  1. I have recently (2 weeks ago) been diagnosed w/ celiac disease. Am reading all I can on this site to help me understand the symptoms - which I believe my siblings and my mother are suffering from - for YEARS! Am I understanding this correctly - that there is a correlation between Hoshimoto's Disease and celiac disease? My sister has Hoshimoto's Disease and I forced her to get her first colonoscopy last week - she has also been suffering from constipation for about 20 yrs now - and her Dr says that she doesn't have celiac disease - although he did not perform a biopsy. (my celiac disease was diagnosed via biopsy results) I know that eating gluten-free for the past 2 weeks has already changed my life - after taking every IBS drug on the market - with short-lived to no success - my body is already starting to function like a "normal" person! I feel like a new person! Any information in helping me help my loved ones is greatly appreciated!
