Re: Blood Tests Vs Stool Panel

Recommended Posts

Hi - just wondering why it seems that blood tests for celiac are inconclusive? And can I request a stool panel test via my doc? I'm in Canada and getting tests done isn't an issue if you have a doctor willing to work to find out what's wrong with you (luckily mine is!).

I had blood tests done today and she (doctor) requested lactose intolerance, glucose and the bloodwork for celiac. Does anyone know why she would have requested the lactose intolerance? Is it commonly connected to celiac? She asked me if I'm lactose intolerant and I'm not sure - I don't like milk, can't take calcium (tried 3 different kinds over 4 mos. and was sick every day - I believe some people can't take minerals - calcium being a mineral). I do like cheese, and eat yogurt sometimes.

Anyway, still have diarrhea and I'm truly exhausted and feeling sick. Bloodwork took 2.5 hrs. and I wasn't warned so had to sit and read magazines that were minimum 1 year old!

Thanks for your input!
