A Question About Malabsorption: in Post Diagnosis, Recovery & Treatment of Celiac Disease Posted October 23, 2012 · Report to Admin I have a doctors appointment for tomorrow actually. I've asked to be checked for any nutrition deficiencies. Ir got various other symptoms going in, that I'm seeing a specialist for. However, the area I live in doesnt offer any physicians who are in the know about celiac or gluten intolerance. My family doctor actually told me not to come in if I already knew I had an aversion to gluten. I say self diagnose because I experimented with the diet, and when I' try to eat gluten now, I get very I'll. I'm nursing right now and mentally can not handle to go back on gluten for one month+ just to get a positive test result. I'm trying my best to get referred for a biopsy, but the area I live in makes this hard. So, right now all I can do is eat a gluten free diet ad try to make sure Im absorbing the nutrient I need to be healthy. financially, getting this all sorted out seems nearly impossible.
