  1. So I'm definitely gluten intolerant. Unfortunately it took me two years to come to that conclusion and I came to it by removing gluten from my diet and feeling instantly better (this was about the 10th thing the doctor had me try). But now I'm left wondering if I'm Celiac or just allergic to gluten. Is there anyway to tell WITHOUT taking the test? I really can't imagine going through the pain of eating gluten again just to take a test, and I remember my doctor mentioning how pricey it is and that it's not even always accurate. I know I should just avoid gluten regardless but I'd really like to know if it's Celiac that way I can be extra careful so as to not hurt my body. I also want to know for my future kids etc.
