I have been dealing with a variety of issues over the last decade. The most pressing are chronic constipation, bloating, gas, stomach pain/upset, constant canker sores. I never really considered Celiac’s to be the root issue as I never experience diarrhea. Recently I took a 23&Me DNA test and opted in to the health portion. When my results came back, I was told that I was a carrier of one of the genes associated with Celiac Disease.

My question is, has anyone been diagnosed with this condition and not experienced diarrhea as their main symptom? I apologize if this is a reoccurring question.

I should also mention that I’ve begun to break out in hives with additional swelling in my hands, feet, and face. This has happened a few times over the last 10 years. I am being tested for Celiac’s through a blood test this week. I haven’t researched how reliable those kind of tests are.

I had constipation most of my life, the Diarrhea did not start happening til I went gluten free for years then a later exposure. You should keep eating gluten for now and see about getting the actual blood screening done to see if you have the disease, and a follow up endoscope to confirm.

Yes, I had constipation since I was a child. I am now 52. I was diagnosed 3 years ago with Celiac Disease. I’ve had minor medical issues all my life but no one put it all together. Then one day, while being treated for a bladder issue, my doc commented on how puffy my face was and asked if I’d ever been tested. I said I’d never had diarrhea in my life! But then I went home and read all the symptoms and the light bulb finally came on. By the time I was diagnosed my bladder was awful and I had other issues that took 6-12 months to resolve. But going off of gluten changed my life. Yes it is a pain to deal with travelling as much as I do, but am not sorry I found out what was wrong with me. Glad you’re getting tested!
