How do you know if you have celiac disease without being tested?
Question by Julia: How do you know if you have celiac disease without being tested?
I might have it. Or it could just be a gluten allergy. I’m not puking and my skin doesn’t change color. I do get the rash though
Answer by River
Celiac disease is often accompanied by a rash. And, this rash is symmetrical. That is, look for a symmetrical rash on your body.
Not all people with celiac disease get it, and no one has it all the time, but it is still one way to determine if you have it.
Also, with celiac disease, rather than just a gluten sensitivity, you will have weight changes. Some people gain, most people lose. But, there *will* be ongoing weight changes if you have it. You will continue to lose or gain over time regardless of your dietary habits.
