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.

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!

    • This page on the Pepsi site has a chart that lists allergens that are in some of their beverages. http://www.pepsicobeveragefacts.com/home/Allergens It's a pretty handy chart to look at and find the info.  Their sodas are not listed as having wheat, but they didn't put barley in the chart.  Rats.
    • I tried saving receipts and itemizing everything one year. It came out just a few dollars below the standard deduction so I don't even bother anymore. Plus, I don't eat much bread or noodles, the older I get. The hassle of being gluten free has turned me into a fresh fruit, vegetable and meat person.  Good luck.
    • Thanks Ennis and cycling lady, Ennis thanks for letting me know I'm not alone on the goofy intolerance stuff. cycling lady I'd love an orange tree that must be great to just go pluck one to get your serving. We do fruits regularly here too.  I just test the lands of processed land occasionally and apparently the land mines are everywhere. I chose homemade almond milk today.  I am just perplexed my son reacted too which is the concerning thing to me. From the research I've done and your suggestions it's best we remove the product from our list of potential items for it clearly is not a match. have a good day
    • Drop the dairy and if your eating any drop oats. Enzymes to digest lactose are produced by the tips of the villi, so your going to have issues with til they heal. Remove for a few months at least change over to a nut based milk, some hard cheeses might still be fine but you might want to change over to vegan/dairy free versions of it for a while then try reintroducing them.  Fruits yeah large amounts of sugar are more of a issue then the fiber and bother are going to cause bloating, gas, etc. Try eating more dark green leafy veggies, smaller amounts of fruit and eating nuts, seeds, etc in there to up fiber without the sugar and get some fats in there that way, If you eat meats stews, soups in large pots are going to be your friend for awhile easy, simple, cheap, and can be done in batches, and portioned off for a week at a time. Check out the 101 thread for more info, I think some of our EU members can help you more with finding products that I can, same with supplements. Cross contamination and chances your still eating gluten unknowingly are highly possible there is a HUGE learning curve refer to hte 101 thread for more info. That covers the basics. welcome to the club? https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful.
