Celiac patients are not the only ones who must eat gluten free. I have Hashimoto's Autoimmune Disease and most people with Hashi's also eat gluten free. Eating gluten free is hard at first but worth the effort.

The only symptom I know of that is celiac for certain is dh, which must be diagnosed by a dermatologist.

I have both eoe and celiac and now that I have been gluten free for 18 months, my anemia is gone. It is good to get off the iron supliments because mine may have been the cause of my ulcers. It feels good to recover and heal! I may work my way down to fewer supliments and lots of feel great da...
