Thank you Alan,these aren't all my problems but there in the family my sister her son and grandson are confirmed celiac,my dad suffered for years with ulcers my son and 2 sister's have hiatus hernia and I've always had stomach problems that i now know could be celiac or wheat intolerance, I only made the connection while researching my autoimmune hashimotos I also have arthritis. I read you're recent post I'm sorry you're suffering so much I hope the tablets are helping take care.

Hi! If you remove the gluten from your diet, your biopsy might be negative.
