kuumeilani added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsCeliac Vs Gluten IntoleranceLet me confirm my findings on the difference.
Celiac can be tested for while gluten intolerance cannot?
Both issues may or may not have the same symptoms?
When going gluten free, one may feel some relief but not fully healthy?
Is that right?
So, I went to the doctors last Wednesday, July 11. After the doctor's I decided to go wheat free anyway. I have felt some relief but not a lot which I understand may take awhile. I'm also lactose intolerant and that I have eliminated from my diet a while and have felt relieved! So I know my bloating, gasiness, fatty yuckiness, exhaustion, and irritability is not from lactose. Today, I got the results and tested negative for celiac. However, doctor did not say I would be sensitive to gluten. Today, I didn't have lunch on me and was STARVING and went for a small plate of Ramen noodles. Talk about stomach gas! ugh. Can anyone say this is gluten intolerance?
