  1. Thank you all for your replies! It's so interesting to see the different stories and how differently it presented in each person!
  2. Thank you so much for your reply. Sorry to hear you haven't experienced much improvement wrt your symptoms. I think a lot of us underestimate the toll that work stress can take on our bodies... I am particularly interested to see if my anxiety and depression are related to Celiac's (although I don't really think a gluten-free diet will completely eliminate them). I hope you have found a job that is a better fit for you in terms of health
  3. I totally get the excitement. The more I read about celiac's the more I think: "oh my god! That thing could also be related?!?!" My brother keeps telling me I'm being too dramatic with my gluten avoidance (because I'm concerned about cross-contamination...) but I really want to see how things change if I am very strict, otherwise I will always wonder about it. I've only been gluten-free for a week or so and my bloating and constipation are already so much better (despite being on some hardcore iron supplements 3x a day!) Amanda
  4. Thanks for your reply! I'm happy to hear so many issues cleared up. It's funny how many things we attribute to something else... I stopped eating gluten after my first blood test since my doctor said it could be months before I got a biopsy (I'm in the UK) and that given my deficiencies he felt it would be irresponsible to tell me to keep eating gluten even though it was the official guidance. I was off-gluten for 2-3 weeks and then I had to start it again ahead of my second blood test... oof!! I suddenly felt like I had the flu (minus the fever). I couldn't believe I'd been dealing with that
  5. Newly diagnosed celiac I was diagnosed this month at 29. The diagnosis was quite a surprise since I was always told celiacs were scrawny and short and had constant diarrhoea (and indeed the only three celiacs I have met are quite underweight). I am very tall and a bit overweight (and have pretty much always been) and have had some GI issues but more often constipation and indigestion, which I always thought was "normal". I also tended to eat more gluten when I was eating more sweets so I blamed feeling unwell on the high fat/high sugar foods. In January I went to see my doctor because I
  6. Hey Ellawells, I'm in the UK too (Scotland) - just diagnosed a couple of weeks ago. My doctor sent me for a test after we found out I had hypothyroidism and a bunch of nutrient deficiencies, then I was referred to gastro for the endoscopy but they said my levels were high enough (I don't know the actual number) that they would give me an official diagnosis without the biopsy if I tested positive again. The NHS are testing my brother now, just based on my test, so you should be able to get your mum tested for celiac's without a genetic test.
