hi all, 

i am a newbie on here and still a bit confused about the hole thing! 

i suffered with constipation and tiredness for a long time and put on weight real easy even tho i eat really healthy! i went to the doctor on numberous occasions and they always told me to drink more water! eat more fruit and veg! anyway long story short a new doctor suggested doing a blood test for wheat and sure enough, it came back high! TTG 150 +,, i was shocked to say the least, so i was booked in for a gastro and colon test....

However, the person doing the gastro test asked me a few questions of what i was in for and why the test, i told her for coeliac and she asked about symptoms, told her mine and she told me in a near condescending way that thats not coeliac symptoms and kinda laughed at me and shock her head! at the time i didnt realise my bloods where high or did not know much about the blood  results or the hole thing really!

When she finished she said just as i though they look normal, i felt a bit stupid as i was half drugged too!

Anyway, 4 weeks later i went for my colon test and the doctor (a different one) asked me a few questions again!! i was reluctant to say i was being tested for coeliac and i had a gastro test a couple of weeks before hand, he pulled out the file and had a look through it and said, yes you arecoeliac,,, not sure how this happened or why i wasnt told properly or even what happens next??? now this was only last week. 

Has anyone else had my symtoms?? alot of people i spoke to seem to have the opposite effect??  and if so, has the diet made a difference to them? How, long did it take? and will this tiredness go away!!

Anyway thanks in advance!!

Those are all symptoms of Celiac.  For some it is constipation and weigh gain.  Its odd that way.    Did the doctor offer any help or advice?  You will need to go gluten free for life.

Yeah mine was the constipation really bad, it clears up some but my constipation was partially trigger by the damage causing malabsoprtion of magnesium leading to the constipation along with other things and complications. All sore layers up into a big compounding issue, example the tiredness is a combo deal to and varies from person to person, part of it is nutrient deficiency particularly b-vitamins vitamin D, iron. magnesium, etc. Another part with the constipation has to do with the poop being stuck in you so long can cause a sort of poison like effect, and not letting your system run right. I will give some tips on top of the gluten free diet. I also suggest you read the gluten free 101, a crumb or gluten residue from scratched cookware that retains gluten can cause your antibodies to flare back up.

Constipation, with this I suggest you supplement with magnesium citrate, Natural Vitality Magnesium Calm, start off with very small doses like 1/4tsp and over 1-2 weeks adjust it up to the full dose. It might hit a bit hard and cause loose stools while you body adjust.
Tiredness/stress Look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy and Liquid Health Neurological support, 1tbsp each 3 times a day before meals. This will work with your B-vitamins
You might need a Vitamin D or Iron Supplement in addition.

    This is great advice, my mother and grand mother (both Hispanic) always would get the freshest ones and dip in the sauce before rolling. When reheating it varied with tortillas on freshness (and how much of a hurry) but they either heated...
