  1. I know you know what your talking about. But, since the new Dr. may not be familiar with celiac testing, do you have a link to a medical information page that tells which blood tests are most important?
  2. Should I go a primary doctor or a specialist Should I go to a primary care doctor or a specialist? Do I need all four of the last tests?
  3. Hello all, Per the advice of another member on this forum, I am going to make an appointment with a family practice MD/nutritionist tommorow for a celiac disease test. I am currently eating all the gluten/wheat stuff. I need any information/tips/ and advice on what to ask/which test to get. No one in my family I know of has a diagnosed celiac disease. i am a 29 year old male.
  4. Coming Back To Gluten Free

    Also, i know you said any doctor can do the bloodwork, but would going to an allergist/immunologist be better in regards accuracy? And, I have to be "on" gluten to get accurate results, right? How accurate is the bloodwork tests?
  5. Coming Back To Gluten Free

    Thanks for the information. So, even though I have tested positive on an allergy panel by an md for wheat in 2005, I should get specifically tested for celiac?
  6. Coming Back To Gluten Free

    Whoa! I thought you HAD to have severe symptoms, like fecal problems. Thanks for updating me. Whats the best way to get tested?
  7. Coming Back To Gluten Free

    Pree Pretty sure I dont have celiac disease. I believe it is a wheat allergy/intolerance. i just dont have the main symptoms of celiac.
  8. Hello all, I am coming back to a gluten-free diet, as well as DF. While I have more symptoms of wheat allergies, rather than Gluten allergies, a couple years ago I had great results. I was still eating my usual portions and the stuff was even more starchy because of all the gluten-free foods. However, I lost about 20lbs and was SO much less swollen. These days, I even cheat with beer! My face is puffy and Im carrying some weight. GRRRRR So, here it goes again!
