Getting Tested Friday
Posted 14 September 2005 - 07:53 AM
I just found this website yesterday and was on it for a couple hours. I just put in a call to my doctor, to get tested for celiac. I have suspected it for sometime now. I feel a little weird about going in and saying I want tested for it without the doctor recomending it, and I'm a little nervous that he might blow me off and try something else. I made a list of all of my symptoms to take into him(fatigue, depression, irritability, dental enamel defects, diarrhea, Constant flatulence, Abdominal pain & bloating, Stomach rumbling, mouth sores (small), and headaches). I am a little discouraged because it seems like it is hard to get a diagnosis. Last month I did the South Beach Diet (no carbs except veggies) and my issues seemed to disappear. I hope this dosn't mess with the test results. I also was wondering if I should even tell him about the diet because then he might say well, just keep eating that way and then not do the test. It would be REALLY hard for me to stick to a gluten-free diet without a diagnosis. I hope this makes sense. I guess I just need some encouragement. Thanks, Adrianne.
