My niece has celiac disease and my aunt does, my question is I've been throwing up at least 5 times a week and diarrhea most of the time. My mood swings are bad sometimes. I want to know if others have had the same symptoms as me and is celiac.

Welcome Jan!

 

How long have you had these symptoms?  There are numerous symptoms associated with Celiac Disease...here is a list:

Celiac Disease is genetic -- your Aunt is enough reason to be tested every 3-5 years -- more often if symptoms arise.

 

Make sure you get a complete Celiac antibody panel:

 

Total Serum IgA

tTG - Both IgA and IgG

EMA - IgA

DGP - Both IgA and IgG

 

If you suspect Celiac Disease or Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity DO NOT remove gluten until the testing is complete -- the tests measure antibodies created in response to gluten ingestion.

 

Good Luck to you :)

It is quite possible with your family history that you have Celiac, or on your way.

 

You have two options before you.  One, is to remain on a full gluten diet and be tested for the blood test that Lisa offered.  Or, to go gluten free.  With improvement on a fully compliant diet, you could consider yourself Non Celiac Gluten Sensitive or with Celiac Disease.  There is no current testing for NCGS.

 

Personally, I would suggest that you be tested by a doctor who is fairly well versed in testing and interpretations.
