It is important to get tested for Celiac Disease.
However, the tests are not always reliable.

If the tests show that you do not have celiac disease, still go on the gluten-free diet for at

least two weeks and see if you feel better.
The best way to be sure is to go on the diet.

I was tested for celiac disease and told that I did not have it.
That turned out not to be

true, and the gluten-free diet was the answer.

Do I Have Celiac Disease??!!!!!?

As a person with Celiac Disease, I'd like to help answer your questions.


is it curable? : No, celiac disease is not curable. A 100% gluten free lifestyle is the only treatment.

do i stay at the hospital? : You don't need to be at a hospital at all for it. It's diagnosed through a blood test and an endoscopy (not surgical) which is a procedure they will put you to sleep, and feed a scope into your small intestines to diagnose true celiac disease and any damage it may have caused.

do i get surgery : most likely no, VERY few cases of celiac need surgery and it all depends on the damage that gluten has done to your intestines, I had Celiac for four years before I even knew and I had very little damage that was easily repaired.


will i die?! : No, sweetie, you will not die. It is not THAT kind of disease.


do i not grow? : The only reason you would not grow, is if you do have Celiac, you don't get the nutrients that foods with gluten contain, so you arent getting the correct nutrients you would need to continue growing.


do i get malnutrition? : Malnutrition is kind of overdramatic although many people living with Celiac Disease, are deficient in the nutrients they need. I take a multi vitamin daily, (which you should do either way) to help me and I eat a diet very high in nutrients (fruits and veggies)

Like the person before me said, and gave a VERY good, VERY detailed answer that is extremely helpful to you, I'm sure.


Symptoms of CD vary from person to person.


Talk to your mom and your primary doctor about getting tested for it.


It's difficult but I felt really similar to how youre feeling before I was diagnosed.


Nobody could figure out why i was having these symptoms and nobody could figure out what was causing them, I was tested for damn near everything before finally, my doctor decided to test me for Celiac.


If I were you, I'd just ask your doctor about it. Maybe look around on the internet at Webmd or the Mayo Clinic at the different symptoms that celiac disease cause.


Its a difficult lifestyle to get used to, but let me tell you, i feel SO much better now that I am gluten free. It's hard at times but its easier now than it was ten years ago, because SO many things are gluten free.


Hope you feel better, honey.

Poor nutrition is probably the origin of many thyroid problems (including low thyroid), and rich nutrition is vital to reversing them, or at least to prevent further decline. Learn here https://tr.im/xDAyn

Healthy thyroid function depends on a range of nutrients, especially selenium, folic acid, and iodine. Since most people cannot optimize levels of these nutrients through diet alone, a medical?grade supplement is vital. Of course, supplements should be used to complement, not substitute, for a balanced diet.

Stress in all it?s forms is another key culprit of thyroid dysfunction. Most of us experience a high degree of the most damaging kind ? unremitting stress. It is important for hypothyroid treatment to identify the stressors you face and learn techniques and activities that can help you reduce your stress.

Symptoms of celiac disease vary from person to person. Symptoms may occur in the digestive system or in other parts of the body. Digestive symptoms are more common in infants and young children and may include

abdominal bloating and pain

chronic diarrhea

vomiting

constipation

pale, foul-smelling, or fatty stool

weight loss

Irritability is another common symptom in children. Malabsorption of nutrients during the years when nutrition is critical to a child?s normal growth and development can result in other problems such as failure to thrive in infants, delayed growth and short stature, delayed puberty, and dental enamel defects of the permanent teeth.

Adults are less likely to have digestive symptoms and may instead have one or more of the following:

unexplained iron-deficiency anemia

fatigue

bone or joint pain

arthritis

bone loss or osteoporosis

depression or anxiety

tingling numbness in the hands and feet

seizures

missed menstrual periods

infertility or recurrent miscarriage

canker sores inside the mouth

an itchy skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis

People with celiac disease may have no symptoms but can still develop complications of the disease over time. Long-term complications include malnutrition?which can lead to anemia, osteoporosis, and miscarriage, among other problems?liver diseases, and cancers of the intestine.

Why are celiac disease symptoms so varied?

Researchers are studying the reasons celiac disease affects people differently. The length of time a person was breastfed, the age a person started eating gluten-containing foods, and the amount of gluten-containing foods one eats are three factors thought to play a role in when and how celiac disease appears. Some studies have shown, for example, that the longer a person was breastfed, the later the symptoms of celiac disease appear.

Symptoms also vary depending on a person?s age and the degree of damage to the small intestine. Many adults have the disease for a decade or more before they are diagnosed. The longer a person goes undiagnosed and untreated, the greater the chance of developing long-term complications.

What other health problems do people with celiac disease have?

People with celiac disease tend to have other diseases in which the immune system attacks the body?s healthy cells and tissues. The connection between celiac disease and these diseases may be genetic. They include

type 1 diabetes

autoimmune thyroid disease

autoimmune liver disease

rheumatoid arthritis

Addison?s disease, a condition in which the glands that produce critical hormones are damaged

Sjögren?s syndrome, a condition in which the glands that produce tears and saliva are destroyed

How common is celiac disease?

Celiac disease affects people in all parts of the world. Originally thought to be a rare childhood syndrome, celiac disease is now known to be a common genetic disorder. More than 2 million people in the United States have the disease, or about 1 in 133 people.1 Among people who have a first-degree relative?a parent, sibling, or child?diagnosed with celiac disease, as many as 1 in 22 people may have the disease.2

Celiac disease is also more common among people with other genetic disorders including Down syndrome and Turner syndrome, a condition that affects girls? development.

1Fasano A, Berti I, Gerarduzzi T, et al. Prevalence of celiac disease in at-risk and not-at-risk groups in the United States. Archives of Internal Medicine. 2003;163(3):268?2

How is celiac disease diagnosed?

Recognizing celiac disease can be difficult because some of its symptoms are similar to those of other diseases. Celiac disease can be confused with irritable bowel syndrome, iron-deficiency anemia caused by menstrual blood loss, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticulitis, intestinal infections, and chronic fatigue syndrome. As a result, celiac disease has long been underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed. As doctors become more aware of the many varied symptoms of the disease and reliable blood tests become more available, diagnosis rates are increasing.

Blood Tests

People with celiac disease have higher than normal levels of certain autoantibodies?proteins that react against the body?s own cells or tissues?in their blood. To diagnose celiac disease, doctors will test blood for high levels of anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies (tTGA) or anti-endomysium antibodies (EMA). If test results are negative but celiac disease is still suspected, additional blood tests may be needed.

Before being tested, one should continue to eat a diet that includes foods with gluten, such as breads and pastas. If a person stops eating foods with gluten before being tested, the results may be negative for celiac disease even if the disease is present.

Intestinal Biopsy

If blood tests and symptoms suggest celiac disease, a biopsy of the small intestine is performed to confirm the diagnosis. During the bio

Celiac sickness is regularly inherited. It is a genetic, and is precipitated by means of an occasion in a single's lifestyles, reminiscent of an ailment, strain, being pregnant, divorce, and so forth. It can kick in at any factor in a single's lifestyles, and will have signs, or it will possibly haven't any visible signs. With or with out signs, celiacs does harm to 1's small gut, inflicting malnutrition and a protracted record of alternative disorders. There is not any identified remedy at the moment instead of a gluten unfastened nutrition, which takes a little of labor, however could be very plausible. I have 2 youngsters with celiacs, and they're completely satisfied, healthful and thriving at the GF nutrition.
