Hey guys just a quick question. Does/could celiac disease cause low digestive enzymes production and low stomach acid? I realize these conditions could potentially cause celiac, but could celiac cause these two? Thanks guys 😁

I've not heard of low digestive enzymes production and low stomach acid causing Celiac disease??

Celiac is a genetic disorder but the age of onset varies....it's thought that it can be triggered with intestinal surgery. But not everyone with celiac has had GI tract surgery...so other 'things' must trigger it as well.

Our son had pyloric stenosis surgery...and he has Celiac (undiagnosed for 14 years)

My husband and I both tested for celiac and do not have elevated antibodies for it.

I've read it is possible for celiac disease to cause low stomach acid - if you're not adhering to the diet. it messes up your GI for sure.

I found some articles on it:

Celiac is an autoimmune disorder. If you have the gene, there is a chance you can develop it. I was diagnosed after giving birth to my third child. The only reason they found it is because my neurologist tested the antibodies separate. The regular panel will test ttg-iga and if you aren't deficient or elevated they don't test igg. My iga was 91 with >90 being deficient. My igg was positive. For three years I thought I had a neurological manifestation of celiac because I never had stomach issues and even had a negative biopsy, only issues in every other body system. Turns out it was the Lyme and Bart all along. However stopping gluten did reduce my Lyme symptoms greatly for two years. I can't even describe the magnitude of the symptom reduction by going gluten free.

I fully believe my celiac was triggered by having undiagnosed and untreated Lyme, Bart and possibly babesia for 20 years. I've read a lot of research studies about Lyme basically becoming an autoimmune issue when it's found in late stages and triggering other autoimmune disorders.

I don't know much about stomach acid and digestive enzymes. I was not told my stomach acid is low. I have trouble absorbing vitamins and nutrients though and need to take sublingual coenzemated vitamins and shots.

If you have the classic intestinal damage from celiac than your body would have difficulty making stomach acid and digestive enzymes until you heal your gut.
