Unusual Celiac Disease Symptoms
Usually diarrhea: Celiac disease, among its many manifestations, may result in diarrhea. Simplistically, exposure of intestine to gluten causes inflammation of affected gut lining, with a decrease in absorptive surface of that gut, & resulting malabsorption of food. The best & most enduring fix is to avoid eating gluten. Serum tissue transglutaminase antibody can help determine how successfully gluten is avoided.
Celiac: This site can go into more detail, than I can in 400 letters. Also, did you know that there is a blood test to diagnose true celiac disease? http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/celiac-disease/basics/symptoms/con-20030410
Varied: The symptoms of celiac disease are quite varied. However, failure to thrive (failure to gain weight) is a common symptom in child who are diagnoses with celiac disease.

Belly aches: There are many. .. Abdominal pain, cramping, diarrhea, bloated feeling. The more subtle sign might be growth delay - not growing as quickly as other kids. Also, certain kinds of rashes are subtle signs of celiac (look-up dermatitis herpetiformis). The trigger is wheat containing foods and other products.

Time: Only time and better gluten avoidance will help.
Celiac disease: In Celiac disease the body reacts to gluten (in wheat and gluten like proteins in rye and barley) in the small intestine causing damage. This limits the intestine's ability to absorb some nutrients. Classically people have loose stool, bloating, and abdominal discomfort but more often are just found when screened for other reasons (like symptoms of a nutritional deficiency like iron or bone loss).See 1 more doctor answer
At least a month: You don't actually ever heal from celiac disease except by cutting out gluten. It is a serious problem that affects your whole body when you have it. When you cut out gluten all together, it takes at least a month to have your system come close to normal. Some studies say it may take even a year of being very careful, before you feel consistently better.See 1 more doctor answer
Fatigue, diarrhea: Growth problems -decreased appetite and failure to gain weight -chronic diarrhea, which can be bloody -chronic constipation -vomiting -abdominal bloating and pain -fatigue (often tired during day and insomnia at night) -irritability -other autoimmmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes or hashimoto's thyroiditis.
Depends: It depends on how much gluten you eat and how immediate your body responds to the gluten in the diet. If you eat a undetectable amount- the time frame may be longer than if you ingest a large amount. Some peoples immune system may also react faster or slower to the same amount. Its individual based. Please try to adhere to the diet. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Do people with celiac disease always have the symptoms? Can you have the disease and not show any symptoms?
Varies a lot: True CD will eventually show some symptoms if the person is not gluten free. These can vary from mild cramping & diarrhea to chronic abdominal pain, diarrhea & catastrophic weight loss. Some may inadvertently be living gluten free based on prior food reactions, but the difficulty in avoiding gluten leads to symptoms & diagnosis. I probably had it a decade before I figured it out.See 1 more doctor answer
