Symptoms For Teenagers
Common Symptoms for Teenagers Include:
- Delayed puberty:- Current studies detailed not only a considerably retarded menarche in untreated celiac disease affected girls as compared with girls following a gluten free diet, but also in treated celiac disease a negative effect on pregnancy, out coming in lower birth weight and delivery of a premature babies. In celiac disease there is a elevated level of auto antibodies absorbed against self-antigens, so there could be antibodies directed against hormones or organs significant for pubertal development. Likewise, in celiac disease there could be a discriminating mal-absorption of micronutrients essential for the metabolism of carrier or receptor proteins for sex hormones.
- Growth problems: – A celiac disease affected with regular intake of wheat products always show a poor development of body. Stoppage of height of celiac baby. Continuous loss of weight of the body. These are the prominent sign seen in celiac patient.
- Diarrheal: – Diarrhoea or bulky, loose (or watery), pale, frothy, and foul-smelling stools often occur in celiac disease. The stools may contain a huge amount of fat and may attach to the sides of the toilet bowl, making them hard to flush. Children and adults often have the same types of symptoms in celiac disease. But intestinal problems, such as constipation, are more likely to occur in children.
- Abdominal pain and bloating: – Due to continuous intake of wheat products the gluten enters throughout the body with the wheat, then starts to destroy muscle of small intestine. The intestine become swollen, irruptions resulting in bloated and painful abdomen.
- Weight loss: – Adults and children of celiac disease may have unexplained weight loss due to decreased appetite. Younger children may fail to gain weight and grow as expected. This is called failure to thrive.
- Fatigue: – The fatigue syndrome of allergic derivation is a common cause of irritability and abnormalities of behaviour in children. It typically results from chronic food allergy (Wheat Allergy) involving sensitivity to more than one food specially containing Gluten. Although wheat ingested in oft-repeated feedings may be the cause of such chronic symptoms, sensitivity to wheat. The schooling suffers (Wheat allergy) feel a characteristic difficulty in concentration and impairment of memory. Inclined to be irritable and fretful in their behaviour and to be maladjusted in both the home and school.
- Irritability: – If mistakenly someone eat wheat or something containing Gluten, that it changes personality and mood drastically by short time. person became very irritable and gets very annoyed over the smallest thing. Irritability is certainly common amongst Celiacs (Wheat allergy). One of the reasons may be a magnesium(Mg) deficiency. Persistently this results in excessive craving for chocolate, as it has a extraordinary amount of magnesium (Mg).
- Depression: – According to various studies, there is a possible link between brain functions and mal-absorption, which is the failure to properly absorb nutrients from food. When the intestines are damaged result of celiac disease, more essences are able to pass through the gut and into the bloodstream. It has been found that some essences have an impact on brain function badly. The risk for developing depression is 1.8 times greater probable for people with celiac disease in comparison to the common people. Adopting the gluten free diet can help improve depression symptoms for people with celiac disease. Depression can also occur in individuals after diagnosis because of the major impact on daily routine life and the challenges and strain that can come with managing a chronic situation and the gluten free diet.
- Skin symptoms— A skin problem, known as dermatitis herpetiformis, is common in adults with celiac disease. This condition is uncommon before puberty in children with celiac disease. A person may have skin symptoms with few or no gastrointestinal symptoms.
The symptoms of dermatitis herpetiformis include intensely itchy, raised, fluid-filled blistered skin, typically located on the elbows, knees, buttocks, lower back, face, neck, chest, and occasionally within the mouth.
The most troublesome symptoms are itching and burning. Scratching induces the blister to rupture and dry up, but the area remains darkened and scarring. This condition will be improve after elimination of gluten from the diet, although it may take several weeks to months see considerable improvement.
- Mouth sores: – A regular gluten diets specially wheat causes pale mouth sores, a rupture in between the skin of lips or surrounding the mouth. A variety of types sores can emerge anywhere within the mouth, as well as the inner cheeks, gums, tongue, lips or palate. Mouth sores can be a sign of a more serious medical condition, celiac disease
