Just wondering if you all have been officially diagnosed with Celiac or gluten intolerance? Although new to hearing about both, I've been through years of suffering through what I thought was IBS (which grew to be almost debilitating). Last year, I was hospitalized with A Fib, found to be due to hyperthyroidism, Graves Disease. In the past, I've been told I have osteoprosis, suffered with another autoimmune disease called sarcoidosis in the 1980's.
I've been a binge eater and stuffed carbs for years, off and on. When I ate low carb I did feel better. After discovering CD info, a light went on and I'm almost sure I am gluten intolerant, at least. I have been eating GF for about 3 weeks. I just read that a blood test can tell me most likely if I have CD, but I have to be eating gluten.
I'm away from home and my regular doctor until April, so my plan is to talk to him and ask for tests then. I understand that I will be asked to eat bread for a while. I am going to have a colonoscopy then as well and thought about asking to have the biopsy to test for CD.
Wondering what others have done and if you would have any suggestions. I already feel much better after being GF for a few weeks. I am not using immonium as a way to get out of the house nearly as much.
Thanks for reading and looking forward to hearing your stories. Please email me, if you like.
