Here is something you can tell him...
"Thanks Doc...I have Celiac Disease and you are fired"
or "I have determined I have Celiac Disease and you need to read current research regarding my condition so you will know as much as I do".
Joking aside -- a good primary can take care of your follow up unless you need subsequent endoscopic biopsy....if that happens find the best Celiac specialist in your area.
Keep hanging out and ask questions - it really does make the transition much easier.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
