Should I Ask To Be Tested?

13 June 2006 - 12:37 PM

I was on this web site a couple of years ago when I was having a lot of stomach problems. After tests and an endoscopy, the doctor said that I had IBS.

My stomach has been better, but it seems to act up when I'm stressed or maybe when I eat certain foods.

I recently had some routine bloodwork done for a new doctor, and he told me that my liver enzymes are very elevated. One enzyme that should be in the 30s is in the 500s. He is suspecting Hepatitis, though I don't know where I would have gotten B or C, and I don't really have the symptoms of A. I've been very tired lately with some bloated stomach problems, but that's about it. I am waiting for the results of the Hep tests. If they come back negative, should I ask to be tested for Celiac? I have read that it can elevate liver enzymes and that smelly flactulance, stools and bloating are symptoms. I definitely have those, but I don't really have any other symptoms of celiac.

Thanks,

Stacie
