About five years before I was finally diagnosed with Celiac, I had a mouth full of canker sores...so bad, my entire mouth was enflamed, I could barely speak & I could only drink liquids. My dentist sent me to UCSF teaching Dental School (I was living in San Francisco at the time) . They had never seen anything like it & biopsied me for cancer. Results were negative, so they put me on steroids & sent me on my way. Years later after a move to NJ, I finally was properly diagnosed by my brand new Internist who listened, thought outside the box & had me tested for Celiac. My celiac son, who admittedly cheats on the GF diet at times, continues to have canker sores when he ingests gluten. How do we get this information into Dental Schools, no less our Medical Schools??
