  1. [ Hi, I was diagnosed with Celiac in Jan. 2008 after over 10 years of suffering. I went to a dietician too, but she didn't tell me anything new than what I found online on my own. My Doc has me tested one a year to see if my numbers are dropping. That means that my intestines are healing and I am absorbing nutrients. You really should see a specialist if you do not feel like you are getting the answers you want from your doc. If he/she is willing to send you, than take advantage of it. Hope this helps. God Bless!!
  2. Pre-eclampsia & Celiac

    I went through the same thing with both of my girls. I was diagnosed with Celiac one year ago. I have had it for over 10 years and I thank God that I didn"t have any miscariages. I did not have the classic symtoms of Celiac. I was always iron defficient most of my life. When I was pregnant with my first daughter, six years ago, I was taking four iron pills a day and it did not help. I had pre-e at the end and i was induced. When I was preganant with my second, I developed high blood pressure and pre-e alot sooner, but i carried to full term. The only difference was that my second weighed only 5'14 compared to my first at 8'3. My second was also a twin that I lost in the very beginning. I truly believe that if I would have been diagnosed with Celiac before my preganancies, I would have not had thepre-e. I had a tubal done after my second because I was afraid to get pregnant again. Now that we know what was wrong, I wish that I could have tried one more time. If someone thinks they have Celiac, just ask your doc for the simple bloodtest needed to diagnose it, even if they fight you on it. If I would have known about Celiac, I would have prevented alot of damage to my body. Hope this helps and God bless!!
