  1. What you describe on your hands and feet might be palmoplantar pustulosis. My mother has it and it's very difficult to get rid of. there has been a study that confirms that people with gluten sensitivity or celiac are slightly more at risk for it.
  2. Some of your symptoms sound possibly like they are related to your thyroid, especially shakiness, feeling cold, heart palpitations... you could have your doctor test you for thyroid problems, although she may already have since it's pretty common especially with women. It is interesting to note also that there is a relationship between auto-immune thyroid problems, celiac disease and iron deficiency. You should ask your doctor for some more help with your symptoms... it does not sound like just stress. This has been an interesting thread, thanks! The analogy of a light being on or off in regards to ingesting gluten is really helpful. I recently had positive blood work for celiac, but I don't have the obvious digestive distress that some have, so I never know if eating a little gluten even by accident is very harmful or not.
  3. Sometimes Hashimoto's can start out as hyperthyroid and then go hypo. or you might have graves disease, which is hyperthryoid. Both are autoimmune thyroid disorders and occur more frequently in people with Celiac disease. you should be tested for thyroid antibodies. I just found out I have gluten issues, last week, but was diagnosed with Hashimoto's several years ago. We'll see how a gluten free diet will help my throid issues. I also have low iron which I was thinking was related to celiac disease, but maybe it is thyroid related according to the last post? anyone have any thoughts?
  4. I had the celiac panel done about a week ago. I tested positive for the Gliadin IGG but negative for the Gliadin IGA, I also have iron deficiency and autoimmune thyroid disorder. So I feel like this result confirmed I have Celiac, but after reading a bit more about the tests and what they mean I am feeling unsure. I have been gluten free (almost) for a week, but I only feel slightly better. i don't have a lot of digestive problems fortunately, but often feel fatigue and a kind of brain fog feeling. Should i have the biopsy done? Do i need to start eating wheat again to have the biopsy show anything. Not sure where to go from here, my naturopath wants me to go gluten free for about 3 weeks and then introduce wheat for a day and see how I feel. Anyone have another suggestion?
