Re: Celiacs causing extreme anemia symptoms, is this likely?
Celiac disease can cause severe anemia and malabsorption of other vitamins, minerals. It is good your Dr. thought to check for it. Some celiac patients have NO GI symptoms, just anemia and iron and other deficiencies. If the tests come back negative, it would be good to try to figure out why the anemia? Heavy periods? Poor diet with little iron intake? Hopefully the blood count and iron stores come back to normal with treatment. If celiac tests are positive, you will get some good help on the boards with the diet required, etc.
