2 weeks and my celiac test is STILL not back. I was at my dr today discussing my blood test results (I am SEVERELY iron deficient anemic) and he said that the celiac test is still not back. I asked him if I'll be informed when it does come back and he said if there is anything off he'll call me but not to be worried because celiac is really "no big deal." Seriously?? I'm sick all the time and there COULD be an explanation but "it's no big deal." Idiot.

What a JERK! Ask him to suffer the way you have suffered! Ask him to go gluten-free and see if it's no big deal! And then take him some literature about celiac crisis and ask him if DYING from celiac is no big deal!

And then fire the #*%@*#*!!!!!

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Agree with bartfull on this one. I had a doctor literally laugh at me for demanding a celiac blood panel. He said: "You're too fat to have celiacs; do you even know what celiacs is?"

Had I not been energy deprived - there would have literally been a physical a** whooping served to his pretentious/condescending a**. I wanted him to feel every ounce of pain that I felt over the years of being misdiagnosed.

If he/she doesn't take you seriously, fire him - no questions asked! Don't be afraid to tell him/her why you're severing them as your health care provider.
