Celiac and High Liver Enzymes

A woman asked about any relationship to her celiac disease and her fatty liver infiltration as well as low blood platelets. Here are some references to read about this as well as some advice worth looking into if this is a concern of yours.

A big cause of fatty liver is thought to be fructose http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18395287

Soft drinks have been looked at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19765850

CD can cause elevated liver enzymes and liver disease http://jccglutenfree.googlepages.com/liverdisease2

One lady wrote in and shared all this: I can tell you that two celiac friends of mine had low platelets and they both improved with taking vitamin K, the natural one not the synthetic one, 1 capsule a day (I think it is 100 MICROgrams). Within a few months their blood tests came back up. Possibly try the vitamin K but not if you have a clotting disorder. It is only the MDR dose anyway you would get in a multiple vitamin and is going to be a lot safer than some chemo drug.

I’m pretty sure I read that fatty liver is a deficiency problem, something like inositol. You aren’t going to get this info from an MD, you’ll have to go search on the net or look in some really good nutrition/alternative
medicine books.

I’m not sure if you know this, but low platelets  can be called”idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura” or “immune” t.p. Google will bring lots of info, some of it old. I think the immune name is newer, because I think they now think it’s an autoimmune disease.

Hope this helps! Tina Turbin
