Going To The Md For The First Time Since Being Diagnosed....anything I Should Ask?

Recommended Posts

So I am going to my Gastroenterologist for the first time since getting the phone call on Friday saying I had Celiac. And I am still so overwhelmed. I am trying to find out if there are any questions I should for sure ask him when I am there. I am trying to make a list to make sure I ask everything I need to. Can anyone help me out?? PLEASE!!

Hi RN,

 

You can ask him about the Marsh scale rating for your villi.  Could ask if there are any celiac aware nutritionists around too.  Are there any other tests they recommend?  Often a bone density test is done.  Many celiacs have lower bone density when diagnosed.  But that should improve by itself after you have been gluten-free for a while.

 

How about vitamin and mineral levels, are the ok?

 

Pro-biotics an digestive enzymes are good things to take.,  you might as well ask for a recommendation on those.
