7 posts in this topic

Hi,

my mom is Gluten intolerant, and has been dealing with blood clots for the past 4 months, despite being on strong meds, she also noticed that when she accidently eats something "glutenized" the seem to get worse. could there be a relationship

Also I read that people with exercise-induced asthma are more likely to have Celiac? This was not published by a dr, and i couldnt find any other articles relating the two, so is this for real our just fluff?

Many thanks!

I can't answer about the blood clots but I can about the asthma. Myself and DH both have asthma. Mine required a rescue inhalor and a daily med. In 5 years gluten-free I have only felt the need for an inhalor once and that was when trimming bushes I was allergic to. I weaned off and eliminated all drugs under doctors supervision before my elimination diet started, including my asthma drug, I have never had to add any of them back.

Hi,

Your post leapt out at me, my mother had a problem with blood clots also (she also had asthma), I believe that she had coeliac disease. She had identified that she had a reaction to gluten and cut it out for the most part from her diet, looking back now knowing what I do about coeliac disease I dont believe she was ever strict enough on a gluten-free diet. She never got diagnosed though.

I think she was removing gluten for the most part to avoid the visible symptoms, but didnt have enough knowledge about the condition to cut it out completely. I think she treated it more like an allergy.

She made it through a very rough patch when a bloodclot went to her lung, and then they put her on wafarin to thin her blood. A couple of years later she developed diabetes and the strain was too much for her. I wish she had been diagnosed and had the proper support etc. our family doctor knows practically nothing about gluten intolerence [i have since discovered since wanting to be tested myself].

I most definitely had a non-stop form of asthma for a good 20 years.....but doctors could never seem to diagnose it. But I started using inhalers and later things like Avalide to control symptoms (not very well, I might add). Going gluten free pretty much eliminated the problem, and I haven't used any sort of inhaler for over a year. :D

I don't know about the Celiac connection but anyone with a family history of clotting should be blood tested for Factor V Leiden ( FVL), and APS (Hughes Syndrome ) as a matter of urgency. Many of these tests are new in the last 10 years or less - so its important to do your own research and be up to date - as your Dr may not be .....

APS is considered an autoimmune disease so in theory - could be linked to Celiac which is also autoimmune.

I am positive for Factor V Leiden after having a DVT and resulting pulmonary embolism 4 years ago. My brother and my mom are also positive for this genetic condition which causes your blood to clot more easily. It is present in 5% of the population. I have also been gluten free for the past year after having numerous gastric problems as have my mom and my brother. Just this summer my brother had a GIST tumor removed from his stomach and fortunately it was not cancerous which is very unusual for this type of tumor. I had the blood test last year for Celiac but was off of gluten for 2 weeks when this was done and it returned negative.

I definitely am beginning to suspect a link between the Factor V Leiden and gluten intolerance. I wonder if there are any studies being conducted on this.

I am on a mailing list for FVL - with a Hemo Dr on board - so will ask. I know that there is some link with FVL and APS. And that APS is an autoimmune clotting disorder. And that Celiac is an autoimmune condition. And that autoimmune conditions group together. Sorry to hear about your brother. He doesn't have low B12/ Pernicious Anaemia by any chance ? That is also autoimmune and leads to a greater risk of stomach cancers.

    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc.
