Hi ladies

Compared to the symptoms I have been reading on this board my husband's symptoms are VERY minor

This all started because of my son who was having problems

After keeping a food diary it seemed like he was reacting to wheat..he had b/w and stool culture which came back normal but since he is under 2..I have him on a gluten-free diet as an experiment (it's only been a few days)

I then put 2 and 2 together because my husband rarely eats pasta...when he does he knows he'll be in the bathroom..he actually eats pasta on purpose if he is constipated

BUT he will have some diahrea/cramps/gas, doesn't seem to bother him too much and it passes

His weight is fine, works FT, active (he is tired a lot but he snores like heck at night and we have 2 small kids)

His symptoms don't seem nearly as serious as some on the board...should I urge him to have a blood test?

Could things get worse...no one in our families that we know of has celiac disease

Does this wound more like an intolernace

Thanks, Kim

Hi there...new to the board but not new to the reasons to be here....have him tested by all means....if not just for peace of mind. Education is the best tool anyone can have. It can only make everyone (including you) feel better.

Good luck to all of you!

Kim- I went years with this disease not knowing I had it. I only wish I knew sooner. I would strongly urge your husband to go get the blood test. I am 35 and the doc thinks I have 10 years damage to my small intestine (have no idea how she knows that). I do know that healing is slow coming because of the damage.

I, like your husband was tired (but I am a stay at home Mom, who isn't exhausted) and would have occasional d. But other than that I felt fine. At least until November. That is when I had the dreaded "d" all the time! I could hardly get through the day, I was so tired. My weight started to come off (I was small already). After a month of feeling bad I went to the doctor. By April I had a firm diagnosis. If I had known sooner I would not have done so much damage to myself.

Yes, things could possibly get worse for your husband. It did for me. It is only a blood test and the alternative of doing nothing is far worse (if something is wrong). Hope this helps! Hez

    • these sound like celiac reactions  yes   ... basically avoid anything that causes the reaction   always and find your self a great natural practitioner and   rebuild  your body .. Rest vitamins digestive enzymes and very strict diet  Good Luck
    • Hey guys im from the UK and this site is really helpful for me. I've been diagnosed with Coeliac disease (uk spelling) for 5 years now and I slowly became dairy intolerant, which makes sense and I live with this now... but now alcohol has turned on me.  I don't drink often and I don't drink a lot (I used to in my uni years) but the reaction the next day (or same night) is horrific.  I wondered if anyone else had this problem.  I start with sweats and dizziness , then the stomach cramps cause chronic diarrhoea ... I then start to vomit until my body is empty .... this isn't the bad part. After my body is empty I go into a fit like state and cannot move walk talk or anything... the cold sweats start but I'm burning up. The stomach spasms are awful, I have to lie in bed flat with cold wet towels on my head and belly. I cannot speak or move for hours and feel so weak and unstable ..: this lasts all day and I can't eat or drink anything but I don't feel myself for three or four days. I avoid drinking but sometimes it's nice to go out and have some... am I alcohol intolerant??!! Does anyone else have this!?  I obviously stick to gluten free drinks and have a very strict diet! Im a severe case!  Thankyoy  steph 
    • I'm going to contact my primary Dr and see what his take is on this.  I know I can't wait another 4 weeks to go to my gastroenterologist.  Today marks day 23 of diarrhea.  Since switching back to Imodium it has gotten worse.  I think that the other 2 medications, even though I couldn't tolerate them and they didn't stop the diarrhea, at least slowed it down a little.  If my primary has no clue, then I am definitely contacting U of C.  The only thing stopping me is that they are out of network for my insurance plan so it would be more costly. 
    • Spring is cherry blossom season, which means that actual cherries are still far enough off that we'll have to leave their deliciousness ahead, and turn to their canned cousins for this recipe. Turns out, that's not a bad thing. Canned cherries make a tasty cornerstone to this super quick, super-easy no-bake cheesecake. Topped with lovely cherries, this no-bake cheesecake is a contender. Enjoy! View the full article
