I did - it took 3 years and 2 different doctors before it was diagnosed. And I sort of diagnosed myself. The first Dr I kept telling her that something was wrong and she wanted to discuss depression which was nonsense as my symptoms were physical - low iron, cold skin etc. After help on this site I started to learn about good levels of vitamins and minerals and thankfully a new Dr was happy to test for them. Eventually I got upset with him and said why was I still feeling bad and why were levels not going up despite taking supplements. I told him that I didn't want to end up like my mum who was Hashi, Coeliac and then Parkinsons. He then had a lightbulb moment and made the genetic connection for Coeliac. Two days later he called to say he had never seen Coeliac antibodies so high
I think there are 4 things that we need to advertise on here
1 - Not everyone with Coeliac has the typical gut issues for Coeliac - I didn't have toilet problems at all. My symptoms were low iron, low D3 and low B12 and generally feeling awful - hair loss, tiredness. Also Dr couldn't get Thyroxin levels right they were gradually being increased every few months. The Drs should have asked themselves why there was a change in levels so frequently.
2 - Genetic Link - When you register with a Dr they ask about family history of heart disease, cancer, glaucoma but they do not ask about auto-immune issues. If the Drs had known that my mother was Coeliac then perhaps they would have tested earlier.
3 - Low iron is a classic "silent" Coeliac symptom. If a patient is referred to a Dietician with low iron they will send them back to the Dr for a Coeliac test.
4 - It can be typical for people to have more than one auto-immune issue so people need to be open to symptoms not being Thyroid issues
I try and mention the possibility of Coeliac in replies to people on here that if someone has low levels and they can't increase them then they need to ask why and ask for Coeliac screening. I just hope that my comment might get someone an earlier answer than I did.
Sadly due to the time it took for my diagnosis my gut was at the severe stage of damage and my bones show osteopenia. I wonder if the bone weakness could have been avoided if I had been diagnosed earlier.
