: Micko:thanks for asking, unforunately this computer's in a library so it's a bit hard to get to. yes, the blood tests were clear, ie did NOT indicate any thyroid trouble.... however i understand that they would oly show positive in the light of a chronic condition (such as you had), and if the thyroid is just inefficient this would not be indicated by this test, so i will ave to do some more research and then go back to my dr. to see what tests can be done. i haven't had time to do this yet.

i have some more questions for you about Caeliac disease:
the most important 1 first:
*i have had a blood test for caeliac disease which indicated i do't have it. can this be relied on, or is it the same scenario as with the thyroid test where a blood test might not pick it up unless the condition is chronic?

*i've also had an endoscopy (or sigmoidoscopy, i'm not sure which it was) of the large bowel. would this have indicated whether i had caeliac disease or not?

*does ANY amount of gluten, however small cause trouble ie, 2 or 3 ryvitas or oatcakes or a slice of bread?

*are oats such a problem as wheat, barley + rye or do you find you can tolerate them better?

*if you avoid gluten do you still get ibs? so can you have caeliac disease or gluten intolerance and still have ibs as well?

thanks Angie. MICKo.(i thought this board was gone, that's why i haven't been for a few days: last time i came to this web address i was sent to some ibs website in California which wasn't nearly so good as this one)
: I think you were supposed to get your test results were they? Hope everything is Ok!
