I am currently 19 years old. I live a pretty normal life but my stomach has been distended for quite some time. My stomach sticks out as if I was a pregnant female and its been like this since an early age. It has caused me some anxiety problems and has even gotten me on medication which I am now tapering off. I work out 4-5 times a week at a local gym nearby my house and i am in complete good shape everything is fit and fine.. everything except my stomach. I have gotten an endoscopy and a colonoscopy and the results were that i had chronic gastritis. I was given a list of foods to eat and not to eat but that didnt really seem to work.. or maybe i didnt follow it right? But i am still concerned and would like to ask if they could find out if i have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity through these two tests? my stomach extends out alot I dont have much pains and no diarrhea or any of the many symptoms im just gassy and my stomach is really out there. I appreciate any responses and would love to receive some help. Thank you.

Maybe try removing gluten from your diet and see how you react? If you find any relief it would be worth it. Plus I think you should mention your concern to your doctor. It couldn't hurt. Hope you feel better soon! :)

Hi Arian,

 

If you can get the blood antibodie tests done you should do that before trying the gluten-free diet.  The blood test are a simple procedure but you may have to wait a few weeks for the results.

Hi Arian,

Maybe you should ask your doctor to send you for an abdominal ultrasound.

I hope you find the cause.
