I have almost all of the symptoms listed for Celiac disease. But I also have a few things that I'm not sure if it would fall under this. Stress, smoking, and medication (mainly antibiotics) just tear me up. It doesn't make sense that these would fall under Celiac..does anybody else have these problems?? Most of my problems are generally right after I eat..but sometimes they come out of nowhere. And I don't generally have any really bad problems when I'm sleeping. 99% of the time it's when I'm awake. Any thoughts on this??

DEAR KAYLEEN,

HERE ARE SOME IDEAS, AS RESPONSES TO WHAT YOU WROTE:

I have almost all of the symptoms listed for Celiac disease.

HAVE YOU TRIED A (STRICTLY) GLUTEN-FREE DIET, FOR A MONTH, TO SEE IF THIS HELPS YOU TO FEEL BETTER?

------------------------

But I also have a few things that I'm not sure if it would fall under this. Stress, smoking, and medication (mainly antibiotics) just tear me up.

GLUTEN INTOLERANCE CAN CAUSE DEPRESSION, SO A GLUTEN-FREE DIET CAN HELP WITH GLUTEN-INDUCED STRESS! AND, YOU COULD LOOK FOR A KIND, PSYCHOLOGIST, OR COUNSELOR, TO HELP GIVE YOU SOME EMOTIONAL SUPPORT, IN CASE YOU HAVE "SITUATIONAL" STRESS (LIKE MOST PEOPLE DO!).

THE SMOKING HABIT CAN BE CONQUERED, FOR EXAMPLE, WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE GIVING EACHOTHER SUPPORT, TO QUIT. SMOKING CAN CAUSE CONSTRICTION OF BLOOD VESSELS, MAKING DIGESTIVE PROBLEMS WORSE. SMOKING CAN CAUSE ULCERS, TOO.

WHILE YOU'RE ON ANTIBIOTICS, YOU COULD TAKE SOME "PROBIOTICS" THAT ARE BOTH GLUTEN-FREE & MILK-FREE, TO RE-POPULATE THE BENEFICIAL BACTERIA (PROBIOTICS) THAT THE ANTIBIOTICS KILL, IN THE DIGESTIVE TRACT, INCLUDING THE SMALL & LARGE INTESTINES. TAKE THE "PROBIOTICS" HALF WAY BETWEEN ANTIBIOTIC DOSES, TO PREVENT ANTIBIOTICS & PROBIOTICS FROM "NEUTRALIZING" EACHOTHER'S EFFECTS!

PEOPLE HERE MAY HAVE SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FOR "PROBIOTICS" BRANDS THAT ARE GLUTEN-FREE. YOU MIGHT CONSIDER A PROBIOTIC FORMULATION CALLED "DAIRY-FREE MAXI BIFIDUS", MADE BY A COMPANY CALLED "ETHICAL NUTRIENTS". ALTHO THE LABEL DOESN'T SAY GLUTEN-FREE, THE COMPANY SAID (BY PHONE) THAT IT IS GLUTEN-FREE. YOU COULD CHECK, WITH THE COMPANY, BEFORE BUYING IT.

---------------------------

It doesn't make sense that these would fall under Celiac..does anybody else have these problems??

OTHERS WILL BE ALONG TO SHARE IDEAS ABOUT THIS.

----------------------------

Most of my problems are generally right after I eat..but sometimes they come out of nowhere. And I don't generally have any really bad problems when I'm sleeping. 99% of the time it's when I'm awake. Any thoughts on this??

THERE MAY BE DELAYED EFFECTS, DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU ARE INTOLERANT OF, THAT YOU EAT. OTHERS MAY HAVE IDEAS ABOUT THIS, TOO.

ALSO, CHECK OUT DR. FINE'S WEBSITE, ABOUT HIS STOOL TESTING AT HIS "ENTERO-LAB". SEE http://www.finerhealth.com MANY PEOPLE HERE HAVE BENEFITTED FROM THIS NON-INVASIVE STOOL SAMPLE TESTING FOR GLUTEN INTOLERANCE, AND FOR SOME OTHER FOOD INTOLERANCES.

HANG IN THERE. PEOPLE HERE ARE NICE, KNOWLEDGABLE, AND WILL HELP, AND GIVE YOU SUPPORT! :-)

    • if you have celiac and you eat gluten, you will feel terrible and do damage to your body.  there isn't any 'morning after' (for lack of a better term) tried and true remedy.  if i am accidently glutened (and i am insanely careful, so this does not happen often anymore) i find that drinking plenty of water and long, hot showers make me feel better, but it doesn't leave until day 14.  14 days.  ain't nobody got time for that.  no matter what i try, it's naps and snacks for 14 days.  then the fog lifts and my guts stop protesting.  you will get better at avoiding gluten and cc by practicing being gluten free.  i would eat whole foods (avoid processed while your guts are healing) and skip eating out for awhile until you get better at knowing how to determine which restaurants are safe and which ones don't give a crap if they give you the craps <see what i did there lolz) go to the coping page and read the newbie thread.  there is much useful info there - more things to avoid than just bread - and ways to navigate this lifestyle.  welcome to your new normal.  pack a lunch, because if ya got celiac, every day's a picnic.  literally. 
    •   My mistake... HUGE Oops... She hasn't been diagnosed with anything as of yet. I couldn't remember the name so I googled and DH came up. Well that was wrong.... it is Keratosis pilaris she has. i just really don't want her to get to 20 years old and finally become allergic to lactose like her father, and continue to gain so much weight that she needs knee replacements, and diabetes,  and depression, and bipolar, and brain fog and dementia beginning at 48 and dead at 50 like my MIL, or like my mother having allergies to soy, egg, now corn and milk too, also a diabetic.... because of all these allergies she's allergic to a lot of antibiotics and much OTC medicine as well Thank you for your advice thus far
    • i was at a meeting recently, where they serve dinner, ironically the meeting is at a communitiy room at our local hospital (where the meal is catered by the hospital cafeteria and i do not eat BECAUSE THEY CAN'T DO GLUTEN FREE.  AT A HOSPITAL.)  but i digress.... 'oh, my doctor told me i have that, too.  i just can't stop eating bread ha ha ha' as she chomps a bite of dinner roll.   worse?  she's a doctor's wife    ya can't fix stupid 
    • If she was actually diagnosed, by a skin biopsy, for DH, then she has Celiac.  NO need for further testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/  
    • i find that i can tolerate some foods that were off limits to me (soy, certain veggies, ice cream, chocolate, etc) if i do not eat them two days in a row, for whatever reason.  i'm thinking histamines.  whatever it is, i can eat many more/different foods.  i usually eat the same sort of food/meal every 3 days.  i was puzzled why i could eat something one day and be fine.  then eat the same thing the next day and not fine.  seems to be working i thought i had a problem with eggs bc i was eating them nearly every day for breakfast, but if i rotate it with cereal one day, a bagel or waffle or pancakes etc for day 2 then i can have eggs the third day as long as i go back to cereal the next day (for example) i can even tolerate fresh (and frozen lolz) fruit once every 3 days when i thought i couldn't tolerate fruit at all.  so long as i don't eat it tomorrow it's trial and error, and what works for one may not work for another.....  but this seems to be working for me.  right now lolz
