Reading about lymph system in GI tract, but we're not there yet with knowing.

Very concerning to see dd has had lymph node in each arm swollen and painful over the last 2-3 months.

She never told me, but she's had one swollen near her groin.

My worry is b/c of the occurrence of lymphoma with Celiac's.

Could it be something adrenal related? How would a doctor know?

Sorry for a similar post in one of my first posts in another thread. I wanted to separate this one symptom from the rest and see how familiar it is to anyone.

If lymph nodes stay swollen for more than a week, you should go to see a doctor. It could just be an infection. They can test for that. And if not an infection, they can do a needle biopsy to find out. Please do not let fear keep you from acting. You always want to catch things as early as possible. Likely it is nothing, but you need to find out.

A friend of mine just took her daughter to the doctor a few weeks ago because she had 3 swollen lymph nodes on her neck. They ran tons of blood work and everything came back fine. They scheduled a biopsy, but before that date came, two had gone away and the other was shrinking. Turns out to have been nothing. But they were going to do the right thing.

You need to talk to a doctor.

I agree, absolutely.

To justify a bit, I am dealing with an inadequate military health system that has failed me in this process for over 3 years- going on 4 with a diagnosis. We ran treating allergies here, mental health over at psychiatry, GI many times for no real outcome except for "wait and see", no one listened. I don't trust them. I'm not being overly whiny- they really have blown me off- her off, really.

Once the dx process is stable and we have a better idea of what we're looking at, hopefully the scope is enough (upper and lower), I am switching to Johns Hopkins Health, which is an option. It gets no better than that. If I switched my daughter now, the waiting game continues and I push this back further.

It's being brought up at the pre op on Wednesday this week.

I asked here because I've come to trust those who've had to go through it more than I do the incompetent doctors we've suffered through. Having a general idea when you walk in their door helps, knowing how things might be interconnected helps you do validate why you're asking them to investigate further. I've noticed I've needed to arm myself this way with them.

    • Hi Lucy Lou, I am very glad you were able to get your med compounded and figured out corn derivative compounds are causing you reactions. After my gluten challenge and the fall out that followed I determined I could not have corn derivatives microcrystalline cellulose, maltodextrin (corn), citric acid (corn derived) as well. My joints, gi, and then some react. I had to even remove White distilled vinegar derived from corn from my home as well. So even when something was gluten-free I often had to call to verify it was corn free , make my own, or go  without ex condiments, medicines, vitamins, etc.  I am glad you figured it out. Best wishes on healing.  
    • I had to elminate, carbs, and sugars also due to UC, but I haveen cooking for diabetics for years in my bakery. I do keto based breads, grain free baked goods, nut butters, etc. I have a few grain free low carb recipes in the cooking section like Keto low carb dinner rolls, flat bread, crackers, etc. My bakery also sales keto loaf breads that are a huge hit with my customers. Look at ketogenic/paleo diets. stews, meats, leafy greens creamy soups with nut milks etc. Crock pot and batch meals will be your new friend I imagine.
    • First, let me make this clear.  Your diet may have contributed to diabetes a bit, but the reality is you are either genetically predisposed or not.  That covers both Type 1 (TD1 — autoimmune) and Type 2 (TD2 — insulin resistance).   Has your doctor diagnosed you with TD1 or TD2?  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  It can be determined by measuring antibodies (e.g. GAD).  Like celiac disease, there are several antibody tests for TD1.  It can affect any age.   The body destroys beta cells that help produce insulin.  Insulin resistance (TD2)  is common as we age or eat a poor diet of simple carbohydrates (which is just about everyone in the US!) if you are predisposed.    It runs in families.  It can be treated by diet and if needed, medications and/or insulin.   I recall the same dismay.   I have TD2.  I have made dietary adjustments and have been able to ward off medications that could affect my gut.  You really can lose that sweet tooth!   Here is a link to Blood Sugar 101.  The author is NOT a doctor, but is good at investigating research.  It is a highly regarded website.  She sells a small book, but it contains exactly the same information.  I bought one for my Uncle who is not on the internet (imagine that!).  Learn about “eating to your meter”.  What affects one diabetic may not affect another in terms of elevating blood sugar.  Managing your blood sugar will help prevent all those diabetic complications.  Jenny’s Site also references some very well-respective books written my medical doctors who live with diabetes.  It is a good place to start.  Like this site, it helps me stick to my gluten-free and Lowere carb diet (you need to determine what works for you personally and I can not stress that enough). got to go......    
    •   Had to mention........this made me laugh out loud and how true it is! 
    • You do realize I am starting to drool all over my keyboard?    Your second sentence said it all.  It's been 12 years for me gluten-free so gluten free chewy is fine by me!
