My go referred me for tests and Fri I am having biopsy for celiac disease.  As you can imagine I have been struggling and just to finally be taken seriously , I hope to get sorted and get some answers. I am scared to eat for fear of not being able to leave the house.

       Well that's the endoscopy over, it seems my small intestine is inflamed and I have acid reflux too. Need to wait 2 weeks for biopsy results now.

    My biopsy results are clear, but I have been told this doesn't always mean there is no sensitivity to gluten. I have been prescribed omeprazole one tablet a day for 6 weeks to help with the reflux. I spoke with the Secretary 're results so she said the letter from my consultant would be more informative, so wait for that. So still none wiser what has caused my bile salt malabsorpsion?
