  1. One comment -- I notice that you do not have celiac disease. So just curious, why are you posting on this site? It seems like your issues would be better addressed via a forum that deals with constipation and leaky gut. Just trying to keep the forum focused.
  2. It is absolutely possible. As Skymgirl pointed out, she is living proof. But also, there has been research done on the relationship between Chron's and Celiac. It is definitely rare to have both, but not impossible. A statement like this from your Dr. would make me call in to question his/her competence. You might want to seek out a new Dr.
  3. What color was the blood? Bright red or dark red (maroon to black). If it is Bright read, it is likely from the colon or Anus. Hemorrhoids can cause a surprisingly large amount of bleeding. Trust me - I've had them for years. I bleed basically every time I use the restroom. Like you, I was concerned at first, and after 2 colonoscopies, and a variety of other tests, the bleeding is definitely the hemorrhoids. The moral of the story is that you should have a colonoscopy to identify the source. As others have mentioned, bleeding is not symptom of Celiac disease.
  4. I just wanted to let everyone know the Dr. Christina Tennyson joined Dr. Green's staff at the Celiac Disease Center this past winter. I am a current patient of her's and could not be happier with the quality of care that she and this facility provide. Dr. Green typically stops in during appointments to say hi and see how things are going, so you really do get the best of both worlds. If you live with in a Stones throw of Manhattan, it is worth the trip. They look in to a variety of conditions (pancreatic enzymes, Bacterial Overgrowth, Bone Density, etc.) that 99% of GI's just do not do. I would also recommend Dr. Green's book for anyone who has Celiac Disease or thinks they may potentially have Celiac disease. All The best.
