I'm new to the community and pretty scared and confused about having Coeliac Disease. If you could give any advice that would be great.
I had blood tests in November 2012 to check my liver and kidney function, to check my iron levels and to check for thyroid problems and Coeliac Disease. I have anaemia and tested positive for coeliacs but all my other results were normal.
I have an endoscopy next week that I haven't wanted ever since my doctor referred me (I'm prone to panic attacks). Both my Dad and my brother are Coeliacs but their blood test results were false negatives.
With all this in mind, is it worth having the endoscopy? Also, how bad is it?
My symptoms are really bad at the moment and I'd just like to switch to a gluten free diet as soon as possible.
