- ‘Gluten induced enteropathy’.Is it found in India?
- Q: In what parts of world is this disease common?
- A: Genetic test determines if an at-risk individual (due to family history of disease) carries the genes responsible for the disease. If the genes are absent, the person will never develop the disease and they do not require regular antibody screening test. In case one tests positive for the genes, it places the individual in ‘at-risk’ category and regular monitoring would be required. Genetic test may also be required in those who have symptoms but have not had a biopsy as in this case, a negative test would mean that the disease is not present and symptoms are due to some other disorder. The presence of the genes, however, does not mean that you have celiac disease; it only labels you ‘at-risk’ or genetically predisposed and you would require regular antibody testing. Nearly 33% of the U.S. population carries these genes but only 1 to 4% of them go on to develop the disorder. Both the antobody test and the genetic test are done on a blood specimen and can be done together. You need to contact your doctor or laboratory for further details as often the antibody testing is done in a Clinical Chemistry/Biochemistry lab while HLA is tested in a Genetic laboratory.
- Celiac and Pregnancy, Crazy?
- Q: Ok where do I start. For about 2 weeks I was experiencing some brown blood which I assumed to be my period? I finally came online and saw sometimes is could mean pregnancy but it means it’s a tubal pregnancy or miscarriage. Thing is I had my period, just brown and occasionally only spots of red for almost three weeks! I let that go. I’ve been having sharp pains in my left and right sides and my stomach is hard as a rock and the area below the “gut” and above the vagina is hard(I’ve heard this is linked to pregnancy?) I’ve also had extreme bloating feelings and gas along with diarrhea. And as well as weird cravings and bursts of hunger, but when I eat about 15 min later prob not even I’m having sharp pains. These are all symptoms of pregnancy I’m sure we’ll all agree. I’ve also researched some blogs with people who had the extreme bloating and sharp pains and 98% of them were pregnant.But, get this. My aunt was diagnosed with Celiac disease(gluten free diet, will eat away your small intestine)and it’s hereditary but she doesn’t even know who she could have got it from. Well let me just copy and paste symptoms I’ve found linked with it, I’ll mark it with * If I have it.What are the symptoms of celiac disease?Symptoms of celiac disease vary from person to person. Symptoms may occur in the digestive system or in other parts of the body. Digestive symptoms are more common in infants and young children and may includeabdominal bloating and pain *chronic diarrhea *vomiting *only just today but sick feelings I’ve ignored tooconstipation *NO*pale, foul-smelling, or fatty stool *NO*weight loss *NO, weight gain thats why i’m leaning toward pregnancyAdults are less likely to have digestive symptoms and may instead have one or more of the following:unexplained iron-deficiency anemia *NO*fatigue*NO*bone or joint pain *arthritis*NO*bone loss or osteoporosisdepression or anxiety *OH YES*tingling numbness in the hands and feet *NO*seizures*NO*missed menstrual periods *Not sure yet, last one was browninfertility or recurrent miscarriage *Hope notcanker sores inside the mouth *NO!*an itchy skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis * NO*People with celiac disease may have no symptoms but can still develop complications of the disease over time. Long-term complications include malnutrition—which can lead to anemia, osteoporosis, and miscarriage, among other problems—liver diseases, and cancers of the intestine.Also, Celiac disease is both a disease of malabsorption—meaning nutrients are not absorbed properly—and an abnormal immune reaction to gluten. Celiac disease is also known as celiac sprue, non-tropical sprue, and gluten-sensitive enteropathy. Celiac disease is genetic, meaning it runs in families*MY AUNT*Sometimes the disease is triggered—or becomes active for the first time—after surgery, pregnancy*wow it can become apparent during pregnancy*, childbirth, viral infection, or severe emotional stress*I’ve been crying excessively and have been real sensitive*Forgot to also say something important. My period finally completely stopped yesterday but now, I’m having excessive urinating and just this morning i got morning sickness.OK so my point of showing you all this was I’m thinking, would I be pregnant AND starting to react to Celiac?? PLease someone research this. I would go to the doctor but I just got insurance a few days ago and it’s not active til Jan 14. I just wanna research this so I can go into the doctor’s telling them exactly what is wrong. Question is though, should I go to the Gynecologist or my regular Physician???
- A: Go to your gp. They will do a blood test for pregnancy, and you will get your answer about that very soon.Then, tell him or her that your aunt was diagnosed with celiac and you would like a screening test should your pregnancy test come back negative. You can have active celiac with little to no symptoms. My symptoms were very, very mild anemia (low normal) and migraines with the occasional stomach ache. Pregnancy is probably what triggered my celiac. Your Aunt got celiac from her mother and father, it is as simple as that. Her parents were carriers and gave her the genes, she had something trigger it, just like I did, just like everyone who has celiac has happen to them. Since it runs in your family, please be aware of the signs and symptoms of childhood celiac. Good luck!
- For celiacs, cross contamination seems impossible to avoid- isn’t it good enough to just not eat gluten foods?
- Q: Celiac is an enteropathy, not an allergy, so are tiny invisible particles actually a legitimate concern? I mean, I’m eating gluten-free, I get that, of course, and I understand why I can’t have, for example, french fries made in the same oil as breaded stuff, because it actually has bread in that oil that gets right in the food, but a lot of this other stuff seems overboard. Do they think I am made of money and have time to eat only at home for every meal and snack? Like buying all new stuff, worrying about your stuff being cooked on the same grill. New toaster, new utensils, etc, really? My rice bread is not going to pick up crumbs of old wheat bread from the bottom of my old toaster, I would see them, and pick them off before I ate them. People on these websites act like gluten is invisible, like germs, but it’s not, is it? This woman at this link http://www.prayercore.com/csgvt/?Page=Avoiding%20Contamination apparently won’t even use the same computer mouse as her husband, and she is worried about her kid having gym class in the same room as the cafeteria. This sounds a little crazy to me. Can’t I just, you know, not eat things containing gluten? Do I really have to worry about touching the keyboard at work or whether my rice bread sandwich sat on the same counter as one with regular bread? The dang thing is still *made* of rice bread, it sounds like pure OCD to suggest that it picked up invisible particles by touching the same clean countertop. This gluten-free diet is expensive, and I hate to think that everything in my environment is working to cancel it out. If I can’t avoid contamination and my villi are never going to grow back anyway because I kissed my non-celiac bf or I used the keyboard at work or some customer sneezed on me and I inhaled a gluten particle, then what’s the point of changing my diet and spending all this extra money on it? It can’t be all that bad, right, changing the diet is enough? I want to feel better but jeez. I can’t control everyone around me.Everyone please ignore the first answer by “Hannah” about acai berries, it’s spam. The answer has nothing to do with my question about celiac disease/ wheat intolerance. Acai is yummy but I don’t know what it has to do with pills, and weight-loss diets are all scams, healthy eating and keeping active keep one healthy at any size, if one is active and eating healthy then there is no reason to worry about weight loss except stupid social pressure. This question is about celiac diet, using diet in the CORRECT sense of the word meaning “way of eating”, which has nothing to do with weight loss, Hannah. I am asking a question here about whether cross-contamination is really that big of an issue if one has celiac and is eating gluten-free/celiac-safe foods.
- A: “Celiac is an enteropathy, not an allergy, so are tiny invisible particles actually a legitimate concern?”Well yes and no….. invisable particals are just that, particals that can still harm your system.Unfortunatly cross contamination is a big deal! I know that the diet is expensive and a pain however it is more of a pain if there is cross contamination somewhere because you will more that likely know about it! You may get pains or other symptoms like gastro or just feel unwell for 24-48hrs. My mum was diagnosed with coeliac 27 yrs ago I have it and so does my grandma. The toaster thing is very important because just one crumb is enough to undo all the good that you are doing on the diet. And you dont need to go overboard with the buying seperate spoons and things only for your self however when you stir your paster make sure you dont use a spoon that has stired normal wheat pasta. Also another big trap i am finding is the ‘dubble dipping” in butter and spreads. If other members double dip a spoon then spread on toast then back into the jar etc then the crumbs are there for you and yet again cause you a problem. I suggest get your own butter and own spreads to prevent this and dont forget to lable. The counter issue isnt one if you wipe the crumbs away before putting your bread on it. Also the grill thing is right it doesnt take much to transfer from one to the other, but a wipe down solves this too. The crumbs are not ‘invisable’ as such but they can be kinda small and not noticable.I know it is a lot to deal with but you will do it automatically soon. Now this lady with the worry about the computer and the “air born” gluten I can assure you that unless you like next to wheat crops whilst it is harvesting and inhail bits out of the air I wouldnt worry about computer cross contmination or sneezing for that matter!!!Hope this helps.
