Can Celiac Disease Cause High Lymphocytes
I had a biopsy of my small intestine come back with elevated lymphocytes and all the blood came back negative for celiac disease. What r other reasons?
Diffuse increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes. How likely is it celiac disease? What other tests should be done?
Too vague a question: I trust you are referring to some biopsy findings and thus need to know where the biopsy was obtained. The definitive diagnosis for celiac disease is a small intestinal biopsy. Certain blood tests such as IgA ttg is said to be over 90% sensitive in detecting gluten sensitivity provided that you are not avoiding gluten when the blood sample is obtained. ...Read more
Depends!: Elevated liver enzymes can be due to a number of different conditions. They can even be elevated temporarily for no reason, & fall to normal the next time it is checked. Are you on any meds? Do you feel bad? There isn't enough info to give you a decent answer. Give a little more history, and add any meds or other medical problems that you have in your health history and it will help us answer ...Read more
Very high B12 blood level, low iron, rt side ab pain despite very strict gfdiet for celiac disease, not on vitamins. What could cause high B12 levels?
High B12 and folate (folic acid): Levels are caused by their accumulation and non use in the body. I have seen it related to vitramin b1 deficiency. Worth trying. ...Read more
Can celiac disease cause elevated WBC levels (above 20, 000) and fever? Is a person wid high IgE level is more prone to celiac as well?
No and No: The elevated WBC calls for a serious workup by your physician -- we don't want to miss endocarditis, leukemia or any of several other troublesome, possibly treatable diseases. The ige system is barely related to the pathogensis of celiac sprue and the assay is worthless to screen for it. I'm glad you're being proactive & hope you'll get straight talk from your physician now. ...Read more
Can celiac disease/high gliadin be a possible cause of high lipase? Amylase is normal, as well as iron, CBC/CMP, saturation and the like.
Daughter diagnosed with Celiac Disease 8 weeks ago. Now has severe itching on lower legs only at night time. Low white blood count and high Globulin Serum levels. Severe weight loss, and bruising What could cause this? Itching Issues
There is a very: Characteristic skin rash that accompanies celiac disease: dermatitis herpetiformis. Typically this is a skin manifestation of non-celiac wheat sensitivity. Extremely itchy bumps or blisters appear, especially on the forearms. The lab abnormalities you describe are not typical for celiac; in fact serum globulins may be low. I suspect more than one diagnosis; continue working closely with her Doctor ...Read more
Could celiac disease cause ANA positive 1:640 spec pattern and elevated sed. Lupus neg. Serum protein normal?
No!: No it would not.Get a more detailed answer ›
Celiac disease: In Celiac disease the body reacts to gluten (in wheat and gluten like proteins in rye and barley) in the small intestine causing damage. This limits the intestine's ability to absorb some nutrients. Classically people have loose stool, bloating, and abdominal discomfort but more often are just found when screened for other reasons (like symptoms of a nutritional deficiency like iron or bone loss). ...Read more
Lots of things do: Your nausea may have little to do with the gut. Biliary ; pancreatic disease may be present. Gas/bloat syndrome? Consider "central" causes like: motion sickness, vertigo, migraine headache, brain problems (some very serious). Also, rule out infection (? Urinary tract), food poisoning, medication side effects, pregnancy, ; even stress. Yes, celiac disease may contribute, but best get checked. ...Read more
Not directly, but...: People who manage their diet to avoid gluten may risk becoming deficient in a variety of necessary nutrients. It's possible to learn how to have a varied, full range of foods, but it takes time and interest. Sun-sensitivity is a symptom of pellagra (a Niacin (vitamin b3) deficiency). It can be quite serious so eat tuna, salmon, or ground beef if you can, or snack on peanuts daily. ...Read more
It can: Many patients with celiac disease suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, depression, and irritabity. Some actually describe that they can feel decreased mental acuity when ingesting gluten and call it the "gluten fog". Interestingly enough, gluten can also be related to sleep disorders such as insomnia and restless leg syndrome. ...Read more
Giardia lamblia: Giardia lamblia, a single call protozoan (think paramecium) parasite is found in fresh water. It takes up residence in the small intestine causing symptoms mimicking celiac disease. The organism may be detected in a stool specimen. Sometimes endoscopy is necessary for diagnosis. Treatment is curative. ...Read more
Celiac disease: Inflammation is a non-specific descriptive term. Celiac disease (if not controlled via strict gluten free diet) will increase inflammatory cells along the intestinal lining. If you have biopsy-confirmed celiac disease, stay gluten-free in your diet. Unless you have other chronic gi-related conditions, a strict gluten free diet will prevent gut inflammation in celiac disease. ...Read more
Celiac disease: Celiac disease can cause a whole host of problems, and is one of the great mimics. It can cause headaches, weight loss, anemia, infertility, abdominal pain. And some patients do complain of a change in their body odor. I would ask your doctor to check your blood tests for the typical antibodies associated with celiac disease, and if you carry the diagnosis, explore possible gluten contamination ...Read more
Harms sm. Intestine: Celiac disease leads to inflammation and damage of the lining of the small intestine, which causes decreased absorption of nutrients, vitamins, iron, etc... The intestinal lining loses its microscopic "villi", which are tiny protrusions that maximize the absorptive surface area needed to absorb nutrients. A patient gets diarrhea, anemia, lactose intolerance, tummy aches, irritable bowels, etc... ...Read more
Yes: If you continue to consume gluten with a diagnosis of celiac disease, the gluten will damage the surface of the small intestine thus impairing your ability to absorb many nutrients leading to weight loss. However you need to consult your doctor to document the diagnosis since there are other conditions which can cause unexplained weight loss. ...Read more
Yes: If you mean abdominal symptoms and diarrhea then the answer is "yes.". ...Read more
I am suspecting that my child (1 year) has a celiac disease, I am far from the hospital can I get virtual diagnosis cause it has been 6 months?
Needs an eval: I find it unlikely the kid would have CD at 1 yr but it can happen. As a lifelong label with important implications (risks of other diseases) it requires a thorough basic evaluation. This would also include initial blood screening tests for tissue transglutaminase IgA & an IgA level. To be accurate the kid would need to ingest a gluten for the 3 wks prior to testing. A biopsy to confirm is standard ...Read more
Can not going on a gluten free diet when you have celiac disease cause any other health problems?
Yes: The problem is malabsorption of food and essential vitamins which can lead to many other complications (neurologic, hematologic, bone etc)and even death. The only treatment is avoidance at this time. The problem with a gluten free diet is that gluten free products often contain more sugar and fat to keep the consistency moist. ...Read more

My 12 month old is being tested for celiac disease and other allergies. Hard to tell which items cause what symptoms?
Dermatitis herpetiformis is an extremely itchy rash made of bumps and blisters. The rash is chronic, which means it continues over a long period of time.
Dermatitis herpetiformis usually begins in people age 20 and older, although children may sometimes be affected. It is seen in both men and women.
The cause is unknown. However, dermatitis herpetiformis is frequently linked to gluten sensitivity. ...Read more
My endoscopy biopsy looked exactly like something caused by Celiac disease but my blood test came back negative, what else could it be?
Can untreated Celiac disease cause Immune Reconstruction Syndrome? I have bad allergic symptoms without Montelukast. Untreated Celiac disease too.
Not known: The association of Celiac and immune reconstitution is not one I have heard of or could find doing a quick search. Montelukast is used in allergies so I think having the expected response from a medication does not suggest an immune problem. It is worth getting your Celiac under control for other reasons, i.e. to prevent the known Celiac complications. ...Read more
Genetics: If you are born with genetic mutations, hla types dq2 or dq8, this predisposes you to develop celiac disease. Then it is usually an environmental trigger, like abnormal gut microbes or infection that triggers it from being a genetic predisposition into an active condition. The condition starts with damage the the microvilli that line the gut and eventually ends with total villous atrophy. ...Read more
Rarely: If the disease creates poor absorption of nutrients and there is a significant loss of electrolytes, you can suffer from blurred vision. But this would only be likely in very extreme cases. If a patient takes steroids during any of the treatment phases, they could experience temporary blurring of vision as well. If you are experiencing blurred vision, you should see an eye doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more
