Yes, I had this done in New York at the Celiac Center. It was simple, swallow the pill with some water, walk around all day with a device strapped around my waist, and then go back to the doctor and give him the device.

Of all the tests I've had done, this was the easiest!

My daughter was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease this week and she was told that she was going to be put on a waiting list to have this done. We were wondering how in the world it worked, thanks so much for posting this!

Hi! I'm new to this forum. I wondered how does this procedure help diagnose for Celiac. My doctor wants me to have it done after I have taken Pepto Bismo for six weeks because my colonoscopy showed I have Colitis. I also had an endoscopy done and it showed gastritis not Celiac. I have positive bloodwork, however, he does not seem convinced it is Celiac. I'm getting discouraged.

I already know I have celiac but, they want me to do the camera pill to see if my celiac is so bad I need to be on pills for the rest of my life. I'm worried about it not passing and then I would have to have it removed through surgery. How often does this happen? I have to make a choice to do it or not and I'm scared. :(

Okay - my Dr. is saying that I have to drink a bottle of magnesium sulfate the day prior to the procedure? Did anyone else have to do this.

They are in for a rude awakening when they find out I have Celiac.

Some drs. require a "prep" for this test. Mine did not. He told me that about 40% of drs. use the prep because they think there is a clearer picture.
