Heavy periods can contribute to anemia.  Having celiac disease can affect your ability to absorb iron.  Celiac Disease can mess with hormones.  Has your thyroid been checked out?

I haven't seen my PCP in two years.  And last I knew I was very healthy but had celiacs disease.  My mom has a LOT of thyroid issues.  That's when they made the connection that she might be celiac.  Can being anemic mess with my light headedness, vision, or eyes?

If it has been two years since you have seen your doctor, you should consider going.  You might have thyroid issues (eyes) or you might be anemic (which could affect your being lightheaded)......but I am not a doctor.  I do know that once you get one autoimmune disorder, you can develop more.

Ah....now that the topic has been brought up with the last 6, 7 or so months it has been heavy....I've never had heavy periods.  Can you tell me why you ask?

During a typical period, a woman loses approximately 6 to 8 teaspoons, or 35 mL of blood, although yours may be a little lighter or heavier than this

Menorrhagia, excessive bleeding, can be characterized as an increase iu duration, increased amount or both.

It may be a good idea to get tested for anemia, such as iron deficiency anemia (though fatigue is more commonly a sign than dizziness). 

Common symptoms of general anemia (low red blood cell count) are palpitations, fatigue. But there are no doubt others.

It is a good idea to get your iron and B12 tested since celiac disease is a malabsorption disease, so you may be short on those.  As others say, get the thyroid checked. D3, everything.

If it were me, and I was having dizziness as you say, like you feel you could fall over, I would definitely see my doctor.

    • I can not speak for mushrooms, but I live in California.  Strawberry fields are everywhere.  All the commercial farmers use plastic.  We even pick them ourselves on several farms.  No straw.   What I would be more concerned about is pesticides.  Strawberries are ranked number 1 for the most contamination.  This is one fruit that you might want to eat as organic.   http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/03/10/strawberries-and-these-other-foods-have-most-pesticides/98966374/ Oh, Jane Anderson's postings are well done, but please note that she suffers from DH, so she is extremely conservative on her approach to a gluten free diet (I would be too if I had DH!).   
    • Let me add that this is a "want-be-journalist" who is trying to make a living.  (Kudos for her!).  You will note that she is selling you a few products.  Is it because she genuinely thinks they are the best products on the earth or she's getting compensated?   Want to improve your dry skin?  Get off the low fat craze and eat some good healthy fats and live in a humid climate (that is my non-medical opinion).  Maybe take fewer showers......😆 Hey, I am not knocking the author, Nicole.  My neighbor, a stay-at-home mom, makes a comfortable living submitting articles for online publishing.  She is not an expert in anything per sa y,  but it allows her to work between toddlers napping while she hangs in her PJ's.   She also gets a lot of free products to try.  
    • You don't need gluten-free makeup unless you are going to get it in your mouth.
    • I say piece of mind is priceless.  Why worry?  My foundation (a mineral) is gluten free as is my lipstick,  sunscreen and hand lotion.   I honestly know that I would have to injest a lot of lipstick 💄 in order to get a gluten reaction (per GlutenFreeWatchDog, Trish Thompson).  But I would rather not worry.  I am willing to PAY extra for it.   If a product line does not offer gluten free items, then  I will not buy it.  They lose my business.   Too bad, those companies are losing market share as there are so many people on the gluten free craze bandwagon (lucky for us who seriously have issues with gluten!) So, I am going to plug Red Apple lipstick and Gabriel Lipsticks.  They are certified gluten free.  Piece of mind.  But if you can read the small print in the drugstore without special magnifying glasses (like I need), then buy the other lipstick.  I used to buy some Maybelline (I think), but now I can not read the label and pride prohibits me from pulling out a large magnifying glass in the store (and dang...I am old and save my phone data for my teenage kid so I will not check the website or call while in the store).  And yes, I pick up the house line without bothering to screen the call and I am still alive!
