Link Between Celiac Mom (On Gluten) And Under-Formed Palate?

6 posts in this topic

Kind of a long shot but I was wondering if anyone knew of a link between a mom who's celiac and getting gluten (undiagnosed in my case) and giving birth to a child without a fully formed palate? My son is 4 and doesn't have a cleft palate but after two years of speech therapy a new therapist just pointed out to me that his soft palate doesn't close fully, making his voice very nasal and unclear. She thinks he'll need surgery. I was just wondering if that's a fluke or maybe it's related to malnutrition in utero?

Hi, I am a celiac, mother, and pediatrician. I try my best to read all of the newest research concerning problems related to celiac disease while pregnant, breastfeeding, etc. and I have not come across any info linking gluten exposure in utero to palatal formation or function in a baby/child. I am not trying to say that the 2 things are not related, just that there is currently not any research that has investigated this. Hope this helps!

Thanks, Jebby. While I have you, maybe, can any of the antibodies related to celiac pass from mother to child through BF? I know gluten itself can't, at least according to my doctor, but if Mom has celiac and baby has celiac and baby gets the atnibodies through the breast milk, could it cause malabsorption?

I do recall reading an article several years ago linking this condition to celiac. It interested me because my niece was born with this problem....and now she suspects she has celiac disease. She refused to get tested and simply decided to follow a gluten-free diet. You might do a keyword search on celiac and palate to see if you can find the article.

Hi Meg,

Here is a link to an article which I recently read which summarizes research on the passage of celiac antibodies into breast milk:

http://www.infantris...-celiac-disease

This is a great website for information on the effects of maternal ingestion of medications, herbs, foods, etc. on the breastfeeding infant.

If i remember right issues such as this are do to low folic acid levels (i could be wrong). Quote from wikipedia:

Supplementation with folic acid has also been shown to reduce the risk of congenital heart defects, cleft lips,[14] limb defects, and urinary tract anomalies.

It wouldnt be much of a strech to say that it might have something in common with it.

At any rate, if you were unable to absorb what you need because of celiac, then i can see the possible connection.

(i'm somewhat of a medical nerd :blink: )

    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
