So glad your EGD went well. I cried like a baby when they took me back. It really wasn't bad at all, but I was terrified since I've never had any kind of procedure done. My doctor diagnosed me based on a blood test as well. The only damage found in me was inflammation. The doctors don't always find damage with a biopsy. You'll likely feel a lot better once you start gluten free. It can be very difficult at times, but I also find it to be quite fun when I try new recipes that taste fantastic or when I find something new at the grocery store!

Thank you so much for all the information. I do feel like I am relatively knowledgable about Celiac and how it affects your overall health. However, there is always more to learn. I have been gluten free for about 7 months. I didn't feel like my testing was done properly. My doctor told me many times that I know more about it than he does. Even though I didn't really have doubts that I have Celiac, I wanted to see what others who are knowledgeable said. If you get a change to look at my post "symptoms (or lack there of)," please let me know what you think. I asked about the fact that I am not aware of any of my symptoms (not saying I don't have any), and how that can be a challenge in maintaining a gluten free diet. Thanks again for your responses!
