  1. Celiac.com 02/27/2019 - Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition with numerous symptoms, and associated conditions. People with celiac disease often have gastrointestinal symptoms, including upset stomach, abdominal pain, gas, bloating, indigestion, and diarrhea. Some suffer from many of these on a regular basis. What are the most common symptoms? What are common associated conditions? However, many people show few or no symptoms. No single set of signs or symptoms is typical for everyone with celiac disease. Signs and symptoms almost always vary from person to person. So, while many people show classic symptoms, significant numbers of adults with celiac disease present few or no symptoms, including no gastrointestinal symptoms, when diagnosed. Symptoms Can Vary Between Children and Adults The signs and symptoms of celiac disease can vary greatly and are different in children and adults. The most common signs for adults are diarrhea, fatigue and weight loss. Adults may also experience bloating and gas, abdominal pain, nausea, constipation, and vomiting. Symptoms in Children Children under 2 years old celiac symptoms often include vomiting, chronic diarrhea, failure to thrive, muscle wasting, poor appetite, and swollen belly. Older children may experience diarrhea, constipation, weight loss, irritability, short stature, delayed puberty, and neurological symptoms, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, headaches, lack of muscle coordination and seizures Associated Systemic Symptoms Certain associated conditions serve as potential systemic symptoms of celiac disease, including persistent anemia, chronic fatigue, weight loss, obesity, osteopenia, osteoporosis and fractures, amenorrhea, infertility, muscle cramps, and tooth enamel defects. Vague Symptoms Can Delay Celiac Diagnosis It is not uncommon for symptoms of celiac disease to be vague or confusing. Vague or confusing symptoms can include dental enamel defects, bone disorders like osteoporosis, depression, irritability, joint pain, mouth sores, muscle cramps, skin rash, stomach discomfort, and even neuropathy, often experienced as tingling in the legs and feet. To make matters more challenging, celiac symptoms can also mimic symptoms of other diseases, such as anemia, Crohns disease, gastric ulcers, irritable bowel, parasitic infection, even various skin disorders or nervous conditions. Vague or confusing symptoms can delay celiac disease diagnosis. Signs and Symptoms of Celiac Disease Abdominal cramps, gas and bloating Acne Anemia Borborygmi—stomach rumbling Coetaneous bleeding Delayed puberty Dental enamel defects Diarrhea Dry skin Easy bruising Epistaxis—nose bleeds Eczema Failure to thrive or short stature Fatigue or general weakness Flatulence Fluid retention Foul-smelling or grayish stools that are often fatty or oily Gastrointestinal symptoms Gastrointestinal hemorrhage General malaise, feeling unwell Hematuria—red urine Hypocalcaemia/hypomagnesaemia Infertility, or recurrent miscarriage Iron deficiency anemia Joint Pain Lymphocytic gastritis Malabsorption Malnutrition Muscle weakness Muscle wasting Nausea Obesity/Overweight Osteoporosis Pallor—pale, unhealthy appearance Panic Attacks Peripheral neuropathy Psychiatric disorders such as anxiety and depression Skin Problems—acne, eczema, DH, dry skin Stunted growth in children Underweight Vertigo Vitamin B12 deficiency Vitamin D deficiency Vitamin K deficiency Vomiting Voracious appetite Weight loss Conditions Associated with Celiac Disease People with one or more of these associated conditions are at higher risk for celiac disease: Addison's Disease Anemia Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Arthritis Asthma Ataxia, Nerve Disease, Neuropathy, Brain Damage Attention Deficit Disorder Autism Bacterial Overgrowth Cancer, Lymphoma Candida Albicans Canker Sores—Aphthous Stomatitis) Casein / Cows Milk Intolerance Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Cognitive Impairment Crohn's Disease Depression Dermatitis Herpetiformis Diabetes Down Syndrome Dyspepsia, Acid Reflux Eczema Epilepsy Eye Problems, Cataract Fertility, Pregnancy, Miscarriage Fibromyalgia Flatulence—Gas Gall Bladder Disease Gastrointestinal Bleeding Geographic Tongue—Glossitis Growth Hormone Deficiency Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Heart Failure Infertility, Impotency Inflammatory Bowel Disease Intestinal Permeability Irritable Bowel Syndrome Kidney Disease Liver and biliary tract disorders (transaminitis, fatty liver, primary sclerosing cholangitis, etc.) Low bone density Lupus Malnutrition, Body Mass Index Migraine Headaches Multiple Sclerosis Myasthenia Gravis Celiac Disease Obesity, Overweight Osteopenia, osteoporosis, osteomalacia Psoriasis Refractory Celiac Disease & Collagenous Sprue Sarcoidosis Scleroderma Schizophrenia / Mental Problems Sepsis Sjogrens Syndrome Sleep Disorders Thrombocytopenic Purpura Thyroid & Pancreatic Disorders Tuberculosis Top Scientific References on Celiac Symptoms University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center Mayo Clinic Celiac Disease Center
  2. Celiac.com 03/21/2018 - Many people with celiac disease suffer from non-gastrointestinal symptoms. Here are 15 non-gastrointestinal symptoms that can make celiac disease difficult to diagnose. If the general public knows anything about celiac disease, it is likely that eating wheat can cause stomach problems in people with the condition. And that’s often true, classical celiac symptoms include abdominal bloating and pain, chronic diarrhea and/or constipation, and vomiting. Young children are more likely to show classic signs of celiac disease, including growth problems (failure to thrive, chronic diarrhea/constipation, recurring abdominal bloating and pain, fatigue, and irritability. Older children and adults tend to have symptoms that are not entirely gastrointestinal in nature. So, depending on age, and other factors, celiac disease affects different people differently. In fact, there are more than 200 signs and symptoms of celiac disease. Some patients have several, some just a few. Many report non-gastrointestinal symptoms. And many people with celiac disease never show any symptoms at all. Yet, both people with vague symptoms and those with no symptoms still face a higher risk of developing complications associated with celiac disease, as well as for celiac-associated conditions. Recent research has demonstrated that only a third of adult patients diagnosed with celiac disease experience diarrhea. Weight loss is also not a common sign. In fact, far more patients diagnosed these days are over weight. We’ve covered the most common physical complaints of people with celiac disease, but here is a list of fifteen common non-gastrointestinal symptoms that can make celiac disease hard to diagnose: 1) ANEMIA—The most common non-gastrointestinal problem faced by people with celiac disease is anemia. About one in three celiacs (34%) suffer from anemia. Anemia and Celiac Disease Is Celiac Disease Worse In People With Anemia? Celiac Disease and Iron Deficiency Linked in Caucasians, But Not Non-Caucasians 2) BLOATING—20% of celiacs complained of bloating prior to diagnosis. 3) DERMATITIS HERPETIFORMIS, PSORIASIS & other skin conditions—Many people with celiac disease suffer from dermatitis herpetiformis, psoriasis, or other skin conditions. Dermatitis Herpetiformis: Skin Condition Associated with Celiac DiseaseSkin Problems and Celiac Disease Five Common Skin Conditions Associated With Celiac Disease Psoriasis and Celiac Disease 4) ATAXIA, NERVE DISEASE, NEUROPATHY—Many people with celiac disease suffer from ataxia, nerve disease, or neuropathy, especially peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral Neuropathy 5) CRYPTOGENIC HYPERTRANSAMINASEMIA—nearly one-third (29%) of people with celiac disease, have what is called cryptogenic hypertransaminasemia, also known as celiac hepatitis. 6) THYROID DISEASE—Thyroid disorders are common in people with celiac disease. Thyroid & Pancreatic Disorders and Celiac Disease Should Patients with Autoimmune Thyroid Disease Be Screened for Celiac Disease? 7) JOINT PAIN—Joint pain is a common complaint of many people with celiac disease, possibly due to associated inflammation. ? DENTAL ENAMEL DEFECTS—Researchers have recently linked dental enamel defects with celiac disease. In the future, dentists may play an important role in helping to diagnose celiac disease, especially in patients with non-classical or vague symptoms, by noting dental enamel defects common in people with celiac disease. Dental Enamel Defects Indicate Adult Celiac Disease Distinct Tooth Enamel Defects Can Help Reveal Celiac Disease 9) UNEXPLAINED INFERTILITY, RECURRENT MISCARRIAGE—Women who suffer from unexplained infertility an/or recurrent miscarriage have a much higher risk of celiac disease. 10) OSTEOPENIA/OSTEOPOROSIS—A full 52% of patients with celiac disease suffer from osteopenia/osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a more serious bone density problem. Many people with celiac disease suffer from low bone density. Osteoporosis, Osteomalacia, Bone Density and Celiac Disease 11) PSORIASIS—Many people with celiac disease also have psoriasis. It’s also true that many people with psoriasis claim to find that a gluten-free diet can help their symptoms to improve. 12) PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS—Many people with celiac disease suffer from psychiatric disorders such as anxiety and depression. In some cases, especially in those without classic symptoms, these psychiatric disorders can be among the few symptoms, and can make celiac disease difficult to diagnose. 13) CANKER SORES (Aphthous Stomatitis)—People with celiac disease have much higher rates of canker sores. In fact, nearly 20% of people with symptomatic celiac disease had canker sores as one of their symptoms. In many cases, these canker sores are recurrent, and can be one of the few or only signs of celiac disease. 14) FATIGUE—Many people with celiac disease report recurrent fatigue as one of their symptoms. Sometimes, fatigue can be one of the few or only symptoms, making celiac disease difficult to diagnose. 15) WEIGHT GAIN—Classic celiac disease patients commonly suffered weight loss or low body weight. That has changed. These days, it is much more common for people with celiac disease to be overweight.

  3. Hi, my 5 year old daughter is being investigated for possible Celiac disease after several months of GI symptoms (pain, diarrhea alternating with constipation, recurring bouts of severe nausea, vomiting...). She scored >300 on a blood test where normal values are under 15 (transglutaminase antibodies I think). At the moment, we are waiting for the results of a second blood test to confirm the earlier results before a biopsy is scheduled in January. Her pediatric gastroenterologist offered no suggestions for dealing with "flare ups" and I've turned to you for advice. Can you think of anything that might appease the symptoms, especially the nausea and vomiting which really scare her? I thought drinking water might help to move the food faster through the GI tract and make her symptoms more "stool related", does anyone have any support for this theory? Tonight, I tried an acupressure point that had worked for me during my pregnancy-related nausea, and it seems to have helped (time will tell). I'm not expecting medically validated advice, but I would appreciate any anecdotal experience you might have so I could try to ease her suffering while I still have to feed her gluten. It breaks my heart to see her in pain like this. Thanks for your help.
  4. Celiac.com 09/25/2017 - There are currently several efforts underway to develop successful commercial enzyme treatments for celiac disease. Efforts include looking at the digestive enzymes in plants, such as the papaya and star fruits, including such predatory plants, such as the pitcher plant. One focus has been on developing enzymes that can break down gluten before it can trigger an immune reaction. This could prove helpful to many people with celiac disease. One such enzyme under development is Latiglutenase, formerly known as ALV003. Latiglutenase is a new name for an enzyme therapy designed to be taken with meals. The idea is that a person with celiac disease would take an enzyme tablet with a meal. If the meal had mild gluten contamination, the enzyme’s two recombinant proteins would break gluten into fragments that are not toxic to the immune system, thereby preventing exposure, and symptoms. But the stomach is a notoriously difficult environment to work in, so what seems like a simple idea quite a challenge from a science and biology perspective. Seeking to explore the ability of Latiglutinase to improve symptoms, a team of researchers recently set out to test latiglutenase on celiac patients who are seropositive despite following a gluten-free diet. The research team included Jack A. Syage, Joseph A. Murray, Peter H. R. Green and Chaitan Khosla. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester USA, the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, New York, USA, the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, Stanford University, USA, and with ImmunogenX, Newport Beach, USA. "Though the ALV003-1221 trial was inconclusive regarding histologic improvement from latiglutenase, the evidence for symptom benefit, which is more quickly achieved, is quite convincing and clinically relevant," Joseph Murray, MD, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., said in a press release. In these trials, patients with celiac disease who were seropositive despite following a gluten-free diet saw major improvement in symptoms when taking latiglutenase with meals, according to a post hoc analysis of the CeliAction study. The team was really hoping to see histological improvement, but they feel satisfied that this trial shows, says Dr. Murray, that a "therapy to help patients struggling with symptoms due to celiac disease is now within reach." Stay tuned for more on efforts to develop effective enzyme treatments for celiac disease. Read more: Dig Dis Sci. 2017 Doi:10.1007/s10620-017-4687-7.
  5. I am 22 years old and was just officially diagnosed with celiac a week ago. However, I had blood work done a month ago and my doctor thought that I had celiac based on those results. I have been slowly changing my diet out since then, but was not allowed to completely change it until after my endoscopy and biopsy 11 days ago. Since then, I have been 100% gluten free (other than accidentally eating salad dressing that contained gluten). I have been feeling great since I completely changed my diet. Until today, that is. I have been having symptoms all day that were similar to my gluten-induced symptoms, including stomach cramping, loose stools, and having to use the bathroom multiple times throughout the day. Another thing that I did not really experience before was bright red, what I assume to be blood, in my stools. The trouble is, I haven't ingested any gluten. I checked and then double checked all of the food labels from foods I've consumed over the past three days, and I haven't found anything that contains wheat. I suppose there is the possibility that there could be some cross-contamination, but I'm not sure what it would be from. My symptoms are pretty bad, and I don't really think trace amounts of gluten would cause this bad of a reaction. I understand it could be something else, such as an oncoming illness, stress, or god forbid, yet another condition. But I was just wondering if anyone else experienced anything similar shortly after changing their diet. If these symptoms persist for more than two days or so, I of course will go to the doctor. Thanks for any input!
  6. I have had strange health issues for the last 4 years. Unexplained rashes, food reactions (sometimes I react to everything that I eat- my lips get a rash and swell up and my eyes puff up as well….but then it goes away and I can never figure out what triggered it. I'm always full of anxiety- I feel like I can barely breathe…so I can't sleep at night because I feel like my heart is racing. Apart from this I also have typical celiac gastro intestinal stomach symptoms and recently I find that my mind is just going crazy and I can't focus on anything. Does this even sound like celiac disease? My doctor gave me a requisition for the test a few years ago and I never did it. He said he really didn't think I had it so I never did the test. I have decided to get tested now but stopped eating gluten 13 days ago prior to making that decision. (and a couple times during this period i accidentally ate soy sauce and a salad dressing that contains gluten) but I was starting to feel so much better!!.. I really don't want to do a 4-12 week gluten challenge. I've decided to do the home test (Biocard) and if it is a positive I will see my family doctor for further testing. My question is.. how long does gluten actually stay in the system? After 13 days (almost) gluten free is it necessary to do the challenge? Does anyone have experience or insight into the Biocard test? I am on day 3 of eating gluten again and I can't take the anxiety that i'm feeling from (i believe) eating gluten. If anyone has any input regarding the home test or advice on whether my symptoms sound celiac induced I would greatly appreciate it:) Thanks
  7. Hello, I'm sort of new to this whole thing and I'm looking for advice. About two months ago, my ankles started to have a lot of pain and it was uncomfortable to stand for long periods of time on my heels. Then they started to swell and even present some edema. I went to a podiatrist and he injected my ankles with cortizone and the swelling disappeared, but the pain didn't. My doctor put me on doxycycline with the idea that it was Lyme. But my symptoms progressed to headaches and extreme fatigue. My muscles also get really sore. I went off the doxy as two lyme tests two months apart showed negative. I was also tested for rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and hypothyroid. Though my thyroid levels were slightly elevated, my sedimentation levels were double what they should be and the c- reactive protein level was also unusually high. He said my whole body is inflamed and it seems like an autoimmune issue but he doesn't know why. This was just yesterday, so I haven't been tested for celiac or gluten intolerance but my son has had it since he was born and I'm very familiar with the problem. To all you pro's out there, does this sound like I could be developing the same issues as my son? Thanks so much...Steve
