So -- I just had to tell somebody this b/c it made me so happy and so sure I am on the right track (even though my blood came back negative) -- I am still waiting for my GI appt. and my results from Enterolab -- but I was chatting w/ my mother last night and we were talking about my dad -- he has similar "problems" as me w/ the chronic "Big D" but has never been tested for Celiacs -- it was one of the reasons, among several symptoms of mine -- anemia, mouth sores, tired all the time, etc etc etc etc -- that made me think I may have Celiacs disease. Anyways -- while I was chatting w/ my mother, she just happened to mention that a long time ago, my dad got a prick test and you would never guess what showed up on his test -- an allergy to WHEAT! :o I think I may be on to something!! :P

Thanks for letting me share -- I'm pretty excited about it! ;)

Sounds like you are getting to the bottom of your problems.

It might mean you have an allergy to wheat, and not coeliac.

But then your symptoms sound so similar to mine, big D, low iron, mouth sores, tired etc etc.

As long as these symptoms disappear while on a gluten free diet, then I think you are on the right track. It is how we react to the diet that is more important than negative results. They could be the horrible false negatives.

Good luck and hope the results you get back give you some more answers. If not just remember how you feel not eating gluten.

Congratulations! I am glad to hear your promising news. Yup for me too, the big lightblub went off after a talk with my mom about her stomach problems and my grandfathers stomach problems etc etc....

I hope you are encouraged by your new interesting bit of info and good luck with the GI and further tests.
