Going To Gi Doc - Need Your Advice

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


From reading this forum, it sounds as though not every doc (not even the "experts") understand the symptons, tests, etc for Celiac Disease.

I know I am my best advocate. It has taken me so long to get on this Doc's schedule I am terrified of it being a waste of time.

I am consuming gluten in prep for this visit. I had been off it only 2 or 3 weeks and started back up again (maybe on the first? can't remember). I see him on the 30th of this month.

What blood tests and other tests to I need to be sure he does? Anyone have a checklist? It just seems so many docs are very ill informed. Do I need to point out certain things to him (like the fact that even if the villa is only inflammed that is a predictor?) I'm nervous b/c while he has a great reputation (and apparently hard to book!) I see nothing on his profile that shows his area of expertise is Celiac....

Please advise! Thank you!
