Hi, have return from the hospital yesterday, and because of my chilaiditi syndrome, and looking through my passed history,diahara, constipation, vomiting,gas, weight loss ( 2 stone since July ) and a weired rash on my stomach and back. have told me that i have celiac disease, have had lots of blood test yesterday to check antibodies level and food related things, and now have to wait for an appointment for a gastroscopy and colonoscopy and biopsies to see whats going on Can i be put asleep for this?, have read up on celiac disease means that i have to go gluten free. Has anyone got this disease, and if so would love to hear from you and also is there any medication, as i have read that my b12, and a vitimins may be effected.
Hi, coeliac disease is an autoimmune condition, which means that the body is harming itself when it comes in to contact with wheat or other substances. I have put a link to a website here which is great to answer a lot of questions you may have. I don't have coeliac disease myself, but a friend of mine does. It doesn't have to be as bad as it sounds, so long as you stick to a recommended diet you can be virtually symptom free.
Regarding the gastroscopy and colonoscopy, different physicians have different methods, my father had a gastroscopy and was lucid, but i believe you can request sedation. You will likely be given pain relief. It is a pretty quick process. Check out the link for more information...
