Need To Plan Dr Visit

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten free for 7 months now and need to plan a check up with my doctor. I have to get my hemoglobin tested every 6 months so I know I will ask for that but what other blood tests should I ask for??

This will be the first visit since my dx. Thanks in advance for any help.

A personal opinion, but if yopu've improved on the gluten-free regimen, I wouldn't even consider asking for the celiac aniotbody tests this early. Maybe at a year. Hemoglobin is a good choice if you were low. B12 maybe. Have you had a bone density? If not, do so.

Thanks Richard. I have severe anemia so I have to get that checked but I will ask for a B12. I had a bone scan done in Feb.
