  • Diarrhea
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Poor growth (in children)
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal pain
  • Anemia
  • Bruising easily
  • Vitamin deficiencies (especially vitamin A, D, E, K, and B-12)

Less Common Celiac Disease Symptoms:

  • Mouth ulcers
  • Delayed puberty (in children)
  • Infertility
  • Liver damage
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
