REALLY tough question..
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Rhonda,

This is a REALLY REALLY tough question because it's very much a 'chicken or the egg' question. Which came first?

Did the Celiac contribute to inflammation in his gut that allowed him to get infected with H pylori?


Did the H pylori (or the Shigella) 'trigger' a latent Celiac Disease that might not have shown up until much later or not at all?

So, these are certainly possibilities.

HOWEVER, Celiac Disease is a genetic problem that does not ever 'go away'.

BUT, it is possible to decrease sensitivity to gluten by eliminating inflammation- and infections.

While this question is a bit 'immaterial' until you know for sure whether he has H Pylori or not, it IS possible that getting rid of his H pylori- as well as doing a lot of other things to decrease inflammation, COULD make him less sensitive over time.

So, I hope this answers your question. Let me know what his test results show. I'm curious. And whether or not he's H pylori positive or not, let me know if you are interested in learning to decrease his sensitivity.

And by the way, assuming that you are his biological parents, one of you passed along your genes for Celiac to him and YOU are at VERY high risk for having Celiac too- and it's almost certain that you could have Latent Celiac disease that could be 'triggered' under a lot of stress. So, if you have any health problems too, then guess what YOU have as well!!

3 x gluten free
by: Anonymous

Myself 40 my daughter 22 and my son 8 all got severe gastro about 4 years ago. For about a year after that we all suffered numerous infections and have suddenly all become gluten intolerant to the point where if my daughter and i eat gluten over and above the painful gut headaches and fever also experience blood in our stool. My son develops an instant snotty green nose cough headache and stomach pain. Since then Ive recently been diagnosed with having severe inflammation in the intestine apparently caused by hpylori. I'm on second day of of triple h therapy and feeling awful. My question is will the treatment of the hpylori correct the gluten intolerance or whatever. We've done fodmap as well and all reintroduction went fine except gluten. It's so difficult to understand how we can go from not having any affects to suddenly experience severe effects.

Kerri's note: It just depends. These types of infections can be triggers for genetic issues as well, so did you test for Celiac?

Also, did you test the kids for both celiac and for H pylori?

I was diagnosed with ibs in 2007,in 2018 I found out I have small thyroid antibodies(hashimotos),after that I found out I had h pylori even after treatment gluten is still a no no for me. But I have less food intolerances since I treated the h I can say for me it was the main culprit,even contributed to my vitamin I would suggest your son remain gluten free..
