I was once diagnosed with IBS. Decades later, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. My only symptom at the time was anemia. I had eliminated my GI issues by eliminating some foods, but not gluten. Celiac disease can be silent, systemic issues (rash, neurological, etc.) or have GI issues. Not all celiacs are wasting away from severe malnutrition. Know too that just checking for antibodies is not enough as some 10% of celiacs are seronegative. Celiac disease can be triggered at any age.
