Chevelle

The First Visit To The Gi

Recommended Posts

I intend to go to a Celiac Specialist to confirm the celiac issue, but I need to go to a GI Specialist first. What is expected in the first visit? What questions are supposed to be asked/answered, etc? What do they do?

Hey, Andrew, that is good! Also, "You are not thin enough to have celiac."
