Impatient For Test Results

Posted by nvsmom, 20 June 2012 · 86 views

I had my celiac screen test yesterday and I am soooo impatiently waiting for the results! I had a positive tTg home test so I'm pretty sure I have it but I want confirming positive blood tests before I drop so many of my favourite foods!

The celiac screen up here in Alberta is for tTg IgA and EMA and from what I understand, if I get positives on that then I'm in the club.... and if I get negatives then I am most likely in the club... LOL

I'm just not great with sticking with dietary changes. I've lasted about 5 months on healthy eating in the past. I basically gave up most processed food; I wasn't gluten-free but there wasn't a lot and I felt great. At the time I thought it was because of weight loss (I'm 30lbs heavier than I want to be) but looking back, it was probably diet. I had more energy, almost no migraines, my skin cleared up, I lost 30+lbs and I remember commenting on how my stomach pains went away (I get stomach aches 1 to 4 times a day for 15 to 90 minutes at a time... always have).

Anyway... that didn't last. I remember saying that I would have just one muffin and before I knew it I was back to old eating habits and gaining weight... and having stomach aches. I want those positives if I need to change my diet that much.

I hope the doctor's office calls this week! I'm so distracted by this that I'm not getting much done. Once I know, then I can get on with gluten-free eating... after one last cinnamon bun and maybe a piece of cheesecake. Hmmm, I bet a gluten-free cheesecake won't be too hard to make... There, I'm looking on the bright side. lol :)
