Diagnosed with eosinophils and celiac. What could be the reason ?

Im a 20 yr. old female thats 5 4 & 135 pounds. I have asthma , when i was younger i had tubes put in a few times, tonsules taken out, adnoids taken out, & pneumonia once.

Hi Kaylin
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Eosinophilia is in few cases a sign of allergy or a disease by itself.In your situation it could be due to the underlying allergic conditions .If it is primary eosinophilia with no underlying cause , it can be treated with steroids.

I advise you to take medications for other conditions regularly and get it checked after 2 months time.

Take care.

my son has really foul smelling stools. What could be the issue besides possibly lactose intolerance & celiac disease? He is 7 years old. He had a upper GI endoscopy done a few years ago and at that time he was diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis and they also mentioned that he had lower than average lactase levels. His dairy intake is not excessive. He has a glass of milk in the morning or afternoon and occasionally pizza. I m concerned because although he has no other symptoms such as stomach discomfort or gas or bloating, his stools are really malodorous to the point where we have to have him change his underwear and shorts often for no other apparent reason. Please advise. Thank you!

Recently my 4 yr old granddaughter was diagnosed with celiac disease. I ve been reading about celiac disease and the more I read...I began to wonder if a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis (in 1960) could actually have been celiac disease. My husband had a sister who died at 4 yrs old from CF. I know Celiac is hereditary and the symptoms could be for many things. Celiac was not really known in the 60 s, was it?

my husband has been diagnose with having celiac sprue, through endoscopy. He was also diagnose with duodenal erosion and duodena stricture. I have him on a gluten free/diabetic diet, but am unable to stop the pain. I have tramadol 50 g tablets and Mylanta and this helps for only few hours. Is there anymore that I can do for the pain. He is 82 with heart problems also--

same thing happened to me. i lost my nuvaring (not sure what day) but i inserted ring the 19th and lost it sometime before 22-31? and had unprotected sex on the 29th. i also had light spotting the 18th while the ring was still in right after sex. I have never had spotting before but my breast are sore but i think could be bc the ring had fallen out. Will i still get my period most likely this week if the ring is not in? I have been pregnant before but have celiac disease so the chances could be real low anyways. just reading the comments and thought id ask :) if you have any questions let me know thanks everyone!
