First of all, sorry for posting without a diagnosis. I am in another community here (breast cancer) and it annoys me a little when people just post scares before actually going to the doctor or anything. Maybe I am just grumpy.
I am already lactose intolerant (and vegetarian), so I am really not looking forward to adding another restriction to my diet. Definitely not thinking of this as a diet or lifestyle choice.
I have had some gut symptoms (pain, diarrhea, gas) for a few weeks now and I am just thinking of this because I do have people with celiac disease in my family and a genetic marker even showed up on my 23andme results. Anyone here with variants detected in the HLA-DQA1 gene?
I know the right answer is to just go talk to my doctor etc. I am just a little rebellious because of previous experiences in healthcare🙄.
In summary, I want to try to cut gluten on my own to see if anything improves. If you have done that I would love to read about it. Thanks!
