I have had more and more digestion problems over the past few years. Everything I eat seems to upset my stomach. I started cutting things out of my diet that I know have an affect on me. I no longer consume nuts (especially pint nuts) or any dairy products. I stick with Lactaid milk and occasionally soy (although I try to avoid it as much as I can due to my strong family history of breast cancer).
Then I noticed that I seemed to have trouble digesting seeds (poppy seeds, strawberries, tomatoes, etc). I still have had problems that make me uncomfortable throughout the day and keep me awake at night. I have also looked into ulcer symptoms since I have many similar characteristics.
I recently started researching gluten and celiac disease. Gluten is one thing I have not yet cut out of my diet. The more and more I read about celiac disease, the more I think I might have it, but cutting out gluten? Crazy. There is so much you don't even realize that has gluten in it.
Does anyone have any suggestions? What is the best way to get tested for celiac disease?
