Three Months In - Blood Test Results

Posted by KCG91, 31 January 2014 · 1,240 views

So I collected my blood test results after three months gluten free. When I was diagnosed my ttg IgA was >128u/ml, with 'normal' being <7. Today it is at 22u/ml! Poor doc was a bit confused because for many people this would be high, but obviously for me it's a massive improvement. I wasn't expecting it to be that good, as I live between three non-gluten-free houses and although I do my best with CC, I know it could be better (Hopefully just a few more months til I get my own place!)

I'm also really relieved because for various reasons I decided not to have a biopsy done - and I had begun to think 'oh my God, what if it comes back the same, and I've wasted everyone's time and I don't have it..?!?'

So I just wanted to share that. I feel so, so much better than before I was diagnosed and this forum has been invaluable for support, information and a giggle :D I wouldn't have had the confidence to be my own advocate in situations like eating out, family meals and with doctors without it.

Cheers guys :) I'm off to celebrate with gluten free pancakes!
