Lipid Storage And Celiac

5 posts in this topic

:( Is it possible to have Lysosomal (Lipid) Storage Disorders along with Celiac ? Lipid storage disorders are usually deadly and kill in childhood or infancy,but I wonder if a person can have a less severe form of it along with Celiac ? It's when fats build up in the wrong places like organs and the brain. One is called Gauchers Disease another is called Niemann-Pick Disease. A few days ago I began to feel I had fat in my ACHING BRAIN AND MY LIVER and I wondered if it's a possiblity. I also felt this in December when I inquired about it from a referral place.These conditions usually affect Eastern European Jews,and some populations in Nova Scotia,and Spanish Puerto Rico that's what I read online-but they can affect anyone it it said.

Well, the brain is supposed to be mostly water, but of the solid portion, apparently a fair amount is fat. The liver is important in the digestion of fats though. As I recall, it has something to do with the fact that the liver produces bile acids, which aid in the digestive process.

I'm curious though, how it is that you "feel" this build-up of fats? It might help if you can describe how your brain and body feel. There may very well be some food (or substance within) that is causing you the trouble.

Well,the dictionary describes Celiac Disease as a fat malabsorption disease,so maybe the fat piles up in celiac brain or something,maybe its possible. I'll look into it and update ya.

Fat malabsorption is when the body passes fat out of the system without it being processed. It is not that the fat goes to areas where it shouldn't. I would suggest that you consult with a neurologist if you think you may be having some kind of brain related issues. Also simple blood tests can be done to check for a 'fatty' liver or liver damage. There is something we call brain fog when glutened that can make it hard to think, is this the 'fatty brain' feeling you are referring to? If so it is a part of celiac disease and will go away after the gluten antibodies are out of your system.

I also noted in your signature that you mentioned you need to get the TTG. Do be aware that you need to be on a full gluten diet for at least a couple months before the test is done. False negatives are also not uncommon.

Lipid storage diseases are not associated with celiac disease, and if you had a true lipid storage disease it would have been apparent a long time ago. Even if it were asymptomatic for some outstanding reason, if would have been picked up by a CBC. If you feel like there is something going on in your body, then please find a doctor who will run some tests for you. I would make sure they include a CBC and a liver function panel.

    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
    • Hey guys!  I have been suffering from NCGS for almost a year, and have recently been diagnosed with IBS.  Although I was finally getting used to the gluten free routine, this has been really hard to get used to.  I'm currently having a major flare, so I'm off pretty much all fodmaps (although mainly beans, dairy, nuts, and gluten). Additionally, my stomach can't handle more than a 1/2 cup portion per meal, and even then, I'll occasionally have pain after eating.  Does anybody have simple, fast meals that they could share? As if this isn't restrictive enough, I'm also allergic to eggs, so I'm pretty much living off smoothies, rice, and allergy free chicken sandwiches.  I know this is pretty restrictive, but I thought that if anybody could help, it would be you guys.  Thanks!  Claire 
    • Great advice everyone! So the envirokids gorillla munch by natures path is safe?. As for cinnamon Chex is that ok too? 
    • Alright, so I'm 3 months into being gluten free, And in terms of how I feel, the "best fit" line on the graph would be a very slow incline, which is good, but day to day, I would mark as all over the place. I don't understand. I pretty much do the same things every day, and eat the same things every day at around the same times, even in the same order. I cook all my own food and am super careful about CC. I even have my own pans, cutting boards, even my own sponge for washing my own aforementioned kitchen supplies. What I eat is very limited. I don't even do dairy, grains, or added sugar. (for now) Yesterday I actually felt okay. The brain fog was fairly thin, I felt more based in reality, rather than like I was in the matrix, on drugs, or in a dream. Today I'm back in the matrix again. I can't think, I have anxiety, I'm overly emotional, short fused, angry, and scared of my own shadow. This up and down for no apparent reason stuff seems to be the norm for me. Is this unheard of or somewhat common? It seems like how I feel is completely out of my control, and the disease just does whatever it wants. I know 3 months isn't that long in the usual recovery time frame, but I want to get off this ride. I just need to know if it's normal to be so up and down day to day during the recovery, or if I should give in to my assumed unfounded panic attacks and be worried. As a side note, I'd much rather have the typical gastro issues usually associated with celiac. Blowing chunks and crapping my pants constantly would be way easier for me to deal with than all the neurological problems mine manifested as. Ugh.
