  1. Hi All, I'm new to the board and to this tough diet lifestyle change. I have been gluten-free/WF since the end of Oct.2003.blood test confirmed no biopsy,DR. said lets see how you feel on the WF/gluten-free diet first...now I know she was wrong to have said that...RIGHT? I feel a little better,but not in the grand scheme of things I still have the big D every day,I am tiered and ache like I'm falling apart.My teeth are in need of several root canals,in general I feel like crap most of the time I have told my Dr. but she does not seem all that concerned...it should not surprise me since she is the same person who made me feel like a hypocondriac after I have complained to her for 21/2 years about the most embarrasing things only to find out it was my diet...needless to say I am angry,and have resentment towards her, lets see how you feel approach to my treatment. I was told today my blood work was fine,but ct scan for kidney pain showed calcification in both kidney's and a fibroid cyst in my uterus,is this common in women with celiac disease and is there anything I can do to prevent stones,Any info would be great.I do have an Appt to see a gastroenterologist in a few weeks at a different hospital.Is there anyone in the Boston area who can recommend a GREAT DR> familiar with celiac disease and its hidden problems. Thanks Betty
