Celiac Disease Protein Deficiency
Not really but: Celiac disease causes malabsorption and can cause vit deficiency and that will produce symptoms and signs of the vit B12 deficiency in untreated patients. These are two different conditions with different cause and there is nothing in common as celiac disease can cause in some cases vit B12 deficiency if not treated with gluten free diet. B12 deficiency causes anemia and neurological disorders.
Not similar!: These diseases can coexist, but their symptoms are not similar!

My daughter has been diagnosed with celiac disease and is extremely underweight. Should I have her blood tested for vitamin deficiency?
See a nutritionist: While blood testing for nutrient deficiency is important, routine testing doesn't cover what she might need. See a good nutritionist who works with functional medicine, or one who is familiar with the specific carbohydrate diet (scd). This diet was developed for people with celiac disease. Look at the book, breaking the vicious cycle, by elaine gottschall, which describes the diet.See 1 more doctor answer
Zoey has been diagnosed with wheat, nut and egg allergy. We have cut gluten, eggs and all nuts out of her diet. Now she is always hungry and pale. She eats fruit and protein and gluten free products. Could this be celiac disease? Help please
Test/ dietitian: Celiac differs some from wheat allergy by creating antibodies that attack the intestines as if they were a virus. These can be found on blood tests. Celiac is then confirmed through added tests for intestinal injury. Either way you may also need to sit down with a clinical dietitian to make sure she receives balanced nutrition in spite of your exclusions.

Pretty common: Gluten-sensitive enteropathy (celiac disease) is much less common than gluten intolerance. Like lactose intolerance, caffeine intolerance, sorbitol intolerance (with regard to needing to restrict each respective substance), people who are gluten intolerant do better to avoid gluten-containing foods. Only about 10% of the population are gluten intolerant--an inflammatory condition of small bowel.
Gluten Free diet: The treatment for celiac disease is to avoid all foods containing gluten. Gluten is most commonly found in barley, wheat and rye grains. You must be a very careful label reader and check for these items in the ingredients list. There are many more gluten free options available in the supermarkets now. If you have been diagnosed with celiac this is a lifelong diet plan.
Read labels: This requires that you go on a gluten free diet. Gluten is found primarily in wheat, barley and rye, so any product with these is out. There are a number of sources on the web, including the Mayo clinic, that provide guidance. Just search for "gluten free diet".The FDA requires that vendors list any of the top 8 food allergens on packages, so start looking. Some even have a GF seal.See 1 more doctor answer
