Just writing as I am thinking could i have CD or a gluten intolerance. From my previous posts in other boards. I have been ill for a number of years. Only recently through private blood tests i have been told i am iron, b12 and folate deficient. The doctor related to diet, and I have been thinking about it more and more i eat chicken every day and don't live a strict vegan/vegetarian diet.
Only questioning CD or gulten intolerence is because my mum and my brother both have CD just recently dx within the last few weeks, and i read on the coeliac website that iron, folate and B12 def can be a side effect of CD.
My doctor is refusing injections for B12 and is refusing anymore blood tests as i have been classed as depressed and anxious and as a result ended up on antidepressants, which i ended up in hospital with due to horrid side effects.
my symptoms are:
-lot of wind
- all anaemias
I know some of these symptoms cross over to my deficiencies, but I am currently fighting these with a very long complaint letter to my GP's.
sorry for such a long post, its just if I have a high risk of CD or gluten intolerance I will have to go privately as my GP has point blank refused to test me for anything else as he says its all in my head. The test will cost me around £140 either through medichecks or blue horizon, i know you can tell me to do it or not just dont waste a lot of money.......
just to add my mum has PA and Chrons and my brother has downs syndrome and an underactive thyroid so I know that CD can come from these dieases, I am trying to rule out PA and underactive thyroid currently
