  1. Hello again i heard somewhere that if you have been diagnosed with celiac disease after all the tests have been done you are entitled to a prescription of food containing gluten free food. I am in the uk but i thought this had been recently discontinued? Anyone help.

    Biopsy

    Hello thankyou its always great to know that other people are going through things the same time. Yes my endoscopy is friday coming at 8.15am, been through the procedure before for diagnosing a hernia so that side of things are ok, just not sure if i needed the biopsy at first being the blood test confirmed positive but i know now that i do need it not just for me but also for my 11 year old daughter who could also be celiac later and it would be better for her to know 100% mum is celiac.

    Endo/biopsy

    Thankyou cyclinglady you give very good advice. Just gets a little confusing when i see other forums and everybody is chatting about different bloods and numbers in tests? and have you adked for this test and have you had the other test, it sounds very complicated.
  6. Hi all again i am fairly new here, i have hadmy date through next week for my biopsy, just wondering what happens after that is it further testing? Depending on results?

    Biopsy

    Ch88 yes im glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off! But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.

    Biopsy

    Thankyou squirmingitch that is useful info, i have decided to go ahead with the endo and biopsy but i know what you mean there are still alot of people out there who still think celiac is not serious and thinks it is a choice. I have a 11 year old daughter and i think it would be foolish not to go the whole hog with this has it would help her in later life if i have the gold standard confirmation as im sure some docs still dismiss it because they do not specialise in this subject.

    Biopsy

    Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn

    Biopsy

    Thankyou for your advice i am getting so confused as some people are saying you dont need the biopsy and others are saying you do need it as it comes with other tests connected to thyroid, iron etc? just want to start being gluten free asap! did you go for the endoscopy?
  11. Hi all i hope you can help me i have just had blood tests for celiac and they both come back as a positive result the 1st test was a low reading but the 2nd test was a medium result, i am now waiting a 4 week wait for a endoscopy/biopsy. Not trying to get out of the endoscopy as i have had this procedure before but is it really necessary to have this done when it has been confirmed in the blood tests, i know that they look to see if damage had been done but surely the damage is already been done. Any advice would be great
