what do I want to see on the blood tests?

If you have celiac disease, than you would want them to be positive, so that your intestines can heal and so that you can start feeling better on the gluten free diet. The gluten free diet is hard at first, but it gets easier with time. I actually enjoy eating gluten free now and I find that I am very healthy and I'm feeling so much better than I was. Let us know how the tests go.

You are right Vydorscope! I thought I was doing well to be this far along getting tested and I presented only with Anemia in March of this year. Didn't get told to see the GI until Sept. but on second trip there (to disuss test results) he mentioned I MAY have celiac disease. Just found out about someone in Chat. who took 13 years for her dx. I think insurance companies are completely ruining our health care system and in a few years we'll be trying to go overseas for serious help instead of the other way around. I'm sure many will disagree with me but we'll just have to agree to disagree.

The gluten-free diet is hard to get started on. And is typically more expensive when you first start. How ever with time you get used to it, and with time you learn cost cutting ideas such as buying the gluten-free you like in bluk, finding offbrands of mainstream products taht are gluten-free. For exmpale we buy alot of fodd that happens to be gluten-free, thats Kroger brand (store brand). It will just take a little work to get there. And lots fo phone calls to companies, and lots of reading posts here. Once your used it, it becomes second nature and you just do it.
