ciacci posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsI was recently diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. My doctor had mentioned that, because of my symptoms, it may also be celiac sprue before I went for the colonoscopy and was diagnosed with uc. Many years ago I had problems with kidney stones and was put on a restricted diet that consisted of no red meats, barley, spinach, potatoes to name a few. I also became lactose intolerant at that same time. I was never given a clear diagnosis. It was mentioned to me a while back by an MRI tech that I probably had celiac disease not only because of my reactions to certain foods but also because of my lower lumbar is not in aligned. Now that I was told I have UC, the doctor doesn't feel I should be tested. After reading a lot of the posts on this board I am starting to believe that it may be.
