ilmbg added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsIs Or Isn't Leaking From Intestines Possible?I will try to give some backround for you first.
I have been hypothyroid for 40 years. Well controlled with total replacement by endocrine doc. Last 5 years not so...I have felt 'awful', exhausted, depression, abdominal pain- a general 'I don't feel good' feeling throughout the abdomin. I just can't explain how bad I felt. I have severe asthma- my parents were both 3 pack/day people who were told when I was a child to quit due to my respiratory problems. They didn't.
I decided to go to a 'Wellness' doc. He did saliva tests, asked my regular doc to do multiple blood tests (he can't order tests as he is a chiroprator).
The saliva/stool came back SIgA positive. I will leave out the other results right now. Bloodwork all essentially within normal limits.
When I asked the doc about stool actually leaking into the abdominal cavity he said it 'can't happen'. I had just seen an episode on Dr. Oz that leaking of stoll CAN happen.
What do you guys think?
I am worried that the 'wellness doc' is a 'used car salesman'.
It is 4am will write more later.
