A lot of autoimmune problems improve if you go gluten free.
Many people with Celiac Disease, are misdiagnosed for years with other things!
My hubby found out about 3 years ago that he has Celiac.
I mostly do gluten free too, even though I don't have to,
because I feel so much better when I do & have more energy!
While you are waiting for appointments, cut out gluten,
which is basically grains or anything made from them,
& see how you feel. If you feel better after a few days,
then it might be wise to go gf, no matter what it is that you have!
Here's a list of symptoms from the Celiac web site:
There is a link for a symptom PDF list on there too.
Do a search & read some of the blogs that you'll find.
It's amazing what people go through before they are correctly diagnosed!
A lot of them found it out themselves after years of being misdiagnosed!
Apparently all the GMO tampering, is messing with just about everyone's immune systems!
So unless someone has access to 'real' grains, things probably are going to be getting worse!
Whether by choice or because of Celiac, more people are asking for gf products.
So thankfully, it's getting easier to find them, or at least ingredients to make your own.
Good luck finding some answers!
