Welcome but I want to shout "There Is No Pattern"!!!
Only a small percentage display the underweight symptom. So don't be fooled by that.
I have been gluten free for 27 years. From my experience, it is very important to see your doctor immediately and have the tests done. If they are positve, your doctor has the information needed for your care. If they are negative, you may be gluten intolerant, not celiac, and should still follow the gluten free diet given that you have both experienced improvements!
If you go more than a couple of weeks, the test results may be negative and you will not know for sure. This affects your medical care and your attitude to being 100% gluten free.
Whether Celiac or Gluten Intolerant, it is very important to keep 100% adherance to a gluten free diet.
A wealth of information is posted on this forum. Please take the time to read past. Remember, each person's experience and opinion is different as to which foods they find either benefical or can't eat.
Good Luck, Barb
