In Topic: More Testing On Tummy Problems

So the panel came back and she told me "two of the tree markers are there so in my opinion you have it, not going to bother with the biopsy but stay on the gluten free diet" so there I go I have been gluten free for just over a week now and feel fabulous already!!

I am reading "the first year - Celiac disease and gluten free eating" by Jules Shepard awesome book!!!! Extremly helpful!! She has a card in there that you can make one for yourself and give to the waiter/waitress that way your aren't bringing extra attention to yourself you could even excuse yourself to the bathroom and give it to the manager or waiter in private away from your friends.
As for your friend the comments that they are making about its not going to kill you...directly no but it can and will lead to other diseases if you don't take care of it.

I suggest to anyone new to Celiacs to read this book!!!

I don't beleive that she is going to bother with the biopsy...the family history is there and she told me to go ahead with the diet. I am overwhelmed by the hypoglycimia and the celiac but I have a really good book and you all to help me through this and an exremely understanding husband (most important).
Off to the post diagnosis section lol

So went to the Doctor the Celiac panel isn't back yet however she told me that in the mean time to go gluten free for at 3-6 months and see how that goes. She will call me when the panel comes back to let me know what it says but she told me the same thing that I have read here in so many posts the "False negatives are extremely common" I also was diagonased with hypoglycemia which if I don't watch it will turn into Diabetes within 5 years.... just one more thing to add to the list. My fathers side is riddled with it and the celiacs would come from my moms side (so I think mom & grandma have major tummy issues) However I talked to my dad and my cousin started with hypoglycemia then turned out he has celiacs....
