  1. There is way more to obesity than personal choice and "laziness" it is a symptom of broader disease, and this mischaracterization compounds people's health challenges because of the misconception that people with malnutrition conditions are always frail and thin. They are finding that more...
  2. It’s refreshing that a physician taught that mentality to you! It often feels like doctors are so busy juggling other priorities that patients aren’t really considered very high in the equation even though we are kind of the point of the whole system existing in the first place 😔
  3. Oh interesting!! ive been doing more reading today, and every study I find about people who are symptomatic with potential celiac end up having symptom relief on a gluten free diet anyway, so that seems like good justification to just take that route if they are negative. For once my google...
  4. This is really interesting, but to me the bigger question is around the biopsy being the standard of labeling someone as celiac.

  8. This has been a lifetime pursuit to try and figure out my stomachs issues. This is my first time having the DGP tested, and had the imaware screen. It came up positive but negative ttg IgA. Based on my reading, and yes I’m aware that the gold standard is DGP is only for immunodeficiency patients, ...
