Undiagnosed20 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsCould It Be Celiac?Hi everyone. I just joined the site and am looking to understand more about my condition. Firstly, I am a 20 year old male, and for the past year or so virtually all of my bowel movements have been diarrhea/steatotrhea. Depending on the day I go to the bathroom 3 to as many as 10 times in extreme situations. I went to the doctor and was tested for every food allergy and for Celiac but all turned up negative. I have researched the disease however, and honestly think I may have it. I just want to compare sone of my specific symptoms with others here to see if there are any similarities. I apologize for the length of this post, but I have a few questions concerning celiac disease:
-Is it common to almost never have a solid BM?
-Don't mean to be graphic but is anyone else unable to pass gas without defecating? This is one in particular I haven't heard much about.
-Could these symptoms be from something as simple as having a bad diet? I admittedly eat a lot of fried/junk foods (gluten or not) and have all my life basically, but could that alone be the cause or do you think it has to be more complex?
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to your responses.
