I just got a phone call from my doctor's office stating that I am positive for Celiac. They said my numbers were abnormally high indicative of Celiac. I almost cried when I heard this. I no longer feel crazy and i'm looking forward to feeling normal and healthy again!!!!

Great news for you!

Many of us also went through a short period of gluten withdrawal. I did - I felt ill (not terribly) and dizzy and extremely hungry for about a week then that disappeared. Just sort of warning you in case it happens to you - it may not!

Either way, you are on your way to a whole new world. Poke around this site - there are incredibly knowledgable people around who are willing to respond to any questions. :) Lots of interesting and helpful topics.

Just focus on how awesome you will feel! Looks like you are already.

Thanks everyone. I'm so happy. I went out to Common Market tonight and bought a bunch of gluten-free foods and even got a gluten-free vitamin and toothpaste. It's going to be a lot of learning and researching but i'm so glad I'm pointed in the right direction. I called my mother to tell her she should consider getting tested as well.

I hope your Mum pays more attention to you than I did to my daughter! My daughter was diagnosed in March 2009 and immediately told me I should be tested. I had been very ill at the end of 2008 and my ferritin was 4. I picked up a bit but was never 'well' (just didn't realise I was ill). I then went downhill again in summer of 2009, thought I was anaemic again but tests showed I was only borderline. My daughter kept telling me that she thought I had coeliac disease and that I should ask to get tested. Don't ask me why but I was completely convinced that I wasn't coeliac and ignored her advice. To cut a long story short, I got very ill and eventually had to give my career. I went to the G.P. my daughter attends and he immediately told me that he was 90% sure that I was coeliac and following blood tests, endescopy and biopsy I got official diagnosis. If I'd listened to my daughter in the first place I would still have my career. She loves being able to say to me 'I told you so' !!

I'm now eight months down the line and have improved greatly. I still get the odd bad days but on my really good days I feel better than I have at any point in my life. Tell your Mum my story if she's reluctant to get tested.
