If you suspect celiac disease and/or have biological relatives with celiac disease, you must continue to eat gluten until you have been formally diagnosed. Make an appointment with a gastroenterologist, get your blood tested for antibodies, and if positive, ask for an endoscopy to take a sample of the small intestine. This should be done under the guidance of a gastroenterologist.

The symptoms are similar to I.B.S.irritable bowel disease. Constant and urgent trips to the lavatory & usually foul smelling motions. Painful abdomen, with swelling for some people. A feeling of being run-down & lacking energy.

Get tested by a doctor if you have any dietary or health issues related to eating food like bread, pasta or cereals.

If you have been having symptoms that include diarrhea, upset stomach, constipation, or other symptoms that could indicate malabsorption, see your doctor and based on your medical history your doctor may prescribe a celiac panel test.
