactory diagnosis, one by omission rather than the definitive 'you're celiac' one I was expecting. Yes! I have been 'properly' glutened on a couple of occasions but on several more I've detected a change or a reaction based on what could only have been trace amounts. NCGS is as yet poorly understood but patients tend to have more neuro symptoms than digestive. That's definitely been my experience, although it was only after going gluten free that I realised quite how many digestive symptoms I had just been living with as 'normal'. Close friends and family get the full explanation. 'I have an auto immune disease similar to 'coeliac etc.' If they stay awake long enough I'll tell them about the less than perfect testing process I went through or the Columbia Med research and the possibility of a blood test soon.  They can see the difference between me on gluten and off it so they understand its not all in my head* If I'm ordering food in a restauarant or asking questions about food prep etc I will often just self declare as coeliac - people are aware of that and understand those requests are medical rather than fad diet based. I don't have any problem doing this, I'm not going to claim that and then cheat on dessert for instance and to be honest I expect once the research is complete the two conditions may wind up alongside others as different faces of the same coin.   In the meantime I safeguard my health and avoid getting into a detailed conversation about genuine gluten sensitivity versus faux hipster posturing!       *apart from the bits which are in my head  
    • I originally had it on my face and scalp. (22 years ago)  First biopsy with dermatologist came back as folliculitis.  Then when I had a new outbreak on my upper back, she was able to remove a nice clean blister and we got the diagnosis of DH.  She started me on Dapsone (100mg/day) and gluten free diet.  Now I take 25-50 mg/day.  My understanding at the time was that DH was the skin version of Celiac.  Did a lot of research on my own.  I met Dr. Peter Green at a Gluten free Vendors Fair and he said that a diagnosis of DH  IS a diagnosis of Celiac, even if no other symptoms.    So I stay gluten-free
