I am not sure if I actually have Celiac or not. One year ago I started having textbook Celiac problems and my family doctor told me not to eat any wheat products. I had sinus surgery approx. 1 1/2 years ago and a major stressful event which I understand are triggers. Had the blood test done - negative, colonoscopy was negative, small bowel was inconclusive and stated "recent treatment or early onset celiac sprue". This made sense to me because I was on the gluten free diet for two to three months prior to the small bowel being completed. I am currently eating wheat/gluten products because all the tests will be repeated shortly and if the results are positive, someone might actually believe me instead of the normal "maybe you have Celiac." Anyway, I also think I am lactose intollerant (I have had that problem all my life) Now the new problem - My C Reactive Protein is really elevated, I have been told I have a complex cyst in my spleen and I am at the pre-diabetes stage. Are there any connections between Celiac and these new diagnoses? Any information will be appreciated. Thank you!

I really don't know the connections between the new diagnoses and Celiac. But i had celiac blood test. ONe came out negative and one came out postive... so i guess i have celiacs disease since the test are apparantly really strong. It's always best to go back and eat gluten and then get the tests to make the results certain. I didn't get an endoscopy to confirm my diagnoses though. I'm not sure waht a complex cyst is...or the function of the spleen...hm
