shine replied to shine's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsWell, I just got back from the doctor's office and, as I suspected, the test(s) were negative. However, the doctor wants me to be wheat/gluten free and try an elimination diet, while monitored by a dietician. So, I guess it's kind of a wishy-washy diagnosis. He thinks I'm intolerant or sensitive, posibly to gluten, possibly just wheat. At least I have this place to help me sort out what I can and can't have while I figure things out. ~shine
shine posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsTomorrow I go to the doctor. I'm real worried that it'll turn out that my tests are negative. I know that may sound strange, but Celiac explains everything, all my syptoms for all these years. It's rather depressing to look at the list of syptoms, know I have so many of them and then just *know* that the test results are not going to confirm my thoughts. How do I know? Well, the dorctors here always call if you have bad test results. I've had no call and it's been two months. I tried a gluten challenge. All my syptoms went away, only to return when I ate something with gluten. *sigh* Thanks for listening. This site is wonderful. I wouldn't have had a clue what gluten was if not for this place.
