Have I Been Diagnosed?
Posted 29 April 2012 - 12:25 PM
When my doctor told me I have Celiac back in August, he was basing this off of a high level of anti-gliadin IgA antibodies. He is more of a holistic doctor, so he told me to begin the gluten-free diet without mentioning a biopsy. I was also uninsured at the time, so I likely would not have been able to afford one. So, my question is, can a doctor officially diagnose celiac based on one test? My school requires "a diagnostic statement written using the diagnostic taxonomies utilized in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems of the World Health Organization (ICD), the State Department of Rehabilitative Services or other State agencies, or the Department of Education". They also require "a description of the diagnostic tests, methods, and/or criteria used".
I hope that I qualify...I really want to do this nursing program, but without accommodations I am horribly nervous about getting glutened and being late for clinicals or something because I'm stuck in the bathroom throwing up (you are docked half a letter grade for being late even once!)

& maybe he can fudge some of it or as a doctor write his own statement & you could see if the school is willing to accept his statement...
