Follow Up Appointment Soon - What Labs Should I Request?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Are there any labs that are typically done around the 6th month check-up point? Does it depend on my list of complaints/symptoms or is it standard practice to check healing progress with blood work and/or another endoscopy?

Guess I want to keep my doctor in check ;) Seems to me that you all are much more knowledgeable about this disease than my PCP is.

The only thing I can think of to request is a B12 level check - this because (I think) I'm symptomatic of a deficiency in that area.

I looked at my medical records and saw no sign of an IgA or IgG lab - though I was told that my Celiac was confirmed by this test back in late February.

Thanks for any input!

Yes, all vitamins, especial D, Folic Acid, and B12. You should also get your ferritin level checked as well as thyroid.
