Auto Immune Disease - Gluten - Eosonophill

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi All, I had vasculities haemmarge in my right eye and hence I was treated for steroids. My inflmaation in right eye is fine now. But eosonopil count is high and Im on Montek LC for 3 months. Recently I heard and read about Gluten which is major root cause for Auto Immune disease. I dont know where I caught this disease and I have no bad habits. I have done tests for TB, Bechets and all oter tests and all were negative

My question is- Is Gluten the culprit for the inflammation in the eye?

If so how can I confirm this. Also one more issue is I have come for job to UK from India and in UK I dono how to explain doctors from the beginning.

    Hi. I have a form of vasculitis...Behcet's disease. I am told constantly be specialists the following things. Vasculitis is not related to a lifestyle choice. You are born with a defective gene. I personally was sick since I was a baby.

    I am also told diet has no effect on vasculitis. It can help you to feel better but neither causes nor cures it.

    I think that you need to see a good soecialist. I am not sure where in the uk you are but there is a free helpline you can call with very good advice and information. They are called Vasculitis UK and it might help you to speak to them. I will post the number for you.

      Thanks Margaret. I did several tests to find root cause. I had eye doctor to look after my retina n specialist to look after my body which could bring down inflammation. Now I don't have kn UK. I've registered with NHS n asked them can I see retina specialist, but they said I will have to go through general physician first n then they will refer me. Please post no k will try to contact them

      Hi. Vasculitis UK are on 0300 365 0075 you do have to register with a doctor to be referred to a specialist but you can do that in half an hour. Choose a lical surgery go along with id and fill in the paperwork.

      In the meantime if anything happens with your eyes and you are worried you can go to a+e. If you are in London Moirfields eye hospital are great for this kind of problem and have an emergency department.

      I am not an expert but think that high eosophinal count is iften associated with Churg Strauss syndrome.
