I am wondering since my daughter is in the process of testing, if any of you have been diagnosed with Postural Orothostatic Tachycardia Syndrome? If so, did it get better with a gluten free diet? Thanks, Jennifer

I don't have POTS. But, I know that POTS can be from having faulty connective tissue. You might try looking up the Brighton Criteria to see if your daughter might have that.* If so, you might try asking others with POTS and bad collagen for advice. I'd try www.hypermobiity.org. There's a very helpful messageboard there!

*Keep in mind that several things may influence the testing results. For example, young children are generally flexible and therefore often aren't diagnosed until age . . .6 or 8 or so? Plus some variations in flexibility are from race, rather than defect, with Asians and then African Americans being most flexible of those studied. Women are more flexible than men, children more than adults. Still, this testing is more useful than not. And a good, informed rheumatologist should have a good idea of what's normal for one's age, race, and sex, though many aren't so informed on some connective tissue diagnoses and treaments.

Hi!

I have been just 2 months ago diagnosed with POTS. There are many reason for it. I didn't heard one about the hyper elasticity.

My cardiologist gave me a few pages from this site: http://www.dinet.org/pots_an_overview.htm . I checked everything online (symptoms, causes, etc.)

In my case I have also problem with autonomic dysfunction. I don't have just POTS. I have also postprandial hypotension - low blood pressure after food or water. It looks like problem with parasympathetic nervous system.

I have appointment with a new neurologist- specialist in New York Presbyterian Hospital in January because in my case, nobody knows what is causing my POTS. All common things had been ruled out. Doctors are puzzled. Pills that I tried had no effect, or I had very bad reaction to them. I hope that somebody will find the cause for my POTS, or some pill that will work. I hope.

How severe is yours daughter's POTS? Did she had a Tilt table test? Doctors can prescribe beta-blockers, if it's milder. She needs to drink a lot of water(or Gatorade with plenty of sodium) and eat salty foods (if I feel very bad, I will eat salty potato chips). Also colder weather can help. Our body will raise blood pressure in colder environment. How old is your daughter? I had just Tachycardia when I was 19 and then Beta-blockers helped me.

I'm on gluten and casein free diet for year and half, but my POTS got worse.

I should have been clearer. I am the one that has it, not my daughter. I am wondering since they are testing her for celiac, if it may be my problem too. I also have Hashimotos. Cause of POTS was never determined. Lyme was ruled out multiple times. In fact I think everything was ruled out except celiac. I never saw testing for that. I do take a beta blocker, and it helps. But it is a band aid. We are all going gluten free and believe it or not my daughter is already doing much better. It has only been 3 days, is that possible? Every now and then she complains about her stomach but it is nothing like before. She is actually playing by herself again and not as clingy. This would just be a miracle if it would help us all. I read somewhere that if the biopsy turns up neg, and the IgG is positive that it is gluten intolerance.

Funny thing is is that no one is complaining about this gluten free diet or what they can/can't have. Maybe it is too early, but I guess when you get to a certain point health wise, you embrace it.

Thanks, Jennifer

    • I'm pregnant and I was getting bad eczema on my shins. In trying to stay away from Free Steroid products in them, I tried foderma serum as well as other steroid eczema creams and foderma is the only one that works. Within three days my itchy, scabby, dry skin was smooth, soft and not itchy! I highly recommend.
    • I will just stick with christopherbean company, the fact the main sales rep I talk to has celiac in the family means a lot, she said they use it all the time. I tested some of the iffiest flavored version grounds for gluten all negative. NOT had any issues drinking all kinds of coffee from their company in the past few months. FACT the flavored ones actually taste like what they say and just need a bit of sweetener is making me a coffee addict again lol. Clearing a pot a day so far and looking forward to each day wondering what flavor I should do >.> today was banana foster coffee, its 7 am and i already am on my third cup. If your still in doubt just buy their beans and grind your self.  I am grateful for the guy that started this thread as he ended up motivating me to start my campaign to find a gluten-free flavored coffee, where I ended up emailing several companies, I still saved 2 of the replies from companies saying DO NOT drink our coffee if you have celiac. Sorta funny how that brought up the issue and proved some points about gluten in the coffee industry.
    • Ch88 yes im  glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off!  But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.
    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.
