Yay! Doctor Just Called With My 6 Month Results

Recommended Posts

I'm so excited right now. My inital numbers 6 months ago where through the roof with total viloscophy. They only did the blood tests (obviously) so I don't know what state my intestine is in yet, but my doctor just called with my blood results after being gluten-free for 6 months, and she said they are almost at a normal level. She said I am doing awesome on the gluten-free diet!!

I am on cloud 9 right now :D

Not that I wasn't completely careful and determined to live a gluten-free lifestyle before, but this is just such positive reinforcement.

That is the best news I've heard in a while! Congrats to you that all your hard work paid off. You give people like me (gluten-free for only a week today) hope that this can be done and in the end it will be worth it.

Side note regarding follow up visits regarding progress. My ex GI that called with my results last week said to call in June to schedule another endo in July so see how I'm doing. Well when I spoke to the University of Chicago Celiac Program researcher last week. She told me that another biopsy was now NOT the protocol to check progress on the diet. She said only to get the Celiac panel (blood) test done in six months and if that looked normal, there is no need for a biopsy. Then recheck again once a year after that. Has anyone else heard this? Most posts I've seen relate my exp. which is the get another biopsy in six months.

Thanks all!!

Floridanative - that all checks out with what I know. I only had the blood tests done which is the norm. at 6 months. They will not do another endoscopy on me for another year to 2 years. U of C is giving you correct info.

Glad to hear that -I'll be going in in about 2 months for my 6 month checkup.

Can I ask how you've done overall - have all symptoms stopped completely for you? Or do you occasionally have gluten slip-ups?

I've had the occassionally accidental glutenating but I have never purposely cheated if that's what you mean.

I think I've been glutened 3 times since going gluten-free. As a newbie I guess that's not bad for 6 months time, and obviously my blood tests agree :)
