  1. Everyone here is so helpful! Ok well guys I got a call just right now( not the doctor who's testing me for celiac) but a gi I did before test to get a cbc test. She said my blood levels were fine but my sodium levels where alittle low? So I'm wonder does me eating gluten all this time has something to do with this? I'm waiting on my celiac results hopefully any day now I hear something.
  2. ok I did the blood test on friday, the gi said not to eat gluten for four weeks. so I haven't eaten gluten now for about a week. my fagtiue has gotten better, but here the thing I'm still getting cramping stabbing pain in my upper abdomien and I'm also still having green stool. (no dirreah though, never reall had that). should I still be feeling this even though I am gluten free? Last, How long do I have to wait to get my reaults?
  3. Thank you guys! Well I would love to get scoped but I think I'm going to have to get the test first for them to scope me right? the Gi I am going is the first time I'm going to. So I'm going to ask for it. Hopefully I don't get a run around, I'm not going to back down though.
  4. Hi Guys and gals, First time! First off I want to say Life hasn’t been much fun for me at all. For about 3 years I have so many days, with upper abdominal pain, recently weight loss, fatigue, mouth pain. Dark stool, green stool, brain fog and minor times of diarrhea. SO yeah it hasn't been fun. I have not been taking seriously enough by doctors and was written off for chronic gastritis (though i never felt the symptoms of that gastritis). So I been looking up on a bunch of stuff (some are quite SCARY!) But Over the last week I really have been reading on Celiac, and it hit me that this is what I may be going through. So I read about this gluten free and in the last three days I haven't eaten gluten(only gluten free food water fruits and veggies) and I felt a lot better today compare to what I have been. And abdominal pain seemed to have claimed a good amount. But I know I need to get diagnosed so I have an appointment schedule tomorrow and a different GI schedule on Tuesday. I'm going to tell the GI to test me for celiac. So I want ask since it's only been three days should i eat gluten today and go tomorrow and the test should be reliable or should I eat gluten for the nest four days and get tested Tuesday? I ask because I keep reading that you actually NEED to be eating Gluten to be tested (which sucks because I hate feeling like crap ) Lastly, how much Gluten should I eat? I'm so glad I found this place and I hope this can put my issues to bed. Thank You guys for reading!
