  1. Hi Folks, had my endoscopy thursday. Doc told me my duodenum did not look normal. Will await biopsy report but expect results to be positive, have started diet 2 days ago and already feel somewhat better. I do feel kind of shaking internally but no big deal.I think it will pass. Normal bowel movement this am, no constipation!!! Maggie 123

  4. On My Way To Being Diagnosed

    Had it not been for my sister I would never suspected celiac nor my doctor as he was quite surprised and I think he will really be surprised with endo results. He is a great doc but he thinks this bloodwork was positive due to family markers showing up???I didnt say anything - the proof will be in the endo. It just goes to show that not all docs are familiar with this disease. But it will be a learning curve for him and hopefully help others in his practice will benefit. Big learning curve for me too!

  5. On My Way To Being Diagnosed

    Thanks for all your support. i will definitely keep you posted. Question - Kraft crunchy peanut butter- safe for me to eat? It has been a morning staple for me for quite sometime on toast. This is a great site and I know I will benefit from all you veteran Celiacers. Maggie 123 Canada
  6. New to this site. have been reading alot about celiac recently and need to know more. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism about 8 years ago. recently my sister was diagnosed with celiac disease. With her persistence I asked the doc to do the bloodtest on me and it came back positive. I have an endoscopy next week. Knowing what I know now I will not be surprised if endo is positive. for the past 8 years I have blamed my thyroid problems for joint pain, constipation, bloating, gas, general fatique weight that just will not budge! It is all so clear to me now! So, I look forward to gathering all the info necessary for me to regain my heslth back! Maggie123
