It was to be a Christmas present for Mom. She requested a clean bill of health, particularly a negative result for Celiac Disease. Merry Christmas to all and to all... whatever.
That's how this all started. I am a celiac! It's confirmed, the bloodwork came back, the gastro says with my genetic history and my numbers there was no need for an upper GI to confirm!
(For those of us who live in our bodies 24/7 and would like to know more than our doctors who do a full-body eval. in 20 minutes or less, please feel free to learn more about EMA, tTg, IgG, and other letters of the Celiac alphabet at http://www.celiac.org/cd-diagnosis.php).
