  1. Celiac.com 05/01/2018 - Celiac disease is marked by a variety of intestinal and extra-intestinal symptoms. One of the most common and best described expressions of celiac disease outside the gut is the presence of osteopenia and osteoporosis, which make for a higher fracture risk. A team of researchers recently set out to see if a gluten-free diet (GFD) improves bone mineralization. The research team included MB Zanchetta, AF Costa, V Longobardi, R Mazure, F Silveira, MP Temprano, H Vázquez, C Bogado, SI Niveloni, E Smecuol, ML Moreno, A González, E Mauriño, JR Zanchetta, and JC Bai. They are variously associated with the Instituto de Diagnóstico e Investigaciones Metabólicas, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Research Institute, Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires, Argentina; the Department of Medicine, Dr C. Bonorino Udaondo Gastroenterología Hospital, Buenos Aires, Argentina; and with Consejo de Investigaciones en Salud, Health Ministry, Buenos Aires City Government, Buenos Aires, Argentina. These researchers previously identified a significant deterioration of bone microarchitecture in premenopausal women with newly diagnosed celiac disease using high‐resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HRpQCT). In that study, the team also compared 1‐year results with those of a control group of healthy premenopausal women of similar age and BMI in order to assess whether the micro-architectural parameters of treated celiac patients had reached the values expected for their age. While that study showed that a year on a gluten-free diet had improved most of the women’s bone parameters, it also showed that those parameters continued to be significantly lower than those of healthy control subjects. In a recent paper, the team describes the results of their study that offers data to show improvements bone mineralization microarchitecture in celiac patients after three years on a gluten-free diet.

    Anger?

    Hello everyone, I am new to join this forum, though I have been look at your posts since I was diagnosed in September (it's now end of October). Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Lori. I'm 43, female, and have had stomach issues for my whole life. As a child, I was ALWAYS tired. My doctor couldn't figure out what was wrong with me and just told my mom to get me into sports to help tire me out at night. I missed a lot of school because I was sick quite a bit, but got good grades so no one seemed to be bothered by it. Over the past 2 years my symptoms were consistently getting worse. Just before I had my gallbladder removed (gall bladder attacks that were getting longer), I started vomiting on a regular basis. Didn't seem to matter if I had an empty or full stomach or if I felt okay. I would be vomiting at least 2 times a week and chewing on ginger tablets constantly. Diarrhea also got worse but I didn't think much of it because I had been diagnosed with IBS when I was 20 and the celiac biopsies came back negative. I was taking 2 to 4 Immodium gel pills every day just to get through work. My doctor did numerous tests to find out why I was so sick all the time but no positive results for anything. She decided to send me for another gastroscopy and colonoscopy since it had been over 20 years since my last one. There, the doctor found out that I have a sliding hiatus hernia, ulcers, and bile reflux. He also did some biopsies which came back "blunted villi" so he recommended that my doctor send me for celiac blood tests. Sure enough, they both came back positive. This after a psychiatrist told me I should be tested again - years ago when the depression medication didn't work and my inflammation levels were through the roof. Today I also found out I have osteopenia. I thought I had worked through the anger that I hadn't been diagnosed years ago (when it wasn't too late to prevent a lot of the issues I have now), but it has raised it's ugly head again. My question to all of you is, how did you get past the anger at all the missed/wrong diagnoses over the years? I would have gone back and insisted on the doctor doing something if I hadn't assumed I had IBS for over 20 years. Maybe I could have had children. Maybe I could have prevented the bone loss and hair loss. Also, did anyone find that their hair grew back? How long did it take? Happy to have found all of you! Lori Here are my symptoms/related illnesses: Depression (diagnosed at 19 with intermittent success with medication combinations) Chronic inflammation Joint pain Skin rashes Chronic fatigue B12 and Iron deficiency anemia for years - I have had to take strong supplements for over 20 years. Hair loss PCOS (but I still ovulate so I'm wondering if this is true) Insulin resistant/pre-diabetic Very overweight beginning in 20s with difficulty losing weight for years (except the time I eliminated ALL grains)
  3. Hi everyone, Due to poor bone health and high blood work, I am suspected to have Celiac's (a few more weeks and I will be back in the States to complete testing!). Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone had success stories about regaining bone density? My nephrologist says this will happen, and I trust her, but I would like to hear what anyone here did that helped or any sort of recommendations.
  4. Based on the information below, can anyone explain a 2.8% loss of bone density at the Fermoral Neck and 6.6% gain at the Lumber Spine after 2 years? I have Celiac and I'm stunned by the opposite! Treatment: Alendronate, 70 mg/week between April 25, 2013 to May 3, 2014. Ended due to stomach pain. Project Healthy Bones Class: Feb. 24, 2014 to April 20, 2015. We focus on posture, balance, strength and flexibility. Supplements: Calcium and Vit. D, daily. Bone Density Results T- Values Site March, 2013 April, 2015 Lumber Spine -2.7 -2.2 L1-L4, Dx osteoporosis osteopenia Density, g/cm2 0.797 0.850 Change, % ------------ +6.6 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Left Hip -1.7 -1.7 Dx osteopenia osteopenia Density, g/cm2 0.773 0.776 Change, % ---------- +0.4 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Femoral Neck -2.3 -2.5 Dx osteopenia osteoporosis Density, g/cm2 0.612 0.595 Change, % ----------- -2.8 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks!
