In Part 1 I mentioned many of the GI issues diseases I think this might help and have seen it help.
But most people only think of an “official diagnosis” and not co-morbidities in the same person.
Treating your Vitamin deficiency lets you treat your co-morbidities.
It is known as a 2ndary diagnosis in Sjorgen’s diesease as Pellagra has also been diagnosed
Despite the conditions responding to Niacin(amide) — Pellagra was still considered the 2ndary disease.
This is more common than people realize often.
You hear often “you” the average person doesn’t need to take a Vitamin but if you are reading
this blog you are not average. People with Celiac disease and other GI problems are known to be
low in a range of Vitamins.
See this link for appropriate supplementation with a celiac diagnosis.
Niacin(amide) was not mentioned in this study but should be added/studied since
B-Vitamins are known to help Celiac’s.
At 58% co-morbidity of Pellagra in Celiac’s there is better than 50/50 chance your symptom’s
can be in remission in 6 months? If you are ONE of the many Pellagrins being diagnosed as Celiac disease today.
Gluten free works actually summarizes this topic well.
But still people are afraid to take a water soluble Vitamin that is known to help digestion problems.
Are you Afraid of a Vitamin? You needn’t bee! Praise bee to God!
I must always say *** This is not medical advice and should not be considered such. Results may vary.
Always consult your doctor before making any changes to your medical regimen but it helped me.
And I think it can help you too and why I share for “Sharing is Caring”.
2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included.
Posterboy by the Grace of God,
*****Addendum I mean this to be some kind of “Opus”. My story! Yours might be different.
Now the onus is on you to try?
What you can do is urge your doctor to have you tested for Pellagra (though I doubt very seriously
you will test low). See this posterboy blog post that explains the difference in Primary and 2ndary Pellagra.
Anyone who eats a protein rich diet will not test low enough to be diagnosed as a Pellagrin
at least in the Western world.
You have bee near death, an alcoholic or homeless to be diagnosed as a Pellagrin today or
maybe an alcoholic homeless fellow who has severe Psorsias. . . might test positive for Pellagra
if they knew to test for it.
And why it usually shows up in war torn areas today because protein is limited in war. (and Alcoholics)
as seen in this House MD episode on Celiacs called Forever because Alcoholics have poor diets and
thus low in protein in their diets.
What needs to be done to change this oft over looked fact is a study with Niacin to see if it helps Celiac’s.
See here where other B-Vitamins were shown to help Celiac’s.
this study was only as to how it (B-Vitamin supplementation) effects homeocysteine levels in people
diagnosed with Celiac disease.
Not if taking a B-complex or specifically the Niacinamide version of Niacin could help treat or
alleviate gluten antibodies in Celiacs with cross contamination.
A double blind study would have to be done but could be effectively tested with some time and effort.
This is only antidotal information with no confirmed medical research unless someone else takes the
ball and runs with it.
Plumbago you come to mind. But it doesn’t matter who it is.
The time has come to test this hypothesis to see if it is a “working theory”. I only know it helped me
and helps other I give the Vitamin B-3 as Niacinamide to . . . up to and including people who have
had an official NCGS diagnosis. Which tells’ me it would help other Celiac’s too if they would try it
(Niaciamide) 3/day for 6 months.
Note: No Follow up is done at two years to see if they are in remission after cross contamination
or if they have adhered strictly to a gluten free diet. But their clinical outcomes (symptom relief) appear
to greatly improve at 6 months including re-introducing problem foods such as dairy which they now
tolerate without GI distress.
I have tried to be a witness to what I have experienced.
(I speak as a man) that no other person Pellagin being diagnosed as Celiac disease instead would be
in the dark about this fact.
Romans 10:13-15 King James Version (KJV)
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him
of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them
that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
When you get the right/correct diagnosis (if Pellagra is correct/parent diagnosis) it’s unruly child
Celiac will get better.
See this posterboy celiac.com blog post.
I only know it is a devastating delay. To ignore one disease at the expense of the other.
quoting the celiac posterboy again
“A differential diagnosis is one of the best standard of medicine rarely practiced today and how
specialists decide between competing diseases like UC or Chron’s or IBS or Celiac Disease and
if I am right Co-Morbid Pellagra now forgotten for 75+ years since the “War on Pellagra” is now over
according to medical professionals’ but sadly the battle rages on for at least for the potential
3 Million American’s who are now being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead.”
AS someone who has had BOTH Celiac and Pellagra. I can tell you that it can be difficult to tell them
apart sometimes (most times).
What we fail to understand often with any diagnosis there is continuum of disease/symptoms.
Yet we think of them as separate diseases Right?
I have unwittingly become the Celiac and Pellagra Posterboy .
Learn from my mistakes!
I have made too many (mistakes) to count.
Take as much honey (knowledge) as you can from my mistakes so bad (lack of knowledge) health
will not sting your quality of life.
So let’s say. Today they find a miraculous cure for Celiac disease or NCGS. . . it would take on average
17 years for doctor’s in Clinical settings to apply these technique’s to eradicate new Celiac
cases/diagnosis’s from occurring.
Now in this hypothetical case (which doesn’t exist yet or does IT? As a differential diagnosis
the answer is a definite YES) it would take another 17 years on average for doctors if they knew
today that Pellagra (which they don’t) can mimic Celiac disease in a Clinical setting.
But one does exist (it is not hypothetical) – a cure for Pellagra exists today. It has in fact existed
for 100+ years and still doctors don’t recognize it today.
I share/write these posterboy blog post’s so that others might not have to suffer the same things’
I have again in the future someday. . . I pray soon!
Now that you have the knowledge of my experience what will you do with it?
Every hour/patient/person matters.
And why I have tried diligently to educate other Celiac’s of this maddening fact.
All those who have ears to hear may they listen!
Feel free to read all my posterboy blog post’s if this pique’s your curiosity/interest but there
is only so much in a/one blog post than can be explained but it really Is not necessary
or visit the website/blog in my profile where I have told the same story hundreds of time that
ONE fellow sufferer like myself may/might be helped by the same wisdom, I found God being my help,
when I learned Pellagra and Celiac disease are Siamese twins and separating one
(supplementing one to death) will kill the other (cause the other to go into remission).
And I believe you can too! Praise bee to God!
2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4
3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies,
and the God of all comfort;
4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (fellow sufferer)
which are in any trouble,
by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”
Posterboy by the Grace of God,
A simple self-test is to prove this works for you and your friends.
It is to take Niacin as NIACINAMIDE usually one 300 count bottle is enough for a 3month supply.
I call it the NIACINAMIDE CHALLENGE.
You and a friend/family member begin taking it at the same rate.
Whatever that rate is – is fine.
But it needs to be at the same rate – consistently.
2/day or 3/day works (i.e., with each meal) works for most people.
If so two things will happen for you/them (if Pellagra is indeed Co-Morbid presenting
as Celiac Disease) then you/they will begin BURPING for the first time in years and years
(if at all) and their stool will begin to SINK to the bottom of the bowl.
***Not twenty minutes after eating something with bloating or burping with carbonation/soda
or beer etc. but BURPING 2 hours after a meal without the bloating you used to have.
It will start slowly and then be your new normal. The burping within a month of each other
will match up with your stool beginning to SINK where it did not before (or it did for me).
A witness of two is “true”.
Usually it takes 3 to 4 months taking the Niacinamide 1/day to notice these results
Usually it takes 2 to 3 months taking the Niacinamide 2/day to notice these results
Usually it takes 6 weeks to 2 months taking the Niacinamide 3/day to notice these results
If these are your results then together ya’ll have completed a self-test to confirm Pellagra was
causing your GI problems.
If it is the Vitamin making the difference your GI symptoms’ will improve. It is as simple as that.
I would recommend a 6 months regimen for most people. Two 300 count bottles equal
$50 Dollars worth of a B-Vitamin.
As I called this an open a letter to the many GI sufferers etc.
It doesn’t matter what part phase (spectrum) of the disease you are in it will (should) get better.
GERD, IBS, UC, NCGS or even Celiac disease if (low Niacin(amide) was the cause) you will have a
cause and effect reaction.
If you had Pellagra Co-Morbid and your GI improves with supplementation.
This almost always works if you are not now taking PPI’s like Nexium or Prilosec etc. . . .
If you are taking PPI’s then your “Way Back” may be a little longer but the trip back is the same.
****Again this is not medical advice but it is too cheap not to try and see if it works for you . . .
I have found it work for others.
****Note: I am only reporting what medical journals have concluded. It is just not well understood
today one disease is being diagnosed as the other because it can take a generation for this knowledge
to filter down to the clinical level.
Again a “Witness of Two” – you Both having the same reaction to the Vitamin proves Pellagra
was causing your symptom’s and the doctor’s don’t recognize it today in a Clinical setting.
The Journal of Psychosomatics says its well and I can’t say it better.

But I am your witness people, have and do get better using this technique realizing a mistake
has been made in your/their diagnosis. It is the time honored medical
“Second Opinion” AKA a Differential Diagnosis.
Isn’t it about time to see if supplementing with Niacinamide will help your co-morbid Pellagra
symptom’s to see if your Celiac disease diagnosis was arrived at in error – no matter well intended
has keep you from getting better from Pellagra.
Quoting an old friend J. Dan Gill when he talks about the power of Truth to Free us!
Where/when he (Dan) talks about the difference between Truth and Error.
“The Truth is Always Better
The Truth, whatever it is,
Is always better than error,
The truth is when an error/mistake is made. Admit it and move on to the correct/better
diagnosis so you can then get better!
And we have known how to treat Pellagra for a 100+ years but this generation having not
seen it in their lifetimes have forgot how to diagnose it! When they see it in its earliest forms. ..
they do not recognize it in a clinical setting anymore!
Those that have ears to hear? Listen! You can get better from Co-morbid Pellagra.
SADLY! Few listen. But some (Celiac’s) have heard (listened to) the good news that
Pellagra is reversible and have gotten better. Don’t be the Last!
****Again this is not medical advice but it is too easy, simple and cheap not too try
and see if it works for you too!. . . I have found it works for others. . . not already taking a
Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPIs) like Nexium or Prilosec etc . . .
Praise bee to God! To those who have listened and got better!
Just trying to help those still suffering (I believe) unnecessarily.
