  1. I've been reading everyone's story about how they were diagnosed. I recently had a blood test for celiac that was inconclusive. The doctor said I had a deficency in some antibody and that would show a negative result even if i was celiac. I'm now scheduled for a biopsy as well as a colonoscopy. I'm very nervous about both procedures. Any words of advice would be appreciated Marilyn
  2. My father has been diagnosed with celiac disease and I have just gone for testing as they say it runs in families. I was following the carbohydrate addict diet for some time. I felt great and lost weight. I went off the diet because of all the controversy over it. Has anyone heard about kidney damage when following the diet long term. I found I was eating much healthier when on the diet and now that I'm off of it I've gained 30 lbs that I can't shed. What do you think?
