  1. Thanks. Is there a timeframe where I should feel better as far as all these crazy GI problems are concerned? I have not eaten anything with gluten since yesterday morn and should prob carry on a few more days to see if I have results. I just get ansy and want a "quick answer" "quick fix"
  2. Hi. My doctor told me last week that he thinks I may have celiac disease. I was diagnosed 5 yrs ago with IBS and am tired of suffering and went to a new dr. He ordered lots of bloodwork and stool samples. He told me to go Gluten Free for a week and see if I feel better. This will be hard. Is going gluten free the only way to really know or will my bloodwork be enough to let him know? I really want to feel better and so if it means going gluten free, then I will but I do not want to do it if I don't have to. Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!!
