Fabulous!  Is there enough of your doctor to go around?!  Here's to a smooth procedure and road to recovery :P


In Topic: Symptoms And Testing

24 June 2013 - 07:59 AM

Thank you for your replies.  I have been unwell now for approaching 15 months.  The diet I did wasn't specifically gluten-free, it was an elimination diet to see if I had an intolerance of any description.  The first two weeks was very stringent and the guidance said that if you didn't see any change in symptoms after the initial two weeks (after which you start reintroducing food groups) then there was little chance of a food intolerance and you should return to normal eating.  Which is what I did, with horrible consequences!

 

I've looked at all those tests but am not sure what I had!  I just know I had a blood test and it came back negative.  Then I had an endoscopy.  The biopsy samples were not labelled up properly by the consultant doing my procedure, so they were destroyed by the laboratory without being analysed :(
