Gastroparesis Versus Hashimoto's And Celiac

2 posts in this topic

I thought it might be helpful to share with others how after I went gluten free 1 1/2 years ago, my 'stomach' symptoms worsened. I felt full so quickly, would get painful attacks that would lead to vomiting, and I couldn't handle foods with much fat nor fibrous foods. 1 year ago I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. 10 months ago I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's, as well as having a positive blood test for Limited Scleroderma. Over the last 10 months the scleroderma doctor has decided that I had a false positive for it. In talking with my new GI specialist, he told me that Hashimoto's can cause gastroparesis. He also said that they are finding that celiac can affect the stomach. So in my case, the culprit to my gastroparesis could be either or both.

I have a personal theory as well. I think I tested positive for scleroderma because I believe I was developing it. I've read that untreated celiac can lead to scleroderma. I had most all of the symptoms for scleroderma except skin involvement. After alot of deducing, the scleroderma doctor and the GI specialist said we could blame most of my symptoms on either Hashimoto's or celiac. The only symptom that no one had much of an explanation for was telangiectasia on my face, hands, upper body, and splinter hemorrhages on my nails. I haven't had splinter hemorrhages in a few months, and I haven't gotten any new telangiectasia. Therefore, I have to think that going gluten free and getting my thyroid managed has helped me in many ways unknown.

My advice to anyone with celiac who cheats is to please realize that it is of GRAVE danger to their health.

Well wishes,

Chopper

I also had impaired digestion after eating gluten free and even after being dx'd w/ 6 other food allergies and abstaining from those allergens. Before I was dx'd w/ Hashimoto's I felt overly full after eating very little and had chronic constipation no matter what else I ate, drank or did. After my Hashi's dx I took 16 months to understand which and how much thyroid supplements I needed to eliminate my hypothyroid symptoms. I also took a stomach acid production test which showed I had low stomach acid production. Even before thyroid supplements, digestive supplements helped me digest more rapidly so that I didn't feel overly full for hours after eating very little. Through my experience I learned that celiac, other food allergies, hypothyroidism and low stomach acid can negatively effect digestion. I'm doing better than ever after almost 8 years since my celiac disease dx.

    • I do not have DH, but if I have ever had it I would not remember. From what i've read I'm in the beginning demographic of when DH would appear (Which is apparently 20-40; I'm 20) but from what I can tell I don't have anything other than hyperpigmentation on my legs and a few bumps and similar things on my legs. Never had DH. My aunt has a weird rash that doesn't go away and her doctor doesn't know what it is but I wouldn't know unless I saw it again. I have 2 family members with conditions related to celiac. My mother, who is schizophrenic, and my aunt who developed MS in her 50's and has had it for 20 years, which I hear is very rare. My mother's side of the family also has a host of issues including thyroid related and etc, but the general consensus was that these things were part of aging and nothing else. I myself have had things like post-nasal drip and other minor symptoms for years because I just assumed they were normal. There have also been a couple of instances where I ate something like a PB&J in my childhood and threw it back up for no reason. I'm known to be a picky eater, and I've always avoided certain foods and condiments that make me gag like ketchup. I'm probably just going on, but I never really felt too normal, but I just kinda figured everyone was like that.
    • If the citrate version bothers you in small amounts as low as 1/2tsp then you need to change to Magnesium Glycinate like Doctors best. Some people do not react well to the citrate. NOTE Citrate version of magnesium is used as a laxative in higher doses and sold in stores that way mixed up in bottles.    Some of us just react that way to it, I use both myself on rotation, and actually use the citrate version sometimes to help move along gut when it needs that extra boost. As raven suggested eating more in foods is also a options. But I Found NO amount of food consumption could boost my levels where I needed them not even with stuff like pea protein and pumpkin seed protein. Also on the glycinate version try halving the dose starting off, perhaps drinking it with less juice or liquid. Magnesium makes your body retain water naturally so can give a bit of a heart burn sensation. This is normal, mine normally passes within a hour to two, I also drink it warm to help it start going through my gut faster and promote it hurry on along.    You might want to play with when and how to take it, perhaps it might work better with a food? >.> I have used glycinate as a food additive in homemade dips, and ice cream as it has a doughish flavor when mixed into something sweet.
    • Can you give her some magnesium rich foods instead of the supplement?  Foods are always the best way to get nutrients. Here is a link to a list http://www.healthbeckon.com/magnesium-rich-foods/
    • Thanks for pointing the date out .
    • Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?
