Not Sure What To Do

2 posts in this topic

I was recently diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. My doctor had mentioned that, because of my symptoms, it may also be celiac sprue before I went for the colonoscopy and was diagnosed with uc. Many years ago I had problems with kidney stones and was put on a restricted diet that consisted of no red meats, barley, spinach, potatoes to name a few. I also became lactose intolerant at that same time. I was never given a clear diagnosis. It was mentioned to me a while back by an MRI tech that I probably had celiac disease not only because of my reactions to certain foods but also because of my lower lumbar is not in aligned. Now that I was told I have UC, the doctor doesn't feel I should be tested. After reading a lot of the posts on this board I am starting to believe that it may be.

You can have both ulcerative colitis and celiac disease. Insist that you be tested. It doesn't hurt the doctor to test you. Make sure they give you a full Celiac Panel. This should consist of the following:

*Gliadin IgA Antibodies

*Gliadin IgG Antibodies

*Anti-endomysial IgA

*Anti-human Tissue Transglutaminase IgA

*Total Serum IgA

If possible they should send them to Prometheus Labs, and do the gene test as well.

God bless,

Mariann :)
