I have had Celiac Disease for years and really starting having problems about 5 years ago.

 

I take meds on a regular basis and I printed a list to take to my Dr.  We tried to use other med but Bystolic is the only one that help with my BP and HR.

Now I'm in a celiac crisis and don't know what to do.  I'm so burn't out trying to stay healthy.  I get violently sick for days and have to be admitted into the hospital.

Does anyone have a suggestion about any meds that are close to Bystolic?  I have been trying to use other BP meds and they cause me to swell.

 

Thanks to anyone that has any suggestions.

You may need to have it made at a compounding pharmacy if you don't find a substitute.

Oh, good suggestion!

 

I went directly to my pharmacist to ask about my meds, not my doctor.  I always get better info directly from the people who deal with the meds and manufacturers.

Thank you both.  Still some manufacturers still have no idea.  I even printed a list of all gluten free meds.  The meds that are gluten free are not helping my hereditary high BP

This has been crossing my mind lately too.  I am on multiple medications.  I don't have a severe gluten intolerance but still.  I have a question, if I take a generic of a gluten free medication I guess there would be a possibility the coating of the generic could have gluten, correct?

Any medication can contain gluten (inside and the coating). You have to check with the manufacturer. You can ask the pharmacist to help you.

Yes, gluten is used as a binding agent so you can't be sure either way.

    • So I think my daughter is reacting to Dairy?  I only really removed it 100% from her diet for a few weeks and then SLOWLY let her have some because of how difficult it was to find substitutes she liked and she was still reeling with the emotions of being restricted from so many foods.  The smell amts of dairy we allowed had no adverse effect on her (so we thought) and her improvements were still so profound and immense we felt confident that dairy was not an issue. Cue the Cheerios.  We allowed her "oats" again and Cheerios require milk and within a week BOOM all her symptoms were back - difficulty swallowing, hearing issues, dh rash on her scalp, tired, confused. Naturally I accused the oats of being the devil! So that was a week ago that I figured out that oats were evil and have easily eliminated them as Cheerios were the only source. Well here I am and she is NOT getting better.  In fact...she is now having extreme SPD symptoms again.  Things are too loud.  Smells are too strong. Her clothes feel weird, her bedding feels weird.  This all overlapped with the onset of a pretty bad head cold so I tried to be patient.  But a full week later...I think it's the dairy? I have an apt with a Naturopath to test for food sensitivities and I am wondering about having the Dr test her scalp rash? Any thoughts?  Do we assume it's dairy or could a cold on top of an oat cross contamination still be causing problems?
    • Next time just take a box of rat poisoning and extract ONE granule.  Toss it into his food (while he is watching) and give it a good stir.  Hand the food over and see if he is willing to eat it.
    • Gertrude.....just a few comments after reading your posts..........no other disease but Celiac disease will cause a positive on the EMA test.  I have never heard of a false positive on that either.  It is a test that is done by hand and not by a machine because of the way it has to be done, so having a false positive is almost impossible.  Your doctor should have known that.  Many people trip just 1 or 2 tests on the panel and they have Celiac Disease.  With autoimmune testing, you can test 2 different people with Celiac Disease and they can have wildly different test results.  Couple those with a positive gene test and the likelihood of it being Celiac is almost 100%.  The fact that the doc didn't find villus atrophy just means the damage is not extensive enough for them to find.......yet.  I am sure they would prefer you to keep eating gluten until that happens but you do not want to do that.  So.........after you have been gluten-free for awhile, have them run the Celiac panel again to see if your EMA goes to normal, which it should if you eat very gluten free. With positive gene results, positives on your Celiac antibody testing, and positive dietary response, that is a diagnosis!
    • That's great, Gertrude! I'm glad your doctors sound more competent than mine. And that you're starting to feel better.  I haven't had any abdominal or joint pain in the last few days, and I feel like I have more energy for sure. I've been feeling a little off/dizzy but that might be from gluten withdrawal.  Good luck with everything! 
    • By the way, I got my biopsy pathology report and the doctor took 2 biopsies, not the recommended 4-6. It says no "significant villous blunting not seen." I don't know if I should laugh or cry---so frustrating.
