Thanks so much for your feedback! It really opens your eyes to the diversity and magnitude of this curious disease. I'll find out on Monday weather the celiac test is negative or positive, but know that one test doesn't determine the overall problem.
Have a great weekend
my son was first diagnosed with celiac - based upon symptoms. A really good book to read about it is Going Against the Grain by Melissa Diane Smith. In it she writes about Celiac, gluten allergy, and glueton sensitivity, and the tests that or done to dx. She gives a lot of recipes and meal plans, full of gluton free substitues. She also gives a list of supplements to augment a gluten free diet. My experince with it was that it was hard to find the grain substitutes, and took a lot more time to prepare a meal... I also found out the hard way that the diet full of raw fresh vegies and fruit, can do a lot of damage to someone with cd. My sympathy goes out to anyone that has to live gluten free....
