Cesarean Article And Its Link To Celiac

8 posts in this topic

I just came across a really interesting article on cesareans may contribute to celiac disease...

I'd like to hear your thoughts on this and also whether trying to restore optimal levels of microbiome may help me not react as badly to gluten?

Looking back, I was born via cesarean. My mom doesn't appear to have celiac disease but I definitely do.

How would I go about being tested for this and what are your thoughts, I'm not overly familiar with this link but it makes sense and may give me insight as to what I can do to help aid my diet.

It sounds ridiculous to me! How can microbiomes pass thru to the baby thru the birth canal when mothers microbiomes are in her small intestine? Even if if were in her birth canal (which it couldn't as they are INTESTINAL enzymes) how would it get into baby's intestines? This article is for the trash IMHO.

My sister and I both have autoimmune diseases (Crohn's and Celiac, respectively) and we were both born via vaginal births. And I know lots of people born via c-section and none of them have any autoimmune diseases. I also call bs.

Maximoo, it's not crazy at all. In aback am birth, nothing down there is sterile (especially not after mom poops during pushing, which is totally normal), and gut colonization of newborns is closely correlated to method of delivery. They are also closely correlated to infant feeding (breast v. formula).

That said, I don't know of any whole way of "switching" your microbiome. I've heard that the GAPS diet might fall into this category, but I don't know anything about it. (Others here do, though, so definitely ask!)

In related news, it was recently discovered that it is quite likely that MS Iis partly triggered from a healthy microbiome interacting with a particular set of genes (and environmental trigger).

Wow -stupid auto correct!

That second sentence should be "in a vaginal birth..."

I think that there is something to it but as only a CONTRIBUTING factor. All my kids were born vaginally and my DS is dx Celiac. DD was tested but she was only 8 months old I believe and didn't have a ton of gluten exposure (but did through breast milk and some table foods). That said, she is gluten-free because it's easier and safer for the kids all to be on the same diet. Baby #3 is only 3 weeks old. I have no idea if/when/how I will introduce gluten to him.

Hmmmm . . . my son was born via C-section and he is fine. My daughter was VBAC and she is the one with Celiac.

Just thought I'd throw in my contradictory statistics.

    • These are all low in fermentable carbs, but limit amounts to see what is tolerated (for us, 2 tortillas, two biscuits, one sandwich round) and don't load up on lots of baked goods in a day  I try to limit it to one baked good per day   Tortilla/ flat bread:  http://comfybelly.com/2013/04/tortillas-and-a-book-giveaway/#.WScABoFOmEc Sandwich Rounds (good with peanut butter): http://comfybelly.com/2013/08/sandwich-rounds-using-almond-flour/#.WScAm4FOmEc Biscuit (these are amazing. Make them sweet and serve with strawberries and coconut cream, savory and make sausage sandwiches, etc): http://healthyindulgences.net/2008/08/easy-low-carb-gluten-free-biscuits/
    • Thank you so much for sharing... we struggle with my daughters diet but it has only been 10 months so we are still learning the ropes. 
    • Also want to say that a lot of gluten free  recipes are not good for SIBO- too many starches. Also large quantities of almond flour or coconut flour have too much fermentable fibers so be careful with Paleo/SCD recipes too.  It's a bit of a balancing act in what you make and how much is eaten (that's why I like fast Tract- you can qualify things and it works).
    • My daughter is now 11 and we are finally on top of her SIBO (since she was 8).  Diet is super important. I know it's hard with kids, but a diet low in fermentable carbs is key. Especially when SIBO appears to be chronic.  I suggest looking into the Fast Tract Diet. There is a book and an app. Using glycemic index, fiber, and total carbs, the diet tells you the fermentation potential of different foods. There is a point system. The goal is to keep your fermentation potential points between 20-30 per day when you are experiencing SIBO symptoms, and then slowly increase to 40 points for the long term maintenance.  It is important to note that Fast Tract is not strictly gluten free. So you have to choose that yourself.  This system has worked very well for my daughter.  She also takes Atrantil daily and her GI at U of C suggested once a month going on a preventative herbal antibiotic.  Honestly, this is the best she has felt in years. Avoiding gluten is key...this is the other part of the equation. Incidentally, since gluten affects her nervous system, I think it has affected her motility, hence the SIBO.  So, diet is important and kids are difficult. Avoiding most grains is important since they are super high in fermentable carbs. BUT, there are some grains that are lower in fermentable carbs that help:  Jasmine Rice (cook in water like pasta and drain. Do not use left over because cooling causes resistant starches to form and that is aweful for SIBO).  Also mashed Red Potatoes (soak in salt water for 30 minutes to get most starch out, then rinse well, boil, drain, mash.  Again don't cool and reheat because of resistant starch). I have a terrific biscuit recipe and tortilla/flat bread recipe that I can post too.
