Hello,

After discovering celiac with an upper endoscopy (it was a silent disease for me), at the same time they discovered antral gastritis and gastroparesis. The gastroparesis continues to worsen even though I've been gluten free since August. Gastritis remains the same. I now have a positive ANA (1:320), so there might be a connective tissue disease we're looking for, maybe sjogren's. But I have two questions:

1. Can celiac (even though gluten free for nearly 8 months) cause a positive ANA of 1:320, speckled?

2. Does celiac cause gastroparesis, and if so would it worsen after being gluten free for nearly 8 months?

Anyone with similar experience?

Maybe I got my answer by no one replying. Maybe celiac and gastroparesis aren't really connected. And maybe celiac and a positive ANA aren't connected either. It seems we're looking at a connective tissue disease.

Hi there

I think quite a few suffered from it before going gluten free. How strict is your diet - any chance of small amounts of gluten getting in? Have you had follow up tests to check blood antibodies or intestine to see if you are healing?

I was " diagnosed" with non ulcerative gastoparesis while trying to figure out what was wrong with me. Turns out I was gluten intolerant instead!

Hope you figure out what the problem is. You do know there is often greater chance of developing other auto-immune diseases like sjorens, when you have celiac? Bu if you are gluten-free it shouldn't be such a problem still?

Chooper: When I hwas dignosed with Celiac in 2005 [by an upper GI, blood test neg.] My Dr. had me do the test for gastroparesis[stomach empting]. Showed I had it.

So no more salds. Woody

My daughter was diagnosed with it at about the same time as she was diagnosed with celiac disease. Doc thought it was related. He put her on a med for a couple of months to help motility until she had a chance to heal. She has intermittent issues...when glutened and strangely enough about once a month around the same time which I think may be hormonal.

I definitely have gastroparesis, and that diagnosis came a year after being strictly gluten-free. About 4 months later I discovered I had several food allergies, and I thought that was the cause of the gastroparesis. It wasn't. If I'm gluten- and allergy-free and do my best to eat what I need for my gastroparesis, I'm mostly okay. Still have good days and bad days, and it's a delicate balance, but I do feel better.

Hi Marz,

I took the celiac diagnosis very seriously and I consider myself very strict, which I why I'm puzzled why the GP is worsening. And maybe it's another AI underlying it. Thank you for your reply.

Thank you all for your replies. If it turns out I don't have another AI disease causing it, I'll take comfort in knowing there are others with celiac and GP! Thank you!

How strict are you? Do you eat "gluten free" packaged food, or do you prepare everything for yourself? Have you ever tested your food?

Sorry, just saw your question! I prepare most everything from scratch using gluten-free flours, like muffins and bread. There are a few gluten-free prepackaged items I buy, like Riceworks crackers and a couple other snacks. I avoid dairy except an occasional indulgence in a hard cheese. How do you 'test' your food?

I just got the diagnosis this week of limited scleroderma and hoshimotos, so maybe that's contributing to my tummy problems. I guess only time will tell!

Hi,

I got diagnosed with Celiac first and when I only improved halfway, I got tested and diagnosed with gastroparesis, the medicine works well, but it has its own diet, no greasy foods or strawberry seeds, many things, I am two different diets for Celiac and GP. GP diet is important too. I take Eyrthmycin Tabs as well for GP.

Welcome Dawn!  Since celiac disease interferes with the ability to absorb vitamins, it can cause nerve problems.  It's a good idea to be tested for vitamins levels at the beginning of the gluten-free diet, so we know if we are lacking any.  Some people are low in B vitamins, and that can cause nerve issues.  Which could cause gastroparesis.  So might be worth looking at.

I have gastroparisis, or go through phases of it [have had the testing for it.]  I think its related to both celiac and my diabetes.

    • Have you ruled out the common Keratosis Pilaris (KP) also know as chicken skin?   https://www.aad.org/public/diseases/bumps-and-growths/keratosis-pilaris
    • Squirmingitch brought up the macaroon idea, I find Zsweet, and Swerve Sugar Free sweeteners do not throw me out of keto and I use them to make my "treats" You might sub it in these if your like that idea. I personally just use coconut and almond meal in my baked goods with high fat nuts like walnuts and pecans (Walnuts and pecans have so much oil in them you can butter then in a blender or food processes into a pour able sauce that can be used as a dressing or mixed with eggs and coconut flour into a dough)

      Also brought up batch beans....bad idea for keto, but to integrate a keto version, try cooking a roast in a crock pot, or a whole bunch of chicken breast. You can eat on it for a week just serve it over greens. Or Miracle Rice (zero carb rice) Batch cooking will become a life saver. (works with some foods) and meal preps give you time to just grab a pre fixed meal out of the fridge and go if you need to do something later in the day. First year I was gluten free I did this daily for myself before meat became a issue (I look forward to doing it again).
        CB brings up the issue of selenium and melotonin. YES this is a huge thing and completely evaded my thoughts. I consume massive amounts of seeds, like pumpkin, sancha inchi, hemp all high in these in addition to flax and chia. I tend to rotate my seeds to prevent intolerance issues and only the roasted ones. Look up GERBS allergen friendly foods for pumpkin, hemp, flax, and chia.  I suggest the ground flax under meals as the seeds I notice have issues, I personally always have to cook my chia, and flax seeds into egg dishes or I can not eat them. If you blend them in with the eggs  1-2tbsp seed meal to 1 1/2 cups eggs -1/2 cup almond milk 2tbsp coconut flour and some almond butter and stevia to taste let it set up 5-10mins then blend again you have a batter for pancakes/waffles/doughnuts/breading batter. >.> something like this I whim it as a chef.

      I was thinking of another think I like to snack on. Rythem Super foods roasted kale and the kale chips in moderation. I also crush the kale chips up and sprinkle over eggs as a condiment, Adds plenty of vitamins and the ranch flavor for this is amazing.




       
    • No, not really. I had done my homework, so I reduced all grains substancially to give my guts a chance to heal. I increased all vegetables substancially and am basically going high fat, low carb.  That is why I had a few hicups along the way, my diet was too high in FODMAPs (nuts, fruit, avocados) but I made the necessary adjustments.  I think my hairloss is finally slowing down, but my skin is getting worse, pimply on chest and neck.
    • You might want to see about getting the blood test done again and getting a full celiac panel. You have to be consuming gluten daily for 12 weeks before the test. At least half a slice of bread a day. And keep eating gluten til you get the endoscope. The endoscope with biopsy is the golden standard as some people do not show up on the blood test.

      You mentioned itchiness and redness, look up DH and tell me if it looks like. If you have DH then you HAVE celiac. They test it by taking a skin biopsy from a clear spot next to one of the lesions and testing it.

      I have seen some others with this disease distend where they look pregnant when they get glutened. I have some distention but never that bad, just a obvious bump that pressing out.
