inducedjoy added a topic in Celiac Disease - Related Disorders & ResearchLupus And Celiac Disease?I have tried looking into other posts on here about the relation between lupus and celiac disease, but it seems as though every one I click on, it turns into a conversation about something else.
Has anyone on here been diagnosed with celiac disease before being diagnosed with lupus? I have a strong feeling I may have lupus because it runs in my family, and in the last six months, I have noticed some things that lead me to believe I may have it.
If you were diagnosed with lupus after your celiac diagnosis, how long was it after the fact? What lead you to being tested for lupus?
Also, if anyone has scholarly articles or medical publications they can point me towards regarding the subject, it would be greatly appreciated!

inducedjoy added a topic in Celiac Meeting RoomAnyone Under The Age Of 25?Hi all!
I've noticed that most people on this forum are well over the 25 age mark, but I'm curious to see if there are any younger people on the forum. I'm only 19, and although I find the advice and friendliness of all users to be extremely helpful and welcoming, I would like to talk to someone my own age who is going through this. Someone who knows what it's like to miss school because of celiac issues, or who understand how hard it is to explain your special diet to a potential boyfriend or new friends who weren't there during your diagnosis. Perhaps someone who hasn't dealt with being gluten free for 20+ years or who doesn't have a houseful of kids to feed, because I just can't relate to scenarios like that.
SO! If you're a pretty young person on the forums, let's talk! I've never met anyone my own age with celiac disease, and I'm curious to see how others have dealt with it.
