Hematuria & Gluten Intolerance?

Hi,

Just diagnosed myself as wheat/gluten intolerant during the past 8 mos, so I am new to this whole thing. I am struggling sometimes to figure out what I can eat. Recently went for a physical as part of a DOT requirement (Dept of Transportation) for my CDL license. Found out I have trace amounts of blood in my urine and so far the medical community can't figure out why. Has anyone ever had a correlation between celiac disease/wheat intolerance to this symptom? My health has not changed otherwise so I can't figure out why it would appear now. Oh by the way, I am non-typical in that my symptoms of wheat/gluten is that of difficulty breathing -- no intestinal upset. Any info would help. Thanks.

I would not self diagnose. Sounds like something other than celiac. You could be doing more harm to yourself by not having more invasive testing done. Has your GP not recommended that? Just my opinion, but that's what I would do. Celiac is quite serious and even if you do have it and are"treating" it right now, you could have some other issues related to having the celiac for an unknown amount of time.

Some people do seem to have issues with the urinary tract that is related to Celiac. I am actually trialing gluten free, to see if I can clear up the same problem. I always have trace blood in my urine and abnormal cells. They tell me the cells are probably due to inflammation somewhere. Celiac can cause inflammation. I was thoroughly checked, to make sure that it was nothing else. Urologist has run all kinds of test, but can find no answers. I have been told that some people just have the microscopic blood, and as long as everything else is fine, not to worry about it. I will be curious to see if gluten free helps. I do know that my knees feel great, I can bend them completely. I was able to climb on a chair using my left leg to push off with the other day. My knees haven't been strong enough to do that in a very long time! So I apparently had inflammation in my knees, that I didn't even know I had. I just attributed it to age and weight! HTH

Hi,

I'm new here. I've had microscopic amount of blood in my urine all my life - couldn't figure it out. After years of testing and anoying UTIs etc, I was diagnosed with interstacial cystitis.

About 4 years ago I started having a huge amount of stomach issues, plus sinus problems. Also, at the time, I believe I was having a lot of pasta. I was always sick and tired.

About 2 years ago, I started getting these sinus "headaches" that a neuro diagnosed as migraines. But I'm not so sure they are.

My stomach is better except I always tend to be bloated.

My doc tested for celiac bec. my Vit D level was low and I had no energy. It came back negative.

But I'm wondering if I do have a gluten sensitivity.

I went to a chriropractor, which is a little out of my comfort zone and he suggested a food test - which I'm not sure why he wanted to do it. Anyway, the results said I have an issue with dairy, wheat, yeast, eggs.

(1) I don't know if this test is valid and (2) I'm wondering if I do have a gluten sensitivity.

I don't know where to start, I just want these sinus headaches to go away.

Has anyone had similar to above, particularly with sinus issues?

Also, my B12 was extremely high, 2000, and I have no odea why.

I'm scared. I'm 41 and feel like I'm 90.

Thanks.

Jill

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
