Celiac is the only disease that a doctor says, " you have it & good luck with that". Can you imagine them saying that to a newly diagnosed diabetic or cancer patient?
Anyway, here is a good place to start:

Thanks I have to go see him in 4-6 weeks
In 4-6 weeks you will likely know far more than your doctor about Celiac Disease.
Start with the Newbie 101 thread, then ask as many questions as you need. Transitioning to a gluten-free life is not easy, but it does become much easier with time.
Let us know how we can help
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
