I am a 21-year old female student from England, I am wondering if I am celiac or merely gluten sensitive. When I am alone, buying food for myself I buy fruit, veg, fish, milk, eggs. I never buy bread, pasta or cereals. Gluten is not something I have aknowledged up to now. But when I am around other people I do eat these foods, I like the taste and the texture of them and afterall they are normal foods.
But I alwasy have
acid reflux & indigestion
bowel pains followed by diarrhea (usually after bread)
or constipation (pasta and others)
hangover like feeling
To be honest I thought a lot of other people had this and I was just less tolerent to pain and keeping my irritability and depression at bay.
In the past I have been to the doctor about my depression and joint aches. I have been tested to be negative to rhumatoid arthritus. While I have an underactive thyroid that is active enough to be not classed as abnormal, I changed my diet which was a vegan one (ethical reasons) to include fish and dairy.
Now I work out a bit and some days (perhaps the days after I've eaten gluten, but dairy might play a role too) I cannot work out as long and it is much more difficult even though I should have the energy. Any advice helpful
