Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I agree 100% but in that disclaimer they said in a restaurant setting. They sell canned chili in the local stores so I would think that I should be okay. I've tried to make my own chili but the problem is that I suck. I'm a horrible cook. Gordon Ramsey would probably slap me in the face. Cincinnati style chili is different from most chili out there too. There is chocolate, cinnamon, and some other ingredients that you won't find in other chili recipes out there. It's different and if you screw it up, not good. Give it a try. Like I said, if you make it right, the best you've ever had.  
    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc
