My sister was a manager at Subway. She'd consistently told me she did NOT have celiac, despite me seeing symptoms in her. After working at Subway for a couple of months, she had rheumatoid arthritis in her hands so severely her hands were utterly deformed. I repeatedly told her it was kneading dough and making bread daily and she repeatedly blew me off. When it got to where she could no longer use her hands, she quit. Within 6 months of leaving Subway, she no longer needed methotrexate or injections for her hands. Today, several years later, her hands are as normal as they will ever get. Two fingers are permanently crippled but she no longer is treated for RA-- and has been told it was celiac.
