I had my biopsy on Monday but did a three week gluten challenge prior to that. I still feel for you and I hate sitting around waiting for test results. I'm with GFNOMAD in that testing is going to change in the next few years but, until then we are stuck with the biopsy as the golden seal. Most insurance companies will not provide maintenance aftercare without it. Though I understand that intolerance is as physically devastating as CD, some insurance plans do not even offer support services for intolerance.
My last doctor did not understand CD, he had diagnosed by blood test and basically turned me loose. When I asked about support services and resources he basically asked me to recommend material for him because he really didn't know much. He did refer me to a local support group; I have yet to contact them. After I got tired of playing guessing games, I got a new doctor who is more aggressive. I just want to have solid answers, stay on my diet, and get a great support team so I can stay healthy.
I wish the same for you! =)
