Celiac Women – Pay attention to this!

This is just a little scary.  I received this in an e-mail and it struck me how closely the symptoms for Ovarian Cancer are to those of Celiac Disease.

Ovarian Cancer Whispers  – so  listen carefully . . . 

Watch for Pelvic or abdominal pain or discomfort; 
    vague but  persistent gastrointestinal upsets such as gas, nausea, and    indigestion 
    frequency and/or urgency of urination in the absence of an infection; 
    unexplained weight gain or weight loss 
    pelvic and/or abdominal swelling, bloating and/or feeling of fullness; 
    ongoing unusual fatigue; 
    unexplained changes in bowel habits. 

If symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks, ask your doctor for a combination pelvic/rectal exam,  CA-125 blood test, and trans-vaginal ultrasound. 

A pap test WILL NOT detect ovarian cancer.

Do these symptoms sound familiar!

Those of us with Celiac Disease experience these symptoms when we get “glutened”
