Just wanting to get some adivice from others with celiac disease. Mainly about testing for it. I had the blood test and it came back as low. I haven't seen a gastro docotor as of yet and I am wondering if I will have to go through with the endoscopy. Is that something that you have to have to be diagnosed? Is it done in the office or at a hospital? Also how long did it take for your symptoms to go away? Did you take any medication (like steroids) to help with symptoms until your body healed itself from eating gluten free? I have been eating gluten free for a week and a half now. It will take 6 weeks to get into the gastro doctor then who knows how long til the endoscopy. I can't wait! I am not eating wheat and I am hopeing to get better. I have skin problems that we think are associated with celiac. I am just tired of it and I would like some answers! I am going back to my family doctor tomorrow. I am tired of itching! So, any advice for me and or discussion or your story with it and the road to your diagnoses would be helpful! Thanks!
