Can Celiac Disease Cause Nose Bleeds
Is it gastroenteritis, cdiff, or celiac disease when diarrhea is accompanied w/low grade temp, head/bodyaches, egg smell and yellowish/greenish stool?
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
Yes: If you mean abdominal symptoms and diarrhea then the answer is "yes.". ...Read more
Not likely: Celiacs occurs because of an allergic reaction to gluten. This reaction destroys the cells in your small intestine that absorb nutrients from your food. Ibs occurs when your digestive tract is not moving food along the way it should, giving you diarrhea, constipation or both. Celiacs may seem like ibs because they have similar symptoms. But one does not cause the other. ...Read more
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
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
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
Not at all: In CD your body makes antibodies that attack the gut tissue. These antibodies do attack the thyroid & do not cause goiter. The fact that you have CD makes you more prone to quirks in your immune system such as an immune attack on your thyroid gland. People should never self label as CD, but have the tests done and medical follow up because of the added risk of other autoimmune diseases or cancer. ...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
Possibly: I have seen many patients with celiac disease that have inflammation in other parts of their upper GI tract (i.e. esophagus or stomach). The key would be to start by going gluten free and see if symptoms resolve. If they do not, your doctor may consider another endoscopy to see how your stomach is doing. ...Read more
