Welcome Ben!

You certainly could have Celiac Disease or Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance.

It is VERY important to have your doctor order a full celiac blood panel BEFORE you remove gluten from your diet. The antibodies measured in these tests are produced in reaction to gluten ingestion.

Also a good idea to be tested for nutritional deficincies - celiac can cause malabsorption issues.

Hang in there - make sure all tests are completed and then remove ALL gluten for at least three monts as elimination is the only test for NCGI.


Thank you for the reply Lisa :)

I'll take your advice and get a doctors appointment asap! I will also continue with my current diet until I've see the doctor.

Thanks again!
