?celiac Disease For Dummies?

26 June 2012 - 03:13 PM

Has anyone picked up the book "Celiac Disease For Dummies"? To be fair the book has a lot of good information regarding classic celiac disease. On the other hand it also declares that atypical celiac disease symptoms rarely happen. It also put a lot of effort in explaining away correlation with other autoimmune diseases. I just though I would share that with you all. I found it rather troubling and maybe the reason why doctors are having such a hard time this disease is because they are being given this book to read.

Not Sure What To Do.

Hello, I'm new to this forum and just some had some questions. I was never officially diagnosed with Celiac disease but was tested for gluten intolerance which I have. That doctor told me to reintroduce gluten again use a rotary diet. I did reintroduce and my symptoms returned and were worse then ever. Hypoglycemia, constipation, foggy ness, fatigue, muscle weakness, migraines. I do not usually have a lot lower GI issues but the constipation was an issue for weeks. I realized that I would have to cut out Gluten. The more I have researched I have found that maybe some other things could point to celiac disease. My permanent teeth came in discolored when I was a child and I always suffered with the above symptoms. I really don't want to go back on gluten just to be tested because of how bad I feel, although I have been off only a week. Would a blood test show at this point or would i have to eat gluten foods for 3 months still? I don't know what to do, I would like to know but is it worth it. I worry too because my children could have this and we wouldn't know if there is a link to it. My 10 y.o. dd shows with a wheat allergy but was negative for Celiac disease. But, she has molars that have worn enamel, and she off and on will have GI upsets and very large BMs. What should I do?
