Hello. First time posting. Had a positive blood test 3 years ago after 18 years of being told it was IBS or that I was flat out crazy. Went to a new doctor 3 yrs ago in NYC cause i had bronchitis. Asked me my med history and from that he deduced I had Celiac & gave me a blood test. also suffer from severe anemia. heres the problem: i asked the dr for a biopsy so i could be sure of the diagnosis and he told me it was unnecessary. but everything ive read says the opposite. also, i have quite a hard time sticking to this difficult diet. so i want to be sure i have this before i radically alter my diet for good. & i am willing to change my diet. as for right now i feel horrible, not a day goes by that i my stomach doesnt hurt, real low blood (low energy & i am freezing all the time), feel sad alot. so, i do believe it's celiac, but then i have doubts because neither of my parents have it. can any one recommend a dr. in westchester who i can go who will give me a biopsy? i live in the white plains area. thank you. i really want to start a gluten free diet, cause ive been feeling lousy. but, ive read that you shouldnt stop eating gluten until you have the tests done.
