    Welcome! Please do not freak out. It is a lot to take in. First, you probably do have celiac disease. You tested positive on four celiac blood tests. The small intestine is vast. Like bigger than a tennis court. If you...

    Thanks, cyclinglady. I have read your story on here. I went gluten free immediately on the advice of my youngest son's allergist too. Honestly though, I think if I relied on testing, and it all came back negative (which I suspect it would...

    My daughter had a single weak positive blood test and there was visible damage observed when she had the endoscopy. Biopsies confirmed celiac disease. The blood results are not always a direct reflection of the degree of damage.

    I have been gluten free since being diagnosed with celiac about 20 years ago (I'm 66 years old). I have headaches about 5 nights a week. They wake me up after sleeping about 4 or 5 hours. I've been to a neurologist and have been told that...
