I've just had a letter from GI dept at local hospital telling me to ring on Monday to arrange my consult. This is great news (decades of problems inc daily diarrhoea, many celiac type symptoms, borderline celiac results a years ago that I only found out about recently when new GP looked back through the results). My GP is fabulous, but when I asked her whether i should start going back on gluten (assuming they will test for celiacs) she looked worried and said how awful that would be for me, and I should wait to see the consultant. I've been off gluten for over a year as was trying low-fodmaps assuming IBS of some sort.
To be honest, I can't imagine any way they will NOT want me back on gluten to test, so have off my own back decided to get going with it. Mainly because I've just worked out I'm otherwise in danger of spending the summer holidays miserable (we have a 6 year old) and I really REALLY don't want to spend all the summer hols in the loos
I've had 2 slices of toast with marmite (which was heaven) 30 minutes ago and I am now blown up like a balloon (which is less heavenly...)
I'm not mad to be getting going with this am I?
