Good Q's To Ask The Belly Doctor?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I am going to see a new GI in a few days. As mentioned before in previous posts, I am not 100% sure what the problem is in my guts but I grew up eating gluten-free and then entered a "honeymoon" phase. Recently everything has started to come back three fold. I would love to go into this somewhat prepare. Can anyone refer me to some info to ask about this disease? I get white coat syndrome easily and don't want to leave without getting all questions answered. Thanks a bunch.

Its a shame noone has answered this as yet....................because I too am going to see my doctor, and wanted some good question to ask, so I would leave more informed...

But I guess it's hard to answer this post due to everyone having different ailments, and what is a suitable question for one person may not be suitable for someone else?

When I read your question, I remembered my own GI Doc experience. I had a list of celiac related questions and he did not want to talk about it at all. Just wanted to schedule a colonoscopy at the first visit and get rid of me at the second. And this was a self-proclaimed celiac specialist.

So I hope you have a more positive experience.

If your new doctor does listen and answer questions, I would ask about testing for malabsorption, kidney and liver funtion, adrenal and thyroid function, Vitamin D, and bone density.

You may get some more responses if you expand on your question a bit. Why are you going to this doctor and what do you hope to find out?
