Thank you all so much! I jotted those names down and will look for them this weekend. I do feel 1000% better since being gluten-free I guess I just need to allow my body to continue to heal and take some supplements to aide in digestion.
Tina the best news is you are NOT alone! I've only been gluten free for 5 days now, still very very new to this as well and to wrap my head around but yes I do know you won't have to give up your favorite staples of bread, pasta etc, you'll just find new gluten free versions of them and a biopsy does not mean you have cancer! It just means they want to see how bad celiac disease has damaged the villi of your small intestine, it's a pretty standard test for celiac disease. I would definitely recommend reading lots of posts in this forum and maybe even checking out a few books from your libary etc, I found Living Gluten Free for dummies to be extremely informative, Wheat Belly was especially good at getting at the science behind wheat and how today's wheat is more like poison in our bodies anyway and maybe even getting a couple cookbooks for gluten free meals etc. Read up on the disease and educate yourself and you'll be less overwhelmed and once you start your gluten free diet you are going to feel sooo much better which will put things back into perspective as well. I know some of the other members here who have been diagnosed celiac a lot longer than me will give you some great advice too. But I did want to say welcome to the forum and please ask questions and utitlize it, there is so many people here who can help you
