Ibs Diagnosis But I Think It's Celiac

I have had nothing but problems in the last 10 years----I am 37. First, depression and anxiety,weight gain,asthma,thyroid problems,canker sores, more weight gain. I have put on 100 pounds and now a size 20, although I exercise daily. I finally referred myself to a GI last month, who ran the celiac panel tests. Came back normal. Still, he did the endoscopy and colonoscopy and that was done yesterday. Doctors told my mom and I yesterday I don't have Celiac.....probably IBS; said I had acid reflux with mild stomach erosion. Told me to diet and exercise and come back in May for a follow-up. Gave me a prescription for the acid reflux. Also did quite a bit of biopsies and the results come back in 2 weeks. But why would he say I don't have Celiac? He must suspect it for the biopsies,right?

He can't rule it out completely until the biopsies are back. At any rate, you should give the gluten free diet a try. You're done with testing, so there's no reason not to. Try it for 6 months or so and see how you feel.

also- i HIGHLY recommend- that you request your own paper copies of the results from your Celiac panel- you would be surprised to know how difficult it can be to see a positive or a negative to them-> there's many antibodies they can check for. many times they miss the positive, or dont test for enough. my doctors are ALWAYS missing something in my results! seriously!
