  1. Thank you, Jmg. I was lucky with the consultant who had a research interest in this area. He was persistent in exploring all avenues when he and his team were perplexed by the inconsistency...
  2. The outcome of the long investigations is that the consultant/professor says that I am unequivocally on "the coeliac spectrum" based upon many tests. However, surprisingly the biopsies...

  13. Thank you, squirmingitch This is pretty much where I stand after a great many investigations except that I have had the endoscopy and the colonsocopy and it is an enteroscopy...
