  1. Just Diagnosed.....so Many Questions!

    I can assure you that pregnancy is not something I need to be worrying about! haha! Thank you for both your replies. Thats really helpful advice about asking how many biopsies they will take, although as I am from England and we have the NHS I cant use the excuse of I'm paying for it I hope it does come back positive as then its 100% closure for me and I can just get on with things as at the moment Im just so tired everyday eating my normal food! When I visited the doctor for my bloods he said to me 'You have celiacs disease' so I would've thought he would be very sure to tell me something like that. Its all a big learning curve!
  2. Hi Guys, I got told by the doctor about 1 month ago I had Celiacs following a positive blood test and just have some questions which are probably so simple but cant get my head round them. Would really appreciate some advice! So my questions are: 1. Is there a chance that my bloods can be tested positive and my biopsy (in 1 months time) could come back negative? Or is a blood test enough for the doctor to 100% diagnose me? 2. Every morning if I wake up early, working days, I feel really really sick for about 1 hour, is this normal? (I am eating my normal diet at the moment until I go to hospital, my normal diet is high in gluten ) I also tend to find the less sleep I have the more sick I feel in the morning. 3. How does everyone cope with going on holiday as Im going to spain in September and panicking about my eating options!! Thank you for looking at my post, any help would be great!
