  1. Poor Knowledge From Ohio Doctors

    I have been very careful as to what I am eating. I always read the ingredients and have been well informed as to what to stay away from. My doctor is younger but most here in the mansfield area are clueless. When all this started a year and a half ago it seemed like me whole body is paying the price. It started with stomach cramps and continues. It then manifested to muscle and back pain. I have had an upper GI, colonoscopy, CT scans, ultrasounds, bloodwork. All comes back ok with the exception of a test they just did on my iron level specific which shows it at 37 which they said was low but I dont know what the normal range should be. All I know is the muscle pain and back pain is severe, worse in the mornings and I don't know if malabsorbtion can play a part in that. I have been eating at Wendy's whenever I go out. I always only get a baked potato and chili which is supposed to be gluten free. I am a 41 yr old male just an FYI Thanks for any help
  2. I need some help, It has been two months since I was diagnosed with celiac desease. I had a GI that did a biopsy and bloodwork and was told I was positive. The doctor then told me about a support group here in town and told me to search the web for more information so I joined the group and searched the web. I am still having discomfort after two months of a strict gluten free diet and fowl bowel movements. A ct of the abdomen was done and an ultrasound which everything checks ok. To my understanding I may need prendisone to help cut down on inflamation. How do I convince my family doctor who knows nothing about celiac desease that I should be put on prendisone to see if that will help. If anyone has any ideas PLEASE RESPOND and Thank You.
