Also consider looking into the genetic test.

I don't know if Celiac runs in my family, but I guess you never know...it could be way back there..

When you try the diet, give it 3 months. I found that tracking my symptoms really helped. I used a calendar and started while I was still eating gluten. I jotted down how I was feeling and any symptoms I had. I continued after I started the diet and week after week, I had less to record on the calendar. It was gradual, but looking back, remarkable.
Good luck to you -

Will definitely ask my endocrinologist for more details about my test results. I have to call him for advice regarding fasting for the endoscopy and my diabetes. That's what I'm most worried about! I already had to reschedule an ultrasound before the endoscopy because my blood sugar was low!
Another question - have a lot of you had your gall bladder removed? Was it pre or post diagnosis? Previously I had chalked up all my stomach upset to the removal of my gall bladder but when I read about some of the other symptoms that fit what's going on with me, I started to suspect Celiac a bit more.
I have also read that often people with Celiac will not react to all forms of gluten before going off gluten entirely because they may have just gotten used to a food that they eat frequently (ex: I eat crackers all the time and I never react to those!) but then when going off gluten altogether if they eat those foods again, they will experience a reaction because their bodies are no longer "used" to that food.
Is this true?
