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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can Celiac Disease mimic MS even after being treated with a strict gluten-free diet? Could my untreated Celiac have caused my brain lesions?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
NO: celiac disease can be hidden- or latent- and not associated with severe disease and symptoms or malnutrition. It depends on the individual's immune system and the antibodies it produces in response to gluten. It can be quantified by testing for antibodies and by an endoscopy to look at the degree of intestines that are affected. It can be graded as minimal to severe. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Gluten in diet: By having gluten in your diet, even in hidden sources that you might not be aware of, the diarrhea would be evidence to you that you have gluten in the diet. It can be from cross contamination in restaurants, or in factors that use wheat to coat food products so they dont stick to the conveyor belt and dont list it as an ingredient in the food. It all is dose dependent and very individual. ...Read more
Not all, but many: There are several ways that the basis of the condition expresses itself and a sensitive person may experience any combination of them. Skin symptoms are not rare.

Try one to see if it helps. ...Read more
