hi all...first post in gluten free guerrillas. I have been eating wheat/gluten free since March this year. I was tested for celiac In march also, but they came back negative. though the doctor never told me to eat gluten prior to the test...so the test now isn't guaranteed. I'm going for a gastroscopy soon so hopefully find out soon. Anyway I went to get a food allergy test done at a health centre and it came back as wheat. so I basically follow a gluten free diet now. if I eat anything with wheat at all I get awfully sick.
my question is i am deficient in b12 at the momemt, hair falling out etc. I've explored many routes of what could be the cause but I find myself questioning celiac again. it was my original idea but then thought not. I take b12 injections every other day and I feel a lot better but something is missing. I fasted for 2 days and although I felt hungry I felt well. I just ate for the first time and feel sleepy again.
so can I be celiac even though I am already following a strict gluten free? surely if I was celiac them I would already be feeling better because I am gluten free and have b12 to help my b12 levels. eating always messes me up even if it is 100 gluten free.... any ideas?
sorry for the long post thank you for reading
