I had excessive gas production immediately after eating and I feel very embarrassed by it. I also get subtly lightheaded almost everyday, so I was wondering if they could be caused by Celiac?

Thanks

Others around here have had gas as one of their symptoms, but I don't believe it is the only symptoms for them, i am not sure of that though. idid not have that symptom myself, I usually got bloated with gas.

I did get lightheaded often though. I think it was a hypoglycaemia of some sort, and I found it did improve with less grain consumption.

Best wishes.

Hey Sasha and welcome.  Most of us here have had very dramatic symptoms.

 

I would suggest that you keep a food diary and perhaps you could pin-point a food, or foods which may be causing you discomfort.

 

And you should make an appointment with your Primary Care Doctor and he can run some test.  MANY issues can effect the "gut".  Celiac requires a specific series of tests.  I will post them....

 

Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
Total Serum IgA
