Did you know that there are over 200 symptoms of Celiac Disease?
Here's everything you need to know about Celiac Disease and helpful resources for your gluten free journey!
I find it super interesting hearing stories from other people with Celiac Disease on how their bodies respond after exposure to gluten because each experience is unique!
I personally get gastrointestinal symptoms, abdominal pain, as well as extreme immediate fatigue, speech issues, brain fog, abdominal bloating, and I can’t stay awake! I am also sensitive to gluten as an ingredient in body care and makeup! I break out in a horrible red rash with blisters on my body where it touches! This can last from a day to a few weeks depending on the severity of the exposure. My digestive system definitely becomes upset and my immune system is on high alert!
I know others who don’t have any belly (gastrointestinal) symptoms! They suffer from depression, dermatitis herpetiformis (skin redness and bumps), and headaches!
It can be so different for each person!

What is Dermatitis Herpetiformis?
A common symptom is Dermatitis Herpetiformis. It is a red rash that can be itchy or have blisters. You can have the rash without having GI symptoms. Doctors generally recommend a strict gluten-free diet and may proscribe medication to help with the rash. I get this on my body when I use skin care or lotion with gluten in it.
