Today I was put back on the pills to help control Microscopic Colitus. They figure I have both celiac disease and Micro to control. From what I have been reading on the forum is not uncommon.

co09wrx added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsOk, Im Confused.My dietitian and all I have read says the endoscopy biopsies are required to confirm a celiac disease diagnosis. My GI doctor's office called and said I don't need the endoscopy after the blood test panel confirmed Celiac Disease. They said stay on gluten free (WBOR). I don't go back to see them till Nov. 5th to find out how I am doing.

co09wrx added a topic in Celiac Meeting RoomNewly Diagnosed With CeliacHi all,
I joined the club last week after the blood tests. Somehow the diagnosis is not shocking. I have been on Endocort for 3 years with little relief. My original diagnosis was microscopic colitis.
Looking forward to the relief from following the lifelong diet. Wow label checking is worse then the low sodium Menier's diet, looking for salt was easy compared to celiac disease. No longer have Menier's symptoms.
I have a lot to learn. Going to a dietitian on Oct, 1st.
