  1. Thank you, everyone, for your replies and advice! I feel a little bit more informed now, perhaps I'll launch another attack on my Dad and sister to not eat gluten! Just kidding...no attacking going on. I have also had issues with my nervous system...One day I woke up and my entire left leg was numb...after being awake for a while it turned into very sharp pains coursing through my whole leg...Turns out I was severely deficient in vitamin B12 and in iron, and the doctor at my university gave me the stupid Canadian Food Guide like it was a prescription! Apparently you should have enough B12 reserves to last you 3 years, and I was out of it all!! Now there is permanent nerve damage on the front of my shin... I don't even want to think of how many brain cells I've killed due to not knowing about my Celiac!
  2. Hi everyone! Just found this forum today, looks good! I was diagnosed about 10 months ago with Celiac, and I am very very intolerant, so I am quite strict with eating no gluten. Since then my sister and Dad have been diagnosed, however because they do not have as "severe" symptoms, they continue to eat gluten and it's very frustrating, especially since I know ignoring Celiac can cause many other health issues. So here's my question: What diseases/issues have arisen with you or someone you know by either ignoring Celiac or being misdiagnosed for a time? I'm hoping I will be able to show my Dad your answers and "scare" him into going gluten-free! Thanks!
