First Dr's Visit Post Diagnosis

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

Tomorrow morning will be my first dr's visit since my diagnosis. I am going to ask for the following blood tests, please let me know if I've missed anything.

CBC

CMP

SED RATE

Iron/Ferritin levels

B-12

Folate

 

I have been hypo-thyroid for about 15 years now, so the thyroid panel will also be run.

 

Am I missing anything?

 

Thanks.

I have moved this.  No need to post the same thing multiple times - tends to confuse some of us.  :blink:

Could ask to run the  Celiac panel again if you think you have been very gluten-free for 3 months or longer.  The numbers might not be perfect, but you could see them going down.  Or mention that you want to get them tested 6 months gluten-free and get that scheduled.

Great, thanks on both counts. Sorry about posting in the wrong place.

 

I was thinking of asking for the Celiac panel to be run again. It's been 4 months since going gluten free. (Was diagnosed on April 1st)
