Coeliac Symptoms In Adults
In Celiac disease the body reacts to gluten (in wheat and gluten like proteins in rye and barley) in the small intestine causing damage. This limits the intestine's ability to absorb some nutrients.

I have lots of symptoms that point to coeliac. 3 members of my family have it but my blood tests keep coming back negative. I do think that I have it, what should I do?
Consider biopsy: With the strong family history, your gastroenterologist may be willing to do the biopsy and ask the pathologist to count lymphocytes.

Celiac disease: Also called gluten intolerance or gluten-sensitive enteropathy is a disease in which the villi of the small intertines are damaged by an abnormal immune response to a grain protein (gluten) present in wheat, rye, barley and oats. Damage to villi results in malabsorbtion of nutrients and result in belly pain, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, wgt. Loss, poor growth, dermatitis herpetiformis & more. ...Read more
Usually diarrhea: Celiac disease, among its many manifestations, may result in diarrhea. Simplistically, exposure of intestine to gluten causes inflammation of affected gut lining, with a decrease in absorptive surface of that gut, & resulting malabsorption of food. The best & most enduring fix is to avoid eating gluten. Serum tissue transglutaminase antibody can help determine how successfully gluten is avoided. ...Read more
