Re: H. Pylori? Celiac Disease? Something else?

Celiac has been associated with other autoimmune disorders but not psoriasis. (At least not statistically, doesn't mean you can't have psoriasis and celiac) When autoimmune diseases tend to occur together they're called "clusters". In the celiac cluster there's juvenile arthritis, type 1 diabetes, sjogren's syndrome, autoimmune hypo/hyper thyroid and vitiligo.
My husband is diabetic and was recently diagnosed with "slow stomach" disorder, his stomach does not empty like it use to. He feels blotted right away. They placed him on Reglan 5 mg after each meal. Just today I wrote to his doctor to see if they have another medicine or can increase the dosage. He has had H.pylori too, six months ago, we think we got rid of it, but we will not know until we complete the lab work that due now. You have to do lab work 6 months after the treatment. I would be aggressive and over exaggerate your symptoms so you can be seen by a specialist. I hope my blurp helped.
