I went to my doctor today.  It was a follow up to recheck a CBC, I was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia last summer (hemoglobin 10.4 and ferritin 4).  When I made the appointment I said that I'd like to talk about some GI symptoms I've had.  We talked about my symptoms, my autoimmune hepatitis and my iron deficiency anemia and she said she would run the entire celiac panel today and refer me to a GI doc for an EGD with biopsies no matter what the results of the panel.  My last EGD was 13 years ago, I have a hiatal hernia with reflux, she thinks my GI tract needs to be looked at because if it isn't celiac something funky is still going on.

It's crazy to feel lucky because I have a good doctor, but I do.  She said the celiac results may take longer than the CBC so if I haven't heard back by Monday to give her a call.  We'll see what happens, I try not to think about things, but I can't help it.
