Although I fought with my Dr. About the fact I haven’t eaten gluten in 2 years, she wanted me to get the test that day.
It came back negative, so she told me to try eating it again… I ate some stuff, but at first it was terrifying. Then I was so damn constipated (tmi) that I had a crazy distended stomach and didn’t bm for over a week, I had to take a laxative for a week before I could get back to normal. It’s embarrassing when my pants don’t fit :(
I don’t give a shit(literally, haha) if it was negative, after 3 weeks, I dropped gluten like it was hot.
I’m so sick of Dr’s being dismissive, when I asked for the test originally she passed it off, and told me how good wheat is and looked me up and down and said “well, celiac patients usually lose a lot of weight.” ……thanks.
Needless to say, I still don’t have a definite answer, but I’m thinking it’s more of just an intolerance, just from the severity of my reactions compared to celiac diagnosed individuals. It also could have just been because I didn’t have it in my system for so long, then I didn’t let it settle back in? It was sooooooo uncomfortable I don’t even care if it’s not really an issue honestly.
There’s a GIG (gluten intolerance group) in Portland with connections to internists that understand these things, I’ve been trying to hook up with, I’ll let you know what comes from it!
