Hi everyone. I'm not really sure if I have celiac or not. I am having another blood test for it next week but I know that there can also be false negatives...I've had quite bad digestive problems for 18 months now, but it's only upper GI problems I get. I don't get any bowel trouble.
I just wondered if it is likely I could have celiac if I don't get bowel problems. I'm guessing the most accurate test for celiac is the biopsy, which I'm hoping they'll do, but I know I feel much healthier when I am gluten free, whether it's celiac or not. Before having the blood test I've gone back to eating rice krispies every day (as they have barley in them, hence I'm having some gluten). I'm going to keep this up for 3 weeks before having this blood test so I've got some gluten in my system, hopefully it's enough! I just can't bring myself to going back to wheat again, it makes me feel so sick, but there's other food out there other than wheat that contains gluten I suppose.
Just wondered if it sounds like celiac, if I'm just getting upper GI issues, bloating, burping, reflux etc.
