  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Just came back from the Dr`s. I explained my symptoms and suggested that trough the research I made I might be celiac. He has suggested blood tests and I am having them on Saturday. I feel so relived that he seems to know what he is talking about. Here in Malta we can have everything done free at the local hospital, so I shall first have a blood test then he will see if I need a endoscopy. Thanks for your replies it has been a great comfort to know that I can just post and some one will answer back
  3. Hi, Today I have my first Dr`s appointment and i`m very nervous. I feel like I don`t know what to expect,. Could anyone please help....what shall I ask,what shall I say? I wrote a list of things that I eat and my reaction words it. Example: pasta, as soon as I eat it I have to go to the bathroom same with milk and so on. Should I hint that I think that I might be Celiac or let him tell me? Some times I feel like i`m imaging things and maybe exaggerating ? Help i`m very confused and depressed!
  4. Hi,I am a 39 mum of tow boys aged two and four. I live on the beautiful island of Malta which is situated in the Mediterranean. I have a doctor`s(one of the best qualified regarding Celiac disease) appointment on Wednesday and cannot wait to see what he has to say about my symptoms. I suffer from psoriasis, dry skin, headaches, diarrhea, asthma, joint pain, very lethargic, heartburn, gas and abdominal pain I am also very overweight. I get my worst bouts of diarrhea after I eat bread and/or drink milk. I get cravings like mad and I tend to bing on bread and milk. Since I started to make connections I realized that I must have some sort of allergy and I started to look into this extremely informative site I realized that I might have Celiac disease. What do you all think?
