  1. Thanks so much for the information. This is all so new to me and any insight is appreciated. The diet is kind of overwhelming. I had no idea that gluten is in so many products. I guess most people (especially me) have no idea what they are putting in their bodies when buying all the easy prepared foods. Thanks again!
  2. Hi, This is my 1st time on here. I, too had a similar report. I had upper endoscopy and colonoscopy on Sept. 25th. I had lost a lot of weight without trying. That's really the only symptom besides a dull headache I was having everyday. I was thinking it was all due to going thru "the menopause". I was also having mild anemia, but my iron levels were not below normal and I was not lacking in any of the other vitamins she tested for (like folate, B12, etc.) Also, my white blood cell count was a little below normal. They said that could flutuate. hmmm.. When I got a copy of the report it said: Abnormal mucosa in the duodenum compatible with nodularity duodenal bulb; relatively flattened mucosa D2 (cold forceps biopsies performed for histology at the D2 r/o sprue) In my followup appt with the doc all she could say was it came back negative and "it didn't show up under a microscope". Then she said I should get more calories in my diet, like 3000 calories a day of anything I wanted and come back in 3 months. She did recommend seeing a dietician (which my insurance won't cover because I have no diagnosis). Dietician said she thought it sounded like Celiac. So, I've been on a gluten free diet (trying, anyway) for 3-1/2 weeks. Have not gained any weight, but don't have the headaches. hmmm... I really need advice or support from someone going thru the same thing. Some people don't believe I should be on this diet if the doctor doesn't say I should. Thanks to anyone for listening
