I'm awaiting a date to have a gut biopsy

So the only thing I'm cutting out atm is sugar, though I'm slowly adding the items I can eat, if I have to switch to gluten-free. Otherwise I can see me eating only a handful of things.

So bread & pasta is still on the table for the time being, I'm just thinking ahead, about the food items I don't really eat on a day to day basis, just bring them into my diet, just so that I get used to them,

It should a gut biopsy is the only way to correctly diagnose celiac's, unless a doctor is confident enough with the blood test results.

Gut, meaning stomach, or intestine? Have you been able to pin them down to a date for your appointment?

Sounds scary! {{{hugs}}}

I think a gluten intolerance would be tough to deal with, especially if your diet normally contains wheat products, and whose doesn't to some point? I checked online for the symptoms and as soon as I saw "weight loss" I knew I didn't have it. LOL It's that way with a lot of diseases.

Crystal Writer, I am in no way trying to humorize your problem. It can be serious. Maybe they will find out that it's not celiac, but something else. Good luck to you.
