???? for anyone diagnosed with celiac
I've been through a battery of tests for stomach problems and weight loss. A year ago, an endoscopy biopsy showed I had h. pylori. That was treated and cleared up. I still have all the symptoms I had before, plus the continued weight loss. Last month I had a cat scan of my pancreas...it is working fine.
Several people (not doctors) have suggested I be tested for celiac disease....I thought I had been tested with the endoscopy, but the nurse at the doctors office says it doesn't show anywhere in my chart a test for celiac. I'm wondering if I should talk to my doctor.....I really don't want to go through any more expensive tests, and I've read that the blood tests come up with alot of false negatives. Any input from diagnosed celiacs would be appreciated. What were your symptoms? Did you have to have an endoscopy? Is the gluten free diet working? Thanks!
