Hey so i seen my doctor today and told him how id been of gluten for about 40 days, of course he suggested the blood test which would involve me going back on gluten which i declined as a tiny bit is now causing reactions. I got my lanzoperole changed from 30mg to 15mg which i belive since going gluten free i dont need.

Anyway got the following blood tests to be done 2maro, Full blood count, Glucose random, Liver function tests, Thyroid function test and Urea and electrolytes for gp. I dont know what any of them are for apart from the full blood count, is this good progress? From your experiences am i gonna find anything from these. Thx for your advice as always

You also need a full nutrient panel, for vitamins and minerals - like A, B's (especially B12) D, E, K, potassium, calcium, zinc,ferritin/iron, etc. since gluten can cause depletion of your nutrient levels which leads to other problems. Glad he is doing thyroid. Well, I see he is doing electrolytes which covers a lot of the minerals. When you get those results back ask for the rest.
