Gi Appt. Today Finally!

Recommended Posts

I finally am going to have my first consultation w/ a new GI doctor today and am very nervous. What kind of questions would you guys recommend I ask? I have printed off a copy of all my symptoms and plan to just give it to him and let him go from there. How should I mention Celiac? Should I bother to show him my Enterolab results?

I'm so worried I'm just going to get the "IBS" diagnosis I got 18 years ago. :(

Thanks for any ideas and wish me luck :unsure:

I'm not aware of any history of Celiac in my family -- my father has some of the same digestive issues (diarrhea) that I have, although, probably not as bad -- he has diarrhea probably once or twice a week where I have it much more frequently (I have other symptoms too). He had a prick test that said he was allergic to wheat a long time ago, but he doesn't stay away from it. My mom has problems w/ H. Pylori and has an esophogeal stricture -- she has trouble eating from it and vomits a lot.

My enterolab results were:

Fecal Antigliadin IgA 23 (normal <10)

Fecal Antitissue Transglutaminase IgA 16 (normal <10)

Microscopic Fecal Fat was normal
