  1. First of all, thank you thank you thank you to all who are involved with contributing to this message board. I'm recently diagnosed with celiac disease (blood work and upper endoscomy biopsy confirmed) and very much looking forward to healing up and getting better. I was, among other things, a cyclist, karate practitioner, and a generally overall highly active person, and over the past seven years have became weaker and weaker, sicker and sicker, my iron stores depleted and tensions headaches after working out morphed into migraines nearly half the days out of every month. Finally, thanks to the nurse practitioner intent on figuring out what was wrong with me, I have clear answer. Now comes the interesting part, living gluten free. I am hopeful the migraines will get better; the neurologist thinks it's possible. Any testimonials out there? I am so glad to finally figure out what the problem is. ae
