Celiac disease is an allergy to Gluten (in flour) and my mother has suffered from it since she was in her twenties.  I feel so bad for her
She cannot eat anything with flower, including noodles, bread, cookies, crackers, candy bars everything!
This is a rare disease and I have yet to get diagnosed though it is hereditary. It is hard to diagnose due to its many varying symptoms. I can get it at any time.
Does anyone else suffer from this? 
If so I was just wondering how old you were when diagnosed.

I'm currently in the process of getting a diagnosis for my health problems and celiac is on the list of possibilities. I had blood work done yesterday, but have heard it's not always accurate. I have an appt with a GI doc Sept 9 so I'll know more, or at least know what other tests they plan for me. Would be very interested to hear other stories.

Now possibly even celiacs disease!Lots of tests coming up so hopefully I'll know more soon. Too many meds to list!

You might want to ask this question on our other forums such as the Crohns, IBS or Ulcerative Colitis forums. They might have more info on this matter there.
