Some of the most common symptoms of celiac disease include:

Bloating or Gas Diarrhea Constipation Fatigue
Itchy Skin Rash Tingling/Numbness Pale Mouth Sores Joint Pain
Delayed Growth Poor Weight Gain Thin Bones Infertility
Headaches Depression Irritability Discolored Teeth

Anemia, delayed growth, and weight loss are signs of malnutrition. Malnutrition is a serious problem for anyone, but particularly for children because they need adequate nutrition to develop properly. Failure to thrive during childhood development is a common indicator of celiac.

Some people with celiac disease may have no symptoms at all.

This is known as asymptomatic celiac disease. The undamaged part of their small intestine is able to absorb enough nutrients to prevent symptoms. However, people without symptoms are still at risk for the complications of celiac disease.
