What Tests Exactly Should I Ask For?
Posted 27 March 2011 - 10:55 AM
Also, anything specific I should ask about? I am taking along my history and notes about Celiac's. Again, I would hope she's a little knowledgeable, but I am not taking any chances. I want to be sure she knows I am serious and why. She's a great doctor, I don't think I will have to fight hard or anything, I guess I am just nervous about pleading my case for these tests.
Also, as far as I can tell being pregnant will not have any effect on the outcome of the tests right?

There are other tests that others can add in their comments such as Genetic testing, etc. It can amount to a lot of $ís. I hope you get the answers you need for healing. Let us know how your doctors visit turns out.

The appointment went well. She, of course, thought it sounded like IBS, but also said it was smart to test for Celiac with the other symptoms. She said obviously we couldn't do the endoscope until after I had the baby. I am not sure if I would even want to have it if the blood tests are positive. I've never been sedated before and it kinda scares me honestly. She went ahead and checked my thyroid again too since they were already drawing blood, but it was normal just last summer.
They drew the blood and now I guess I wait. I know it depends on lab probably, but about how long does do people typically get results back?
