  1. I was diagnosed with a biopsy. The only outward signs I have basically is anemia, and very little dermatitis. I had had diahrea for six months and lost a lot of weight, so I went to a gastrologist and he did a biopsy and diagnosed me. I went off flour, etc. and it cleared up within a few days. I went glueten free for nine months, then slowly put it back in my diet. I have had no problem except once in a great while I get diarhea for a day or two and I stay off it again, otherwise I am healthy as a horse. It just irritates me that I am well with it for probably 99% of the year, but since I was so called "branded" with the term celiac they lump me in with the uninsurable. I went again to another insurance company and asked them to check with their underwriters if they could insure me. I told them up front that I was diagnosed with it even though I have hardly any trouble with it. The underwriter came back on the phone and said I would not be accepted. When the agent asked why they said that their book said that celiacs have a greater tendency for lymphomas and that is why they would not take me. The only recourse is to go with state insurance which is $493.00 a month, which to me is a big chunk of change.
  2. I have been covered under my husband's insurance for 38 years. He is now retired and his company went bankrupt and we are trying to find insurance and they will take him but not me since I have celiac. Has anyone else had this problem
