Gluten Pooting

I’ll be spending my birthday fasting and cleansing for a colonoscopy and an endoscopic biopsy of my small intestine to test for celiac disease.

It’s with a mixture of emotions that I approach this possibly life changing event. I want answers as to why I’ve had a slew of health problems since 2008:

colitis

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

Gas

Bloating

Alternating diarrhea and constipation

Weight Gain

inflamed Gums

Depression

Mood swings

Stomach aches

Thyroid problems

Premenopausal symptoms

Brain fog

Fatigue

And worse of all a rash that now covers most of my arms and legs and is contentiously spreading

Celiac disease is an anti-immune disorder where the body can’t break down gluten. The only cure is a drastic change of diet that eliminates all foods containing gluten.

Friday is when I learn my fate.
