Well the doctor said my blood test results came back normal apart from having low foic acid levels. And that i probably have IBS and put me on mebeverine to help with the stomach cramps and bloating.

 

He did suggest a elimation diet to see if there is anything in my diet thats affecting me. So i might do that and see what happens. :)

Thanks well ive got a appointment in the morning so i will find out then.

I

know the doctor tested me for and checking my full blood count, Imflammatory diseases, iron levels, b12 levels, sodium and potassium levels, kideny and liver function, thyroid and of course a ceoliac screen. Though im assuming that covers everything?

 

Having read about it online, i know people can get negative blood test yet still have the disease or a non ceoliac gluten intorlance. If they come back negative. Ive considered doing a gluten free diet just to see if the pains stop and i feel better.

 

I will try and get my results printed out. :) And let you know

My doctor did something similar! They did blood work and the nurse called me and said that my test showed a possibilty of celiac and to "maybe go on a gluten free diet, if I want to, and see if I feel better". Which doesn't even really make sense.. because she never even mentioned an endoscopy and biopsy at all. She didn't seem concerned, which was really frustrating! So, even though it shouldn't be.. it is possible that there was something in your blood work that suggested celiac and that the doctor isn't acting as if it is very urgent- that is kind of what happened to me! I would hope that if they were concerned about celiac with you that they would have at least told you that.. but I also have experienced disconnect like that with other doctors. I called and left a message saying I was confused, and they did call me again and said I needed to get a biopsy done. So I think you should definitely call them and demand that someone contact you and give you more detail about your results. Because whether it is celiac or not, it's your health and you shouldn't have to wonder!

 

Hope you get to feeling better!

Thank you. I have a appointment tomorrow morning but it is annoying that nothing was written on my notes when i asked the receptionist what blood test was it concerning.

 

Well i will find out tomorrow and im convincing myself its properbly got something to do with my underactive thryriod. Though i did read that the blood tests for ceoliacs can come back negative. Hopefully my doctor will know that and not fob me off like previous doctors.

 

Ive had stomach cramps and bouts of diarherra, contipation, etc since i can remember! There was one time a few years ago i thought i could have appendictis as i had really bad stomach pain so much that i was sick and couldnt get comfortable. The doctor just said i was fine and it was nothing! How can that be nothing!

 

My auntie has a gulten intorlance and i my cousin has coeilacs so if its in the family, would there be a chance i could have it. It is frustrating
