Undiagnosed Celiac And Gastric Bipass Surgery?

13 May 2012 - 09:08 AM

Hello everyone,

I spent years figuring out and understand me reading the web non stop to learn that I have celiac disease. I understand the situation probably than most people and all the illnesses connected to it. Why my life gets better I'm noticing how many of my relatives and friends might and probably have it. My jaw drops when I think about it all. It's quite frustrating to know how bad it is in my opinion.

My cousin is a childrens psychologist who had gastric bypass surgery because she told me she has "metabolic syndrome". She is so bent on believing in mental health that she believes im the one who is insane. It's probably because I have a highschool education and i know too much but I suspect my I.Q. is through the roof (if that's what you want to call it these days). Research about Metabolic syndrome was done in the 60's and 70's, and i read for awhile and did some searching on the web about how there could be a link between metabolic syndrome and celiac disease. Which even before I read her text I myself what thinking she was a celiac because it just made sense to me, because I think everyone in my family has celiac disease, and I won't stop till everyone of them gets tested.

She wants nothing to with me now, told me to go get therapy. Told me "I'm completely fine, what do you not understand". She's completely fine because she is also I suspect on an anti-depressant which I don't believe in the use of anti-depressants. If your body is saying I'm sad to your brain then there is something wrong with it. This goes for other people I'm struggling to talk to in my family who want nothing to hear or listen to me on why if they are on an anti-depressant and are celiac they are going to be numb to the pains of their stomach. I noticed a year ago when I was on an anti-depressant. Just because you feel better mentally does not mean that you are not causing more problems by being medicated and naive to your own body.

What potential complications would my cousin have if she goes on living her life trusting her doctors, and her books, and not my highschool educated smart ass self. My mother passed away from cancer at age 15. She had it for 5 years. I understand now that she had undiagnosed celiac disease. I understand how people I know who potentially have celiac disease dislike me for telling them to get tested because they are on anti-depressant and feel great, when it's medicated self denial.
