Celiac Disease Symptoms / Gluten Intolerance
~
Gluten sensitivity and celiac disease have hundreds of symptoms; the following lists don’t contain them all, but are a good sampling:
~
* Gastrointestinal symptoms:
These are some of the “classic” — although not the most common — symptoms of celiac disease:
~ Abdominal pain and distension ~ Acid reflux ~ Bloating ~ Constipation ~ Diarrhea ~ Gas and flatulence ~ Greasy, foul-smelling, floating stools ~ Nausea ~ Vomiting ~ Weight loss or weight gain
~
* Nongastrointestinal symptoms:
Interestingly, although gluten sensitivity and celiac disease affect the gut, most people’s symptoms are not gastrointestinal in nature. This partial list includes just some of the more than 250 symptoms not centered in the digestive tract.
~ Fatigue and weakness (due to iron-deficiency anemia) ~ Vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies ~ Headaches (including migraines) ~ Joint/bone pain ~ Depression, irritability, listlessness, and mood disorders ~ “Fuzzy brain” or an inability to concentrate ~ Infertility ~ Abnormal menstrual cycles ~ Dental enamel deficiencies and irregularities ~ Seizures ~ Clumsiness (ataxia) ~ Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy) ~ Respiratory problems ~ Canker sores (apthus ulcers) ~ Lactose intolerance ~ Eczema/psoriasis ~ Rosacea (a skin disorder) ~ Acne ~ Hashimoto’s disease, Sjögren’s syndrome, lupus erythematosus, and other autoimmune disorders ~ Early onset osteoporosis ~ Hair loss (alopecia) ~ Bruising easily ~ Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) ~ Muscle cramping ~ Nosebleeds ~ Swelling and inflammation ~ Night blindness

GLUTEN INTOLERANCE
~
PCOS Lady:
Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease can be wicked to and in you… Three sets of symptoms are listed for you with the sites… The symptoms overlap other medical conditions… Headaches may be explained by being tested for one of these conditions…
~ I stress everyone be tested for Celiac Disease to know…
~
FACT: Most doctors can not draw a diagnosis from all your symptoms! They jump to diagnose you on a few only, hence a misdiagnosis!
FACT: Most doctors can not read your blood tests as a whole, only a few results they understand together…
~ I suggest you see an Endocrinologist, who specializes on internal chemistry, etc… (especially Diabetes)
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT! ~ All your symptoms… ~ Keep track of them… ~ It is your life!
~
Gluten Intolerance Symptoms – How Do You Know If Gluten Is Making You Sick?
~
* What are gluten intolerance symptoms?
* Are people with gluten intolerance just fussy eaters with a new excuse for their picky food habits?
~
Research shows that gluten sensitivity in some form, including celiac disease and mild gluten intolerance, affects approximately 15% of the US population. These statistics are likely to be similar in Western countries with similar health issues and dietary patterns.
~ Are you one of these people?
~ How do you recognize gluten intolerance symptoms?
~
First of all let’s * identify the difference between celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Celiac disease is an immune reaction, a severe sudden onset allergic reaction, to the protein called gluten. This is commonly found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley and oats. While celiac disease is initially an auto-immune disorder, it is also a disease of malabsorption, because essential nutrients are not absorbed. Therefore one of the most devastating symptoms of long-term undiagnosed celiac disease is malnutrition.
~
Gluten intolerance often has a slower onset than celiac disease, and may be hard to diagnose due to the broad range of symptoms and causes.
~
If you imagine a continuum of gluten intolerance symptoms, celiac disease is usually at the most extreme end with immediate autoimmune reactions. Some people with celiac disease may not have symptoms, but internally malabsorption and malnutrition can erode health over many years. Both celiac disease and gluten intolerance can be exacerbated by emotional stress, infection, surgery, pregnancy and childbirth. Every individual with some level of gluten intolerance or allergy may experience different shades of symptoms, hence the challenge for medical practitioners to diagnose.
~
So what are the specific symptoms of gluten intolerance and
celiac disease?

~
~ Weight loss or weight gain
~ Nutritional deficiencies due to malabsorption e.g. low iron levels
~ Gastro-intestinal problems (bloating, pain, gas, constipation, diarrhea)
~ Fat in the stools (due to poor digestion)
~ Aching joints
~ Depression
~ Eczema
~ Head aches
~ Exhaustion
~ Irritability and behavioural changes
~ Infertility, irregular menstrual cycle and miscarriage
~ Cramps, tingling and numbness
~ Slow infant and child growth
~ Decline in dental health
~
Undiagnosed for long periods of time, food intolerances have been found to contribute to diabetes, bowel cancer, anemia and osteoporosis.

Why You Should Eliminate Wheat from Your Diet
http://www.kitchendaily.com/read/why-you-should-eliminate-wheat-your-diet?icid=maing-grid7|maing9|dl8|sec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D245778
~ Kitchen Daily … Why You Should Eliminate Wheat from Your Diet … Gluten, a protein composite of gliadin and glutenin found in wheat and grains, may be addictive. Perhaps this explains the uncontrollable cravings for carbs many of us experience. This news was hard for us to digest, but not nearly as hard as gluten is on our intestines.
~
Since the 1950s, when scientists began cross-breeding wheat to make it grow faster, we’ve seen a few issues arise. Wheat is not as healthy as it used to be. U.S. plant scientist, Norman Borlaug, who won the the Nobel Prize for his work in wheat hybridization may have introduced some compounds that aren’t exactly friendly to our bodies. In fact, there are proteins found in today’s wheat that scientists can’t trace back to the original plant.
~
What could this mean for you? Unfortunately, digestion issues along with a slew of potential diseases, such as celiac’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and IBS. These problems can pertain to anyone, not just to those with severe gluten reactions or celiac’s disease.

How Can the Wealthiest Industrialized Nation be the Sickest?
~
September 15 2012
~
By Dr. Mercola
~
The human race is the unwitting participant in a massive science experiment, as presented in this masterful new documentary by Jeffrey Smith. Smith is one of the world’s leading authorities on the health dangers of genetically engineered (GE) foods.
~
The film expands on his second book, Genetic Roulette: The Documented Health Risks of Genetically Engineered Foods.
~
As a consumer advocate against GE foods, Smith’s authority is unrivaled. His meticulous research has documented how biotech companies continue to mislead legislators and safety officials.
~
The health of the environment in peril. Smith has made this information widely available via his Institute for Responsible Technology website, one of the most comprehensive sources of GE health information on the Internet.
~
Story at-a-glance
The health dangers of genetically engineered (GE) foods are masterfully presented in this documentary by Jeffrey Smith, one of the world’s leading authorities on GE foods
~
Americans get sick more often than Europeans or people from any other industrialized nation, and scientific evidence suggests a significant factor may be the genetic engineering of our food supply
~
Despite claims by government regulators and the food industry that GE foods are safe, scientific studies continue to show the opposite; GE foods have been linked with allergies, reproductive problems and infertility, birth defects, bizarre mutations, cancer, and now an unidentified mystery organism causing an epidemic of livestock deaths, “Sudden Death Syndrome”
~
GE foods trigger immune attack because they appear to your body as foreign invaders rather than food; this immune response can lead to chronic inflammation, which in turn raises your risk for multiple additional health problems
~
The two main types of GE foods are herbicide-tolerant crops and pesticide-producing crops; both are imprecise processes that are riddled with unexpected consequences, such as hundreds to thousands of genetic mutations that have unknown effects on human health
~
How Can the Wealthiest Industrialized Nation be the Sickest?
~
Americans get sick more often than Europeans or people from any other industrialized nation. Since the mid-1990s, the number of Americans suffering from at least three chronic illnesses nearly doubled. Life expectancy has decreased and infant mortality has increased. Illnesses once rare are now common, with some approaching epidemic levels. For example:
~
Autism now affects one in 88 children (CDC1), compared to one in 25,000 in the mid-1970s
~
Type 2 diabetes rates in the U.S. increased by 176 percent between 1980 and 2010
~
Celiac disease is four times more common now than 60 years ago
~
Alzheimer’s disease is rising at alarming rates. It’s estimated that 5.4 million Americans (one in eight older Americans) now has Alzheimer’s disease, and nearly half of those age 85 and older have it; AD rates have doubled since 1980
~
~ New infectious diseases are increasing in number, according to a 2008 study
~
~ In his documentary, Jeffrey Smith makes a convincing argument that one of the primary forces driving these illnesses is America’s changing food supply. And one of the most profound changes is genetically engineered food. Proving GE food is causing Americans to be sick is a tall order, but the evidence presented in this film is very compelling and should not be ignored.

MISDIAGNOSED
~
PCOS Lady:
~
I have a real issue with doctors and medical personnel today…
Most lack common sense, the right training, the dedication for caring, the thirst to know, the desire in caring people get well!
~
Doctors take an oath to 1st do no harm then to prevent disease where they can… The oath has been changed three times over the years, seems to their benefit… But 1st do no harm is still listed!
~
Doctors: (most doctors)
~ not being properly tested on the human body functioning as a whole…
~ not completing their internships…
~ not treating the cause just caring to treat symptoms… (new symptom = another drug, etc…)
~ not looking outside the listed treatments for new and alternative ways…
~
Drug companies know there will be more over medication, misdiagnosed, not diagnosed and malpractice going on due to doctors not completing their internships cause of demand today!
~ Malpractice attorneys are real busy and winning today!
~ Those firms are seeking physicians and physician assistants to be expert witnesses, etc… (Current and retired)
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT!
~
All your symptoms count… your medical history counts! Having a doctor that knows and actually cares are crucial in getting a proper diagnosis… “YOU” have the right to a second opinion! Your insurance should cover this for you…
~
Many doctors today are not considering all your symptoms!
~ Write your symptoms down…
~ Keep track of when they start, how long, what happens, what triggered them, etc…
~ RESEARCH your symptoms online… Sites, blogs, forums, research documents, etc…
~ Educate yourself on your medical issue(s) and condition(s)…

Enteropathy Mimics Celiac

Posted in CELIAC DISEASE tagged , , , , , at 7:07 pm by PCOSLady

Bovine Beta Casein Enteropathy
~
PCOS Lady:
Everyone this is important to know… The “key” is if you do not feel better after being treated for Celiac it may be Enteropathy… A misdiagnosed condition!

Casein Intollerance Question
~
1 poster: Do any of you know if casein intolerance can cause villous atrophy??

Yes, it definitely can, though most GI specialists are not likely to be aware of this. This is also one of the reasons why most celiacs never return to normal colonic mucosal histoligy, (IOW, they continue to show villus atrophy, on biopsies), despite rigidly following a GF diet, because they continue to ingest dairy products.

Quote:
Cow dairy can cause an enteropathy similar to celiac disease. It is called Bovine Beta Casein Enteropathy. It acts like celiac disease, causing inflammation leading to villous blunting. The milk protein elicits the antibody reaction just like gluten does in celiac disease.

The following is a quote from a long article about this issue from the website of John B. Symes, D.V.M. (aka Dogtor J ). Dr. Symes is a veterinarian, but he has done more research about food-related sensitivities, and he is far more knowledgeable about them, then more than 99% of the human GI specialists in the world.

Quote:
Here is the important thing. The other “foods’ that coat (and subsequently damage) the intestinal villi…and the only ones that do this along with casein…are gluten, soy, and corn. These are the big four or the “four horsemen of the apocalypse” as I now like to call them. And it is man and animals against casein, gluten, soy, and corn as the title implies. The strongest evidence of their potential harm is found in the fact that all of these food elements are used to make adhesives…powerful adhesives. Casein, gluten and soy are the strongest, stickiest, and most powerfully antigenic glycoproteins while corn is a slightly less powerful but nonetheless very significant player (especially the corn that we have recently created). They put cars together with the super-glues manufactured from soy protein. They make waterproof industrial adhesives from casein and gluten that are used for numerous purposes ranging from the glue on stamps and envelopes to putting metal together. But, the “best” they can do with corn glues is to put cardboard boxes together. So, we see why the FDA and veterinary lists of food allergens are what they are: in order, the (primary) food allergens are cow’s milk, wheat, soy, and corn.
