  1. I am finally going to talk with my PCP about starting to test for possible celiac or food allergies. I saw another post about the tests for celiac, but would it show that I have any food allergies? Are there are blood tests to get that would show intolerance/allergies to other things such as milk, soy and wheat? I want to make sure we test for multiple things so I can rule things out that may be bothering me. I do not believe I have "IBS"!!! Thanks for any information you can give me.
  2. Hello. I am new here. I was diagnosed with IBS when I was 20. That was 12 years ago. The last few years I have been reading about celiac and gluten intolerance. I am thinking about being tested. Where do I start? I asked my PCP a few years ago and she said the only definitive diagnosis is from a biopsy of the small intestine. So she said just to go gluten free and see if that helped, and if it did then just keep eating that way. I have tried, but find it so restrictive I give up easily. But, I am tired of feeling so tired and having the stomach symptoms! I did feel good when I did Atkins, so I am thinking that maybe I do have a problem with gluten or wheat. I just don't really understand the difference from a gluten or wheat intolerance or allergy. I will search around this site and read more to get more informed, but I would appreciate any advice. My husband thinks I am a little bit of a hypochondriac. I just think that I should feel better than I do. I have always had a problem with stomach bloating, cramping, and diarrhea. Plus, I am usually tired/foggy feeling, low energy, headaches, pms, and mild acne. I also have endometriosis, allergy and sinus problems. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
