Get copies of all your results. I've many times had things reported as "normal" that were low normal, or even abnormal in the books of other specialists. If they give you a hard time or delay because they "lose" your request, remind them that you are legally entitled to the information. Sometimes threatening legal action is necessary. :angry:

Definitely get a copy of your labs. You want to verify which tests they did. Often you don't get exactly what you think you did!

And regardless of the lab tests, if gluten-free makes you feel better, then you have your answer. You don't need a dr to agree with that!

I had scrambled Eggbeaters and a slice of regular toast and I felt awful after eating it. My arms feel like they are on fire.

Unless you are going in for more testing for celiac, you can eat gluten free. There is a physiologically separate condition called non celiac gluten sensitivity. People with this disorder have the same negative physical reaction to gluten, but often don't have positive antibodies or biopsies. This is because the molecular pathways that control NCGS activate different aspects of the immune system than celiac disease. Nonetheless, the only treatment is to be strictly gluten free, although the outlook is generally much more positive. Stop eating gluten, unless you are getting biopsies taken! I know whereof I speak, because I was just diagnosed by a celiac expert with NCGS.

I have an endoscopy scheduled for Thursday morning. I had night sweats like crazy last night. If it is not Celiac, I really hope to find out soon.

At least that is just a few more days! And you don't have to eat any gluten after Wednesday! :D sounds like you definitely are at least NCGI so regardless of the biopsy, ditch the gluten permanently!
