  1. That's so interesting about allergies - I have developed them in the past few years and I feel like they get worse each season. The more I learn about celiac there more I think there might be celiac in my family ... nothing diagnosed, but my mom has history of iritis (inflamation of the eye), arthritis, IBS and miscarriage. My sister is lactose intolerant, and I have always thought I suffered from chronic IBS. I have also had dry eyes and light sensitivity and recently I had a retina detachment and I'm in my early 30s (which is pretty uncommon), so it might be a stretch but I want to investigate to see if somehow these might be connected. If I can prevent another eye injury (and, of course, to not to have to live with IBS symptoms) it's worth giving up gluten! This is a really informative board - I had no idea how prevalent celiac really is and have learned so much already! I truly appreciate the responses - thank you!
  2. I am new to this board and am wondering if anyone has ever experienced or heard about celiac and eye-related issues? I have heard about blurred vision that celiac can cause, but anything more like problems with retina, light sensitivity, etc? Very curious to hear if anyone knows more on this topic. Thanks!
