I have been dealing with symptoms that include chronic diarrhea that is the absolutely worst! I have been dealing with anemia and a slew of other issues! Well, my primary decided to test my thyroid and looks like I am hyper. I have gone to the Endocrinologist and have been diagnosed with Graves Disease. After stopping gluten now for almost 1- 1/2 months, I feel wonderful! My thyroid is actually repairing itself. Also, my blood pressure has gone from a constant 160/90 to 110/80!
The primary even stated that I will probably be taken off meds for blood pressure and I probably do not have Graves disease!!!! My primary told me that I definitely have celiac. I was tested for celiac, but since I have been gluten free for this period, all tests came back negative. She does not think I need any additional tests. She said this is proof enough!
I did see a Gastro and he thinks I should be tested anyway - endoscopy and colonoscopy. I feel that these are just very nice expensive tests for the doctor to get reimbursed, and that I should probably just follow my primary doctors recommendations.
What do you think? Should I have the tests? Or does this prove that I have celiac?
