  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I received a phone call today from my 13 yr old daughter's GI doc. He said that a screening for Celiac's disease came back positive. She recently had an endoscopy at another hospital with a biopsy and that was said to be fine. He told me he is going to get her slides and look at them himself with his pathologist. She has had these problems since she was born and is having the worst bout she has ever had. We can't seem to get it under control. I was told when she was 15 months that she had GERD Level 4, IBS and a hiatal hernia. That's how we have treated it for all these years. My question is this: How can you have a positive screening if the biopsy is OK? Also, she has lots of abdominal pain, constipation and reflux problems. The pain doubles her up! Does this sound like Celiac's? I thought Celiac's disease was characterized by diarrhea, she has very chronic constipation. Any ideas for a frustrated teenager and her concerned parents? Thanks
