Is there a thread on this site related to Celiac Disease?
I haven't "officially" been diagnosed with this but I sure feel like I have it after all the reading up I did on the topic.
Gluten-intolerance is basically what it is.
I have been to my doctor and all he can say is simply go on a gluten-free diet to narrow the possibilites.
Thing is I can't tell if it's just an ulcer or the actual celiac disease that is making me lose weight and have the worst GERD reactions.
I can do a blood test to test for Celiac but it's about $700. Sheeeeeesh!
I look horrible, my hair is growing out all uneven and I get chills in my hands and feet every now and then. I've explained all this to my doc, but I think he's a bit old fashioned and not up with nutritional/food allergies and diseases.
I guess I should just get a new doc.
Try the "Digestive Disorders" board. Do a "board search" on the top each page by typing in celiac, and use the drop down menu on the "all boards" box to highlight the digestive disorders board, you will be directed to threads that have info. about Celiac disease. Good luck in your search.
