      She gave me the report. I have had Blood test done which came back negative but I was already on the diet. I also have had both scopes done but GI DR. still won't give up the results of biopsy. I've been to so many Dr.'s they have asked for biopsy results from him he will not send them.. So I'm going to have to go in and demand them. I'm just so frustrated and tired of getting the run around and the typical there's nothing wrong with you and it's all in your head diagnosis. The testing was performed at H & I Laboratory in Salt Lake City UT.

      Please Help With Results ?
      I got my Genetic Testing Done and my DR. says well I'm not a Genetestis so I couldn't understand the results so she went on line to try to interpret them herself. My HLA-DQ2 was positive and my HLA-DQ8 was negative the paper says LOCUS DQB1 Alleles 02,0603. Can someone please tell me what this means. The DR. Said she could not tell one way or another and said well there's nothing wrong with you. I contacted the place that did the testing they said the DR. would have to call and they suggested I call the hospital for more help which I did but they couldn't tell me much either. Since the Dr. pretty much brushed me off I'm not getting anywhere with her. So Please if anyone could help me understand this I would greatly appreciate it!!!

      Thank you
      I don't believe they did a celiac panel. I also forgot to mention I developed a rash on both elbows that looks like poison ivy but nothing will clear it I believe it is dermetitis hepifortis. another clear sign. I'm being sent to a Gastro specialist at the CLeveland Clinic in ohio. I've already been to a gastro and had both scopes done but my GP is sending me there. All of my pain has been on my left side is this common? and as far as PPD goes my GP said I've seen this before you have PPD & IBS & Diverticulitis and put me on pills. I never felt these were the problems scope confirmed mild Diverticulitis and he said IBS but I had no prior symptoms all of this started with a double ear infection. I just hope & pray this is truly what I have and that a strict food diet will make me feel better. This is horrible. Thank you for any and all advice you can send my way. This is day 5 of the diet I felt great all day yesterday except for when I ate ice cream last night. It seemed to have sent me into a panic attack with headache which caused insomnia you know....

      Thank you again and it's wonderful to hear from other people who are going through this or are just starting out.
