  1. I have not been diagnosed with celiac but I am pretty positive I have at least a sensitivity to gluten. For one year I suffered from upset stomach and constipation and for the past two years I have suffered from abdominal pain and diarrhea. I stopped eating bread and pasta for a week and already noticed a difference. After cheating for one night I woke up with stomach pain and diarrhea for the entire day. I also have endometriosis, a history of miscarriage, tooth decay, heart palpitations (which I am now taking meds for) and am extremely overweight. I have insurance but my out of pocket cost for the test would be too much. Do you think I should just stick to what I know helps without getting an official diagnosis?  Any insight would be helpful.
