I had pyloric stenosis that was corrected surgically when I was a few weeks old. I've had Raynaud's for years and just recently was diagnosed with Celiac, I am about to get tested for Crohn's. Are these diseases related?

I don't know about the pyloric stenosis but the others are all auto immune conditions. One theory about pyloric stenosis is that it is an allergic reaction.

I was just told I have celiac sprue last month and on top of that I also have endometriosis, raynaulds and am now in the process of confirming a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and possible hypoparathyroidism. I think celiac's can act as a domino effect if it isn't found soon enough. I've read that some people's other problems can lessen or go away with the diet. I've definitely noticed some relief in other areas when I'm doing well with the diet (I'm still struggling a month into this with cross contamination and faulty label reading). But when it's right, everything goes away for me - the joint pain, belly bloat, the ice blocks for hands and feet, etc, etc. :)

Good luck! The good days make it worth everything.

I also had pyloric stenosis corrected as a newborn. I don't think it's related to celiac disease, but anyway here's two of us. I believe that my mom was celiac; if yours is as well, then maybe there's the connection. Maybe we should ask Will Ferrell; he has the most famous pyloromyotomy scar (those of us born in the '60s have a gigantic scar from the operation) going.

I also had pyloric stenosis corrected a 5 weeks old. I have Hashimoto's and now suspect gluten is an issue. I recently had a saliva test that showed slightly low IgA and elevated gliadin antibodies. I've read that a gluten free diet can help with thyroid antibodies. Anyone find this to be true?

wow this is interesting. I may have to do some googling...

My brother, born in 1960, had pyloric stenosis.... and now has diverticulitis.

I have had a rash (now resolving on the gluten-free diet) that has many of the characteristics of DH.

Another brother has a rash, also on his legs....his doctor is treating it like excema...

My niece has benefited from a gluten free diet, as my daughter has.

no diagnosed celiacs in the family (yet) but certainly seems like there are gluten connections.

I did do some googling, but I couldn't come up with any references that indicated a link or a causal relationship between pyloric stenosis or celiac or gluten intolerance.

However, I did find out that pyloric stenosis is genetic. So if it happens that you have family members that had PS, and family members with celiacs.... it probably just means your gene pool is doubly blessed :lol:

my little brother had quite the scar from his operation. My mother used to tell him he was special, like one of Dr. Seuss's Star Bellied Sneetches.

I found this:

Children between 9 and 24 months tend to present with bowel symptoms and growth problems shortly after first exposure to gluten-containing products, pyloric stenosis[4] sometimes being a factor. Older children may have more malabsorption-related problems and psychosocial problems, while adults generally have malabsorptive problems. Many adults with subtle disease only have fatigue or anaemia. [2]

I was diagnosed with Celiac's in April of 2010. I also was born with pyloric stenosis, which was surgically corrected when I was 8 weeks old. I have wondered since my recent diagnosis if there was any relation between celiac's and pyloric stenosis. Sounds like it could be possible!

Old topic, but I've just been trying to find if there was a link, was googling and this came up. ;)

Reading another thread about children got me thinking about my children.

My son had pyloric stenosis which was surgically treated when he was 5 weeks old. I tested positive on the celiac blood test, and am awaiting confirmation by biopsy, but my son has had a bloated looking belly since he was born, and I've noticed that he never wants lunch.

Since doing the gluten challenge, and noticeing how my stomach never seems empty, always full and bloated, well.....it made me wonder. He has weetbix for breakfast......

If there is a link at all, I wonder if it's being carried by someone with untreated celiac, or if it's when they are first introduced to any gluten containing products. ie if they had any formua, or if the breast milk contained gluten.....

    • There aren't any gluten free nut brand in my country. Are nuts with shells like peanuts,walnuts sold in stores without package gluten free? Do they add anything else to them? 
    • Supplementation with Natural Vitality Stress & Energy, will help a lot it is a sublingual B-vitamin pretty much. I use it with the Neurological support from the same company and Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium. These along with a diet in foods that help with mood like snacking on cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, etc. Takes the edge off of everything and I do not worry but just roll with life. Here are some helpful links https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ A set of microwave cookware from nordicware will make the transition and cooking some foods super simple and cheap, steam trays, rice cooker, grill plates, omelette makes etc, also great for trips. Butcher paper/Freezer paper can make a nice safe cook and eating surface and makes clean up a breeze. Crockpot meals with a crockpot liner makes really easy soups, risotto, stews, pot roast, etc and the liner can make cleanup super simple just pull it out and toss it.    Eggs dishes like omelettes using the microwave cooker, scrambled egg dishes, are super simple and one of my go to meals I also so simple stir fry meals a lot. Saute in order of harder and seasoning veggies and meats first and finish off with a sauce/deglazing mix 10-20min meal. I have posted recipes for meals in the recipes sections. MY flat bread recipe seems to bit hit recently being cheap easy and very versatile in how you can make it.
    • Hey everyone... newbie here. I have a few questions but first my history: Dx with Hashimoto's in 2003. Had SEVERE adverse reaction to T4 no idea why but then switched to T3. But T4 opened a can of worms. Immediately after starting T4 had digestive issues. Aften a few years tried gluten free. No help but stayed on gluten-free diet. 2013 gave in to blt cravings and had wheat sandwiches everyday for a week. Woke up one morning with muscles so swollen or inflammed couldn't  get out of bed. No more gluten. Also had blood in stool. 2014 finally dx with pancreas insuffiency. Digestion improved and blood stopped but at same time also dx with colitis (i strongly doubt this dx and don't  take colitis drugs). A year later added cheese back into my diet. Bleeding came back. No more dairy now, blood gone. Now i might have gastritis and sibo. Endoscopy planned for October. 23andMe testing also shows a single mutation for celiac. If i just stay Gluten-free Casein-free does it really matter is i get a dx for celiac? Celiac disease and gluten intolerance... same thing? Is blood in stool common with celiac disease? Is colitis often a wrong dx for celiac disease. Can a biopsy dx celiac when already Gluten-free Casein-free?  Which end of the small intestines used for biopsy? Meaning, when doc looks at my stomach can he do small intestine biopsy or do i need a colonoscopy instead?
    • My 7-year-old has been complaining of constant itchiness and a skin crawling sensation for the past five months, but has no external rash or symptoms.   It seems to get worse at night, although that may be because it's more difficult to distract herself at bedtime.   We've tried switching shampoos and detergents, tepid baking soda baths followed by gluten-free lotion, re-reading the labels on anything that comes in contact with her skin, having her re-tested for more food sensitivities, and even checking the house for mold and cleaning all the air ducts.   Nothing has helped. Her pediatrician referred us to an allergist who had us try several different histamine blockers, but not even Benadryl brings relief, so it doesn't appear to be a histamine issue.  Blood tests show that her kidneys, liver and thyroid are all functioning normally.   Right now I'm trying having her go nitrate-free since that isn't included in food sensitivity tests, but so far no improvement.   Now they want to refer her to a dermatologist, but the appointment is a month away and she is MISERABLE.  I have no idea how to help her.  
    • Wow! It sounds like you are going through a lot right now.  Most of our dinners at home are gluten free and my kids eat the food just fine. It does take a bit more planning and you have to make more things from scratch.  Our favorite dinners are tacos (serve on corn tortillas), red beans and rice, fajitas, grilled meat (BBQ chicken, fish, steaks, shrimp).  My crock pot is a life saver because I can leave it cooking al day and come home to a hot meal. Also, check out an instapot. I might make cooking a lot easier.
