Finally, Got Myself Tested Today...
Posted 08 October 2011 - 03:09 PM
I went to the GI doctor last week and he has ordered blood work for Celiac and IBS. He didn't think it was IBS but is checking anyway. Also, stool samples for bacteria since I had recurring UTI's over last fall and winter...around 4-5 of them using Cipro each time. I went to the lab today and hopefully will have results by late next week. I LOVE this doctor. He is open minded, thorough, and current with gluten intolerant issues. I just hope that at least of these tests shows something.
Thanks for "listening".

I'd gone gluten-lite before being tested so my results were negative, although I'm sure gluten is bad for me and I'll never go back on for a test.
Good luck and welcome!
glutenfree since 6/2011. sick for 30 years.
borderline blood test, negative biopsy.
SEVERELY sensitive celiac with DH. sensitive to contact and ingestion.
asthma (was severe; improved exponentially after 6/11)
spina bifida & childhood SCI at L4/L5 (possibly complicated by weak bones)
countless fractures and infections.
i once listed over 100 symptoms or conditions that improved or were eliminated after 6/11.
very vegan. and, of course, i've also discovered some other food allergies.
