Well, I am DQ2 positive. My doctor says "You have a high risk for Celiac Disease and the fact that your symptoms nearly resolved on a gluten-free diet indicates a high likelihood that you have Celiac Disease."

I'm not exactly sure that I should be so happy about this, except that I finally feel validated. Some thing to be validated about right? But I finally feel like my quest in getting to the bottom of this is over, HOORAY!!! And now I can truly focus on continuing to stay well.

I really appreciate everyone's words of wisdom and help throughout this whole process. When I came here, I pretty much knew nothing. Now, I feel like I can take on most anyone; including an unknowledgable GI... :lol: I still feel I have a lot yet to learn. I would truly have been lost without everyone on this forum!!!

Oh, as a quick side note: He ended his letter by saying "Thank you for allowing me to participate in your healthcare."

I LOVE THAT!!!!

Congrats on getting to the bottom of things, and you're right--now you can focus on getting well and staying healthy. :)

Depends which way you look at it - is it a genuine comment of is he being cynical???!!!

Me - I read the cynical in everything!!


Ali - 50 - struggled with what I now know to be GI symptoms and poor carb digestion for at least 35 years! Diabetic type II (1997). Mother undx Celiac - lifelong diabetic Type 1 & anemic (plus 1 stillborn and 10 miscarriages after me). Father definitely very GI.

Stopped gluten & dairy, Jan 08, but still other issues so dropped most carbs and sugar and have been following the Specific Carb Diet (SCD) since March 08. Recovery slow but steady and I can now eat a much broader range of foods especially raw which are good for my digestion and boost my energy level.

Not getting better? Try the SCD - it might just change your life.........

No, he's not being cynical. He truly is a fantastic doctor. He also knows I will walk away from him if he doesn't listen to me... :rolleyes:
