Re: IBS/Gluten Intolerance/Celiac Disease

Trust me when I say I have read every book I could lay my hands on in the library.

And there are numerous conditions that are not stomach/intestinal related that can develop with either celiac disease or gluten intolerance. What irks me is that my gastroenterologist knew I was avoiding gluten and starches when I saw him and yet he still told me to take a celiac blood test - which came back negative. Then he suggested a colonoscopy - which after doing extensive research before hand found that a colonoscopy will not determine if you have celiac disease. After again speaking to the doctor, he suggested an endoscopy, and yet again, he did not tell me to start eating gluten regulary for at least 2 months prior to the procedure. This is important because if being gluten free, the villi can start healing and not show true when examined. Think it is time to look for a gastroenterologist who is more knowledgable regarding celiac disease. That is the true wonder of reading and going into online forums and learning so much that others share.
