  1. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease about 8 months ago based on various blood tests with minor indicators, liver tests which showed very slight hepatitus, and finally an EGD. My GI Doctor was convinced that I had it, although I have never had any physical symptom. I started my Gluten-Free diet (I have not cheated), and went in for a follow up EGD today. My doctor was convinced we would see improvements, but visually nothing seemed to have improved. Of course he implied to my wife that I was cheating on my diet. Had I been coherant, I would have told him off. Now he wants me to take Aciphex once a day claiming that I must have Acid Reflux problems due to all the inflamation that I still have. And just like the Celiac Disease, I have never had any outward symptoms/problems with anything even resembling heartburn. I've seen the EGD pictures, and I can't deny that something is not right. Is Acid Reflux a common problem related to Celiac Disease? Is Aciphex a common medication for Celiacs? I welcome any insight. Thx - AZPhil
