Fatigue is the #1 sympton of celiac disease. Anemia is right up there too. If your villi are damaged then you are not absorbing all the iron and other supplements.

Chasefamily, Hi and welcome. :) The first thing to do when you are diagnosed with Celiac is immediately begin a gluten-free diet and stick to it for the rest of your life. That is the only way the symptoms will stop and your body will begin to heal. WHen and how were you diagnosed? Have you started a gluten-free diet yet? It is hard in the beginning but it does get easier, I promise!

Most people have the common GI probs such as:

diarrhea

nausea

weight loss

abdominal pain

cramps

etc...

and yes anemia can be a symptom too for some people. I personally do not have a problem with anemia but I have always bruised easily. Maybe someone else will be along soon to answer your questions.

Here is a link about Celiac symptoms:

thanks for the quick reply. I have been to several doctors over the last few years for multiple problems. I see a hemotologists regulary for Essential thrombytosis and low ferritin level, plus severe bruising, I have been going ther since 1997, I was having bleeding problems and had to have emergency hysterectomy because I wouldn;t stop bleeding ever since that I have had problems with my iron count and have been on and off of iron medication since 97 but still bruise alot and always tired, I reciently went to a GI doctor for acid reflux problems and food coming back into my esophagus and he is the one who thought I might have celiac disease after reading all of my medical info. I am scheduled to have endoscopy the end of this moneth but he did not tell me to start a gluten free diet yet?

Hi Chase family and welcome!

I would advise you not to go gluten free until the

Endoscopy is done. If you start to eat gluten

free now it will affect your biopsy and blood

test. Have you had the blood test yet? My

GI doc did a celiac panel, I tested Neg for

the gene but positive for the IgA (75). I was

retested in 6 mos, my level is still somewhat

elevated. My doc said to try foods again one

by one to see how I react, I did this but

found I still cannot tolerate wheat or dairy.

My advice to you is to keep a journal of

what you consume as you will probably have

some "gluten accidents" from time to time.

Try to learn as much as you can about

this disease because my doc told me to

avoid wheat, rye, oats, and distilled vinegar!(DUH)

Get in the habit of readin all the labels, at first

it seems overwhelming. Try to come to this website

every day. There are plenty of people ready

to help you. Hope this helps.

    • So I've been glutened....
      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Coffee is a no-no for me!  I actually gave up coffee since my diagnosis back on 2/2016.  I was diagnosed by a biopsy in the stomach...no villi.   Coffee is a stimulant to the GI system and it really irritates your GI when you are having a flare up.  I was tested by stools and was informed I barely had good bacteria in my gut which is typically for people with celiac. I went on a high dose of probiotic (just started) twice a day, multivitamin, lots of fermented vegetables like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso soup and tons of bone broth.  I am going to a local farm today to pick up organic bones to make my broth.  I am so desperate to heal my gut, not to introduce gluten but to be able to tolerate an exposure without being knocked out by it....Eat very light, I stick to vegetable juice, resistance starch food such as banana, apples, potatoes boiled until my diarrhea subsides.  I am currently in a flare up stage; did something and I have been glutened I am on day 7 and my symptoms peak after a few days, around day 4-5 and it last a few days of Diarrhea, nausea, sensation of feeling full, back pain in the rib cage on left side and hip/lower back pain on left side.  Its horrible!  I feel weak right now due to the diarrhea and since I am not hungry it makes it worse.  Hope this gets better.
    • DNA Testing
      I got the print out and took it to my new dr because what my RA was saying didn't seem to add up.  When I pressed him for more info, he said I didn't have any of the markers. Turns out he read the test wrong!  Since then, my new doc also questioned all my previous bloodwork and asked why I hadn't been told that my counts were really low or tested for ferritin levels. My ferritin was at 10, so, yeah, 4 other Dr's missed anemia on my labs. It's been frustrating to say the least, but I am finally feeling a little bit hopeful with my new primary doc. She's just referred me to a specialist focusing on celiac. Considering my former gp told me "that whole celiac thing is just a fad", I'm feeling a bit more secure. 
    • So I've been glutened....
      Thanks for the kind responses  Last night I went out and had a black coffee, non decaf.   Big mistake... I started getting gas almost immediately and it went on for the rest of the evening. It seems like anything which might annoy my stomach at the moment results in churning and an uncomfortable feeling. the weird thing is that I ate a huge lunch including gluten-free bread earlier with no effects whatsoever. Just as well as I couldn't face food last night and am not enthused with breakfast now.  C i think I'll dig out some probiotics and try and eat simply for a few days and hope things settle down. I'm just worried that something has changed and this is the new normal... That would suck...  
    • Toblerone
      It's on the safe list here in the uk and I eat it without a problem. theres also a really nice almondy toblerone cake available now.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
