Do any other Celicas out there tend to have this?
Also My iron level was a little low on the bloodwork test despite the fact that I seem to be overdosing on Iron,so apparently my iron isn't being processed properly through the liver,and goes elsewhere,but where I don't know...

She has already started to remove gluten from her diet to see if she feels better. It has made so many of my problems better that she is going to give it a try. She of course going to have to start eating gluten again before her test at Duke.
Having started researching the heck out of Celiac's disease, gluten intolerance and hemochromotosis I have come across many studies researching a possible link. I have not found anything conclusive but with all the other problems that can come from gluten intolerance it would not surprise me.
 Her diagnosis was via liver biopsy. She tested negative for the genetic markers, making her Hemochromatosis one of the rarer varieties.
