Has anyone else heard of throat clearing after ingesting wheat as a symptom of Celiac? I can't seem to find that in a Celiac symptom list. I've tried to convince my two nieces to get tested too. Thanks for listening.
I am new to the Celiac message board but I am gluten free for about 5 years. for over 50 years I was congested and would check for kleenex first thing on entering a room. I found after the first year of gluten free I was experiencing a lot of relief but untill I also gave up corn, dairy, and chocolate I was not totally congestion free. But I am breathing easy for the first time in my life and loving the freedom. i sleep a lot better also.

I am finding alot of people out there who do not even believe that Celiac disease is real. I have been told that I can outgrow it by ingesting more of the foods "that don't agree with me"
I think some parents do not wish to be tested because deep inside, they are afraid that they made their child sick. You and I both know that is not the case. Give him time.

Think about how much trouble we all went through the first month or two. I completely cleaned my kitchen. Scrubbed everything down, sectioned off gluten and gluten free, and gave away loads of food. At 72, would he go through that. What about your Mom, she would have to change the way she has cooked for over 44 years.
He is 72. Think of his quality of life.
And no I am not getting this on my own. Dr. Alessio Fasano, the Medical Director of the U of Md Celiac Research center says the same thing. He would seriously question a 72 year old that wanted to be tested. Having him tested would only tell you where it came from.
