Symptoms to watch for: dark circles and thinness; low iron and celiac disease.


Carole, Age 54

I was diagnosed 8 years ago at age 46. My daughter was diagnosed at age 17 at the same time. When I look back I had low iron at age 20 and probably had more physical symptoms for 12 years before diagnosis. My daughter was a thinner child and always had dark circles under her eyes. I had bloating symptoms for at least a year before diagnosis.
