99.9% Sure Its Celiac

Recommended Posts

After getting the high level blood test results we followed up with an endoscopy and after the Dr is now even more sure its Celiac. The villi was pretty flat and smooth in areas. So Gluten Free here we come! I'm looking forward to seeing my little girl happy healthy and playful again.

I will most likely be an often visitor here with lots of questions! ;)

Congratulations on getting a diagnosis! And, welcome to the board. I wish I had been on this board when I was first diagnosed, it would have made my life so much easier. This board is really the best resource out there. The other resource I recommend is the book listed in my signature...it is a wonderful medical reference.

Best of luck, and I hope your sweet girl's health improves!!!! She's lucky to have a caring mom like you.
