      What's My First Step?
      Does anyone know where I can be tested? I have low income, and no insurance.

      What level of testing (if any) would be appropriate for me given my symptoms:

      - difficulty focusing, forgetfulness
      - headache
      - diahrea, loose stools
      - depression/fatigue
      - feeling a need for nurishment, even when full

      Also, I am thin despite eating plenty.

      I have been unable to clearly establish a link between eating wheat and my
      symptons. If there is a link, there seems to be a delay of three days to a week.
      This delay (and perhaps lack of mental clarity) makes it difficult for me to know
      whether of not I am imagining the connection. I do not have any obvious
      increase in symptoms on the same day I eat wheat, even in large quantities.

      My understanding is that the response time to wheat among people with celiac
      disease varies. Is three days to a week typical?

      After avoiding wheat for a couple months, I noticed improvement, but this could
      be due to a variety of unrelated causes. Casein or lactose intolerance may be
      another suspect because I was severely allergic to milk as an infant.

      I am starting a spreadsheet to track diet and symptoms over time. This should
      be useful in any case.
