Anyone's Doctor Diagnos Them On Symptoms Alone?

Recommended Posts

I am just curious! If anyone's doctor has diagnosed them on symptoms alOne?

It's been a year since I went gluten-free! I am quit good at it now! I went 4 months without a glutening! My last glutening was a Tostito Mulitgrain chip the size of a silver dollar....it was enough that within 2 hours my pinky got itchy, by 5 hours I had broken out into the rash on my pinky! It only lasted a week....but I realized how much it confirmed that I cannot have gluten! It was actually a nice reminder (besides how painfully itchy the rash is...and annoying!)

I could quite literally go to the doctor show him my clear pinky skin...go home and eat a cracker and the next day get rechecked with my rash! Lol! I just don't think any doctor would do it.

Probably wouldn't be enough antibodies anyway! :P

It's frustrating! I feel like any other medical issue doctors go with the "if it walk and talks like a duck, it must be a duck!" but not this. You HAVE to have the antibodies to have a clear diagnosis. My dermatologist nearly appologized for not being able to give me the official diagnosis due to a negative biopsy. Some day the medical field will wise up, I hope!
