Dr. Called After Hours

5 posts in this topic

Hey Fellow celiac disease's (or rather guys with celiac disease, better?)

Just got a call from my new internist Dr. at 6:30 this evening. He saw his patients all day and he sits down and calls who he feels he needs too. Boy was I impressed. I certainly made a point of telling him that. As long as he stays here, he will be my Dr. for life.

Results: Anti-body test for Celiac was Neg. BUT....I told him that by the time they drew blood for testing, I was on (as best as I could) the gluten-free diet for about three weeks and he said that that would definately effect the results. Good news is that every thing else looked good....Liver, pancreas, gall blatter, bla, bla, bla...

So that is good. Yeah for me.

B-12 level was the ONLY thing that needed addressing. So he suggested B-12 shots once a week for a month, then once a month. Fatigue is a very real issue for me now.

gluten-free diet is working. Acid, mostly gone, am. poops sink, (after lunch sometimes not), but improving every day.

Just wanted to say that you all have taught me alot and would encourage any new members to read as much on the site that they can. It is VERY time consumming, but well worth it toward improving your health.

Yeah for me...now I just need to keep the pine trees off my house tomorrow night. Now that's the pits.

Thanks you all for your help Lisa B

Congrats on the responsive doctor and the good (at least, readily dealt with) lab results! :-)

Wow Lisa,

Sounds like you have a really dedicated doctor there. He's definitely a keeper!

Well, it sounds like everything is under control except for the B12. The shots should take care of that though.....

I really happy you got such great news......

Now make sure you take cover before Hurricane Ophelia hits!!!!

Hugs.

Karen

My doctor is like that too. She called me at like 7:30 pm to tell me that my results came back positive. She has been fantastic. She didn't really know much about celiac disease, but since my diagnosis she has been going way out of her way to learn about it, she even went to a seminar to learn more.
