She had the results, only she never had the results to the coeliac test -- which is the main reason I was tested of course.
Then she told me I was bulimic or anorexic, I had to be, because I look like it. It was no use trying to defend myself because she kept saying "umhumm", you know, that sceptical "yeah, whatever" kind. Now I have to get more bloodwork, and spend more time being SICK.
Also, my iron levels are HIGH! Too high infact. Is this common?

My iron levels, potassium levels, magnesium levels and B12 levels test consistently low. Potassium has been so low at times that it was close to a medical emergency which I could have died from. I take iron, potassium, magnesium and monthly B12 sgots along with a multivitamin and still blood work comes back with deficiencies. Hope my next bloodwork will be much improved.
I hope your blood work is much improved on your next appointment! What just kills me is that even with a definitive celiac diagnosis by both blood work and endoscopy that my dr. didn't suggest any other tests or anything. He even diagnosed dermatitis herpetiformis but refused to prescribe Dapsone or give any other advice. He told me I could see a dermatologist or a dietician if I felt that I needed to??? I now plan to get an appt. with an internist (maybe??) for the vitamin / mineral tests.
