  1. I have been there - done that bought the T-shirt but not to come up for the doctors Celiac is known to be a chameleon throwing the doctors of the course. It is easily missed as the symptoms often show something not even remotely obvious as a gluten issue. a Blood test could revile a probability for Celiac BUT it has to be confirmed via biopsy. I have been with a gastroenterologist that claimed poisoning (Hello who did it my husband..) I think the bottom line is you need to spill all the beans, give a full profile, when talking to the doctor, explain all the issues and ask to be tested for Celiac. Most GP's do not know the first thing about Celiac thus "confuse" the symptoms with something ells. My advice to people not knowing if they have Celiac or not is: If first you do not get better from the doctors treatment find another doctor and ask to be referred to a specialist. We take for granted that doctors should know everything. We need to trust our instincts if the doctors diagnoses does not fit your gut feeling you are probably right get help from someone ells!!
  2. Hi I have been wondering if specific blood type is more prone to Celiac than others? I am O- and have had conversation with several people with Celiac and amazingly most of them were O- coincidence?
