Hello! 

I have my first post-diagnosis GI appointment on Friday.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease via blood test, and DH.  

What tests do I request? What do I ask?  

I don't know enough to know what to ask.  

Thank you!

At this point it would be a good idea to request a check of your blood vitamin/mineral levels, especially: "Specifically, for vitamin A, 7.5% of patients showed deficient levels, for vitamin B6 14.5%, folic acid 20%, and vitamin B12 19%. Likewise, 67% of celiac patients showed zinc deficiency, 46% showed decreased iron storage, and 32% had anaemia."

Thank you so much!  I've started a list, and was so frustrated with my regular physician because he wouldn't order any of the tests.  I'm so thankful I found this website--so much gratitude for you!!🥰
