I don't know if they looked for internal bleeding....who would do that? I had a colonscopy which showed only slight diverticulosis. Nothing to even remove and send off for testing.

I know what you mean about the more doctors you see and getting more confused. My GI at least thought my antibody level was abnormal and so this started my search for answers about celiac disease. But the blood doc said in no way would you tell someone they could have celiac disease based on that alone. Well that sort of got me excited thinking the GI is mistaken but until the Celiac panel blood tests come back I won't know what's what!

I would pose the question to your primary physician - whoever you consider that to be. May be your GP or other. Don't let them brush you off. Unexplained anemia can be a sign of either significant or slow, less significant internal bleeding. It should be investigated if all other possibilities have been exhausted. Claire

My dd was also always anemic and I believe that it was directly related to her gluten sensitivity. Nothing was ever done about it and I was told her give her a vitamin and be sure she ate enough iron. This was a child who ate us out of house and home and then some because she was so starving and yet was vitamin deficient and malnourished to the point that her hair was/is falling out.

Drs. are on my hit list right now!!! We didn't get the menstrating line, obviously, but we just got some other BS because they obviously knew she was eating better than most children on this planet, yet was not absorbing the nutrients properly. They chose not to figure out why...

Claire - well I don't know that I have celiac disease yet. I don't really have the gastro symptoms. But I'm going to ask my doctor to check for ulcers just in case. She's an internist but she's young and she doesn't seem to worry too much about what's causing my anemia. I want to change to another pcp but I can't do that in the middle of all these tests. One thing my doc will do is refer me to whoever I tell her to. Have to credit her for that.

e&j0304 - I'm right there with you on the doctors being on my hit list too. When the hemo doc stopped listening to me after he'd asked if I had 'D' or 'C' and I said no, I knew he wasn't going to be of help to me. At least he ordered the Celiac panel so I'm anxious to find out those results.

    • My husband bought some McCormick's skillet sauce on Sunday and it says it's certified gluten free. We always use the gluten free seasoning and I've never had an issue. I've just noticed the last couple days that my tummy has been kinda funny and I can't really think of anything that I've eaten that would have caused it, so it may very well not be gluten. But I went to their website and checked out the ingredients and it lists worscestshire sauce as an ingredient. It also lists the ingredients in that and I don't see any malt - just distilled vinegar. But I haven't eaten worscestshire sauce since I was diagnosed because I thought it wasn't safe. But I trust McCormick and know they have a good reputation. Thoughts? Oh, and here's the link to the product.  https://www.mccormick.com/spices-and-flavors/cooking-sauces/skillet-sauces/fajita-skillet-sauce
    • First STAY on gluten til you are done testing, you need 12 weeks for blood test with it in your system and 2 weeks for hte follow up endoscope.  Second yes, if he has celiac then his intestines are damaged and he will not be getting all the nutrients his body needs, so even when off gluten you can have issues show up like this. These can be helped by supplementing I suggest a full B-vitamin regime, and magnesium myself, there are others he might be low in like iron, folate, potassium etc. You should probably see about having his levels checked and talking to a dietician about what me might need. I personally love this blend from liquid health called stress & energy and another one from them called neurological support that I take 1tbsp of each 3 times a day. Best part they are liquid so you just add them to tea, water, or juice. Another I might suggest is Doctors Best Magnesium or Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium Supplements. Doctors best is easier on the stomach while calm can cause gut issues and a laxative effect and it is suggest you start off with 1/4tsp doses and step it up from there to the full dose. I take 2-3 times the dose on this but we are all different in the levels we will need.
    • If and when he is diagnosed celiac you will know more.   That could be from any number of vitamin deficiencies common to celiacs. B's, magnesium, iron. Your doctor should, and I'm sure will, test for many nutrients he may be missing. But while I started feeling better after the first week, it was many months of healing and correcting vitamin deficiencies to really feel better
    • You sound like me...  I was diagnosed with leaky got due to a severe gluten exposure that caused some pretty terrible internal bleeding for 6 weeks and now I react to everything I eat the last couple years... they said the gut lining created like holes that leaks everything I eat into the bloodstream and the body thinks it's foreign and creates a false allergy. My iGGs are everything except meat and seaweed salt basically. I started taking supplements to rebuild my gut and get in my nutrients (a few are Stress B, Anti Histamine, Tumeric, probiotics, etc) and I try to avoid any reactors but it's hard when I travel so much, I live mostly on dried seaweed, potatoes and canned chicken (natural kind). I am thinking about doing a round of stem cell soon on my gut using PRP mixed with my Bone marrow because I work in the medical area with some docs that do it and my research is actually quite amazing in this area. For years the doctor always found that I had a high SNA tests for an auto immune disease but they didn't believe even with celiac gene that it could cause the high ANA and they had already ruled out things like lime disease, lupus,  etc. I honestly believe it's the celiacs that is my biggest auto immune complication, but people have mixed opinions in that
    • My husband has been gluten free for a week.  He said his stomach issues have improved dramatically he is not bloated at all and usually his stomach bloats three times it's size.  But he said his muscles still feel tired, tight and kind of achy and twitchy .  Is that a normal thing ?  I'm wondering how long after being off of gluten should the symptoms improve ?  We are still waiting to hear back from the doctor about results from the celiac panel thank you in advance !!!
