Celiac Disease Symptoms is a Wide Range

by Nancy Olson on April 9, 2011

 Did you know Celiac disease symptoms is well over 300!

Celiac disease symptoms can fell like it is

taking over your life.

Celiac disease is hard to diagnose because many of the symptoms of Celiac disease similar to many other illnesses. I believe it is your responsibility to tell the doctor to test for Celiac disease to prevent further damage to your body.

Celiac disease symptoms in adults is a wide range and has noted over 300 symptoms.  Celiac disease symptoms can be different for everyone and some people will have only a couple of symptoms and some will experience several symptoms.

Let’s look together at some of the Celiac disease symptoms in adults. Some symptoms can be confusing, and that is why I recommend to get tested. I also recommend to test your children for Celiac and gluten allergy.

This is just a few Celiac disease symptoms.

  • fast weight loss
  • headaches and migraines
  • low energy
  • sore muscles and joints
  • upset stomach
  • bloating and gas
  • female issues of any sort
  • concentration issues
  • malnutrition
  • seizures
  • infertility
  • sleeping issues
  • depression
  • wheat allergy

In my 17 years of fighting for my health I did not have the exact answers. I wish I was more aware of what to do. Unless you ask your medical professional for help, you may not know that you have this disease. I have learned to do research on my own, ask question and then more research.  After I had gathered more information I went to my doctor.  That visit with my doctor I said “I have been researching Celiac disease symptoms and treatment and would like to be tested”  That was my answer!

Celiac disease symptoms in women can be astonishing.  From hormonal issues, PMS, irregular cycles and mood swings can bring the devastating news to women-infertility! I personally recommend to every woman  who is struggling to get pregnant to get tested as soon as possible.

To find out if you have Celiac I personally would suggest for you to get blood tests done and a biopsy of the small intestines to confirm the the damage. Start with the test, and then go to the diet.  Reason for that is you may never get a correct reading of the test if you have been gluten free so get tested prior to the test.  Now if the test results don’t mean much to you which it doesnt to some people if they start feeling better it is worth the diet change.  I often see people go gluten free if they are having a lot of the Celiac disease symptoms and don’t have insurance or the money to get tested.

I was diagnosed with Celiac’s disease at the beginning of 2011. Before that I would eat anything and everything and can’t seem to stop. I’ve had very severe stomach pains and lots of other pain in my abdominal area for a long time. I try so hard to eat properly because of the fear the doctor has put into me, but get so darn frustrated. I try to bake bread but seem to mess it up. If I get it right then it goes bad quickly. It’s like I can’t seem to maintaina healthy diet and enjoy food. I have no patience for making “everything” that I eat and no will power. I’m 238 pounds and 5’8″ tall and way overweight according to the BMI index. Living in a remote region in Alaska makes it a bit incovenient to buy gluten-free products without bartering a seal and a whale for shipping. So… I . I dont know how much longer I can keep this up. I constantly say to myself that I’ve been eating this way for 41 years and have been miserable for just about that long that why does it matter if I’m gluten free? It’s an everyday struggle with myself and I really have no support groups except what’s online.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.

I have just recently become aware of Celiac because of an old school friend that suffers from it. I never before gave Gluten a second thought, or even knew what it was. Thank you so much for sharing your information in this disease and for sharing your story, tips, and advice. I am sharing your site with her immediately.
Warm regards,
Rod

Thanks Rod! When I was told to go gluten free I had no clue what that was and when they said you have Celiac disease I was like what? How do you spell that? Can you say that again? I was totally clueless, now sharing what I have learned!

I’ve just heard about Celiac disease in the past few months. I don’t believe anyone in my immediate family has many allergies (i.e. wheat) but you are right stating all those symptoms could be so many things.

Bookmarking your site for further research if needed. Thanks!

Rob Thanks for stopping by. Yes, Celiac disease is being talked about more now than it has been in the past. You never know when you will need to look back at this site or reffer a friend. Thanks

I was just told that I may have celieac disease. I have to see a specialist who may do the biopsy to get an accurate diagnosis. How is it that I have lived for 32 years, had 3 children, and struggle with my weight (being overweight) and never had any symptoms? It was a fluke that they found it, because of some thyroid and vitiman d deficiancies that I have… I’m just cofused… If I have had NO symptoms, I’m not sure why I should change things? I understand that there could be some problems later on in life, and maybe I just need to do some more research, but in the meantime, I’m sitting here saying ‘HUH?’.

Acually this is very common but in most cases the patient will never be told because the doctors often times don’t think of Celiac just for those reasons you stated. Most often doctors only check if the patient complains most often of digestive issues. My guess would be in your case because you could have the silent symptoms meaning you feel fine the other health issues such as weight and thyroid issues and nutritional issues were all due to the fact of Celiac disease or an issue with gluten. Problem with making no changes to the diet is that your health issue will increase over time.
