Do I Have Celiac Disease?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I just joined.

I am in the process of cutting out all Gluten, as you all know it is difficult to begin!

I have not been diagnosed, but I have had people tell me and have done research, it seems like I have it.

I usually eat a sandwich for lunch, after lunch I get extremely bad gas, it hurts to pass it and it smells VERY bad, sorry to be so descriptive, but I hope I am not the only one.

I am 26 and I have had problems with my anus for around 7 years, I have had internal hemmoroids removed, it pains me to go to the bathroom, and my whole day is ruined after I do go to the bathroom.

The doctors keep giving me the runaround...please, if anyone has any experience or just an idea of what is wrong I am open to hear it.

thanks in advance.

Joe

Hi Joe:

Well, your problems certainly COULD rise from gluten intolerance; at this point there is no way of knowing. If you do not wish to be tested for celiac disease (a blood test) then you can certainly do as you are doing and eliminate gluten from your diet. This is one of the surest ways of finding out whether you tolerate gluten, and is the quickest and least expensive if you don't want to go through the testing process. Bad, evil-smelling gas after eating, and constipation (which leads to hemorrhoids) are both associated with gluten intolerance as you probably know. I don't know how many other medical things might also cause those two symptoms, but not eating gluten is a way to find out if that is it. :)

Welcome to the board and I agree with Mushroom. Do be strict with the diet and read as much as you can here to keep yourself safe. Ask any questions you need to.
