Possible Other Reason For Gluten Intolerance

I am posting this because I have seen many where they have been gluten free for a long time, yet have seen little to no recovery. I have first hand experience with this.

I became severely gluten intolerant. I had all the symptoms. My Para thyroid went crazy, constipated, fatigue, skin, tooth loss, hair loss, blurred vision, sleeplessness, and the list goes on. At the same time my wife & children even had symptoms. All varying in severity. I went gluten-free. I could go to the bathroom again, could function a little, and so on. Now the blood tests and endoscopy came up negative. We all know that this is not a 100% anyway. I reglutenated several times, sometimes on a blind, and went down hill.

The rest of my family were also not well. I took the rest of my family off gluten and they too were a little better. It turned out we had a serious mold problem. Mold victims become gluten intolerant. The toxins produced by mold cause our immune system to go wild. Your good flora gets depleted by fungi colonization not to mention that certain hormones and cytokines cause digestion problems. I will discuss in more detail all aspects of mold toxicity (mycotoxicosis) in the future.

If exposed to the levels we were you now become toxically injured. This means now your cell defenses are weakened and the ability to fight toxins, whether chemical or made by nature, are severely compromised. This in turn causes a hypersensitivity to chemicals. Fragrances, inks, gases, or many other elements make the toxically injured sick. All the symptoms that Celiacs have, mirror exactly that of the toxically injured. Keep in mind that severe exposure to chemicals causes the same. It does not need to be mold to cause toxic injury.

Diabetes, seizures, memory loss, hair loss, and all the rest have been scientifically linked to toxins. Even cancer is.

Please keep this in mind, if you are not recovering. Less then 2% of doctors are even trained with this. I have researched this in depth, and have successfully net worked with researchers and doctors to confirm this. If you ever heard of Sick Building Syndrome, this is one of the most common results.

If, people wish, I will post more in depth information in the future.

Ps: Please note the email on my account is not working temporarily. Trying to get it changed.

Can mold cause positive blood and biopsies? If so is it treatable? I didn't get ill till we moved into our 100 year old house! Ended up with a nasty fungal respiratory infection (treated with anti fungal). This fungus should never be found in the lungs. They had me pegged with COPD and Intersestial lung disease. All reversed with treatment. Very interesting post. Please keep us informed with any new developments. I believe there is also more to this story.

I am very interested in mold as a possibility for my getting sick. We moved to our new house in 2006 and I have had a problem with mold in my washer and shower. We live in the country now so I guess mold is just more of a problem here. It is very hard to stay on top of it in the spring and fall. Anyway I always had constipation as a child and some stomach issues but not until we moved did I have any intestinal issues. I also started getting sick more often. Since we moved out here I have had pneumonia, thrush, parasites, a mycoplasma infection, strep, H. Pylori, blurry vision (my eye doctor says my eyes and retina are fine) fatigue that is severe at times, now Im having loose stools constantly and now a positive Celiac biopsy. My GI told me to stay away from milk as well as wheat and gluten. My regular doctor is checking a blood test for auto immune disease because I got livedo reticularis and raynauds. He said Celiac people often have RA, Lupus, Scleroderma and other AI disease.

I wonder if an allergy to mold can cause a false postive blood or biopsy test for Celiac. I think I'll go to an allergist and just get tested for everything. Then if I am allergic to mold I dont know how I can get rid of it so it dosnt keep coming back in my house.

I was diagnosed with Celiac in 2009.  I have been fighting with Mold issues on and off since 2007.  I would love more information, as my doctor is telling me I am highly allergic to Mold and I can't seem to get better. I need help!

Do you have any links to sources or data on a gluten-mold connection? I'd be interested to learn more.

    • I bought Spicely Organics Chili powder from Whole Foods in Bellevue, WA.  I got very sick after eating it, so I tested it with three separate gluten tests.  They all came up positive for >10ppm, which is what their "certification" says they test below.   I just wanted to warn everyone away from them.  They clearly have quality control problems and are not safe for celiacs.
    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
