Endoscopy showed damage that looked like "classic celiac", biopsy showed total villous atrophy

Only real symptoms are huge weight loss and neuropathy

I called and made an appointment, and when we got there, he just blurts out of nowhere and goes "You have coeliac disease"
I thought it was really unprofessional and I wasn't prepared for it at all

The dietician was full of information and gave me so many things to take home (booklet, copies of local restaurant menus and coupons, etc.). Everyone was compassionate, but also adamant about the seriousness of the disease.
I didn't realize how lucky I am to live in the Pittsburgh area. They seem to have really awesome docs here.
