What symptom got you diagnosed?

Hello everyone!

I just did blood work to test for celiac. I have a biopsy scheduled in two weeks. As I wait for the results, I find myself thinking about so many questions.

What was the symptom that got you diagnosed? I am not talking about your own analysis such as gas, bloating, pain, etc...because those symptoms can be caused by so many things. What I am wondering is what really concerned the doctor enough to test for celiac?

Thank you for your response!

Wheat and gluten giving me diarrhea and an extreme intolerance to fructose.  This duet is almost exclusive to celiac disease.

Well, already some friends suggested some symptoms that cause Celiac Disease. Here are some other symptoms
Diarrhea, either constant or off and on
Nausea and vomiting
Stools that are foul smelling, oily, or and stick to the toilet when flushed
Easy bruising
Growth delays in children
Mouth ulcers
Muscle cramps and joint pain
Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet
Unexplained short height

Apart from that if you suspect that you have such Celiac Disease problem then you may try Natural remedy like "Aloe Vera" (also available in "Lean N Clean" store as Powder) as primary treatments.
