2010-Doctor diagnosed me as Celiac then took diagnoses back, then said avoid gluten for life
2009 – Low T3 thyroid hormone, muscle twitching and adrenal fatigue
2006- Elevated Speckled ANA. GI suggested Celiac. Started gluten-free diet, but sloppily
2005 - Thought I had wheat "allergy." Stopped eating bread, oats problem too
College years - Still vegan -sickest point in life. Every classic celiac symptom
Teenage years - Stomach pain prompted veganism -> BIG mistake!
Child - Awful gas, D, C. Chronic infections, appendix and tonsils removed

Hi! I know this question was posted several months ago, but I'm new here & just saw it.
I also have another autoimmune disease - one I didn't see listed among the other replies. I have Guillian-Barre. That's a terribly painfull & crippling autoimmune disease. I was in a wheelchair for several years because of that. After my celiac diagnosis & my new gluten free lifestyle, my GB has gotten much better. I'm even walking again!
Additionally, my "mystery anemia" has healed, & I haven't had a blood transfusion in nearly a year.
My biggest problem now is accidental gluten ingestion.
Although I read all ingredient labels, (as we all know) gluten hides under many false names.
Other times, I was accidentally "glutenised" by cross-contamination. Hence, I only eat food from my own kitchen now. Restaraunts are horrible cross-contaminators, as are the kitchens of friends & relatives - even when they try to be careful, & think they've decontaminated surfaces, they really don't know how to do that correctly.
