Wondering If I Have Celiac Disease, And If I Should Be Tested...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am a new member to this site, but I joined because it seems to be chock full of some very useful info and some nice people. Anyway, I am a 19 year old female and I have been dealing with a number of symptoms for some time. I was talking about this with my mother and she said it sounded a bit like Celiac Disease. Having no idea what celiac disease was, I looked it up, and came to this site. It sounds an awful lot like what I am experiencing:


Soft stools (if anything even comes out; "soft serve" sorry if that was TMI)

Grainy stools

Mucus in stools (sometimes I feel like I have to go and pass only mucus)



Weight loss (10 lbs. and my diet/exercise has not changed)

Easy bruising (bruises appear and I have no idea where they come from)

I am going to the doctor tomorrow, should I ask to be tested for Celiac Disease? And how do I do so without getting the brush off from my doctor?
