After a bout of diarrhea, a few weeks ago i got a wierd tight binding feeling in my upper gut below my ribcage. Shortly after I had immobilizing pain and constipation for days.  finally relieved with limiting diet and taking laxatives. stools were soft and noticeably paler than usual.  I haven't quite recovered 100%.  it happened again this week after eating a high carb diet including crackers and pizza. I'm almost 50 years old,  does this sound like Celiac disease. I have a dr appt on Tuesday. Is there a blood test that will show if it is?

Hi Angela,

Yes, there is a series of blood antibody tests called a celiac panel.  It measures gliaden antibodies of various types.  The blood tests are not accurate if you aren't eating gluten for 12 weeks before hand.  They also would usually do an endoscopy to take tissue samples from the small intestine lining if the blood tests are positive.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
