Symptoms range for everybody Miss Divine. You can be gluten sensitive or gluten intolerant. You can benefit or feel better on gf diet either way despite test results (docs start with blood labs and then may do an endoscopy - where they go down your throat for a sm. intestinal biopsy). It's good you are doing homework, but please talk to your doctor before changing anything.

I suggest you read our stories from the Intro threads and then visit a few websites we have suggested in the Resources thread.

The more I research this problem with gluten, the more wide-reaching its implications for our society. Your nutrition is the crux of your health basically. Celiac is a disease of malabsorption of nutrients. But gluten can affect people who test negative for celiac (those in the autism spectrum for example).

My symptoms were constipation then it gradually, over years, changed to going after every meal. I had headaches 1x/month then they over the years gradually worked to at least 4x/week. Eczema, insomnia, depression, restless legs, clenching my teeth at night from stress, anxiety, fibromyagia, chronic fatigue, ADD, memory issues/dementia/couldn't think/brain fog, hypothyroidism to name a few. No gut pains. Symptoms did not get better after hypothyroidism diagnosis and on thyroid hormone. They did clear up or get extremely better on gf diet.

What are the symptoms of celiac disease?

"In everything you do, youíre going to hit a wall, where youíre exhausted, frustrated, and you just want to quitÖ
Itís what you do after that moment that makes the difference.
When you want to give up, itís not about fitness, itís about character.
Pride. Commitment. Excellence."
