Does Celiac Disease Cause Low Wbc
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

The condition starts with damage the the microvilli that line the gut and eventually ends with total villous atrophy. ...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
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
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
