Hi all,After having IBS symptoms for over a year, I just went to the GI for the first time. I was wondering what the next steps would be, and what he could discover from the stuff he did. He performed an abdominal/pelvic exam and then took a blood test. Is he testing for things like wheat allergies and lactose intolerance? I also was told to provide a stool sample. He then told me to go on a diet that cut out tons of foods including all milk-based and wheat-based items. So far it's been working a little bit in reducing gas and stomach gurgling, but it took me 6 days to have a BM while on the diet.Thanks!

Thanks Movinginthemorning. Isn't it also possible to test for Celiac disease and lactose intolerance via the blood test, as opposed to the extreme diet?
