i got tested for celiac yesterday, though my biopsies from scopes showed no celiac my symptoms seem to point to that i have it. so now i am on a wheat, gluten, egg and dairy free diet. my doctor said that it might not actually be ibs, but to keep cutting out the eggs and dairy (and fatty foods) i have thought it could be celiac for sometime now (my mom too) and now i think i saw a lightbulb go off in my doctors head--
here is my question to you all, does anyone know anything about celiac? (all my info is from online--once again i find myself on my own...) are there forums that you know of that i can trust on celiac? (i have found some, but they seem shady to me...) how come HW doesn't have one--or do they? (i really like it here and would hate to leave, this forum helped me so much that i definetly want to join a celiac one if it is the case...)
i have a lot of questions regarding all this, my main one is that do i still have ibs if it turns out i have celiac? also the info i have found shows no description of the attacks i have, so are they ibs attacks or what?
i have been off wheat for a week and gluten free for about half a day and i must say the outcome is remarkable, but i am just so darn confused. my doctor told me that the internet was the best place for information and to shop at Whole Foods. Thanks dude... with my ibs diagnosis he gave me a pamphlet... Rock on... so realistically i just want a diagnosis and to be on my way--but i need help.
I appreciate any info anyone can provide. I truely hope everyone of you has a wonderous day!!!
what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
