Hello all... I'm new here.
I just got back from my doctor's appointment and he let me know that the blood tests were positive for celiac. However, he said that I didn't need to worry too much about it, as so many people are diagnosed with it now that it won't kill me.
(I also had allergy testing done yesterday and showed up having a significant allergy to practically every substance known to man, including eggs, corn, milk & soy.)
The doctor told me to avoid all these foods (eat only rice, chicken & tomatoes) for 2-3 weeks while the Allegra-D & Singulair took effect, and then to start reintroducing things until I developed symptoms again.
From everything I've read on the web... if you show up with positive blood tests for celiac, you need to avoid gluten. period.
So my question is... has anyone else had this experience and whose out of line here, my doctor or me?
