This is an outstanding article for the simple reason that no matter how much knowledge a person's doctor may have there will always be doctors who are at a loss when it come to people who with celiac disease. I am a person who can now remain with my family physician and have the required test for celiac disease, and get the proper education to manage the condition.

Enterolab.com is who I was diagnosed through, and I would happily recommend them to anyone wanting a safe and accurate non-invasive test.

The University of Chicago's Celiac Center has a free e-book which recommends testing done by Prometheus Labs or by the Mayo Clinic labs. It's been 16 years since the article above was written - is it still considered up-to-date?

First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before dia...

Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers. I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better. I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements. They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers. They were fo...

The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing. The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed. Go see the gastroenterologist. The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms. Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ. It takes time but prob...
