  1. I will try to make this short. I have suffered from lifelong depression/anxiety, and in June it had gotten so bad I almost could not go in public without having panic attacks, also I generally felt sick and run down always and had only a couple bowel movements a week. I went serching for somekind kind of answers and after reading alot on the internet I decided to go gluten free in July. After about 4.5 months I am now having a bowel movement everyday (and they actually look normal, I think) Also I feel my deppression/anxiety is slowly improving. Some other things I have been realizing is: When i look at childhood pictures my stomach is oddly bulged out , like a extreme beer belly ( but not so into adulthood), I have always had constipation and loose but solid bowel movements, lots of trouble in school with focus, etc., and no matter how healthy I eat I was always slightly overweight and chubby, plus vision blurry and trouble focusing but eye docter says I have 20/20 vision. Anyhow that is all I will say for now. My question is, does it sound like i have celiacs disease? I do not have health insurance so i do not want to be diagnosed by a doctor. One more thing in June I had blood work done and the doc said I had low iron, can gluten cause this? Peace
