Has anyone got any suggestions on what I should do please. I have a diagnosis of SLE lupus and sjgrens this came to light because I had pancreatitis for a second time. on a blood test Dec 2013 it showed positive for coeliac, a biopsy in Jan 2014 was negative. Because I was having lots of problems, pains, bloating etc I followed a coeliac diet and started to feel much better, less pain, no bloating unless I made a mistake with food. I have to have regular blood tests and each time the coeliac screen comes up positive. The GP phoned today saying my bloods are positive again so they want me to have another biopsy.
My daughter was diagnosed with coeliac July 2014, she says they shouldn't need to do a biopsy as she has the diagnosis and is a first degree relative?
Here's my dilemma I've eaten 'normal' food this week and am really beginning to feel ill, I'm not sure I can cope making myself suffer for six weeks. Does it matter if I don't have an official diagnosis? could it be Lupus or sjgrens that causes the bloods to be wrong? All I know is I feel better for following a coeliac diet and don't really want to make myself ill.
