I have every typical symptom and have been to the doctor quiet a few times to be tested. They have only done bloodwork on me. Is that the normal way of testing?
Is there anything else I can do besides cutting out gluten from my diet and daily life to help these symptoms subside? Thank you!
Yes, blood work is usually the first step. For most people that works out (but not all) just make sure they ran all (or most) celiac blood tests (DGP IgA and IgG, tTG IGA and IgG, EMA IgA, total serum IgA controltest, and possibly the older AGA IgA and IgG ).
Some celiacs are also lactose intolerant. That can make the same, or very similar symptoms to, gluten intolerances. Perhaps try dropping dairy for a while along with the gluten.
Some people are left with nutritional deficiencies too. You might want to have your D calcium, B's, iron, ferritin, and potassium checked; anemia is common too.
As for healing, probiotics can be helpful. Avoiding processed foods is good. L-glutamine helps with muscle (intestinal) repair and could hgelp you feel better faster.
