    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

My biopsy results came back negative with no evidence of celiac damage. I had a GI Dr, friend of my MOM'S, say go gluten free anyway. He said, if she thinks it's celiac, it quite possibly is.

We are taking a trip December 31st through January 7th, I think when we return, I will go gluten free. If my symptoms disappear or get a lot better, then I guess we know.

Is there a good book or quick resource guide for gluten free living?

My symptoms come and go. I have read that isn't totally uncommon. That is what makes Celiac so difficult to diagnosis. Is that true?

Have you had the celiac blood test panel done? Sometimes the doctor can miss damage in the small intestine during a biopsy since the damage from gluten can be patchy.

I think that Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Living by Danna Korn is a good book.

Several months before my diagnosis some of my symptoms would come and go, but others were always there. However, closer to my diagnosis, I was sick almost all the time. Edited by Carriefaith

I agree with the idea that going on the gluten-free diet will either confirm Celiac or not, it will just take a while. My biopsy is in Jan. just so I can get through the holidays and a trade show trip without worrying about what I can eat. But since I really only have the anemia, my biopsy could surely come back negative - neither confirming or denying for certain the pressence of Celiac disease. Without going on the diet, there is no way to tell for sure. If I go gluten-free for six months and redo the tTg test is comes back in normal limits, I'll have my answer. I'd rather just get a positive biopsy so I'd know for sure soon as I'm tired of all this medical testing stuff already and I've only been at it for four months. Good luck to you and keep us posted on how the diet goes for you.
