Thank you!   I will make sure to get D3, a friend of mine also suggested this!

My diabetic study is always marked "excellent" so no issues there.  This last blood work was with fasting.


Thank you so much for the information.  I do eat an apple nearly every day, but other than that I don't eat a lot of fruits.  But I do believe I need to cut out most (if not all) prepackaged foods.  I have been taking frozen (gluten-free) meals to work for my lunch nearly every day.  They are fairly high in carbs and have a lot of corn.  I suppose I need to start cooking and taking leftovers for lunches. 


I also eat a lot of Greek yogurt.  It's probably not really that great for me either.  Added sugars.

Thank you both!


I'm hopeful my doctor won't push me to do the gluten challenge test.  She has been reasonable and generally knowledgeable.  Though the lack of testing when she initially suggested I go gluten free bugs me...


Anyway, I will keep this updated!




I actually kind of hope they do find damage if I get the endoscopy.  I don't want to drink the barium for nothing.  :P  That and I would like some confirmation of my own strong suspicions.

Yes, I just don't want to risk getting sick for a test!


I am going to see what the doctor thinks, but I am hoping to get the genetic test as well as thyroid functions.  I'll be sure to mention nutrients too!


Thank you!

About a year ago I went to the doctor thinking I might have IBS, and she recommended I try a gluten free diet.  No tests were done at the time.  I felt better and thought I was "just gluten sensitive" and would be OK.


Fast forward to now:


I have learned that I used to get DH.  I had a bad reaction to eating gluten two weeks ago.  The more I read and learn the more I believe I am Celiac.




I actually did make an appointment to see my Doctor this Monday.  I will be telling her all this and see if there is any testing I should get done.
