PETES added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHelp Newbie31608.1
Did anyone have the symptom of constant burping, reflux, and upper bloating prior to their celiac diagnosis? I have these symptoms and as wondering if gluten could be my problem. I tested negative for sprue but decided to try the stool testing at enterolab and they came back postive for gluten sensitivity. My doc says my symptoms are not sprue and that enterolab and Dr. Fine are quacks. Any advice or feedback is greatly appreciated.

PETES added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHelp- Greatly AppreciatedHi. I would be grateful if anyone could help me. Do these symptoms sound like sprue? I have constant burping, acid reflux, abdominal bloating, tons of gas, rectal itching, dry eyes(blepharitis), and sport injuries that never seem to heal.
I have been told that I have a small hiatus hernia but that it should not be giving me these symptoms.
I have had tests that show my stomach may empty too slow yet drugs to improve this have not made a difference.
I had a colonoscopy which showed inflamation at terminal ileum(possible crohns) yet crohns drugs have not made a difference and my symptoms don't sound like crohns
Had celiac bloodwork and a biopsy which were all negative.
Decided to do enterolabs testing and it showed that I am gluten intolerant, have small intestinal malabsorption, and have the gene for sprue.
Could I have sprue or is this test quackery? My GI told me to throw the results in the garbage. If I go gluten free, how long would it take to know for sure?
I greatly appreciate any opinions. What a great site.
