Celiac disease skin problems

Common Questions and Answers about Celiac disease skin problems

skin

I have gained over 75 pounds in the past eight years, have regular debilitating migraines, have skin tags and warts growing, no energy, don't sleep well, liver spots, and depression. The only thing the doctor will work with me to fix is he believes I have celiac disease or an allergy to glutin. I disagree and fell more certain I have things going on with my hormones, and liver. I had slightly elevated liver enzymes and I have been going through menopausal symptoms for about year.

Celiac is NOT an allergy to gluten and wheat. It is an autoimmune disease. Google "celiac" and "celiac fibromyalgia" and see what pops up. It's your body, please educate yourself. My experience from making the rounds from doctor to doctor for 11 YEARS is that they don't know much about Celiac, and it's my responsibility to take care of me, physically as well as educationally.
My problems did not go away. Then I thought I had Celiac disease so i eliminated all wheat and gluten. Problems did not go away. I was frustrated to say the least. It did not matter what I ate I always felt bad. April 2...I spent 6 days in the hospital and I noticed the day after I got home I felt pretty good. During that time I never ate sugar or gluten...I FELT GREAT!
*Bloated easily *Tired constantly (no matter if I sleep 8 or more hours each night) *Dizziness *Weakness *Dry Skin (eczema) *Constipated (average of one bowel movement every three days) *Tingling sensation in face, arms, and shoulders *Confused/foggy feeling *Panic attacks (Diagnosed GAD and Panic Disorder) *Depressed Currently, I am not on any anxiety or depression medicines as I was doing well for a few months and gradually went off them.
I have been diagnosed with celiac disease. They say I have other food allergies also. Rice, Oat, green beans, bananas, diary products, tomatoes, and numerous more. Is there someone that has these problems that could encourage me as I also have hashimoto and am still symtomatic and getting it straightened out. I am taking protonix and it helps with the pain of celiac and am trying to eat without gluten.
What other health problems do people with celiac disease have? People with celiac disease tend to have other diseases in which the immune system attacks the body's healthy cells and tissues. The connection between celiac disease and these diseases may be genetic.
One note on the allergy - I don't show an allergy to anything on a skin test - it has to be a blood test for Celiac (wheat allergy). Currently, I haven't taken any thyroid meds for a month because when I quit eating wheat my energy went sky hi & now the thyroid hormone (even 1/2 my regular dose of synthetic which ususally gives me no energy) makes my heart race and I get way too hyper . So I can't take anything until after I talk with doc tomorrow.
I don't have time right now to go into alot of detail but to get checked for celiac.... the gastro. doc can do specific blood tests for it. BUT, unless you have a GOOD informed doc., do your own research before you go in and ask for the specific tests by name. Write it down. I went to have it done and they ran the tests and came back with some negatives and a couple of positives. They said, "yup, you have celiac.
I was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease, and was wondering if marijuana was an accepted treatment? I've done my best to have a gluten, wheat and barley free diet, but sometimes I accidentally eat some, and the pain is tremendous. I'm really in the dark about pain management for the disease, and would be very wary about taking any Opioid based pain medications, as I have a very addictive personality and do not want to take the risk of forming an addiction.
Do some reading on the subject of celiac and dermatitis herpetiformis. It is an autoimmune condition that, like celiac disease, is a response to gluten. People develop painful blisters, itching, and burning on primarily the elbows, knees, and buttocks. In some it can be managed with diet, but can also be treated with the use of sulfones. Talk to your doctor.
There's no connection I know of between the two. Have you been checked for celiac? Many think celiac disease automatically means loss of weight, but that's not entirely true. Many with celiac disease have trouble with their weight and complaining about constantly feeling 'large' and do have increased weight problems.
IM A 22YR OLD FEMALE. I FOUND OUT I HAVE CELIAC DISEASE 2 1/2YRS AGO. IM ON A GLUTEN FREE DIET. BEFORE I CHANGED MY DIET THE MAIN SYMPTOM I HAD WERE MIGRAINES (WHICH IS AN ATYPICAL SYMPTOM I KNOW) WHICH STARTED AROUND PUBERTY. BEFORE MY DIET CHANGED MY MIGRAINES WERE 5-6DAYS A WK AND LASTED FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME AND ONLY STOPPED WHEN I WENT TO SLEEP. WE THINK ITS GENETIC ON MY DADS SIDE OF THE FAMILY.
I have been in a fare for about 5 weeks and its really hard to deal with every thing all at once the muscle pain jointpain, swelling, eyes so dry and irritated I want to claw them. Does any body else have problems with your skin being so dry no matter how much lotion you use? especially my feet .
I would first suggest you search "Celiac Disease Symptoms" to see what you find. I am not a doctor but I've had the exact same symtpoms you've had (except the irregular menstrual:) I went to my GI doctor, told her what was happening, and she VERY QUICKLY diagnosed me as having IBS.
in about 7 months I had lost over 47 lbs. I was on the couch most of the time. I had read an article on celiac, and ask my dr for a blood test. It was Celiac. I was dehydrated, malnutrition, and she wrote "failure to thrive" wow, that scared me. I had bounced back and forth with Drf. We had moved to the coast, and then back. I went to a gastroenterologist for continueing problems in my bowel.
Celiac disease is very tricky! My doctor says I have it and that I shouldn't waste my time and money on tests. He is sure because I have the symptoms and then when I stop gluten (and also nuts and dairy), I feel better! I also have skin issues, and they get better when I don't eat gluten also. PLEASE, PLEASE do not eat gluten. You are correct - it is making you sick. A gluten-free diet is healthy for everybody. Is it annoying to your family and friends?
IBS is a symptom of celiac,Ibs is not a disease or illness its just a symptom.And i believe most of us IBS sufferers have some sort of intolerance of another and that would explain why we have the ibs.
Hi, I am 18 and For 18 months i've had pretty consistent problems with skin on my face, i've been to 4 doctors and one dermatologist who all suggest that it's either Eczema or Seborheic Eczema (sp?). i've been given 3 prescription creams over the 18months which are, Daktacort, Elidel and Protopic 0.03%. The problem is i have redness on both cheeks and the central area of my forehead.
When eating wheat/gluten, I become extremely tired, bloated, my joints begin to ache, I have EXTREME water weight gain, and the usual digestive and skin problems. I don't believe I have DH, but I do have skin problems when eating gluten. For instance, I break out in thin whip like markings or rashes that itch like crazy. The whips are different sizes, and appear randomly on my skin. Some are really tiny and appear on my fingers.
for diagnosing celiac----because an allergy to milk protein can cause the same kind of intestinal damage that celiac disease does. also, taking alot of NSAIDs can cause damage that looks like celiac in teh duodenal bulb------i learned that one last year when i had a scope to dilate my esophagus and they tried to tell me i had celiac disease. i did a little research and got my Ttg levels checked because i know i am DQ2 positive.
I am very desperate and want to try a gluten free diet NOW, but understand I shouldn't as it might mess up any test results run by the specialist. My sister has celiac disease. She has always been smaller and sicker than I was though. How did you know you were Celiac? Did it turn on suddenly? Did you get sick gradually? Did your blood work come back positive? I'm just searching for answers from people who may have been in my shoes before. Thanks.
This information was found over months of research. What is called Celiac Disease is a collection of possible symptoms that describe damage caused to the human body when there exists an inability to deal with Wheat Gluten. Recent research suggests that many more people are affected by this than were previously thought.
Celiac disease is very difficult to be diagnosed,just 3 months keep gluten free diet to see what is happening.
I'm sure this question has been asked before but I would love to know what happens to others with Celiac disease or Gluten intollerance after eating gluten. I suffer from extreme brain fog, both feet and hands sting/burn, extreme anxiety, depression, muscle aches and joint pain. I also have difficulty concentrating. What happens to you?
ALSO, IF YOU ARE LACTOSE INTOLERANT, THAT IS COMMON WITH CELIAC DISEASE, AS WELL AS YOU COULD HAVE NEUROLOGICAL PROBLEMS SUCH AS SEIZURES, WHICH MAY EXPLAIN YOUR SEIZURES... ANOTHER THOUGHT IS TO SEE A NEUROLOGIST, BECAUSE I HAVE ALSO HAD SEIZURES, AS WELL AS OTHER NEURO PROBLEMS... ARE YOU FATIGUED, DEPRESSED, ANEMIC, DO YOUR BONE OR JOINTS HURT, DO YOU GET MUSCLE CRAMPS, DIABETES I? I ALSO HAVE MANY OF THESE PROBLEMS BECAUSE OF THIS CONDITION...
Hi there, My husband had mild digestive problems but some fairly heavy-duty skin problems for many years before we finally got him tested for gluten problems. Blood tests showed nada, but the Enterolab results were positive for both gluten problems, and as in your case, casein cross-reactivity. He's been on a gluten-free diet for 2 years, and when we finally figured out he'd have to do it, he went casein-free also - that was about 8 months after he first went gluten-free.
She is at risk of having other autoimmune disorders but this is not very common but important to know, these include diabetes, vitiligo (lack of skin color), celiac disease, adrenal problems etc. So as she is treated be sure her doc is following her for any symptoms that may raise suspicion. She should see a pediatric endocrinologist at least once a year along with her pediatrician, I would ask for only one of them to be in charge of her thyroid as too many cooks in the kitchen....
Could I have Celiac disease? I was wondering if I could have celiac disease causing my anxiety/depression or if the anxiety/depression was causing my IBS symtoms to get worse? On Nov. 20, 2009 I had my Thyroid test (TSH) and my CBC which were all 'normal', but my set. rate was slightly elevated. Please read on for a history..... I have had IBS symptoms (was never officially diagnosed) for many years.
