I have celiac disease. What are some suggestions on what to eat when I get glutened?

Bowel rest: There is nothing to treat a celiac attack when you have been exposed to gluten. It can be painful and uncomfortable. I have not seen anything specifically recommended, but from personal experience I eat dry gluten free toast and tea for several days and hug my heating pad to my abdomen. Sometimes have a little ensure so I don't lose too much weight. ...Read more

I'm not 100% sure I have celiac disease but I was just wondering if you have it is it ok to eat a mcchicken sandwich without the bun with the fries?

I'm not 100% sure I have celiac disease but I was just wondering if you have it is it ok to eat a mcchicken sandwich without the bun with the fries?

You decide: If you have CD, every time you consume a gluten product like a flour based sandwich, your body makes new antibodies that attack and injure your gut tissue. The injury is patchwork, like a quilt. When the bad patches get to widespread your symptoms get much worse and problems continue. Only stopping gluten lets your body heal. You need to finish finding out if you have it. If not, no need to avoid gluten ...Read more

I got diagnosed for celiac disease but my test came out false negative. My primary dr said I have it. I didn't eat gluten for 6months when I took this

False tests: You need to be consuming gluten for at least 3-4 weeks prior to the confirmatory biopsy to have the intestine changes on exam. It can be as little as a slice of bread/day, but the intestines can heal over your 6 mo period without & make the test worthless. If your tissue transaminase studies were positive it is worth starting over. Prepare by consuming the minimal gluten & expect more valid results ...Read more

What are good foods to eat if you have celiac disease please!?

What are good foods to eat if you have celiac disease please!?

Anything but gluten: In celiac disease, antibodies to gluten destroy the lining of the small intestine. However, unless you have developed malabsoroption, you can eat any food that does not contain gluten. Safe grains are rice and corn. Most supermarkets now have gluten-=free sections. Also, see the following web site:celiac. Org; www. Celiaccentral. Org/; www. Csaceliacs. Info. Also, see a gastro-enterologist. ...Read more

If a child that has celiac disease and the other child doesn't have, eat from the same spoon, will the child without that disease will catch it?

If a child that has celiac disease and the other child doesn't have, eat from the same spoon, will the child without that disease will catch it?

No!: Celiac disease is not an infectious disease that you can "catch" from somebody such as a cold. Your child may have a celiac sensitivity, not the disease. They have a problem with Gliadin, a protein common in wheat. You live in Calgary. They have a great Children's Hospital. Make sure that your child really has it. It is overdiagnosed. ...Read more

I cough every time I eat bread or crackers chips ect. I have UC and just turned 40. Could I have Celiac disease?

I cough every time I eat bread or crackers chips ect. I have UC and just turned 40. Could I have Celiac disease?

Possible: Coughing as an allergic reaction to gluten is a rare but reported symptom. So, yes you can possibly have Celiac disease, but it needs a total work-up to be a confirmed diagnosis. I'm unable to guess confidently about what UC means, but if it is uterine cancer - your healthcare ought to be carefully coordinated. Don't self-Dx or make major changes w/o advice and consent from the team. Best wishes! ...Read more

Is it possible to have celiac disease if you have positive biopsy yet negative DQ2/DQ8? I have fasciculations and they stop when I don't eat gluten.

Yes: Biopsy is the gold standard and your history is totally compatible with gluten intolerance. If gluten bothers you, you need to avoid it regardless of the test results. The above are just genetic markers and many people with these markets do not have gluten intolerance at all. ...Read more

I have celiac disease, every time I eat even if it's gluten free food or drink a beverage I get really bloated. Something more than celiac?

Complex issue: Sometimes gluten sensitive people also have food sensitivities to other proteins. Cow milk, egg, corn, chocolate are a few that bother one patient I follow. There are also food additives, especially red #40, that can cause digestive issues. Your doc may be able to check you for other food sensitivities. You may also want to visit a clinical dietitian to get an idea how to work with this. ...Read more

A 1/2 hour after I eat a hamburger & fries, I had diarrhea. Has few other Xs w/ certain, Products, bread or pasta could I have celiac disease?

Maybe: Celiac disease is possible, so is gall bladder disease and bacterial overgrowth of the intestine (esp if you've been on long term oral antibiotics for acne or long term meds like Prilosec). Irritable bowel syndrome also seems to be aggravated by certain types of carbohydrates so it can mimic celiac disease. See your doc. Get it checked out ...Read more

I have celiac disease. Eat 100% gluten free, still get diarrhea. I take 12-30 imodium (loperamide) to stop it. Is this okay?

I have celiac disease. Eat 100% gluten free, still get diarrhea. I take 12-30 imodium (loperamide) to stop it. Is this okay?

Talk to your Dr: 1) Your doctor can check antibody levels as a surrogate to celiac disease activity. If they are up you may be eating gluten in hidden items (for example if something is fried in oil that also fired wheat containing food).

2) Another consideration is small bacterial overgrowth. Talk to your doctor to see if this fits.

3) Alternatively you may be in the rare group who are refractory to the diet. ...Read more

When I have a bowel movement I see a sticky substance stuck to the bowl, it looks like fat. Could I celiac disease? I cannot eat gluten.

May be: You apparently have problems with constipation, because you are on lactulose and linzess, both of which can cause diarrhea. You don't mention why you don'[t tolerate gluten. First step, see a gastro-eneterologist and be evaluated for celiac. ...Read more

I have alopecia and celiac disease. Is it likely that my hair will come back if I cut gluten out of my diet and eat mostly meat, veggies, and fruit?

Possibly: Alopecia and Celiac and two autoimmune diseases. Avoidance of gluten is essential with celiac because ingestion of gluten will increase your risk for gastric cancers. Although unlikely, it is possible that once your immune systems calms with avoidance of gluten your alopecia will improve ...Read more

42, no food allergies, but, I am scared to eat peanuts or fish. Does my celiac disease and my chronic urticaria increase my allergy chances to these?

No: No relative risk of peanut or fish allergy in this context. If you eat fish and peanuts without history of immediate reaction, then your risk is very low. If you strictly avoid these foods, then an Allergist can perform testing to begin to quantify risk and this can be followed by supervised food trials to confirm absence of allergy. ...Read more

Celiac disease. My doctor put me eat bread with gluten and took blood sample. Two days fatigue, no sleep. Celiac rash. This is wrong! What can I do?

It IS wrong: Unfortunately, insurance companies won't pay benefits unless the blood work is positive, and it will usually not be positive if you are already under treatment. So celiac patients are forced to become sick once again. The US health care system is horribly dysfunctional. I'm sorry this happened, but your physician is as trapped in it as you are. ...Read more

Same way: Migraine can be treated with several approaches dependent on the severity, frequency, and triggers. There is no link between celiac disease and migraine however. If ibuprofen does not help your migraine, talk to your doctor to see what else can be used. For example, the triptan class of drug often works well on migraines. ...Read more

Do people with celiac disease have to worry about airborne gluten?

Do people with celiac disease have to worry about airborne gluten?

Worry just a little: Gluten, a protein present in wheat, barley, or rye, could be airborne in a bakery or grain-processing factory. It is possible, but unlikely, that a person very sensitive to gluten could swallow enough airborne gluten (by way of nasal mucus, throat mucus, or lung mucus) to get celiac disease symptoms. Just the aroma of bread baking should not cause symptoms, though. ...Read more
