i have a question

is it possible to have adult onset celiac disease? i made a post already in the lyme topic and the rheumatolgy one. i was trying to figure whats going on with me. my main complaints are joint pain/swelling, muscle pain, carpal tunnel, muscle twitching, fatigue , headaches, ear stuffiness, hoarse voice etc. no stomach problems other than bloating which i have always had since age 16 or so. my blood test showed positive ana 1:16 a gene HLA-b27 and one mildly elevated liver enzyme, along with low level of protein. the chronic pain has been since age 26 and im 28. im trying to save money so if i can try this diet i want to see if it helps me.

Yes it is possible to have adult-onset Celiac.

If you have Lyme, most experts agree a gluten-free diet can be very helpful for reducing symptoms and improving recovery. Note that Lyme has been known to cause a false positive ANA...

If you have Lupus or another similar autoimmune disorder (and some believe chronic infections can cause such disorders), it is also a good idea to go gluten-free...

Gluten proteins promote inflammation even in those who do not have Celiac Disease.

Chronic Lyme, Bart., Gluten & Sulfite Sensitivity, Many Food/Inhalant/Medication/Chemical Allergies & Intolerances, Asthma, Gut dysmotility & non-specific inflammation, Lupus, Osteoporosis, etc.; G-Tube; TPN-dependent
Meds: Flagyl, Cefazolin, Zofran, Essential Oils, etc.
