As to the question about the pancreas...a hormone (CCK) is made in the duodenum and is sent to the gallbladder and pancreas telling them to squeeze bile and release digestive enzymes when you eat. If there is damage in the duodenum, which is pretty common in Celiac disease, this hormone may not be made..or the signal is not being sent.
I'm currently taking pancreatic RX enzymes because of this problem. Has your hubby been tested for Ceiac? Has he had an endoscope?



No he hasn't been tested for anything other than pancreatitits. But I was just wondering if this could be an issue with him as well. I have no doubt that I am gluten intolerant but not sure about celiac. His pancreas problems are not easily diagnosed. They know its affected but not sure why. He doesnt have the usual signs. and nothing they do for pancreatitis is working. I was just taking a shot in the dark....

Thanks to everyone who commented!!!

Yes, that is what I did to. I made my doctor take the celiac blood test. I am tired of wondering what is wrong with me to! My trouble is that I don't think my doc will take it any farther after blood tests results come in good or bad. So, I may just have to wing it and go gluten free without diagnosis. What to do what to do.....

Hello everyone. I am also new here. My name is Eddie. I am female lol. I also am self diagnosed right now. Maybe forever since my doc doesnt take this thing seriously at all. So here I am trying to get some good quality info under my belt to help me on this journey of becoming gluten free. :)
