Thanks everybody for the quick and informative replies.
The doctors did not tell us what they were testing for, just that they were taking stool samples and blood tests.
Endoscopy: The GI doc did do this and scoped up into the small intestine. This is where the mild inflamation was at. They took several biopsies for testing and we will get those results in a few days. I think they are testing for cancer just to be sure. tomorrow morning I will ask about doing a celiac test on those biopsies.
Thankyou for the specific names of the Celiac test panels to do. I will give the doctor the list.
It is unfortnate that his doctor does not listen to his concerns. If he does not listen tomorrow, we are demanding a different doctor.
If anyone has anymore info or advice, I am all ears!
And thanks so much to those of you that responded.
I really appreciate it.
