Well Begonflab, welcome to the celiac and gluten-free team; a nice place to vent the social unfairness of g-f eating. You ask about a doctor testing for these conditions and the nice explanation about the many symptoms to watch for. There is but you have to pay for it. The classic MD is not where you can direct your field of question answer. The naturopathic field of medicine has a nice board certified doctor with info time to convey it to you and in ways we can understand. My own doctor is best known for nutritional support for any condition. I have been g-f for 6 years and some things about myself and going g-f from when I first started the rewards are plenty. I am still benefing.

Good plan - One caution I would suggests is that you don't just "reduce" gluten, but go 100% off of it for at least two weeks. If you don't eliminate it entirely you won't know if the elimination makes a difference. It's difficult at first, but well worth the effort. I was amazed to have my IBS symptoms COMPLETELY and permanently resolves themselves after 10 days. I did feel pretty bad during the first 10 days and had an episode of GI revolt, but it was as if my system were purging itself of the toxin and ever after that I've been fine.

Just a warning for you and that is to read every label and also your personal products too like shampoo, soap, toothpaste etc, they put wheat in them too.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Thanks for having me. I have been researching gluten and the symptoms of gluten intolerance and most of my symptoms match. I don't know why the doctor didn't test for that. But would like to reduce the amount of gluten in my diet and see if that helps my symptoms.
