I get really snippy when given gluten, then I feel bad for about a day afterwords because I snipped at a person who was innocent. That is on top of constipation and bloating.

Hello every one. Gluten and casein intolerance have ruined so many lives. My dad used to beat my mom... Couldn't help it. Ate food, got angry. I have forgiven him for it . My dad was diagnosed as schizophrenic...nope.. Gluten/casein intolerant. My brother diagnosed as bipolar......nope... Gluten/casein intolerant.. My sister... Angry.. Yells all the time... Gluten and casein intolerant... Me.... Anxiety/ depression.... Gluten/casein intolerant.

I had myself and my brother tested IgG from mymedlab.... My celiac test from blood was negative... But my IgG testing..wheat casien gluten and many more...

Please do no just go off of the first test...

Please go to the celiac Chicago research. 200 symptoms are related food intolerances.

Look up "brain allergies" if you have been diagnosed with any type of mental illness. Also look up functional medicine doctors... These doctors know all about gluten and food allergies..

Also, I found a a veterinarian that had mental issues and was gluten affected ... Www.dogtorj.com. So much great information..

I don't think a Veterinarian is a good source for human food intolerance issues.  Also, IMHO, I would not trust a medical diagnosis from a mail away lab, too many variables and you don't specifically state what all you tested for and what was negative or positive.  Allergies are different from Intolerances and so on.  Some psychiatric issues have nothing to do with food.  You may still want to pursue mental health care. 

 

Good luck to you.

FYI. The veterinarian is gluten intolerant like you and I. His site is full of great informations for humans and animals. He has been gluten free since 2000. So he has 13 more years of experience in dealing with this. :). Tere

Well, I am a Celiac, not gluten intolerant and I have over 25 years of "experience" regarding food issues and other AI Diseases. 

 

I am glad you are benefiting from the gluten-free diet.

I  am not aware of any evidence that states we celiacs cannot eat the flesh and fat of animals who eat grains and soy--as this veterinarian claims.

 

I read this in one of this articles:

 

He questions:  " How hard is it to believe that the flesh-  and fat - of animals consuming gluten, soy and corn contain enough lectins to do us harm?"

 

Answer: It's hard to believe.

This thread is very interesting. Like so many coeliacs I thought my bad temper/anger was just part of my personality but realise that I have not always been like this at all and it is my celiac disease and other food intolerances that are playing a part. These intolerances make me very tired and very "down" and if anyone asks/tells me to do something I really can't be bothered doing then they get a mouthful.

 

I also now realise that although my celiac disease antibody level is down to "normal", this is not the full story and there is more to celiac disease than is commonly realised. Since going on the gluten-free diet I have become intolerant to all dairy, oats, eggs, soya, grapes, pears, ginger....never ending. My body appears to be a mass of inflammation - costant SI pain, sore arms which leads to frequent headaches and migraines.

 

But it is the depressive symptoms that I truly detest and the anger/short temper that comes with it. Now seeing a specialist who hopefully will guide me through a healing diet.

I am starting to think I have a gluten intolerance.  I have a rash on arms, chest, and back and now this anger thing.  Google searches bring me here.  Help.  Where do I start?  Aside from stopping gluten do I need labs run?  Had gallbladder out in June and really thought it would help the Gastro issues.

Here are the tests: 
 
-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG
-Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG
-EMA IgA 
-total serum IgA and IgG (control test)
-AGA IGA and AGA IgG - older and less reliable tests largely replace by the DGP tests
-endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken
 
You ou have to be consuming gluten daily for these tests to be accurrate (8 to 12 weeks).

i would suggest reading the DH (rash) section of the forum as there is a very specific way to biopsy the rash and it seems most Derms mess up.  

 

Welcome to the forum and let us know how it goes!

Consume gluten for accurrate testing.

Hi. Just wanted to say how much I love this site.  I used to think I was going crazy with the anxiety and irritability. Since going gluten free I have felt so much better although it does come back after I have been glutened. So good to know this is normal and it's not just me.

This past year- I've had a lot of anger/irritability issues. I'm so relieved at how stable my moods are since going gluten free.

Sorry you have these symptoms . I have been gluten free for 9 years and I have a ridiculous amount of anger and depression it really sucks.

Thanks for sharing. Seems like so many people say "I cut out gluten and I feel so much better" , as if that's the cure all. I have celiac and a list of other medical conditions I battle with every day. I have cut out gluten and boy I'm angry, anxious, depressed, and some more ish. I definitely believe many of the conditions I have are related. Gluten lights a fire that spreads through my system from head to tow. I am fighting for my own health and my desire to enjoy living again every day! One foot in front of the other. All I know is laughter is my go to medicine. It's free, I don't need a prescription, I don't have to remember to refill or pick it up, and it's always with me.

Welcome to the forum! 🙂

You may not get a response from the original poster as it was 5 years ago. But I hope you find this site as helpful as I have. 

All the best...

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
