it would seem you should have been informed that any further testing would have been at your expense and allowed to make that choice.
Can You Just Ask To Be Tested?

I, too, am in Ontario. OHIP will cover an endoscopy with biopsies, and pathological examination of the biopsies. Much more expensive than the blood panel. Go figure.
I am in Ontario. No celiac testing is covered.

Wow, I look like that all over right now. Ask to be checked.
I wrote another post on a different board detailing all my symptoms. I've already had vitamin and mineral levels drawn and I am deficent in vitamin K, vitamin D, vitamin B, Iron, not sure what else. I also have the skin issues and I just printed out 2 pictures at Walmart to take bc I don't currently have the rash. Here is one pic of my knee (where I normally get it the worst. I have had it worse than this as well but this is one of the two pictures I have -
I really hope that I can get him to do the testing bc I am just getting sicker and sicker and it is really impacting my life. I am a full time social work student as well as a mother of 3 (ages 6, 10, and 11) and I am barely able to function.
