blackbetty and Shelbz, don't be fooled by your current symptoms, or lack of. Remember, we now know that most gluten symptoms are NOT digestive in nature. The classic celiac symptoms are diarrhea and/or constipation, bloating, cramping/pain, etc -- but the list of over 300 celiac symptoms suggests that the classic symptoms are no longer the major indicators of this disease or intolerance. Personally, at the first and second levels of my family, there are 6 of us with diagnosed celiac disease, 2 who are sure but have been gluten free too long to test positive, 2 who are gluten sensitive, and several in denial/not interested. Only my diagnosed niece reacts to gluten with stomach pain, while one of my "uninterested" nephews has had stomach issues all his life. For the rest of us, the symptoms range from anemia, extreme fatigue, DH, hypothyroid, to severe brain fog, depression, acne, short stature (now remedied), delayed puberty, and others. I went gluten-free when we found out about our son and decided to do a gluten challenge last year. Prior to being gluten free, I had dealt with mild depression and severe fatigue + brain fog most of my adult life, and was surprised that those symptoms were milder than I expected when I reintroduced gluten. However, the lack of energy and brain fog were so frustrating that I could only tolerate 6 weeks of the challenge. My blood tests were within normal ranges at that point, but with both genetic markers along with a slew of symptoms and a huge family history, I have no doubt that I have celiac disease and choose to stay gluten free. I WISH I had stuck with the challenge!
The two of you look really young, so my personal opinion is that it's very important to get a diagnosis. Potential issues that could arise as you get older or with any future children could point back to your diagnosis and give docs a better foothold on your situation. On average, it takes 11 years for someone with celiac disease to be properly diagnosed, so please don't mess an opportunity! Hang in there and don't be thrown off by your mild reactions so far. Like cyclinglady indicated, you never know what's lurking under the surface....even when you don't feel sick.
