  1. Hi there. I am newly diagnosed with Celiac. My family doctor was the one who diagnosed me. Fortunately, my blood work came back accurately. Although, his daughter has Celiac and she tested negative to both the bloodwork and the biopsy. Once my doctor took his daughter off of wheat, all her symptoms dissapeared within a few weeks. This goes to show that the bloodwork or a biopsy is not always accurate. I strongly suggest cutting wheat out for 2 weeks, and see how you feel. It is the most accurate test, in my eyes. Hope this helps.
  2. Hi there. My doctor suggested a brand called Genestra. It is gluten and lactose free, as well as others, so it is likely that it won't bother your stomach. I can't seem to find it in Canada but it may be available wherever you live.
