  1. I had DVT in both legs which was found 'accidently'. I was on Coumadin for 18 months. I have had every test to figure out why I got DVT and they r stumped. I am sure I mentioned that i had Celiac and they tested me and it was negative. I have had D-deficiency for last year and anemia. I am thinking this is all related. I am seeing a new GI dr on Wed and I plan to tell him my story and I hope he does an endoscopy and finds out for sure about Celiac - DVT connection! Thank you for sharing your story!
  2. Hi! I am new to this forum I just registered today! Here is my story I was diagnosed with Celiac as a baby back in the 70's. Dr's did a biopsy to diagnose me back then i am told. I was on strict diet then gradually introduced to gluten - PASTA and Bread- and was not getting as sick so my parents felt i had 'outgrown' it. So for 30 something yrs now I have been eating gluten regularly. Well I have had so many issues with my stomach, arthritis, strange rashes, constipation, weight gain, fatigue for years and doctors always told me it was anxiety and it was all in my head. I did always mention that i had celiac as a baby, so you think this would have been a red flag to them? ANyway back in 2007 I go to hospital thinking i had a stroke b/c i could not move my left leg - I had foot drop and they FOUND that i had Multiple DVT's in BOTH my legs ( I did not have symptoms of blood clots they found them 'accidently'. turns out it was not a STroke (MRI's showed no Stroke) and they were stumped for 2 yrs as to why I got these clots! trust me they did genetic testing, lupus, tons of tests and nothing came up. They did eventually give me Celiac blood test but it came back negative so they don't believe I was diagnosed with celiac back in the day. Well after reading a book on Celiac, I really think its possible DVT is related to Celiac. I am going to a GI dr on Wed for the first time in my adult yrs and i am hoping that does an Endoscopy to see for sure that I have Celiac and to see what damage I done to my body. I have been feeling AWFUL lately and i know it has to be because of Gluten. Has anyone else ever had blood clot issues that has Celiac? Thank you.
