Good Gi Doc Experience!

Recommended Posts

I visited a GI doc today for chronic constipation. Because of my history of low ferritin, low vit D, and osteopenia I enquired about a celiac test. He remembered doing a biopsy 3 years ago (he read my chart!) but he immediately agreed to a blood test saying that celiac can be "spotty" and easy to miss!!!!

So glad I went in. My primary refused to do a celiac test because I don't have diarrhea.

He also agreed to H Pylori test because I have a history of reflux and he did not take a sample during my tests 3 years ago. I love that guy.

And he was wearing some kicka$$ boots too

Lol

I'm glad he's on the ball. Most stories we here around here are about how octopus have made mistakes. It is nice to hear about a good doc, with good boots. ;)

Good luck with the testing, and remember to keep eating gluten until all tests are done. :)

As long as it isn't your own personal business, it fine. We have someone right now looking for a doc in Georgia. I'll link him here.

Update....celiac blood test was negative. I do not have numbers however.

Last Sunday night I developed diverticulitis. I caught it early and have been able treat it with oral antibiotics. It's not fun tho. I'm back to doc Thursday for a follow up of my previous visit. At lease he might take my concerns very seriously now. I want a salad and I want it now!!!!!
