Fatigue is the #1 sympton of celiac disease. Anemia is right up there too. If your villi are damaged then you are not absorbing all the iron and other supplements.

Chasefamily, Hi and welcome. :) The first thing to do when you are diagnosed with Celiac is immediately begin a gluten-free diet and stick to it for the rest of your life. That is the only way the symptoms will stop and your body will begin to heal. WHen and how were you diagnosed? Have you started a gluten-free diet yet? It is hard in the beginning but it does get easier, I promise!

Most people have the common GI probs such as:

diarrhea

nausea

weight loss

abdominal pain

cramps

etc...

and yes anemia can be a symptom too for some people. I personally do not have a problem with anemia but I have always bruised easily. Maybe someone else will be along soon to answer your questions.

Here is a link about Celiac symptoms:

thanks for the quick reply. I have been to several doctors over the last few years for multiple problems. I see a hemotologists regulary for Essential thrombytosis and low ferritin level, plus severe bruising, I have been going ther since 1997, I was having bleeding problems and had to have emergency hysterectomy because I wouldn;t stop bleeding ever since that I have had problems with my iron count and have been on and off of iron medication since 97 but still bruise alot and always tired, I reciently went to a GI doctor for acid reflux problems and food coming back into my esophagus and he is the one who thought I might have celiac disease after reading all of my medical info. I am scheduled to have endoscopy the end of this moneth but he did not tell me to start a gluten free diet yet?

Hi Chase family and welcome!

I would advise you not to go gluten free until the

Endoscopy is done. If you start to eat gluten

free now it will affect your biopsy and blood

test. Have you had the blood test yet? My

GI doc did a celiac panel, I tested Neg for

the gene but positive for the IgA (75). I was

retested in 6 mos, my level is still somewhat

elevated. My doc said to try foods again one

by one to see how I react, I did this but

found I still cannot tolerate wheat or dairy.

My advice to you is to keep a journal of

what you consume as you will probably have

some "gluten accidents" from time to time.

Try to learn as much as you can about

this disease because my doc told me to

avoid wheat, rye, oats, and distilled vinegar!(DUH)

Get in the habit of readin all the labels, at first

it seems overwhelming. Try to come to this website

every day. There are plenty of people ready

to help you. Hope this helps.

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,
