GJ - the reason i mentioned it is that low b12 can be totally unrelated to intake and be due only to absorption issues,which can be very true with celiac. if so, you can be low even if omni or supplementing so would need a b12 shot to correct this. this bipasses the gut. so have you been tested? because it might take your gut awhile to heal. in the meantime, no reason to suffer from b12 deficiency as nerve damage is not always reversible. so get it checked please.
as far as having a "label." if you know whats harming you and the solution, labels are pretty silly. most people dont care anyways. i tried to get into an ED hospital, they did not care if i were celiac or not, i had to eat what was said. lame but true! many people will think you are lying anyways if they are ignorant or trying to be impossible and say cant you have just a little? i mean if you have to walk around with papers showing proof and medical documentation stating why this is so harmful to me, thats pretty lame. i know with how much pain i've been in, i dont care if my label is celiac, colitis, or some mental illness thats causing serious digestive issues. all i know is that i've been bed ridden in pain to the point where i felt i should call an ambulance and suffered bloody diarrhea, thats good enough. i also have trauma issues that make me not want someone cutting up my intestine or probing objects in me especially when i am hurting and not even wanting food to even go through my intestines. so if i can figure out how to stop the pain then i feel like the problem is solved. really i could care less on the diagnosis at this point, only if i need one to know what i should do or what i'm doing is not helping and lost. if i know the cure i'm fine just feeling healthy. if people dont believe me that is THEIR problem not mine. and the next time i get bloody diahhrea i will collect a jar for them and wrap it up as a present if needed, geez. actually i would now just leave the situation and never talk to them again. really, if they dont believe me then thats not a friend i want anymore. i ended up having SIX surgeries on my arm because my ex convinced me i was blowing my arm out of proportion but it was a commuted fracture in 3 places and bone died because i waited too long to get it checked. i dont lie about pain. but now that today i am feeling better i'm not wanting to go back to that pain to prove anything just like someone wouldnt want to drink draino or have someone jab a knife into their intestine, its just too painful. i will slowly add things in as i think its celiac disease that i cant even tolerate GF oats and if other foods work out ok, then i know my answer. if i start getting serious symptoms and AM 100% GF then i know its something else and need further testing.
