    • Furthermore, getting a positive on the endoscopy will leave no doubt either in your mind nor in the minds of the rest of your family or friends. All first degree relatives of celiacs need to be tested every 2 or 3 years in the absence of symptoms & immediately if symptoms present since celiac can present at ANY age. So your parents, siblings & your children will need to be tested. Believe me, there is oftentimes a TON of pushback by family members simply because they don't want to have celiac so they stick their heads in the sand & say you're off your rocker, refuse to get tested because they say they don't have it and you don't have a concrete diagnosis so how can you be sure they need to be tested? Friends can be even more doubtful. People are really, really doubtful of people who don't have an ironclad diagnosis. I think it's stupid of them to be so negative & questioning what you know to be true but they are. I mean, when you say you are diabetic, no one doubts that you are, no one questions your diagnosis and everyone respects the implications of diabetes but that is not the case with celiacs. I think it must be that people can not conceive of never eating wheat flour again for life. They can easily accept a diabetics diet but not a celiacs. Yet they will grill you as if they are experts in celiac disease unless you can tell them you've had the full nine yards of testing & ARE, no doubt about it, celiac.
    • Hi ch88, You could try going nightshade free to see if it helps your arthritis.  It might help.  The common food nightshades are potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, turmeric and paprika.  If you try nightshade free for one month that should be enough time to know if it helps IMHO. Sweet potatoes/yams are ok, as they are not nightshades.
    • Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn
