Hi.

Im here to ask what kind of symptoms you had before your diagnosis.

I have had bloating and gas for as long as I can remember. Diarrhea is present occasionally and its nothing serious.I also have acne which is not going away (im 24), but dont know if celiac can cause that. No serious stomach pain. I cant make any connection with gluten and symptoms but I have never been gluten free more than couple days tho.

Is it possible that I might have celiac disease based on these symptoms? No diagnosed celiac on any family members.

Hi!

There are over 200 symptoms attributed to celiac disease.  The only way to diagnose celiac disease is to get tested.  It starts with a simple blood test.   Be sure that you have been consuming gluten some 8 to 12 weeks before the blood test or your results probably will not be accurate. All testing requires you to be on a full gluten diet.
