Re: At a loss... Celiac disease?!?

I've had celiac disease for 16 years that I know of. and I've been to a lot of support group meetings. There is a simple blood test for celiac disease that would put your mind at ease, one way or the other. I wouldn't go on the gluten free diet unless I'd had that test and knew for sure I had celiac disease. The gluten free diet works miracles for those who have the disease, but it's expensive and a lot of trouble. In other words get the blood test and quit wondering. Your doctor would have to order it, but with all those symptoms he/she probably would.
