Mpost. I've been a nurse for many years, if I can answer any questions I will but I am not allowed to recommend medications or supplements. There's never a silly question, don't be afraid to ask....Judy :)

Well, I am disappointed again . . . I just came back from my doctor's appointment. He went over the lab results and everything came back negative. I was just about to ask him about the celiac panel when I saw him writing it in my chart. I was surprised to find out that he had done a celiac panel on my initial labwork and that was part of the negative results. I have not gone gluten-free so I know that didn't confuse the results.

He scheduled me for a colonoscopy and still says that he thinks it is Krohn's or Ulcerative Colitis. I told him that I didn't understand how either of those could be my diagnosis since my only "like symptom" was the chronic "D" and he said that was all it took. This just doesn't seem right to me.

The colonoscopy will include biopsies so we will see what that brings. I don't understand the negative celiac panel results when I met so many of the symptoms described.

From what I have read, Chron's can also give you all kinds of trouble. Go for the colonoscopy - it will at the very least rule out a few more things and make you feel better knowing that your colon is ok (hopefully). Sounds like it is doubtful that you have celiac if you bloodwork was negative, but if the colonoscopy comes back fine too, I would push for an endoscopy. By that time they will have either found something out or ruled everything out but food allergies.
