I've gone to a GI doc and he confirmed my diagnosis without tests, but I wasn't too impressed with him and felt that he wasn't as informed as he could've/should've been and really only prescribed an expensive probiotic that stopped working after 2 weeks and an anti-spasmodic that doesn't help me treat the underlying cause of my presumed IBS.
I'm planning on asking my GP for a recommendation for a nutritionist/dietitian and/or naturo path doc to help with an elimination diet.
But I also read somewhere that they can do a blood tests to find elevated markers that show up with 90% accuracy in those with IBS and celiac's I believe. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/294195.php
So I'm going to bring this up to my GP and see if he'll do that and maybe even a SIBO test too.
Any thoughts/recommendations anyone?
