ihatethecircus added a topic in Celiac Disease - DoctorsGood Docs In Columbus, Oh?Looking for a good doc in Columbus, Ohio. Was having problems, had the bloodtest (on my suggestion) but it came up negative. I had been off gluten for a month then and (correct me if I'm wrong), I now realize I should have been eating gluten to get the test to show a positive? I have started eating gluten again and having nasty issues so I'd really like to know for sure.
Thanks in advance.

Drank some margaritas with triple sec in them and got violently ill. Anyone know how triple sec is made? (it was a cheaper version)

ihatethecircus added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsPossibly Celiacs Disease(?) And BloodtestsAm new to this board and haven't been diagnosed. My problems started several months ago with severe acid reflux and nausea when I eat wheat products and anything with oats. I've had an endoscopy and upper GI. The only thing they could find was a small hiatal hernia. I just went to the doc to get full blood workup today and ironically a coworker just told me about her friend's recent celiac diagnosis. I saw a lot of similarities in my symptoms SO I called my doc to see if they could test me for this. I was told they would test for malnutrition which could be an indicator but that a biopsy was the only way to know for sure.
My question is this- if I'm not malnourished could I still have this? Basically, I need to know what to do next.
Any help is appreciated! Thanks so much!
Whoopsie- think I put this in the wrong spot. I also put this in the coping section? Am foggy-headed. Sorry.
