Elevated Bilirubin Celiac Disease
If I have an elevated transglutaminase iga, hypothyroidism, and a mother with celiac disease. Is the likelihood that I have celiac disease.?
Bilirubin is the potentially toxic product of heme metabolism. It is formed by breakdown of heme present in hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, catalase, peroxidase and tryptophan pyrrolase. Eighty percent of the daily bilirubin production comes from hemoglobin. It requires conversion to a water-soluble form before elimination from the body by ...Read more
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

Genetics; eat gluten: Celiac disease (gluten allergy) occurs in a person who may have a genetic tendency to react abnormally to gluten (a protein in wheat, barley, and rye). Something causes his immune system to over-react to gluten. Later, when he eats foods containing gluten, his immune system reacts with the intestine that is digesting the gluten, and causes intestinal damage, abnormal digestion, plus malabsorption. ...Read more
No wheat rye barley:
You can eat meat, chicken, turkey, fish, nuts, fruits and vegetables, grains including rice, and corn. Potato and sweet potato.
Avoid any wheat, rye, or barley products or products derived from them. This means avoiding products that contain gluten- the product in wheat rye and barley that causes the body to react adversely in celiac. ...Read more
Any age: Alrhough celiac disease can reveal itself when very young with a 'classic group' of symptoms, there are many older adults with celiac disase thar is diagnosed only after a thorough 'workup' of iron deficiency anemia - that may simply have presented as gradual fatigue - erroneously attributed to 'old age' by the patient - and sometimes others too :(. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Celiac Disease: Celiac disease (cd) may have a higher prevalence in females but sex-linked genetic transmission has not been determined. The immune response genes are autosomal and there has been some linkage with certain genetic alleles hla-dq2 & dq8. If you do not have these alleles you will probably not get cd, but not everyone with these immune responce genes has cd. 30% of caucasions have dq2. ...Read more
As needed: Using your dominant language works well. You do not need to broadcast the issue in most settings. Your close circle of friends can simply be told you have a food allergy & cannot tolerate gluten/wheat. It is unrealistic to expect them to remove all gluten containing material from social settings, too hard. If they question more, educate them, otherwise keep it simple. ...Read more
Possible: During colonoscopy, quite a number of physicians reach the terminal ileum, the last part of the small intestine. Celiac disease affects this part of the small intestine, so the physician can see the changes in the lining of the gut and confirm the diagnosis with biopsies taken from that area. ...Read more
Celiac Disease: First described by Samuel Gee in 1888 in a report entitled "On the Coeliac Affection." Common features include villous atrophy; malabsorption (steatorrhea, weight loss, or other signs of nutrient or vitamin deficiency); and resolution of the mucosal lesions and symptoms upon withdrawal of gluten-containing foods, usually within a few weeks to months. ...Read more
Celiac is hereditary: The celiac disease genes hla-dq2 or hla-dq8 are hereditary and are in almost all celiac patients. The genetics of the remaining small fraction of patients has not been figured out yet. Two parents could each have only one dq2 or dq8 gene, and have very mild symptoms, but their child could have inherited both the dq2 and dq8 from his parents. The child then gets a full-blown case of celiac disease. ...Read more

Celiac disease: Also called gluten intolerance or gluten-sensitive enteropathy is a disease in which the villi of the small intertines are damaged by an abnormal immune response to a grain protein (gluten) present in wheat, rye, barley and oats. Damage to villi results in malabsorbtion of nutrients and result in belly pain, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, wgt. Loss, poor growth, dermatitis herpetiformis & more. ...Read more
Celiac disease: Celiac is an autoimmune condition in which your body makes antibodies against the small intestine; it causes malabsorption of food and often chronic diarrhea, anemia, or occasionally abnormal liver function. The treatment is simply to avoid gluten in foods, but this is not a simple diet to follow. ...Read more
