I'm sure you all have a similar story, or maybe not, but either way, here's mine, hopefully someone has some advice on the issue. I have been very ill for the past year and a half, including but not limited to extreme weight loss, chronic diarrhea, bloating, cramping, malnutrition, etc. I have had every test under the sun performed: colonoscopy, upper endoscopy, CAT scans, MRI, blood work left and right, ultrasounds, etc. And here's the kicker, I'm 23 so everyone thinks I'm just a hypochondriac or something. Well finally, my P.A. decided to run a blood test for celiac disease. He said it came back POSITIVE for celiac disease antibodies or something. Well when I took this (good news, it helps to know WHAT is wrong with you regardless of what it is when you suffer for so long from a mysterious cause) news to my G.I. doctor he tells me he won't approve or recognize the results, that the antibody tests mean nothing. I had a biopsy of my inards somewhere and it was inconclusive. So what gives? I was told to try the gluten-free thing for three months, I've been gluten free for 3-4 weeks now and I feel great. I haven't felt this great in almost 2 years. Someone help.
