I've found that I am shakey a lot and then when I eat surgar it goes away almost instantly, I was wondering if there is any disease that is like this maybe related to celiac disease.

I don't know, but would that have to do with sugar level and diabetes? I have no idea, but I've never heard of that having a connectoin with Celiac Disease.

I don't know what the correlation here is but I was diagnosed because I told my Doctor about gnawing hunger-like pains that I experienced almost constantly. These pains were relieved with the consumption of sugar. If I did not eat or consume sugar I would eventually get very shaky and weak. For some reason when I told her this she decided that she needed to test for celiac and my blood work came back showing high IGG. I then went gluten-free for a month and felt fantastic. Since then I have been consuming gluten for biopsy reasons. I am meeting with the top celiac GI tomorrow and hopefully will be biopsied next week., I can't wait to be done with this I am so sick of being sick. I smashed up my new car earlier this evening because it affects my vision, particulary depth perception. I wonder if anyone else has experienced this? I would greatly appreciate any input on these areas. Thanks!

I don't know if it is related to Celiac or not but I get shaky from time to time too. Normally it is when I haven't eaten in a while or haven't had a lot of sugar. I figure my sugar level in my blood just gets low so I eat some candy or drink some soda and I feel better quickly.

I get shaky too if I haven't eaten. I do know I am VERY sugar sensitive. I can't have too much or not enough.

My mother has always had to be careful with the amount of sugar in her diet as well. I don't think it is related to Celiac, she doesn't have it, we simply call those times as getting "fuzzy." It is possible we are hypoglycemic, I don't know how that is diagnosed. Our bodies just need to be as balanced as possible.

    • Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you.   Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO.  Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support.  They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.  
    • All the above posts are full of good advice. What I'd like to add is, if you have coeliac disease and continue to eat gluten, you run the risk of other autoimmune diseases in the future as well as osteoporosis, malnutrition and even cancer, so even if you had no symptoms at the beginning, and may also not have any symptoms if you eat gluten (not all coeliacs do), the damage is still being done to your gut and the rest of your body, so please be aware of this.
    • You could possibly try calling the places in Texas and Chicago to see if they can refer you somewhere that does accept your insurance. Oh good luck to you!
    • Hi Jennifer and welcome CyclingLady has given you some good advice above. You want certainty and that's entirely understandable. Go back to your doctors and explain that you need to know a little more and hopefully they will engage positively with you. If they don't, then do pursue a second opinion.  I just wanted to address your last paragraph quoted above. The problem with celiac, or in my case non celiac gluten sensitivity, is that it presents or doesn't present in so many different ways. It can do hidden damage which may take many years to become apparent. It can impact in ways which are incredibly difficult to recognise or isolate.  I am 'lucky' in that the way that gluten impacts on me is far worse than any mental or social isolation brought upon by the diet, so motivation is easy for me, even without the certainty of a celiac diagnosis, there really is no alternative, I don't think I'd last long on a gluten diet now. But I can well understand how difficult it may be to stay honest on the diet if you don't have any symptoms to deal with. The diet can be isolating, there does become a distance between you and 'normal' people. Who would want to deal with all that if they didn't have to? If you aren't satisfied with your doctors  responses and choose to go back onto gluten I suggest you find another doctor and go back into the diagnostic process and properly exclude celiac, including a scope. Otherwise you could be taking a big risk with yr long term health. You may find that this process supplies you with an answer as if your diagnosis was correct your response to the reintroduction of gluten may surprise you, or not of course! best of luck!     
    • There is currently not any enzymes you take that will get rid of gluten, they are working on a promising one to reduce symptoms but all others out there right now are a bust and will not help you much if it all with gluten exposure, Celiac is a auto immune disease, your reacting to the proteins of gluten and it is attacking them and your own body.  I do suggest a digestive enzyme if you have food issues in general to help break them down. But this will not fix gluten exposure, reduce damage from gluten, or make gluten eating safe by any means. These current ones on the market are FAD ones target at healthy people and helping them with general digesting of gluten proteins but will not help you if you have celiacs to eliminate gluten reaction symptoms.
