I am currently doing reserch on gut permibility and shizophrenia.I don't quite understand the celular process after penetration of the mucosa. I would appriciate any help in getting a clear picture of the transition from anti-gliden to abnormality of the t-cell and the brain connection. Please keep in mind that I am Psych trained and not medical.

Thanks for you time,

Christina

I hate to seem daft, but I think you would get more help by explaining what you need in other words.

Sorry, my bad. Im just having a hard time with the physiology of celiac disease after it has damaged the villi. I know that malabsorbtion is a problem but I don't understand what is being tranfered past the gut wall to the t-cells and what they have to do with schizophrenia. I am sorry if this isn't clear but I really dont understand it myself. Also, if I have misunderstood the whole villi breaking part please correct me.

Thanks,

Christina

I have read in the book Wheat Free Worry free: The Art of Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Living by Danna Korn that celiac and schizophrenia may be related. I believe that there is a section in the book on this topic.

I never thought about the two being connected but I can see how they could be, along with other disorders. Very interesting stuff.

Thanks for the info, its great and coincides with what I have been researching. I think I may need to confer with a physiologist because I still don't understand what happens on a cellular level. Is seems quite confusing.

Thanks again,

Christina

Hmmmm, very interesting. <_< My sister is a schizophrenic, and she also has trouble in her gut. She recently tested negative to celiac, but I still think she may be gluten intolerant. I'm not sure how accurate the test was either.

Give us an update when you find out more.

Have you looked into the studies that show calcifications of the brain in Celiac patients?

As a parallel to this may I suggest Paul Shattock, Paul Whiteley and Dawn Savery who have published the following titles about their work at the Autism Research Unit, School of Health Sciences, University of Sunderland, Sunderland, SR2 7EE, U.K.:

- Autism as a metabolic disorder: guidelines for gluten and casein free dietary intervention

- Autism as a metabolic disorder

- Guidelines for the implementation of a gluten and/or casein free diet with people with autism or associated spectrum disorders

I would be surprised if you didn't find the biochemistry mentioned in these of some interest.

Let us know how you get on - we'll try to follow your terminology!

Michael,

I am honestly NOT stalking you. It's just that it's great to have someone from the UK here who is obviously very well read! May I be cheeky enough to enquire what your profession is? (Obviously, don't reply to this if you don't wish to.)

I may have already mentioned this in another post to you, but my lad has ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome and dyspraxia, and in connection with this I would agree with you that the work taking place at the ARU is VERY interesting. My son tested +ve on their tests for 'gluten and casein insensitivity'.

No doubt will speak to you again:)

THE ANSWER FOR THE GUT PERMEABILITY IS GIVEN BY DOUG KAUFMANN IN THE FUNGUS LINK.

I HAVE'NT READ ANYWHERE THAT THERE WAS ABNORMALITY WITH T CELLS...T CELLS ARE PRESENT WHEN SOMETHING DANGEROUS IS PRESENT...

LET TALK ABOUT GLIADIN (MEMBER OF THE GLUTEN GROUP).

THE PEPTID THEORY SAYS THAT THE PROBLEM WITH GLUTEN IS THE SIZE OF THE PROTEIN. THE VERY LONG AMINO ACID CHAIN. RESEARCH ARE CONDUCT ON ENZYMES THAT COULD HELP BREAK THAT HEAVY AMINO ACID CHAIN.

THE PROBLEM WITH THE LONG CHAIN...THE LONGEST IT IS, THE MORE THERE IS GLUTAMIC ACID.

GLUTAMINE, MSG, GLUTAMIC ACID...NATURALY PRESENT IN FOOD. GRAINS CONTAINS ALOT OF IT, ALONG WITH TOMATOES, BEETS, AND OTHERS.

REFERS TO THE BOOK: EXCITOTOXINS, THE TASTE THAT KILLS.

IN THOSES 2 BOOKS, YOU HAVE ALL THE ANSWER YOU NEED...IN MY OPINION.

Thank you so much for all of your help and support. I am now completing my research and will post a link to my findings. Again, you have all been so helpful.

FYI I have a Mom, 3 sisters and a brother all with celiac disease (thats out of 12 kids and not all have been tested yet). After writing this research I am convinced testing for celiac disease should be universially accepted and preformed before age five.

Thanks,

Christina

I finished my research and would be happy to e-mail my findings and refrences. Below is a link to a very significant study by William Eaton for the British Medical Journal.

Thanks again for all the great ideas!

Didn't think you were.

Not working in any related field.

Over the decades my body has talked to me bit by bit about neurology and metabolism leading me to other sources of information. The spirit leading through the body. Making better sense of my life history (so far).

I get little pieces or batches of thoughts together & can express them all in one but the general skill of information organising comes very difficult to me, a kind of dyslexia I think. My having hyperfocussed on words since an early age and excellent spelling and handwriting masked that to "experts"!

Despite so much of my life being behind me fortunately I still have my life ahead of me in some tantalisingly unknown ways...

Michael

Paul,

The various causes and effects of diseases are like one of those gangs that put forward a different "suspect" every time one goes to pursue ones "enquiries" among them.

(probably not a good metaphor)

Michael,

When you mentioned "dyslexia" a little "bell" went off in my head. In preparing for

my thyroidectomy my endo doc gave me a book to read about endocrine diseases in which the author, a doctor from New York City, explained about a syndrome, group of diseases, which seem to occur in many individuals. It seems when one organ fails, such as the pancreas, diabetes occur. This in turn leads to another endocrine failure, such as thyroiditis or Grave's disease. His point was that these diseases are all related. Some other related diseases were Celiac, Dyslexia, and

prematurely gray hair?? I wish I could remember the title or the author, I lent it to

someone and never got it back. It seems to be true because my family has each

examples of each one of these.

    • Hi kelzz..........the only way you will find out if the increase is from gluten exposure is to have your doctor run the correct test.  I have said this a million times on this forum but I will say it again.....the DGP/IgA tests for reaction to gluten ingested. The tTg/IgA tests for intestinal damage and that can be elevated from other autoimmune diseases, or from ingested gluten.  So you are either being glutened in sneaky ways OR you may have another autoimmune issue going on. Sorry my answer is so late but I have been on vacation. I hope this information helps you!
    • Ok, so long story, but I'm hoping some knowledgeable folks can chime in and tell me if a) I'm not crazy for thinking this sounds a lot like celiac and not a lot like anything else and  are the tests being run the right ones? I had malabsorbtion symptoms my whole life, rashes on the inside of my elbows and knees, chronic constipation, chelisis, brittle cracking nails, my hair sheds a ton, irritation on the edges of my scalp, blistery rashes on my hands, low iron, low blood sugar, bloating, painful gas (like bring me to my knees type). I pretty much just accepted it as my normal, and when I went to get the skin issues checked out in my early 30s, I was just told it was eczema and sent away. The rashes on the insides of my elbows and knees went away when I was about 15 or so, but in my 20s I started seeing a blistery, itchy rash on my elbows occasionally. Fast forward to 2015, and I have a terrible outbreak of GI symptoms (always constipation with me, with the occasional horrible D experience sprinkled in) along with a pretty bad itchy rash on both elbows. I start researching and find that a lot of what I have experienced sounds like DH/celiac. By the time I get my referral in and appointment to the GI doc, I've decided to cut milk out of my diet. I thought back to when I had the last period of time where I had no GI symptoms, and it was when I was last deployed. The dairy in the chow hall was either expired or near it, so I lived on eggs, rice, and chicken, and hot sauce. ;p. Once I cut out milk, and I saw a pretty impressive relief of most of my symptoms. The chelisis is gone, my rash disappears, bloating is much better, gas pains are gone. I get tested for celiac- negative, lactose intolerance- negative, SIBO- positive. Two rounds of antibiotics 6 months apart and my SIBO (methane type) clears up. Basically they said I had IBS-C and my skin issues were likely unrelated. I'm pretty sure my issue with milk is casein-related, because my son has the same issues with casein, and I sure have GI issues when I drink it. (TMI... mucousy rabbit poo). So I figure most of my issues have cleared up, no active rashes, good right? Nope. Since then, I had a couple outbreaks on my elbows, but they went away fairly quickly, My scalp rash thing ebbed and flowed, and my hair still sheds a ridiculous amount. About a month ago, I had another rash outbreak on both elbows, a couple blisters on my hands... and it stayed. After a month of rash, I finally contacted my doc and said "look, this rash is active, please take a look." Just as if it sensed it, the rash started clearing, that same day. :-< By the time I saw her a week and a half later, it was gone, save for a couple scabs. So, good news is my doc disagreed with the GI doc and said it sounded auto-immune to her. I'm military, so I get what I get for referrals, labs, and doctors, but she's luckily very good and knowledgeable. She ran the following tests: Complement Panel: Awaiting results C-Reactive Protein: Awaiting results Celiac Disease Ab IgA Panel: Awaiting results Tissue Transglutaminase Ab IgA: Awaiting results
      Gliadin Ab IgA: Awaiting results Endomysial Ab IgA: Awaiting results Rheumatoid Factor: NEG Comprehensive Metabolic Panel W/eGFR: Normal with the exception of a higher than normal Urea Nitrogen/Creatinine (indicates poor kidney function or bleeding in intestines (ding ding ding) My GFR was normal, so kidneys are probably okay. ESR: 9 (normal is 0-20) Indicates inflammation  
    • I've tried 3 shampoos and a skin cream, sorry can't recall names! It can keep it under control but I want to know why it happened in the first place. I was already gluten-free, and never had it in my life beforehand. Just looking for a magic cure
    • There isn't a cure that I'm aware of. Mine is much, much better since I went gluten free but it's liable to recur, especially if I get run down. Nizoral is most effective shampoo but it contains wheat protein so take care!
    • Currently, a gluten-free diet is the only way to manage celiac disease. Can a celiac vaccine change that? One company thinks so. ImmusanT corporation has developed a therapeutic vaccine, Nexvax2, that is specifically designed to treat celiac disease. The vaccine is an adjuvant-free mix of three peptides that include immunodominant epitopes for gluten-specific CD4-positive T cells. The vaccine is designed to neutralize gluten-specific CD4-positive T cells to further antigenic stimulation. View the full article
