Hi All - I have been VERY sick since the end of Nov. I have always has stomach issues, bloating, coughing, etc. I have lost over 20 lbs in the past month and have had a BILLION tests done. I won't get into it all because the story is so long. This week I had a HIDA Scan done which showed my gallbladder isn't functioning normally, 11%. It's supposed to be at least 35-40%. I was supposed to start a brand new job this coming Tue. and am now having surgery to remove my gallbladder on Monday. In the meantime both GI and General Surgeon recomended that I go through with yet another test and have the endoscopy done to rule out anything else. I did this yesterday. It showed that my stomach lining is inflammed and even starting to erode! The GI took biopsy's of this. To check for celiac and also a possible infection. I was doped up still from the procedure and don't remember everything he said. He told my Mom that he didn't think it was probably celiac because my intestines didn't look bad at all, just my stomach. He told me ideally he would like me to wait another week for surgery to see what the biopsy's come back with. However, I am also being told this gallbladder not functioning will NOT get better and will just continue to get worse. In an ideal world I would wait, however I cannot keep pushing my start date back on my new job. I don't want to have an surgery that I might not need, but I don't want to find out it's also celiac or a bacteria and 3 weeks into my new job, need my gallbladder out now. Also with the findings on this test could I be gluten intolerant but not celiac? My cousins daughter who was about 6 at the time, had an endoscopy as she was bleeding in her stools. They found her stomach had inflammation and they did tell her to remove gluten (but didn't confirm) celiac. I know they are also testing for H-Pylori (to which I have already had a negative blood test for, and negative stool test for, however I was on prilosec during the stool test which can produce false negatives) I would like to hear feedback from all of you. My syptoms have been chest pain/breathing difficulties (gone now), stomach burning, nausea, vomiting, diaherrea, constipation, green stool, high white blood count.

Hi Bekkaz,

 

Gall bladder issues are somewhat common in people with celiac disease.  You can search the forum and find threads from people about them.  Wether the gall bladder would get better or not on a gluten-free diet is a good question.  I don't think there is any way to know without trying it.  I think you already had you gall bladder removed though so guess it will remain unknown.

 

I really just wanted to reply because it seems we missed your thread, sorry! :(

 

Here's an article about non-celiac wheat reactions.  The researchers don't know much about it's effects yet, or how to test for it, but they are learning.

    • ennis how do you test for Candida overgrowth did I have to see a functional doctor or do medical doctors test. It would seem like a plausible  explanation to my symptoms. 
    • Hello everyone.    Ive been diagnosed with celiac for about 4 years now. It's been a rough road but I feel like I've gotten as good as I can get with eliminating gluten completely from my diet.    I am an undergraduate student with a driven passion to become a nurse (I'm a guy, I know). I love the field and can't wait to help people every day.   As some of you may know, the nursing curriculum is extremely intense. I have an very strict routine and schedule where I can handle the rigor of my classes, work, and fitness (I am really into health and fitness, it's the best release from the stresses induced from school. I get 6 hours of sleep on the dot and manage to work, volunteer, study, and eat decently well. I love my life when it's on this routine and am so happy and social with people around me. I'm making progress, I'm moving forward, making something of my life.    But lately I've been suffering. I've been getting sick a lot more often from what seems to be random uncontrollable cross contamination from various things. When I get sick, my routine gets all messed up, I fall off my schedule, and things start going downhill. I like to call it the "celiac rut" I get stuck in. When I'm sick I can't work out, without working out I get extremely stressed and can't sleep. Without sleep I can't focus on my school and you know, the slippery slope that pretty much leads to lots of depression and anxiety.    This. Absolutely. Sucks. I fall behind in school and have trouble focusing on my priorities because I need more sleep to heal, and I can't go to class or the gym when I'm throwing up or spending hours on the toilet. Plus the mental symptoms turn me into an angry antisocial gluten monster. So that's always fun.   I really don't know how to manage this. I feel like at this rate I won't be able to keep up with my daily life. I physically can not handle the lifestyle I have when I get sick, and it piles up because when I get better I'm like weeks behind in material in my classes.    I am am normally a super happy outgoing guy, I love being the person I truly am. But gluten is singlehandedly tearing my life apart and the depression is starting to take it's toll.    I honestly dont know what to get out of posting this. I just hope that someone has some sort of trick or secret to get through this awful "celiac rut."
    • Hello, I have the same issue with the hair loss a few months after going gluten free, I have been getting the b12 shot and was also told to take Vit D and Calcium, Also told it was because my guts are still not happy after all i put them thru, It's very upsetting losing the amount of hair I have, my right side of my head is about 65% thinner then the left...Was told it see a Diet person right away. 
    • There is sort of a detox/withdrawal thing for the first few weeks for most. Keep a food diary, often after a glutening a new intolerance will creep up for awhile. Sort of your body associating another food with gluten, and or it just being picky while damaged. Write down everything you eat, how you fix it, seasonings etc. Change up the diet, and look for patterns.  My own gut is being picky today and had D after 2 meals so I am rotating up and narrowing down the culprit tomorrow myself....only see 4 common things in my food dairy.
    • Thanks for your reply. I'm currently grain free, although I ended up making kitchary because I needed something of substance in my stomach. Seems to have helped. Some other symptoms coming on strong, so just hoping I have some answers soon, to make sure I'm at least on the right path!
