Welcome!  You could have celiac disease.  You have already taken the first step by asking for help and setting up an appointment with your doctor.  Here is the list of tests:

 
-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG
-Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG
-EMA IgA 
-total serum IgA and IgG (control test)
 
 
-endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken
 
VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by consuming gluten found in wheat, rye and barley.  It damages the small intestine causing malnutrition which in turn can damage your teeth, bones, all sorts of things!  The University of Chicago's celiac website is as great place to start learning.  Here is just one page about symptoms:

Hi Blue2220,

The usual testing process for celiac disease is first blood tests to check for anti-bodies to gliaden( a protein in gluten).  And then an endoscopy to take 5 or so biopsy sample of the small intestine.  They check the biopsy samples for a specific type of damage that shows up sometimes in celiac disease at times, usually after the disease has progressed for a while.  In the early stages the intestinal damage may not show up though.

Celiac damages the lining of the small intestine making it hard for the body to absorb nutrients (vitamins, minerals, fats, etc).  So lots of body organs are affected when that happens.

Because it is auto-immune the reactions are different from a food poisoning or temporary stomach bug.  The celiac auto-immune reaction can got on for weeks to months before tapering off.  It doesn't take much gluten to start the reaction either.

Once you get diagnosed and start the gluten-free diet you will be n your way to recovery.  your symptoms might match Crohn's disease or some other gastro condition also, so it is important to get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.

And welcome to the forum! :D

My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

Hi its me again i have gastroenterologist in 12 february (probably blood tests)and then endoscopy in 3 months. 

I had dentist he again mentioned celiac and we had a realy long talk about it he explaind to me all about gluten and celiac he knows someone with celliac.He told me that i may have only gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity (is it the same thing?) but he is 100% sure that gluten is bad for me.
So he told me cut gluten even if i dont have celiac .So now i made bucket list of all my favorite gluten food that i like .So now i am searcing for my favorite food but gluten free replacments i am not buying food yet but it looks that i have aproxmnatly 3months until tests are done.Or if tests came back negative i will start gluten free food when ill get the job.But sadly i must be prepared to go gluten free

Just make sure you don't go gluten free until ALL testing is done including the endoscopy. It is true that there is no test yet for non celiac gluten intolerance/sensitivity. There is still a lot of research yet to be done on that. At this point, they believe it may damage you neurologically -- at least that's the last I heard. 

It is wonderful that your dentist is so knowledgable about celiac but you need to tell him to NOT tell anyone to go gluten free UNTIL all testing is completed. And to tell them not to even do a "trial" to see how they feel off of gluten. The reason is that most celiacs who have been off of gluten for a "trial" react MUCH more strongly when they have to go back on gluten for testing -- often they get far too sick to complete the time needed eating gluten for testing; and then they end up not being able to get a diagnosis.
