I visited a GI doc today for chronic constipation. Because of my history of low ferritin, low vit D, and osteopenia I enquired about a celiac test. He remembered doing a biopsy 3 years ago (he read my chart!) but he immediately agreed to a blood test saying that celiac can be "spotty" and easy to miss!!!!

So glad I went in. My primary refused to do a celiac test because I don't have diarrhea.

He also agreed to H Pylori test because I have a history of reflux and he did not take a sample during my tests 3 years ago. I love that guy.

And he was wearing some kicka$$ boots too

Lol

I'm glad he's on the ball. Most stories we here around here are about how octopus have made mistakes. It is nice to hear about a good doc, with good boots. ;)

Good luck with the testing, and remember to keep eating gluten until all tests are done. :)

If you would like to mention his name and city, it might help someone else.

As long as it isn't your own personal business, it fine. We have someone right now looking for a doc in Georgia. I'll link him here.

Update....celiac blood test was negative. I do not have numbers however.

Last Sunday night I developed diverticulitis. I caught it early and have been able treat it with oral antibiotics. It's not fun tho. I'm back to doc Thursday for a follow up of my previous visit. At lease he might take my concerns very seriously now. I want a salad and I want it now!!!!!
