Antibiotic Absorbtion?
0

3 posts in this topic

I am self diagnosed by a gluten-free diet. (What a difference!) I have developed an infection on the knuckle of my hand. The doc is concerned about a bone infection if it doesn't improve.

I first had an injection of an antibiotic to be followed up with a regimine of pills. I should have seen an improvement within 2 days. I didn't, so back to the Doc for another injection and a different antibiotic. It's 5 days later with no real improvement in swelling and pain and I'm wondering if because of celiac disease the antibiotic can't be absorbed.

Here is a quote I just read online about bone infection treatment:

Parenterally administered antibiotics are usually employed, but oral therapy is also effective when the pathogen is sufficiently susceptible and gastrointestinal absorption is ensured.

Thanks for all the info I've gained from this board. Hopefully, someone knows something about this. My Doc is pretty clueless when it comes to celiac disease.

Sincerely,

Bobbi

The injections go directly to your blood stream, so there should be no issues with them. They never go into your intestines, so nothing to worry about with them.

As far as the others go, I have always been told not to worry about it, they will be absorbed. Maybe someone has some research on this issue. I just know what I have been told in the past.

Thanks Jessica. Yes, I know the injections skip the gastro tract. I was given injections as a jump start for treatment. Could be I'm not getting the right anti-biotic or possibly it's not being properly absorbed because of celiac disease. Looks like I'll have to return to the Doctor today. I don't want to end up in the hospital with an I.V. drip if it turns into a bone infection.

Best to all.........

Bobbi

    • Hi!  I found this article very helpful.  http://hypothyroidmom.com/10-nutrient-deficiencies-every-thyroid-patient-should-have-checked/ Hope this helps.
    • How long have you been gluten-free? Took my dh many months to go away after I mastered the diet.
    • What a great post! I will reply, I'm very interested in this topic too, but I'll do it when I have enough time to do your questions justice.  
    • Hello I also tested negative after being convinced it would be positive. If you're interested in learning more about NCGS I collected a few links here. One thing I wanted to comment on is the idea that NCGS means you don't have to be as careful about slipping from the diet. My own experience is that very small amounts of cross contamination can cause symptoms to return. Mostly neuro rather than GI. Of course others may have different experiences, this condition is not yet fully understood. However this is what one of the leading researchers Umberto Volta says: The good news is all my symptoms resolve on the diet. Hopefully that will also be the case for your daughter too. You will both find things get easier as you get more used to the diet, better at reading labels and more comfortable with the 'safe' brands you get to know and trust. It will get easier for you both, just may be rough at the outset.  Best of luck!
    • Kareng, you bring up an interesting question.  She sees a pediatric GI who diagnosed her with NCGI.  She tested negative on blood work and biopsy was negative 3 years ago.  She continued struggling with stomaches, vomiting, headaches, emotional behavior, fatigue or hyperactivity, constipation, etc.  he thought for sure she was celiac 3 years ago but tested negative.  When we returned for a follow up as the symptoms were increasing, he diagnosed the NCGI.  I do have to say besides the snow cone incident, she has felt better the last 3 weeks than in a long time.  Should I be looking for a second opinion?  I just want her to feel better.
