Thank you for your message too

I highly doubt I have (or had) celiac disease. I might be gluten intolerant or also only slightly intolerant. If I was celiac I would have died back in my university days, surviving on pasta and pizza.
That's not to say that it was easily digested or even well digested. As soon as I stopped gluten, stools became "better" (for lack of a better term ) and I didn't have to use one roll of toilet paper to clean (and when eating gluten I would regularly bleed, even though only slightly).

When I was a kid I also regularly ate white pasta. Recently when visiting my mom I also ate white pasta (now that I have these problems): no huge reaction, just some bloating and flatulence, but not even this stabbing sensation I have with oils. I also had brown pasta and bread in the past (although not regularly) and didn't have any huge reaction either.

I don't see a point introducing gluten in my diet since anyway it seems to create *some* issues.

I am currently finding oats to be the perfect balance between minerals, protein and fiber. Potatoes would be great too but they cause some issues at the moment. I guess I'm stuck with grains (oats & rice) for the moment .
You should have a colonoscopy and a gastroscope honestly. Precisely many celiacs do quite well on high gluten for a long time. I ate bread products like you wouldn’t believe. But anyway, that’s your call and hopefully you can be followed by excellent doctors in Denmark.
