RA and Sjogrens. Gluten and soy free has almost eliminated the Sjogrens.

Hi! I know this question was posted several months ago, but I'm new here & just saw it.

I also have another autoimmune disease - one I didn't see listed among the other replies. I have Guillian-Barre. That's a terribly painfull & crippling autoimmune disease. I was in a wheelchair for several years because of that. After my celiac diagnosis & my new gluten free lifestyle, my GB has gotten much better. I'm even walking again! :)

Additionally, my "mystery anemia" has healed, & I haven't had a blood transfusion in nearly a year.

My biggest problem now is accidental gluten ingestion.

Although I read all ingredient labels, (as we all know) gluten hides under many false names.

Other times, I was accidentally "glutenised" by cross-contamination. Hence, I only eat food from my own kitchen now. Restaraunts are horrible cross-contaminators, as are the kitchens of friends & relatives - even when they try to be careful, & think they've decontaminated surfaces, they really don't know how to do that correctly.

I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis too. Had it for years - never need thyroid replacement though until I hit my thirties. Even to this day, I take a moderate dose. Always had constipation issues as a child and teenager - but I do not think when I was that young that people even attributed it to anything but not eating enough ruffage or vegetables. :(

Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren's Syndrome, high Lupus indicators, Reynaud's in addition to Celiac. All the other have responded positively to strict gluten free.

    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further. 
    • Also, have you been tested for H. Pylori infection?  I think I have seen that many ulcers can be attributed to that. It is also diagnosed with a breath test.  Hang in there. Many people have been in your shoes.  I wish it were easier.  
    • Another thing to investigate is SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth). It can cause all of these symptoms. There is a breath test to check for it which any GI doctor should know about, although you have a better chance of knowledge at a teaching hospital.  There's a lot of new research in this area. Here is more information: http://www.siboinfo.com/overview.html The current thought is that many IBS cases are actually SIBO. The treatment requires antibiotics (standard or herbal, both work) and dietary adjustments to reduce fermentable carbs so as not to feed the bacteria.  If it is very advanced, it can take multiple courses of treatment and for some people it seems to be chronic. There is always an underlying cause. Food sensitivities and malfunctioning migrating motor complex are the two big ones. Also structural problems with the intestines that slow motility is another.  There is a high prevelance of SIBO in gluten intolerance. My theory is that it is the neuro toxicity of gluten in susceptible individuals that slows gut transit and sets up a perfect condition for bacterial overgrowth.  But I'm not a doctor  I just have a daughter with chronic SIBO and gluten intolerance that manifests itself in neurological symptoms.   You might want to look into it.  The above website is a treasure trove of information. 
    • 1. My thyroid was tested and is in the normal range.    2. I'm not taking any medication so nothing to interfere with test results.  3.  My endoscopy showed multiple ulcers and that's what the GI chalked up to my very rare ibuprofen use. I use ibuprofen maybe once a month if that.  4.  I'll check into anything to figure out what's wrong     I got my Celiac test back today. It showed no evidence of Celiac disease. So I'm back at the drawing board. I did another stool test today also.
