A 26-year-old male asked:

can anal fissures/unsettled stomach/vaginal yeast infections be related to a gluten intolerance/celiac disease?

Yes: These symptoms can be associated with celiac disease, but not necessarily. There are simple blood tests that can help rule it out, see your physician.

Gluten intolerance: Not sure if it is your case or not but there are claims out there that gluten intolerance presents any way it wants. Classical symptoms are weight loss, diarrhea, symptoms of anemia (iron deficiency) in advanced cases, abdominal discomfort, bloating. Other than unsettled stomach, the other ones you mentioned didn't fit that presentation, but you can recur to a blood test that should tell.

Yes: It is not uncommon for patient's who have celiac disease to also have concurrent microbial imbalances in the gut, like yeast overgrowth, bacterial dysbiosis, or parasite infection. To find out what is going on, i suggest seeing a functional medicine doctor and asking for a test called the comprehensive digestive stool analysis. http://doccarnahan.blogspot.com/2013/01/healthy-gut-healthy-you.html.
